Love It Or Leave It: Halle Berry’s Bump-Worthy Black Gown

It isn't fair about Halle Berry. So pretty, so talented, so fertile. Sigh. In any case, good for her and congrats to her and Oliver on their impending "surprise" babe. That said, I'm having less than good feelings about the gown she wore to the Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, premiere of her film "The Call." The…

Love It Or Leave It: Eva Mendes’ Animal Print Jumpsuit

I recently held a private induction ceremony in my mind for Eva Mendes to join the exclusive club of Celebrites Who Can Do No Fashion Wrong (other members include Diane Kruger and Jessica Alba). I mean, look at this outfit. I've been dreaming about that pink coat and glamorous hair flip for weeks now. But…

Love It Or Leave It: Drew Barrymore’s Perky Floral Pants

I know printed pants are not super popular 'round these parts, because a while back I did a post about styling printed denim, and the overwhelming response on Facebook and Twitter was "WHY DOES THIS EXIST?" So I'm going to go out on a limb and admit it: I really like these floral pants Drew…

Love It Or Leave It: Blake Lively’s PVC Boob Cover?

Whenever I see Blake Lively I feel compelled to wail, "Blaaaaaaake!," Amy Winehouse style (God rest her soul). Sadly, this Blake ain't no Fielder-Civil, but I suppose she'll do. The "Savages" actress (what a terrible, terrible movie) has maintained a curiously low profile since she wed Ryan Reynolds back in September, but she showed u…

Love It Or Leave It: Selena Gomez’s (Affordable!) Boho Look?

In case you haven't already noticed, I am totally on Team Selena. I kind of like the girl — she's genuinely talented and actually seems refreshingly down-to-earth. Of course, that could all be an act, but who knows? I also think she (or her stylist, for that matter) happens to have great taste: the "Spring

Love It Or Leave It: Emma Stone’s Billowy Bat Wings?

If one strategically overlooks the critical donut hair situation as I have chosen to do, Emma Stone looks lovely. Fresh, glowing skin, flattering LBD, simple black pumps, a rad fluoro pink lip that says "Spring is coming!" 10 times better than any groundhog ever could — all very nice. However. Is there anything more distracting…

Love it Or Leave It: Jennifer Lawrence Goes A Little “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?”

Jennifer Lawrence was spotted at Heathrow Airport yesterday, in an very incognito trench coat, brimmed hat and sunglasses. Maybe she's doing promotion for "Silver Linings Playbook," but I prefer to think she's in London for a secret rendezvous with zombie ex-boyfriend (and native Brit) Nicholas Hoult. Normally, I would be super annoyed with another lady…

Love It Or Leave It: Cate Blanchett’s Glossy Red Gown?

I hate to hate anything even remotely associated with the goddess Cate Blanchett, but this shiny, stiff-looking Armani Privé dress is testing the limits of her sartorial perfection. It's like what an off-duty superhero would wear to a red carpet event, all latex-y and, like, "Hey, I may or may not be fighting crime and…

Love It Or Leave It: Kate Bosworth’s Sixties Throwback?

Kate Bosworth showed up at Sundance to promote her starring role in the new film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's autobiographical novel Big Sur, directed by her fiancé Michael Polish. They certainly chose an odd time to release a Kerouac movie, what with that other one coming out and all. I'm curious to see if Polish'…

Love It Or Leave It: Drew Barrymore’s Maxi Skirt Moment

Hippie mama Drew Barrymore appeared on "Good Morning America" in this flowy bohemian outfit to promote her new makeup line, "Flower" (which Jessica is already obsessed with--stay tuned for a Beauty Test Drive!). I really like the pleated skirt paired with ankle boots, but that top is way too shapeless for my taste. What do you…

Love It Or Leave It: Maria Menounos’ Miami Vice Moment

Maria Menounos, breathtakingly gorgeous even while bearing a slight resemblance to Julia Allison, wore this mint green blazer to conduct some "Extra" interviews earlier this week. I really love the color, but in the form of a blazer, it's tough not to evoke Don Johnson vibes, and it's definitely more of a summer look in general. What…

Love It Or Leave It: Jenna Elfman’s Crazy Coat

Okay, so clearly the show "1600 Penn" looks terrible. Which is weird, because both Bill Pullman and Jenna Elfman are not actualy terrible themselves. And yet the premise of a hokey, silly family in the White House seems just so totally off kilter with the current socio-political reality. But in any case, what are we…

Love It Or Leave It: Kerry Washington’s Checkered Cream Dress?

Have you guys seen "Django Unchained"? I'm kind of embarrassed that I haven't yet, but it just requires, like, so much effort to actually plan it and go to the movie theatre, and spending $15 just to sit down and watch something always makes me feel weirdly cheated. I'm the type of person that will…

Love It Or Leave It: Kathy Griffin’s Many Hues

Maybe it's because in high school I had a pair of mustard yellow tights and every time I wore them my dad would point and yell, "JAUNDICE!," but I always feel a bit hesitant about yellow and orange hosiery. Really, that's the only thing keeping me from giving Kathy Griffin an enthusiastic "Well Played" for…

Love It Or Leave It: Is This New Prada Campaign All Flower Power Or Failure?

There was a time in the early '90s when sunflowers were totally ubiquitous. I'm pretty sure TV's "Blossom" had a terrible sunflower hat, and sunflowers were the '90s symbol for some kind of whitewashed take on '60s bohemianism. So perhaps that's why I'm not super into the new ads from Prada, featuring supermodels Amber Valletta…

Love It Or Leave It: Naomi Watts’s Stella McCartney Dress?

This Stella McCartney dress is so typical of the designer in that at first glance it's totally fine, even good, but upon further inspection something is just off. And once you see it there's no turning back. For me, it's the proportions — the fitted suit-like top becomes a big, tulip-shaped (faux leather) balloon skirt…

Love It Or Leave It: A Hello Kitty Dress From Hell

Listen, I know, sometimes we just want to be cute. Cute is fine, but in my estimation, this dress goes over the cliff from cute to infantilizing. This "Kawaii Not?" dress from Modcloth puts a Hello Kitty face on your boobs, and just seems like an adult-man repeller. But what do you think? [poll id="4672"]…

Love It Or Leave It: Anne Hathaway’s Avant-Garde “Les Miserables” Premiere Look?

Anne Hathaway certainly isn't the first celeb to shed her sartorial inhibitions with her long hair (see: the Miley Cyrus metamorphosis), but she has proven herself to be far and away one of the most daring. If last week's love-it-or-loathe-it Givenchy gown wasn't proof enough for you, this elaborate Tom Ford look should do the…

Love It Or Leave It: Beyonce’s Floral Faux Romper

Beyonce took a trip to an art show at Art Basel in Miami this weekend with her hair tied up in a chic top knot, wearing a sexy pair of beige Louboutins and a floral romper. But wait! Stop the presses! Turns out that's not a floral romper after all, but a matchy-matchy short and shirt…

Love It Or Leave It: Kourtney Kardashian’s Miami Muu Muu

Of all the Kardashians (and there are like, 5,000), Kourtney seems to have the best style. But this Mara Hoffman muu muu? Well, the jury's out. She tends to have good taste, but then again, she did have two kids with Human Tan Towel Scott Disick. So should we trust her muu muu judgement? Hmmm...
