Jul/26/2013 at 10:09 AM ET

Who: Piper Perabo

Where: Visiting the SiriusXM studios in N.Y.C.

Diagnosis: She’s suffering from one of the highest “Leave It” ratings in recent StyleWatch history. Also: chafing.

Prognosis: There is absolutely no resuscitating high-waisted, quilted, front-zip leather bike shorts: They must be left to die. For immediate triage, we recommend swapping in some cute, relaxed cutoffs. Once the immediate danger is over, we can discuss wearing a long-sleeved turtleneck in July, but at the moment, the cute shoes and great hair keep Piper out of immediate danger.

Style Rx: Anne Hathaway, Your Pants May Not Need to Be Quite So Large

Who: Anne Hathaway

Where: Visiting a friend in Beverly Hills

Diagnosis: Cognitive dissociation. Hathaway appears to have no idea that the size of her legs is not, in fact, relative to the size of these giant pants.

Prognosis: Fortunately this is a very easy fix. With one quick incision (up one leg and down the other of this particular pair) and an immediate transfusion (of cute, slim-fit jeans or distressed denim shorts), Hathaway will be feeling better in no time. We, on the other hand, may need a little while to recover.

Style Rx: Rihanna, It May Be Time To Look Into Buttons

Rihanna jumpsuit

Who: Rihanna

Where: Partying in Paris

Diagnosis: Our official style policy is “Rihanna can wear anything.” But we may have to make an exception for this super skintight red suede jumpsuit, which is just barely contained at her chest. We know the star has an aversion to buttons (and zippers, and snaps, according to this jumpsuit) but it may be time to investigate some.

Prognosis: A pro tip for any ladies daring to wear a deep V-red suede jumpsuit (so, only Rihanna): Make sure it fits properly in the chest to ensure that your look is alluring, not eye-popping. And let your ridiculous body be your best accessory; the multiple chains, huge clutch and funky shoes just distract from the point you’re trying to make.

Style Rx: Vanessa Hudgens's Outfit Suffers From a Terminal Case of Overkill

May/30/2013 at 12:00 PM ET

Who: Vanessa Hudgens

Where: Shopping in West Hollywood

Diagnosis: Stevie Nicks, John Lennon and a Victorian widow walk into Vanessa Hudgens’s closet… You’ll have to forgive us for making a joke at a serious time like this. In fact, this could be fatal. The combination of clogs, choker, granny glasses, embroidered sheer gown and fringed moss-colored shawl jacket is the very definition of overkill.

Prognosis: Vanessa, no one wants you to give up your boho edge. It wouldn’t be a real Coachella without you. We’re just gently suggesting you go with one element at a time to avoid taking your look from pretty to parody. Put that jacket with a great-fitting pair of jeans and we wouldn’t even blink an eye. One more thing: We’re afraid we’ll have to quarantine those clogs in case they’re contagious.

Style Rx: Is It Possible Zooey Deschanel Is Actually Stuck In These Tights and Can't Get Out?

May/17/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

Who: Zooey Deschanel

Where: At the Fox upfronts in N.Y.C.

Diagnosis: We grow increasingly concerned that she is stuck in the same pair of black tights and cannot remove them. We’re all for having a “thing,” but when that “thing” makes us sweaty and uncomfortable by association, we become a little less supportive.

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

Prognosis: Zooey, we’ve noticed you’re experimenting with your bangs lately, and that’s super. We recommend riding that experimental wave and trying a few A-line skirt outfits — sans tights. No major changes to your wardrobe are needed; just one quick check of Weather.com before heading out the door would keep your red-carpet style fun, feminine and yet climate-appropriate.

Style Rx: Kourtney Kardashian's Outfit Blends the '70s, '90s ... and 1590s

May/02/2013 at 06:00 PM ET

Kourtney Kardashian Greece outfit
Splash News Online

Who: Kourtney Kardashian

Where: In Greece with her family

Diagnosis: Has anyone seen Kardashian near Doc Brown or a DeLorean lately? Because her outfit is doing some major time-traveling, from the fringed, crocheted, tiered ’70s pants to the Saved by the Bell-era tied-up top … to the Medieval princess-style pointed, jeweled circlet.

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

Prognosis: We actually love Kardashian’s “eclectic, effortless” style, but wearing fancy faux bangs on a boat is a little too much of the former and not enough the latter. We recommend keeping the cute tied chambray cover-up and pairing it with a relaxed striped mini (this one is less than $7!), then saving the pants and wacky topper for their respective decade costume parties.

Style Rx: Kat Von D, We Have Concerns About This Jumpsuit

Apr/18/2013 at 05:06 PM ET

Who: Kat Von D

Where: Signing books at an N.Y.C. Barnes & Noble

Diagnosis: Confusion about which event she was attending, which we attribute to lack of oxygen circulation in her extremely tight jumpsuit. Between the clear view of her bra and the rather suggestive zipper, she could remain fully clothed and still get a full medical exam.

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

Prognosis: Kat Von D, we know you have an image to uphold, and we appreciate that. And truly, we have no objection to this look if you’re cheering on your motocross boyfriend at his big race; it just seems possibly a little x-treem for a weekday Barnes & Noble visit. May we suggest this Mara Hoffman dress instead, for a similarly suggestive look that’s not quite so graphic? You can even keep the same accessories!
