We get it; Jessica Alba lives in a world of yes men (and women) and therefore no one dared tell her that this off the shoulder floral-on-floral monstrosity is a What Not To Wear episode waiting to happen. But this is why women give birth to daughters—to have one honest critic in their life who will take one look at them and snap their tiny Cheerio-covered fingers and shout, “Aw helllll no.”
So Honor Warren, we blame you for this disaster. Don’t let mom leave the house looking like an English rose garden on acid. It’s your daughterly duty, kiddo.
Oh girl, no. Did Amber Rose forget she was installing dry wall in her rec room and wander down to Fred Segal before she was done? Despite what we might have loudly insisted to anyone within ear shot, these Amber Rose photos prove that no, Wiz Khalifa‘s lady would not look good even in a garbage bag. It’s too bad Amber had to go shopping in a bright yellow trash bag to prove us wrong, but hey, now we know. We’re not saying that Rose has to slip into a thong monokini every time she needs to purchase a pair of socks, but if Amber Rose’s bikini photos prove anything, at least she knows that she’d look good doing it.
Wow. Check out Jennifer Aniston in red! She looks totally sexy in this Vivienne Westwood strapless sheath, and excuse you for that cheeky pop of cleavage, Miss! This is completely unusual for the actress, because Jen’s style sheet has so far consisted of blacks, beiges and hints of metallic. Don’t get us wrong — she works whatever she’s wearing, but the colors she’s drawn to are mostly neutral. This dress shows us that Aniston still has some surprises up her sleeve (so to speak) and we love it. Jennifer wore it with a pair of sexy strappy stilettos and minimal jewelry to promote her self-titled perfume at Sephora in New York yesterday. We want more!
We’re saluting Kate Hudson right about now. She looks like she’s about to pop and getting dressed up for movie premieres can’t be the most comfortable thing to do at this stage. But look at her! She looks absolutely stunning in that primrose yellow Versace gown! She wore it to the Hollywood premiere of Something Borrowed held at Grauman’s Chinese theatre yesterday. Isn’t it the perfect choice? We couldn’t hope to look half as good, and we’re not eight months pregnant!
Even though the silhouette is completely different, we don’t know why we were reminded of that other iconic yellow dress she wore on screen in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. Looks like yellow is her color! Kate finished up her look with a ring and earrings from her new collaboration with Chrome Hearts called CH + KH. All the other celebrities paled in comparison, but we’ve put a gallery together of the event for you to check out. Ginnifer Goodwin, Hilary Swank, Kat Graham and more in the photos below.
We’ll admit that we like it when Katy Perry goes all South-Beach-drag-queen, but as Katy Perry’s Vanity Fair cover reminds us, she does retro ’40s glam even better. Not that Katy looks this flawless as soon as her head leaves the pillow, as husband Russell Brand‘s tweeted photo of Katy Perry without make-up can attest. “We were just messing around,” Perry laughs in the interview. “I didn’t really care. I mean, when I go to rehearsals I look like that. I’m every woman. It takes a village to make me who I am…. You don’t have to wake up looking like, you know, Gisele.” Sure, but does Gisele look this good with a bright-red lip? The defense rests.
After donning a red Proenza Schouler gown, Kristen Stewart left the Costume Institute Gala and headed to the after party at the Standard Hotel in what we’d call “Classic K-Stew:” black skinny jeans, knotted t-shirt, and her trusty blue Vans. Most celebs stayed in their gowns, and some even changed into a second glammed up dress. Not our Kristen! The fact that she hops out of her fancy clothes as fast as she can AND dares to dress down at an event where Anna Wintour may be cowering in a corner, judging people on their threads, only makes us love Kristen more.
Here they are, our picks for Best Dressed at this year’s Costume Institute Gala. Our finalists captured a mix of moods, from old-school glam girls Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley Greene, to pops of color on Kristen Stewart and J-Lo, to the risky and avant garde looks on Christina Ricci and Ginnifer Goodwin. The one thing they all have in common – serious confidence, which is our favorite red carpet accessory.
Here they are — our picks for the absolute ugliest, WTF-iest and just way off outfits at tonight’s Costume Institute Gala. The annual event — held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and hosted by Vogue and Anna Wintour — is arguably one of fashion’s biggest nights, and it always amazes us that so many people get it SO.WRONG. Kirsten Dunst! Riri! These are the gals we look to for inspiration, but their outfits, hair and shoes just blahhhh-ed tonight. Christina Hendricks normally wins every time she walks the carpet, but this outfit looks like something she dug out of a dumpster and smeared on her body. Naomi Campbell should throw her rhinestone-covered Blackberry at herself for this abysmal showing (Do we spy a scrunchie?!), Ashley Olsen‘s arms are sleeved in 100% fail and Freida Pinto is going to have to nail it on every red carpet for the rest of the year to make us forgive and forget this hipster douche tie monstrosity.
Kristen Stewart arrived at the Costume Institute Gala tonight wearing a stunning, full-length, apple red Proenza Schouler gown and heels (with Fred Leighton jewels), and was accompanied to the event by the designers, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough. We almost died from envy but we remembered we had to write this post and saved ourself at the last minute. This isn’t the first time Kristen has dazzled in the designer’s threads – she wore an adorable Proenza Schouler ensemble while promoting New Moon in 2009 and teamed up with the guys this year for a Vogue cover spread. We are loving the look — what do you think?
The 2011 Costume Institute Gala red carpet has just started, and we will be packing this post with every photo we can find through out the night. The second we can get our hands on it we will get it to you – scout’s honor. Tonight’s event is honoring Alexander McQueen, so we expect lots of fearless fashion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art tonight! Don’t let us down, starlets — we’re counting on you.
