As I say often, I’ll never pick a red dress. It’s just so...red. 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

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

I don't understand why it is that Carrie Underwood almost never gets it right with her red carpet looks but manages to do just fine for her performance outfits. How is this the same person? The red carpet dress is standard tacky. I'm guessing Zuhair Murad, because this is exactly the kind of cheesy fabric combination he's known for. Full Article

I should like this dress more than I do. It’s caped. Which is always one of my favourite features. But … there’s something about the  material here. Is it too… stiff? What’s bothering me is the placement of the darts around her breasts. I hate breast darts. Full Article
