Kirsen Bell, does nothing for her. ‘When dresses that are too arty happen to teeny people with bad hairdressers : The Movie.’

Kristen Stewart - Looking like she’d BATE the head offa ya. Rank dress.

Rachel Bilson - CUTE! I love her hair too. I just love her in general. 

Zoe Kravitz - I like it! I din’t love it for the MEt ball - but I do like it. Also she’s ridiculously stunning and that makes me insecure - so I will say I don’t like her earrings. There..I feel better.

Taylor Swift - this would be a BEAUTIFUL wedding dress in one of those ‘we’re so cool!’ vintage style weddings.

Renee Zellwegger - honestly, I think I’ve gone blind. My eyes are dripping tears of horrified blood.

Janet Jackson - Wow! Her boobs are incredible! Hate the one sleeved thing. Stoopid.

Maggie Gylenhaal - anyone else losing the will to live?!? Jebus. What IS this?! However, she is in one of my new favourite movies - Crazy Heart - so she may live. 

Jessica Biel - yep, grand, very nice, whatever. 

Mila Kunis - I almost can’t take this anymore.

Malin Ackerman - Okay. I’m done. 

Rate, or probably mostly slate, away…

Donatella Versace - if Mr. Sheen made ballgowns.

Marion Cotillard - I woulf love this if it was strapless- ‘dislike’ the sleeves/neck.

Leighton Meester - I LOVE it, although it looks a bit like she got a vintage dress dirty.

Nicole Richie - I would love this more without all the hair all over it.

Sarah Jessica Parker - I love the dress, but the hair is not working for me, too straight at the top or somefink.

Eva Longoria - STUPID length. (I am so going to say that to an unfortunate boy some night.)

Jessica Alba - yeah. Pretty. Whatever.

Clare Danes - curtainy Lady Guinevere dress and wrong hair situation.

Vote away and let us know who you love or loathe! What, that sounds bossy? People, we did not spend SIX hours doing these posts just for you to LOOK at them - get talking so our blog looks popular and brilliant! ; )

Anne Hathaway - looking like an odd pointy fairy godmother. Beautiful dress - on someone else.

Chanel Iman - Sweet mother of baby jebus - I NEED this in my life. 

Demi Moore - Secret of eternal youth : wrap in tinfoil, bake for four years. 

Jennifer Lopez - stealing SJP’s Oscar gown 2009? You can’t deny she looks awfully pretty. 

Allesandro Ambrosio - had a baby recently. Herself and Gisele can go find a field together, stand in the middle of it, hitch a ride on a passing tractor and f*ck right off.

 

Kate Hudson AKA (L) - I like her legs well enough, but would prefer the dress without the slit. Also, rumours abound she’s had the boobies done…what do you think?

Self explanatory really, which people always say before going on to explain it anyway - blues and navies/navys (?!) at the Met Ball - rate away and share your thoughts in the comments section!

hearts! 

(B)

Sienna Miller - absolutely bloody stunn-eeeng. She’s far to good for that cheating tosser.

Christina Hendricks - I could think of 57 different dresses that would show off this shazam figure, and a jay cloth with mop head shoulder accessory would not be one of them.

Abbie Cornish - I….I don’t know where to begin. I literally want to use this dress as the rag with which to mop up a homeless man’s cold vomit from a dog sh*t infested pavement. 

Emmy Rossum - looking very pleased with herself. She’s obviously just been awarded the QUEEN OF THE GIANT BUTTONS award, which is very prestigious and magickel.

Blake Lively - Lovely colour. Love the skirt part. Hate the infectious looking bit on the shoulder. 

Marishka Hargitay - Fabric is slowly eating her alive. She looks stunning in the face though. Jewellery is a bit lucky bag.

Oprah Winfrey - what the HELL is going on with all these ruffley dresses? It’s REALLY p*ssing me off. Matching your hair to your dress is also not amazing. Not amazing at all.

Tina Fey - Basically - this is what swanky female plumbers wear to work. Shocking. SHOCKING. Couldn’t hate this any more if it was eating with it’s mouth open.

Quelle Surprise! Lots of black at the Met Ball - so we mixed it in with the white. And the black and white. Consider it a Michael Jackson post. 

Get to rating and slating! Hearts!

(B)

Alexa Chung  - I love it. Steampunk-ed out of it… 

Diane Kruger - Pacey looks hot. Diane, well I can see where she was going with this but some darts and panels would have helped a LOT…

Gisele - Ah just f*ck off. Cowbag.

Gwen Stefani - Me no likey - it’s like Hallowe’en cobwebs over a H&M vest.

