Which Renee/Carolina Herrera Look is Most Fab?

When I saw Renee last week at the Met's Costume Institute Gala I was not surprised she was wearing her red carpet favorite: Carolina Herrera. I really liked her sky blue and black beaded gown but something looked familiar. It wasn't her new blonde short cut, which is totally cute, it was...something. I did a little digging and aha! I knew I'd seen not only that pose somewhere before but with another Herrera dress with a similar kangaroo pocket. The second picture was from March when she attended a private dinner honoring Nina Ricci designer Olivier Theyskens.

Is this a fashion faux pas? We know some stars have their faves, but I don't know how I feel about this. With all the amazing fashion options they have, and with designers practically throwing clothes at them, I find it a bit frustrating when anyone plays it safe. It just says to me their heart isn't in fashion, and they just stick to what works for their body. What do you think?

It's great that she's found a style that suits her...she looks particularly good in the blue dress. Although I must say I'm not a great fan of her as as find that she's always trying too hard, she doesn't appear to look natural on the red carpets!!

I have to say that I would prefer to see her in other things and designers at these events BUT she has found something that works for her and looks great! It's like me and Fendi bags, I love all other sorts of bags but I will blown an entire paycheck to have a Fendi. To each thier how I guess.

the blue gown looks soo much better on her. at least she looks alive. shes already pale and wearing silver/grey just washes her out. she looks sick in it.

Neither, I'm sure that something different could make her body look so much better

I like the blue color, but hate the black things on the dress. I think they look like glued on plastic spiders..

I like the longer dress better. The cocktail;there is something off about it. Odd pair of patterns maybe?

I like the blue one better, but either way no human being should have pokey shoulders like that. It's just unnatural.

...but the blue dress is definetly gorgeous! if you hemmed it shorter on the bottom it'd make a great cocktail dress as well. ♥

my friend and I were talking about her last night. We cannnnnnot stand her scrunched up face now... b/c we compared it to Jerry Maguire and she didn't look like that! :/ hm.

I prefer the long blue; but the other is not bad on her.

I actually like both. Because she does have small hips, accentuating them with the pocket detail actually gives her hip area some definition.

I really like her........ In my book there is really nothing that she doesn't wear well!!!! :)

these are pretty dresses but she ALWAYS chooses Caroline Herrera. but then again, whenever i like something, i usually stick with the same thing over and over again so i don't really blame her. (i'm mainly thinking of my obsession with crunchy spicy tuna rolls!)

how is this a fashion faux pas? because she likes a designer?

I really like the blue dress. She's a little more tan in that one, the black dress makes her look too washed out.

Thank you missnomi we posted at the same time- hips comment agreed! On another note I can see why some celebs opt for "safe" fashion choices, taking risks and ending up a 'best dressed' would be fun but I could see how it would be crushing to end up on the cover of a mag. as 'worst dressed.'

even with the same detailing, they look like pretty different dresses to me.

The shoes in the second pic are awesome! She is a petite person but I think that there is something about the blue dress that makes it even more apparent, I think it is the black detailing on the sides, it makes her look even LESS curvier then she is and is unflattering.

Sorry Fab, but so what if her heart is nog in fashion?She's an actress, not a designer! And on a related note: I don't really think she dresses for her body type with these dresses, as she's very small in the hips and the detailing around the pockets just tends to emphasise that (especially the blue one)...
