Paired with a simpler ensemble, these red leather shorts Padma Lakshmi wore for a night out in West Hollywood would have been a badass statement piece. But when you add in a bright yellow purse, tights, chunky necklace, and fur-lined jacket, suddenly the shorts are just one statement piece in a sea of statement pieces. This outfit is kind of like a dish with too many competing flavors. Right, Padma? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Happy Holidays! It’s that time of year when celebrities and various members of the 1 percent flock to Aspen to ski and strut around in ridiculous designer snow outfits. Obviously, Paris Hilton and her boyfriend River Viiperi were not going to miss out on the fun. River, who looks even younger than his actual age of 21, opted for a light jacket and sneakers, while Paris went for frothy white fur and moon boots, because of course she did. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
God love Drew Barrymore. She takes this method acting thing for serious. Here she is, preparing for a role in what we can only imagine will be a rollicking expose on the hard-living, hard-drinking rock bands of the ’80s. At least, that’s what we’re hoping, because that’s the only logical explanation for this trainwreck of an outfit. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
I really love Demi Lovato. I think she’s super cute, and her music is all right, and she’s by far the nicest and most composed judge on “X-Factor” (and she does an admirable job of making it seem like her co-judge Britney Spears is actually a humanoid). But I just can’t cosign on this aggressively “Golden Girls”-esque ensemble. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Free associations I’m having while contemplating the Versace dress Jessica Biel wore to the “Playing For Keeps” premiere:
- Scissor attack.
- Intergalactic space queen.
- Real Housewives of the planet Zothar.
- Wrestler belt.

I just don’t get it, SJP. Aren’t you supposed to be, like, a fashion thing? I’m cool with the dress, even though it looks kind of like a Thanksgiving tablecloth, but paired with snakeskin pumps in Lisa Frank’s favorite colors and a blue velvet purse, I can’t help but feel like even Carrie Bradshaw would get all judgy on this one. This isn’t a look, it’s just like, items.
I’m usually right on board with Katie Holmes‘s classy, pared-down aesthetic, echoed in her line Holmes & Yang, so I cannot fathom why this crazy-busy dress would ever make it into her repertoire ― and with opaque tights and a bizarrely out of place clutch, no less. From the embellished bib to the awkward belt to the unflattering length and sack silhouette in a godawful print, this look is wrong in so very many ways. That said, her hair and makeup are flawless. What gives, Katie? I can’t believe Suri let you out of the house like this.
Russell Brand attended a yoga class with his mom over the weekend, and he wore, well, exactly what you might expect Russell Brand to wear to a yoga class: slouchy white T-shirt, transparent white harem pants tucked into waffle-knit legwarmers, flip-flops, and an eclectic selection of jewelry. As much as I admire him for bringing his signature rockstar Jesus style to the yoga studio, I feel bad for whoever was positioned behind him during downward dog. Those pants are miiiiighty see-through. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
I’ve had a new appreciation for Ke$ha ever since I heard the hauntingly (and disconcertingly) beautiful acoustic version of her latest party song, “Die Young,” but a part of me is relieved to see she hasn’t strayed too far from her crazy, clashing fashion roots. Shower in glitter, sleep in your car, and wear all the prints at once, but never change, Ke$ha, never change. [Photo: Splash News]
I inexplicably fall more in love with Kristen Stewart with each passing day (I know, I know, I’m still coming to terms with it myself), but that still doesn’t mean I want to look at her bellybutton. Maybe it’s her surprisingly deft post-scandal rebound or the end of the “Twilight” series, but between her nude (like, actually nude) gown and this bellbottom jumpsuit mess (also courtesy of Zuhair Muhad), Kristen is all like, “LOOK AT MY BODY, BITCHES.” I think the baroque black lace is incredibly beautiful (though, yes, a bit “Twilight” On Ice), but it all goes downhill from, um, there down. This whole look is kind of appalling, but with that said, Kristen is young, beautiful, and all willowy-limbed and stuff, so I am going to let the girl have her transparent bodysuits without criticism. For the most part.
