      Fashion Police at the Duke of Cambridge’s Gala Dinner for the Royal Marsden

      #490220947 / gettyimages.com Our celebrity style suspects partied with none other than the Duke of Cambridge last night, at a charity gala dinner, to raise funds for the Royal Marsden Hospital, of which the Duke and Duchess are patrons. Joining the Duke at Windsor Castle were the likes of Ralph Lauren, Benedick Cumberbatch, Emily Watson, Kate Moss and more. Did they manage to dress themselves in a manner befitting the occasion, though? Well, let’s take a look and see. In the pages which follow, we’ve compiled a dossier of photographic evidence: feel free to page through and give us your comments on each celebrity’s attire. Most importantly, we need to know: Who was the best dressed? And who should be locked…


      STYLE TRIAL | Elizabeth Olsen’s See-Through Dress from the Godzilla premiere

      Elizabeth Olsen at the ‘Godzilla’ European premiere OK, so “see-through” is possibly a bit of an exaggeration here. We can only see-through PART of Elizabeth Olsen’s dress here, and given the kind of thing we’re used to seeing on the red carpet these days, that’s no small thing. With that said, we just don’t think we’re ever going to get fully on board with the “see-through skirt” trend. Because we’re old, presumably (just thought we’d get that out there to save you the trouble..). To us, though, this kind of look will also look like a wardrobe malfunction: as if the poor starlet got dressed, but forgot to put on the petticoat which was supposed to go with the dress….

      Kim Kardashian

      Style Trial | Kim Kardashian’s off-white ensemble for the USC Shoah Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala

      Kim Kardashian at the USC Shoah Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala Did you know Kim Kardashian is about to get married? Kim Kardashian is about to get married. And last night she got in some practice by wearing this bridal-inspired all-white ensemble to the the USC Shoah Foundation 20th Anniversary Gala. You can’t see from these photos, but the skirt has a very long train, so she’d have been able to get in some practice walking down the aisle in it for sure. For us, the most amazing this about this look is that Kim has obviously picked out a facial expression to go with the outfit, and she rigidly maintained it all night as far as we can tell. Seriously, we’ve examined…

      eva green

      Style Trial | Eva Green’s Elie Saab black and white mesh jumpsuit

      Actress Eva Green wore this unusual black and white jumpsuit to the world premiere of Penny Dreadful in New York last night: we want to know what you think of it? This is from the Elie Saab Resort 2014 collection, and features a black mesh top, attached to a white jumpsuit with wide sleeves. The trousers, meanwhile, are equally wide, and it would appear poor Eva was the unfortunate victim of that dastardly fashion criminal, The Foot Snatcher, because we can’t see her feet at all. Now we know why the Elie Saab presentation showed this collection in motion: an outfit like this is designed to flow, and we’re guessing it would probably look better with a bit of movement…

      celebrities at the MET Costume Institute Gala 2014

      Fashion Police at the MET Costume Institute Gala 2014

      #488352219 / gettyimages.com Last night saw fashion’s elite assemble on the red carpet for the Charles James: Beyond Fashion’ Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: or “the MET Costume Institute Gala”, as we’ll be calling it for the sake of simplicity. The MET Gala is our favourite red carpet event: it’s not quite “fancy dress”, but the themed nature of the evening allows celebrities and designers to give free reign to their imaginations, so, unlike the Oscars, say, which have become somewhat dull in recent years, the MET Costume Institute Gala provides us with plenty of outrageous and inventive outfits to feast our eyes upon. Because celebrities have the “dressing to a theme” excuse, it’s hard to accuse…


      Best Dressed of the Week

      Before we get on to this week’s Best Dressed contest, let’s take a quick look at last week’s winner: Kate Upton, in this gorgeous black dress… Kate was actually our pick for Best Dressed out of last week’s selection, too, so what can we say: our readers obviously have impeccable taste! Now to decide who was the best dressed celebrity THIS week! As you page through the style suspects below, you’ll be given the option to vote each celebrity either “innocent” or “guilty” of committing crimes of fashion, on a sliding scale of 1 -10, with 10 being the best dressed, and 1 being the worst. Once you’ve cast your vote, just scroll down the page to see the winners,…


