The Week in Celebrity Fashion

There’s ever so much to discuss, dear readers, so put your bitching hats on.

YES, YES, YES, LADY MARY! This is a spec-fucking-tacular gown. I love literally every detail about it. And the styling is flawless – chic black and gold accessories for the glam factor, and those PERFECT orange earrings, which are the cherries on top of this freaking delicious sundae of a look.

Definitely my favorite Roberto Cavalli print in recent memory, and Lucy wears it brilliantly, of course. The dress fits her like a glove, and the laid-back styling lets the print do all the taking. And I love the big wavy hair.

Supremely chic. I would absolutely kill for this dress. And she could swap out the black Saint Laurents for a flashier shoe and be ready to go from a TV appearance to the red carpet.

Just your seasonal reminder that Zachary Quinto is still the best-dressed man in Hollywood. Carry on.

YUM. You WORK that color, Princess. The matching purse is a touch too bridesmaid for my taste, but she’s killing it in that shade of purple, and the jewelry is royally unstoppable.

I am all about this Erdem dress, but with the messy braid and those dowdy shoes, it’s a little too depressing for me.

I mean, come on. This is almost too gorgeous. Kerry Washington was made for that color, and those shoes? Flawless.

Not sure the purse and shoes actually go with the dress, but she’s kind of pulling it off.

Well, a fabulous fashion streak can’t last forever, dear readers. Even the fabulous Kerry Washington has to get talked into something ridiculous once in awhile. And I’m a fan of the ridiculous, but not when it comes in the form of farmgirl-couture.

NICOLE KIDMAN in Los Angeles

Almost insufferably matchy-matchy, but that’s Nicole Kidman for you. I think the dress is almost costumey, but the accessories are pretty delicious.

I could see this gown working on someone else, but not with that truly terrifying hair and makeup.

PENELOPE CRUZ in London

Lovely, if maybe an inch too long.

The bulky black accessories are a little bit much – they just distract from how sharp and fabulous this suit is. I think black was the right way to go, but a smaller purse would have gone a long way.

KATE MARA in Los Angeles

Kate Mara wears it incredibly well, but I’m still inclined to think this dress is stupid. But I do admit to having a love/hate relationship with those shoes.

NAOMI WATTS in New York City

I love a floral Erdem dress as much as the next diva, but I’ve seen a few too many of them to be too wowed by this look. And while the accessories aren’t a problem, they don’t really add anything to the ensemble either.

SIENNA MILLER in London

I loved the original, plaid version of this dress so much – it was my Resort 2014 red carpet prediction for Emma Stone. But I have to say, the little white dress adaptation with straps disappoints. Sienna Miller can look good in pretty much anything, but it’s a forgettable look, and she’s capable of more.

I loved that Lady Edith was wearing such a daring dress . . . and then I got down to the shoes. Oh, darling, why? Why would you do such a thing?

CHRISTINA HENDRICKS in Hollywood

Well, you know it’s fall when you have multiple starlets ruining otherwise fine outfits with terrible, terrible booties. Come on, Joanie. This coat is so fierce. Why destroy it with those bootie-moccasin hybrids?

ANNA FARIS in Los Angeles

This fits her terribly. Too terribly to ignore, even though I like the cut-outs at the bottom.

KRISTEN WIIG in New York City

Fire everyone around you, Kristen Wiig. You deserve much, much better than this Disney princess costume someone had lying around.
