The Good:

Olivia Wilde played lezebel on The OC and now she's on House. I think she is super pretty and I like this sleek, city-chic outfit.

China Chow keeps it simple and showcases her shoulders. Some people just don't need lots of jewelry.

This column makes Joy Bryant look like a tigergoddess.

Beth Ditto from The Gossip! She's a performer. She's on stage. Therefore this is good. At a premiere or a quiet brunch, a red sequin jumpsuit would not be appropriate.

I don't really know who Rose Apodaca is (Google says a fashion journalist?) but I like that she's got the ovaries to rock something weird and cool that no one else is wearing.

I think Eve's dress is good! Flowy, goddess-y. Let's look at it from another angle.

Yeah, it's good.

Well you can't wear this to work at a law firm or even to a restaurant where you might have a pasta dinner, but this is Janet Jackson and this is a work of art and therefore it is good. As long as she doesn't try to light any candles.

We interrupt this post to bring you a picture of Vidal Sasson, who is 80 years old and still a handsome devil.

I'm not feeling the pattern of the dress Tracee Ross is wearing.

Rebecca De Mornay's tube dress and doo-doo brown pashmina seem sad.

Ioan Gruffudd is ridiculously hot (did you see him in King Arthur with Clive Owen?) but this outfit rubs me the wrong way. I mean, those are jeans, right? With scuffed round-toe boots? Sigh.

Animal print made Joy Bryant glow; it just makes Lady Victoria Hervey look washed out.

Cat Deely is wearing the same dress Natalie my best friend from 7th grade wore to our semi-formal in the '80s, and not in a good way.

The Ugly:

Green is good, but this dress is drowning Kelly Lynch.

Ew. Ew. Ew. Jay Manuel. Of America's Next Top Model. How can someone who supposedly has good taste pic something so awful? Maybe cream and ivory are in his "palette" but matching your jacket and pants to your hair is just odd.

DISCUSSION

@emmablack:

That is equal parts funny and pathetic. Funny if it is just cause you are cute and married or not, actors are particularly desperate for attention so he'd want you to flirt with him regardless. Pathetic if it was just "Nobody has recognized me in a while, time to turn it up!" desperation.

Also, I do not understand why, on animal print that is already divided with black lace, Lady Victoria Harvey has to add a skinny little gold belt. First cause gold + black lace + leopard = whorehouse special, but also cause the black lace part is huge. A skinny belt makes even less sense than a large one would.