      Style Stealer | Frankie Sanford’s (The Saturdays) bright yellow Zara coat

      Zara yellow piqué coat, £79.99 We loved this bright yellow coat when we spotted it on the Zara website a couple of weeks ago, and we love it even more now that we’ve had the opportunity to see it in action, as worn by Frankie of The Saturdays to the Kiss FM studios last week: (For those of you who’ve never heard of Frankie Sanford or The Saturdays, she’s the one in the bright yellow coat. Obviously.) This is a lightweight coat, suitable for the current season, and we love the 60s-style stand-up collar, and the causal-but-cool style. We also love the colour: yellow (especially bright yellows like this one) is a shade a lot of people hesitate to wear, fearing…


      Best Dressed of the Week

      As the week draws to a close, it’s time to put on your Fashion Police Juror hats, and decide which celebrity was the Best Dressed of the Week. To crown your Queen of Style, all you have to do is take a look at the images before and decide whether the celebrity in the photo is Innocent or Guilty of committing crimes of fashion. You vote on a sliding scale, with 10 being the highest possible fashion accolade, and 1 being the mark of a true fashion criminal. Once a few of you have voted, the contestants will automatically be ranked in a list at the bottom of the post (or that’s the idea, anyway!), with the Best Dressed of…


      STYLE STEALER | Jennifer Hudson’s polka dot skirt and red heels

      We loved this polka dot pencil skirt/ red heels outfit, which Jennifer Hudson wore to a charity event in London last week. On paper, this might not sound like anything to write home about, but this is the kind of classic look which never really goes out of fashion, and which has tons of impact, despite its simplicity. Polka dots and red shoes always create a vaguely retro feel, but we love the way Jennifer has given this look a contemporary feel with the slouchy t-shirt and zip-front coat. She looks effortlessly elegant, with the bright red lips providing the perfect finishing touch to an outfit which could be easily adapted to a variety of different occasions. If you want…


      IMPORTANT! There is nothing wrong with Elsa Pataky’s baby bump! We are not the E! Network! Everyone calm down!

      [We posted this on Facebook earlier today, but wanted to put it here too, just so we don’t miss anyone…] It’s come to our attention that, yet again, the E! Network “Fashion Police” show has brought the Fashion Police name into disrepute by apparently mocking Elsa Pataky’s baby bump on air. We’re getting a bit of abuse on Twitter about this (This has extended to people asking if our Twitter account should be shut down: things like this could obviously have quite serious implications for our brand and business, and it’s really disturbing to us that people will do things like this without checking to make sure they’re targeting the right person…), so we just want to clarify once again…


      Fashion Police at the 2014 Oscars | 86th Academy Awards Red Carpet Gallery

      It’s the 2014 Oscars, everyone! On the morning after the 86th Academy Awards, it’s time to take a look back at the red carpet dresses, and decide which stars deserve a Fashion Police gold star for their efforts, and which could be accused of committing crimes of fashion. At a time when red carpet fashion is becoming increasingly tame, we thought the 2014 Oscars provided a particularly “safe” collection of dresses, with very few to either wow us or cause us to reach for the cuffs. Our personal choice for Best Dressed would be Best Supporting Actress winner, Lupita Nyong’o, who was a vision in pale blue Prada, with a matching headband. As always, however, we leave it up to you…


      Gwyneth Paltrow attracts Fashion Police attention at Iron Man 3 premiere

      When it comes to being over-exposed on the red carpet, Gwyneth Paltrow is… let’s just say she’s known to us. She has priors, basically. Her appearance at last night’s Iron Man 3 premiere in Los Angeles, however, was revealing even for Gwynie: It’s an “illusion dress”: both in the sense that the white section at the front creates the illusion of a slimmer figure (not that Gwyneth needs to look slimmer, we hasten to add), and in the sense that when you just see it from the front, it creates the illusion of not being a complete crime of fashion. Alas, when she turns to the side, the illusion is ruined and the whole look becomes about her bare ass. Awesome. This…

