Padma Lakshmi vs.Jacquetta Wheeler in Temperley London

Lady Padma rules the court! I’m not so fond of the floaty empire-waist trend; it makes most pin thin A-listers look like they’ve ballooned twice their size. But something about this punchy orange Temperley London frock really pops against the Top Chef host’s bronzed skin. Unfortunately, it looks washed out against supermodel Jacquetta Wheeler’s pale skin. And those black tights? They have just got to go!! 

Want to pull off the look? You can get the exact same Roman-esque orange silk Temperley London dress at Net-a-Porter complete with pleat details and a gold-tone coin embellished neckline.

Beyonce Knowles vs.Whitney Port in Catherine Malandrino

Winner: Whoopee for Whitney! We hate to see the balloon-y dress AGAIN but it looks worse on Beyonce because she’s already a curvaceous chica. Although Beyonce’s known for her gorgeous gams, it’s Whitney’s long limbs that really punch up the fuschia Catherine Malandrino dress and her lanky frame can pull of that billowy look.

Look! We found it! The coveted Circle Embroidery Fuschia Blouson dress by Catherine Malandrino!

Kelly Ripa vs.Christine Lakin in L.A.M.B.

Winner: We always loved Kelly, but actress Christine Lakin takes the cake.  Plaid is rad and this Fall, it’s making a comeback! Guess Gwen Stefani knew that when she added this red tartan cap-sleeve number to her collection for L.A.M.B. But which celeb really does it up Gwen-style? Kelly’s clutch and peep toes are nice, but she needs a few more accessories to wow us. Looks like Christine’s pretty necklace and bright red lips spice up her fitted frock. So Gwen chic!

We’d love to show you where to buy this peppery plaid piece but its already sold out in stores!
