Celeb: Jaime King
Designer: Peter Som (skirt and top), Christian Louboutin (heels), Melinda Maria (bangles)
Event: Rembrandt Hollywood Party, Los Angeles
Verdict: I love this Peter Som ensemble on Jaime! Love it! This pale blue bustier-style top and tweed skirt combo is so incredibly feminine and pretty….it has a sort of retro housewife vibe. And the actress followed through with the girly style all the way down to her feet with pointy-toe bow topped Christian Louboutin pumps. Minimal makeup, soft hair and a few Melinda Maria bangles completed this lovely look. This is the perfect outfit for a casual afternoon event: not too over-the-top for daytime, but perfectly appropriate and still fashionable. I love it!

Alrighty, then. What do you guys think? …..
Love it or Loathe it?
Celeb: Allison Williams
Designer: Peter Som (dress), Jimmy Choo (sandals)
Event: 9th Annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, New York City
Verdict: Well, I really like Allison on HBO’s Girls, but I am not totally liking her in this Peter Som dress. There is just too much going on here for my taste. The color of this dress is actually really pretty, but I just don’t care for the top part. It’s too busy. The straps are too big. I think this dress would be significantly improved if the straps that are hanging down on her shoulders were removed completely. Then this dress would look pretty darn good. It’s a shame about the dress, because the styling here is good: her hair and makeup look really nice, her jewelry is simple and the shoes are awesome. But BAM! Those straps/sleeves are not cute.
Which brings me back to my original question: Love it or loathe it?
Pretty in plum peplum….
Celeb: Lucy Hale
Designer: Peter Som (dress), Brian Atwood (pumps)
Event: 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards, Toronto
Verdict: Well, to be honest, this isn’t my favorite look for Lucy. While I think this plum-colored peplum dress by Peter Som is really cute, I am just not loving it on her. I mean, sure, she looks nice. But something is off about this, IMO. Maybe it is partially because I don’t really care for the nude pumps paired with the plum and black dress? Not sure. Overall, Lucy looks pretty. But I just don’t love this. Know what I mean?

Amy Poehler hit up the Emmy’s in a royal blue gown….
Amy chose a Fall 2011 Peter Som dress. Me no likey. At all. This dress looks like faux leather (pleather!) or some kind of tacky vinyl material to me. I just don’t think it is pretty, and I think it looks a bit too small for her. The sleeves and chest area are super tight, and it looks as though she wouldn’t be able to lift or move her arms. Yeah, I am just not feelin’ this.
But, in her defense, I don’t like it on the runway, either:
I mean, sure, it looks better on the runway model, but I still don’t like it. This Peter Som creation is just not my cup of tea!
Amy’s Emmy grade: C (definitely could’ve been worse, but it is just very average!)
What do you think? Love it? Loathe it? Somewhere in the middle?
