khloe kardashian: animal instinct

Khloe Kardashian showed off her wild side at the Critics' Choice Awards on Jan. 14. The reality star, who recently died her hair a fiery red, accentuated her long set of gams in a cheetah-print minidress with a dramatic, sheer train. Is the effect sexy and cool -- or is her dress having an identity crisis?

nicole richie's vintage vibe

Nicole Richie traded in her boho-chic style for a retro 1920s look on the red carpet in L.A. on Jan. 15. Are you digging her velvety fringe accents and styled, wavy tendrils? Or do you prefer a more relaxed Richie?

rachel mcadams: so sexy!

Actress Rachel McAdams takes the plunge into a style risk at the London premiere of her new film Morning Glory on Jan. 11. The flirty print on her cleavage-baring frock is complemented by her edgy, satin pumps. We just hope she's using double-stick tape!

demi moore: trim & tassels

Fashion-forward couple Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher turn heads at the after-party for a screening of No Strings Attached in N.Y.C. on Jan. 20. Sporting a flowing, cerulean A-line skirt, Moore looks bright and beautiful. But did a cat get a hold of her sheer, shredded top?

michelle williams: blushing bride?

There's nothing wrong with donning a bit of winter white to stand out on the red carpet. But Michelle Williams' conservative, matronly dress -- which she wore to the Critics' Choice Awards on Jan. 14 -- seems to say "here comes the bride," instead of "here comes the movie star."

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

kim kardashian: sneak peek

Reality star Kim Kardashian gave fans an eyeful of cleavage outside The Late Show with David Letterman on Jan. 18. Her hair and makeup looked stunning, but her dress was sheer, skintight and metallic. Is it all too much look?


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

eva mendes: feminine frills

Sultry actress Eva Mendes took a delicate approach to fashion at a charity gala in L.A. on Jan. 15. Silky chiffon, sweet ribbons and soft layers gave Mendes ultra feminine appeal -- but the band of flowers decorating her upswept hair looked a tiny bit childish. Do you miss her more mature style?

camilla belle: queen of the crop

Budding actress (and Joe Jonas' ex) Camilla Belle blossomed in a ruched tube top worn at the Jan. 18 premiere of From Prada to Nada. While we appreciate a unique approach to the classic pantsuit, we have to wonder: Do Belle's flawless abs really need to be flaunted on the red carpet?

natalie portman: sheer surprise

While Natalie Portman may be earning universal praise for Black Swan, this outfit is a different story. The mom-to-be glows at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Jan. 8, but something seems awry with her baggy, sequined shirtdress. Can you put your fing

rihanna: red, white & nude

Rihanna is the only girl in the world who could pull off this form-fitting dress! The What's My Name singer is known for taking fashion risks, and the see-through, striped dress she wore on New Year's Eve at Pure nightclub in Las Vegas was no exception. Should she have toned it down or did she start the year off right?


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

drew barrymore: orange appeal

Hollywood golden girl Drew Barrymore rocks an electric-orange mermaid gown to a CoverGirl party in West Hollywood on Jan. 5. The loose-fitting look seems easy and breezy -- but is it beautiful?


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

kourtney kardashian: etch a sketch

Kourtney Kardashian takes style back to the drawing board with this look, which she wore to the People's Choice Awards in L.A. on Jan. 5. The graffiti-style design on her strapless mini is definitely unique -- but is it more of a fashion blunder than a fashion wonder?

whitney port: '80s, baby!

It may be 2011, but that didn't stop Whitney Port from busting out a blast from the past for a New Year's Eve party in Las Vegas. With its oversized sleeves, the fashion designer's shiny turquoise mini would have been funky and fun in 1985 -- but was it the right move for the new year?


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

amy adams: blue swoon

New mom Amy Adams shows off her post-baby curves in a form-fitting frock at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Jan. 8. The bright-blue hue and metallic accessories help make this look a hit. But does the off-the-shoulder design look more sloppy than sleek?


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

rashida jones: shoe shock

Actress Rashida Jones trades in her Office attire for a bit of glam as she rings in the new year in Las Vegas on Dec. 31. Too bad we're too busy scratching our heads over her choice of footwear (are they pumps? booties? leg warmers?) to fully appreciate her festive frock.


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

rachel mcadams: red-hot 'morning'

Morning Glory star Rachel McAdams turns heads at the film's Berlin premiere on Jan. 9 in a sultry, crimson gown. While the eye-popping color is spot-on, we're not quite sold on the flowing silhouette. Does the Grecian-inspired dress flatter the actress' curves -- or is it just a curve ball?


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

angelina jolie: va-va-velvet

She's usually a fashion expert, but Angelina Jolie may have tipped the scales at the Dec. 16 premiere of The Tourist in Madrid, Spain. Her gown's intricate beading and rich fabrics are worthy of Hollywood royalty, but the matronly shawl and heavy velvet skirt seem to age the 35-year-old actress well beyond her years.

gwyneth paltrow: tie me up

From the front, Gwyneth Paltrow looks reserved and sophisticated in her long-sleeve gown, which she wore to the Beverly Hills premiere of Country Strong on Dec. 14. But from the side, she reveals a slit so high she needs string to hold her dress together. The star undoubtedly turned a few heads with this skin-baring outfit -- but was it worthy of the attention?


