The Never Changing Style Of Amanda Bynes

This post follows my first Amanda Bynes post back in July 2007 titled The Never Changing Hairstyle Of Amanda Bynes, which still hasn’t changed.

Recently when Amanda Bynes walked the red carpet it became clear that she had developed another pattern – only wearing head-to-toe black.

Amanda should be experimenting, taking risks and giving us something to ooohhh and aaah about.  Instead she gives us the same colour by numbers formula without ever colouring over the lines.

Her style is completely one dimensional – above the knee dresses, and her colour palette is predictably black or various shades of pink.

It’s believed that Bynes doesn’t have a stylist and I think her looks support that.

Many of you will argue that I moan when Rihanna over does it and moan when Bynes plays it safe, but at least Rihanna keeps things interesting no matter how hard she tries.

I’ll take an over-the-top look with shades at night, over another LBD with a black clutch and YSL Trib Two’s any day of the week.

The Cosmopolitan Magazine Party

Amanda Bynes does what she does best. Gives us something we’ve seen or feel we’ve seen before.

With her Pencey little black strapless dress, that same hairstyle, the black clutch and the black pumps, it’s like ground-hog day every time she steps onto the red carpet.

I’m dying for her to shake up her style. The last time she wore a different silhouette or anything past her knees was at the SAG Awards back in January 2008.

Amber Heard looked red hot and current wearing an Alexander Wang ensemble. This look consisted of a white caged top with a black fitted caged skirt.

Her look was completed with a pair of Chloé bow embellished sandals and a large waist belt.

Amber hair has now become bleach blonde from the lighter blonde locks she sported a few weeks ago. Although this colour gives her an edge, I prefer her as a brunette.  I’m sure her eyebrows would agree.

Kristen Bell always delivers something fresh. She’s not one to follow others and hop on the latest trends. Her look is always consistently fabulous and effortless.

I’m most impressed with her cute fuschia pink 3.1 Phillip Lim dress with a oversized collar which she accessorizes with a multi-coloured Topshop clutch and sparkling Jimmy Choo heels.

Ashley Greene opted for an off-the-shoulder blue BCBG Max Azria dress with a burst of floral prints.

This is the first time I have seen Ashley’s hair styled in a loose updo.

I’m loving the confident stance of Leona Lewis in this picture. It’s been a long time coming.

The Brit singer looked stunning in a blue plunging neck long-sleeved Elie Saab Fall 2008 dress, with dove grey heels and NO TIGHTS. This is a first.

Her figure is amazing. So delightfully curvaceous.

Maxim’s 10th Annual Hot 100 Celebration

Let’s see how many Trib Two’s, and Herve Leger dresses we can count at this event.

Heidi Montag, or should I say Heidi Pratt, wore platinum strappy heels, and a matching Nancy Gonzalez clutch, with her predictable Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 bandage dress.

I’m not particularly crazy about this look, and her necklace is so unnecessary. She should have saved it for a better outfit.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 0

Kim Kardashian opted for a very tight white H&M dress, from the Divided Exclusive Summer 2009 Collection, with 80s inspired shoulder pads.

This look is too severe for my liking, as she has one of those council estate face-lifts, were her hair is pulled back so tight her face looks stretched.

Jil Sander black pumps, and a Christian Louboutin clutch complete the look.

I’m really not liking Audrina Patridge’s lighter hair. She was so much prettier when her hair was darker.

She wore a navy mini dress under a black Kris Van Assche tuxedo jacket, whilst wearing her very favourite Balmain Crystal embellished studded sandals, and carrying her favourite Alexander McQueen bow clutch.

The only surprise with Amanda Bynes’ look, is that she’s not wearing a Herve Leger dress, but I guess when you know Heidi Montage has been invited, a Herve Leger dress is automatically off the table, as Heidi will definitely wear one.

Everything is standard Bynes’. Shoes, hair, vacant expression.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 1

Arielle Kebbel is wearing black peep-toes with her cute strapless BCBG Max Azria Spring 2009 dress *shudders*

God those heels are killing me, such a bad choice.

She should have considered the split in her dress, before striking that pose.

