Fash Fave / Fail Friday

Fash Fave - Giuliana Rancic
h

The eternally fabulous Giuliana Rancic and her ultra dapper man candy hubby hit the blue carpet at the Do Something Awards this week held at the Barker Harver venue in Santa Monica. G dazzled in a super chic structured Cengiz Abazoglu haute couture strapless mini dress from his summer 2012 collection. (Side note: I'm utterly obsessed with everything Cengiz creates. Dive into his designs hereThe E News co-host started her maternity leave earlier this week, so soak up the fabulousness, people. This will probably be the Rancic's last outing before baby Rancic enters the world. On Monday Bill tweeted "baby watch has officially begun," while he and Giuliana were on a plane to Denver to await the birth of their first child! To say I'm excited would be an understatement. You're in our preyers G and B. Can't wait to meet the little bundle of cuteness.  

Fash Fail - Ricki Lake
h

Well, well, well, what do we have here? While filming a segment for Extra, the always charming Ricki Lake was spotted wearing what can only be described as an overly ambitious blouse. I literally thought Ricki was on the set of Big Comfy Couch when I saw her neck breaking get-up. I'm sure she thought it was "fun" and "bold" but unfortunately for the adorable host, eccentric prints with this much personality died in the early 90's along with Big Comfy Couch's popularity. On the bright side, I totally love the boots, which would look killer in a pair of skinny jeans. As for the wrap top and hat, some things are simply unsalvageable. Take a note from the newest talk show host, Bethenny Frankel who has been killing it this summer with these amazing outfits! I can't wait for your show to start on September 10th, Ricki!

What do you think of this weeks fash fave and fail?

  1. Giuliana looks stunning as usual, no wonder you love her style so much! And as for the other lady, oh well, she didn't do so well.

    I want to thank you for being a fashion inspiration to me, if it weren't for you, I wouldn't have bought the beautiful bright pink blazer in the first place, let alone been brave enough to wear it. But because of you, I know how to style a gorgeous bold blazer, and I could incorporate one into my school outfits. Thank you, Anna, you're fantastic!

    Have a lovely weekend! xoxo ♥

  5. Giuliana looks stunning - I love everything about her dress! :-)

    But oh dear at Ricki - the blouse and the hat individually are not pretty but together they are just not a good look!

  48. I've never considered Ricki Lake to be a fashion icon so it doesn't surprise me she's on your list of fashion fails. Giuliana is always dressed impeccably.

  58. Oh Ricki Lake... that shirt is a crime against her adorableness. She needs a stylist -- specifically, one that would take her for a walk down Fash Boulevard. :)
