The week's best & worst dressed celebs
THE BAD: Oh, Alyssa Mila-NO. A) Why are you gift wrapping yourself? B) Are those satin-bound strappy heels OVER opaque leggings C) The worst for last ... are you actually wearing a tie? That trend has sailed sister and ties on women are now reserved for fine-dining waitresses and other people who are FORCED to confine their necks by a polyester noose in order to continue making a living.
THE BAD: Other fashion critics called this 'brave', 'directional', 'stunning'. Come on people, put down the Kool-Aid and just acknowledge that this Dior ensemble makes the gorgeous Camilla Belle look like she's an incredibly unusually proportioned human being with a large growth on the right side of her torso and legs the width of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's but the length of Danny Devito's.
THE BAD: Debra Messing is so amazing that I'm blind to her fashion choices, but Giuliana Rancic's Dennis Basso coat is one of the more horrific things I've seen. It's like an anaemic python has swallowed <a href="http://a57.foxnews.com/global.fncstatic.com/static/managed/img/Entertainment/876/493/kanye%20fur%20coat%20ap.jpg?ve=1&tl=1" target="_blank">Kanye West</a> mid-interview, and Giuls, being the consumate professional, has adlib decided to wear the situation as a jacket to avoid any live TV dramas. Her smile on the left is her ''acting-cool-while-listening-to-Ryan-Sea-on-her-ear-piece" face. He's screaming. "RANCIC, there's blood on your white pants, angle to the right ... I repeat, angle to the right. Eva Longoria is en route ready to nip slip and divert."
THE BAD: Kelly Rowland's had a bad run at NYFW. The only possible explanation I can conjure for this fashion recession is that she's currently being styled collaboratively by<a href="http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Andre%2BLeon%2BTalley%2BRalph%2BRucci%2BFront%2BRow%2BMercedes%2Be0l91fwAsYql.jpg" target="_blank"> Andre Leon Talley </a>and <a href="http://dailypicksandflicks.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/People-of-walmart.jpg" target="_blank">this guy</a>.
THE BAD: While 90 per cent of this Schiaparelli Couture look is perfectly cool in a Tilda Swinton, Swinton-y way, those sandals are the worst. They're like Fit Flops that someone has DIY applied ripped up bin bags to and they make poor Tilds' feet look like boats, like absolute QE2s. And see Alyssa, even when rocking a masculine lock, crazy-ol Tilda knows how yesteryear ties are.
THE BAD: While I normally don't critique stage costumes, Mariah Carey deserves a worst dressed nod for sporting the most ridiculous level of cleavage ever seen in this Rubin Singer dress. When it gets to this point of exposure, you might as well just get the ladies out, amirite?
THE MIXED: From the neck down, Solange Knowles' look is in my best dressed category - the colour of that Carven dress sings on her and those Rupert Sanderson pumps are pure foot candy, but the hair and makeup? We have a Carrot-Top-the-early-years (hair) meets Mimi-in-the-Drew-Carey-Show (makeup) situation going on.
THE GOOD: Chrissy Teigen went for a fresh-faced, natural makeup look at NYFW and it paid off - she looks unbelievably beautiful. I'm also loving both of the simple yet elegant dresses she wore. I love how the shiny panels lift the Vera Wang dress to the left, and the navy and gold Badgley Mischka? Love it - that's a totally underrated colour combination.
THE GOOD: Diane Kruger owns minimalist style in this Elie Saab dress. Dear celebs that showcase their under-boob on the daily. THIS is how to rock the sheer trend in a subtly sexy way.
THE GOOD: Welcome back Jennifer Connelly's brows. How I've missed thee. Look at them. They're perfect ... Cara Deleshmeen, Jen holds the stakes in the power brow department. Right, moving on, I'm such a huge fan of this Chanel dress on JC it's almost hard to explain. The pearl accents are beautiful, it totally suits her chic yet 'this-old'thing?' style, it's oh-so wearable and it has a pocket. Love dresses with pockets.
THE GOOD: Oh M-Obama, you're amazing. The FLOTUS stormed out of the White House wearing a gorgeous silk and beaded Carolina Herrera gown while hosting the French President for a State dinner. It's dramatic, yes, but Michelle can totally pull it off. Oh, and would you LOOK at those earrings? I'd sell an organ to get my sticky hands on those.
THE GOOD: While this is never going to make a best dressed of the year list, Reese Witherspoon in Valentino shows how an interesting neckline can totally elevate an LBD. That and perfectly-applied, not-too-much eye makeup.
In our weekly best & worst dressed gallery we bring you the horrors and the hits from the week in red carpets - we only cover events where celebrities know they'll be snapped and critiqued for their fashion (so no Britney leaving Maccas in her trackies.) Why? Well because all humans - even celebs - should be allowed to look rubbish while packing a Quarter Pounder.
This week, the FLOTUS rocks the party, Diane Kruger shows us what she's made of while dowdy jackets, fur and the worst shoes we've ever seen make up the worst.
