Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

Penelope Cruz: Red Hot



Actress Penelope Cruz heats up the red carpet at the Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides premiere on May 16 in Munich, Germany. In her ruby-colored, metallic column gown, we think the actress looks like a futuristic femme fatale. Do you think her look is out of this world?

Zooey Deschanel: Prom Queen?



It may be prom season, but 31-year-old Zooey Deschanel is a little too old for a high school dance. The actress picks a frilly, hot-pink dress for a Fox event in N.Y.C. on May 16. Does she deserve a crown for her playful style?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

kim kardashian: prints charming

Reality star Kim Kardashian looks bright and colorful at the launch of her new fragrance in Aventura, Fla., on May 14. And though Kim's competing prints may look mismatched, she pulls off the look with killer confidence. Does her bold look win you over?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

maya rudolph: bad 'bridesmaid'

Draped in a metallic pink gown, Maya Rudolph is all about accentuating her baby bump at the Bridesmaids premiere on April 28 in L.A. We love that the daring mom-to-be chose an eye-catching shade, instead of basic (and slimming) black. But we have to wonder: Was she actually trying to look like a tacky bridesmaid?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

ellen pompeo: one-piece wonder

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo is all about the jumpsuits this spring! The actress sports a maroon one-piece at a benefit on April 20 -- and she rocks a metallic, strapless version for the Mary J. Blige Honors Concert in N.Y.C on May 1. Are you jumping for joy over this new trend?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

katy perry: work of art?

Katy Perry gets in touch with her artsy side for Australia’s Logie Awards on May 1. The singer rocks an emerald cocktail dress featuring a photograph of Man Ray’s "Le Violon d’Ingres." Great fashion can often be considered a work of art -- but this look takes the idea a little too literally!

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

blake lively: going green

Gossip Girl star Blake Lively debuts her new, fiery-red locks at the Time 100 gala on April 26 in N.Y.C. With her curve-hugging, sea-green evening gown, we can’t help but to compare this bombshell to The Little Mermaid. But is her look princess-perfect -- or should she dive back under the sea?

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

jennifer lopez: disco diva

American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez looks like a walking disco ball at a party for her new album Love? in L.A on April 26. The fashionista's silver-sequined jumpsuit is certainly fit for a diva, but the ultra-girly bow seems a bit out of place. Are you in love with her look -- or is it all shine and no substance?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

rihanna: daring dots

Rihanna wears a black-and-white mini with lace accents as she promotes her new fragrance Reb’l Fleur at Macy's in N.Y.C on April 29. The polka-dot pattern is fun and flirty, but the splashes of embroidery make the look a little too busy. Does the singer's style have you seeing spots?

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

jessica simpson: outrageous orange

Singer Jessica Simpson knows how to command attention -- especially in this wild, patterned mini! Spotted on the pink carpet at Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood party in L.A. on April 26, Jessica's dress is definitely eye-catching. Are you loving her bold style? Or do you want to turn down the volume on her loud frock?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

raven symoné: cheetah girl

Dressed in head-to-toe animal print, actress Raven Symoné shows off her slimmed-down frame at the 18th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala in L.A on April 29. Perhaps she was inspired from her Cheetah Girls days on the Disney channel? There's no denying that her body looks great, but we'd prefer if she'd chosen the dress or the shoes -- not both.


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

jennifer hudson: slimming silhouette

American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson shows off her stunning body transformation at the 2nd Annual Mary J. Blige Honors Concert in N.Y.C on May 2. The hot mama stole the spotlight in a skin-tight pink dress. But was it a mistake to pair the sexy look with clunky, black booties?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

kim kardashian: party pants?

Reality star Kim Kardashian almost always hits a fierce note on the red carpet, but everyone has their iffy days. We're slightly puzzled by these drapey, high-waisted harem pants, which she rocks at a Redbook cover party in West Hollywood on April 11. They seem to be hiding a tummy -- which we know workout buff Kim doesn't have! Do they work for you?

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

heidi klum: denim darling

Dressed in a loose-fitting blouse, distressed jeans and polka dot platforms, supermodel Heidi Klum looks cute and casual at the Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil premiere on April 16 in L.A. Is her playful, relaxed look fitting for the family-friendly event -- or could she use a touch more glamour on the red carpet?

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

gwyneth paltrow: uneven ground

Gwyneth Paltrow may be known for her sleek fashion choices, but this monochromatic look seems a little off. The actress pairs a nude, asymmetrical dress with a slouchy, satin blazer for an April 13 taping of Good Morning America. Worn separately, these pieces would be a hit -- but together, the angular designs don't seem to add up.

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

cynthia nixon: strike a posy

Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon is ready for spring! The actress chooses an off-the-shoulder, floral frock for an event in N.Y.C. on April 13. We're loving the bright, cheerful colors -- but does the garden-inspired print take the flower trend too far?

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

lindsay lohan: vintage vibe

No boring cocktail dresses here! Lindsay Lohan takes a fashion risk, showing up at a press conference in N.Y.C. on April 12 decked out in a '70s-style jumpsuit. Unfortunately the droopy fit doesn't do much for her figure, and the drab colors seem to wash out her freckled skin.

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

evan rachel wood: pleats and pearls

In her conservative, pleated dress -- which she wears to the D.C. premiere of The Conspirator on April 10 -- Evan Rachel Wood looks more like a middle-aged schoolmarm than a sexy, young star. Perhaps the actress is taking style cues from the set of her HBO miniseries, Mildred Pierce?