Bar Rafaeli - She looks like this really mean girl that was in my primary school, who was a bully. That justifies me saying I hate this. Right?

Emma Watson - Looks like she made it from toilet paper. 

Zoe Saldana - Muy eleganto. Boring hair. 

Elizabeth Banks - who is clearly the lovechild of Chelsea Handler and Abbey Clancy. Snakeskin and feather in May? Please.

Emma Roberts - very sweet looking kid. Terrible neckline and dull hair though…

Lots of colours at this year’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit - vote on your favourite and tell us who you love and loathe in the comments section - don’t be shy!

(B)

Kate Bosworth - Flawless. GIVE IT TO ME!

Thandie Newton - Beautiful colours, stunning. But the actual pattern and shape makes me think of that Heatons bedspread again…

January Jones - F*cking demented looking. And not in a good way.

Carey Mulligan - wow aren’t you cute. That’s the idea right?!? Meh.

Camille Belle - unfortunate boob situation and the gathering makes her hps look wide - when she is quite clearly a skelf.

Rachel Weisz - give this too me in a diifferent fabric with a better fit around the skirt and I’ll be happy enough. 

Jessica Stam - interesting boob situation - looking bigger and rounder. Hmmmm. Love the shape of the dress, but hate the strap part around the neck. Love the hair style but far too yellow. Beautiful eye makeup.

Rosario Dawson - ill fitting, looks like cheap Tesco underwear on the top, pretty colour with her skin, but no. Start those ruffles ON the waist, change the cup situation, make the ruffles bigger and more raggedy and just get a new dress basically.

Naomi Watts - took me ages to remember her name. She’s a bit meh. Adore the colour, hate the lipstick, the bow is a tad too big.

Ginger Kanye

Did anyone see this at the Oscars the other night? ‘Music By Prudence’ won Best Documentary Short, and the movie’s director Roger Ross Williams legged it on to the stage and starting delivering his thankee kindly speech. next thing a ginger in blue bounded on to the stage shouting away and totally took over the speech! DRAMZ!

It turns out that Elinor does have a producer credit on the film, so she did win the Oscar too. However, Roger claims she removed herself from the project a year ago because he refused to give her complete creative control. Elinor claims that the project was her little thing, and that she is the reason he was brought on board. LOVE IT!

Anyways, The Oscars only allowed one person to give a speech, Roger figured he should be the one since he’s the director. Elinor says she never agreed to this, so when ‘Music By Prudence’ was announced as the winner she ran up too - hence the Ginger Kanye moment!

Hurrah! It’s here! Tim Burton’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ officially premierised last night! Who need LSD when you can watch a Tim Burton fil-im, and when you need a fix of Johnny Depp - again with the Tim Burton fil-im!

Above is Helena Bonham Carter, who plays the Wicked Queen of Hearts, and is also the missus to Tim Burton, and mother of their two bambinos Billy Ray Burton and Nell Burton.  (I just love their full names, hence the typing them all out in full malarkey.)

I know Helena’s style is verging on the scary drunken homeless woman who shouts obscenities at you in front of your new boyfriend, but I heart her. Who’s with me?

Here are a few more, rate or slate to your heart’s content!

(B)

Above : Mia Wasikowska, who plays Alice, and Anne Hathaway who plays the White Queen. 

Mia :For me, the waistline on Mia’s dress should have been slightly higher, with a little less of the fullness in the underskirt on the hip area. It fine, but I think I would have preferred if the top contrasting lace had run all the way through, rather than becoming so dark on the bottom. Am I making sense today? I think not. 

Anne : Oh just f*ck off. 

Barbara Windsor, who plays the Dormouse, and Camilla.

Barbara - I’m sorry…I just can’t, it’s not me, it’s you.

Camilla - dress designed by Vivienne Westwood, I think it’s beautiful.

 Eleanor Tomlinson, who plays one of the Chataway sisters, Avril Lavigne who sang the theme tune and the Mad Hatter - Johnny Depp. 

Eleanor - I like the cut of the dress, but velvet? 

Avril - Take Anne Hathaway with you on your f*cking off home escapade. 

Johnny - why bother wearing clothes Johnny?!? - they won’t deter me… I have a scissors.

There’s been so many awards given out in the last few days, I find it hard to brush my hair without expecting a round of applause afterwards. I now expect a trophy for every cup of tea I make. But then, I do make pretty savage tea! First up was the Meteor Music Awards on Friday night in Dublin’s fair city. Don’t panic, there was hardly anyone from Fair City there. We’ll be back with our vidjo of Orange Carpet goings on and a few pics of us, because we’re crazy vain like that, shortly but until then here’s some highlights!

