The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 2

The red carpet rests for no one, dear readers. Pour your third cup of coffee of the day and let’s get this show on the road.

YES, YES, YES. This dress has everything: print and color, a phenomenal shape (that scalloped neckline! I nearly fainted over how gorgeous it is), and of course, POCKETS! Bitches love us some dresses with pockets. The matching shoes are absolutely fucking perfect, and the chic, laid-back hair and makeup are perfectly paired with that “Yes, I look this good, and no, I don’t give a fuck” expression.

She’s dominatrix Barbie in the best possible way. Love the texture, the cut-outs, the neckline, and the shoes.

Emily’s most formal look was actually my least favorite of her recent red carpet run, though it’s still a great look. I abhor the pink purse and even-pinker lipstick with this electric red gown. And though I like that the bustline has some interest, it makes her breasts look positively Lucifer-esque. I guess that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it is a bit awkward.

Lucy Liu gave us not one, but two fabulous Carolina Herrera looks during her hosting duties at the Huading Film Awards. The cascading metallic shapes on this dress are fascinating to look at, and I love how they gather around her waist to give the gown a little more shape. Hair and makeup are predictably flawless, as befits one of the most beautiful women alive.

A little more traditional, but no less gorgeous. The hair and earrings with it were a lovely, vintage-feeling styling choice.

I hope Alexa Chung plays normal with her wardrobe more often. Her hipster-fashionista tendencies lead her to terrible things like very clunky shoes and awkward haircuts, but she’s never looked more clean and fresh and lovely as she does right now. That lace bib would look insane on most stars, but she’s making me love it. And the shoes are sleek and sexy – possibly a first for her footwear – but nonetheless cool and unique.

The magnificent draping on that dress is made all the more Grecian-goddessy by her fabulous fetal accessory. I can’t even believe she can walk in those heels when she’s this far along. It does uphold my theory that celebrities develop a superhuman immunity to high heels once they reach a certain level of fame, though. (Kristen Stewart and Shailene Woodley are the outlying data, with their penchants for hitting the red carpet in Chuck Taylors, and those weird foot-shaped running shoes that are now being sued for not actually being better for your feet, respectively.)

Possibly an all-time best for Taylor Schilling. Good timing, because Season 2 comes out tomorrow and I ABSOLUTELY CANNOT FUCKING WAIT, YOU GUYS. I’m actually mad I have super-fun real-life plans all weekend because it means I can’t bingewatch the whole season in one day.

Things took a turn for the weird at the Glamour event. The hair is questionable at best, the shoes belong with a different outfit, and the dress has a little too much going on. I still sort of like this dress, but maybe not so much with the white panel in a texture that doesn’t work with the bedazzled silver part at all.

I didn’t actually know Halle Berry was still doing things, but here she is, wearing a 12-year-old Elie Saab gown. I actually love everything except the lace trim along the slit, which brings things to a French maid place. But the asymmetrical shoulders are stunning, and I love the delicate white flower detail on the dress.

I love that Margaery Tyrell chose this funky star-spangled gown. I’d like the shoes better without a platform, and maybe with one less detail around the foot, but I love basically everything else. Especially the McKayla Maroney face. QUEEN MARGAERY IS NOT IMPRESSED.

I adore this glittery Gucci tee shirt dress (I predicted Kylie Minogue would wear it). I don’t like the very different shade of gold clutch, which makes the dress look greener by contrast. And I know she can do better than those taupe pumps.

LUPITA NYONG’O in Jersey City, New Jersey

I’m biased, because I love Lupita, and this event took place at Liberty House, where my sister got married. But while I love this dress, the accessories are very heavy, and the hat is kind of cheesy. The strength of the dress and the Lupita factor carry the look, but not far.

I wish Zoe Saldana had snagged this dress, as I hoped she would. It’s just too much for Amanda, even if the dress itself is magnificent. The fit is off, the makeup is too much, and the shoes are depressing.

Lady Sansa’s dress is adorable, though the belt-bustier hybrid is a little odd. And the purse is distractingly large. And the ankle booties don’t make sense with this outfit. But she’s Sansa and she deserves all the happiness in the world so she can do WHATEVER THE FUCK SHE WANTS. #sansafeels

JAIME KING in Las Vegas

I think I could like this dress on a young girl, or a total hipster, or maybe an old lady, but I don’t like it on Jaime King. Also, is she carrying a clear clutch that has a black tassel? What is going on over there?

I usually think Helen Mirren can do no wrong, but those shoes with that dress say otherwise.

I get that wide-legged pants are a thing again because the 70s are back, but God almighty, those are some fucking ginormous pants. She might have a tiny little starlet hidden in each pant leg. I mean, I hope she doesn’t, but it doesn’t seem impossible.

I know Naomi Campbell can pull off anything, but try and tell me she doesn’t look like an evil Muppet right now. Just try.

  1. I love how pregnant stars always feel the need to pose with one hand on their bump, as if to say “I’m not fat, I’m just pregnant! Please do not remove me from your casting lists.”

    Also, I’m willing to give Lupita a pass on those shoes solely because she was at the polo and no one wants to wear stilettos for divot stomping.

    Also also, could you borrow Diane Kruger’s boyfriend for me while you’re over there stealing her dress? Kthxbai.

      LOLLLL that’s exactly what that hand-on-the-bump says. Also I am so happy Pacey ended up with Diane Kruger in real life. It almost makes everything that happens on Dawson’s Creek okay. EXCEPT NOT AT ALL.
