Fashion Smashion: Week in Review

It's that time again! Time to give your commentary on the frocks that my Fashion Smashion radar has detected this week. Quite a lot of 'meh', really...not a lot of fabulous. Even my 'love' frocks are more 'like'...but I do truly detest the couple in the 'loathe' category. See what you think...


Love
Christina Ricci (above left) makes my 'love' list for the second week running. Girlfriend is on a roll...she's come a long way from the little Addams Family chick with the oversized forehead.

Anne Hathaway (above right) could make a paper bag look elegant...she's got that old Hollywood class going on. Love her. The dress isn't usually something that would ring my bell, but I think she makes it sing.


Meh
All of these dresses are eye-catching; the women in them are unquestionably stunning; but there's something about each of them that just doesn't quite get there for me. Whether it's the sheer white panel of Isla's (top left) ; Lucy's frou frou bust (top right); Emma's punk deconstruction (bottom left); or Beyonce's peacock mini (bottom right), they're just short of kicking butt.


Loathe
The Bones clothing budget must have had a severe shaving because poor Emily Deschanel (above left) has had to raid her Aunty Ethel's wardrobe. I think my nana had one just like this, in polyester.

And Vanessa Williams (above right)...Holy. Crap. Please tell me you were going to an 80s fancy dress party.

No 1 child of yours has more clothes taste!

I love that Christina Ricci dress - unfortunately for me the rest are all meh-verging-on-hideous.

I always find Vanessa Williams a little 'wrong'... not sure what it is about her!

I can see what you find wrong about the top half of Miss Fisher's dress, but red hair & emerald green gets me every time! I think she looks pretty & cute - maybe it's that turned in toe as well! It's a great length on her.

I like your loves - Christina's hair colour and fringe really suit her, and Anne's dress? Liquid gold, Jerry!

My favourite is Beyonce's, I would wear it every day if I possessed it (with some very opaque stockings)!

Christina Ricci looks incredible! I need her trainer!

Lots of meh for me. What was Emma thinking? Totally wrong colours for her.

Can't even speak about Vanessa. Cripes.
