WTF Was She Thinking? The Week That Was In Bad Celebrity Style.

Famke Janssen at a screening of 'Inglorious Bastards' in New York

Comment: Don't get me wrong here; I would kill for long, lean legs like Famke and she has every right to show them off whenever possible. But being the typically elegant, distinguished actress that she is, one would imagine the shock when I saw she had fallen onto the 'no pants' bandwagon. Its not like we love the fact that Rihanna and Lady Gaga prance around sans bottoms but for them, we've come to accept it. I just hate to see the trend leaking into the minds of other well-to-do stars, especially at a movie screening! The beach? Maybe, OK. But don't grab a fedora and a teeny bag and call that an acceptable ensemble away from the shore. Where's the rest of it?!! 

She's Thinking: I think I feel a draft.

Thom Brown at 'The September Issue' premiere in New York

Comment: The premiere of 'The September Issue' was ripe with fashion industry talent and that means several eye-catching looks. Many designers present did well with the stifling heat of the evening, like Tory Burch and Vera Wang who both donned dresses above the knee, Donna Karan clad in her signature jumpsuit, and even Marc Jacobs who wore his now famous wrap-type "skirt". But Thom Brown seemed determined to stand out from the fashion-forward crowd in J.Crew-esque cut offs (!), complete with dangling threads, and dress shoes. Even the shorts in his signature line of suits, though also unorthodox, are hemmed! I guess when the New York summer heat strikes, one must be resourceful at all costs.

He's Thinking: How do you like my critters?

Aubrey O' Day at Music Mogul's First Music Competition in West Hollywood

Comment: The young singer is almost a do with this look, but I can't seem to get past the, um, superfluous nature of her bosom spilling out the top of the dress. Is that really necessary? O' Day was seemingly invited as a special guest and role model to this competition, and what kind of message does that send to the other prospective talent? Work hard and you'll get these?? She is so cute without the extra suction that I wish she would have just gave up the good fight and bought a bigger size. Or a smaller one, depending on what we're referring to.

Shes Thinking: My voice is actually my third best asset.

Michelle Monaghan at the Cinema Society screening of 'Inglorious Bastards' in New York

Comment: With all the various takes on shoulders these days, its either a case of unrequited love or uncompromising hate. Neither of these emotions can really be called upon for Monaghan's getup, though it is a little unsettling how striking of a resemblance she bears to any number of Star Trek crews. The severity of her shoulders, coupled with her pointy hair and bandage shoes look almost other worldy. Or maybe it be called ultra modern, and we're just not ready for that yet.

She's Thinking: Live long and prosper!

Sarah Wilson at Spring/Summer 09/10 Collection Show in Sydney
Comment: Here's another example of a shoulder gone wrong but rather than channeling the future, this version seems a throwback to the 80's; prom that is. Wilson could have left her sleek LBD alone, but had to gussy it up with puffy, patent leather-looking shrug that immediately turns her into a Cyndi Lauper prom queen. All she needs is a side pony and high tops. The rest of her look is chic which makes me wonder— can't we just continue on the path toward modernity without having to resurrect such a horrid fashion past to get there??

She's Thinking: I feel like Jem and the Holograms!

    Ah those are pretty poor. What was Michelle M. thinking with those shoes? Fugly!

    Famke is wearing a shirt and a mini skirt- not some oversized tea-shirt (as i’ve seen other sites suggest)
