We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her newest show, Tabatha Takes Over, which is in its fifth season! And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch each week to dish on some of the bestand 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!

Oh look, it’s Jenny from the Block. Um, more like Jenny from the Swamp! Ick, ick, double Crocodile Dundee ick. Hid-e-ous is a nice way of describing this outfit. It looks like a crocodile wrestled a spider’s web and the croc won. Just looking at this makes me think Halloween costume, Elvira, and WTF were you thinking. It’s too much, too heavy, and it looks like the croc is wearing you, you’re not wearing it.

On a positive note, I love the clutch and shoes. And I’m absolutely swooning over her hair color and style. Her highlighted hue is a nice transition from spring to summer, and the wavy layers really accentuate the color placement.

Hey Jennifer, check out the step and repeat behind you. See how it says, “Chime for Change”? All I can think is “Time for Change.”

Where are those Brady Brunch kids when you need them to sing a diddy?

Stunning, just stunning I say. Well, except for the shoes Jessica Alba! It’s a beautiful Zuhair Murad dress – the lace underlay, captivating plunge, and the curve-hugging shape is really gorgeous. The placement and pattern of the beading makes her flawless body even more so by nipping in her already tiny waist and accentuating her curves.

You know what is throwing me off a bit? Those boring, lackluster shoes she has on. I can’t stand them. They are dowdy and uneventful. It’s as if I can hear them begging to be returned back to the set of The Golden Girls, and the color is totally off.

Aside from the attire, I would like you to take notice of something — her hair. The chocolate low-lights and caramel highlights are deliciously on trend. As for the styling, her long, flowing waves are completely flawless. I give her hair a 10, her dress a 10 and those wretched shoes a -9.

I love the Cannes Film Festival. From the lavish parties and events to the red carpet attire, this star-studded week-long event is where I get a lot of inspiration for hair and fashion.

This week I’d like to take a moment and give my two cents on the lovely Miss Zoë Saldana.

Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba joins us again to blog about her style (and all the backstage scoop) on the show’s 16th season. This week, she discusses the search to find a look that’s as special as the show’s major milestone.

300 episodes! Wow! It’s an incredible feeling to celebrate our 300th episode. To be a part of a show that has had 300 episodes completed; well, it’s an honor, to say the least. I wanted to point out that there are three people who have been on every single episode from Day 1. Those three people are myself, Tom Bergeron, and Bruno Tonioli.

It’s been a wonderful ride of 300 nights of dancing. With wonderful and extraordinary choreography, beautiful costumes and incredible production value, I’m really proud of our team. It takes so many people to make a show happen.

In honor of the 300th celebration I wanted to make sure what I was wearing tonight made me feel like I was going to the hottest party in town. A little rock star, a little sexy, a little sophisticated.

Confessions of a Celeb Stylist: Leslie Fremar Shares the Single Best Accessory to Have In Your Arsenal

Meet Leslie Fremar. She’s Hollywood’s top stylist (literally — The Hollywood Reporter just said so!) with clients from Julianne Moore to Reese Witherspoon. And now she’s bringing her considerable talents to our site to share behind-the-scenes scoop, styling tips and much more. For her latest, she explains how to translate Moore’s unbelievable, completely custom Met Gala look into an experience you can actually incorporate into your own wardrobe — no stylist needed.

After reading last week’s post, with Balenciaga staffers flying in from Paris and custom emerald cuffs being created just for one night, you’re probably thinking, “How could this possibly relate to my life or me getting ready for an event?”

The process is one that has been done for many years and it works. You start with an idea, or something that you love, an inspiration — and then you go look for something that’s not the exact same, but has the same feeling. For example: say you saw something extremely romantic and you can relate to that image and it reflects your personality and your style. Keep that image in mind when you’re shopping.

Also, when picking a dress be sure to pick something that fits your body type. If you have broad shoulders and have smaller hips I would suggest wearing something really fitted. If you have larger hips and are smaller on top, maybe find something that has a more defined waist, with a skirt that has more volume. These are little tricks that work to create illusions. I love magic!

Tabatha's Takeover: This Dress Makes Katy Perry Look Like 'a Bat-Winged Box In Boots'

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her newest show, Tabatha Takes Over, which is in its fifth season! And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch each week to dish on some of the bestand 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 discusses Katy Perry, whose outfit didn’t have whipped cream boobs or a Smurf’s face, but still managed to surprise us.

Seriously Katy, what in the hell are you wearing? From the print of the dress to the crazy collar and air conditioned sleeves, this frock is a hot silk mess.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to be a bully, I’m just saying what everyone else is thinking. Let me put it this way: You have this killer, dynamic body that should be celebrated with clothing that accentuates your figure. This “thing” you have on is just making you look like a colorful bat-winged box in boots.

My recommendation: You should check out what the chick behind you is wearing. Actually, follow her into the washroom and convince her to swap outfits. Pay her off if you have to. It would be worth every penny.

But don’t get rid of your boots. Those ripped jeans and that vintage Janet Jackson shirt would look brilliant with your rock star leather Jimmy Choo boots, jet black hair and cool girl black sunglasses.
