The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1

Happy Monday, dear readers! Let’s judge some celebrity fashion.

Diane Kruger pulled a Diane Kruger, which is my phrase for when someone wears something ridiculously beautiful but also a little bit too strange for anyone else but Diane Kruger to pull off. I want to suffocate myself in this glorious floral print, it’s so fucking beautiful. And while mere mortals would look silly in those exaggerated hips, they’re just regal enough for Ms. Kruger.

Did anyone know that Felicity was capable of pulling out all the red carpet stops? Because honey looks FLAWLESS. And her sexy gown has pockets, making her my new personal fashion superhero.

Mean Girls’s Janis Ian in a romantic butterfly-adorned Valentino gown is still a difficult concept for me to wrap my head around, but I absolutely adore this.

Classic and elegant, but not exactly mind-blowing. But it does somehow make this 5’3″ star look about eleventy feet tall, so that’s a plus.

Eh. Pretty, but not exactly revolutionary. If you’re going to wear nothing but Dior, at least surprise me in terms of print or color or silhouette.

I feel like I’m supposed to hate those shoulders, but you know what? I think Rose Byrne is werqing that shit with aplomb. I adore the skinny belt, which I think helps balance out those giant shoulders, and the styling is remarkably chic.

So fucking effortlessly chic, like hipster-fashion is supposed to be, but almost never is.

ANNA PAQUIN in Los Angeles

She never wears anything but little black dresses, but at least this is a sexy, interesting one. Love the gold shit around the neck and the hint of sideboob.

CHLOË MORETZ in New York City

I predicted about a year ago that Chloë Moretz would wear this exact dress, because I am a motherfucking red carpet PROPHET, bitches. And if you ignore the hideous purse, which was sort of required because Coach co-sponsored teh event, this is one of Chloë’s best looks yet. Stop by the blog more often, girl. We clearly make a good team.

Modern, funky, and sexy, but the shoes make me sad.

Points for originality, but this is a big old mess.

OLIVIA WILDE in New York City

Sporty-chic and adorable. Also, this woman just gave birth like two months ago. GO AND GET IT, HONEY.

CAMERON DIAZ in Barcelona

I think the gray-white dress with ivory printed shoes is a little confusing, but mostly, I think I just don’t like Cameron Diaz’s face and so it makes me hate everything she wears. I might not be fair, but at least I’m honest, dear readers.

BONNIE WRIGHT in Orlando, Florida

Ginny Weasley hit up the opening of the new Harry Potter World wearing her favorite designer, Miu Miu. The earrings are a little distracting, but the dress is adorable. Are those unicorns? I don’t know, and I don’t care. They’re awesome.

JESSICA ALBA in New York City

If it were me, there would be coffee stains all over that fucking purse. But apparently Jessica Alba is like, a normal human being who can wear white without spilling on it. I will never understand this.

A copper dress with gold accessories isn’t a great idea to start with, and I think these colors make Jessica look awfully orange. But my biggest problem with this look is the ugly seaming in that dress, which puckers and cuts her in awkward places.

No. Those earrings are just ridiculous. Go home, Emmy Rossum, your jewelry is drunk.

NAOMI WATTS in New York City

… I mean, or you could wear a dress that fits. Just a thought.

KATE MARA in New York City

What is that yellow cape? Is she a hipster superhero? And these accessories are a nightmare. I don’t even know what to insult first. (Well, I guess that’s not true, because the cape already won that battle.)

  1. 1. I genuinely don’t know how to feel about Diane Kruger’s dress. Because it makes her bottom half look MASSIVE, and no one deserves that.
    2. I do not like what is going on with Anna Paquin’s hair. She looks like she’s escaped from One Direction.
    3. I have no words for Li Bingbing’s second outfit. No words at all.
    4. Why does Bonnie Wright, no matter what she’s wearing, look like she’s raided her great-aunt’s wardrobe to play dress ups?? There’s always a weird mismatch somewhere, and things are usually a strange length on her…
    5. WTF is up with the seaming on Jessica Alba’s orange dress. WHAT.
    6. I scrolled down like the first inch of the photo of Coco Rocha and was like “Ugh, buy a colour”. And then I kept scrolling and just stared at my screen in horror. Because of reasons.

      Fair Diane Kruger criticism, but as far as I’m concerned, she’s got the body to wear insane shapes like this. And you are spot-on about Bonnie Wright, though the awkward length might be due more to the camera angle than the actual dress.
