Celebrity Style on Trial: Kristin Cavallari at the premiere of ‘Salt’

Kristin Cavallari at the premiere of Salt

When you know you’re appearing on the same red carpet as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (more on them later), you’re going to have to do something, anything to make sure you get your share of the attention. Huh, Kristin Cavallari?

What Kristin chose to do in this difficult situation was… well, see above.

There’s whole lot going on with this outfit. The spikes. The chains. The, er, girls, and the illusion that they might burst forth at any second. (Thankfully it is but an illusion: we get the feeling this dress is actually pretty secure – it just looks like a stray breeze might render her topless.) The upper torso. Did we mention the side boob? There’s side boob.

When you look at this outfit, you may well think “Rihanna“. And you’d be right to think that, because Rihanna’s worn it too, only in red. It’s a much more “typical” kind of style for R, but that doesn’t mean other people can’t wear it too, obviously, so tell us what you think of Kristin Cavallari’s attempt to wear spikes and chains? Hit or miss? Fashion crime, or absolutely fine?

    I think she needs to be careful not to drop her dinner in that pelican bib.

    I’m not sure if it’s a crime of fashion, but I am sure that it doesn’t suit her. It makes her look top-heavy and badly proportioned. Additionally she should have done something else with her hair and been a lot bolder regarding lipstick and nail polish. The dress calls for it!

    Desperate. Don’t even try to compete with the Pitt-Jolies, you can’t. No one can, except maybe Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry.

    It is a fashion mistake. Trying too hard. This event was not about her and this screams. look at me look at me..desperate because the crowd is saying NO.

    it is her greasy looking hair and caked on make-up that ruin the look for me

    Mistake: she’s short waisted and the drape makes it worse plus her hair is all wrong.

    Trying way too hard. It doesn’t suit her – the chains and spikes on Rihanna look great – but on her – it makes her look boxy, not curvy – the low cut isn’t flattering. She’s clearly got a great body – but this dress doesn’t do a thing for her.

    The color doesn’t do anything for her complexion — the hair is a mess, the makeup makes her look old — and the shoes look stripper-ish.

    Sorry the whole thing is a giant miss – and what business does she have wearing this kind of outfit to a premiere of a movie, she isn’t even a part of? (If she is, still doesn’t change much – but gives her more reason to try and call attention to herself.)

    It reminds me of the outfit Samantha wore for karaoke in Sex and The City 2, only Kim Cattrall pulled it off better and this is not a good shape or colour.

    It reminds me of the outfit Samantha wore for karaoke in Sex And The City 2, only Kim Cattrall pulled it off better, and this is a bad shape and ugly colour. In my opinion, anyway.

    Tacky clubwear from the nineties. Am I the only one seeing tacky clubwear from the nineties?

    I think she is a cute girl, but everything is not for everybody, she made a mistake with this outfit choice, I am sure she will have another chance to redeem herself!

    I would have really liked that dress on Angelina herself, actually. This girl doesn’t have the attitude to pull it off. Plus, her hair looks limp, and her make up looks greasy. You can’t wear an attention-getting outfit like that with flat, lifeless hair and make up! It looks mismatched.

    I like the dress, and the outfit is OK, but I don’t like it on her really. I don’t think it suits her; I feel like she wore it because she wanted to look trendy, not because she really liked it. As a result I think she looks stiff and forced. Plus I wish she had worn her hair up; it bugs me so much when people wear tops or dresses with detail at the shoulder, then have their hair covering it or distracting us from it.
    I like the way Rihanna wore it much better!

    From what I’ve seen on the Hills (and tmz), I’ve decided that I don’t like her at all. Seeing her in this outfit makes me feel good knowing that it’s another fail. An embarrassing desperation for attention.

    Awful. When the neckline in its more moderate cuts doesn’t look good, a drop like this is just horrible.
