Who's hot or not on the red carpet this week

Elisabeth Moss

She's split up with her husband about five minutes after exchanging vows and she's (allegedly) embroiled in a feud with her so-so glamorous co-star. It's rare that we feel sorry for a Hollywood actress, but you have to have a little compassion for Elisabeth Moss.

After all, it can't be easy being the dowdy one in the Mad Men line-up... And now the gorgeous Christina Hendricks is getting more screentime as her curves become increasingly popular off set. Faced with such a double whammy, what is a girl to do? Change her look, obviously!

As blondes really do have more fun, of course she was going to swap her mousy hair for lighter locks. We certainly approve.

Still, how's this for irony? In one episode of the stylish show, Christina Hendricks' character advises ad exec Peggy, played by Moss, that how a woman dresses and behaves will directly affect the way men in the office treat her. She reckons, and she's right, that it's time for dowdy Peggy to grow up.

It seems that Elisabeth paid attention to Joan's wise words. Her Bibhu Mohapatra Resort 2011 gown is undoubtedly lovely, and it would look stunning if only someone else was wearing it.

Unfortunately, we're sad to say that its peach colour is actually quite unflattering on Elisabeth. But we appreciate the effort, and we're just sure she'll do better next time, if only she embraces her dramatic side.

Jessica Alba

The word on the street is that Jessica Alba is to strip for her next movie.

Well, we're sure that the boys will disagree but actually we quite like to see Ms Alba with her clothes on! Especially when she's wearing such a fabulous (and futuristic) LBD as this one by Cushnie et Ochs, teamed with chunky jewellery and to-die-for pumps.

She looks a million dollars. It's not surprising really; after all, she is married to a man named Cash ... Still, we like Jessica.

We may not be able to recall many of her films, apart from the aptly named Sin City, but any celebrity who admits that losing her pregnancy weight was a bitch and that she needed to wear a girdle afterwards gets the thumbs up from us. And Jessica always dresses to impress -- the paparazzi will never uncover shots of her slobbing out. We definitely approve.
