These long-sleeved, demure gowns seem to be all the rage these days. Keira Knightley‘s gold tulle number had people split over whether it was gown … or a nightgown. We’re now asking you the same question about Olivia Wilde’s gown at the Butter premiere. We like this Grecian style on her with the light pleating and gold embellishment. But isn’t it something that Lady Marian would wear to seduce Robin Hood or something? We’ll leave the answers to you.
What is up with all these H’town chicas going dotty over this dress? The Stella McCartney spotty, Jekyll-and-Hyde dress has found it’s way on grande dame Jane Fonda in Harper’s Bazaar. It’s been worn by A-lister and all-around hottie Kate Winslet at the Mildred Pierce premiere. And now it’s made it to the star wife — Colin Firth‘s other half, Livia Giuggioli — at the Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy UK Premiere in London which happened last night. We think it’s time the dress was officially retired. Enough already, ladies! But before we bid it adieu (thankfully), who do you think wore it best?
We love Chloe Moretz around these parts. The fourteen year old has this evolved fashion sense that we didn’t even have an iota of at her age. Having said that, we love this Valentino number she has on at the Hick photo call in Toronto. Especially that teenage touch of purple nail paint. It clashes, but it’s a sweet little reminder that she is just a teenager! Because although Chloe brings a youthful innocence to this outfit, we’re wondering if it’s a tad too old for her? Leather, sheerness plus a lace bustier underneath? Are we crazy? She looks great, but we can’t help but feel it’s not age appropriate! But we’re so torn that we’re turning the decision over to you!
Much like Sarah Jessica Parker‘s technicolor dream dress from earlier this week, Keira Knightley’s red carpet fashion at the premiere of A Dangerous Method at the Venice Film Festival today has us at a loss for snap judgments. The gold tulle triggers the fabulousness center of our brains, but the long sleeves and high neck read Little Women. We imagine this is what Gaga would wear if she was some how electromagnetically sucked back through a worm hole and had to live as a pioneer bride. What do you think of Keira’s look? Are we talking the hotness or a hot mess?
It this…a lot of look. This might actually be all the looks combined. Sarah Jessica Parker’s floral color-block dress, which the actress wore to a photo call for her recent film I Don’t Know How She Does It yesteruday, sort of looks like a quilt your grandma would sew together out of your old baby clothesÃ¢â‚¬Â¦but fabulous? Or maybe if all your bridesmaids dresses gained sentience and joined forces in the back of your closet, fusing to create one evil, even more atrocious gown that ended up looking kind of hot by mistake. We honestly don’t know what to think about a dress with floral patterns, stripes, color-blocking and more florals…but we’re betting you do.
Oh, Sarah Jessica. We can’t even with this cape situation, girl. Oh no, wait, we can: Little Red Riding HUH? The actress showed up at a Moscow presentation of her new film I Don’t Know How She Does It? (AKA I Don’t Know Why’d You Name A Movie That?) in a lovely red gown with a flowing cape to match. Seriously, a cape. There’s fashion forward, and then there’s just fashion dumb. And sadly, this look falls into the latter category. Why ruin a good thing, SJP? Even worse, she teeter-tottered in giant heels that looked like bear claws. BEAR CLAWS, you guys. We blew up a photo of them below just so you could enjoy them in all their WTF glory.
Now, maybe we’re just not fashionable enough to appreciate what she’s rockin’ here. Do you like this look? Be heard below, fashionistas.
Britney Spears on a Best Dressed List? Who would have thought it possible?! While her shoes weren’t our favorite (accentuate your legs, girl! Skip the bondage braces next time) we’re feeling her LBD and damn, her face! Her hair! She’s glowing — and there’s no baby belly in sight. Also on fire tonight, the very pregnant Beyonce, who stole the show with her glow, her grin and her gorgeous red gown. We’ve got our other faves in the gallery below, including Bey’s Destiny’s Childbestie Kelly Rowland, the classically styled Adeleand Taylor Lautner, whose stylist has the casual cool thing down to a science. Well played, kids.
Look, we know it’s the VMAs and that’s celebrity code for ‘dress like a million dollar acid trip.’ But even the usual WTFers outdid themselves this time, adding accessories that only accentuated the absurdity of their already ridiculous outfits. Katy Perrycompleted her candy geisha look with an umbrella. Nicki Minajwore a face mask AND an ice cream cone necklace AND lugged around a bizarre stuffed animal purse. Jersey ShoreDeena matched her eyes with her dress. And then there wasJustin Bieber, who carried around a tiny snake in his hand the whole night. And no, that’s not a euphemism for anything, you pervs. They guy accessorized with a real live snake. We’re sure PETA’s gonna have a little something to say about that tomorrow!
From Deena’s colored contacts toJessie J‘s sparkle crutches, there’s something for everyone to gag at in our Worst Dressed gallery below! Better luck next year, guys.
John Mayer definitely has embraced a new style and we’re beginning to find it oddly attractive. Sure, he looks like he just hopped off his Jeep after a romp around the Outback, but this surly side of the singer is just so sexy. Like his average Tuesday involves a little bit o’ lion hunting, some quality time in a sweat lodge with his shaman and then some sensitive naked guitar playing. Sounds good, right? John had dinner at Katsuya last night, which is one of those Hollywood places where celebrities eat and then get photographed after eating. Not exactly a safari expedition, but it’ll do.
We have a lot of feelings about Alexander Skarsgard (who turns 35 today), the most important of which is that he is the most beautiful specimen to walk the face of the earth. We would pay double for HBO if they could find a way to incorporate his naked butt into every True Blood scene. Or how about just find a way to have him walk around naked on every series on the network? A naked Alex and the Entourage dudes? Palling around in his birthday suit with Larry David? We would watch! Oh, how we would watch.
But ASkars still delivers the sexy goods when fully dressed. Look at him in a suit! Look at him in a rumpled denim shirt! Look at him casually draping a suit jacket over a white tee that loosely hangs from his Nordic god muscles! It’s all just too much, which is why we have 20 delectable photos of Eric Northman hunking it up in our gallery below.
