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

Best Dressed: Lea Michele

She's working her usual pose of look at me, aren't I just fabulous? We're so used to it that we almost overlooked Lea's really quite stunning dress.

Almost, but not quite. We are professionals, after all. And while her Glee character can provoke an almost-irresistible desire in us to burst into song and dance around the room, Lea herself normally inspires quite a different feeling.

Not everyone can pull off a diva act, y'know.

Still, we do love this beaded gown from Oscar de la Renta's spring collection, which is the epitome of movie-star glamour. Of course it does help if you can accessorise it with $1m worth of Tiffany jewellery. . .

Lea's a lucky girl. And she wants us all to know that she deserves it too.

Worst Dressed: Geri Halliwell

Anything you can do, I can do better! Do you think it's possible that Geri might just have been humming that ditty, under her breath of course, as she unveiled her swimwear range?

After all, while all the ex-Spices profess to be the best of friends, Geri is definitely the odd one out. And Ginger is bound to feel an itty-bitty tug of envy that her Posh pal has managed to transform herself from WAG extraordinaire to fashion queen, while Ms Halliwell has managed to... Well, we're not sure what she's done actually.

Still, she's always been enthusiastic about her, em, endeavours, so here she is giving it her all at her latest.

She's admitted that she didn't call Victoria for any advice, but she really should have.

We're all in favour of a healthy glow, but not when it's this unnatural. And her plunging navy playsuit, teamed with nude sky-high wedges, might have been fabulous if she was a bright young twenty-something.

Geri, next time, ring Victoria. We're sure she'd be happy to lend you a little something more appropriate.
