The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1

Welcome to another utterly fabulous week on the red carpet, dear readers.

There are few things in the universe more perfect than Diane Kruger in couture. She is an absolute work of art in this deceivingly simple little black dress. Black sandals and red nails call back to the dress while letting the couture do all the heavy lifting, and the perfectly relaxed hair and makeup have never looked better. A+, Ms. Kruger.

This might be the cutest fucking top I’ve ever seen, but as a Rocky Horror devotee, I’m predisposed to like all things covered in sparkly drag queen lips. It’s an absolutely flawless look on Hailee, particularly with those perfectly fit lady-pants and black nails.

DEAL WITH NICOLE RICHIE’S CAT EARS, UNIVERSE. I am ON BOARD. I’m not about to go wearing them out to a bar this weekend, but give me a fashion industry event to go to and I’ll purr the whole fucking night. (And I’ll wear the cat ears.) Anyway, ridiculously weird and amazing accessories aside, this flapper dress is absolutely perfect for Nicole’s aesthetic. The art deco vibe looks modern as hell with those leather leggings, too.

Phenomenal jacket. And see, you can wear white pumps after summertime without the Democracy Diva hating on you, if you wear them correctly. It’s called winter white, bitches, and Nicole Richie is working it.

Dramatically delicious.

Everyone in the vicinity of Kiernan Shipka looks better just by being near her, because her glow of fabulosity is infections. Don’t get me wrong, it’s hilarious how poorly dressed January Jones is compared to her on-screen daughter, but it takes a second to notice it, because of how fierce Kiernan is.

It’s official. I want an Ashley Madekwe fashion doll, and I want to dress her up in lots and lots of incredibly chic pinstriped outfits.

I’m no fan of the sloppy Heidi braids, but the gown is insanely beautiful, and she’s wearing the shit out of it. And Valentino’s less-sheer, cocktail-length version of this gown also made it on the red carpet this week:

Adorable, especially with the stockings. I don’t even hate the clunky shoes.

This was my Fall 2013 red carpet prediction for Helen Mirren, who I maintain would have rocked this dress hard. I suppose it also looks wonderful on a model like Hilary Rhoda, but you know. I just want Helen Mirren to be everywhere.

RACHEL BILSON in Los Angeles

There’s a slight prairie-chic vibe to this that I’m actually enjoying. That skirt reminds me of a high-fashion version of something I bought in Israel ten years ago, so I’m a little bit in love with it. And though I’m not one for the buttoned-up-to-the-neck blouse, the purse helps modernize the look a bit.

Obsessed. I couldn’t pull off those boots, but I’ll everything else about this look, iced tea included.

Love the dress; not sold on the styling.

This was my Spring 2014 red carpet prediction for Dakota Fanning, and I’m fully in love with this dress. But those silly putty pumps are so five years ago.

It’s a bit much for a seventeen-year-old, but I think she’s going through a goth thing, so I’ll allow it.

Camilla Belle, I HATE YOUR NEW BANGS. I’m sorry, but I can’t even look at anything else.

Are you actually eighty years old, Allison Williams? Good lord. Live a little.

CIARA in Houston, Texas

I’m sorry, but that thing around her neck looks positively dangerous. But I guess it’s a reasonable enough method for keeping the paparazzi at bay.

Way, WAY too much dress for her. This girl loves her some Rodarte, and she’s tall and beautiful enough to pull off almost anything, but there are still limits to what a fifteen-year-old girl can actually wear without looking like she’s playing dress-up.

I reject your see-through pants, Kelly Rowland. We will pretend this never happened.
