Anna Kendrick goes for rich, deconstructed romance.


Westwood-Worthy Clothes!S Christina Hendricks, a woman who never "downplays," "minimizes," "draws attention from" or does any of the things we're "supposed" to do to breasts — once they're suitably perky and big, that is, because too small is also in need of "push-ups" and miracles. (No, we can't win.) For that, I salute her. Not least because the jacket makes me feel like I'm one of Sir Walter Raleigh's deputies.

Westwood-Worthy Clothes!SMalin Akerman's drapery is interesting, but still stays unfussy.

Westwood-Worthy Clothes!SOnly anarchists are pretty? What about Direct Democrats? Or pure Libertarians? Well, Lupe Fiasco has started a conversation, which is, I suppose, the point of art.

Westwood-Worthy Clothes!SThere is nothing like a Dame — especially one doing subversive things with traditional openwork.

Westwood-Worthy Clothes!SMischa Barton, in great form in this easy, chic take on metallics.

Westwood-Worthy Clothes!SY'know, I don't know why Marilyn comes to these things if he can't have a good attitude. What a downer!

Westwood-Worthy Clothes!SLook. No one's saying it's easy being thrown together with an ex, but Dita's pulling it off with poise! Not to mention, dramatic chic.

Westwood-Worthy Clothes!SNot who I really expected to see — despite Dame Viv's role in SATC I, — but Kristin Davis looks stunning in this gently edgy cerulean!

Westwood-Worthy Clothes!SThere's "toughening up" with an unexpected shoe. Then there's "grabbing what's by the door." We've all done it. Only Lady Victoria Hervey can say which this was.

Westwood-Worthy Clothes!SI can't imagine this is a huge seller, but I kind of adore it. It's like Laura Ashley goes wild.