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

anne hathaway: geek chic

Anne Hathaway stuns at the L.A. premiere of Rio in a midnight, beaded dress. But instead of glamming up the luxe look with baubles and bling, she sports a pair of thick-rimmed glasses at the April 10 event. The hipster-cool specs might be better paired with skinny jeans and a boyfriend blazer, but we love that Hathaway has the guts to let her inner geek shine on the red carpet.

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

naomi watts: loose ends

It seems Naomi Watts is choosing comfort over style! The actress dons a breezy, tiered dress for the Tribeca Ball on April 4 in N.Y.C. The loose-fitting gown would be a perfect maternity look -- but we're pretty sure Watts isn't pregnant!

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

katie holmes: prairie tale

Katie Holmes, who plays Jacqueline Onassis in the TV miniseries The Kennedys, arrives at the March 28 premiere in Beverly Hills looking casual in a light peasant dress and low, strappy sandals. Is her relaxed ensemble refreshing or too laid-back for the event?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

lindsay lohan: passion for print

Lindsay Lohan dons a cream printed minidress at a New York City screening of Source Code on March 31. After trying to decode the vibrantly designed frock, we're still not sure what to think of the embattled actress's ensemble: Is it short and chic or short on style? 

Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

blake lively: red alert

Much like her name, Blake Lively has one bubbly sense of style. Dressed in a red floral dress with a fluffy skirt, the Gossip Girl star attends the CinemaCon - Big Screen Achievement Awards on March 31 in Las Vegas. Although we admire the actress for stepping outside of the box, does it make a statement or miss the mark?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

keri hilson: the k-team

Singer Keri Hilson is on accessory overdrive at Paper magazine's Beautiful People Party on March 29 in Los Angeles: From her thigh-high boots to her red oversized belt to her bra-baring top, is her getup more sexy superhero (a leopard print-sporting Wonder Woman, perhaps?) than stylish R&B songstress?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

emma roberts: blue crush

Tweed and feathers don't usually go together, but Emma Roberts rocks the combo with confidence at the Chanel show on March 8 during Paris Fashion Week. The young actress glows in the baby blue shade -- but would her stylish aunt, Julia Roberts, approve of the look?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

madonna: (missing) material girl

There’s no doubt that Madonna loves to wear daring outfits (cone bra, anyone?), but this look really pushes the limits. The singer arrives at the Vanity Fair Oscars party on Feb. 27 wearing what looks like black lingerie with a lace overlay and a black furry vest. We know you've got killer gams, Madge -- but is this really the place to show them off?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

jennifer lopez: school daze

Is Jennifer Lopez channeling old-school Britney Spears in this school-girl getup? The Idol judge sports high-waisted shorts, a midriff blouse and a plaid blazer to The Grove on March 3 in L.A. It's clear J.Lo's student days are a long behind her, but there's no harm in reminiscing -- or is there?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

january jones: fashion brigade

Has January Jones' sense of style gone AWOL? Dressed in a navy, asymmetrical gown with matching severe bangs, the actress takes the military trend a little too literally at the L.A. premiere of Unknown on Feb. 16. Does the Mad Men star earn a salute for her risky look?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

gwen stefani: animal instinct

Gwen Stefani never disappoints with her quirky fashion sense -- and wearing a flowing, animal-print jumpsuit for her L.A.M.B. fashion show on Feb. 17. is no exception! The mom of two sets off the look with her signature red pout and a unique beehive bun. It's not the rocker's most outrageous getup, but it's definitely still eye-catching!


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

vanessa hudgens: flower power

Vanessa Hudgens' paisley bell-bottoms and sheer, bell-sleeved blouse would be great for a '70s costume party -- but for sitting front row during New York Fashion Week? We're not so sure. The vintage look, which she wore to the Anna Sui show on Feb. 16, is certainly playful, but does it leave you feeling groovy?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

leona lewis: pop art

British songstress Leona Lewis has found a good thing -- and she’s not letting it go! The international star pairs a blue, high-waisted pencil skirt with a bright bow top for an event on Feb. 9. And just the day before, the singer sported a very similar look to the L.A. premiere of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. Her pop art fashion choices are fun and flirty, but are they too cartoon-ish?


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

miley cyrus: hippie chic?

Miley Cyrus may have been born in the '90s, but that won't stop her from taking inspiration from the '70s! The 18-year-old pop star rocks out in bell-bottom jeans and a floor-length, fringe robe for the L.A. premiere of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never on Feb. 8. All Miley needs now is peace, love...and maybe a new stylist!



Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

whitney port: tie me up

Reality star Whitney Port arrives at the premiere of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never draped in a loose-fitting, silver sequin top and a black, knotted skirt. While the baggy look is a bit unusual for the budding designer, we're glad she decided to show a little leg.


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

hayden panettiere: blue swoon

Actress Hayden Panettiere arrives at an event in Dallas on Feb. 4 wearing an '80s-inspired, velvet dress. Though the sheer sleeves and dramatic shoulders are reminiscent of Dynasty, the result is sexy and fun. We only wish she had nixed the matching navy tights!


Celeb Style We're Iffy About: Likes or Yikes?

demi moore: the shining

With a body that great, Demi Moore can pull off almost anything. But the stiff, light-reflecting dress she wore to the Jan. 25 premiere of Margin Call during the Sundance Film Festival might be the exception. While we love the cute zipper detailing and her weather appropriate booties, the too-shiny material just doesn't fare well under bright camera flashes.
