Fab or Fug: Red Carpet Whites

Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow both showed up for the opening of Iron Man 2 sporting their finest white outfits. Scarlett wore Armani Prive and Gwyneth wore Giorgio Armani. We think that Mr. Armani clearly played some favorites in the style stakes here, don't you think?

Scarlett's dress was sophisticated but youthful; the structured ruffles were eye-catching without overpowering her. Neutral silver shoes and a bejeweled clutch complete the look.

As for Gwynnie P, well...we like it from the waist up. We're not against formal shorts per se, but this length short, combined with a jacket with an elongated cut, somehow reminds us of 1991. And we like the shoes on their own, but they look entirely too casual when paired with a white sparkly shorts suit, don't you think?

Who wore their whites best- ScarJo or Gwyneth?

I think those shoes on GP make her legs look short. I think they would make anyone's legs look short! I get where she is going here with the jacket and shorts, but it looks kind of call girlish. Think Pretty Woman or Heidi Fleiss.

I adore both looks! Scarlett's dress is stunning.

ScarJo, for sure. Gwenyth just looks seriously washed out and sad. And those booties -- no! Reminds me of the old fashion tip to never pair dark socks with lighter pants or shoes. It's just off. That pair even in a nude would be an improvement.
