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

Best dressed: Emma Watson

Hermione, who is Hermione? The demure schoolgirl from Harry Potter has been well and truly forgotten by her alter ego, who has enjoyed a magical transformation to become a proper grown-up glamour puss. But we suspect that prim Hermione might secretly approve.

After all, in the 10 years since Harry's pal made her first appearance on the red carpet, Emma has kept busy studying -- fashion mags and catwalk shows, obviously.

She's learned her lessons well, managing the impressive feat of (usually) shining on the red carpet while also working that cool festival vibe.

She's impressed in her work experience stints too, with modelling assignments for Burberry, collaborations with Alberta Ferretti and appearances as the face of Lancome.

And she's not afraid to experiment either as illustrated by her choice of this fabulous red Valentino mini dress with figure-hugging lace and oh-so-cute bubble skirt. A-plus.



Worst dressed: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

We know that we should hate her.

She's a supermodel turned actress who just happens to be dating a movie action man (it's taking superhuman amount of willpower not to roll our eyes right now!). But at least the Victoria's Secret star doesn't try to kid us that her killer bod is just the result of a few Pilates sessions and cutting out those nasty carbs.

She admitted to having not one, not two, but three personal trainers on call so that she never has an excuse to skip a workout whether she's in London, New York or LA. So we actually have a sneaking admiration for her organisational skills -- and her ambition.

After her acting debut in the demanding role of playing eye candy in the Transformers sequel, she made no secret of her desire to continue working in Hollywood. But it's time she gave herself a break.

After all, practising so much method acting is obviously taking a heavy toll on the poor girl.

Remember this is a woman so lauded for her fashion sense that she's accessorised her outfit with a style award and yet she's dressed as a robot -- one that hadn't even been programmed to let loose on that illogical hemline with a good pair of scissors.
