Red Carpet Wrap: Best and worst dressed

Who is a style queen and who should be taken away by the fashion police this week?
Best dressed celeb: Paula Patton
So, here’s the dilemma. You’ve just starred with Tom Cruise in the latest Mission Impossible movie, and now it’s time to glam up for the premiere.
But how do you upstage the biggest name in Hollywood, who happens to be bringing along his equally famous wife Katie Holmes?
Well, Paula Patton found the perfect dress to make sure all eyes were on her at the premiere of Ghost Protocol in New York.
The multi-coloured sparkly patchwork dress by Pucci brought the right amount of glitz to the event, and the scattered pink feathers added a touch of fun to the whole ensemble.
The uplifting cleavage Paula modelled also helped distract attention from Hollywood’s golden couple. Well, who can blame a girl for using all her natural arsenal when it comes to red carpet warfare?
Worst dressed celeb: Paula Abdul
Usually one for short skirts and lots of sparkle, Paula Abdul opted for a more conservative look at a recent X Factor USA event.
Simon Cowell’s stateside sidekick donned a Louis Verdad suit for the occasion.
Now maybe Paula was trying to show Simon that she means business, and really, the suit would look perfectly fine at a more informal event.
But when you’re appearing alongside a former Pussycat Doll, you really should make more of an effort. And then there’s the blatant plug of the show’s sponsor Pepsi as a crystalencrusted Pepsi can bag hung by Paula’s side.
Really Paula, next time leave the product placement at home — we like our advertising Straight Up.
