‘Tis the season to wear big statement earrings — or at least it is if you’re Princess Kate.

It’s not hard to imagine that dressing like Lady Gaga would be somewhat exhausting. On random Tuesdays or to run errands, she’ll wear sheer dresses, things that aren’t even dresses and headpieces that require the strongest neck in the biz. Triple-stacked platform pumps are like her version of those slides you wear to take out the trash. So, when she steps out in a series of looks that are almost normal — not a slab of meat or outré headpiece to be seen — we take notice. To be clear, we’re not saying she hasn’t had any standard Gaga moments this week, but at this stage in the game, Gaga dressing more or less like a normal celeb is more head-turning than anything else she could wear.

Voting on Obsessed or Hot Mess is one of our favorite workday pastimes. And sometimes, we’ll even take it a step further and forward a photo around the office for some immediate snap judgment from the team. Once in a blue moon, though, we see a look so polarizing that we have to bring them to you for evaluation. Today is one of those days for three very different stars.

We all have agreed to throw out the rule “no white after Labor Day,” right? A great pair of white pants or a cozy white sweater just works so well into the fall. But lately stars have been taking it to an extreme, wearing flirty little sundresses out and about with mere days to go before November. We’re divided on this trend, so we thought we’d put it up to a reader vote.

Remember when we said there were some debates happening when we put together our Best Dressed issue? Well another one of those debates is happening right now over one of the ladies on the list: Jennifer Lopez. The one thing the whole staff can agree on? She’s fearless when it comes to her style. Okay, and one more thing — she definitely doesn’t look 45. But two editors have very differing views on one of her latest look: a blue leather DSquared2 snakeskin mini dress, worn with matching heels, purse and even blue eyeshadow to the American Idol XIV photo call in N.Y.C. Read the battling sides below.

Rose McGowan’s 1998 VMAs moment is so burned into all our collective memories that it’s no surprise that few celebrities have tried to top it. In case you’ve somehow forgotten, McGowan showed up on the arm of then-boyfriend Marilyn Manson wearing a sparkly sheer veil down her front connected by a handful of delicate strings … and not much else. Even red-carpet risk takers like Miley Cyrus and Rihanna haven’t gone quite so bold (though Rih’s come close). It appears Amber Rose thought we were overdue.
The star attended with husband Wiz Khalifa in the polar opposite of her wild wedding dress: A sparkly series of chains linked to create the illusion of a dress, over a sparkly G-string. Silver sandals and a big smile completed the look. Khalifa wore a statement-making shirt over slim pants and classic shoes.
We give both ladies props for their daring ensembles while silently praying this does not catch on outside of the VMAs. Now we’re looking for you to weigh in.
