Best and Worst Dressed at Ray Ban's Clubmaster Relaunch

I should have known: anyone who comes out for a Ray Ban "Clubmaster" shades launch is bound to be way, way too cool for school.

The Gossip Girl kids were there (wonder if anyone asked 23 year-old Chace Crawford whether those rumors about dating 15 year-old Taylor Momsen have any truth to them) with their irony in check, as were Mighty Ducks star Joshua Jackson and his German paramour Diane Kruger. Maggie Gyllenhaal and, yes, Kevin Bacon were also there for good measure because, hey, who doesn't love a $100 pair of shades that are going to fall back out of style again in three years?

Best Dressed:

Maggie Gyllenhall's black, drapey winter dress looks gorgeous on her - I'm glad she decided to skip the orange see-through lace, this time around.

Kevin Bacon was the best dressed man at this event. There's a sentence I will probably never write again (no offense, Bacon). Because:

Oh, you Gossip Girlers. You think you can convince us of your street cred by throwing on a several-hundred dollar plaid jacket and looking all squinty? It doesn't matter if you got the clothes for free - you kids look way, way too styled to look schlumpy. But at least you're not Diane Kruger. Check out what I'd love to believe is a loving boyfriend's reaction to Diane's outfit:

Because this is what she wore:

To be fair, Kruger (who is almost always impeccably dressed) is so beautiful she almost pulls this off. Almost. The bow tie automatically conjures images of Chippendales and, worse, Magilla Gorilla.
