Emily Blunt's stylist has slammed TV fashion critics for their uninformed red carpet commentary on what the stars are wearing.

Hollywood stylist Jessica Paster, who counts model Miranda Kerr and Emily Blunt amongst her celebrity clients, has questioned the fashion expertise of the presenters on E!'s show Fashion Police.

Jessica explained how stars should not take the sharp tongued critique dished out by hosts such as Kelly Osbourne to heart as they have no fashion credentials to back up their views.

"I find it very…it’s an opinion. These are not fashion people. If Kelly Osbourne didn’t have Fashion Police, what is she going to do? Did she go to school to be a lawyer? Did she go to school to be a stylist?," Jessica told Fashionista. "What I’m trying to say…it’s not derogatory. I think she’s nice and cute at what she does. But it’s just an opinion."

The celebrity stylist, who has worked with the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Hilary Swank during her career, has been tapped to dress some of the stars expected to grace the red carpet at the upcoming Oscars.

Jessica shared her thoughts on the outfits worn by Hollywood's leading ladies at the recent Golden Globe Awards, and discussed who got it right and who got it wrong.

"I wasn’t a fan of Kelly Osbourne’s cream-colored Zac Posen. I thought it fit her well, but the colour didn’t look right with her skin colour. I thought that Dior did a beautiful job with Marion Cotillard. This is [Raf Simons’] first major red carpet moment. I was very surprised that Chanel brought a dress out from 2009 [for Anne Hathaway]. 2009 is not vintage. It’s an older dress. Vintage is vintage. It’s something in the ‘70s, ‘60s, ‘50s. The ‘90s is vintage maybe, the ‘80s perhaps. But I thought she looked lovely," Jessica continued.

"I thought that Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson rocked Alexander McQueen, they looked awesome. And of course my girls, Emily Blunt, Miranda Kerr, Carla Gugino, Hannah Simone - they all looked wonderful."