      Gold statuettes at the Oscars 2013

      Fashion Police at the Oscars 2013: red carpet roundup

      We fear the age of celebrity stylists has made the Oscars boring. Gone are the days of Bjork in a swan dress or Celine Dion in a back-to-front tuxedo: these are the days of (mostly) immaculate hair and makeup, and very few risks. You could say that was a good thing, of course. The Fashion Police had to make very few arrests at the Oscars 2013, which technically means that most people were “well dressed”. It does make it all a bit dull, though, doesn’t it? Fashion Police at the Oscars 2013: red carpet roundup You’ll find the full gallery from the Oscars 2013 red carpet at the bottom of this post. Before you get to it, though, some very…

      Fashion Police at the 21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

      For everyone who doesn’t get invited to the Academy Awards, there is the Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party. And for everyone who thought the Oscars 2013 red carpet was just a tad boring, there is Paz Vega: Paz Vega at the  Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party Seriously, the shoes are worthy of an entire post on their own, aren’t they? Hell, the RUFFLES are worthy of their own post. WHY wasn’t Paz Vega at the Oscars? If everyone had dressed like this, we might have needed a little less coffee… Meanwhile, for everyone who thought the Oscars were just a little too CLASSY, here are Heidi Klum’s breasts: Heidi Klum at the  Annual Elton…

      Little Mix on the red carpet at the Brit Awards 2013

      Fashion Police at the Brit Awards 2013

      Last night, celebrities rolled up to the O2 Arena in London for the Brit Awards 2013. The Brits are traditionally one of the awards ceremonies at which The Fashion Police make most arrests. For reasons we don’t quite understand, while the other awards shows tend to bring out the best in the celebrities who walk their red carpets (Or MOST of them, anyway…), the Brits… doesn’t. Was this year better or worse than usual in the style stakes? Let’s take a look and see… Little Mix at the Brit Awards 2013 The Brit Awards 2013: Arrivals… The photo above more or less sums up this year’s Brits fashion for us. This is Little Mix: a band formed for The X-Factor,…

      Elle Style Awards

      Fashion Police at the Elle Style Awards 2013

      Elle Style Awards 2013 After the snoozefest that was the 2013 BAFTA Awards, we had high hopes for the Elle Style Awards 2013, and luckily we weren’t disappointed. Being a Style Awards, you’d naturally expect the celebrity suspects in attendance to be a little more, well, stylish than those at other awards ceremonies, who, to be fair, are normally actors and musicians, who may or may not have any interest in style. Actually, though, this isn’t always the case, and sometimes we find style awards to be even more chock-full of fashion criminals than any other red carpet event. Strange, but true. Happily, however, the officers in attendance at the Elle Style Awards found themselves handing out more Gold Stars…

      2013 BAFTA Awards

      Fashion Police at the 2013 BAFTA Awards: red carpet

      2013 BAFTA Awards YAWN. Well, it wasn’t the most exciting red carpet we’ve ever seen, was it? For the 2013 BAFTA Awards in London last night, most people seemed to be obeying some kind of unspoken “black or white” rule (or at least, the ones our agency decided to photograph were, anyway. Marion Cotillard, for instance, looked amazing in bright yellow, but, of course, we didn’t get a photo of her…). Perhaps the monochrome trend is more powerful than we knew? What this meant, of course, was that anyone who dared to wear a brighter colour instantly stood out from the crowd. Step forward, Jessica Chastain, in brilliant blue: Great colour for her hair and skin tone, and kudos to…