Ciara sure knows how to rock cornrows. The dress is event appropriate, but I would have expected her to go more high fashion, and stand out from this crowd considering her many good choices lately.

Herve Leger Count: 1
Trib Two Count: 2

Dania Ramirez channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw wearing a pair of Manolo Blahnik Something blue satin pumps, with her marble print strapless Farah Angsana dress.

Gabrielle Union & Jamie Gunns arrived wearing the same Herve Leger dress.

That’s gotta be embarrassing, but that will teach them both to be so unimaginative.

Herve Leger Count: 3
Trib Two Count: 2

Vanessa Minnillo quietly walked the red carpet with Nick Lachey, wearing a Laila Azhar pleated strapless dress, with lust worthy Fendi Boudoir sandals.

Whenever I see Taryn Manning, I always think this is one of the lost Lohan sisters.

This platinum dress is so ill-fitting on her.

“Rock To Erase MS” Red Carpet

WOW. This red strapless Farah Angsana Fall 2009 gown, is so far away from the Kristin Cavallari we’re used to seeing on the red carpet.

This is what happens when a reality TV star takes herself out of her comfort “uniform” zone of Herve Leger and Trib Two’s, and tries something different.

Melissa George picked a cream leather Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 dress, with an airbrush print. This is very different from the bandage dresses we are used to seeing from Max Azria.

The panel down the front, helps give her the illusion of a very tiny waist.

Angie Harmon wore a Moschino Spring 2009 black and taupe sleeveless dress, with a cute ruffled neckline, and chiffon floral appliqués around the waist.

Her look was complete with very sexy strappy sandals.

One thing I will say about Avril Lavigne, is that she hasn’t dialed down her look since getting married.

Jessica Biel, Rachel Bilson, and even the hottest chick on the planet Adrian Lima, all dialed down their looks once becoming part of a couple.

That being said, it’s not the best dress on this red carpet, which further proves she hasn’t changed a bit.

Yes we have all given credit to Kim Kardashian toning down her trashy ways, but in this grey jersey dress, she’s totally muted.

Loving the nude lips though.

Jessica Lowndes wore silver accessories with her Rebecca Taylor green strapless dress, which had a ruffled detail on the skirt.

Jewel’s foot has finally healed, so now she can walk the red carpet unaided. Woohoo for her.

Like Jessica, silver accessories were used to punch up her purple tiered mini silk organza Tadashi Shoji Fall 2009 dress with tiered skirt dress.

Amanda Bynes wore a white dress, which is cute enough, but I can’t help but always be so bored by her. Her look is so formulaic, and it all starts with the hair.

She completes her look with gold tribute sandals.

“Star Trek” LA Premiere

The little goosebumps going up my arm, are a clear indication that Zoe Saldana will a be contender for Best Dressed Of The Week.

What’s that 3 weeks in a row? Girlfriend is on fire.

Her long sleeved Emilio Pucci Fall 2009 sequined mini dress, with a snake-like silver detail running through it, lacey cut outs, plus the first way she is posing, ensured that no one was going to upstage her on her night.

If you have a shoe fetish, I suggest you don’t look at her outstanding Brian Atwood Wicked heels, from the Fall 2009 collection.

Very wicked indeed.

Once you’ve scrolled down, one thing will stand out, Michelle Monaghan.

This is because she opted for a neon pink Versace Fall 2009 long-sleeved dress, when most others opted for black.

I love the colour, her fresh face, and her clutch. I wouldn’t have picked those black strappy sandals, but she makes them work.

Leighton Meester gave her lighter locks their red carpet debut last night.

The Gossip Girl actress wowed the crowds in a mini slate grey YSL bow back dress. The dress kinda look a tad tight, but I just love the 3 bows fastened across the back.

Her head-to-toe YSL Spring 2009 look was complete with YSL cage ankle boots.

I have the feeling that Heidi Klum is going take maternity chic to another level.

The stylist mum-to-be, wore a black flapper-style Jasmine di Milo fringed dress, which covered her growing baby bump, with black Louboutin’s, and Martin Katz jewels.

