I’m not sure what inspired Kate Bosworth’s Loewe dress.

Perhaps some oysters in wedding apparel? Or the fog character in those Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwich commercials?

I kissed a girl

Zooey Deschanel seems to be going for the Lily Allen look-alike award. The outfit, the hair, the pose. I don’t like that trend. Next thing you know she’ll have a Christmas tree on her head. It starts innocently with some shimmery silver tights and is a slippery downhill slope from there.

Maybe it’s just the Monday blahs, but I can’t get a lot of excitement going for Ashley Judd’s dress. I don’t hate it, but it feels very heavy handed. There is *a lot* going on, with the flowers and the sash and the pattern and the length.

It ain’t a costume party. You don’t need to come dressed like the matador’s senora.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, oh how you tease us. You usually show up braless in some quirky caftan outfit from 1942. Then you come to the Dark Knight premiere looking fab-u-lous, and we think there is hope. Our heart swells with the promise of brighter days.

Only to have out heart sink once again. What is this? From the velvet Glad bag couture line? With a matching Zsa Zsa Gabor head turban and a chest rosette? Why, Lord, why? Why does she tease us so? Why are do we allow our hopes to rise, only to be dashed again?

Kung fu hips

June 27, 2008 at 10:07 am (Corsage, Lucy Liu) (, , , , )

At first glance, there is a lot to like about this Giambattista Valli dress.The bodice is beautiful, red is lovely on Lucy Liu, corsage is nice. Good so far. Then you scroll down, and see the jumbo marshmallow of a skirt. WHAT!?!

It does a good job of making her waist look minuscule. But that’s accomplished by making her hips look gi-normous, and oddly Marie Antoinette-like. I don’t dig the second corsage in the front crotch area. And what exactly is that fabric? It looks a little bit like she is molting.

You say it’s your birthday

Now we know what to get Solange Knowles for her 22nd birthday– a makeover! She seems to have gone to the Amy Winehouse beauty school for her hairdo. Doesn’t she look a little bit like Kevin Garnett in drag?
