Love It or Hate It: The Best and Worst Dressed at Comic-Con
Here are the fabulous, the drab and the “should have left that dress at home” celeb looks (we’re talking to you, Carey Mulligan) from Comic-Con!
This past weekend, comic book and science fiction lovers united with fashion fiends on the red carpet in San Diego for Comic-Con 2011. Four fun-filled days of comic books, science fiction movies, TV show, games, parties and more had the stars dazzling, but nothing topped the brightness of the season’s hottest designers on stars like Kate Beckinsale and Olivia Wilde at the premiere of one of the most anticipated summer blockbusters, Cowboys & Aliens.
Some of the most popular A-listers, including our favorite Bon Temps resident, Anna Paquin and Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev strutted fashionably throughout the weekend convention, but of course there were some that shone much brighter than the rest.
Here are the fabs, the drabs and “the should-have-never-been-worn” digs from Comic Con 2011.
We loved Ginni in He’s Just Not That Into You, but we are not at all into this dress from designer Roksanda Illinic. The vibrant color pops, but the large fuzz ball in-the-middle combined with the oversized sleeves gives Ginnifer’s petite frame the trash bag appeal (or window treatment, your choice), instead of the chic look she was aiming for.
Vampire lover, Kristen Stewart, must have thought overly casual was the new fierce when she appeared at Comic Con in this simple and boring outfit. Of course, all celebs deserve a break from their usual red carpet looks, but Kristen, at the last few events we’ve seen her at has looked chic. This is a giant step backwards. The Twilight star is the epitome of the “I just rolled out of the bed” look.
Everything that can be wrong about this Roksanda Illinic original is. Let’s start with the design that I can’t seem to grasp because it’s too awkward and looks like it was three outfits rolled into one hot mess. The monokini-style midsection bares Carey Mulligan’s stomach yet connects to a full skirt. Is the top a series of crop tops that grew? A monokini that doesn’t like water? Three tank tops separated at birth? And the skirt! This one is so full; it looks like it should be part of a school uniform from way back when. This just hurts my head.
First, she loses her one big role as Shia LaBeouf’s girlfriend in the Transformers franchise (the poster she’s standing in front of, honey, the movie tanked) and now, Megan Fox is a bigger disaster on the red carpet. What is the world coming to? I get the concept Megan! Pair a dressy Gucci blazer with a plain tee, jeans and dressy heels to make a red carpet explosion. The only problem with this look is that the bomb never donated. It just fell flat. Um, kinda like your next role.
We had no clue that velvet curtains from those old mansions that reek of mothballs could be transformed into a Dolce & Gabbana evening gown. I am sweating from just looking at it. Cowboy & Aliens star Olivia Wilde with her raccoon eyes and period black dress looks more like an extra from a b-movie vampire flick than a star. If she toned down the eyes, lost the sleeves and napkin bodice, she could look like a winner.
Most fabulous dressed next!