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

christina aguilera: glam goddess?

Christina Aguilera knows how to command attention -- and she does just that at the Germany premiere of her new film Burlesque on Dec. 16.  Draped in a flowing fuchsia gown, Aguilera looks more like a Grecian goddess than a burlesque dancer. Our only qualm? The giant cleavage knot distracting from her assets.

jessica alba: flirty flapper

Nothing complements a sleek new 'do like a modern-day flapper dress! Just ask Jessica Alba, who showed up at the N.Y.C. premiere of Little Fockers on Dec. 15 with a freshly cut bob and a whole lotta fringe. With its multiple tiers and satin bows, the busy frock appears to take on a life of its own -- and we're not sure that's a good thing.


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

emily blunt: aqua girl

British beauty Emily Blunt looks pretty and playful at the Dec. 18 Hollywood premiere of Gulliver's Travels. The draped aqua bodice adds a bright pop of color to her two-toned look. But we can't help but wonder: Did she forget to tuck in the front ruffle?


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


michelle williams: thrills and frills

Michelle Williams plays innocent at a Dec. 13 screening of Blue Valentine in N.Y.C. With her frilly, chiffon dress, Williams' youthful appearance is a direct contrast to her sexy onscreen persona. But would she look better with a slightly more grown-up style?


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

kim kardashian: fashion 'trek'

Kim Kardashian rocks an ultra-futuristic Vulcan-style jacket as she arrives at Los Angeles International Airport on Dec. 6. Completing the look: signature thigh-high boots and spandex. Does she look more Star Trek than stylish?

halle berry: suited up

It appears Halle Berry got struck with Saturday Night Fever, while walking through Purple Rain on her way to Graceland. Not really, but we're trying to think of all the reasons why the Golden Globe nominee might have worn this gold paisley suit to the Hollywood premiere of her film Frankie and Alice on Nov. 30.


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

lea michele: white oleander

Lea Michele dons a textured polka-dotted gown at the Hollywood Style Awards in Westwood, Calif., on Dec. 12. But is the Glee star and Golden Globe nominee's frock a little too stiff for the playful leading lady?


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

eva mendes: fairytale frock

Little Bo Peep, still looking for those sheep? Fret not, we've found them, trailing behind Eva Mendes and her rose-colored ruffles. Wearing a ruffle corseted bustier and matching nude pumps and clutch, the actress has us caught somewhere between too cute and too costume-y at the Last Night premiere on Dec. 6 in Marrakech, Morocco.

nicky hilton: style 'warrior'

Nicky Hilton dons a black leather A-line minidress for the Dec. 8 launch of the Devon flagship store in Beverly Hills. Does the socialite-designer's neck-hugging frock look too Xena: Warrior Princess or is the ensemble fit for an heiress?

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

liv tyler: bird of a feather

Liv Tyler literally flocked to Charlize Theron's Africa Outreach Project benefit in New York City on Dec. 6. The actress coordinated a yellow feathered mini with an all-black ensemble, including an oversized blazer and an orange pout. Does her look take flight or fall flat?

rachel bilson: sheer frill

Rachel Bilson finds her thrills in frills at the launch event for the William Rast limited-edition collection for Target on Dec. 11 in Los Angeles. With a strapless beige camisole underneath sparkling, sheer blue fabric, is her ensemble feminine and flirty or just gaudy?

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

emma roberts: dizzying duds

Actress Emma Roberts keeps it funky in a cutout babydoll dress at the British Fashion Awards on Dec. 7 in London, England. Does the striking look work for the 19-year-old?

olivia wilde: golden girl

Olivia Wilde arrives at the Los Angeles premiere of her new film TRON: Legacy on Dec. 11 in a long-sleeved gold gown accented with a belt and a dramatic keyhole neckline. Does the metallic look complement or overpower her?

madonna: graphic artist

Madonna is known for her gutsy fashion sensibility, but does the graphic-print dress she paired with thigh-high leather boots at the Nov. 29 opening of her new gym, Hard Candy Fitness, in Mexico City, Mexico, suit the pop queen or look like she's trying too hard to be young?

kim kardashian: sea goddess?

Kim Kardashian adds some Egyptian flair in her sea-foam gown featuring a jeweled neckline at the 7th Annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards on Nov. 15 in New York City. Does she look regal or like she's auditioning for the part of Cleopatra?


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

anne hathaway: budding look

Golden Globe nominee Anne Hathaway works a flower-patch dress and a tight updo at the American Museum of Natural History gala on Nov. 18 in New York City, but does the Love and Other Drugs star appear more like a 1960s housewife than a modern-day A-list actress?
