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

Best dressed: Bridget Moynahan

As SJP's nemesis Natasha in Sex and the City, she was the epitome of cool Waspish perfection.

You knew that you were meant to hate her for keeping Big and Carrie apart, but you couldn't help envying her fabulous wardrobe. And a decade later, that look is still wearing well for actress Bridget Moynahan.

She's elegance personified in this bang on trend Monique L'huillier lacy dress, teamed with our favourite Louboutin heels.

But don't be fooled by her calm demeanour -- it hides a turbulent past.

Bridget used to date US football star Tom Brady, and actually announced she was pregnant with his child after Brady had hooked up with supermodel Gisele.

That must have led to some interesting conversations...

This week, the Brazilian bombshell, who since married Brady, has been shaking her bikini-clad booty at the Rio carnival.

Despite their similar taste in men, somehow we can't see the two lovely ladies having too much in common.

Worst dressed: Tess Daly

Hmm, this is a toughie. You have to feel for Tess Daly, don't you?

There she was, with her seemingly perfect life. Married to TV's Vernon Kay, mother of two gorgeous little girls and paid to wear glamorous dresses and hang out with Bruce Forsyth.

(Okay, so maybe spending time with George Clooney would be more fun but you know you'd have to be at the top of your game all the time, whereas Brucie would just dote on you.)

But then she, along with everyone else she knew and quite a few she didn't, discovered that her husband had been sending racy texts to a Page Three model.


So a year later, who would blame the former model for wanting to show the world that she's still got it in the sexy stakes.?And kudos to Tess for working two of this season's hottest trends, aka colour blocking and '70s glamour.

But oh dear, this MaxMara jumpsuit may look quite eye-catching from the front (particularly if you've always wanted to channel your inner oompa loompa), but it's not exactly flattering from behind. And as for those shoes...

Sorry Tess, we're stunned by you, but not in a good way.
