Taylor Swift, per usual, blends demure and sexy to cute effect. Is this raisin-hued damask the best of her looks? Not by a long shot, but she could still give most of her age group a master-class in the art of the red carpet.

Faith Hill opts for tie-dye; Tim, the douche-neck. Have I mentioned my prognostication that the American Apparel "Le New Big Tee" will be the douche-neck 2010? You saw it here first.

I like Carrie's new song, "Undo It," but she should undo her stylist.
