Celebrity Style. Statement-Making Dresses.

February 9, 2009 • Celebrity Style

Look at me! Look at me! That's exactly what the stars have been saying lately as they parade around in glittery, colorful dresses with fancy draping and interesting textures. No, we're not talking about Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, who have both been recently photographed in uber-bright neon gowns around inauguration time.  And we're not talking about Eva Longoria, who likes to shake things like a flamenco dancer, always showing up in ruffles and bright pastels. 

These ladies are begging us to gawk at them in their own way–and they're doing a mighty fine job oozing style and grabbing our gaze at the same time.


Katie Holmes look something like a slicked back Audrey Hepburn meets Spanish senorita in this sparkly statement-making Christian Lacroix Haute Couture gown. 


Fergie is a pure flapper from the '20s and this print dress with bow and frayed ends is divine. Love the asymmetrical bottom, love the color and texture, the way it fits her, the hanging jewelry, her 20s style hairdo and those T-straps! Bravo!


Pretty Camille Belle–already a fashion superstar in her own right. You'll never see her in something that's not put together. She could be the next Victoria Beckham…with even more class. This Alexander McQueen dress is beautiful, mod, and youthful–just for her. Love the print.


Jennifer Connolly rocks the Balenciaga! She always does. Green is her color. She's so glam in this sparkly dress and those shoes are to die for.


Not sure how much I love this Camilla & Marc frock on Ginnifer Goodwin but I love the deep purple and it is statement-making.  Kudos to her for usually dapper Goodwin taking a risk.


A bohemian Nicole Richie always makes a fashion statement as she does here in her red and white Issa dress with gold headband and nude colored peep-toes.


A new star on the scene, Slumdog Millionaire star Frieda Pinto is always showing she can has style like the veterans. This Zac Posen dress might not be as loud as some of the stars, but it sure is a great statement piece.


Claire Danes, often seen in solid colors and plain makeup, proves she too can make a statement. Take out her green print Zac Posen and her smoky eye makeup!
