Yikes! Jessica Alba normally looks like she has the sort of deft stylish touch that’s made Kate Moss into an icon (see above for her past fashion hits), but we’re really not sure what she’s trying to do here. Aside from the ill-advised love-in with a bottle of peroxide (although we’re hoping that’s for a role) the knee-length dress looks like something our moms would have made us wear to look “smart” at a family gathering when we were 13, and the shoes also scream “sensible!” And once we’ve gathered ourselves, we’re then assaulted by the terrible, terrible wrongness of her scallop-edged shiny leather jacket. It’s so sad seeing a beautiful woman in bad clothes… [Photos: Splash News Online]
She’s already conquered TV and music in Britain, and now Cheryl Cole has landed on U.S. shores, and seems to be making just as good of an impression as she does in the UK. The Girls Aloud star and X-Factor judge is taking a break from filming to record some of her solo material in Los Angeles with Black Eyed Peas star Will.I.Am. Cheryl landed at LAX early yesterday wearing a thigh-skimming babydoll dress, and was reportedly surprised by the level of pap and fan attention at the airport.
Cheryl is also rumored to be in town to discuss starring in an American version of X-Factor as a judge, something which mentor Simon Cowell is said to be lining up for her – as long as she loses her Geordie accent. “He’s joked about her needing elocution lessons, but in all seriousness, it’s something she’ll have to consider,” reports Now magazine. Judging by the effort she made to look stunning after an 11-hour flight, we’d say the problems of a pesky regional accent wouldn’t be too much. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Even by Lady Gaga standards, we’ve been impressed by the crazy level in her outfits the last few days — first there was the Muppet skirt and now she’s slinking around London after her gig dressed as a mouse. Gaga dined out at hip Soho restaurant Balans in a woolly black dress (despite the hot weather), topped off with a pair of veiled ears. Yep, she’s still got it.
Despite her ever-wacky dress sense, beneath the costumes lies a pretty astute woman. Gaga spoke out about why she can’t stand the plethora of music contest shows, like Britain’s X-Factor. “I’ve not been asked [to appear], but I would never go on anyway. Music is not something you should judge others on. I have nothing to say about Simon Cowell,” she said. And then she goes and confuses everybody again by claiming she’s married to Kanye West. “I’m married to Kanye. I love and admire him so much. As I say, we’re married,” she said. Whatever you say, Gaga. We’re not going to argue with a woman with spiky ears. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Considering the fact that a handful of celebrity clothing lines (including Jennifer Lopez‘s Sweetface and Mandy Moore‘s Mblem) have gone under in the past month, it seems like Hollywood is learning a hard lesson that an interest in clothes does not necessarily make one a fashion designer. Luckily there are awesome young actresses like Emma Watson who, despite being beloved by designers and having great style, have no desire to pretend to be the next big thing on the runway.
Watson told WWD recently that she would only consider designing something if it was for charity, otherwise, she’s happy just being an actress. “I’m really not interested in doing it for my own ego. I’m not a designer. If someone asked me to do something that was beneficial to a cause, then maybe I’d consider it, but not just [to be able to say] ‘Look at me! I’ve got my own line!’”
And as for a fragrance, forget it. “[It's] gotten so ridiculous. The idea of making my own perfume makes me want to vomit.” Love her so much. Interesting though that she doesn’t mention wanting to create her own spray-tan line, since that’s also an option these days. [Photo: GettyImages]
When we go out shopping, we usually pull on some yoga pants or maybe our cleanest pair of jeans and an old T-shirt. Not very eye-catching, to be sure. Luckily, we have found the yin to our yang in old reliable Bai Ling.
Ling stepped out in all her bizarre, potentially crotch-revealing glory while shopping in L.A. recently and to the innocent bystander, it was just like looking at one of those magic eye posters – eventually you have to squint and your eyes cross a little for staring too long.

Did we miss the memo where muppets were declared en vogue? While we’re unable to identify which muppet Lady Gaga specifically beheaded for her skirt, we know one thing for sure — it’s hideous. She rocked the Jim Henson look from head to toe at a charity concert in Manchester, UK, paying homage to Miss Piggy with her blonde ringlets and light pink lipstick. While lost in Muppetland, Gaga let her nipple loose, to the paparazzi’s delight. See pic below.

How does she do it? Scarlett Johannson is the new face of Spanish fashion store Mango, and in the latest campaign pictures, manages to look sexier than most of us could ever hope to, yet again. Wearing a tight black skirt, leather vest and leopard print cropped top — a look that would scream AGE-INAPPROPRIATE SLUTTY on 99% of people — she looks damn good. Even in the shot where she has ripped tights. Sigh. Check out the rest of the photos and just come to terms with the magical effect of ScarJo. [Photo: Sean Thornton/.com]
Soleil Moon Frye, the actress who played our favorite ’80s style icon Punky Brewster, might not be tying bandanas around her knees anymore, but she’s still pretty stylin’. The 32-year-old mother of two girls (her daughters are named Poet and Jagger — that’s so Punky), has just launched a children’s clothing line called Private Label that’s eco-friendly, organic and free of allergens. It will be sold at L.A. store The Little Seed.
Frye actually had a hand in designing the line and she and her partner Paige Tolmach want shoppers to know that “you can have an eco-lifestyle and still be fun and stylish and colorful.” Celebs like Melissa Joan Hart, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore all came out for the launch of the line, but Moore was there for extra support, she’s the godmother to Frye’s daughter Poet.

Katy Perry sure knows how to keep a crowd happy. The star performed at Scotland’s annual T In The Park festival over the weekend, and wore a custom-made tartan mini-dress specially for the occasion. Cute! She also won over the crowd, saying, “I’ve seen many marriage proposals. But sorry, the answer is no. I can’t see your face, honey!”
Meanwhile Lily Allen seemed to have stopped off at the Lady Gaga dress-up stall on her way to the stage. Wearing a pair of granny undies in leopard print and some shiny tights, Lily was reportedly booed when she lit up a cigarette and proclaimed, “It’s my last gig for three days so I’m going to get p***ed tonight.”
Of course, our favorite fashion nutjob Gaga was also there, wearing a…hang on a minute, we’re sure we’ve seen this outfit somewhere before. She really must be broke. [Photos: Getty Images]
Oh, Hermoine Granger, how you’ve grown. Emma Watson made her big screen debut in 2001′s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and has been hitting red carpets and fashion shows ever since. Never a shy fashionista (note the floral camouflage number in 2002), Watson’s sense of style has evolved into one consistently praised on the Best Dressed lists. Now the face of Burberry, Watson has refined her look into that of sophistication with a splash of sexy. Take a closer look at the evolution below.
Watson’s latest gig as Hermoine, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, hits theaters July 15th.
