The Week in Celebrity Fashion

Ms. Kruger leads the pack yet again in your regularly-scheduled red carpet bitch-fest.

You might have to possess whatever magical secret it is that makes Diane Kruger so flawless in order to pull off a print this insane, but she is killing it. The ubiquitous, celebrity-beloved “Nudist” sandal works fabulously here in a shade of navy that picks up the same color in the dress. And I love that the golden mustard shade of the purse is just a little bit different than the small pops of yellow in that print.

A career high for Nina Dobrev. What a stunning gown.

I want this dress in my closet. The neckline is chic and the silhouette is adorable. I’m not sure why Nina’s shoes are two sizes too big on her, but everything else is working.

Like a breath of fresh air, Lily Collins flew through the streets in every shade of not-quite-white, looking ethereal as can be whilst also wearing a motorcycle jacket. Also, that lipstick is SO MUCH FUN.

Why yes, I will take one of literally everything she’s wearing.

Joan Smalls is serving up some major Dornish-paramour realness. I just know Ellaria Sand would wear Givenchy gowns like this if she could.

I tend to hate gigantic flowers and primary colors, but I am sort of obsessed with this. I think it’s the random chili peppers in the print that are the selling point for me. And the shape of the sleeves, which I adore. The gorgeous styling helps mitigate the overwhelming brightness of the dress.

I can’t say I like it, but it’s Emma Watson and she’s doing a pretty good job of pulling this off. So it gets a pass.

Effortlessly cool and chic, but c’mon, girl, give me something with just a little more interest.

I like the dark lipstick, but the very light face and eye makeup doesn’t seem to work well with it. And the gown is on-trend and pretty much tailor-made for a movie premiere in New York City. It’s not my favorite thing on earth, but for Kate Hudson, it’s practically a miracle.

I am all about this look, even if Rashida’s I-have-to-pee stance is making my bladder twitch.

I’ve already spoken at length about Olivia’s love of fringe and overly complex accessories. And I liked this dress much better on Emma Stone.

I love the contrast of the delicate draping with that thick collar. Or maybe it’s a neck brace. Whatever, I think I’d wear it either way.

I’m no Tory Burch fan, and Kiernan has worn way cuter printed little white dresses than this one, but she’s selling the shit out of this.

Once in awhile, we have to remember to slow down our fast-paced lives and take the time to sit back, relax, and bask in the glow of the alien life form that is Tilda Swinton.

Sexy and chic, but she could have had a little bit more fun with the styling, especially with such a simple dress.

The “Nudist” sandal is back. I’d probably be fine with this look on anyone else, but Zoe Saldana’s wardrobe used to blow my mind every time she left the house. Lately, she’s been off her game, and it makes me sad.

I don’t care if you’re standing on sand – you cannot wear those insane platform sandals WITH A GOWN. Especially a delicate gown with soft sheer fabric and florals. This just looks ridiculous. And the matchy-matchy necklace isn’t helping.

Nicola looks as confused as her dress.

I love my pajamas as much as the next girl, but I think wearing them on the red carpet might be taking things just a step too far.

  1. I knew I would finally make it onto this blog as the photographer behind Emma Watson. My rain slicker is by North Face and my khakis are from the Gap xoxo

      I swear to god, I meant to comment on that photographer when I first looked at the picture, but I forgot to. Thank goodness you brought it up.

  2. I don’t think it helps that the Nicole Ritchie photo is sandwiched between two pasty white people, but DAMN GIRL. Lay off the fake tan. It reminds me of that episode of Friends where Ross gets a spray tan and doesn’t know which way to face in the tanning booth…
