Welcome to the fashion industry’s favorite self-congratulatory ego-fest!
Happy Thursday, dear readers! Let’s ease into our Halloween weekends with some fabness and some judgment.
Here it is, kids. Your March Fabness 2011 finalists, fighting to the death for the championship title.
The Final Four have arrived.
Cheerio, dear readers! Let’s check in with our favorite fashionable celebrities and see who wore who at the premieres of Harry Potter, Burlesque, and more!
I didn’t love this look at first, but it grows on me the more I look at it. It’s as simple as simple gets, but that’s not a bad thing on a woman this beautiful. It’s sexy but demure, boyish but feminine. A total home run, worthy of the New York premiere of Harry Potter.
This trench coat was custom made for Ms. Watson by Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer as a gift for the Potter premiere. It’s good to be Emma Watson in general, but better when your swag includes Ray Bans, a leather-sleeved Burberry trench and a giant studded purse.
More Burberry, of course. I’m simply loving the studded arms – studs have been trendy for awhile now, but I’ve never seen them used quite like this. The dress underneath is preppy-sexy done right.
The perfect showcase of a day-to-evening coat. Pairing it with those fabulous stockings and badass boots changed her whole persona from prep perfection to biker chic.
Let’s just say it – this bitch knows how to wear a coat! Absolutely stunning. The coat equivalent of a soul mate.
Not loving the shirt, which reads a little more farmer boy than wizard hero, but the jacket fits him nicely.
Absolutely, unequivocally the best Ron Weasley has ever looked. And look at those shoes – what a fashionista! Who knew?
The love child of all my favorite pop culture phenomenons, this Glee star/Harry Potter parody sensation showed up like a total fanboy in his Gryffindor tie and super-excited grin. What a cutie!
Sarah Jessica seems to have paired Bellatrix Lestrange’s costume with Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes. The result? A hot ghetto mess.
Kate’s dress, and others by designer Issa, sold out in stores around the UK just days after Ms. Middleton announced her engagement to the one and only Prince William. Though I’ve always been more of a Team Harry girl (what can I say? I love me some ginger), I can’t deny that Kate Middleton might be the luckeist woman on earth. Not because she’s marrying Will, but because…
… she gets to wear Princess Di’s engagement ring. Yes, this gorgeous sapphire surrounded by diamonds was worn by Will’s mother, the iconic Princess Diana. Absolutely breathtaking.
Great color and fits surprisingly well, considering Katy’s penchant for wearing all of her clothes a size too small. Not quite sure what’s happening with the hemline, but the fierce necklace and refreshingly normal hair and makeup are working for her. Overall? Quite delish.
Who let you out of the house like this, Mandy? Tell them this look stopped being cute twenty years ago, and get yourself a new stylist.
Ricci always has that look on her face that says, “Let’s just talk about how intriguing I am.” But she can give all the douche-face she wants if she keeps wearing such friggen adorable dresses. Although the black tights-red lipstick-severe bangs thing is getting a little trite.
Many called it matronly, and I think I’d agree if it were worn by anyone other than Ms. Carey Mulligan. But this little pixie can pull off things that normal women wouldn’t dream of. I think this dress is fantastic, and I think it feels like a modern garment inspired by fashion of yore. The necklace piece is stunning, and her hair has never looked better.
Rachel, I love you, but no matter how fabulous your dress and shoes are, I will not overlook your two-tone hair. Get your shit together and call your colorist.
There’s a such thing as too much of a good thing, Hilary. We all love us some Marchesa, but there’s a time and place for an endless supply of ruffles, and this just ain’t it.
Totally fabulous. A unique, artistic dress that’s still youthful and flattering, and a killer pair of shoes. But that’s not all Leighton’s got for us this week…
Dear readers, I wish I could tell you that your eyes are playing tricks on you. But sadly, this is reality. Leighton Meester wore a sheer low-cut lace harem-pant jumpsuit with no visible underwear. In public. On purpose. I’ll go ahead and call this a fashionpocalypse.
She looks like a pregnant wax figure drag queen version of Christina Aguilera.
She’s Cher. Who are we to judge? We wake up in the morning our mere mortal selves, and she is CHER. And her legs are still fantastic.
Stunning dress. Buy a hairbrush.
I’ll give it to Anne Hathaway – she could wear the stupidest dress on earth and still shine like a star because of how damn beautiful she is. This dress is a bit of a Christmas disaster, and looks retro to the point of costumey, but look at her eyes! Lips! Hair! She is a goddess.
Rachel Zoe’s former assistant Brad walks the red carpet at GQ‘s Men of the Year party. Dare to wear plaid, Brad. We love it.
Drake always looks delicious, and I never write about him. Let’s just appreciate a former Canadian teen soap opera actor turned rapper for being able to wear the shit out of a suit.
He looks like a middle-aged insurance salesman.
Delish! Nice tie, interesting color suit, and the stupidest hairdo since Justin Bieber.
Love me some Mike Chang, but I think this could fit better.
I usually think Artie looks the best out of all the Gleeks at red carpet events, but he really took it too far this time. The hair, the jacket, the shirt, the vest, the pocket square, those shoes – oy. Don’t use one event to show us every piece of clothing you own. It is possible to look both formal and funky without the whole thing falling apart.
Delectable. Definitely my personal Man of the Year.
And just an extra shot of uber-gay for all the nerds out there – Glee‘s unstoppable Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel) was honored in OUT Magazine’s Annual Out 100 Issue, which is exactly as gay as it sounds. I nearly wept looking at this photo of this angelic little boy grasping his Judy record next to her obituary in the news.
Apparently the AMAs were tonight, so expect some truly trashy fashion on the blog later this week!
