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

Best dressed: Rosamund Pike

She may have played a Bond girl, but when you think of Rosamund Pike, it's as the type of cool, classy blonde that Hitchcock would definitely have appreciated.

Well, it's that, or else you wonder just what happened between herself and ex finance Joe Wright that he cancelled their wedding after the invitations had been sent out.

But we digress. Lately Rosamund has been doing the publicity rounds for her new film, Made in Dagenham, and she's been loudly decrying her status as an upper-class English rose, saying that her parents may have been very well educated but actually they were broke.

We're not sure if that's inspired her to choose this colourful Mary Katrantzou dress for the London premiere (she was clearly determined to stand out), but we like this vibrant print. A lot.

And as for her purple metallic Nicholas Kirkwood heels, can we have them? Please?

Worst dressed: Jennifer Grey

So, tell us, did you do it? Were you one of those girls? Did you swoon when Johnny Castle (aka Patrick Swayze) said the magic words: "Nobody puts Baby in a corner"?

If so, you're in good company. Millions of us did. And, actually, even now just thinking about that final iconic scene in Dirty Dancing makes us feel a little bit, well, tingly ... .

Those were the days; we dreamed of being swept off our feet by a real man, and we just knew that we'd be just as good a mover as Jennifer Grey if we ever got the chance.

And speaking of Ms Grey, we'd almost forgotten about her. It's amazing what a nose job can do for a woman. As the actress said, she went into the operating room a celebrity and came out anonymous.

And funnily enough, that's exactly what we think of her ensemble. It's not horrendous, that would show a bit of spunk or creativity. It's just bland and boring and certainly isn't appropriate for the premiere of Dancing with the Stars.

Oh, for a bit of sparkle, not those sad little sequins. It seems that she's Grey by name and grey by nature, and belongs in that corner.
