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

Best dressed: Jennifer Aniston

Forget Paris and Nicole Richie, for real rivalry, Ange and Jen will never let us down. The world has been divided into Team Jolie and Team Aniston for what seems like forever. And sometimes it's hard to remember just what started it in the first place. We think it might have been over who got their claws into some bloke, but we're not exactly sure. Nor do we care.

As the battle for column inches rages between the all-American sweetheart and the brother-kissing bad girl turned saviour of the known universe, the two have channelled their energies into developing very different red carpet looks.

Ange is all about hard-edged glamour -- we hear on good authority that she attempted a brief flirtation with a smile last month but it wasn't a lasting relationship. While we admit that we have quite the crush on Ange's uncompromising look, we are liking Jen's work too. Not her movies, obviously, we're not rom-com kind of gals!!

But she looks seriously cute and sexy in this strapless Lanvin number. And she's accessorised it perfectly -- healthy glow, on-trend nude sandals and, of course, that hair.

Worst dressed: Kerry Katona

And the lovely Ms Jolie was also out and about trying to flog her latest baby. No, she isn't selling pictures of another rainbow child to the highest bidder (but it's all in the name of charity, y'know). Poor Ange was forced to mingle with mere mortals as she works the publicity trail for new movie Salt.

We're sure she had lots of help to psyche herself up for the ordeal. But we're pretty certain she wasn't expecting to encounter Kerry Katona.

We're not exactly sure who invited her, but the tabloid car crash, who bears a remarkable resemblance to EastEnder Daniella Westbrook (they both like candy) turned up looking, well, sweaty. Someone should really tell her that not all powder is bad for you ... in fact we positively rave about the wonders worked by the translucent facial variety.

And while they're at it, they need to let her know, in the nicest possible way, that a beach kaftan, even if it is designed by Melissa Odabash and costs a whopping £325, isn't really appropriate garb for a premiere, and actually its feather print makes her look like a giant, and terrifying, bird of prey. Scary.
