Week's best & worst dressed gallery

THE GOOD: I hate almost all Alexandre Vauthier dresses that find themselves on the red carpet, but not this gorgeous green number that's achieving the very easy task of making Rosie Huntington-Whiteley look like a babe. The cut outs are definitely not OTT, the skirt is just splashy mermaid enough, and the racerback style adds edge and a touch of the modern to the sequins. PS: If the world was taken over by aliens who could take on any form they choose and so just went around finding the most attractive beings and copying them, I think there'd be a lot of Rosise HW replicas to be found.

Rosie H-W and Olivia Munn are babes, while Jennifer Lopez channels a villain with a very odd superpower.
