Keira Knightley at the UK premiere of Anna Karenina

Style Trial: Keira Knightley at the UK premiere of Anna Karenina

It’s been a while since Keira Knightley last graced The Fashion Police’s holding cell, but she’s currently busy promoting Anna Karenina, which means we’ll probably be seeing a whole lot more of her, so we figured we’d put her On Trial, to make sure she keeps toeing the line. So, what do you make of this Chanel couture gown, worn to the London premiere of the movie. We’ll go on record and say that while Keira would make an excellent toilet doll in this (In fact, note to self: see about having a ‘Keira’ doll created for The Fashion Police guest bathroom…) we quite like this, and she looks undeniably gorgeous here. Then again, it could just be that we’re…

Stuck Together Clothes Crimes: Glove Sleeve Sweater

As far as Stuck Together Clothes Crimes go, sweaters with attached gloves have to be amongst the most hilarious. Seriously, can YOU look at the image above and keep a straight face? We’re impressed, if so. As chucklesome as this is, though, the fact remains that most glove sweaters are the type your mother used to DIY for you when you were a kid, i.e. the gloves can be removed, which makes the item just a bit unnecessary (unless you’re REALLY prone to losing your gloves, obviously, but even if you are, do you really want to have to wear the same sweater day after day, just so you can attach them to it? Thought not.), as opposed to being…

Ridiculous Runways: Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Spring/Summer 2013

OK, usual set of disclaimers before we go any further – please feel free to refer back to these throughout our Fashion Week Coverage… 1. But it’s ART! 2. It’s SO EDGY! 3. You just don’t understaaaaaaaaannnnd! 4. You’re not SUPPOSED to wear it, you’re just supposed to APPRECIATE it! Yeah, yeah, we know. But this The Fashion Police, not, and we’re here to have a light-hearted look at the sillier side of the fashion world, not to fawn over a model dressed as a giant sweet, and talk about how edgy and uh-may-zing it all is. With that said, here are some photos from the  Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Spring/Summer 2013 show: enjoy! [Images:]

ugly sheer pants

Just when we thought shants couldn’t get any worse…

…Roberto Cavalli had to go and prove us wrong. Again. We’re guessing these totally sheer pants just weren’t quite revealing enough as they were, hence the need to cut giant holes in the hips. Because who WOULDN’T want to showcase their hips like this, framed by the flimsy, animal print fabric of a pair of shants? WHO, we ask you? And to think you can have all of this for the bargain price of £304, too! Walk, don’t run, people… [Buy them]  

too long trousers

The Foot Snatcher Strikes Again

It’s been a while since we heard from our old enemy the Foot Snatcher, who, as you will recall, sneaks around the fashion world, stealing the feet of helpless fashion victims, and leaving them looking like their legs got chopped off at the ankle. Say what you like about skinny jeans, but they’ve certainly helped keep the Foot Snatcher at bay. At first glance, we thought this was another Foot Snatching crime in action. On closer inspection of the evidence, however, we can just see the toe of this model’s shoe peeking out from the hem of her trousers, so we can stand down the alert. Really, though, this image is just an excuse to show you how ugly these…

Wearing white after Labor day

Style SOS: Wearing White After Labor Day

[All items: Zara] Today is Labor Day in the United States, so we figured it was the perfect time to re-visit the old “Never wear white after Labor day” fashion “rule”. This one may have died out a little amongst younger generations, but we’re still surprised by how often we see it quoted in fashion magazines and on blogs, so we thought we’d take a closer look and try to decide if it’s a rule that’s really worth observing. Now, if you’re not in the US, you may be a little bit confused by this one. We don’t observe Labor Day here in the UK, for instance, and we don’t really have any seasonal “rules” about colour, either. For the…
