Berlin tempted a handful of celebrities away from Hollywood during awards season for their annual film festival.

Controversial opinion alert: I love this. She’s a modern-day Little Red Riding Hood, and while that story is exceptionally disturbing when you dig a little, Elle looks like she stepped out of a fairy tale.

Nice, but boring. The 90’s column dress with spaghetti straps has never been, nor ever will be, my thing.

This has so many elements I like. The princess silhouette. The whimsical pattern. The sparkles. The fact that it’s Valentino. But I still don’t like it. I think it needs 50% less sheer, and maybe a black background instead of the drab tan?

Lovely. I would wear this in a heartbeat.

Classy as always. Is she even capable of looking bad?
Tilda Swinton in ChanelEmbed from Getty Images
This is classic Tilda. Taken virtually unchanged from its runway presentation, this is…really something. I gotta give her credit though, she makes a very chic female Charlie Chaplin.

Just the coolest, as always. Is there some kind of black magic I can use to trade places with her for a day? I literally cannot imagine what it would feel like to be that coo. Sigh…
Mia Wasikowska in PradaEmbed from Getty Images
This is fine. Mia tends to stick with a pretty monochromatic palette can be boring.

See? The best I can tell, this dress was originally shown in a lovely red and pink, so Mia must have specially requested a version in boring, basic black. Which…why??

Fabulous! Her clutch reads “Women of the World, Unite!”, and sadly I don’t have a designer credit for it or the dress.

I like this quite a bit. It’s actually very similar to my senior prom dress, which makes me all sorts of nostalgic.
