Fash Fave/Fail Friday

FASH FAVE - Rachel Zoe


Wednesday evening the ultra fabulous Rachel Zoe arrived to the Burberry body event hosted by Christopher Bailey and Rosey Huntington-Whiteley looking absolutely bananas. The style guru appropriately rocked a striking Burberry design and as Rachel would say, I'm DYING over this color... obvi. There's simply no way one could ignore a statement trench like this. It's perfection in its loudest form. How can you not feel powerful in something this major? The talented designer paired the slim fit trench with a Burberry clutch, suede black boots, and her favorite gold cocktail ring. Am I the only one who thinks Rachel's "post baby" style is even better than before? She looks incredible, which is why it was a no brainier when it came to picking this week's Fash Fave. Keep up the amazing fashion Rach and while you're at it, please have a baby girl. It would be a serious fashion travesty if there wasn't a mini Zoe to leave your Elizabeth Taylor worthy wardrobe and jewelry to! 

FASH FAIL - Sarah Jessica Parker


Ok SJP fans, calm down. I'm fully aware I'm probably breaking several fashion laws by choosing the fabulous style maven as my Fash Fail, but hear me out. Monday evening Sarah Jessica Parker arrived at the premiere of "Tower Heist" at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York in an ill fitting Narciso Rodriguez color blocking dress that not only managed to be unflattering on the perfectly toned star, but also extremely underwhelming. It's not that the dress is horrible, I'm sure it would be adorable on a small child, like Suri Cruise, but on SJP... it's just not working. I'm not sure if this was just a failed attempt at a blueberry and chocolate candy corn costume or if Sarah's trying to be low key in support of her hubby's new film. Either way, the messy side bun is never red carpet acceptable. Was her transportation of choice a motorcycle? Sure, I adore her Manolo Blahnick's but not even they can save this baggy red carpet mishap. Bottom line, it's not age appropriate nor Sarah Jessica Parker appropriate, which is why I simply had to choose SJP as my fail this week. From the insanely fabulous trench to the disappointing icon let down, what you do you think of this week's Fave and Fail?

  2. Haha. Your fail's always make me laugh. What a disappointment with Sarah. She almost always looks great, but I'm not liking this as well.

  6. The trench suits her perfectly !

    And about SJP, I agree that this is not a good red carpet look. But I think the dress itself could be nice on someone with more curves

  8. I never thought I'd critisize SJP, but... Unfortunately, that dress reminds me of curtains. And no, it's not total disaster, it just isn't that flattering.

    Loving Rachel Zoe's coat, though, it's simply adorable :)

    Have great weekend, girl! xoxo

  13. I love Rachel's coat BUT I don't think it was appropriate for the event. I feel like everyone else was wearing beautiful dresses and here she is in a trench coat buttoned all the way up in like 75 degree weather. I know she likes to be different but it just didn't hit the mark with me. Sorry!

  14. I am a major SJP fan & while I dont really care for this look on her, it makes me sad that she is a fail :(

  21. As much as I love SJP, I have to aree with your choice. The dress isn't bad but it just does not fit her well.

  27. Rachel looks bananas, but SJP on the other hand, needs to eat a couple hundred before this dress flatters her. Agree.

  28. Finally Sarah fails.

  29. I don't hate Sarah's dress but I would like it more on someone younger like you suggested.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Rachel's style really has gotten even better. I think it's cause her body just looks better in more things. This trench is stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  31. totally concur on SJP..its completely underwhelming and at this point she should know when something fits her! She's usually fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love SJP but this dress doesn't fit her frame at all

  37. 1) Rachel always look mah-jor! And I agree, she has a glow and edge to her post-baby that takes her over the top. Flawless really.

    2) SJP - love her too but this dress makes her look washed out. Also, the length and fit is all wrong for her.

    You nailed it girl! I'm voting you for a guest spot on Fashion Police ;-)
