Well Spun: Alek Wek


I’ll admit, when she stands still, this dress is underwhelming.

It’s a cute pattern — I enjoy that it almost looks three-dimensional — but the cut is a little maternity, almost, and the heavy stockings and shoes weigh it down.

But then she walks:

Fine or Feh: Emma Watson at the Britannia Awards, with Bonus Judi Dench


First of all, I swear she’s worn this before, but I think I’m wrong. It only feels like she’s worn this before, because she wear stuff like this often (indeed, her archives are chockablock with black and white, and also pants). Let’s start off with the good:

BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards Presented By BBC America And United Airlines - Arrivals

She’s often so serious looking on the red carpet, it felt nice to start off with a smile, and with DAME JUDI DENCH, no less. Here’s the whole look, though:

amfUG: Natasha Bedingfield at the amfAR Inspiration LA Gala


Poor Natasha Bedingfield. I’m sure she’s still paying her mortgage with residuals from her song being the theme to The Hills, but Ellie Goulding seems to have stepped up as the new British Bleached-Blonde Purveyor Of Dance Music With Bad Taste In Clothes. That must be hard.

Not that Natasha has given up trying. This effort is, in fact, strenuous and admirable. It’s flagrantly fugtacular, it’s serving up twin pancakes, it’s boxy, it’s got netting… it’s everything you’d want in picking a dress to remind people whose Throne of Ignominy it was FIRST.

Who Fugged It More at amfAR: January Jones in Tom Ford vs. Lea Michele in Versace


These two seem to have been the only ones who went with Nude And Shiny at the amfAR Gala, and I love a mighty duel, so why not pit them against each other? I trust everyone is holding their swords in their dominant hands, ladies. Let’s make it a fair fight.

Lea Michele in Versace

Lea’s Versace is about as basic as it comes. And if it had continued as it began, we might be throwing her in with the lightbox dump and saying, “Sure, why not,” because it would be slinky and pretty if not a world-enflamer. But that dumpy milky-tea-colored fabric at the bottom is like an admission of defeat. By someone. SOMEBODY stopped caring. Brown paper bags are for malt liquor, not legs.

January, at least, has nothing in common with Colt 45:

Fug or Fab: Anne Hathaway in Wes Gordon


People StyleWatch theorized that Anne is doing a “night sky” theme for all of these premieres,  and I like that theory. Shall we discuss whether this one works in practice, or what?
