Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Best - Helen Mirren in Escada, Palm Springs Film Fest: She’s 67 and still rocking form-fitting Escada. Bow down to the guru of age-approp, figure-flattering dressing.
Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Bad - Coco Rocha in Mugler, panel for new show The Face: It's a touch extra in Star Trek and looks mighty uncomfortable.
Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Bad - Daisy Lowe at Tommy Hilfiger Esquire Bash, London: This isn’t smack us across the face offensive, but it looks messy and Nineties throwback.
Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Good - Emily Blunt in Emilio Pucci, National Board Of Review Awards, New York: It’s minimalist, elegant and she pulls off the cut-outs without looking trashy.
Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Good - Emma Stone in Lanvin, the Gangster Squad Premiere: Emma’s the first star to don a pre-fall look, and this woven silk dress skims her figure perfectly. That said, we can’t decide if we love the also-Lanvin accessories or just find them too much. Thoughts?
Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Bad - Famke Janssen at the National Board of Review dinner, New York: The Taken actress looks amazing at 48, but this looks a little too apparition in a period horror film for us. And that length? Midi is tough.
Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Worst - Jennifer Lawrence in Valentino Couture, The People’s Choice Awards: She's amazing, but this looks like something a Texan woman that still insists on wearing her 80s wardrobe would pull out of her closet for an Oil Barons' ball.
Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Good - Kerry Washington in J. Mendel, Django Unchained premiere, Berlin: The Scandal star is having a good fashion run on this promo tour, and this dress is tangy and fun yet not cloying. As an aside though, she’s standing in the middle of a German winter, how freezing must she be?
Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Bad - Omarosa at Celebrity Apprentice press conference: At first look this is just a meh dress until, woah, it hits you that those are pants. Tight capri jumpsuits should not exist.
Best And Worst Dressed 11/01
The Good - Rosamund Pike in Erdem, Jack Reacher press conference, Japan: We weren’t convinced by her performance in Jack Reacher – she seemed to be in a perpetual state of terror – but her stylist did a good job with her promo trail looks. This dress manages to somehow make a single sleeve look good, and those Elie Saab heels are our favourite of the season.

They have swathes of stylists and the world's top designers at their beck and call, but that doesn't mean celebrities always get it right.

Every week we bring you the good, the bad and the just plain ugly in A-list fashion choices.
