Kate Middleton isn’t exactly my fashion hero, given her somewhat mundane personal style selections (don’t hit me!), but I must confess that even I, a jaded fashion freak, am occasionally charmed by some of her more impressive choices. My favorite thus far of her sartorial standouts has been the Grecian-style lavender Alexander McQueen gown she wore in July to the Hollywood BAFTA dinner, but I’ll admit I’m equally dazzled by this week’s stunning floor-length split-to-the-thigh Roland Mouret. I know she’s married to the prince and all (I mean, duh), but Kate is a young, fresh-faced woman who shouldn’t feel confined to matronly wear. In particular, I like to see some glamour from her. This gown is the perfect synthesis of proper (the length, the long sleeves, the high neckline) and punchy (the off-center zipper in the back, the daring exposure of leg, and especially those shimmering Jimmy Choos). To this I say, Kate may in fact be wholly worthy of her iconic reputation. [photos via People Style Watch]

Before any of you freak out, please know we have a deep and unabiding love for Mr. Johnny Depp. He’s amazing. He’s friggin’ adorable. And he will always be our number 1 (or 3) crush ever since he starred in the original “21 Jump Street.” But the man is clearly uncomfortable with being People’s Sexiest Man Alive because he mostly dresses like a country hobo just down to the city for a spoon jamboree. This has not in any way lessened our affections for him — nothing really could, not even the horrible “Rum Diaries.” — but take a gander at his sartorial history and tell me he’s not totally effing with us.

“Well, we don’t have as many werepanthers on SVU, [but] I smack around [Alexander] Skaarsgard and [Bill] Moyer. I f*ck someone else up, and I have a girlfriend, so that’s fun. It’s been very freeing, except for the fact that I get off the show where I had to wear a coat and tie every day and they put me in a suit and tie every day.”
