Fashion Monday Madness

After the craziness of a weekend that saw 13 inches of snow outside my front door, the awesomeness of Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl, and the massive crowds at the grocery stores preparing for the blizzard, I'm very ready for Monday and our fashion chat.  So let's get right to it.....

The Good....

Keira Knightley gives us the best of both worlds in this gown that offers prim and proper in front and naughty in back.  The gown fits her perfectly and is a color that goes beautifully with her hair color and skin tone.  With such an intriguing and attention-grabbing bodice, extra accessories aren't necessary.  Another A+ look from Keira that has me totally jealous.

Kathering Heigl looks like the belle of the ball in this flowing and fitted gown.  The diaphanous steel-grey material looks dream-like and romantic.  The bodice has an intriguing fit with an eye-catching openness to the back.  The hair is a bit too severe for such a romance-inspired dress but that's Katherine's usual hairdo of choice.  I'm too distracted by the glamour of this dress to be critical of any small issues.  Kudos to Katherine on a nice return to form!

The Bad....

Actress Mia Wasikowska is wearing a craft project gone awry.  The silk material looks cheap and the gathered mid-section looks as if the seamstress lost control of the sewing machine.  The white "undershirt" looks out of place and cheapens the overall look even more.  In the end, it's an ill-conceived 4-H project that won't win any blue ribbons.

They say that fashion is art, but for Rooney Mara, this piece of art is a complete mess.  This cocktail dress is overworked and poorly-fitted and looks uncomfortable to walk in.  The bodice looks like a road map and the uneven hem looks like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.  From head to toe she looks memorable, but definitely NOT in a good way.

The Ugly....

Leave it to Bjork to make another fashion statement by looking like the Staypuff Marshmallow Man.  As if the voluminous coat weren't bad enough, add in the blue skirt, tights, and boots and it's a blueberry nightmare.  At least no animals were harmed in the making of this outfit.

Looking more like a mug shot than a pop princess, Rihanna looks disheveled with her latest hair color and chewed-up Daisy Duke shorts.  Add in the thigh-high boots and you have a Pretty Woman reject.  Here's hoping she's dumps out the dirty dishwater and goes back to one of her more successful hair colors.

That's a wrap for this week!  Let me know what you think of these ensembles in the comments below and join me for another busy week here at my place.
