The Week in Celebrity Fashion


Procrastinate your work and put on your bitching caps, dear readers.

Look at that sly smile. It says, “I know I’ve worn an infinite number of Dior outfits lately, but you can’t even pretend you’re sick of them yet. JUST LOOK AT ME. BASK IN HOW GOOD I LOOK.” And bask we will, Miss Thing. This is some Aubrey Hepburn-level shit right here. And those earrings are out of this world.

Love the ladypants and the purse, though I’m not sold on the slightly bulbous shape of that pixellated print top.

It pales in comparison to her other looks this week, but with a good steaming, this would actually be an exceptionally fabulous dress.

Just the right amount of slouch, stunningly draped, and the belt is killer. I seriously cannot tire of this fabulous woman.

Every single detail of this is perfect. There is absolutely no stopping the red carpet power of Kiernan Shipka.

Those ARMS. My God. They’re just phenomenal. I’m usually no fan of the minidress-under-sheer-dress thing, but the texture of this overlay dress is absolutely stunning.

It takes some real posing poewr to make this dress work, but Naomie makes it looks so fucking easy. And I so rarely say this, but I even like the ridiculously strappy black booties!

Points for being daring with the shoes, but I think they might be just a touch too random. Regardless, the dress fits her like a glove, and the print looks perfect on her.

Supremely adorable. I love the colorblocking at the top and bottom of the skirt, the floral print, the silhouette – it’s all working.

Absolutely breathtaking, but she also looks like she’s attending the world’s fanciest Christmas party.

Come on, Olivia. You’re always so close to something fabulous, but you insist on overdosing on accessories no matter what the occasion. Seriously, who the fuck would wear any necklace, let alone that giant necklace, underneath the fringed dress? This is madness, dear readers.

I predicted that Emma Watson would wear this Spring 2013 couture dress, but unfortunately, Jessica Biel got to it first, and brought her signature boringness with her. There’s nothing wrong with this look, per se, but it’s about as predictably Jessica as can be.

LILY COLLINS in Los Angeles

I’m usually buying what Lily Collins is selling, but I can’t say I’m impressed by her nightie and mental patient hair. Her eyebrows and lips remain fantastic, but everything else is a little too half-assed for me.

JAIME KING in Los Angeles

The gown version of this look was my Spring 2014 red carpet prediction for Charlize Theron, and I wish the fashion gods had saved it for her. Because Jaime King paired it with those black-and-white, almost plastic-looking sandals, and thus destroyed any chance this dress had of looking as glamorous as it should.

ALICIA KEYS in New York City

It’s a few inches too long – actually, all the proportions are a little bit off, I think. Those cut-outs look like they should sit slightly lower on her torso, and this gown really only fits Alicia in the hips and the straps. Still, girlfriend is born to wear red.

Who does she think she is, one of the Fanning sisters? What grown woman even attempts to pull off two different kinds of polka dots with a pink dress? (And not in a 1940s pinup throwback sort of way. In a nonironic, nonpunk, decidedly crotchety sort of way.)

Oh, sweetie. You are going to look back at these days and laugh, but secretly be glad that you at least attempted to pull off those shoes even though they scream “1930s big band maestro.”

Honey. That neckline. That cut-out. Unless you were mauled by a bear en route to this event, I cannot think of a reasonable explanation for your dress to be in this condition.

If Barbie would look at your dress and say, “Whoa, bitch, that is a METRIC SHIT-TON OF PINK,” you may have gone too far.

Ohmagah, y’all, cultural appropriation is like, so totally cool, and like, even though I was like four years old when these guys died, it’s like totally interesting and stuff for me to have my assistant stitch together their faces to create something that like barely resembles clothing! Oh, and in case that wasn’t enough for you:

“Please stop.” That’s what I’d love to tell Miley, but something tells me she can’t stop. And she won’t stop.

  1. What do you think of Miley’s boots? I want to hate them, but the more I look at them the more I like them. Is there something wrong with me? I’m a sucker for thigh highs, and I think it’s really the peep toe that gets me.

      Ah, the boots! I was so preoccupied with the disaster happening north of them that I forgot about them entirely. On their own/with something remotely resembling clothing, I think they would be awesome, and I think Miley would be just the woman to pull them off. I am predisposed to love anything houndstooth, and you’re right, the peep toe is absolutely awesome.
