The week's best & worst dressed celebs
THE BEST: This is my best dressed look of the year so far. How the blazes does Jennifer Connelly make this Fall 2009 Givenchy Couture gown and its candy pink stones look so effortless? I think her easy-breezy hair and makeup has a lot to do with it (I'm glad she didn't go for a stiff 'my-temples-are-on-fire' up do). If I was to make a sci-fi movie with some kind of all-seeing matriarch queen in it that's not afraid to make the tough decisions, I'd base her look when attending the ball in which she chooses her next delegates for some blood-thirsty Hunger Games-style shenanigans on this fashion moment right here.
THE GOOD: I officially hate this Marchesa dress, and while it wouldn't be my first choice for a Holocaust Museum dinner if I was her stylist, I do have to admit that Kate Beckinsale looks good in it. This woman has a super-human ability to make clothes look good (imagine if she joined The Avengers with that superpower, then you'd know the producers were really clutching at straws to entrap a female tween audience). While even she can't make me like that train, she's making this look about 99 per cent better than the runway model did and she deserves props for that.
THE GOOD: This look is very simple but also super timeless and glam (I'm also a major sucker for a long, jacket-style cardigan: slouchy comfort disguised as something more weekday approp'. Aka, this homegirl's dream). Jennifer Hudson works this D&G skirt (which is a nice length on her) with a plain white T and a slick of red lippie. It's effortless and perfect for a daytime event.
THE GOOD: I love the cage-meets-plaid lace detail of this Lela Rose dress on Cheryl Cole so much I really hope it filters down onto the high street in a big way. Queen Chez is also rocking those Christian Louboutin 'Decollette' pumps. What a babe.
THE GOOD: While I do wonder if this eye makeup is a little harsh for such an uber-floaty Nina Ricci gown I ultimately don't care as Imogen Poots just looks so pretty in this explosion of chiffon and lace. Plus, a braided updo is always a win.
THE BAD: When I first saw the picture to the left I was all, 'oh wow those Spanish ladies know how to work a red carpet, that suit's fierce'. [This is TV personality Mireia Canalda]. THEN I saw the next two pictures. Holy mother of man-made-fibres that nightmare must be itchy to sit in on a hot day (Canalda's playing with Candida fire here). I call this: 'Business up front, creepy-adult-party-at-some-weird-Caribbean-resort-where-everyone's-ugly out the back'.
THE BAD: While the T-shirt's forgivable considering she's at a Muppets premiere with her kids, nothing else about Angie Everhart's outfit is okay (well, the 44-year-old's hair looks fabulous, but then it always does). Her choker looks painful; velour and leather is an abominable combination in this circumstance and it looks like she's borrowed those trousers from Steve Tyler (and he's already worn out the crotch). The worst bit however? Those sneakers. Leather pants and white trainers - that's like sneans on crack. And, as an owner of some size 10s I can hardly talk, but do girlfriend's feet look like absolute boats or what?!
THE BAD: It looks like Lisa Bonet, 46, and Jason Momoa, 34, have just meandered off of the set of a period film. But, alas, no, the gorgeous Miss Bonet has actually chosen to dress like a down-and-out Stevie Nicks impersonator who can do a rendition one-song-and-one-song-only ... Rhiaaaaaaaaannon. PS: HOW high are his pants?!
THE BAD: If Skylar Grey was heading to Wendys for some fries and an upsize in this outfit then power to her. There's nothing better than a trucker cap and shiny shorts for eating deep fried carbs (the oil slick on your fingers just rubs right off on that polyester short material). But no, she's at the same red carpet film premiere that Imogen Poots wore that divine blue dress to. Perhaps most perplexing is that sort of half formal top she's thrown in - I say if you're going for the drive-thru look just go full hog and chuck on a Limp Bizkit T-shirt or something.
THE BAD: Is this a piece of installation art and is Tilda Swinton actually imitating throwaway bamboo plates in a stand against disposable living and its effect on the environment? Or perhaps she's playing a lamp in a weird experimental play with no words and just people standing, pretending to be props? No, she's wearing Valentino Couture and is only taking a stand against flattering clothes. (Most fashion critics will of course love this 'dahling' because its Swintonian and she can do no wrong but I call emperor's clothes).

Who was your best dressed of the week?
Who was your worst dressed of the week?
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 in red carpets one star actually looks like she's on her way to chow down a whopper meal hungover, while another dazzles in the best gown we've seen this year so far.
2010 marks 150 years since the formation of the first militia units in Southland and Otago.
