Who Got It Right? Red Tights Can Be Tricky

02/07/2007 at 02:00 PM ET

Colored tights can be a tricky trend for the savviest fashionista — what to pair them with? how not to make your legs look larger than necesary? — and it’s pretty bad when you get it wrong. Joss Stone is always out there with her clothing choices, and her appearance at the Monday night Marc Jacobs show was no different. A few tips for Joss: a) don’t wear textured tights with a textured dress, b) wearing mini dresses with colored tights is too much of a good thing and c) never match the color of your tights to your shoes — and hair! Rachel Bilson gets it right, keeping her red tights matte and everything else black so there is just a hit of bright color. Tell us: How do you wear colored tights?

Racel Bilson looks much more sophistacated. I am not a big fan of Joss Stone, but in this case I think that I can say that she looks a little too rock and roll for her. It was a little too much

Rachel’s dress is Chanel. It’s $2990.00. Cashmere with silk chiffon. So beautiful.

Rachel looks polished with the perfect touch of color added to her outfit. Unfortunately Joss forgot to look in the mirror before leaving home. Not a good look to throw together white, pink and red…unless you are 2 years old.

Joss’ hair looks terrible! it’s a shame, cos she is such a pretty girl!! Rachel Bilson is always flawless, I can’t do anything but admire her completely!!

Has Joss Stone shrunk? She looks like she is an 8 year old in those hideous tights and that awful hair color! And has rachel bilson stepped into the eighteen hundreds? whats with the high colored, buttoned down, long black dress?

rachel looks soo cute! her red tights give the black dress just the right amount of color. i would wear her outfit, for sure. joss looks like a little girl! she looks ridiculous. personally, i think she looks trashy. her hair is ugly and her outfit is even uglier.
