Weekend Fashion Review

Ok - so...

You may or may not have figured out that I LOVE celebrity gossip.  I participate in a pretty active gossip community and one of the forums on that community is about the fashion.  I LOVE commenting on it!  Now I'm no fashionista myself, but I yearn to be classy, fabulous and well dressed.  Maybe someday, right?!  For now I want to devote a day each week (probably keep it to Saturdays) to reviewing the fashion sported by celebs throughout the week.  The good, the bad and the ugly.

So here it goes!


maggie gyllenhaal peter sarsgaard met ball 2011 04

Maggie Gyllenhaal isn't always the best dressed at the party, but I LOVE this dress.  I feel it's slightly ill fitting at the top for her, but the SPARKLE!  Yes, I'm a huge fan of the sparkle fad going on right now.  Her make-up looks fresh, but she could've done something with her hair.  Her dress is Stella McCartney and this was taken May 2nd at the MET Ball.

Another favorite this week is the always fabulous Reese Witherspoon.  Here she is at a premire of her new movie Water for Elephants.  She's dressed in Zac Posen.  LOVE this dress, even with the pointy, folded down neckline, she makes it look great.  I also can't keep my eyes off her shoes, there's a lot to be said about a simple pair of black peep toes (I'm not really a shoe girl so I must REALLY like them).  I'm also digging the hair, if you haven't noticed Reese tends to wear her hair the same way, it's nice to see her do something different.

Anna Paquin at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on April 30th and wearing this dress flawlessly.  I love the rich color and I think her face and hair compliment it nicely.  The only thing missing is some earrings perhaps? 

On to the bad and ugly...

Beyonce in Emilio Pucci at the MET Ball.  Now to be fair...I really can't stand Beyonce, she drives me nuts.  But look at this mess!  Can we say sausage casing???  Oh BTW, she couldn't even walk up stairs without help in this dress:

Up next is the ever popular JLo, who has apparently lost portions of her dress.  It looks like a straight jacket that went through a shredder.  I'll give it to her that she's got a fantastic set of legs, but she's too old for looks like it belongs on a stripper. 

Lastly, I'm going to probably get flamed for this, but Christina Ricci at the MET Ball.  This was actually a HUGE hit for most people but I HATED it.  It skeeves me out, I think it's because it looks like spider webs and well...spider webs skeeve me out.  Plus it's a hazard waiting to happen, how did someone not trip over it and break their face?  Plus her hair looks slimey and she needs bangs in front of her forehead to soften it up a little bit.  I'm OK with being alone in my opinion on this!!

The Train Wreck of the Week goes to....

Lady Gaga.  I just don't get this chick.  Where should I even start...look at those shoes!  They must be like lugging cinderblocks around, and I'm pretty sure that duct tape pieces of her tatas and not the usual pasties, uhm OUCH!  The hair, the necklace, the dress itself...I can't even compose all of my thoughts together on this monstrocity.  She looks desperate and cheap...we get it Gaga, you think you're something special!!!

So that's it for this week!  I hope you enjoyed looking at some of these outfits and hopefully this is something I can keep up with each week.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

I agree with you on all of these.....Lady Gaga needs to quit cause no one needs to see that mess

LOVE Reese's look- she is so classy! And Gaga {no lady required} hurts my eyes.

Honestly, if Beyonce's dress was not so restricting, and lacked the open boob part, I could see the appeal in the pattern. But any dress that you can't function in is ridiculous.

And when has GaGa ever been sporting good fashion? Oy.

I am also not a huge fan of Beyonce... and her fashion sense is questionable most of the time for me!! Love gossipy stuff:)

Love the Fashion Review!! I heard about Beyonce's dress on the radio but never did see what it was all about!! I just don't get why she goes overboard. Gaga earns her name well... GAG.
