Men usually shy away from prints, but Izumi gets styling of men’s separates perfectly. There is a sense of thoughtful ease in his look. The nonchalance of his scarf as a “tie” lifts his ensemble from contrived to cool. Keeping the animal print pant with darker undertones in mind as the statement, it prevents him from looking too loud and flashy and pairs well with his subdued metallic jacket. Men should follow suit. Pun intended.
Starting from the worst of the worst: Anne Hathaway in Prada
This was a complete, all around no-no. The darts at her nipples were such a faux paus. The silhouette is so reminiscent of the late 90’s/early 2000’s. And to top it off, the back was a monstrosity. Nothing made sense!
The 5 Most Mediocre.
5. Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta
Overall pretty, but the color washed her out and we’ve seen this style before.
4. Jennifer Aniston in Valentino
Yes to the Valentino red, but no to the silhouette. It looks as if she’s wearing an expensive prom dress.
3. Reese Witherspoon in Louis Vuitton
All I have to say is, been there, done that!
2. Renee Zellweger in Carolina Herrera
Here’s another silhouette reincarnated from the late 90’s/early 2000’s. Where’d the modern ingenuity go?
1. Charlize Theron in Dior
She looks good, she always looks good, but how many times do we have to see this style in white, or for that matter, in any color? Anne Hathaway just had a fashion flop in a very similar Chanel dress at the Golden Globes only a month ago! I’d have to say, this is way more flattering than Hathaway’s body cast of a dress, but it’s so boring and so expected!
The 10 Best
10. Kerry Washington in Miu Miu
The idea is there and this is a sensational color, but it’s a bit ill-fitting towards the bottom.
9. Sally Field in Valentino
Here’s the iconic Valentino red again, but how dainty and feminine! She looks so gorgeous and young! The sleeve trend is spot on.
8. Jane Fonda in Versace
Hello, hottie! Age ain’t nothing but a number. She’s over seventy, but looks better than some twenty-somethings. This silhouette is so Dynasty-esque. This canary yellow is so chic and the dress hits all the right spots!
7. Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott
This dress fits her like a glove. It’s as if she was painted into this dress with black lacquer and liquid gold.
6. Kelly Rowland in Donna Karan
This is tuxedo suiting for women at its best. The black and white trend is very this year and the architectural draping is the sign of the times in fashion technology.
5. Olivia Munn in Marchesa
Four words: glamour all the way!
4. Nancy O’Dell in Mark Zunino
Talk about, va va voom! I love it when correspondents make the cut. This shade of blue is outstanding against her skin tone!
3. Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture
Her fall was actually a success! It allowed everyone to see in great detail this fabulous dress. Oh, Jennifer, please don’t be embarrassed because this makes you more relatable to your fans with your charismatic personality!
2. Zoe Saldana in Alexis Mabille Couture
The red carpet is the place for stars to experiment and choose original designs that fit their body type. Celebrities need to be remembered on such grand occasions as this, and she certainly won’t be forgettable. What a fun, fresh, and flirty dress! I am so obsessing over this one.
1. Jessica Chastain in Armani Prive
This is what you call, perfection. She took old Hollywood glamour and made it modern. Her waist was cinched in perfectly and even her cleavage was perfect! Brava!
Lastly, the 2 Best Dressed Men Tie
Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Gucci and Daniel Day-Lewis in Domenico Vacca
A rare gem I encountered in the Inner Sunset?! This district of San Francisco is more known for its hipsters, SF lifers, scrubbed-up doctors and nurses, and Hong Kong descendants. But on this usually sunny winter day, I came upon … Continue reading
Like I said before, how can animal prints be given the boot? It is effortless, yet chic, and it gives a great platform to build upon. In transit, I spotted this adorable young lady through my uncannily freakish peripheral vision. Constantly thinking about travel, style, and comfort, she nailed it. Although everything she had on was of a slim silhouette, she was ready for a flight, meeting family, and going out with friends in the same day if she wanted to! Her pink, buttoned-up blouse underneath that leopard-print jacket was perfection for any occasion.
