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

Best dressed: Juliette Lewis

Juliette Lewis is known for her unconventional film roles and the garish spandex costumes she wears with her rock band The Licks, so seeing her dressed up in such a delicate outfit makes us positively proud.

She looks effortlessly chic in this lovely lilac dress, and her patent purple shoes add a touch of her rock-chick persona to the look.

She keeps her hair loose and natural, remaining true to her unfussy style.

The soft ruffles at the shoulder and ankle are ultra-feminine and balance each other out.

Pastel shades can be risky as they can wash you out, especially with pale skin like Lewis's.

However, she avoids looking too pale by paying special attention to her complexion, giving herself rosy cheeks and so ensuring that she looks the picture of vitality.

The result is a soft, feminine and very natural look.

Worst dressed: Beverley Knight

We've all been there. You've got a red carpet event and nothing to wear.

You want to wear something sexy, something young and trendy, but most importantly something that will catch the eye of a photographer.

It doesn't matter if you've got an MBE for services to music; that's not going to impress the paparazzi when you're battling with sequinned celebrities for your shot at the limelight. What you need is a dress that's a little bit sexy and a little risqué.

Sadly, Beverley Knight went for shock factor and forgot about the small question of style, opting for an outfit she might wear to the gym.

The grey jersey is far too casual for a red carpet event while the top half of the outfit just looks like a wardrobe malfunction.

Beverley knows the power of a good pair of classic black heels but her Louboutins are not enough to save the day.
