Lena Dunham, Jennifer Lopez, Pamela Anderson and more could all use a helping hand in the fashion department.

There’s a fine line between "if you’ve got it flaunt it" and just plain putting it all out there. J.Lo has a body many, myself included, would kill for–but this micro mini is too much. Honestly, what happens when she sits down?! A few more inches of hemline would have added a little decorum to this dress while still highlighting the judge's enviable gams.

Do you need a wild graphic print and an asymmetrical hemline? Me thinks not. Pass the scissors; a simple trim of the skirt to make it all above the knee would be the quickest fix to make the young actress shine.

From the bold print to bright colours, to the distressed denim and amazing sneakers, this outfit is everything I love in real life. But somehow the end result on Rita is a little too out there even for me. A simple white tee may have taken it back just a notch, from crazy to creative.

Every woman’s wardrobe needs an LBD, but you need the right one to make a major impact. The blocky cutout neckline of Rebel’s dress doesn’t flatter her curves. One with more elegant lines across her décolletage could have made the Night at the Museum star a knockout.

A cape is a statement-making piece of outerwear so it best fit you to a T, and you don’t need to add much else to it to complete the picture. When done right it can look amazing. Falter, which Tyna has, and it gets a little too kooky. The veteran of the small screen would have faired better in a cape that was three-quarters in length and without shoulder pads (much too '80s). And pairing it with a simple scarf, even a monochromatic print, would have played nicely into the less-is-more rule.

Black and white has the potential to be an ultra chic combo. Unfortunately, Christine’s dress is lacking punch. The white band on the shoulder looks like an errant nametag and isn’t a strong enough detail to balance out the split panel skirt. A more graphic print, such as a geometric tile, would have given The Good Wife co-star a fashionable edge.

There are three things I’m not on board with about this look. 1) The black panel that cuts across the chest. Continuing it up towards shoulders would have created a more flattering line. 2) The length of this skirt. It’s a smidge too long, squashing her from the knees down. 3) The blocky heels. Had the skirt been shorter, these heavier heels might have worked on the star.

I love the top half of this dress: the high neck and 90-degree sleeveless cut looks ultra modern on the star. But the bottom half, with its asymmetrical skirt and peek-a-boo red panel, seems to be from a bygone era. A simple pencil skirt in red would have made for a strong and contemporary look from head to toe.

You can see up-and-coming actress Genesis in the new action flick Run All Night. You can also see a lot of her here in this overly sheer dress. Sheer madness has taken over on the red carpet at the moment, and the winning looks always manage to balance revealing and concealing. This dress would have benefited from more of the latter.

Fringe is always a tricky trend to pull off, on the wrong garment it can easily look dated. As a more modern take for the actress, I would have flipped this look by choosing denim on top by way of a chambray shirt and gone with fringe on the bottom in the form of a sleek leather skirt.

This leading lady favours clean lines, but the there’s one too many at work here. The black belt, with hanging end on one side, and the blue glossy trim of the dress create distracting lines. I would have chosen a simple black belt that didn’t interfere with the detail of the dress.

While statement details can take an outfit to the next level, you don’t need to pile them all on at once. Choosing one or two will suffice, which is why Carrie’s beaded halter neckline, chandelier earrings, statement belt and chunky cocktail ring add up to overload. To refine this outfit on the Dead Rising: Watchtower star, I would have nixed the earrings and chosen a belt with subtle detail.

As a rising songstress it’s only natural for Raquel Sofia to make a few fashion missteps. The boldly coloured pants are on target but a less embellished top would have put them in the spotlight where they belong and created a stronger overall look. One more thing: trade in the black bag for a silver one for hit of glam.

This one needs some major style help. It starts with a dress that looks like a remnant of flimsy lamé fabric, continues with a questionable choice of hot pink belt, takes a pit stop with a graphic striped bag and ends with matching gold heels. A dress with more structure would have been my first move here, trading the deep V neckline for a sleeveless fit or even a reasonable mini skirt. Then I’d have played up the metallic angle with hits of silver or black, no pops of colour or prints allowed.

This colour palette is certainly an acquired taste, but it’s the proportions here that I’d like to alter. With such a voluminous top, a slim skirt or tailored pants would have been lovely on Rockefeller, an international fashion exec, and former assistant to the one and only Anna Wintour.

Proof that putting a bird (or two) on it doesn’t always work, this elaborate dress seems ill suited to bombshell Salma. The proportions of the skirt in particular, being so wide and hovering at midi length, are off putting. And doesn’t it look like it weighs one hundred pounds? Going for full sweeping floor length may have given this look the elegance and grace it demands.

Chain mail and fringe and stripes, oh my! The Canadian R&B recording artist put a lot of elements into play at the risk of losing a sense of shape. A smaller bib necklace would have been a good choice to elongate her upper body, and a jacket with fringe as a detail rather than all over would have highlighted her figure.

It would be easy to hate on this fuzzy coat, but closer inspection reveals that it’s not a terrible topper. It’s just made to look that way with everything else in the actress's outfit. Worn with contrasting tones and a bold print (i.e., black trousers and a top with a punchier print) would have transformed the actress's coat. And I’d pull it all together with a belt over top, too.

Taraji P. Henson
I love this colour on her (and the sandals are to die for!), but this dress is a little too similar to something we might find in Cookie Lyon’s wardrobe (a.k.a Taraji’s character on Empire). A sheath dress in a non-stretch fabric or even a body-con skirt paired with a pretty blouse would have been the sophisticated option I’m looking for.

One must tread carefully into the land of completely sheer tops. Making a wrong move throws the whole thing off. And, sadly, this Brit star makes two. First off, there’s nothing flattering about this grey-blue colour. Secondly, I’m not keen on the prim details, like the high collar and ruffled front. A standard collared shirt in black, or even deep charcoal, would have veered this look in the right direction.
