Love It: Natalie Portman’s Ladylike Gray: My style isn’t the most creative on our team — I like the classics. So Natalie Portman’s sophisticated, simple Dior really spoke to me. She was at the line’s couture presentation, but she kept her own look subdued with just a few hints of color and texture — a winning, fresh combination. –Alex Apatoff, Senior Style Editor
Love It: Jordana Brewster’s Sexy Shift Dress: As N.Y.C dug out from a few more inches of snow this week, I was pleasantly surprised, and totally jealous, to see some spring inspiration from Jordana Brewster. The actress couldn’t have looked more radiant in this white Narciso Rodriguez number at the premiere of Project Almanac in L.A. While the silhouette is sweet and breezy, the deep neckline and asymmetrical hemline give this embellished shift a “for grown-ups only” feel. And I love that she opted for black accessories, not that there’s anything basic her acrylic Edie Parker clutch and sheer black pumps, which solidify a night-time vibe. –Jackie Fields, Beauty Writer
Leave It: Cate Blanchett’s Boudoir Bust: Pink satin is a fabric that’s nearly impossible to pull off. How Cate Blanchett managed to cut such a slender figure without a single wrinkle means that this Alexander McQueen dress must be perfectly constructed. Though I appreciate that tailoring feat (and Cate’s permanent status on everyone’s list of Fashion Icons), I do not 100 percent adore it. If she was photographed lounging on a Victorian fainting couch while wearing these Celine fur heels, I’d be all in. But for an awards show? In the summer, down in Australia? Not sure I’m on board with the boudoir vibe. Ultimately, this look seems to be the symptom of a larger problem — I mean “trend”: It looks like lingerie as regular glam wear is here to stay … just ask Rosie and Rihanna. Sigh. –Catherine Kast, Style Writer
