Rate or Slate: Solange Knowles in Carven vs. Brooklyn Decker in J.Mendel vs. Dianna Agron in Alice + Olivia
This week’s rate or slate brought up some head-turners, but not necessarily for all the right reason, might we add.
Solange Knowles, famed for her cool style sense complete with an eccentric kick in the behind for conventional fashion, showed up at the Hennessy ‘Wild Rabbit’ Campaign Launch Event in a tribal inspired Carven SS’12 number.
Brooklyn Decker has been doing the promo rounds for her latest film, Battleship, also starring Rihanna, in some rather impressive ensembles, but we’re stuck on this J.Mendel Fall 2012 lamé sleeved dress she wore to the movie’s Sydney premiere – yay or nay?
Glee star Dianna Agron sported a floral Alice + Olivia Fall 2012 dress for her guest appearance on The View. Does Dianna rock hyper-floral, or is the coat strangling the plant life on her dress?
It’s over to our Style Jury….
Fashion News Ed says:
Brooklyn Decker: ‘Despite not being terribly fond of the gold sleeves, I love the rest ofBrooklyn’s outfit, and I’m really pleased she left her golden locks flowing for a more playful look.’
Dianna Agron: ‘When she took the coat off, Dianna looked flawless which is why she is my favourite out of the three ladies. Although the coat and the up-do make the look a bit office-y, she looked cute as a button and uber-stylish when she took it off which is what I am basing my opinion on.’
Solange Knowles: ‘I usually love Solange’s bold fashion choices, but something isn’t right here… I think the length of the dress, the pumped up cleavage and the shoes all contribute in one way or another. Sorry, Solange!’

Verdict: RATE to the power of one!
Brooklyn Decker in J.Mendel is this week’s clear winner, closely followed by Dianna. We’re definitely digging these starlets’ style but definitely have some words of advice:Brooklyn, leave off the lamé next time and Dianna ditch the outerwear when donning such a gorgeous dress. As for Solange, we love it when you do conventional, not crikey, that’s cringe worthy! A rare faux pas for a style queen, we’ll let you off this once, Ms. Knowles!
