I used to be kind of neither here nor there on Claire Danes. YES, I loved My So-Called Life, and I cried when she died in Little Women, but I feel like she went through a long period where all she did was show up places looking smug — and the whole Billy Crudup-Mary Louise Parker thing was awkward for everyone at best. But it was hard not to be worn over by Temple Grandin (and Temple Grandin), and she is so HARD CORE AWESOME on Homeland that now I totally love her. We call this the Chloe Sevigny Effect — I once said, on these very pages, when I was younger and meaner, “f$%ck your umlat, Chloe Sevigny” — and now I love her, because she was so freaking great on Big Love. I am very fickle, you guys, and extremely easily swayed by someone who is really good at her job. ANYWAY. We love you now, Claire, and we are very happy you won, AND we liked your outfit. LOVE FEST! Let’s take a look.
Fug File: Accessories to the Crime
Okay, there are some TCAs and other premiere pictures in here, too, but it’s mostly stuff from the People’s Choice Awards, or as I like to think of it, The Thing That Warms Up My Typing Fingers For Globes Week. I promise there are some purses this time, but I think we all pretty much come for the shoes, don’t we?
My gift to you: procrastinatory slideshows of things most of us aren’t getting this holiday season. It’s almost Friday. STAY STRONG.
Sing this to the tune of that Target “SHAUN WHITE HOODIES AND DENIM” ad. Are you ready? Okay: “SHOOOOOES. BOOTIES PUMPS HIGH HEELS AND ONE PURSE.”
It’s Fat November, which — judging by my planned Thanksgiving menu — will soon roll into Obese December. So I’d like to look at the one thing I can wear regardless of what size I am: shoes. Beautiful shoes. Or, in some cases, cracked-out, crazy, and/or painful-looking shoes. But it’s all non-fat eye candy to me.
It’s Friday. Lock up your wallets someplace safe and then let’s do some serious shoe ogling.
