No, Christian Louboutin is not turning 20 years old but he did, in fact, just recently celebrate 20 years of his iconic, amazingly crafted, distinction of shoes- the one and only Christian Louboutin brand high heels. Additionally, he launched his new self-titled book which is a must-have for anyone who is the ultimate fan of his lacquer red soled works of modern art. He has just the perfect recipe for designing and creating sky-high stilettos that sustain the ability to still appear classy as well as sexy. The book contains dramatic still-life photography, fancy pop-up work, and a sassy foldout cover. It seems as though everything that this man puts his mind to and hands on is instant high fashion and sinfully desirable by women everywhere who know a thing or two about contemporary style.

Those in attendance at the anniversary party included celebrity Louboutin addicts such as the Olsen twins, Calvin Klein, Amanda Brooks, Lauren Remington Platt, and more. After mingling with friends and fans over talk of footwear, pumps, and platforms and doing more than a few book signings, he wined and dined with pals like Blake Lively, Alicia Keys, and Swizz Beatz.

The only thing more exciting than knowing which nominees will become award winners is wondering who is going to make the “best” and “worst” lists for their fashion choices. It continues to boggle my mind that so many A-list celebrities still wear some of the most atrocious designs I have ever seen. I hate to say it, but it makes you wonder why these rich and famous starlets don’t hire a stylist, and if they have one, what the hell was going through said stylist’s mind at the time. On the contrary, some stars looked absolutely stunning in their gowns and everything from head to toe was utterly perfect. Let’s take a moment and honor those who actually give a damn about what they’re wearing. My top three choices for best dressed celebrities are Nina Dobrev, Kelly Osbourne, and Heidi Klum.

Style Stunners

Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan. Look out, Red Carpet fashion at its finest! Nina rocks the red right out of this dress. The sweetheart neckline with the layered hemline on this curvaceous number makes her look like a goddess. It's simple with some flare at the bottom and it's not too much so that it's swallowing her small frame. So lovely!

Kelly Osbourne in J. Mendel. Who would have thought that Kelly Osbourne would ever look so incredibly stunning?! She looks amazing in this burgundy crimson mermaid-style gown. The strap placements and the shape of the dress is to-die-for on her. This is going to be a knock-out color for the season. She looks amazing.

Heidi Klum in Christian Siriano. She looks fashion-forward and straight off the runway. I think it's a classy move to represent a former "Project Runway" winner's piece. I love the skirt of the dress, the shoes, and this color against her skin tone.

As for the other end of the fashion continuum, my top three choices for worst looks at the Emmy Awards goes to Christina Hendricks, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Katie Holmes.

Fashion Fatalities

Christina Hendricks in Johanna Johnson. This washed-out number gives no mercy to her fair skin tone and fiery locks. A curvy woman like this should know how to play up her curves in a tasteful manner, not exploit them for all they're worth. It's cleavage-baring and very shapeless. The overall look cries for too much attention. Shame on her stylist!

Gwyneth Paltrow in Pucci. Let's face it; no one looks good in a two-piece "dress". This semi-translucent Indian-inspired piece was all wrong for this kind of event. It cuts her in half and makes her look boxy and just completely unflatters her entire body. This is horrible on so many levels. I would also like to see her do something a little more edgy and different with her look. She always looks the same to me, with drab, straight locks and simple makeup. She needs to pump up the volume a bit.

Katie Holmes in Calvin Klein. This ill-fitting, too-casual dress makes her look frumpy and does nothing for her figure at all. Her hair is an absolute mess and the look lacks elegance overall. Not to mention that horribly placed waist-belt.
