Impact Style takes a look at the best and worst celebrity fashion had to offer this week.
THIS WEEK’S BEST DRESSED CELEBRITY: JOURDAN DUNN
Model Jourdan Dunn takes our pick for the best dressed celebrity this week, wearing a a complex, black cut-out creation by Zuhair Murad to the GQ Men of the Year Awards last Tuesday. She lets the dress do the talking; keeping her hair and smoky-eye makeup simple whilst also leaving out any accessories. Jourdan steers clear of the dreaded line separating the risque from the raunchy, and scores serious style points with this outfit.
Another success on the red carpet at the GQ Men of the Year awards Nicole Scherzinger, who wore a ruched, blush-pink Ermanno Scervino gown, accessorized by a heavy dose of diamonds. Though she decidedly stuck to a more classic vibe in her outfit choice, both Jourdan and Nicole keep their hair casual with loose waves and everyone’s go-to smokey eye makeup look. Very different, but equally as beautiful.
Cara Delevingne wows in a gorgeous green gown at the premiere of her latest film, The Face of an Angel, at the Toronto Film Festival this week. The skin-tight striped dress features all shades of green, setting off Cara’s sun-kissed skin and golden curls. Cara finishes off her look with a metallic belt, accentuating her outrageously tiny waist, subtle gold jewellery and a red pout; Cara gives us her take on the blonde bombshell look, and we definitely approve.
Megan Fox is a tangerine dream in this orange and white cut-out dress at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premiere in Sydney. Megan pulls her hair back in a smooth side plait, keeping her natural-looking makeup and accessories to a minimum. The bright colours not only scream summer (yes, it’s not over!) but compliment Megan’s bronzed skin beautifully. Polished to perfection, Megan sizzles in Sydney this week.
First she was the cookie-cutter pop princess of High School Musical, then she was the boho-chic girl about town in LA, and now Vanessa Hudgens goes for a more grunge-glam look in her latest ensemble. Wearing a plunging V-Neck leopard print mini, an oversized leather jacket, a black-and-gold choker and strappy black sandals, Vanessa showcases her chameleon-like ways by rocking yet another completely different style. Paired with a slicked down bob and deep-red lips, we’re seriously liking the vampy new Vanessa we see.
THIS WEEK’S WORST DRESSED CELEBRITY: LADY GAGA
Lady Gaga looks well beyond her years in yet another odd red carpet ensemble at the Harper’s Bazaar Icon’s Party, where she is seen wearing a suit-inspired black ‘dress’ (though perhaps more of a leotard), a sheer black skirt, fishnet tights, black boots and a huge diamond necklace. The peroxide bob, bright red lips, plunging v-neck and thigh-slit are just way too much for the singer, and don’t really send the right message. Sorry Gaga, but we’re not with you on this one.
Actress Lena Dunham is well known for her ‘interesting’ style choices, and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint. She might be on our worst dressed list this week, but kudos to her for always coming up with a noteworthy outfit. We like the retro checkered over-sized blazer but the sack-like dress underneath it does her absolutely no favours. Top that off with a rather limp-looking bow and some seriously weird platforms and we can’t help but feel that this outfit should have stayed in the dress-up box.
Also in attendance at the GQ Men of the Year Awards was Lindsay Lohan, however sadly her outfit choice didn’t go down as well as some of the others. Lindsay straddles the red carpet in sparkly zebra-print Balmain gown, confidently thrusting her leg out of it’s thigh slit. Sorry Lindsay, but you should have learnt by now that that pose RARELY works (Angelina Jolie Oscars 2012 anyone?) and that disco-ball dress certainly doesn’t either.
Contrary to popular belief, models don’t always look great on the red carpet, and unfortunately we have to turn to Victoria Secret Angel Candice Swanpoel as evidence of this. The model, who attended the Harper’s Bazaar Icons Party, decided to go for a nightdress-esque blue satin gown, which she bizarrely paired with a brown leather belt that wouldn’t look out of wrapped around a cowboy. Not only are the two items entirely mismatched, but the dress itself definitely needed a good ol’ iron.
Diane Kruger makes a rare red-carpet blunder in her outfit choice this week, wearing a peach Prada gown and purple clutch for the IFA Opening Gala in Berlin. Though it isn’t the worst we’ve seen, the colour of the dress completely washes out Diane’s already fair complexion and appears boxy and shapeless on her slim frame. Topping that off with a Quality-Street looking clutch, Diane sadly fails to impress this week.
