Best & worst dressed: July 12
THE GOOD: Some people criticised this Jonathan Saunders dress for making Diane Kruger look 'wide'. Wide? In what universe? I actually love it - it's fresh, the colours are different, her Charlotte Olympia clutch is fun and her white nails make me want to get a mani'. She also makes the dress look a lot better than the look-book model did. <a href="http://fashionbombdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/jonathan-saunders-resort-2014.jpg" target="_blank">Seriously, check it out. She looks like she's just gotten home from a 48 hour bender.</a>

THE BEST: Blake Lively has an effortless style, and this Burberry Prorsum top and skirt combo encapsulates her ability to look fresh and glam all in one. The crystallised skirt is amazing, but I love how Blake kept it simple up top with just a tank (and sometimes a cardigan) - as she was at a cartoon premiere. A ball gown never really works when you're posing in front of animated blobs.

THE BAD: Hayley Atwell is just gorgeous, and I usually love her P.S. (personal style), but this Julien Macdonald ice skater-meets-JLo stage costume abomination is a rare misstep. I mean really, should you ever trust a man that once chose to style his hair <a href="http://www.tvchoicemagazine.co.uk/sites/default/files/imagecache/interview_image/intex/julien_macdonald.jpg" target="_blank"> like this?</a>
Best & worst dressed: July 12
THE BAD: Okay, J-Woww is at an event at a Las Vegas club - but still... A) I thought she had ketchup smeared on her torso before I realised it was her tattoo. B) This cap is unacceptable. C) This may be the worst-shaped swimsuit I've ever seen in my life.

THE BAD: I think it's safe to say every promotional appearance Katie Price makes - for the rest of her life - will be worthy of a worst dressed nod. I think these giant mushy lips may just appear in my nightmares tonight. And, can she even see past those falsies?
Best & worst dressed: July 12
THE BAD: K-Stew-copyrighted gloom-scowl aside, this is a total triumph from the waist up. But all I can think of when I look at these Zuhair Murad trousers is 'oww'. Imagine sitting all day in the office in these bedazzled bloomers, the backs of your thighs would look like puce, indented floral wallpaper by the end of the day. Oh, and isn't the point of trousers is to actually cover up your knickers?
Best & worst dressed: July 12
THE BAD: Anyone as in-tune with the world of crap reality TV as I am will know Laurieann Gibson's show The Dance Scene, and will ergo understand why I'm scared to critique her. This lady - she used to be Lady Gaga's creative director - is straight up scary: as is that hat.
Best & worst dressed: July 12
THE BAD: I didn't actually know who Micaela Schaefer was until I did a quick Google post-seeing this delightful body sausage of an outfit - but wow, oh wow, five seconds on Google Images and it became very clear this German DJ, actress and model should have been on my radar. She's like the Leonardo DiCaprio of the worst dressed world: always delivering, pushing boundaries, but just never getting the accolades.

THE GOOD: Naomie Harris' chiffon Marios Schwab dress is both interesting and yet understated. The leather corset-style belt adds interest, while simple hair and makeup keeps the look daytime appropriate. Class.
Best & worst dressed: July 12
WILD CARD: This Victoria Beckham dress divided the Stuff office due to the rather glaring exposed neon bra. But I have to say, as one who's not usually that keen on exposed undies, I actually love this. The pink bra makes sense in that it offsets those amazing Elie Saab shoes, and the high-neck of the dress and Rosamund Pike's fresh makeup makes the look classy rather than crass.
Best & worst dressed: July 12
THE GOOD: Salma Hayek is a pro. Fact. The 46-year-old wore her signature colour, black, but she keeps the Saint Laurent dress fresh with a fun braided up-do. Can we bottle her genes?
Best & worst dressed: July 12
THE GOOD: I'd say Sonam Kapoor is Bollywood's answer to Blake Lively - she's always fashion-forward, often takes risks, and almost always pulls them off. This dramatic two-tone Barbara Casasola gown is elegant and yet contemporary and subtle and yet dramatic. Love it.

Blake Lively hits a six, as does Sonam Kapoor, while exposed undies dominate the fashion fail bunch.
