Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE BAD: Cara Delevingne's an it-model and she's Rita Ora's bestie so she can wear anything, right? No. This is essentially a cyclist's outfit - crotch padding and all - and no amount of kooky face and power brow is going to make that okay.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE BAD: Deb, you've made a lot of bad decisions, but this Vera Wang outfit is up there. First things first, the material of Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter's dress looks cheap, her hair's a misfire, and let's not get started on the hip-abomination/lady-parts curtain. I love Deb, I really do (she has such a tough time of it, doesn't she?), but this look is too tween-going-to-their-first-school-dance, and not enough I-play-a-bad-ass-detective-in-the-best-TV-show-ever.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE BAD: Okay, let's start with the positives - Kaley Cuoco's hair and makeup is a total win here. But that Paule Ka dress? No. Is she going to prom with Jennifer Carpenter? She has a gorgeous figure, but this toilet-paper-esque organza is doing terrible things to her torso.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE BAD: Has True Blood star Lauren Bowles dipped her face in an urn of bronzer? Sometimes I over-bronze and then catch a glimpse of myself in my rear-view mirror, but that's nothing a quick face wipe won't fix. The dress/shoe combo is also not working on Lauren, or Holly Cleary to vamp-fans. Did you know she's Julia Louis Dreyfus' half sister? Veep should've given her some style advice.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE BAD: Tony award-winning actress Cicely Tyson (and former Mrs. Miles Davis) normally looks crazy good on the red carpet, but this B. Michael couture ruffle-fest is just crazy. Jake looks confused, and I can't blame him. Apparently the Mikado silk gown was hand-draped - I'm seeing an RSI claim coming on for whoever had to pin all those ruffles. All that said, she's the fiercest looking 79-year-old I've ever seen (and fierce as in Sasha, rather than just scary).
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE GOOD: Crown Princess Victoria Of Sweden wore a gorgeous (if not a little upstagey-of-the-bride?) Fadi El Khoury couture gown to her sister Madeleine's wedding, and chose a Jenny Packham number for the pre-wedding dinner. Both looks are very royal, but still very modern - lovely.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE BEST: Princess Madeleine of Sweden dazzled in Elie Saab at her pre-wedding dinner (have I seen Kate Middleton in something almost identical before? I'm getting serious déjà vu) and then stepped out in Valentino Garavani for her big day. The silk organza gown is a winner for me thanks to the gorgeous Chantilly lace (which gives it a vintage feel) - also, she was beaming in almost every photo, and a happy bride is a beautiful bride.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE BEST (OF THE NON BRIDAL VARIETY): Sometimes I find Shameless star Emmy Rossum's personal style a touch twee, but not here, oh no. This Naeem Khan beaded gown is full-on siren, and the red lippie works so well with her rich chocolate-coloured hair.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE GOOD: Two great outfits at one event, but then could Jessica Marie Alba look bad in anything? To the left she's all citrus and zing in a lemon-yellow crocodile-textured dress by Versace (something someone like Heidi Klum would have managed to make look a touch tacky) - but it's the orange Celine pumps that really make it for me. And then, for the actual show, she stepped into a, in-my-opinion-actually-sexier, below-the-knee dress by Narcisco Rodriguez.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE GOOD: Sigourney Weaver, 63, Angela Bassett, 54 and Patricia Clarkson, 53, showed all those twenty-, thirty- and forty-somethings how it's done at the Tony Awards this week. Statuesque Sigourney wears a Michael Kors gown in a delicious shade of blue, Angela Bassett showed off her super-toned arms in a chiffon gown by Theia (Madonna, THIS is how to look sexy at 54) while Patricia Clarkson looks super elegant in a long black dress with subtle bodice detailing.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE BAD: First things first, this shade of red looks amazing on Amanda Seyfried. But this Ricardo Tisci-designed Givenchy gown? It's almost a win, but, in the end it's the great big fold of material over her stomach that makes it a fail. I'm getting serious Mary-Kate Olsen vibes, and that's hardly ever a good thing.
Best & Worst Dressed: June 13
THE GOOD: Ali Larter looks way better in this graphic crane print Monique Lhuillier gown than the runway model did (seriously, <a href="http://bit.ly/17ItrMI" target="_blank">check it out</a>) thanks to it being a perfect fit and her subtle and fresh hair and makeup.

This week we have a resplendent royal bride, a sizzling Jessica Alba and a case of odd crotch-padding.
