The Worst Dressed
Now, for some eye candy. (As Todd Chrisley says: Class not Ass!)
The Best Dressed List
Helen of Troy, aka Diane Kruger – Emilia Wickstead. Classic lines, love the neckline.
Emma Stone – Lanvin. Trendsetting: Vogue immediately featured pantsuits for evening affairs on the website.
The Queen, aka Helen Mirren – Dolce & Gabbana. And a pin with a pen in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo. When I'm her age, I'd like my neck to look like that.
Naomi Watts – Gucci and a Bulgari Serpenti necklace. Yellow and white were the big colors on the Red Carpet, this one one of my favorite. Sothebys immediately Instagrammed that they have a Serpenti coming up for auction in February.
Reese Witherspoon – Calvin Klein. Once again, classic. But then it's Calvin Klein. Perfect proportions for her. And I love the bare neckline.
Salma Hayek – Alexander McQueen. Salma Hayek is Salma Hayek, when did she not look good? Again, bare neckline.
Emily Blunt – Michael Kors. With turquoise accessories. Another white dress done perfect.
I'm sure Miranda Priesley would give a slight nod of approval.
Christine Baranski – now this is how you do a Zac Posen!
And the Top Best Dressed award goes to:
Mr. and Mrs. Clooney. For the record, she wore Christian Dior, the much-debated gloves where her own (as in she made them herself that morning, they're kid leather by the way), Harry Winston diamonds. Both were wearing Je Suis Charlie buttons, I would expect no less from them. I personally love the gloves, and the white clutch that went with them. You can put her in a paper bag and she will look stunning, with such intelligence shining in her eyes. George is a very lucky man.
Trends of notice: statement necklaces are over, unless it is a Serpenti. Less is more. Rectangular clutch is the it bag (and it will hold your phone, finally), and if you feel like wearing pants to an event, go for it.
