Kristen Bell

I think Kristen is very cute and all, but what's wrong with this picture?

I respectfully must comment that I believe Ms. Bell has plenty of financial resources. Enough to, say, buy another pair of jeans. That aren't falling apart. Because I refuse to believe the impossible, the improbable, the terrible: that ripped jeans are returning as the next big trend. No! It can never happen...I would go into seclusion. I'd join a monastery. Anything to avoid the ripped terror.

Ashlee Simpson and Fashion Poirot News!

Let's start with the exciting news: I want you, my readers, to scroll through the Fashion Poirot archives and nominate what you thought was the worst outfit I ever posted in the comments section of this post. Then, we'll have a special post and a poll to decide the worst outfit of the year, (or, since September, since that's when F.P. started) and the official winner- or, rather, loser- will be announced on Dec. 31!

Now, to business: Ashlee Simpson.

I'll be honest: I don't really get all of the fuss about her. Her style isn't particularly unique, her voice isn't spectacular, and she's sort of generically good-looking. Perhaps I'm a little confused as to why anyone would choose to have cosmetic surgery at such a young age.

Anyway, this outfit is bearable. It isn't horrible. It doesn't burn my eyes. But it does raise a couple of questions. I really have no problem with the jeans, tank, and boots, though I wish she'd gone for a little for color. But arm warmers? No. They're very hard to pull off, and Ashlee just doesn't fit the bill. I think the little scarf could look amazing- with a similarly high-fashion outfit. As it is, she just looks as though she put it on as an afterthought. But it totally contradicts the punk-like, monochromatic, rebellious tank/jeans/boots combo.

Ah well. Happy holidays, everyone! And don't forget those nominees!

Paris Hilton

Hey, Paris! Just 3 things I wanted to tell you...

Shoulder pads belong in the 80's and NOWHERE else, you need to cut your hair, and Dorothy wants her slippers back.

Katie Holmes

I have to say it: I love Mrs. Cruise's new bangs. I might be in the minority. But they are just plain cool.

However, wearing a sheer shirt that gives us an up-close-and-personal look at your bra, like this:

Not so cool.

On the old Fashion Poirot, I once mentioned Rihanna's ballerina-gone-dominatrix concert outfit. I'd hoped that particular fashion disaster had been left in the past. Apparently not.

I just don't get it. Why? Why? God knows her songs aren't of the heavy-metal, ridiculously sexed-up kind- at least not all of them. Sexy is one thing, but this is way too much. At least she lost the tutu-like thing she had last time. I could handle the boots and arm warmers, but the corset/bra/hot pants/thing with all of the buckles and just plain disturbing.

And a pity, too, because off-stage, Rihanna dresses beautifully. So I can only assume that she has some wacko, deranged fashion consultant for concert wear only. A word of advice: FIRE HIM/HER IMMEDIATELY.
