I can call this colour amber, right? Whatever. That’s what my eyes are seeing – Amber Heard in an amber slinky negligee dress. You know what I recently figured out about this material? When the wind pushes up against it and you’re not wearing underwear, it gives you camel toe. Those are not the right shoes. Full Article

Intellectually, I get it. Kerry Washington goes unexpected and doesn’t always default to ‘sexy’. If Lainey were here, she’d say she loves that this dress isn’t traditionally sexy/alluring. But she’s rehearsing so here’s my unbridled opinion - This medium-long black dress is so matte that it looks like overdone officewear, chiffon accoutrements and all -  and I feel like the shoes don’t do anything to change that opinion. Full Article

Behold: Emma Stone's first red carpet misstep from the 2015 awards season. Emma's all-black look is decidedly unsexy. How can a sheer, half-lace floral black dress with cutouts (and pockets!) look so stiff? Of course, her hair looks great and her makeup is polished, but where's the fun? This mismatched ensemble is made even more boring with her basic black pumps. Full Article

I don’t know what it is about the bottom of this dress but I’m not digging the way it’s falling. Or where it’s falling. Is it hitting her legs at a weird place? Also, this hair, that fringe. Not feeling.  Full Article

That black jumpsuit on the carpet? Nothing is touching that. Obsessed. The red dress for the performance? You know, where she and Adam Levine had no chemistry, like Fifty Shades Of Grey? With that stupid nasty sh-t at the hip? PISS. It was piss.  Full Article

Hate the colour. Hate the cut. Hate the fact that she’s pretty much taking style inspiration from Sofia Vergara now. There is NOTHING interesting here. There’s no imagination, there’s no originality, there are only breasts. Purple breasts.    Full Article

Can’t decide if I’m into this. Definitely am not into the dusty rose colour. I like the 3 straps. But the one giant ruffle (can we call it a ruffle?) with the python print is what’s confusing me. It looks kinda …student designer?  Full Article
