You think you’re a “Last Night’s Look: Love It or Leave It” addict? You should stop by the office sometime to see us passionately debating, defending and delighting in celeb styles — the good, the bad and the wacky. This week, we round up two looks we were loving and one that didn’t quite do it for us — check ’em out below and let us know your faves in the comments!

Love It: ZoĆ« Saldana’s Superheroically Amazing Valentino. Saldana is rumored to be hiding, as our friends at Go Fug Yourself would put it, a “uterine secret” (a.k.a. she’s reportedly expecting) and she’s been dressing that “rumor” in a variety of ways (some more successful than others). But when I saw her in this romantic, ruffled Valentino gown, I was instantly smitten. Let’s start at the top: Her hair is wavy and gorgeous and her face has never looked better — she’s absolutely radiant. Then that ruffled portrait neckline shows off her (allegedly) enhanced figure, while the high waist and full skirt gracefully skims anything she’s looking to hide. My favorite part of this elegant look? The print is actually made up of monkeys and fruit, which is just about as charmingly whimsical as you can get. –Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor

Love It: Selena Gomez’s Skin-spiring Ensemble. I’m always one for pushing the envelope when it comes to style, so when I saw the bra-baring Blumarine getup that Selena picked for the Ischia Global Festival in Italy, I was 110% on board. Her sheer rose-embellished collared shirt and matching high-waist mini are anything but basic. Had she picked a different bra, I could see this outfit going horribly wrong, but I think the wavy design of hers is fun and flirty. It’s not often that we get see the singer in fashion-forward looks, and I hope to see more soon. Stay tuned. –John Soper, Editorial Assistant

Leave It: Julianna Margulies’s Trip to Frumpsville. I’m usually on board with Julianna’s style choices, but that’s because they usually feel modern and perfectly tailored to her body. This black pants and hot-pink shirt ensemble, worn to the N.Y.C. premiere of A Most Wanted Man, definitely is not. The bottoms are too baggy and the shirt is too boxy. It does little to show off her amazing body. (When you look this good at 48, you should be flaunting it!) I think if she selected a more tailored suit or a cropped trouser with a colorful top, this look could have felt a bit more updated. –Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor

Way to make a woman feel good about herself People. So because she’s wearing a pink shirt and black pants, she’s boring and frumpy. Wow really.

Gretchen on

yes, and because Selena’s bra is showing to the max, that would make her all stylin’! Seriously, does anyone have a clue as to what looks good anymore? Zoe Saldana looks great and very well put together, but “wow! She must be hiding a “uterine secret”? Just when you think “baby bump” is about the most irritating phrase on the planet, someone comes up with one that is just mind-blowing. Sheesh, Zoe looks great, Selena needs the top to that dress, and Juliana is fine. Aghhh! Hire a real “Style Editor”, please!

Boogie Nights, Bralicious(not) and boring. Next

Welsey on

I agree. Selena needs to find the top to that outfit.

Smithy on

Zoe Saldana is the only one who looks classy and put together.

Carl Mape on

Zoe Saldana looks like Chris Rock in a blue dress. The other two at least look like women.

Samantha on

People you are UNbellievable! Julianna is more classy & stunning of the 3 women. What is so fashionable about the other ?!?! Julianna is not only beautiful & fabulous she is one insanely talented & intelligent woman!
