Trying too hard

May 29, 2008 at 1:24 pm (Bows, Draped, Kim Catrall, Shiny) ()

Kim Catrall looks great. She is 50 years old, and she is in great shape. Hats off to her. But she really tries too dang hard. If she ratcheted it back just a notch, she would look fantastic.

Instead, she looks like the mom-that-tries-too-hard-to-be-like-her-daughter. The goofy necklineĀ and lone sleeve looks to prom dressy. The bow is silly on a woman of her age. The skirt is a total confusing mess. And the pastel color is too bland with her coloring.

Shoes with an ankle strap are NOT a good idea for aging legs. Even her aging legs, which are arguably better than most aging legs.

She is obviously a woman with tons of self-confidence. Channel that toward a more age-appropriate look, and she’d be a complete knock out.

Well, at least Lil Kim is covered up. Considering she usually shows up half-naked, this should be seen as progress. Though we endorse her choice TO be covered up, we don’t endorse the dress she covered herself up with.

Lil Kim went from super-tight, super-revealing clothes to an over-sized and shapeless jersey dress. I do not understand the seam on her chest at all. It looks like she is wearing a pink strapless dress with an orange t-shirt underneath. And the hem of the dress looks like a stretched out sweatshirt from eighth grade gym class.

The shoes look like they were on the sale shelf at Payless, and the rhinestone belt looks like a dog collar for Paris Hilton’s toy poodle.
