Red carpet fashion disasters

I’m glad Cameron Diaz is back to short hair because I think it really suits her, but this nude, tight, strapless gown just didn’t stand out to me at all. Yawn.

I love Berenice, and she’s French a.k.a. stylish, so I expected good things. And this dress is nice. Helen Mirren would have looked lovely in it. But for her? Too old.

The jacket. The big problem is the jacket.

I love Ellie Kemper and I wanted to like this dress, but it was the same color as her hair. And that really bothered me.

Another awards show, another fancy bathrobe…

 Is Kristen Wiig allergic to color? Has she ever seen a rainbow? Does she have a stylist with stock in beige dresses that look like dishrags? What is going on???

I was really hoping Melissa would rock it, but this dress was just bad news. In particular, the bodice. It was just a bad decision.

 I don’t think this photo does the dress justice – how much I disliked it, anyway. It was too stiff, too structured, too hard. Drop the Lisbeth Salandar act, Rooney, and relax a little.

 It almost seems unfair to put Melissa on this list, because she so often looks like a trainwreck on the red carpet. It’s like she’s wearing glittery pyjamas. She should lend them to Meryl Streep for next year’s Golden Globes.
