The Week in Celebrity Fashion, Part 1

Happy Monday, divas! It’s time for your not-so-regularly-scheduled bitchfest.

The colors are magnetic. The print is mind-blowing. The shoes are giving me multiple orgasms.

The makeup is a touch too heavy, and I’m not completely sold on the hair, but the dress is sweet as can be. And the mega-shiny black Loubs complement it perfectly.

J’adore the matchy-matchy patriotism of this outfit which really only works if you’re on a DC-set TV drama. The dotted white clutch blending in with the print of the dress? I really shouldn’t love it as much as I do. BUT I DO. Mainly because the Scandal premiere was AWESOME.

Flirty and chic, and I’m not even bothered by the peplum! I must be weakening in my old age.

Nope, nevermind. You get one peplum per week, Kerry. Otherwise Regina George kicks you out of the Plastics.

Kerry designed that purse for a domestic violence charity, so I am not allowed to complain about it. But it would have looked better with a different outfit. I do love the purple suede shoes, though.

The military-goes-glam vibe of this coat-dress is SO working. And the tangerine accessories are fucking flawless.

As a general rule, I hate nude outfits, but this is so elegant and stunning that for once I’ll just shut the fuck up.

It kind of looks like a couture trash bag. And I still don’t know whether or not that’s a compliment.

Are military buttons the new (well, not NEW, but popular-again) trend? I support it. Sometimes it can go a little too nautical, but this skirt is just perfect for her. And I am truly obsessed with that striped sweater.

I’d have loved to see her in something a bit more surprising, but it is virtually impossible to convince a French actress not to wear black to a fashion show. And for good reason. It’s simple, but there’s no way she didn’t pull every single eye in the room.

One or two fewer details and a tad less confused draping, and this would have been a runaway hit. As is, she looks beautiful, but maybe also like she’s stuck inside a fabric roll.

I only sort of understand what this dress-cape-thing even is. Also, would it kill this girl to change up her hair once in awhile? The only person more devoted than Dakota to never changing her goddamn hairstyle is Ariana Grande.

BRITNEY SPEARS in Oberhausen, Germany

Britney looks kind of normal now, you guys. I didn’t even know that was possible. Don’t get me wrong – she looks more like a well-dressed 60-year-old woman in Miami than she does like a well-dressed 32-year-old celebrity, but I’ll take it.

I read rave reviews for this all over the internet, and I still don’t really understand why. I don’t hate it, I just think it’s too long and kind of strange and will she EVER wear less than 6,000 bracelets at a time?

LEIGHTON MEESTER in Tokyo

I love me some Leighton Meester, but her hair is a cry for help, and her dress isn’t much better.

CATE BLANCHETT in Zurich, Switzerland

Where have you gone, Cate Blanchett? I can deal with the top half of this, but it descends into utter madness somewhere around the giant skirt-pockets and awkward length. I expect more from a magical centaur like you, Cate.

I really want to like this. I am a huge supporter of needlessly weird fashion, because it gives me something to talk about. But she’s gone way past needlessly weird and is now staunchly in Pilgrim-raincoat-with-a-child’s-belt territory. Oh, well. At least the shoes are magnificent.

Throw all of your accessories away. And don’t even think of showing up on a red carpet until you have written a formal apology to me for the tassels on your shoes.

I know you two must get this all the time, but I just have to say it – you’re the worst.
