Friday Leftovers for the Week of August 26th, 2018

Posted on August 31, 2018

Kittens, it’s been kind of a crazy week on the blogging front but also (not coincidentally) a bit of a three-ring circus in the world of red carpetry. After a red carpet dry spell that tried our patience, the clouds have opened up and a deluge of attention-seeking fashion landed in our laps – more than we could handle, for the first time in months. Join us, won’t you? As we clean up this mess and clear out our weekly files by judging the hell out of these fair-to-middling efforts.


Alexander Skarsgård


Angela Bassett

Shiny, wrinkly and oversized. Miss Angela, you deserve so much better than this. Although duty compels us to point out that she kinda has a history of highly questionable jumpsuits.



Danielle Brooks

Church clothes, but pretty church clothes.

Dave Bautista

While we’re glad he no longer wears little tiny vests and newsboy caps on the RC (too precious), this is a little dull.

Gabrielle Union in Abodi

Pretty fabulous, we have to admit. Gorgeous color.



Hannah Gross in Prada

We’ll give her credit for doing the best kind of styling that hideous shirt requires, but it’s still a hideous shirt. And the bag simply clashes.



Hilary Duff in Alice + Olivia

A really cute dress that doesn’t hide her baby bump, but doesn’t make it center stage either, if you know what we mean. It fits her just right. Not at all in love with the shoe color. We don’t care how trendy it is, it doesn’t go with the dress.

Jeff Goldblum in Prada

Who is he talking to? He’s always photographed mid-sentence. We figure he’s regaling the photographers with tales of his Jeff Goldblumness.

He looks great, but the black boots aren’t quite right.

Jennifer Morrison

Newp. Bad color, cheap-looking garments.

Kristin Chenoweth

Who cares what she’s doing? The point is that she’s Kristi Dawn and this is how it goes with her. A bathing suit, heels and a beach ball on the sidewalk? If it gets you to pay attention to Kristi Dawn, so be it.



Madison Beer in Faith Connexion

It starts off so generic and gets more exciting as you scroll down. Not necessarily more stylish, but at least she’s got the element of surprise going for her.



Meghan Trainor


Paz Vega in Ulyana Sergeenko

Surprisingly pretty, considering the tough color combo, slighty mumsy-ness and unresolved sleeves.

Are we good at backhanded compliments or what?



Shannon Purser

The skirt is pretty, but the design of the bodice is terribly unflattering. And the color does nothing for her.



Shawn Mendes

He’s cute, but so boring in his style. It all feels so tightly controlled.



Sonequa Martin-Green in Narces

We love her, but this is tacky as hell. The earrings and the white-backed dotted swiss are what really push it past redeemable.

Tyra Banks

She’s really been re-embracing her inner Barbie lately. We approve. This is seriously fun and appropriately ridiculous.



Vanessa Hudgens in Galia Lahav

It’s fine enough. We certainly wouldn’t ding anyone for wearing sequins to a Michael Jackson tribute. The combo of turtleneck and short-shorts is a bit tough to get past, but if we look at it like a dancer’s costume, it sort of works. Of course, she wasn’t there to do a dance routine so far as we know, but we’re feeling kindhearted at the moment.
