IN or OUT: Kelly Osbourne in Zimmermann

Posted on October 31, 2012

Darlings, Kelly O won some sort of Ultimate Style Icon award at this Cosmo-sponsored “Ultimate Women Awards” thingy. Hmmph. We’ll just see about THAT.


Kelly Osbourne attends the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Woman of the Year awards in London, England in a Zimmermann dress from the Spring 2013 collection paired with Casadei shoes.

See, this is why we remain relatively unimpressed with her so-called style cred. It’s true that she’s improved tremendously in the past ten years, but that’s true of a lot of people as they move through their twenties. Nothing particularly award-worthy about that. And too often, as in this case, we think she makes some choices that make us question her instincts. It’s a pretty dress, for the most part. We think there’s a bit too much design going on, but we like the look overall. But the fit in the bust and bodice doesn’t look all that great and the fact that she paired those platform peeptoes with it just cause us to throw our hands up in annoyance. They’re not bad shoes, but at best, they’re an expected choice. We see no style in that choice of shoe. There were so many different kinds of shoes to choose from to punctuate this outfit and she chose the one kind of shoe seen most often on the red carpet, rendered in tones to match the dress exactly. Also, her nails match her hair color; her hairstyle is all wrong for the dress; and she did nothing interesting with the jewelry.

Pfft. Style icon, our perky gay asses. She dresses well, for the most part, but she never really impressed us with her so-called style.


Vote Now!




OUT! Oh, please. If she’s a style icon, I’m a princess.

Kerry Washington’s postage stamp dress did not thrill the Bitter Kittens, who voted it OUT.
