The week's best & worst dressed

THE BEST: Margot Robbie is a former Neighbours star, brief made-up tabloid mistress of Will Smith and the star of The Wolf of Wall Street (HOW GOOD is the trailer to that movie? That bit when Mat McCon goes full crazy and starts thumping his chest, I just play that on loop), oh, and she looks amazing in this Armani Prive dress. I love the effortless silhouette; adore how the black panel adds interest, am near-obsessed with her diamond armour ring and love how she kept her hair easy-breezy.

THE GOOD: A second look from Armani Prive on the best-dressed list this week (which is just making me wish even more that Jennifer Lawrence had struck up a deal with them instead of Dior). Zhang Ziyi is breathtaking in this red peplum gown, so much so that it's helping me get past my phobia of teensy-tiny, completely-useless-looking handbags.

THE GOOD (MOST-IMPROVED EDITION): Y'all, Christmas has come early, Miley C got through a whole red carpet tongue in mouth! Her hair is at a gorgeous length right now, her natural makeup here showcases just how beautiful she actually is and this Maison Martin Margiela look is just edgy enough (and also makes her look like a Phoenix supporter, which is okay with me).

THE GOOD: I'm not a huge fan of Matthew's been-through-a-rough-patch Buddy Holy impersonator suit, but I do love his wife Camila Alves' Dolce & Gabbana dress. I love how the black lining adds contrast, Camila's hair is next-level and I love her suede pumps (I would have played her makeup differently, however, maybe going for a red lip and a shimmery clear eye - rather than the dusky pink lip and orange eye she's rocking).

THE GOOD: Kudos to gorgeous model Lily Aldridge for looking so festive yet so chic in Valentino. I love how her lips match her shoes, I think this dress displays just the right amount of mesh and how cute is that look of love her Kings Of Leon frontman husband Caleb Followhill is pouring upon her?

THE I'M JUST NOT SURE: While I applaud Kim Basinger, 60, for rocking a Ralph Lauren masculine tailored look, I do think she's missed the mark - if her hair was all flowy and loose and less Pee Wee Herman she may be on her way to pulling it off, and maybe if she'd worn a pointy-ish feminine heel rather than a patent stormtrooper boot. Oh, and the tie is an all-out miss. I do love the contrast of Basinger's alabaster skin and Sly Stallone's 'I'm-best-buds-with-Valentino-and-we've-just-spent-three-solid-months-on-a-boat-playing-Sudoku-outdoors' shade of coca-cola chupa chup tan.

THE BAD: If Marchesa designed the costumes for the next Star Trek film, then this Prada dress Kristen Wiig is wearing is exactly what the end result would be. A) These two colours are about as compatible as Miley and Liam. B) I find the saggy sack of extra fabric around the armpit area particularly upsetting (in fact, if we just got rid of the sleeves completely and de-70s-fied the colours, I think we'd have a winner).

THE BAD: How many women in Poland are now having to rock buzz cuts so that Lindsay Lohan can have such extreme extensions? Also, I'm extremely disturbed by whatever's going on around her leg region - she seems to be wearing ankle boots and then leather tubes over her legs... where does one even buy leather leg tubes?

THE BAD: Abigail Breslin wears a dress that looks like it was crafted out of duct tape and old nude stockings that were harvested from inner-city rubbish bins. I do love the 17-year-old's fishtail braid, but the joy that brings me is negated by the fact you can see her undies skimming just below her belly button in one of the sheer panels. Seeing her has, however, inspired me to re-watch Little Miss Sunshine tonight for the 20th time: rocking Friday night in Nyree-ville.

THE BAD: If your dress inspires me to start thinking about what fancy festive linen I'll put on my Christmas dinner table, then I'd call that a fail. Once again Katy Perry falls into the overcooked trap in this Osman dress. She's rocking severe hair, a berry lip, dark eyes, extreme earrings, interesting shoulders, an awkward hemline (she seems to have actually taken up the runway version to make it shorter), embellished shoes and fancy embroidery - take away just three of these elements and she'd look okay.

THE BAD: Uma Thurman's hair and makeup here is an absolute triumph (she looks radiant) and the dress is fine - if a little Phoebe Buffay in Friends (the early years), but those shoes?! While I can only imagine how devilishly comfortable those glorified socks must be, they really are the worst shoes I've seen all year.
