Milkmaid

Maggie Gyllenhaal makes this too easy. She goes to a Peace Bed-in sponsored by Ben and Jerry’sĀ dressed like a flippin’ Vermont milkmaid. Honestly. You don’t need me to write anything here. This shit can write itself.

Beaten to death

May 27, 2008 at 5:08 pm (Mariah Carey, Stretch, Tights) ()

I am soooo tired of this look on Mariah Carey.

Sporty “Members Only” style jacket with elastic waist, unzipped to her navel to show off the girls. Skin-tight short skirt. Over-sized sunglasses. Flashing her bling (at least it’s not that infernal butterfly ring). We have seen it on her a million times before.

I’d love to see her update with a new look, as this one has definitely been beaten to death.

PS Is it me, or do those shoes seem to small for her? Her toes look like they are hanging over the edge quite a bit.

Jagged Little Hem

May 27, 2008 at 3:17 pm (Natalie Portman, Stripes) ()

First I’ll say that I love Natalie Portman’s fashion sense. She goes forĀ  edgy choices. The downside is that (occasionally) those edgy choices won’t work out. Unfortunately, this is one of those choices.

I like the idea of the dress. And I usually like stripes. It is accessorized impeccably. Everything other than the dress looks great.

But on a slow celeb-photo weekend, this dress gets the ax. The stripes are sewn with an exposed, jagged, raw hem so it looks like she is wearing the dress inside out. The fabric looks like muslin. I know Ms. Portman likes to earthy and organic materials, but this isn’t appropriate for an evening look. And the gathering around the midsection doesn’t make any sense.