      Fashion Police at the Grammy Awards 2013: arrivals

      The Grammy Awards 2013 The Oscars may be the awards ceremony of the year, but when it comes to crimes of fashion, the Grammys are always the ones to watch. When the music world’s finest gather on the red carpet, you’re almost guaranteed to see some serious fashion fails mixed in with those gorgeous gowns. You can see our roundup of suspects from the Grammy Awards 2013 in the gallery below, but here are some of the stand-out fashion moments: When Angelina Jolie first patented “The Leg” at last year’s Oscars, it was pretty funny. When everyone started to copy her, however, it was pretty embarrassing. And when J.Lo is STILL doing it a year later, in a desperate bid to show…

      Kate Middleton portrait

      Kate Middleton portrait helps sell French Connection tops

        Let’s talk about that Kate Middleton portrait for a second, shall we? Now, we don’t advocate body/face snarking. At all. In fact, we find it totally depressing when we ask the ladies and gentlemen of the Fashion Police Jury what they think of a celebrity outfit, and get a bunch of comments on their face/figure/how old they look, etc, etc. These are things the celebrities (mostly) can’t do much about, you see, and as for the “OMG SHE LOOKS SO OLD!” comments, well, people get old. It happens. It’ll even happen to you one day, if you’re lucky. In this case, though, we feel no compunction about commenting on Kate Middleton’s face because, well, THAT ISN’T KATE MIDDLETON’S FACE,…

      Jennifer Lopez 2013 Golden Globes

      GALLERY: Fashion Police at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards

      It’s here! The Golden Globe Awards is one of the busiest nights in the Fashion Police calendar, and our officers have been working tirelessly for – well, let’s just say minutes at least – to round up the celebrity suspects in attendance at last night’s events. We’ve already singled out Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore and Lucy Liu in earlier posts: now here’s the best – and worst – of the rest of the Golden Globes red carpet. These celebrities stand before you, shaking in their stilettos as they wait to find out whether you’ll deem them to be fashion criminals, or whether you’ll find them innocent of all charges. So tell us… Who was your best and worst dressed celebrity at the 2013…


      Fashion Police at the 2013 Golden Globes: Anne Hathaway in Chanel Couture

        Love it. We’ve got to hand it to Anne Hathaway: we may not have loved everything she’s worn in the run-up to award seasons, but she really pulled it out of the bag for the Golden Globes, and looked absolutely stunning in this white Chanel Couture gown. Anne often reminds us of Audrey Hepburn, especially with her shorter hair, but never more so than here, in a dress Audrey herself would’ve been proud of. Unsurprisingly, she took home the ‘Best Supporting Actress” Globe for her role in Les Miserables: should she be named Best Dressed, too? [Images: PRPhotos.com]

      Fashion Police at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards: Julianne Moore in Tom Ford

      Fashion Police at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards: Julianne Moore in Tom Ford

        Julianne Moore’s performance in Game Change won her the Golden Globe for Best Performance in a Miniseries or Television Film last night, but did her Tom Ford dress win her any Best Dressed plaudits from the Fashion Police officers, we wonder? Well, we wouldn’t go quite that far, but Julianne always looks elegant on the red carpet, and this was a safe, albeit striking choice.  She teamed her simple sheath dress with a sleek updo and a slash of bright pink lipstick. What did you think of her look?

      Lucy Liu Golden Globe Awards 2013

      Fashion Police at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards: Lucy Liu

      OK, we’re just going to say it: we actually really liked Lucy Liu’s Golden Globes 2013 look. No, we’re serious. This Carolina Herrera floral number seems to have made it into most of the Worst Dressed Lists this morning: so far we’ve seen it described as “grandma’s drapes” and “a dress made out of wallpaper, plus numerous references to “toilet roll dolls”, but we’re going to be contrary and say we thought it was a breath of fresh air after all of the shiny sequins and boring blacks we normally see at these kind of events. It’s bold, it’s beautiful, and we think she totally works it. Do you? Fashion crime or floral fabulous? [Image © HFPA/Golden Globe Awards]

