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

Best Dressed: Berenice Marlhoe

The name's Marlhoe, Berenice Marlhoe.

You may not recognise it yet but, don't worry, you soon will. This scarlet lady is the newest squeeze of 007 and on her way to a multiplex near you very soon.

She may be the latest in a long, long line of spy candy, but Berenice is no one (sugar) hit wonder. Not if she can help it anyway.

After a striking performance in Dior at the BAFTAs, she's wowing her audience at the Jameson Empire Awards in this effortless elegant column dress.

We reckon Mr Bond would certainly be stirred, if not shaken. That is, of course, if he isn't too intrigued by the mystery of Bernenice's missing feet...

Worst dressed: Edith Bowman

Oh Edith, you must have been so scared. We feel for you, we really do. And we wholeheartedly applaud your courage.

After all, it can't be easy to face your fears, put your best smile on and turn up at the premiere of Titanic 3D. But you do know that the iceberg isn't real, don't you?!

Still, it's better to be prepared, and you certainly have that sussed, thanks to your cunning camouflage.

It may appear that you're decked out in an ill-fitting, unflattering mess. But we understand. We know that you're secretly wearing your own lifesaver ... just in case.
