Allure magazine is the most confusing of all the American ladymags. Is it a beauty magazine? A fashion magazine? Both? Do people really still buy it? But what's even more confusing was the guest list for last night's NYC event celebrating the "Most Alluring Bodies": those of Hilary Duff, Katherine McPhee, Paula Patton, Carey Lowell, Olivia Palmero and Rachel Zoe. All these ladies and a few more (like Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler!) in the Good, the Bad, & the Ugly, after the jump.

The Good:

It's no secret that I'm gaga for potter Jonathan Adler and his husband, Barneys New York creative director Simon Doonan. Even though I would have never have guessed that Adler is the Big Pony type.

I have no idea what Katharine McPhee has done since American Idol, but she looks great here.


Allure editor-in-chief Linda Wells looks smart in basic black.


Sorry, but I am in love with Olivia Palmero's shoes.

Paula Patton? Pretty!

The Bad:


Andrew Saffir and Valesa Guerrand Hermes definitely have the best names of anyone at the event, but I just can't get behind a woman who lets a man wear a lemon sports coat.

Dear: Carey Lowell: Has Richard done something to convince you that you should wear frumpy old lady clothes?

The Ugly:


Is it just me, or is there something bad wrong with the way the top of Hilary Duff's dress is cut?


Who is Nikki Anders and why is she wearing this? Best not wear a silver trash bag out on the town.

Same goes for Rachel Zoe.
