InStyle magazine hosted their annual Summer Soiree last week, which always brings out some of the most glamorous names in Hollywood, This year, however, there were a few mishaps that needed to be called out. From smaller faux pas like wrongly placed accessories to flat out unflattering outfits, these L.A. ladies need a few more tips before they can truly be considers "in style".

Comment: So…..not the best pick here for Christensen, since the fit is far from flattering. Its not that Christensen is big—its just any normal woman who has a single ounce of body fat is inadvertently showing off every angle of it in that fabric. With her curvy stature, I wouldn't have messed with it at all. And the shiny, rose-like color just makes her look washed out. Oh, and don't get me started on those shoes…..
She's Thinking: I can't breathe!
Comment: Lauren's long, svelte figure is perfect for this simple tee and skirt combination (tho she does blend in a little too much with the backdrop with that shade of green), so why did she feel the need to throw off the aesthetic of the outfit with an ugly, chunky belt? It serves no purpose. If anything, its too big and is sliding down her tiny waist. So why not just chuck it altogether? Her beaded earrings ans flip flops are enough accents to make the ensemble summery, yet elegant on their own.
She's Thinking: I'm still learning…..
Comment: Ok, so its not really necessary to dress all cute and summery at a party that has the word "Summer" in the title, we get that. But its L.A. and its August. So don't don a jacket and for goodness sake, infuse some color into your life! Fine' if she has to go with a black mini dress, then go ahead. But don't cover it all up with a dowdy, baggy jacket! Glam it out, show some skin and let that pearly pallor glow! So you're not tan, that's ok. Vampire skin is in, after all.
She's Thinking: I don't bite…..hard.
Comment: Aw, Cat is so cute with her radiant skin and big wattage smile. The only thing is, she's flirting with way too much look. Her three dimensional fabric "thingies" that are cascading down her dress provide a lot of volume on her petite little frame. Pair that with the two-tone color scheme and her mane of wavy hair and she looks like she's being swallowed up by some pink, white and blonde creature. Next time she should try the 'less is more' approach. Or at the very least, just pull back her hair.
She's Thinking: I do kinda feel like I'm drowning.
