Friday’s Fashion Fails: Courtney Love and Denise Richards

Oops… even celebrities get it wrong sometimes! We’re telling you why Courtney Love and Denise Richards’ fashions fell short in our brand new weekly feature. Learn from the celebrities’ fashion mistakes!

Whether you love or loathe her offbeat style, Courtney Love certainly turns heads and her latest outing was no exception. Frances Bean Cobain’s mom stepped out in NYC this week to celebrate the launch of Salvatore Ferragamo’s Signoria, but when she hit the pink carpet, not everything was coming up roses.

This isn’t a total disaster for the Hole rocker, but it seems Courtney came down with a classic case of fashion trend overload. Check out how she paired her black leather dress with a leopard jacket. Sure, leather and animal print are both still hot for spring, but try one at a time.

And let’s talk about those shoes! Did she borrow them from her daughter’s closet? They don’t fit her feet and her heels are hanging off the ends. Plus, it looks like she could trip over the laces any second and take a tumble. Remember ladies, if the shoe fits, buy it… and if it doesn’t, keep on shopping!

Finally, her edgy ensemble was a bit out of place at this party. Other lovely ladies at the upscale bash such as Emma Roberts and Kate Mara kept it classy and chic, wearing blouses and cocktail dresses. Save the leather and leopard for a rock concert next time!

The final verdict? Courtney should stick to trying one bold fashion trend at a time and finding footwear in her size.

Denise Richards

Denise Richards stepped out in Los Angeles wearing an asymmetrical printed maxi dress, which is a fashion trend we totally love. Maxi dresses are comfortable and versatile summer wardrobe staples. They can easily take you from day to night and the beach to a bash. The aqua snakeskin print Denise is wearing is on trend, too, but there’s one major problem with this Belle Gray for QVC maxi Denise wore: It makes her look totally shapeless!

Look, we all know the single mom of three and one-time Bond babe has a rocking body, but you really can’t tell in this dress. By simply adding a belt, she could show off her slim waist. And never underestimate the importance of tailoring, ladies! If Denise had this dress taken in a bit, it would definitely accentuate her fabulous figure instead of hiding it under too much fabric.

We’ll give Denise props for her footwear, though. The simple silver sandals let the dress’ bold color and pattern take center stage. She could easily wear this to the park for a play date with her adorable daughters or on a dinner date.

The final verdict? We love Denise’s California casual style but adding a belt or getting the maxi dress altered would have made it a home run.
