Yay or nay?

I already know how I’ll be voting in November, but I am undecided on this dress that Lucy Liu wore to the Barack Obama Black and White Gala last night.

On one hand, I like it soooo much more than Melanie Brown’s tacky too tight, too shiny, too low, too sparkly dress. But I am not sure that liking it more than Mel B’s dress means that I like it overall. I mean, I’d like a flour sack better than Mel B’s dress.

I like the the top of Lucy Liu’s dress. The belt and brooch are tolerable. The draping of the skirt along the waist is very pretty. But the draped mermaid tail at the bottom makes her look like a tootsie roll wrapper. And can we once-and-for-all retire the Heidi braided headband hairstyle? Pleeeeeezzzzeeeee?

Queen of upstaging

You know the rule that guests don’t wear white to a wedding, because it upstages the bride? Well, that’s nothing to The Queen of Upstaging– Aubrey O’Day.

Think of the poor animals had to sacrifice for this outfit. Ostriches without feathers and snakes without skin. And for what purpose? For her to look like a a trampy feather duster?
