Who is a style queen and who should be taken away by the fashion police this week?

Worst dressed: Ashley Greene

Don't you just hate it when life tries to imitate art and gets it so horribly wrong?

Poor Ashley Greene. She may star as the fashion-obsessed Alice in the phenomenon that is the Twilight movies -- yawn, do you really think we care about some soppy teen saga (well, actually, yes, and we're in Team Edward, since you ask!).

But although the actress has admitted that she's become much more sartorially aware thanks to the oh-so-stylish vamp, Ashley is walking proof that a little bit of knowledge isn't always a good thing.

She's appearing on the red carpet with co-star Robert Pattinson for the latest instalment of the vampire romance.

Pattinson is, of course, well known for his dangerous liaison with leading lady Kristen Stewart who happens to have a penchant for Chanel. So Ashley, not to be outshone, quite rightly decided to bring out the big guns. But her Givenchy dress with its peplum effect (the latest must-have accessory, y'know) is just the slightest bit too figure-hugging, its hem-line just a tad too long.

Long lank locks, a boring black bag and heels to most certainly live for add up to a look no vampire would be seen dead in. No fangs!

Best dressed: Keira Knightley

Oh, this was a brave move. The two-toned dress has been out and about lately, most notably on Kate Winslet who isn't exactly renowned for her fashion forward wardrobe.

But Keira makes the look so much edgier, thanks to her very of-the-moment wet-look hairstyle -- one that's straight off this season's catwalks.

The actress hasn't always shone on the red carpet, but she's more than made up for past disappointments with this Roksanda Ilincic couture dress, with its criss-cross draped bodice and straight skirt.

Not only is it suitably dramatic -- well, she is at the premiere of A Dangerous Mind -- but it manages the impressive feat of giving the twig-like Ms Knightley the illusion of a few necessary curves.

We think we might just love it.
