EMMA STONE in New York City
dress and shoes by Valentino
I may actually cry when the Spider-man press tour is over. That’s how astonishing Emma Stone has looked, day after day, week after week. Just when I think I can’t get any more jealous of literally everything she’s wearing, she gives me preppy-funky, tailored-but-flirty, girly-and studded head-to-toe realness. And I am eating this shit up with a spoon, it’s so goddamn delicious.
KIERNAN SHIPKA in Los Angeles
dress by Prabal Gurung, purse by Jenny Packham, shoes by Jimmy Choo
The word “flawless” was invented to describe Kiernan Shipka, from her Baby Cara Delevingne eyebrows to her bow-adorned ankles. I don’t even know what this dress is, only that she is working the hell out of it when it would look positively psychotic on most other starlets.
NAOMI WATTS in Houston
gown by Preen, necklace and purse by Bulgari, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Peach shoes with a yellow dress makes the Democracy Diva have an aneurysm, but I’ll forgive it because this look is so refreshingly unusual. The gown has a fabulously vintage vibe to it, and the silhouette isn’t something we see very often on the red carpet. The color is phenomenal, her hair and makeup are perfection, and I am losing my damn mind over how gorgeous that Horcrux-looking necklace is.
EMMA ROBERTS in Los Angeles
dress, purse, and shoes by Fendi
Lovely, chic, and modern. The purse is a little bit old-fashioned for the rest of the look, but I think the straps on this dress are an absolute delight. And the shoes are downright spectacular (although blue toenail polish is maybe not the best way to show off those ladylike heels.)
KATE BOSWORTH in New York City
dress by Lanvin, shoes by Gianvito Rossi
The world’s most famous fashionistas are flocking to NYC for Monday night’s Met Gala, which means we are treated to Kate Bosworth treating the streets of Manhattan like her own personal runway. And it is the best. I do worry about her poor left hand, though – it seems she can’t even lift it under the weight of that gorgeous rock. What a difficult life.
KATE BOSWORTH in New York City
sweater and skirt by Nina Ricci, shoes by Kurt Geiger
I love this print, but it does seem decidedly autumnal for this time of year. I’m not complaining, because I love fall fashion, but it’s a little late in the season for a turtleneck sweater.
LUCY LIU in New York City
dress by Proenza Schouler, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti
Funky and fabulous, if a little bit weird in the proportions. The shoes look like medieval torture devices, but somehow, that kind of works with this dress.
CHRISTINA HENDRICKS in Los Angeles
dress and purse by Jenny Packham, shoes by Bionda Castana
Flirty and flattering as hell, displaying her teensy little waist and out-of-this-world curves perfectly. I never really love her choice in footwear, but these work just fine.
SIENNA MILLER in London
dress by Kate Moss for Topshop
Something in Sienna’s face is much more terrifying and severe than I remember. She’s always had cheekbones for days, but now they somehow look angry. Anyway, she made the best of Kate Moss’s Topshop collaboration, which was mostly fringy things that only look good on Kate Moss and her model/actress friends. It’s rare that I enjoy black ankle booties with a dress, but I actually like them with this art-deco overlay. Or maybe I’m just afraid Sienna Miller will tear out her own cheekbone and shank me with it if I criticize her.
JARED LETO in Los Angeles
blazer by Salvatore Ferragamo, shirt by Etro, skirt and pants by Skingraft, sunglasses by Ray-Ban, shoes by Vans
Stunningly gorgeous blazer. Fun and fabulous shirt. A cool skirt-pants combo that only makes him look a little bit like a waiter wearing an apron. And the shiniest, most Herbal Essences commercial-ready hair in the whole wide world. In other words, all hail Jared Leto.
MINDY KALING in New York City
dress by Finders Keepers, shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood
Great color, awesome cut. I wish the lining of the skirt matched up with the tulip shape, instead of just ending abruptly a few inches higher, but it’s a small complaint.
AMY ADAMS in New York City
gown by Tory Burch
Pretty, but kind of boring. I guess when it’s not awards season, Amy Adams doesn’t have to try to be interesting. Which is fair – that must get exhausting.
CARRIE UNDERWOOD in New York City
gown by Claire Pettibone
I really loved this at first glance, but now I can’t get over the effect that she’s wearing a ball gown on top of another ball gown. And though I loved the neckline, on closer inspection, the bust doesn’t really fit her. This is clearly a red carpet Monet. Fab from afar, but up close, a bit of a mess.
REESE WITHERSPOON in Los Angeles
dress by Oscar de la Renta, purse by Charlotte Olympia, shoes by Manolo Blahnik
The dress is almost aggressively garden-partyish, if that’s even a thing. (It’s probably not.)
SOPHIE TURNER in London
dress by Miu Miu
My heart grew three sizes when I discovered Game of Thrones‘s very own Lady Sansa wearing Miu Miu. She hasn’t quite figured out how to accessorize yet (or she’s not yet rich enough to hire a top-of-the-line stylist), but this dress shows she knows how to have fun with her wardrobe. With that Disney princess hair and legs for days, switch out those accessories and she’ll be a red carpet A-lister in no time.
RITA ORA in New York City
dress by Vionnet
I love her hair, her bracelet, and not much else. She’s wearing a tailored circus tent, for God’s sake.
NICOLE RICHIE in New York City
dress by Anthony Vaccarello, shoes by Jimmy Choo
I was ready to love this until I saw those… what should we even call them? Stirrups? I love Nicole Richie’s fashion-forward instincts, but I don’t think I’m ready for whatever the hell this is.
ZOE SALDANA in New York City
top and skirt by Roksanda Ilincic, shoes by Christian Louboutin
No. I can’t. It’s just SO FUCKING MATCHY-MATCHY. I can appreciate a good color match on the red carpet, but when literally everything from makeup to nails to accessories are such aggressively bright, patriotic colors… oy.
JESSICA BIEL in Los Angeles
top and pants by Vionnet, purse by Fendi, shoes by Casadei
She looks like the grandmother-of-the-bride at a casual beach wedding. Ten bucks says she’s got stolen Sweet’N Low in that purse.
ALEXA CHUNG in New York City
dress by Calvin Klein, purse by Dolce & Gabbana
Perfect. I was hoping to fit in a quick nap after posting this, and thanks to Alexa Chung’s outfit, I’m already half asleep.
