The week in fashion

The Good

This week Anne Hathaway has been on a promotion tour for the new film Dark Knight Rises. With her Les Miserables hair and superhero body she hasn't put a fashion foot wrong. The actress is rumoured to be pregnant with her first baby which might explain the grecian draping - perfect for bump concealment. Here's her best red carpet moments.

The Bad

The red carpet has been a car crash of bad, bad long frocks this week. Too much volume, too much print, too many accessories...

Pixie Lott: This dress is patio 60's gone wrong. Terribly wrong. The halter neck is too wide, the pleats are too boxy, the blue too bridesmaid and the bow ... did she not get the memo?

Cheska Hull: This is a pretty dress ruined by an onslaught of bad accessories. She decided to wear a belt, a bag, an arm full of bracelets, a tribal necklace and a head band. Stick this on your fridge as a reminder to look in the mirror and take something off before you walk out the door.

Alyson Stoner: Someone in her management team wasn't very honest with Alyson. This print looks good on a couch not neck-to-floor on a human.

The Ugly

Wow. Pistachio three-piece shorts suit with matching satin ties. Now I've seen everything. Pretty woman. Bad, bad outfit day.

The Lovely

Marion Cotillard is just gorgeous. I could look at pictures of her in clothes all day long. This is my favourite look of the week -  gorgeous hounds-tooth pencil skirt, tweed bustier, metal belt and perfect red, satin, pointy pumps.

Modern Varga girl glam.

  • Anne Hathaway in the white frock? More than a foot wrong I reckon...more like a mile! There is nothing flattering about that frock at all, one of those terrible moments where fashion forgets style-what on earth is that peplum doing there? Horses for courses I guess. The Gucci is pretty though.

    • I've never actually seen a pale blue pistachio. Perhaps your colour blindness extends to your sense of balance, proportion and understanding of fashion. Borrowing looks from a variety of eras that suit your own sense of style is far more attractive than the boring, ill-fitted piece draped over Hathaway in the first image.

        • Have you ever checked out the Go Fug Yourself blog/site? The women who run it are hilarious.

      • Love that grecian frock on Anne Hathaway. Not too keen on the white one. Love the last pic too. Everything else you mention is pretty spot on to. Cheers

        • Cheska Hulls accessories look great it's the dress and bridesmaid hair that suck!

          • I don't even know who most of these people are.

            Cheska Hull's dress "pretty"? I think it's drab and ill-fitting. DOWN WITH BEIGE!

            • Cheska Hull's dress looks OK to me. The haircut and fingernails are unappealing. Alyson looks ok too. I don't see you problem there.

              The last one looks appalling. Belt too tight, ridiculous hips, the boob tube is never a good look, creepy shoes, clashing colours, nothing is right about this outfit.
