Are skinny jeans over?

Jeans: Topshop We’ve been hearing rumours about the death of the skinny jean for quite some time now, but is it true, we wonder? Are skinny jeans over? Let’s take a look at some evidence… Embed from Getty Images Exhibit A: Jennifer Aniston wearing boot cut jeans and a classic white shirt in New York last month. Boot. Cut. Jeans. We haven’t see those since… well, since Friends wasn’t just re-runs, let’s put it that way. Is Jen bringing the bootcut back? Well, the jury’s still out on this one: Jennifer Aniston, after all, has always stuck to a pretty classic style, and she’s been wearing more or less the same things for years now (no criticism, by the way,…

Style Stealer: Kristen Stewart’s white trouser suit

Head-to-toe white is a look that many people describe as “brave” – partly because it’s hard to imagine wearing so much white without spilling something on it (Which would kinda spoil the look, huh?), but also, we suspect, because it’s something of a head-turner. An all-white look is a guaranteed way to stand out in a crowd, even when the outfit itself is as simple as Kristen Stewart’s is here. Kristen was spotted wearing this white trouser suit, paired with a v-neck t-shirt and white patent loafers, while out and about in New York this month. The success of this look is all down to the tailoring: the sharp cut of the jacket and trousers is offset nicely by the…

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…

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…
