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: Kerry Washington’s Red-Hot Return. I’m so psyched to see Kerry Washington back on the publicity circuit, because I know that means I’m in for a bunch of awesome outfits. She kicked her Scandal tour off in style, visiting Jimmy Kimmel Live! in a red floral A-line number from Tory Burch, plus perfectly ladylike accessories: a sleek crossbody and immaculate black patent pumps. Sure, she’s not reinventing the wheel, but when she looks this good, I’m not going to argue with it — and I can’t wait to see what comes next. –Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor

Love It: Dania’s Ramirez’s Sporty-Chic Perfection. What’s black and white and gorgeous all over? Dania in this killer crop top and matching pencil skirt by Alessia Prekop. This getup could easily have gone in an unfortunate “Devious Maids-uniform” direction, but thanks to the asymmetrical leather panel, spiked Atelier clutch and green metallic pumps her vibe is totally punk-yet-polished instead. I love how she has just the right amount of midriff exposed (please take note, celebs who are naked 24/7) and the combo of textures and geometry add tons of attitude to her look. I especially loved Dania’s opaque white mani with a silver accent nail! So modern! So fresh! So freaking cool! Top it all off with a perfectly imperfect ponytail and glossy wine-tinted lips for head-to-toe hotness. She definitely maid me look! Okay, done with the maid jokes now. –Loni Venti, Style and Beauty Editor

Leave It: Jena Malone’s See-Through Look: Oh my goodness, so much to say and yet I’m also rendered speechless. Jena, I love you a lot, but I wish your stylist loved you, too, and had suggested a different dress. Yes, she was hosting a “Skivvies” party in L.A., but no, this outfit just did not work at all. From the completely see-through floor-length lace overlay to the loud and proud granny panties to the not-quite-matching shoes, this entire look is just a huge no for me. But on the plus side: great abs! — Whitney Little, Audience Engagement Editor

Absolutely nothing worth commenting on here….. well, maybe that absolutely hideous white dress, or whatever it is…

If you were to google Jena Malone and her look on that particular night and what event she was going to, and you saw the other pictures for the night, this outfit makes sense. The sheer dress is actually a cover up. Her outfit is the number underneath and that was the point.
