Darlings, we’re wrapping both a short week and a week where the worlds of celebrity and fashion typically take a bit of a breather. We don’t have a robust or vigorous collection of leftovers to offer this week. On the other hand, there aren’t really any disasters. An unseasoned chicken of fashion looks, if you will. And with that utterly tortured metaphor out of the way, let us begin judging.
So very much brown. We are drowning in brown.
Also over-browned, although we tend to think it works a little better with his coloring. The subtle shade of the shirt works nicely.
Busy Philipps in Preen
We’re starting to get a bit tired of the current trendy silhouette of emhanced shoulders and large puffy or bishop’s sleeves. The textile’s fun, but between the massive sleeves and goofy-ass hem, it just comes off as way too much dress.
Ditto our previous comments. Great textile, but we’re not loving the shape at all. Also, as cute as those shoes are, they don’t go with the dress. Not really.
Ellie Kemper in The Kooples
Serviceable, but that’s it.
Hilary Duff in Adriana Iglacias
This was definitely the week for bright bold florals. You won’t hear us complaining, but we do tend to think a much lighter hand was called for in the area of accessorizing. The boots and belts are overwhelming and fighting with the print.
Oof. Sweetie, if you were a flight attendant and this was December 1968 and your airline was unveiling their new holiday uniforms, we would be one hundred percent behind this look. Since none of those things are happening here, we regret to inform you it’s not working, dear.
Mindy Kaling in Valentino
We feel like we’re being really sour about this, but there have been a lot of questionable sleeves and shoulders this week. Something about that neckline/sleeve/bustline sitch is not working for us.
Similar to the criteria we laid out for Jane Krakowski, if this was your 6th birthday party, Naomi, we’d tell you what a pretty dress you’re wearing. It’s not, though.
This is fine, if a little dull. We have to admit, we started finding the lite Elton drag a little precious.
Tracee Ellis Ross in Max Mara
Nothing wrong with a sharp trench and a solid pair of pumps. That eye makeup, on the other hand…
Eleganza. It’s not reinventing the wheel, but it’s certainly working fine.