      Taylor Swift

      GALLERY: Fashion Police at the 2013 People’s Choice Awards

      It’s award season, police cadets. That means late nights, lots of coffee and enough dresses to make you feel dizzy. For us, we mean. For the celebrities attending these events it means dressing up pretty and posing on the red carpet: tough job, but someone’s got to do it. Unfortunately for them, it also means joining our Fashion Police lineup, and having our officers decide whether or not they’re committing crimes of fashion or not. Nail-biting, we’re sure. Awards season kicks off this year with the 2013 People’s Choice Awards, attended by Taylor Swift, Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence and a whole host of other celebrities, some better dressed than others. You’ll find the full list of winners below, but of course, we’re…

      Lea Michele's bright yellow outfit

      Style Trial: Lea Michele’s bright yellow look

      Canary yellow is one of those colours that people normally describe as a “brave” choice when someone attempts to dress in it. And we all know that “brave” is just another word for “crazy” in fashion-speak. We don’t know about you, but if someone told us we were “brave” for wearing a certain outfit, we’d probably want to run home and change it. Well, we’re not THAT brave, after all. Wearing something this bright definitely isn’t “brave” in the sense that jumping into the ocean to rescue a drowning kitten is “brave”, say, but it certainly takes a bit of confidence. Luckily, confidence isn’t something Lea Michele lacks, so her choice of this yellow skirt and jacket, worn to the…

      Anna Hathaway, Jessica Chastain & Amanada Seyfried’s red carpet looks

      Anne Hathaway continues to fascinate us with her choice of outfits for her Les Miserables promotional activities: we may not have exactly loved everything she’s worn over the past few weeks (That “shower curtain” dress, as one of our readers dubbed it, springs to mind, for instance…), but at least she’s never boring, eh? For last night’s 2013 National Board of Review Awards Gala, Anne went for a simple black trouser suit, fancied up with a bow-necked blouse and some strappy sandals. Co-star Amanda Seyfriend, meanwhile, went for a midi-length halter dress by Bottega Veneta: while Jessica Chastain took us back to black with a simple-but-effective Alexander McQueen column dress with gold collar: Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain are both up for…

      Zooey Deschanel

      Zooey Deschanel wears Naeem Khan, says you don’t have to be skinny

       [PRPhotos.com] So pretty. So girlie. So floral. So Zooey. Zooey Deschanel wore this black and white Naeem Khan floral print prom dress to last night’s TCA Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, where she answered questions from the audience on the meaning of her name (she must get tired of that one, huh?), and looked cute in her usual Zooey style. People tend to describe Zooey’s look as “vintage”, which is a kinda meaningless term (especially when applied to decidedly NON-vintage, pre-Fall 2013 designer dress) given that “vintage” could refer to any style of clothing, from any decade in the history of fashion, but in this case, she’s gone for a 60s-influenced look, especially when combined with the hair and makeup….

      Kerry Washington's in Louis Vuitton at the Django Unchained Berlin photocall

      Django Unchained photocall: Kerry Washington in Louis Vuitton

      This isn’t the type of outfit just anyone could wear. The giant bow hair accessory is super-cute… but could look really childish if you weren’t very careful. The dress, meanwhile, is a great shape, with a great print, but the combination of long sleeves, high neck, loose fit and midi-length hem is a great way to look instantly frumpy… if you weren’t very careful. White, pointed toe stilettos, meanwhile? We still tend to associate them with the so-called “Essex girls” of the 80s – no offence to anyone from Essex (who was alive in the 80s) who happens to be reading this. So no: this isn’t the type of outfit just anyone could wear. Kerry Washington can, though. And not only can…

      Emma Stone photos

      Gangster Squad premiere: Emma Stone wears a red dress and heels

        Emma Stone has dyed her hair blonde again. We prefer her natural red (we’re biased) but she definitely made up for the lack of red in her hair with this all-red ensemble, worn to the L.A. premiere of Gangster Squad last night. Emma wore a dress by Lanvin, heels by Christian Louboutin and an oversized necklace which tied in nicely with the jewel on her belt. Matchy-matchy madness or monochrome magnificence: which is it?
