Fashion Smashion: Unique or Ugly?

It could just be that I'm spending far too much of my time in jeans these days, but there's something about each of these outfits that just doesn't seem to quite work. What's your verdict?

Exhibit A: I dunno, Whitney Port, but if someone said 'hey, why don't you wear this beige satin jumpsuit with draped harem pants, and team it with some coral heels, a chain purse and chunky necklace,' I'd be inclined to show them the hand. But that's just me.

Exhibit B: Or you, Katie Holmes, a cropped leather jacket over a ruched dress and worn with grey suede shoes with ankle straps? You seem to be unsure whether you're Biker Chick, Formal Chick or Nana Chick. And please don't tell me that's one of your designs...you lost me with that satin and lace jumpsuit monstrosity you co-created.

Exhibit C: And, lastly, you Ali Larter. Not only is part of your top missing, but apparently you are wearing sheer chiffon pants (yes, I can see your hand in your pocket, so I don't dare look anywhere else).

I love a good what was she thinking? Especially Ali Larter - she's showing too much skin for my liking.

Katie's stylist must have had a hangover that day. Bad, bad, bad.

I say their stylists got together over just one too many cosmopolitans ... those are the kind of fashion statements that you think up at the pub after 10pm.

1 is fug
2 is OK
3 - call me crazy, but the girl almost pulls it off! Unless those pants really are sheer?

Yeah, not really diggin' any of those looks.

Oh yes, they're sheer...can you see her fingers in her pocket? That's how sheer they are...methinks she got lucky with the light in the photos...

Wow. Nothing nice here. Proof that lots of money (hello, Katie Holmes) cannot buy one style.

I love Whitney. I think she looks good. She's always a little fashion brave.

The others... meh! ;)
