This week, we round up two looks we were loving and one we’re less crazy about — check ’em out below and let us know your faves in the comments!

Love It: Sarah Jessica Parker’s Embellished Dress: Let me start off by saying that I am not into SJP’s stockings. Last I checked she still had the most amazing legs ever. But what I am into is, well, everything else — starting with this Elie Saab Haute Couture lace dress, which is nothing short of heavenly. I can just imagine her eyes lighting up, as mine do, over all the pretty embellishment (it’s adorned with sequins and Swarovski crystals!). Plus I love the peek of her black bra and the waist-cinching ivory belt. The look is a tad sweet, a tad sexy and totally perfectly accessorized with a stack of bangles from her own brand. –Jackie Fields, Beauty Writer
Lily Collins Backless Moment: I never thought I would have such strong feelings about a fire-engine red turtleneck gown, but everything about Lily’s Solace London dress — worn to the Love, Rosie premiere in Hollywood — is mesmerizing. The fit on her body is perfect, the high-neckline really makes the open back feel that much more dramatic and the sleek slick-back hair pulls everything together. I even tracked the dress down in black on Shopbop, and if I had a place to wear it to I consider spending the $425. –Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor
Hate It: Marion Cotillard’s Dior Disaster: I don’t know what Dior has against their spokeswomen, but I can’t understand a world in which they send their more flattering stuff to random celebrities and then punish Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence and poor Marion Cotillard with their weirder pieces. Case in point: This unfortunate Bermuda shorts-and-velvet-coat outfit the actress for to the NYFF premiere of Time Out of Mind. The outfit is awkward on its own, but her clearly uncomfortable face brings the look down even more. –Alex Apatoff, Senior Style Editor
