We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best — and worst — celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, in a special Oscars edition of her blog, she takes on Diane Kruger, who wore a Giambattista Valli mini to the Vanity Fair after-party:

Ummmm Diane, were you running late to the Vanity Fair after-party by chance? Did you get caught in traffic or spend too much time in hair and makeup?

The only reason I ask is because it appears as though you left your final dress fitting in a bit of a rush. You look like you have an entire bolt of fabric hanging off your backside. The Giambattista Valli mini and Louboutin pumps are a nice combo, but that’s just far too much fabric for my liking. It makes you look like you’re leaning to one side and quite uncomfortable. It also appears as though you’re wearing 101 Dalmatians.

On a positive note, I do love the simple and chic hairstyling. Your bold middle part and California-cool hair color is quite flattering for your face shape and complexion. Makeup palette is kept simple and the defined dark eye is perfect for a sultry after-party occasion.
