Courtney Love

Ms. Love has graced these pages quite often, but that doesn't make the crime any less serious.

I can see where she was going with this. Kind of. But ruffles should be smooth, even, and structured to avoid looking like last Christmas's wrapping paper. I guess Courtney must have missed that memo. The positive?'s shiny?

Ginnifer Goodwin

I apologize for the lack of posting recently; apparently, all of my worst offenders teamed up and resolved to ruin me by not wearing anything overly hideous this week! Things were further complicated because I actually LOVED Nicole Kidman's wacky dresses, and Natalie Portman's crazy sheer blue thing. Which resulted in a bit of a posting crisis.

This, by the way, isn't exactly hideous either.

I KNOW floral dresses are big this spring, and that pairing the pretty pattern with black accents is very edgy. But I just can't get over this pattern. Perhaps it's because my great-grandmother had 2 couches in that pattern, with matching seat covers AND curtains. (She was big on florals). Florals can be very sweet and cute, but this dark magenta/green/black combination screams "nursing-home couture" to me. I won't rule out the possibility that I'm a little biased here. It really isn't Ginnifer's fault. Her hair is fantastic- why can't I get MINE to do that? - and the shoes are plain but nice. I'm sure many of my readers will love this outfit, so I'm not exactly sending her to fashion prison. Yet.

Grammy Awards Terror: Cher

Now, of course, Cher has committed too many fashion crimes to count in her time. But that doesn't mean she can't try to outdo herself!

And she almost succeeds! The bodice and sleeves appear to be slowly rotting off of her body, while the skirt looks a lot like one of those huge sheets people buy to cover their cars. All of this, paired with a very nice, yet terribly incongruous pair of leather boots and awful, ratted hair. Bravo, Cher! You've done it again.
