Best & worst dressed celebrities
THE BAD: I think if an outfit makes it look like you have the same body-to-neck proportions as Vernon Troyer that's a fail. Also, what you can't see in these pictures of Eliza Doolittle in Chanel (well I'm guessing it's Chanel as she's at a Chanel par-tay) is that everyone else around her is wearing thick woolen jackets and, well, actual clothes. Ergo, she's obvs freezing her frilly nipples off as well, which is never worth it, no matter how much that gingham bandeau is calling.

THE BAD: Hayley Atwell is so dang purdy that I always expect her to look great, and at first I was edging towards liking this Temperley London gown but I'm going to have to do a blanket protest against pikelet underboob. I can't even imagine having a conversation with a person displaying said upside-down cleavage - I'd have to duct tape my eyes in position to stop myself just staring in plain astonishment. So, yeah, that's a no.

THE BAD: Nathalie Emmanuel (how BEAUTIFUL is she?) plays the Khaleesi's awesome sidekick lady in GOT and seemed to get confused and stay semi in costume for the show's premiere. Or rather it's like she's playing Dracula's girlfriend in some vampy musical set in the future in this Georges Chakra Couture dress-jumpsuit hybrid (and, sorry super fans, but our fine dragon lady is also looking a bit dodge in this black netting number). Thoughts?

THE BAD: Wow, she just looks so comfortable*. *READ: Not.com. She looks like she's in pain and is disallowing herself from actually inhaling. Take a breath Scar-Jo, you're preggers, put some slacks on and eat a whole pack of Tim Tams ... you're eating for two, 'member? I don't know where to look here, from the misplaced nipple tassels to the lace and tits, oh my! Scarlett Johansson's actually wearing Armani Prive but is channelling Kardashian 'Maternity' Kollection.

THE WORST: Wow, what a delicate flower. The face on the woman behind her in the picture to the left says it all really. This is Nikita actress Maggie Q (who I always get confused with Bruce Willy's wife) in Anthony Vaccarello. Now, I have just one question - most dresses worn on the red carpet are loaned, so does she have to wear plastic strips up the dress like we mere mortals must when trying on swimmers? I'd hate to be the next in line to wear this beauty - 'I want that shiz double dry cleaned Anthony!'

THE GOOD: Alright, Amber Riley is the final straw, I'm going to get me a bob. How cute does that hair look on her? She's also totally smashing Kathy Griffin in the red satin dress wars in this cold shoulder burgundy number. Babe.com.

THE GOOD: While, les-be-ernesto, Ashley Judd's face can at times look disconcertingly pillow-like, but it seems to have de-puffed here and she's looking more like her naturally beautiful self. She's also totally owning this Elie Saab gown - perfect colour, interesting yet divine draping and grace plus-plus.

THE GOOD: Yes, another look from EW! My only minor niggle here is that the PVC portion of Emma Watson's Gianvito Rossi pumps look a bit painful - it's like she's got a really weird sunburn patch, but no, she's just got plastic burn - ouchies! All that said, this J Mendel jumpsuit is so stylish and cool and that plum lip colour is too beautiful (I also like how she's got vivid scars from all the autographs she's signed. What a woman).

THE GOOD: I love how, at 23, Emma Watson has already carved out a personal style niche - minimalist, sport-luxe and never trend seeking. And this dress by Wes Gordon is right on that track - it's almost boring looking at first, but then you notice that it's actually navy, that there's a delicate layer of tulle and that it's tied up at the back by a single ribbon, and it soon sinks in that she actually just looks incredibly stunning. Love.

THE GOOD: Another celebrity making it twice - dang, Jen and Emma are having a press tour of biblical style proportions for Noah. It's like Jen is the older version of Emma - artfully sophisticated, uncompromisingly fashion forward and yet not a victim to trends. Aka, side boob need not apply! Here she is rocking a Lanvin velvet column gown - which, for me, is all about the texture and is made truly beautiful by Jen's gorgeous retro hair and perfectly-pitched makeup.

THE GOOD: While I reckon this Giambattista Valli dress could have benefited from maybe four centimetres more fabric on the skirt and that those sandals make it look like Jennifer Connelly's packing size 13s, that doesn't stop her looking positively stunning in this aqua, ruby collared dress. She can do no wrong in my eyes.

THE GOOD: This is my favourite Duchess Of Cambridge look for a while - and while that shamrock brooch seems a little excessive, I'm sure she's honouring some Irish tradition and so I'm down. I want this forest green Hobbs coat (and it's high street so for once that's actually doable!) and isn't Wills looking dapper in his ropes and all? (Again, shamrock shrub looks a bit silly, but it was St Paddy's!). Let's just hope this gorgeous couple don't have to wrap up quite as warm when they land on our shores in less than a month. Kate, I'll be the maniac wearing the shellsuit tracksuit with Diana's face all over it that looks like a character from Little Britain. 'Oh hiya!'.

In our weekly best & worst dressed gallery we bring you the horrors and the hits from the week in celebrity 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, Scarlett Johansson makes a rare misstep, undies are forgotten and Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly knock it out the park - twice!
