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

Best dressed: Keira Knightley

She was always going to wear Chanel, that's a no-brainer for the face of Coco Mademoiselle perfume.

But Keira's certainly pulled out all the stops for the premiere of her latest movie, Never Let Me Go, which opened the London Film Festival.

The actress hasn't always shone on the red carpet, but she's more than made up for past disappointments with this seriously glamorous beaded couture dress.

Not only is it suitably dramatic, but it manages the impressive feat of giving the twig-like Ms Knightley the illusion of a few necessary curves.

We're in awe.

Worst dressed: Sienna Miller

You just know that Sadie Frost is so relishing this moment. It's all very well being 'friends' with your ex, but it's not quite so much fun when he hooks up with a younger, more attractive piece of eye candy.

One who actually has a career -- well, to be fair, "had a career" might be a tad more accurate. Just what has Ms Miller been doing recently in between dalliances with a married man?

Still "Sluttyenia", as she's been called, emerged from all that fuss and floated serenely back into the arms of her one true love, Jude Law.

Yes, the same Jude who cheated on her with his children's nanny and the very one who became a daddy recently -- after a deep and meaningful fortnight-long fling. No wonder she's smiling, what a lucky girl she is. Although perhaps she wouldn't be quite so happy if she'd looked at herself in the mirror before she went out.

It's truly hard to fathom how this woman managed to persuade a generation of empty-headed dolly birds that mixing a pair of Ugg boots and an oversized belt makes a fashion icon.

Thankfully, she's left the boho look behind but this ill-fitting, over-grown monstrosity isn't exactly an improvement.

By the way, that sound you're hearing? It's Sadie's giggles!
