Darlings, it’s not quite the most wonderful time of the year, but as we get into the weeds of fall, there’s always an uptick in the style efforts of celebrities. Well. Most of them, anyway. Okay, some of them. Anyway, the point is, these are all the folks who tried hard, but didn’t try hard enough. Come, let’s shame them together.
Angela Sarafyan in Rhea Costa
We’re in full-on ’80s Dynasty mode right now; a response to a tense and uncertain world, just as the OG was, with its turbans and shoulderpads and glitter in the face of nuclear armageddon. Our point: wear that Krystle realness, girl. It suits you and the color looks great.
She is a goddess and has earned the right to dress like a real estate agent at an industry convention if she wants to. We will genuflect and walk on by.
It’s okay. We don’t dislike anything he’s wearing, but the effect is just… okay. And as much as we love his sassy purple slippers, they really don’t go with that suit.
Oof. Lady, no. The combination of the ruffle, yoke, and kind of ugly textile make for a hideous dress.
He’s adorable and we love his style. We just don’t think he’s a beige kind of guy.
There’s a way to show up at these events and send the message that you are not interested in fashion or artifice. Then there’s the way where you go just a little too hard on the point and look a little like an asshole.
He’s gorgeous but dull as dishwater.
Lea Michele in David Koma
There’s the “Of course” gal of yore. We kind of missed her. Also, this is hideous.
Léa Seydoux in Louis Vuitton
It says something about how well this is working because we think she looks gorgeous but we loathe that color.
Paris Jackson in Moschino x H&M
She’s on-point and wearing the brand, so this disaster can’t truly be laid at her feet. Still, it’s pretty awful.
Patricia Clarkson in Pamella Roland
Her preference for mid-Century styles works better for her than we would’ve thought, but those strappies are awful.
Rosamund Pike in Dior
Blandly colored nightgown.
If we’re being harsh, the bolder plaids aren’t quite as hot as they were a couple of seasons back. Having said that, he looks utterly fantastic.
