I kind of love that InStyle took the girl on fire and effectively put her on ice.
Another day, another Dior. Between Catching Fire, the upcoming American Hustle events (unless J.Lawr skips all of them due to Junket Fatigue) and whatever Marion Cotillard and Patricia Clarkson are promoting in Marrakech, that label is everywhere right now. For better or worse. In the case of Clarkson, better; for Cotillard, the latter.
I might have done a red lip. And you know I would have worn a bracelet — I should have just gone ahead and bought all bracelets for all my gifts this Christmas. Enjoy, Dad! — BUT, with that said, having said that:
She looks pretty damn great. Although, shoe-wise, I maybe — no. You know what? I’m getting out now. Way to go, Julianna Margulies. You are gorgeous and you always look like a class act and The Good Wife is really REALLY good this season, so please do carry on.
If it’s the Unicef Snowflake Ball, Katy Perry must be wearing a cape:
Last year — the look I just linked to — she wore Naeem Khan, and this is also Naeem Khan. Naeem Khan is the official Katy Perry Couturier For The Snowflake Ball, apparently (which is a good choice; Naeem Khan’s been killing it lately). I know I’m putting this up to a vote, because I feel that some of you might not agree with me here and I want your voices to be heard, but SPOILER I love this. It is CRAAAAY, but a deep red crushed velvet bias-cut dress is like the epitome of my 90s high school dreams and you guys know that I treasure a cape at a formal event, especially such a festive cape, especially such a festive cape that could also be such a festive tablecloth, perhaps seen in the background of a fabulous West Elm window. I know that reads like an insult, but I am seriously really into West Elm, you guys. This is very glamorous and dramatic and holiday-appropriate and I say yay and also yea.
Amy should never have posed near a photo of how slammin’ she looks in the actual movie, because her outfit is basically the easiest scrolldown fug ever to be labeled thus.
Workable cocktail dress up top, lambskin condom on the bottom.
I admit that I think her hair looks great. I have an appointment with my hair guru on Thursday to deal with my (many) grey hairs, and I may very well be bringing this photo in For Discussion. (He gets the final say, because that’s how we roll.) And the truth is that I have rather missed Keira. It seems weird to have a holiday season without a Keira Knightley movie where she wanders around looking angst-y in a series of really gorgeous period costumes. Luckily, she’s in a movie coming out next year about the cracking of the Enigma code with Benedict Cumberbatch and Matthew Goode, which seems about exactly right.
I’m not in complete love with this dress — it’s a little musty-dusty to me, especially with those sleeves. But! The Daily Mail (I know; also, I think they should change the name of that publication to The Daily Mail I KNOW for those of us who often feel the need to defend the fact that we’re about to source The Daily Mail) also suspects, and I think in this at least they may be correct, that it is her wedding dress. And THAT I find charming. The whole beauty of a wedding dress that doesn’t scream THIS IS MY WEDDING DRESS is that you can wear your wedding dress — hopefully your favorite dress ever — without people coming up to you and going, “ARE YOU WEARING YOUR WEDDING DRESS?” Although if you want to start wearing a giant white ballgown to the office, honestly, who am I to stop you? It IS the holidays.
