Tabatha's Takeover: Matthew McConaughey Must Be Clowning Around

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 takes on Matthew McConaughey, who ditched his cowboy boots for a plaid suit at N.Y.C.’s Mud premiere.

FINALLY! Finally I get to critique a man for PEOPLE StyleWatch and it is someone I absolutely love: Mr. Matthew McConaughey. Too bad he isn’t wearing something fabulous.

What is this clown suit he’s wearing? And what’s up with this ridiculous backdrop? Is he promoting something at the circus?

I’m actually surprised he is wearing a suit of this nature. I would say 99 percent of the time I see him on the red carpet or caught on camera (with a shirt on, anyway) he is well dressed and on trend. Why in the world did Camilla Alves let him leave the hotel looking like this? Such a shame.

If I passed him on the street before he walked into the MoMA to promote his new film Mud, I would have pulled him into a nearby men’s store, ripped off that suit and dressed him in a 3-piece navy blue suit. I’d keep the white shirt the way it is, and even consider letting the gold chain stay to keep the jacket closed.

Before sending him back out, I’d rake my fingers through his hair to break up the stiffness of all that product and let his naturally curly hair fall the way it should.

Today, she takes on Lindsay Lohan, whose outfit required a double- or triple-take.

Hey there Lindsay! Well, don’t you look all bright eyed and fresh-faced, ready to jump on the big ol’ airplane? Where ya going? New York? I have to say, you look pretty comfy and ready to enjoy a long flight.

I can tell you’re a pro at traveling because you are sticking to the No. 1 rule of flying: dressing in layers. You have your scarf on, just in case you get cold. You have a cute little jacket on over what appears to be either a comfy tee or cozy tank of some sort. Oh and look, your iPhone is nestled in your front pocket for in-flight entertainment.

Tabatha's Takeover: When Your Dress Reminds Me of Post-Christmas Sales, Heidi Klum, We've Got a Problem

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 takes on Heidi Klum, who has altered another runway dress.

Hello, Heidi, and so we meet again here at PEOPLE StyleWatch. I know last time I referred to you as looking like “a disco mermaid straight out of a Vegas attraction” for what you wore to the EMAs, but this time I promise not to be as harsh.

I can’t help but say your sparkly Talbot Runhof mini reminds me of the 90%-off clearance holiday mylar wrapping paper I saw at my local drug store last week. Don’t get me wrong, it is a sexy and striking frock when it comes to the fit and length, but the color and material is not very becoming, especially for a morning show such as the Today Show.

You know what would have looked hot beyond hot? If the dress was in emerald green, the Pantone Color of the Year. With the same belt and accessories the overall look would have been pri-mo!

And for the record Heidi, I know you have some fierce fashion sense. You’re Heidi effing Klum! It is a very, very rare occasion (if ever) you are seen in something not so fabulous. I don’t feel like this is totally missing the mark. It’s just 90% off … if you know what I mean.

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from and her newest show, Tabatha Takes Over, which premieres tonight at 10 p.m.! 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 takes on Rita Ora, whose look is a puzzle we can’t solve:

Ha, ha, PEOPLE StyleWatch, you got me again! Wait, what? This isn’t an April Fool’s Day joke? This is real?! OH PLEASE NO.

Where do I even begin with this debacle? I guess I’ll start at the top. Her hair is a complete and utter mess. This is what Olivia Newton John’s character Sandy in Grease would look like if she rolled out of bed the morning after singing “You’re the One That I Want.”

Today, she takes on Miley Cyrus, who chose a very bold jumpsuit for a recent outing:

What in the world is Miley Cyrus wearing?! Am I looking at one of those Magic Eye posters where if I stare at it long enough I’ll see a schooner or an enchanted unicorn? So. Many. Stripes. Can’t. Focus.

Don’t get me wrong, I do love me some Miley. She is one youngster who I feel expresses her individuality and personality bravely. It’s difficult to be in the public eye, especially when you had to succumb to it at such an early age.

Today she takes on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, whose makeunder didn’t seem to last.

Snooki, Snooki, Snooki, what the hell are you wearing? You look like a pint-sized Elvira in this getup. It is completely unflattering.

And you know what else? I’m very disappointed because I know you recently lost a significant amount of weight and this dress is a disservice to all your hard work and efforts.

Tabatha's Takeover: Pregnancy Is No Excuse For Insanity, Fergie!

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 Fergie, whose maternity wear is starting to rival Kim Kardashian’s:

Fergie, babe, what’s going here? Are you channeling Stevie Nicks at a Johnny Cash benefit down at SXSW?

Dare I say it, but good gosh this is far too much black for my liking. And you know that’s pretty severe coming from someone who wears all black all the time.

RELATED PHOTOS: Vote on more questionable star style in “Obsessed or Hot Mess?”

You know what it is? It’s the fact you have too many layers going on here. I get it that you’re pregnant and trying to either conceal a (not-even-showing) baby bump or trying not to show too much skin, but c’mon: you need to reveal a little here.

You appear as though you are one endless canvas of black from the neck down with the exception of your (holy hell I love them) boots. Ditch the sheer witchy-cloaky thingy and show off those toned arms of yours and a little leg. You’re Fergie for crying out loud!

I’m not sure what time of day this photo was taken, but you look a bit washed out. I think a little pop of color on the lips would have been wise and a quick wisp of some blush would take you from drab to fab.

And good God girl, get some volumizing mousse and a teasing comb! Your bedhead looks like real bedhead and not in the good bedhead kind of way if you know what I mean. Is there a licensed cosmetologist in the house?! We need one STAT!
