Tod Haynes

Colour: Quite a creative colour combination, but because of the different type of clothing and material it kind of works.
Shape: The structure and shape of his outfit are all fitted, at the right length and also well tailored. The pockets of his jackets are at the right height, he wears the casual wear in the right way and manages to use the right fabrics and material for his shape without looking sloppy .He is creative in a credible way.
Style: He is dressed right for his creative profession, it is a good outfit for the type of event and his perfects his 70ish look nicely with his hairstyle! He looks credible in his look, but he could have optimised his look by skipping the black formal belt and shoes and opt for black or brown shoes and belt, which would have been more in line with his colouring, style and look.

Overall rating: 4*****
Four stars
Veronica Loren

Colour: The colour combination of the dress works for her, but they look very dated and tired on this type of “doll’s dress”.
Shape: The “falling off the shoulder straps” works for her shape and the volume of the hemline shows off her well toned legs.
Style: But the whole outfit and look reminds me more of being dressed for a “Rendezvous at home'” than for an red carpet event at day time. She just looks underdressed like she is expecting to see someone rather that she is expected to be somewhere. Also, the outfit is so inappropriate to wear at such weather condition.

Overall Rating: 2**
Two Stars


Zach Braff

Colour: This light grey is far too light for his colouring- it makes him look like a lightweight. It just looks very wrong on him and doesn’t do anything for him- especially not this suit.
Shape: On the first impression the shape of the suit looks good on him but only when you look closer it seems something is missing- either a waist coat was meant to be worn with this suit or the second button is placed too high, because it doesn’t cover up the white shirt underneath.
Style: It is always the downside of every glossy shiny suit to look creased very, very quickly. It just looks sloppy and as well very careless wearing a formal white shirt open without a tie. And last but not least not very imaginative not adding a bit of colour to that outfit. You just don’t wear a grey formal suit just with a white shirt- especially not to casual event at the beach.
Oveall Rating: 1* One Star
Zoe Saldana

Colour: NO- too light- too icy in tone- too blue for her colouring.
Shape: There is nothing to say about the shape of the dress. It works for her petite frame- it shows off her waist- gives her a nice decoltee and the the A -line hem is not overpowering her frame.
Style: There is a lot to say to here:
1. The dress is too youthful for her- it is ageing her big time- she has got the body for it, but the face doesn’t go with it.
2. It is a pretty day time dress – more appropriate for 5th avenue- then for an LA event on the beach
3. Who gave her the shoes for this dress- they don’t seem to match in style, colour, personality- they look like bandages around her feet.
4. You don’t wear your hair open breezy with such structured dress
5. Where are her accessories which need to go with such dress- the look looks so incomplete.
6. Who told her to pose like this? She is not an innocent teenager posing the first time for photographer.
Sorry Zoe, but it looks all very sad.
