Kristen Bell

Kristen Bell decided to dress as the Wicked Witch of the West for her big Veronica Mars premiere in NYC. Her strapless black dress is actually Monique Lhuillier. The designer is known for making beautiful bridal and red carpet dresses, but this gothic version isn't our favorite.

While the shape of the actual bottom dress is suited for Kristen's petite figure, what's with the sheer mosquito net layer on top of it? It looks like the kind of thing Angelina Jolie would wear if she was a beekeeper. The extra layer adds unnecessary bulk to the actress' svelte frame.

The final verdict? This black LBD would be much better if she ditched the top layer and just kept it simple. We do like her Jimmy Choo shoes and we're kinda digging the natural hair the new mom is sporting too.

Sarah Jessica Parker

OMG SJP! Sarah Jessica Parker stepped out for the launch of her new shoe line at Nordstrom Aventura in this crazy getup. The strappy sandals she's wearing are the least of our worries. What is going on with her multi-layered outfit?

The crimson lace strapless dress is cute on its own and shows off the Sex and the City star's tiny waist. But why in the world would she put a baggy white collared blouse underneath it? Wearing a shirt under a tank wasn't cute in the '90s and it's still not cute now. In another throwback fashion nod, she's also sporting stirrup leggings, which were all the rage... back in the 1980s, that is.

The final verdict? We know your HBO series started back in 1998 but that doesn't mean your fashion has to be stuck in a time warp. We will say that her long locks look super shiny and healthy, so well done on the beauty front.
