Darlings, because of awards season and Fashion Week colliding in front of our eyes this week, there’s a higher than usual number of eye-popping looks in this week’s rundown. In fact, if we had to suggest a theme for this lot, we’d say it was FASHION VICTIMS. Brace yourself for a lot of attention-seeking.
America Ferrera in J. Mendel
We imagine she was going for some Galadriel-like fantasy vibe here, but the shape is pretty mumsy and the cape isn’t exactly helping matters. Plus the colors and seaming make it look like bathroom tile.
Angela Bassett in Leilou
We are completely over the panty-baring skirt, but she gets a special dispensation because, well. Just look at her.
Cynthia Erivo in Erdem
Newp. Sorry. This all too silly. We don’t like the textile at all but pairing it with match platforms and a ridiculous bow did nothing but make it more ridiculous. We love her cray style but this is too clowny.
Diane Kruger in Givenchy Couture
Kate Walsh in Camilla & Marc
This looks like the start of a drag queen’s Christmas-themed costume. Like there’s an accompanying giant red wig with snowflakes attached to it or something. We can’t say we love the combo of green and sparkle here, but it’s the shape that takes it somewhere past the point of workable. It’s just all too much – and we don’t think it suits her at all.
Mary J. Blige in Ralph & Russo
It’s just alright. The color and the fact that Mary J. is working it gives it all the impact it has, but the dress itself is pretty generic.
This almost works, but that fur – real or not – is overused/overdone and the pink dye doesn’t help matters.
Girl, that is NOT your dress. The good news for you is, it’s nobody else’s dress either. Burn it.
This is all just a bit too goofy for us, but at least it’s unique. We think we’d like the pants more without the fluffy jacket.
Natalia Dyer in Oscar de la Renta
The colors look fantastic on her, but those sandals look silly with such a heavy coat.
Shine on, you crazy diamond.
Regina King in Giorgio Armani
It feels very Michelle Obama circa 2010, which isn’t a terrible thing but we don’t love the waist detail and the bodice looks too sporty.
This looks like one of those half-assed school play costumes where you can’t actually tell from looking at it who or what the kid is portraying. A bird? A tooth? A small fluffy animal? Help us out here, Rita.
Salma Hayek in Gucci
We’ve tried to be more open about ladybows but a pink satin one at the waist of any lady over five or six years old gets a big NO from us.
We don’t love the print and the shoes are an abomination, but her hair and makeup are on point for the dress and she looks better than the sum of the look’s parts.
Yalitza Aparicio in Kris Goyri
The shape is nice, but the textiles come off a little chintzy and we don’t like the way the skirt and bodice meet. Feels a bit unresolved in the design.
