Hit: We thought neon was passé until Kerry showed up in this fresh take at the Django Unchained photocall in Rome. The Peter Pilotto dress features bright panels, voluminous details and sharp angles. The sky blue sash of fabric across the bust is the stand-out feature here, but that ruffled hem is a close second. No need for accessories with this over-the-top dress—Kerry smartly pairs a natural beauty look with simple black pumps.

Bing: Kerry Washington nearly lost her mind while filming Django Unchained

Re Helen Hunt...what's so wrong with ordinary. It's nice to be able to look natural every so often while still looking stylish.

whether Kim is pregnant or not is not the issue. This "dress" is totally trash. It wouldn't look good on anyone or anything. Just call it like it is and leave the "mother-to-be" issue at the door since it has nothing at all to do with the outfit itself.

I'll bet if Kelly's look was worn by Taylor, you'd have a whole different opinion. The outfits are very similar, yet you give one koodos and dis the other. I think you're Jekyll & Hyde. Makes it easy to understand why you choose the way you do.

Laura...you are lucky to still have your job for Star Style. This Hit or Diss list is supposed to be about FASHION not personality where you put in your 2 cents worth; not appropriate!.


To qualify Kerry Washington's dress as a HIT is beyond me. Over the top is right: The ¨BIG TOP" 

aka Circus

I love Helen Mirren (H)  just as much as you but this outfit is not a HIT. The dress and overcoat are not the same blue hence, not a matching outfit and the shoes are horrible.

Dress for Diane Lane (H) fits well but is very BLAH old fashion even and the gray accessories do nothing for this outfit

Helen Hunt (D)  looks terrific. Her hairstyle is the newest thing-check it out-and barely any makeup? Hey! the girl looks great.

Louise Roe & Katharine McPhee:  YUCK unlimited.

you need to step this up editors.  I'm not a celebrity guru.  Before the hit or diss, how about putting person's name??  Also, liked it better before when comments travelled with the page.  Don't need to see comment on HHunt on page with KK.  Perhaps you're trying to make it look like there are more comments then there actually is?  This is a sad version of the former hit and miss with Chris and Steph.  You're running out of chances to redeem this page and make it worth the weekly visit.

Kerry's dress has "way too much going on" as you've said yourself about many another outfit and the silly hole above the waist just doesn't need to be there.

Don't know how you keep your job, you have the worst tastes. Your boss must be sleeping on the job. I guess tacky people must love you but you scare me to hell with your hits.

Kerry Washington’s dress was awful.  It wasn’t flattering on her body!  The “sky blue fabric across the bust is the stand-out feature?”  Trust me it is one of the stand-out’s and it’s not in a good way.  The ruffles just look like someone vomited on the dress I’m sorry.  Her makeup and hair are the best thing going on here.


Helen reminds me of one of those big candles in a dollar store.  Waaay too much periwinkle.  Escadanono..


Not sure what Kim was thinking, that dress could double as a bag for potatoes.  Just awful.


Carly’s skirt must be a joke by her stylist.

Taylor Swift looks great! Modern, chic and edgy, very much age appropriate.


You can never go wrong with black on black (Lindsay Lohan), she could have toned down the fur coat and just had a fur vest, or fur scarf.  The jacket she is wearing looks dated, or like it came out of a tickle-trunk.


Diane Lane gets a pass.


Helen could use some accessories!  And maybe a red or berry lip couldn’t hurt.  Same goes for Sally Field.

That dress is a hot mess.  With the geometic patterns and design of the basic dress it would have been fine.  Add the ruffle and it makes it too busy and just sloppy.  I notice that when the stars are hot and up and coming it doesn't matter what they wear for you to say they are chic, slick, fabulous, etc.  I wouldn't line my dog's bed with it.  It's like the designer couldn't make its mind.

Let's see your diss the leather leggings worn by Kelly Rowland but thought similar leather leggings looked great on Taylor Swift.....  The tops are comparable as well.  It doesn't look cheap, but your comments certainly are.   Kelly has never looked better!!!

The shoes are fine but the jumpsuit looks like something you would wear to the beach.  Jumpsuits are not appropriate for the red carpet.  Generally, they are a little too casual looking just like this one.  As a matter of fact the pattern of the fabric makes this jumpsuit look like pyjamas, just sew the feet on them and you have a onesie.

Ohhhh Helen (Mirren) those shoes are so not u!!!!... :(
Jan 8, 2013 4:34PM
These things are so out of whack. These editors and critics are just a bunch of haters looking to get people talking. Y'all suck big kahunas!
Jan 8, 2013 12:29AM
always elegant lady ,,,but sorry not the shoes,,,those are for a youger girl,,,
Jan 8, 2013 9:10PM

You Diss Carly Rae Jepsen because OMG she looked like a presentable young lady with no low cut top, no tighter than thight, bum revealing skirt or pants. The young heavens forbid looks like a young lady, must be why the so called fashion critic here hates it.

WOW must be a terrible day when our youth dress with a good example for Christmas or New Years !!!!! No wonder you dont understand it Laura it has taste and class, something you obviously lack!! Happy 2013 please educate yourself as a treat this year.

kelly's outfit ant hairstyle is beautiful.She looks like a forever young and  sexy sister.You people who judge are racist and ****.Way to go Kelly,give me the recipe for your forever young look without having surgery like all those fricks out  there!!!!!!!!!

Laura Lanktree. Did you mail your hits and disses in? I honestly dont know from where you learned your fashion sense. My lord woman.....you are in the wrong profession is what you posted today is what you get paid to do.


Jan 8, 2013 9:58PM

Just who is judging the clothes on these women? OMG Kelly looks FABULOUS in this outfit. Ladies and gentlemen of the viewing audience , I implore you....do NOT pay any attention to these wannabe fashion critics. go with what you , personally , like on these women and forget the misguided, obtuse views of those who may want to believe they know of what they speak...but clearly do not. In the end it is ALWAYS YOUR PERSONAL OPINION THAT MATTERS. Not some brand name brown noser who sucks up to corperate blood suckers anyway!!!

Strange how you figure skin-tight pants are more acceptable than leggings. Anything that can lead to camel-toe isn't acceptable on any female unless she's trying to look trashy. And the outfit on Swift just goes to prove that she really is a hooker in diguise and not the sweet-thing-next-door she tries to prove herself to be. She ain't fooling anyone. As for Lindsay, I don't see the "tool marks" you refer to. Just because you hate her doesn't mean everything you say has to be rude.
