The problem with so much of this gold material is that it looks messy with the wrinkles and how the light bounces off of it in so many ways, highlighting all the folds and creases. Does it seem to you that there’s always an unfinished quality to Dakota’s styling? I feel like it has to do with her hair. Full Article

It’s puke green. Which is not necessarily a problem if it’s done well but it becomes even more glaringly puke green when…well… This was probably the worst dress of the night for me. Worst is always in relation to the subject’s potential to be best. And Julianne Moore is always coming to an award show with a lot of promise. Full Article

If you’ve been reading this blog consistently, you know I’ve been on this for a while: the January Jones style slide. January Jones used to bring it. She used to be AHEAD of it. Even if it what she wore wasn’t my favourite, at least it had imagination. At least it provoked. At least it wasn’t… seafoam. Full Article

Instant hate. Everything about this dress offends me. Brie Larson is going to win an Oscar. And she’s wearing a dress that’s meant for a Euro billionaire’s yacht girl in Cannes. Then there’s that colour. Maybe the worst colour in fashion. I mean you have to basically be an icon to be able to manage this colour. Full Article

I don’t know about this dress. In theory it’s a good idea. But it looks really cheap, doesn’t it look cheap? The ruffles look like they were ripped off a bridesmaid dress in the 80s. The material underneath that covers her body looks like the table cloth at a Chinese restaurant. I don’t think she’s feeling it either. Full Article

I suppose it should be no surprise that Kate Beckinsale, the ultimate over-dresser, wore this to Sundance. I’ve covered Sundance several times. Park City is not exactly a ballroom town during the festival. It’s cramped, it’s cold, it’s hard to walk anywhere. Which is why Kate wore pants. Full Article

You remember a couple of summers ago everyone was wearing these sheer long skirts? They were all peach coloured. Either green or peach. One of the reasons I hate peach. I feel like she’s too good for this colour.  Full Article

It’s that old Hollywood look. A shiny satin/sateen stress, in champagne or red or green, as seen here on Jessica Chastain, subtly falling off the shoulder showing a hint of skin, sensually but not scandalously. Never been my favourite. But when it’s done right, you can’t really object. Full Article
