The American Music Awards happened and I don’t think anyone really cared that much, but here’s your outfit recap, just in case. Yeah, it’s a day late. Honestly, who really cares? We covered Katy Perry’s “is this offensive” Geisha performance, which was probably the most interesting thing of the whole night. So here’s the outfits, a touch late, but we can still have fun oooo-ing and aaaah-ing and WTF-ing. Which is what I’ll need your help with. I want you to pick the best, worst, and most WTF outfit of the night. Here we go!

Jennifer Lawrence, everyone’s favorite everything, is the new face of Dior and we’re seeing a new face of hers in Dior’s latest ads that show Ms. Lawrence in minimal makeup and menswear inspired clothing. The first Dior ad was also light on makeup and rather gorgeous. This campaign is a lot moodier and a little more androgynous. What do we think?
I don’t see how anyone could call her “fat” after seeing these.

Melissa McCarthy was on the cover of Elle magazine in ghastly 1980′s Elizabeth Taylor hair. Other than that, she looked rather lovely, except a lot of people thought she was being “fat shamed” because she was covered up in a large overcoat. But Ms. McCarthy wanted the coat. She doesn’t get the fuss and she explains how the shoot went down. From E! News via E Online:
What I found so bizarre is I picked the coat. I grabbed the coat. I covered up. I had a great black dress on but I thought, it comes out in November. I was so sick of summer. I live in Southern California. I was like, ‘Give me a big coat to wear. Give the girl some cashmere!’
I picked the coat. They were like, ‘The dress is really great,’ but I was like, ‘Yeah, but look at this.’ I was just shocked I didn’t steal it. Now I think I really should have the coat. I’m petitioning for that coat. Give me that coat. I earned it, damn it!
Got it, everyone? She picked the coat. She loves the coat. She loves the cover.
Hopefully this will end COATGATE 2013.

David Bowie was named the best-dressed British person in history by BBC History Magazine. I’m sure Daniel Radcliffe was a close second (dat blue suit). And if Moby didn’t feel badly enough about losing Bowie’s hat, now he’s got to deal with this. He lost the hat of the most well-dressed Briton in history. That poor man.
Mr. David Robert Jones faced some stiff competition. From HistoryExtra.com the official site of BBC History Magazine:
Other contenders for the title were Queen Elizabeth I; Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire; and original dandy Beau Brummell, a fashion icon who reputedly spent six hours a day getting ready. The trio received 13.6 per cent, 9.5 per cent and 8.4 per cent of the votes respectively.
Less obvious nominations for the accolade included Henry III, a monarch known for his love of luxurious fabrics; Whig politician Charles James Fox and 17th-century diarist Samuel Pepys.
Bowie won with 48.5% of the vote.
Suck it, Kate Middleton!!

Gwyneth Paltrow loves to think of herself as a forward-thinking fashion designer. Unfortunately, unless you’ve got Paltrow money, you’re not thinking what she’s thinking. Her favorite spring fashions costs more than $400k and a sweatshirt she designed costs $845. Which, I guess by comparison, makes this “eco friendly backpack” a steal at $185. You can find even more “eco-friendly” items she collaborated on with designers Ecoalf, on her website, GOOP. And here’s the stunning backpack:
So, yeah, Jansport this is not. But it’s just as ugly and plain. Oh, Gwyneth. I can’t even.

Hilary Duff will not be ignored, damnit. She was photographed running errands in Los Angeles while wearing thigh high boots (above). I love me some tall boots, but I do wonder if they’re daytime appropriate. I think with the right outfit it can be killer, no matter the time of day. But with this…I don’t know.
Then again, what else does she have going on? I’m not saying that to be mean, I’m saying that out of honesty. She’s really not doing a whole lot aside from raising her kid and possibly getting lip injections. So I guess let her throw on some boots and hit the town.
What do you think though: are thigh high boots totally daytime inappropriate or do you think they work here?
