Best Dressed, in an Organza Sack: Kerry Washington

Wearing a mauve Lanvin dress to a dinner party celebrating her new Elle cover, Kerry Washington effectively pulled off a look that most girls cannot: a giant organza sack. The ensemble also stood up next to supermodel Iman’s sleek white suit—a true feat.

Best Dressed, Living Doll: Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman’s doll-like, perfectly molded veneer may be a turnoff to some, but you can’t fault the actress for looking pretty flawless in this Dior Haute Couture electric floral dress, which she wore on opening night at Cannes.

Worst Dressed, Flaming Ruffles: David Hasselhoff

To his credit, David Hasselholf has never really been praised as a style icon. However, that does not excuse the magenta ruffled tuxedo shirt that he wore to the Cannes premiere of Jeune et Jolie on Thursday.

Worst Dressed, Picnic Table: Chloe Moretz

Worst Dressed, Traveling Nightmare: Baz Luhrmann

One would think that Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann would have enough money to purchase a high-profile travel wardrobe. But Luhrmann took a more relaxed approach when arriving at Nice’s airport for the Cannes Film Festival on Monday. Apparently, that meant a neck purse.

Worst Dressed, Disco Reincarnated: Jennifer Morrison

For Morrison, the Los Angeles premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness apparently meant dressing like an ice cadet at Studio 54.
