Best Dressed, Prison Stripes; Beyoncé

What better way to quash pregnancy rumors than with a snug crop top? Beyoncé took the intelligently plotted plunge at Kanye West’s birthday dinner, held at SoHo’s Miss Lily’s restaurant, and bared her abs in the wake of fetal whispers.

Best Dressed, Tween Dream: Kiernan Shipka

By profession, Kiernan Shipka may play one of Mad Men’s sassiest characters, but it’s her off-camera style that is winning the 13-year-old actress additional piles of praise. Shipka stepped out in Max Mara on Wednesday to collect a Lucy Award with her female costars.

Worst Dressed, But No Less Awesome: Cecily Tyson

Cecily Tyson and the “Thumbprints” that have touched her being were the Tony Awards’ best talking point. As was this ruffled eggplant of a dress by B. Michael America Couture.

Worst Dressed, Bad Example for Retired Ballerinas: Debra Messing

Debra Messing’s Tonys dress, with its sheeny black fabric and crystallized bow, needed no more injection of prim that the rosebud tapestry-type ambience it was already spewing. But then she decided to kindly offer us a peep at her toes, with a pair of country-club vagabond shoes.

Worst Dressed, School’s Out for Summer: Laura Linney

Laura Linney sadly decided to dress like a Phoebe Philo-commissioned schoolgirl at the Crystal +Lucy Awards. It does not work for two reasons: 1. School is out of session for the year, and 2. Laura Linney is not in school to begin with.
