Lady Gaga & Doda - New BFFs?

Tuesday 5:16 PM, 09/02/2010
The Lady Gaga live Doda at the MTV Europe Awards
When we saw Polish pop queen Doda at the MTV Europe Awards last year, we thought she had a kind of similar look to Lady Gaga and we weren't the only ones who noticed! Lady Gaga herself has noticed that she and Doda may have a few things in common! So Lady Gaga and Doda are going to meet! We are thinking that any two girls who share a love for crazy silver leotards and Alexander McQueen shoes were meant to be best friends! So Doda is going to be a guest at an upcoming Lady Gaga concert and the ladies will hang out afterwards. Does this mean a Lady Gaga-Doda song and video? We hope so!

This Week's Worst Dressed Celebrities!

Monday 2:32 PM, 25/01/2010
8. Julianne Moore is at a tough fashion phase in her career right now. She is not a young Hollywood starlet anymore, but she is still gorgeous, so its tough to be age appropriate and fashion forward - we get that. This strange orange contraption, doesn't show off her beauty at all, it ages her and makes her look tired and saggy! 7. Oh no Taylor Momsen, not again! When your skirt is so short your can't take two steps in it without flashing everyone, you know you have committed a fashion crime! We really hope Taylor will soon learn the difference between edgy fashion and slutty style choices! 6. Actress Keri Russell is taking a risk here by wearing famously edgy designer Alexander McQueen. This trapeze dress drowns her and those sandals cut off her legs at a very unflattering place. Not her best look! 5. This white and silver dress Rihanna chose to wear this weekend in Cannes for the NRJ Music Awards actually looks like two totally seperate dresses - fighting with each other for attention on her body! We are not feeling this look at all! 4. French singer Sheryfa Luna in yet another harem pyjama look! We have already warned her once about this kind of look and how unflattering it is for the red carpet, there is no excuse for committing the kind of fashion crime twice! 3. Oh no Ashley Olsen we expect more from you than this! We know fashionistas love to experiment with fashion, but the "Bride of Frankenstein" look should only ever be brought out at Halloween! 2. We are not really sure what kind of statement Camilla Belle was trying to make with this swinging  retro Valentino mini-dress... we just can't find anything good to say about it, this whole look is unflattering, from the hair to the big bow at her waiste! 1. Kanye West's model girlfriend Amber Rose has done it again! She has shocked us with her ability to choose outfits that make her look slutty and unsophisticated over and over again! What is this girl thinking?
We are back after a little bit of a Fashion Police break and while we were gone there have been some huge crimes of fashion, especially with fashionistas trying to get noticed on the red carpet and at fashion week. When are they going to learn that being noticed for bad taste in clothes is not the best idea?! Just look at what Ashley Olsen, Camilla Belle and Rihanna decided to step out in this week!

This black and white dress suit by Alexander Mcqueen was an obvious choice for performance artist Dita Von Teese because of its obvious vintage appeal that matches her style so well, but Penelope Cruz updated the same dress to suit her sexy, modern European style too!
