Whoever convinced you that chlorinated-platinum hair was working for you has clearly been on your payroll for too long, Taylor. Time to cut them off. Also, I’m pretty sure you can get that dress AND those boots at every Spencer’s Gifts at every mall in America.

LILY ALDRIDGE

This is the only dress Lily Aldridge has ever worn. But now it’s in gold. Kudos for the glittery brows, but that’s not enough to take this off the BASIC list.

JOURDAN DUNN

I probably would have liked this, if like five other basic bitches hadn’t worn the same fucking dress.

ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO
gown by Balmain, shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti

The knitwear version of the same fucking dress.

The “I made my husband wear it too!” version of the same fucking dress.

The black version of the same fucking dress.

OLIVIA WILDE

Grommets? Really? That’s the best you could do?

If it’s too matronly for Helen Mirren, a 23-year-old probably shouldn’t be wearing it.

RITA ORA
gown by Vera Wang

How many geese on ecstasy had to die for this dress?

LENA DUNHAM
tuxedo by J. Crew

I theoretically could have liked this, if Lena weren’t cosplaying as Jenna Lyons. And, of course, if it had anything to do with the theme.

ASHLEY OLSEN and MARY-KATE OLSEN

Fuck you both. If you’re too good for the red carpet, STOP SHOWING UP.

She’s been stuck in a style rut for far too long.

Careful, Katie, or you’ll trip on those hair extensions.

BLAKE LIVELY

So aggressively ignorant of the theme, it actually makes me angry.
