We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best – and worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Julianne Hough, who took a risk in a Georges Hobeika Couture dress over cropped pants at the Safe Haven premiere in N.Y.C. this week:

Julianne Hough, I have to say, I like you. I think you are a classy breath of fresh air. On the red carpet you always remain cool and composed, and during interviews you are natural and refreshing.

Let’s start with your hair: I love the color! The natural buttercream lowlights paired with cool, icy, platinum highlights is so on trend. You’re also a little rooty and I love it. As far as your makeup goes, bravo! Love that subtle pop of color on your lips and the cat eye whisps are alluring, yet not overdone.

As far as your attire goes, I will say I was briefly thrown for a loop. I never would have thought to pair this gray-and-white Georges Hobeika Couture dress with cropped pants. It’s not really something I would personally do myself, but I think you are pulling it off.

You’re young, carefree and have the opportunity to make yourself standout and leave a presence. Yes, the look is different and not for everybody, but these are the kind of decisions and choices that define us as individuals and set us apart from the norm. Keep up the good work Julianne, but next time I would consider losing the pants.

Well that’s the look as it appeared on the runway, so she didn’t exactly pair it with the pants. The pants were a part of it. Is it for everyone, no, but I think she’s pulling it off.

Oh look another chick with an opinion about the way another woman dresses. Everything she says is negative most of the time sounds like she’s just insecure with herself and has to pick apart everyone else for her own personal satisfaction. And surprise everyone feeds into it.

She looks much older.
