Retro-Versace

Now, Versace designs have never been described as understated or subtle. But this Celine Dion bathing suit– with a matching sarong/scarf/cape, natch– seems a little excessive. It also feels a little too retro-Versace. Not in a timeless, classic, you’ll wear this piece for the rest of your life way. More of a Gianni’s over-the-top Miami Beach villa kind of way.

Je n’aime pas

I’m not feeling the love on Jaime Pressly’s outfit here. I’m feeling a little lightheaded from the doodled material, and the dress feels a bit bi-polar. The top is cut like a flowy maxi-dress, the bottom is cut like a hot-to-trot mini. Sorry — Je n’amie pas, Jaime.

Battlestar Galactica

I’m starting to see a little Elizabeth Taylor in Jennifer Lopez. She seems to be going for Liz’s Palm-Springs-aging-superstar look.

I’m all for a realistic body image. JLo has always been curvy, and the woman had twins, for heaven’s sake. Most of us have parts of ourselves we’d like to keep covered up. And most of us don’t look half as good as Jennifer Lopez.

But I am getting this vibe from her that she is trying to compensate for some perceived body imperfections. Like she is trying just a little too hard to show is she is still the sexy siren.

Instead, I see a bit of Battlestar Galactica in this outfit. I think it is the mother of all belts. Assuming the tummy area needs a little work after carrying two human beings, why would you wear a stretchy white Stonehenge of a belt?

PS I think JLo has lost her cajones. What is she doing with that little platic tab in her v-neck. JLo of the green Versace dress would never allow that!
