Kelly Cutrone's Fashion Week critiques
Kelly Osbourne at Badgley Mischka
''No fashion police needed here. I love Kelly Osbourne. She is a fierce front-row fashion warrior. She is rad, radiant, and real! Plus, she is our first celebrity judge on episode 1 of America's Next Top Model.''
Toni Braxton at Chadwick Bell
''I personally think Toni is killing it this Fashion Week. She is beautiful, with amazing hair and makeup. Simple and chic. This shot of her sitting front row is a bit of a Debby Downer as she seems upset. Maybe it's Fashion Week Feet (deterioration of your feet through the wearing of $1,500 Christian Louboutin stilettos).
[Then] she seems happy the show is over. I love the dress, but the length is not helping her legs. They look short in this silhouette.''
Petra Nemcova (backstage) at Hilfiger Women's
''I mean, Petra is picture perfect. Who else can make yellow look so good? Yellow is a hard color to pull off and she is a fresh-faced fashion promise. Youthful chic — head to toe. Plus a two-tone stiletto loafer is so 'on point.' The gold bag is bringing the light, babe.''
Vera Farmiga (backstage) at Chadwick Bell
''Who doesn't love a little monochromatic muted chocolate with flesh-toned, open-toed shoes and unpolished feet in fall? Me! Also, I know there's a recession on, but can't we please have an extra left sleeve for the same price?''
Rebecca Romijn at Cynthia Rowley
''Rebecca is proof that black is the reigning color. In fact, black is all colors in one. Her hair is perfect and her skin — well you just know that is L.A. sun when you look at her. I am all for throwing a little color into your game, but I am afraid the bag and shoes are The Clash of the Titans.''
Krysten Ritter at Peter Som
''I mean, she truly reminds me of Isabella Rossellini. What happened here? Who decided a magenta electric pilgrim Flashdance waist-cinching belt should be paired with a jelly fish bottom military-esque khaki dress? No, no, no thank you!''
''This look is all over the place. There is nothing pulling it together. No accessories, hosiery, rings, jackets — nada. I mean, it is February in New York. She looks like a sales girl at Chanel.''
Allison Mosshart and Jamie Hince (the Kills) at Marc Jacobs
''I know lost and tossed punk indie rock is not for everyone in America, but for me, the Kills are Fashion Geek Killahs. Love with a capital L. Allison is ahead of her time with her Manic Panic ombre hair cascading over her jigsawed Mondrian color-blocked sweater. Jamie looks just chic and simultaneously disturbed enough to ask out for dinner. Winners.''
Maria Sharapova at Marc Jacobs
''Maria Sharapova needs to sharpen up her fashion eye. Horizontal stripes are pretty much a 'No Can Do' over 23. Paired with a black shoe and a white bag at Marc Jacobs? She looks like an usher at Belle's Castle in Disneyland.''
Camila Alves at Monique Lhuillier
''Why do you build me up buttercup? I am in love with her. This yellow, perfectly womanly and wonderful dress meets her golden skin like a perfect kiss. The black lace bodice reminds us that she is sultry and seductive. Her hair and demeanor are the perfect accessories. She looks like a modern day Sophia Loren in this picture.''
Nina Dobrev at Monique Lhuillier
''If Monique's sales do not increase 500 percent after Nina and Camila have worn her dresses, I will be disappointed. Royal blue is called 'royal' for a reason. This cut with the sheer embrace over the shoulders calls for a hot Italian man in a suit to come in and scoop her up for a night on the town.''
Aisha Tyler at Todashi Shoji
''I love it when Japanese designers do Camelot Moderne. This look is flawless. The slip leaves just a peak here and there of her beautiful skin. The belt not only accents the waist making her silhouette even more ladylike and luscious, it also makes it modern and magical. She's perfect.''
Kelly Rutherford at Cynthia Rowley
''Kelly's look makes me want to fly to Hong Kong and buy 60-year-old rare Chinese teas. It makes me want to take a junk boat on the Bay of Victoria. Love the play between her highlights and the gold foiling.''
Ahna O'Reilly at Reem Acra
''Free fashion tips from Kelly Cutrone, just something to think about: Green foil is better for gift wrap and holiday ornaments than for a dress in February. It's very Cirque du Soleil, but not in a good way.''
''She is working Fashion Week so hard. She is starting to look a lot like a Vogue editor — chic, effortless, beautiful. Shades of rose and Bordeaux, the tights are right too!! Yeah for, Ms. Renée.''
Gina Gershon (backstage) at Charlotte Ronson
''Gina is a New Yorker and she understands the game of Fashion Week. This look is universal front-row fashion at any fashion week. Tokyo? Check. London? Check. Paris? Check. Milan? Check. Moscow? Check. Berlin? Check. New York? Check. L.A.? No.
Look at her. Damn Gina! Put the Gi-na-sais-quoi, ooo la la, right in Charlotte Ronson's front row. I hope she is in love.''
Meredith Ostram at Nicole Miller
''Who decided to place a Warhol-inspired Campbell's Soup bag with an asymmetrical palette mini-dress? Who?''
