Julianna Margulies, as always, has her shit together.

What’s great about Julianna from a style perspective is that she’s incredibly consistent. She knows her looks and she knows her look. She always has. It also means there’s not a ton of variations to her look. She’s been sporting a classically chic NYC style (which occasionally borders on mature, but not in a bad way) for years now, right down to the slicked back center part that’s practically her trademark now. From a bitchy fashion blogger perspective, that’s easy to complain about. Cue: “We’re so bored. She looks like this all the time.” But so what? Style isn’t about change; that’s fashion’s job. Style is about knowing yourself, knowing the image you want to project, and finding the look that suits you the best for your goals. We’ve always respected her for being pretty firm on those questions right from the beginning of her career in the public eye. There are very few fashion disasters in her red carpet history.
As for this look, we absolutely love the skirt. The top makes sense in a played-down, keep-the-focus-on-the-skirt sense. The basic black pumps also serve this function. In fact, she’s pretty much following the style dictate that one piece should be the focus of your look and all the other pieces should serve it. Nothing fights that skirt, not even her hair. The gal knows exactly what she’s doing. You could learn by watching her.

IN! Chic and classic! Eat shit, Gaga!
OUT! Boring and old lady!
Yesterday’s Minion Opinions were as follows:
Vanessa Hudgens’ extremely unfortunate oxymoron known as a “Candie’s couture gown” got a near-unanimous OUT.
Sarah Jessica Parker’s “Princess Anastasia with cat feet” look was widely debated, and although many claimed she was dressing with a sense of humor, many others said they didn’t get the joke. Result: OUT.
