What with all the misery of winter, recession, strikes, the Eurozone crisis etc etc, I thought I’d brighten up my mood with some pretty pictures of nice (and not so nice, of course!) celebrity fashion.
First up today, I thought Leona Lewis looked stunning in this evening dress recently …
But I’m not sure about the current trend for your dress dragging on the floor – I’ve seen a lot of this lately – I mean, it’s clearly too long for her, isn’t it? Weird.
I was interested to see Gwyneth Paltrow wearing a short blue version of the Nicole Kidman dress I wrote about in my last Frock It post, designed by Stella McCartney.
Although I prefer it both shorter and in blue, I’m still not a fan of this design – and I don’t think the black accessories go with it very well either, Gwyneth.
Moving on, Kylie has been out and about, launching (another) new perfume.
Is it me, or is Kylie looking a bit stretched and face-lifty of late? I’ve always been a big fan of Kylie (she’s just so NICE, isn’t she?), but I do think she might be overdoing the Botox and fillers a bit. Not keen on the brown hair, either. Pretty dress, though – love the colour.
Next up, Natalie Cassidy (ex soap actress) attending an event to celebrate curvaceous women:
Oh dear. I actually feel a bit mean writing this, because she’s had her fair share of misery this year, breaking up with her partner after he attacked her in front of their daughter, but seriously, what was she thinking wearing this ghastly dress?
Now I haven’t watched X Factor at all this year (and haven’t missed it a bit), so I don’t know much about the contestants, but I was rather taken aback by this outfit worn by one of the rejected contestants, Kitty, to perform in a shopping centre last week:
A startling, and rather brave, choice, particularly when you are sharing the stage with somebody who has a figure like the dancer behind her in the pic.
And it gets worse … look at the back!
Another contestant, Misha B, was recently seen out and about in this:
Very, er, unusual.
Let’s move on again, and look at a couple of soap actresses:
Helen Flanagan, aka Rosie Webster from Coronation St, went out for an evening wearing this dress.
Or perhaps I should say ‘nearly wearing’ to be more accurate. Good Lord. It’s actually a shame, because it’s quite a nice dress apart from not being big enough to cover her chest.
And Kym Marsh showed us how not to dress when going out with your teenage daughter.
Kym, you’ve got ‘trying too hard’ written all over you.
Anyway, I suppose we should end on a positive note, so here’s a dress which really caught my eye recently …
Kate Beckinsale has featured several times in my Frock It posts recently (quite often in white), and once again, I love this unusual white lace dress. Tasteful and elegant.
Well, that wraps up this Frock It, but I’m sure there’ll be plenty more fashion faux-pas for me to comment on in the run up to Christmas, so expect another one soon!
