Mirren mirren on the wall

I stand in awe of Helen Mirren. She has a better body than I do, and she is almost twice my age! Plus she usually looks age-appropriately chic and wears some fabulous REAL jewelry. She is a goddess.

Unfortunately, even goddesses occasionally mis-step. This mis-step involves a textured purple mermaid dress and an sad eggplant jacket with black bordello fringe.

Helen, love. You do better by playing up your tremendous, age-defying, ah…um…well…assets. Toss off that jacket. Hike up your skirt. Throw back your shoulders. And work the red carpet with confidence that you look better than almost anyone else your age.

Oh noe Zoe!

It seems that, between her hectic styling career and her Bravo TV show, Rachel Zoe still has some extra time on her hands. Cuz she has obviously picked up latch hook, and insists on wearing her crafty items to the Salvatore Ferragamo show in Milan.

Seriously, come on. The dress is plaid. And bulky. And fringed. And shapeless. And cowl-necked. Who can wear that? And, more importantly, why would they want to wear a Scottish throw rug?

Opera fan

Does anyone really like opera? I would be shocked if 1% of the western world actually liked opera. But perhaps I am just not cultured enough.

The best and brightest showed up for last night’s 125th Opening Night Gala of the Metropolitan Opera photo op. And knock me silly, 15 year-old Taylor Momsen is an opera fan! (Unless she had it confused with a Jonas Brothers concert?)

Anyhoo, Parker Posey showed up looking like the love child between Rumer Willis and Little Bo Peep. The Zac Posen dress is a blousey, flowy, bowey, pastel mess. And the cotton ball tote really pushes it past any legal limits of cuteness.
