The Week in Celebrity Fashion

Admit it. You’ve missed me.

I worship at the altar of Fan Bingbing.

This is perfect and very befitting of my imaginary best friend who shares her amazing clothes with me.

Okay, it’s a LOT, but it’s refreshingly not-naked, and it has a sense of humor, and there’s something old-school Madonna about it that I’m really enjoying.

You have to be Rihanna to pull off those booties, but conveniently, Rihanna is in fact Rihanna.

Obsessed the houndstooth print, the matching lipstick, and Cara Delevingne herself, who basically founded the concept of eyebrows being on fleek.

I have to start casually carrying around a flower as an accessory. And telling people it’s Chanel.

It doesn’t pack the same punch as the other two, but when she keeps it simple, Cara can do no wrong.

Fun! A little casual for a gala, but supermodels just smize at you until you ease your wardrobe requirements anyway, so it’s a moot point.

Mega-flattering. I love the curves around her shoulders and the peek of under-boob.

I’m enjoying the distracting sparkles, but she’s not bringing anything particularly new or original to the table.

Serving up law professor realness, which I promise you is a thing.

This dress might have been better served if Kiernan Shipka had broken into Sandy’s home, stolen the dress, hacked off a foot of the skirt, and called it a day.

Fine, but not too memorable. I like the curly hair, though.

KRISTEN STEWART at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

The seam over that sheer tummy cut-out is absolutely killing me, but there is a universe in which I could like this. You know, if Kristen weren’t trying so hard to make me hate it.

JENA MALONE in Los Angeles

I hate the trend of celebrities wearing coats and blazers slung over their shoulders like they’re some kind of royal fucking capes. Somehow, it’s even worse and yet ten times more hilarious with a denim jacket. You can’t be fussy with DENIM.

ZOE SALDANA in Los Angeles

I almost didn’t notice how straight-up ugly this dress is – that’s how hard Zoe Saldana is selling it. Congratulations, girl. This dress is a mess, but you almost had me fooled.

She deserves better.

KATE MARA at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards

This seems intentionally awkward, no? In that hipster bullshit Alexa Chung way that I detest.

I think I could deal with the haircut OR the ruffle OR the waistline, but all three is just a nightmare.

This is admittedly not great. But I would be remiss not to harshly judge Selena’s co-stars, who shouldn’t even be allowed to promote films at this point:

The onus is always on famous women, and rarely men, to put in ridiculous amounts of effort on the red carpet, but I believe in equal opportunity judgment across the gender spectrum. I may not like Selena’s outfit, but girl is trying, while these man-children couldn’t even be bothered to put actual pants or shoes on. Can I get the number of that “SHAME, SHAME, SHAME” lady from Game of Thrones? I think she could be of good use on those two.

      I had half a post going and then got too busy with real-life things to finish it! I felt I had missed the window. But honestly, I can’t remember a single thing about the Tonys fashion other than the fact that there were an insane amount of supermodels at the event. So maybe there wasn’t much worthy of notice after all! Anything you loved/hated?

        I thought Vanessa Axente was pretty heinous. Otherwise, you are probably right.
