Vanity Fair has come out with it’s annual Best Dressed list, and among the usual assemblage of models, socialites, fashion designers, and heiresses (yawn), there are a few interesting new faces (Dita Von Teese, Victoria Beckham, Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston) and a bunch of humpy young turks that I’m dying to get to know better. Classical violinist Charie Siem made the cut, as did Ronan Farrow, Mia and Woody’s super-hot son (both pictured left). Photographer Francesco Carrozoni is worth checking out, as is Alexander Gilkes (MY FAVORITE), and Bryan Ferry’s studly young sons Isaac, Otis, and Tara. See the whole list here. (Photos: Facebook)

A HUGE condragulations to Mama Ru for winning Best Dressed Reality TV Judge from Entertainment Weekly! She beat out the likes of Shakira and Heidi Klum in a landslide victory, garnering 74% of the vote! Can I get an Amen?
RuPaul has yet again been nominated for an award! This time the award is for “Best Dressed Reality TV Judge” by Entertainment Weekly. If you have any doubts, (WHY WOULD YOU?!) than take a look at this video featuring all of Ru’s looks from every season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Then head over to EW and cast your vote!
Sure, Jennifer Lawrence killed it in her undulating Dior, and Jane Fonda was brilliant in her acid yellow gown, and Halle Berry looked the best she’s ever looked – but for my money, it was Chinese actress/fashion goddess Fan Bing Bing in her shocking pink Marchesa and Salma Hayek in her Alexander McQueen (with its gasp-inducing beaded bib halter) that earn best dressed honors. True, Salma’s hair was an unruly rats nest (she should have taken notes from Ms Bing Bing), but she also had the best accessory of the evening on her arm, her billionaire husband François-Henri Pinault.

Obviously my favorite look of the night was Dr John dressed as the Ewok war chief from the forest moon of Endor. Feathers, fringe, and fur, oh my. He was magnificent. I had been switching back and forth with Downton Abbey and when I came back to the Black Keys performance I thought perhaps a homeless man had wandered off Pico and somehow made it onto the stage. My other favorite outfits of the night were Jack White’s peacock suit and Wiz Khalifa’s dizzying black-and-white zig-zag suit worn without a shirt and with multiple Versace necklaces. And the Boy of London hat. That was a nice touch. Never thought I’d write the words Wiz Khalifa and best dressed in the same post, but there you are. Honorable mentions go to Janelle Monae (although she needs to mix it up a little, I’m getting tired of the never-ending tuxedo variations), Carrie Underwood’s ball gown/movie projector screen, and J-Lo’s unitard dress with built-in Angie leg .
BEST: Marion Cotillard’s stunning navy-and-white satin Dior gown and new chin-length bob had me flopping on my living room floor; Justin’s stick-straight hair, brown and fawn Tom Ford silk linen hopsack damier O’Connor suit, slim pastel brown gingham shirt, brown and white silk pocket square and nubby gray tie made him look like the hot preppy douchebag of my dreams. WORST: Ugh. Julianne Moore, usually so flawless, just looked dumpy in her white Chanel gown with tacky floral appliques. Her boobs drooped, her hips looked enormous, even her hair seemed dull. And don’t get me started on Busy Philipps, omg. LOVE HER TO DEATH, THINK THE ABSOLUTE WORLD OF HER, but dear God in heaven that dress is a disaster. Being pregnant is no excuse. Lots of stars navigate their pregnancies with style. Natalie Portman was practically in labor the entire 2011 awards season and never missed a beat. But this dress is just ghastly. Those DIY shoulder pads, the cheap lycra fabric, even that Lorraine Schwarz necklace looks like it was from the dollar bin at Rite-Aid. (Photos: Pacific Coast News)
And it’s a TIE! Between Diane Kruger at Cannes and Diane Kruger at Cannes! I mean: Diane looks gorgeous of course, but then there’s Diane, in that TO-DIE FOR gown. So who can choose? I’m giving a slight edge to the hoop skirt, but it’s too close to call. They’ll just have to battle it out amongst themselves to see who takes the trophy home. (First dress: Versace, second dress: Dior)