(Above: Florence ‘the ride’ Welch)

Michelle Heaton…just HAPPENED to have to make a call with her blinged out phone!

Sinitta doing her ‘macho’ thing…really should get a new thing. Una Healy of ‘Saturdays’ fame…fell off the Christmas tree.

Dizee Rascal and Paulo Nuttini…I’d take either if you’re offering.

Virginia Macari…scarleh’…….and Westlife.

Oh by the way…did we mention…..

YEAH WE DID!!!

(L)

O to the M to the FG…guess who’s gonna be on the Orange Carpet tonight at The Meteor Music Awards?? Yeah we did!!! Now, when I say ON, I mean we’ll be the ones sticking a mic in people’s faces asking them all sorts of fascinating questions that will make them want to skip the event and stay there and chat to us…natch! It’s set to be all star-studded ‘n’ stuff…we’re talking Dizzee, Florence, Snow……Patrol (yeah that doesn’t work when you shorten it).

 We’ll also be on Spin 103.8 on Saturday telling the lovely Michelle Beaty on Plan B about the goings-on and what everyone was wearing on their persons. So tune in for that from about midday onwards.

YAY!

 Amber Rose was her usual shy, retiring, wallflower self at Paris Fashion Week again this year. Sure you’d hardly even notice she was there at all, at all.

 Remember the ‘penis outfit’? This is obviously the safe sex version. Lately it seems hoods are the new….eh….not having a hood.

And as much as Amber seems to have a penchant for wearing underwear and not much else..her fella can’t seem to get to grips with it at all…….START WEARING SOCKS, YOU CLOWN!

Of course she threw in a bit of an oul’ ‘I heart fur’ statement for good measure. It’s so wrong, I need it.

Yeah, it’s a day late, but a little teasing before hitting you with the shazam of Drew Barrymore was in order. She has come from a nothing style non-thingy (technical term) to be my new style icon. The hair, the makeup, the dress *sigh*… the only thing I think I’d change would be to add just one accessory. Like, one bracelet or ring. That’s it. Or a bit of something in the hair. Other than that - perfection. Here are the rest, accompanied by a nice poll for you to click on. 

(B)

Christina Applegate - yes, all very eleganto y prettiful, but the colour is just a little ‘oh I’ve put my white dress in the wash with a blue teatowel!’ for me….

Betty White - I am humbled before her majesty of all majesties, Queen Elisabetto di Blanco. Elegance, finesse, sparkliness, all round legend-ness. I want her to be my granny. Seriously, ship her over. She’s getting to an age where she’ll just accept it. LOVE HER!!!

Kristin from E!- Table for 6 love, make it snappy, and don’t be mean with the sweet and sour sauce. 

Lea from Glee - GLLEEEE! We say that in a squeaky voice in our house. Anyways, lovely colour, hate the whole shoulder thing, makes her look broader than she is, which is not broad at all. 

Meryl Streep - F*cking right you should be wearing sunglasses, Stephanie Wonder. 

Jenna Fisher - Lovely, for a bridesmaid.

Gabourey Sidibe - Come on now, there is no excuse for the shocking cut on this dress. Those sleeves are entirely unflattering, the neckline is ridiculous, the ruching is shameful. Short-ay-ay, give me a job. You could look much more beautifulo than this. 

Julianna Marguiles - Ah a demented neckline. How avantay-garday. Pass me the scissors.

What do you think peoples?

Above is Mariah Carey.… What a bag! What finesse, what class! What the hell is she doing with all that money and I have YET, in my entire time looking at her, to say - wow, I need what she is wearing. 

Jessalyn Gilzig - Your name is weird. Change it. The dress is too low, and there are too many wrappy bits. Change it. Like, in the future, as in, don’t wear it again, which you probably wouldn’t anyway, so yeah, eh…do as your told. My house, my rules. Wait til your father gets home. Fetch me the wooden spoon. Dear god I can’t stop typing.

Okay…Julie Benz - It looks like your lady garden is trying to eat you because it’s hyper after drinking too much ribena. Pretty dress, too much fabric.

Marishka Hargitay - Frightening shade of pink. She’s too nice for this dress to happen to her…. I would love to see Tyra Banks wear it instead. Mwa ha.

Tina Fey -I couldn’t hate this dress anymore even if it was wearing pajamas and saying ‘totes omg!’ while expertly backcombing it’s squeaky clean hair and buying Dior fondation in the wrong shade with it’s mother’s credit card. I hate this dress. Hate.

Sofia Vergara - epic body covered in bedspread from Heatons alert!

Christina Hendricks - epic body covered in Debs Dress from the Presentation Convent alert!
