Well, hell. If those are what’s hot for spring, I’m in big trouble.
Fugger: Halle Berry
First of all, I think we can all agree that The Call looks like a Lifetime movie. And listen, I enjoy the occasional jaunt over to the Lifetime Movie Network. I once stayed home and folded laundry for EIGHT HOURS one Sunday when they ran a marathon of all the Menendez Brothers movies. But when you think “911 operator gets possessed by Liam Neeson in Taken” do you REALLY go right to a big screen release and Halle Berry? Because that seems like made-for-TV movie to me for sure. Also confusing: ABIGAIL BRESLIN’S OUTFIT. We’ll get to it.
Okay, let’s just say what we’re all thinking: Krystal Carrington TOTALLY wore this to some charitable function held at Chez Carrington, where she was just trying to raise awareness about sad angel clowns or whatever but ended up getting derailed by something terrible (slash awesome) that Alexis engineered and then found herself closing out the evening face down in a lily pond. She was. I know it. You know it. Halle Berry totally knows it:
That doesn’t mean it isn’t still kinda awesome.
I watch Scandal, and I enjoy it enough, although I do not think it’s as perfect as most of the world seems to (like, Fitz seems like a TERRIBLE president, and kind of a terrible husband AND illicit boyfriend). However, one thing it’s been good for is raising Kerry Washington’s profile, so that she’s out and about on a lot more red carpets. The lady may not always get an A from me on execution, but if we’re talking interest level and ambition and whatnot, she’s got a pretty damn good GPA.
I wish Chaka Khan got invited to EVERYTHING.
