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

Best dressed: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

She may be new to acting, but this is one beauty who looks like she's been sashaying up movie premiere red carpets for years.

In fact, Rosie exudes such confidence, it's almost as if she transformed into Jessica Rabbit!

The star of the new Transformers movie, Dark of the Moon, Rosie is making the most of her time in the spotlight and taking full advantage of her leading lady's wardrobe.

Pictured here in New York, the Victoria's Secret model embodied old-school Hollywood glamour in a glittering Antonio Berardi dress. Complete with sweeping hair, pouting lips, Christian Louboutin heels and a split to the thigh, the 24-year-old Brit has style know-how well beyond her young years.

We just hope her sparkling fashion form can distract the critics who've been slamming her acting debut -- this is one lady we'd like to see more of!

Worst dressed: Julia Roberts

Oh Julia, what happened!? Where's the glamour? Where's the glitz? Where's our pretty woman!?

At your own movie premiere we expect a lot more than a tailored suit. After years of practice we really thought you had the hang of this red carpet lark, but it looks like we were wrong.

The star of Larry Crowne, alongside Tom Hanks, Julia opted for a midnight-blue tweed trouser suit this week in LA. Now it may be Gucci, and it is indeed a fine suit, but this is certainly no place for office-wear.

The mum of three and Oscar winner still sports her dazzling smile and adds a little colour to the ensemble with a green beaded necklace, but it all just fails to impress on this occasion.

Julia, you may have moved on but we still want the fairytale.
