Friday Leftovers for the Week of October 15th, 2017 – Part One

Posted on October 20, 2017

You guys, once again we are faced with an overflowing cup of mediocre celebrities whose promotional efforts and style choices have gone un-judged by us. Brace yourself for blandness as we launch into the kind of fatuous, shallow, rapid-fire opinion-spewing that made you all love us so fervently. Presumably.

Pour yourself a big cup of judgment and join in, darlings.

 

Abbie Cornish in Alberta Ferretti

Gorgeous print and colors, but the various weights of fabric make for a dress that feels somewhat unbalanced visually. That may just be an issue in photographs, though.

 

 

Adam Lambert

Well, the pants are for a good cause, which is really the only reason why we’re not trashing them. He’s got such a specific look, but it’s almost never reflected well in his style choices.

 

 

Anya Taylor-Joy in Dolce&Gabbana

Nothing wrong with that. We almost never say this about any gal, but she really does look more striking as a blonde.

 

 

Camilla Belle in Carolina Herrera

Kind of hate the transition from bust, to flowers, to sheer yoke. The dress is fairly simple otherwise. The bodice over-complicates things. And we don’t much like the colors. Or the shoes.

Go home, Camilla. You’re no Liz.

 

 

Catherine Zeta Jones in Zuhair Murad

Meh. Not remotely fresh, dear.

 

 

Cobie Smulders

The dress is dreary but it could be helped with the right pair of shoes. This is the exact opposite of “the right pair.”

 

 

Courtney Love

She had a good week on the image front, since footage surfaced of her warning starlets away from Harvey Weinstein back in 2005. This isn’t a great look by any means, but we’ll lay off. Take a moral victory lap, woman.

 

 

Dakota Fanning in Dolce&Gabbana

It’s fine until we scroll all the way down. The hem’s too low and the sandals are too naked for such a visually heavy dress.

 

Emilie De Ravin

Also kind of blandly generic.

 

 

Gabrielle Union in Michael Kors Collection

Love the jacket, not convinced on the pants, hate the shoes. Would this be improved with boots? Pumps? We’re asking. A sandal doesn’t seem right.

 

 

Gerard Butler

Don’t look so impressed with yourself, dude. This is pure Men’s Wearhouse.

 

 

Hayley Atwell in Suzanne Neville

BEWBS

Even these two queens have to admit there’s not much else to discuss. Congrats, girl. They’re spectacular.

 

 

Laura Bailey in Erdem

We would hate this on nine out of ten wearers, but she’s that tenth, for some reason. The black accents really take it somewhere. On the other hand, and somewhat less charitably, this comes off like Nicole Kidman cosplay.

 

 

Mary-Louise Parker

This is a bad look, Mary-Louise.

 

 

Vanessa Williams

It’s got a fun, Auntie Mame sort of vibe, but that coat is a little oddly shaped.

 

More to come in Part 2, dolls!
