Blinded by the white

I sit at a desk all day and pound away at a keyboard. I don’t live in LA. I don’t have a convertible. I don’t take exotic vacations with cabanas and private beaches. And yet, somehow, even my legs aren’t this white.

Are big shoulder pads coming back into style? The jury’s still out on that one. But this jacket looks more 80s original than modern interpretation. And I am speechless by the high-waisted short-shorts. There just aren’t words.

Mamma mia!

What in the heck are the Mamma Mia wives wearing!?

At the world premiere of Mamma Mia, co-stars Colin Firth (whom I absolutely adore) and Pierce Brosnan (who ain’t too shabby either) both look great. Dapper, suave, all that you’d expect.

But what are their wives wearing? Livia Giuggioli, married to Colin Firth, seems to want to tell the world how utterly happy she is. And, obviously, that message is best communicated in sequins, with Pac-Man eyes on your boobs.

And Keely Shaye Smith, wife of Pierce Brosnan, may want to rethink the neckline of her dress next time. Yowza. At least it isn’t strapless.

Picnic chic

I don’t like to ridicule celebrities for what they wear in private. If you step on a red carpet, you better be looking your best, darn it.

If some paparazzi is hassling you as you go to Starbucks or are in your own backyard, then you don’t deserve to have your fashion choices critiqued. You’ve got enough to deal with– like some wacko shoving a telephoto lens in your face while you are just trying to run some errands.

I made an exception in this case because Abbie Cornish and Ryan Philippe are “debuting” themselves as a couple. They gotta know that pictures are going to be taken. And she is going to be assessed. Did they start dating before Ryan’s marriage ended? Who is she? And, while we’re at it, what the heck is she wearing!?

Is Abbie a member of a unique Amish or Mormon sect that mandates dowdy shoes? Does she have a rare disorder where her skin shrivels up if it is exposed to sunlight? Why else would she be sooooo covered up at an outdoor summer event?

Jumpsuit revisited

Here is Plaintiff’s Evidence Exhibit B on why I do not like jumpsuits. Is Selma Blair trying to look like Evil Knievel? Elvis? Or a long lost member of KISS?

Here is Plaintiff’s Evidence Exhibit A.
