Impact Style takes a look at this week’s best and worst celebrity fashion.
BEST DRESSED THIS WEEK
Kerry Washington shone at an event for her Scandal and The Limited Clothing Collection in Los Angeles. The actress perfectly paired black, white and red to create a striking yet sophisticated look. The polka dots on her Dolce and Gabbana dress make this outfit fun, whilst she tones everything down with white shoes with dotted heels. Kerry’s Roger Vivier clutch stole the show with its quirky print, and matches her perfect red pout.
Olivia looks flawless in a navy cape, black dress and thigh-high boots at the Kingsman: The Secret Service premier in New York City. Keeping it sleek and polished as usual, Olivia’s eye-catching navy Roger Vivier bag adds just the right amount of colour to this well-tailored outfit. Renowned for her ability to put together one-of-a-kind outfits, Olivia once again demonstrates her envious sense of style.
Thandie Newton stood out from the crowd for all the right reasons at The Slap premiere in New York City. The actress looked amazing in this floral co-ord, which she paired perfectly with white pointed heels. The lack of jewellery let the outfit do all the talking, whilst her curled mane added an element of fun to this energetic ensemble.
This rising starlet is quickly making a name for herself on the fashion scene. Once again she stole the spotlight at a Sports Illustrated event in New York City, sporting a white Zuhair Murad top and a Katharine Kidd pencil skirt. The interesting texture of the skirt is balanced by her simple yet elegant white top. Gigi’s blue and white heels give this monochrome outfit a good dose of colour. Her tousled locks give this look a laid-back yet edgy feel, perfect for an up and coming model.
Lauren Conrad looked picture perfect at the John Frieda Hair Care Beach Blonde event in a Lela Rose navy dress and nude Express heels. This previous Teen Vogue intern demonstrates her fashion know-how whilst working this girly dress and keeping it classic with the simple heels. Lauren’s beachy waves and natural make-up give this whole look a California girl vibe that we can’t help but envy.
WORST DRESSED OF THE WEEK
Once an iconic actress who exuded elegance, Uma’s most recent outfit is more mum’s-night-out than Hollywood mega-star. The oversized coat is frumpy and teamed with the roomy black jumpsuit makes for a match made in fashion hell. Her strappy shoes should never have left the wardrobe. Maybe a smile would have saved this outfit from the depths of fashion faux pas?
Three words; cheap and cheerful. This Cushnie et Ochs top and shorts ensemble may have cost a bomb, but it just looks messy and unsophisticated on Lily Alridge at the Sports Illustrated Swim City event in New York City. The silky finish of the shorts contrasts with the matte finish of the top and the strappy heels should have been replaced with more polished footwear.
At the Berlin International Film Festival premiere of Queen of the Desert, Nicole’s normally fashion forward ensemble was nowhere to be seen. Instead, the actress appeared in a Victorian-esque white Valentino Haute Couture gown, adorned with white bobbles and questionable ruffled arms that resembled a night gown rather than Nicole’s usual red carpet picks, but at least her sleek hair and elegant make-up saved her from complete fashion failure.
Dianna Agron’s choice of attire was a questionable ensemble at Louis Vuitton’s Series 2 Collection cocktail event in Los Angeles. Whilst mixing patterns can look stylish and unexpected, there’s a way to do it, and this just isn’t it. The wild patterns on the top, the skirt, and the handbag clash and the strappy heels just add to the mounding mess. This outfit screams chaos and should never have made it this far out of the house.
Although the colour of Anne Hathaway’s bright pink Solace London dress is vibrant and exciting, the shape and fitting of the dress lets down the entire look, and I can’t help but picture the resemblance to someone who has just stepped out of the shower and wrapped a towel around herself. Perhaps a more fitted piece would have worked better. Anne’s choice of shoes, however, deserves some merit, but her short do just doesn’t work with the strapless dress.