Even though Nicollette Sheridan is on trend wearing the much loved Christian Louboutin Differa sandals, why does her look seems so out-dated?

Amanda Bynes has been beamed back to 2007, when it was hot to wear a coral Hervé Léger mini bandage dress, with YSL Tribute sandals.

Geez, even Heidi Montag would frown at this look.

I’m not sure what Kristin Cavallari actually does these days, but she sure made sure she would get some attention wearing a Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2009 multi-coral mini dress.

Christian Louboutin Catenita cork sandals, with a hot pink platform completed the look.

Sophia Bush completes the trio of Hervé Léger dresses on this red carpet, and I can’t help but feel a tiny bit disappointed.

Not because of her Hervé Léger Zebra stripe dress itself, because she looks lovely in it, but because it puts her in the same category as Amanda and Kristin.

Hayden Panettiere’s looks very grown up in her black figure-hugging black pencil dress with cut-outs on the side.

I’m glad she added those bubblegum pink Louboutin’s, otherwise I may have disliked this look.

Winona Ryder makes a very rare appearance on the red carpet, channeling her usual Gothic chic, in a lacey full-skirted black dress.

"17 Again" LA Premiere

Michelle Tractenberg appears to have attended the School of Overdressing, as taught by Kate Beckinsale, who’s former student included Emmy Rossum.

She looks great, don’t get me wrong. But this gorgeous eggplant strapless Marchesa dress with a bejeweled bow detail, is a classic case of right dress, wrong occasion.

One thing you can always predict, is that Amanda Bynes will be predictable on the red carpet.

LBD – Check.
YSL Trib Two’s – Check.
Never changing hairstyle – Check.

Allison Miller goes for a sweet, yet chic Brian Reyes Resort 2009 dress.

Her look was teamed with a Kara Ross clutch, Sergio Rossi metallic t-bar heels, and Ikat jewelry.

I was loving Monique Coleman’s look until I saw the wardrobe malfunction on the zipper of her pants.

Brittany Snow’s look has a spring-time feeling to it, with the pale yellow mini Erin Fetherston chiffon dress, and tie-dye cropped jacket, but the black strappy Jimmy Choo heels ruin this look for me.

Leslie Mann opted for an above-the-knee cream chiffon Zac Posen dress, with a cute ruffled neckline.

Perez Hilton’s 31st Birthday Party

After the Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards, Ashley Tisdale skipped over town to attend Perez Hilton’s birthday party.

Still wearing the same open toe booties from the awards do, Ashley changed out of her cute Akiko Ogawa dress, to something more edgy.

From her whole look, I really loved her A.L.C. Motorcycle jacket. It went with Ashley’s wannabee rock chick vibe, which included her white Siwy Hannah slim jeans, and her ripped tee. Kate Moss would applaud her efforts.

I have never been a fan of white jeans, but these I love.

Amanda Bynes’ fuschia pink dress really showed off her tan.

I can’t talk about that hair as it drives mental, but I will point out, that whilst applying her tan, she forgot to do her hands. Ooops.

I love Paris Hilton’s black studded Giusppe Zanotti booties, but I’m not crazy about this hard edge look.

I prefer her wearing cutesy dresses, but I guess this look is right for this occasion, even though the skirt sits a little high for my liking.

Off-topic – Am I the only one very suspicious about this Doug Reinhardt guy?

I don’t think this jumpsuit is doing Kim Kardashian any favours. She appears wider than what she really is. Plus the shape and size of the belt just doesn’t work.

Before today, I was totally in love with that Prada python clutch. The lust factor has faded somewhat, now I have seen Heidi Montag carrying.

The LBD is as you would expect – revealing. And her cream platform heels are from the Gucci Spring 2009 collection.

I don’t quite understand why Aubrey O’Day is pouting so much, she already has enough collagen in her lips to fill a kids size swimming pool.

As you would expect the dress is hideous, and her choice of Christian Louboutin short Tina fringe pumps complete this monstrosity.

Emmy Rossum really stands out from this crowd. I feel like she is doing community service.

She sticks to her usual style of wearing a cute unoffensive dress, which shimmers so brightly.
