Celeb Fashion Hits & Misses
PENELOPE CRUZ: HIT
Former dancer Penelope Cruz (at a movie premiere in Madrid) exudes grace in a glamorous Chanel gown festooned with dramatic layers of ruffles.
JANET JACKSON: MISS
Our sweet tooth is hurting: Janet Jackson (with boyfriend Jermaine Dupri) is swathed in a doily-like cotton-candy-pink dress at record exec Clive Davis's pre-Grammy party at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
HALLE BERRY: HIT
Halle Berry keeps it simple but sexy in a white Versace halter dress at the New York City premiere of the HBO film Lackawanna Blues, which she executive-produced.
KELLY OSBOURNE: MISS
Kelly Osbourne is busting out of her ill-fitting frock at Clive Davis's pre-Grammy party. To boot, she clearly got some hair tips from Elvira.
NICOLE RICHIE: HIT
A svelte Nicole Richie is fit to be tied in a sleek, chocolate-brown Roberto Cavalli gown at the opening of the designer's new Beverly Hills store.
DEBRA MESSING: HIT
Will amp Grace star Debra Messing complements her fiery locks with a low-dipping, bejeweled fuchsia Cynthia Steffe gown at the Screen Actors Guild Awards at L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium.
KELLY CLARKSON: MISS
Singer Kelly Clarkson has trimmed down, but her gold lame gown (with a hem that appears to be exploding) doesn't flatter her new toned figure.
ANNA NICOLE SMITH: MISS
Did Anna Nicole Smith forget her dress? She seems to be only partially clothed in what looks like a negligee (featuring the highest of slits) at the Los Angeles premiere of Be Cool.
EVA MENDES: HIT
Hitch star Eva Mendes is statuesque in a silky Herve Leger gown at her movie's New York City premiere.
PAULA ABDUL: MISS
A-riding she will go! Paula Abdul seems suited up for an equestrian event – not the L.A. premiere of Be Cool – with her clashing, multi-patterned cropped jacket and knee-high boots.
MISCHA BARTON: HIT
The O.C.'s Mischa Barton showcases her delicate beauty in an ethereal Donna Karan cocktail dress with an airy tulle overlay.
PATRICIA ARQUETTE: MISS
Where's the disco ball? Patricia Arquette has clearly caught a bad case of boogie fever in a voluminous 1970s-style silky dress at an NBC party in Universal City, Calif.
CATE BLANCHETT: HIT
Academy Award nominee Cate Blanchett is all elegance in a layered Christian Lacroix tea-length gown with a ruched waist at the Elle Style Awards in London.
