Great way to start my day.

There's nothing more frustrating than seeing someone you dislike wear a dress you love -- a dress you've coveted for months. That feeling is heightened when that someone is a pair of someones and between the two of them their biggest accomplishments are being named the most overrated young actress of 2004 and being little more than an extra on a "Laguna Beach" spin-off.

I can understand how Whitney Port has this dress - "The Hills" just had a premiere, after all - but how can Emmy Rossum, an "actress" who hasn't been in a film in three years ("The Day After Tomorrow" and "Poseidon" don't count), even afford a $500 dress? How much can hosting parties for new vodka lines and adhesive Swarovski eye crystals really pay?

Oh, that much.

So People Magazine expects me to vote for the one I think wore my 3.1 Phillip Lim asymmetrical rosette-trim cocktail dress the best? Unless there's a write-in option in which I can type something bitchy and immature, I will without hesitation press "next" and move onto Tilda Swinton and Amy Lee - two reasonable celebrities - battling it out in a gray, bow-belted Viktor & Rolf puffy coat.

Hmpf. What a way to start my day.

The nobody on the right clearly looks better than the nobody on the left. Better legs and less puckering in the midsection.
