Carpets & Candids: Ruth Wilson’s weird shoes

I don’t think the fit is great with this look on Ruth Wilson and it’s because the outfit can’t make up its mind. That top needs to be tighter. I rarely recommend a tighter top but if it has to be that top, with that material, in that colour, tucked into a long skirt, it has to be more snug. Full Article

I don’t understand this outfit.  The jacket is beautiful. The jacket over the white lace top and pants outfit is meant to be an entire look. None of it makes sense. A lace top and matching pants, for me personally, never makes sense. But that’s because I’m not super into lace, and certainly not in such large amounts. Full Article

Carpets & Candids: Mila’s red boots

Red boots like this, to me, always feel costumey. Maybe because it’s Halloween. Maybe because there are so many superhero movies. But any goodwill I’ve ever had – probably not much – for an over-the-knee red boot is now gone. That said, the red boot can obviously be styled so that it stays as far away from Halloween and superheroes as possible. Full Article

As I say often, I’ll never pick a red dress. It’s just Maggie Gyllenhaal, however, has and can make a red dress work. This one though. Not the shine. It’s the fabric. So that’s two strikes on top of each other: red and satin. To me the satin rarely photographs well, rarely shoots luxuriously. Full Article

Earlier this week, Lucy Liu stepped out in a grey dress. The colour is beautiful on her. The problem is not the colour. The problem is all that… fuzz. Four layer of fuzz – one across the chest, and three tiers of it in the skirt. And on top of all that, a busy bow that ties at the back. Full Article

Years ago it was always a mystery, some of the things Amanda Peet would wear. And lately, maybe in the last couple of years, her style has changed – it’s great. So I feel like last night at the CFDAs was a flashback to before. This is not a great dress. It’s the poor cousin to Zendaya’s glorious MET Gala Beauty & The Beast dress... Full Article

This is not an easy colour. In certain situations, it’s actually a super corny colour. Corny. Or tacky. The way Hailee Steinfeld’s wearing it here? I’m gonna say it’s a corny-tacky combination. Mall at the prom. What you’d like to be forgiven for the first time you’re on a carpet. Full Article

Carpets & Candids: Blake’s over-fringe

Marchesa. And it’s such a Marchesa dress. The signature feature of Marchesa: too much. Marchesa, the label, doesn’t know the meaning of enough. Which is why there is so much of everything here, on top of everything, and fringe. All that fringe on the sleeve, around the waist, at the hem… and it’s not just fringe, it’s over-fringe on top of lace AND sheer. Full Article

I was about to say that this is the cutest outfit I’ve seen on Katherine Heigl in a long time, maybe forever? The pretty floral dress under a moto jacket….good, right? I mean I would have gone with a different shoe but it’s not a dealbreaker. Then I zoomed out and saw the bag. Full Article
