Burberry Plaid was conspicuously absent from Burberry Day at The New York Palace Hotel, and we never thought we'd say this, but we missed it. You see, it would've been a beacon of stability in the world of wrinkles and experiments that Claire, Hugh, Molly, Rose, and Blake brought instead.
The Good: Does this couple ever just stay in and watch TV? They have become such red-carpet fixtures! That said, Claire just gets better and better: she's got her formula of demure, restrained elegance down to a T.
The Good: Blake Lively has a natural talent for looking fun and unfussy.
The Good: Is there a touch of the Dune about Helena Christensen's getup? Darn tootin'.
Misshape: Here's the thing about Leigh Lezark. Her clothes are actually totally uninspired. But the rub is, she does work 'em. And the lady looks good!
The Bad: There's plenty to like about Vanessa Fitzgerald's individual components. But in sum the disharmony of the aesthetic has Ruskin rolling in his grave. Yes, Ruskin reads Jezebel.
The Problematic: Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is obviously stunning, and has the world's closet at her command - but even she can't triumph over the inherent awkwardness of her wearable cootie-catcher.
What Say You? Molly Sims embraces her earthier side. Do you?
In principle, loving the idea of Rose McGowan going all Betty Catroux. But the proportions give me pause. What Say You?
The Ugly: Looking at Terence Koh, can you wonder that this category secretly means "the most triumphant?"
