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 Katie Holmes, who was going for “breezy and effortless” at a summer bash — though Tabatha doesn’t think she achieved it.

Hey Katie, the invitation to Coach’s party at High Line said it was a “summer party,” not a “toga party.”

Seriously folks, what the hell is she wearing? It looks like she swiped some white table bunting from a banquet hall and got dressed in a taxi cab. Strike that. Actually, Katie looks like she is wearing her first assignment from the “Sewing for Beginners” class she took at Francine’s Craft World.

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?

Tabatha's Takeover: Jessica Alba Needs to Return Her Shoes to The Golden Girls Set

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.

Let me start by saying you usually look fabulous and know how to dress for your petite frame to create the perfect proportion.

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

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.

Tabatha's Takeover: Helen Mirren Is Living Elegance, End of Story!

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 Dame Helen Mirren, who wore a head-turning Lindka Cierach navy lace dress at the 2013 Laurence Olivier Awards in London last week.

Helen is living elegance, full stop, end of story! I want to grow up and be her — elegant, sophisticated, poised, talented, and so age appropriately fabulous. It’s as if the red carpet was laid down to showcase her perfect navy dress and porcelain skin. She knows what looks good on her and this dress delivers.

I’m a sucker for expertly-executed detail and surprise elements in clothing. The detail in this gown is as gripping as a Hitchcock thriller. The two tones of navy created from the different textured fabrics are intriguing. I love the subtle play of light on the sequins and the lace detail through the top and the length of the sleeves. The asymmetrical slip of flowing fabric gives this a soft, modern feel. Where many would stop Helen keeps going.

Her perfectly coiffed natural hair and porcelain skin are stunning. She is timeless. Nothing Psycho here. Love this look. Love Helen.
