Yay or nay?

OK, I get that black lace is a big trend and all that but I’m seriously worried about where this is going? What is up with the black lace and white silk combination? First we saw it on Katie Holmes – a (quite nice actually) lace top worn beneath a silk strapless jumpsuit arrangement, but apparently she ‘designed’ it herself so I guess we have to let that one go. But then Gwyneth in this Antonio Berardi affair. WTF! I understand that it’s witty and clever in its design but why black on white? It’s so ugly! Not to mention cheap. And nasty. Please, if any other designers (or God forbid, high street imitators) are ‘inspired’ by this, take a valium and have a rethink.

    So much money, yet so little style. These girls should get out more and start looking around. This is a real case of emperor’s new clothes.

    Yuck! It’s like watching monochrome barf.

  3. July Stars says:

    Poo … complete poo!

  4. WendyB says:

    I like Gwyneth’s dress. Fun and edgy.

  5. torberry says:

    Wow!! How can something so expensive be so nasty?! You wouldn’t find something this cheap looking in Primark!

  6. pretty face says:

    I actually like Ms. Paltrow’s dress – the corset effect is very flattering!

    The colours aren’t ideal I admit.

  7. Fashion Therapist says:

    This is a little reminiscent of the movie Alladin with the tapered puffed pants.

  8. Sal says:

    Hopefully, this is just an experimentation phase and will never hit the high street.

  9. Make Do Style says:

    Isn’t it awful and don’t you think KH looks a bit 50+ in her ensemble.
    Its a big nay from me for both.

    I like Gwynnie’s dress except for the pseudo male-appendage dangling from the middle. I understand that it’s the faux gusset, but still . . .

  11. karl's sweet child says:

    gwyneth’s okay but katie’s just YUCK!!

  12. Top Bird says:

    Yeah, I’m not liking either of them, too ‘messy’ and confusing.

  13. Anonymous says:

    that gwynie dress looks like a spatchcocked corset on a mortician’s slab. Beyone vile – cute boots though (Rupert Sanderson?)

  14. choubelle says:

    neigh neigh! Like a horse. They might as well toss all of their money into a trash can. It looks atrocious!


  15. enc says:

    I could let them both go, because I’ve seen worse, but I’m going to have to vote “Nay” on Gwyneth’s tennis peds.

  16. laia. says:

    I like Gwyneth’s dress, but not necessarily on her.

    Katie Holmes looks terrible in that jumpsuit. The pant leg gives me hives.

  17. the fashion assistant says:

    Not tooo keen on Mrs Cruise’s jumpsuit, a suit jacket over it would look ok.

  18. indianrosefashionista says:

    Hey! Just to let you know i’ve nominated your blog for an award x

  19. jenniferz says:

    NAY!!!! If someone non-celeb wore one of these get-ups they’d be laughed off of the street! Katie Holmes is rich enough to afford a stylist, unless Tom won’t allow it…

  20. Kelly says:

    I must say they are particulary awful- but in response we have done a more commercial style in a top. Alexa Chung has one too!


    No valium needed…

  21. Helen-LG says:

    oh dear… The dress is just awful, like you I see where they were going but don’t think it works. Maybe different colours or something.. I’m not really sure what needs changing but definitely something!

    I’d like to see the lace top Holmes wore in full, it looks nice. Not loving the jumpsuit though

  22. Sister Wolf says:

    Take Gwyneth away!!!

  23. Ivania says:

    yeah it looks like it came from the underwear section of a cheap market

  24. Sharron says:

    Katie Holmes outfit not only looks like she designed it herself, but also that she made it herself!

  25. susie_bubble says:

    I actually like Gwyneth’s dress…. need to see it upclose I guess to grasp to full on iffiness of it…
