Boho chic?

It’s been a little quiet on the wires today. Mary-Kate is smiling and Britney is actually wearing clothes. Banner day for fashion critics!

Normally Elle MacPherson’s dress at Elton John’s “White Tie and Tiara” ball would stay under the radar screen. Not stellar, but not completely inappropriate in a Naomi-Campbell-in-a-sheer-gown sort of way. Since today’s been dullsville, we’re posting Elle MacPherson.

First, I’ll say that I’m sure it’s not fun to spend an evening with your ex — and the father of your children — right after he got engaged to another woman. And gave her an 8-carat rock. So, kudos to her for being there with her chin up. Second, I’ll say that the event had a beach theme. How a beach theme, white tie and diamonds all go together, I’m not sure. Most people seemed to skip over the beach part, and dressed for the white tie and diamonds part. Smart move.

Our lady Elle went for “bohemian chic.” What an oxymoron, like jumbo shrimp or freezer burn. I’m not in love with her necklace-as-headband look or her beaded-necklace-to-your-knees look. The gold mesh of the dress looks a little polyester-ish to me. And the floral/fringe shawl is totally distracting.

On an unrelated note, it feels like Elizabeth Hurley is always wearing the same darn dress. I’m all for knowing what looks good on you, but she is ALWAYS wearing a solid dress with a tight bodice that shows off the girls and a full skirt. And it’s usually Versace. Snooze. Snooze. Snooze.

Golden girls

Dear Diary, 

For Nelson Mandela’s birthday party I think I’ll wear a dress inspired by The Golden Girls. He is ninety, after all. And I just love that show! Betty White is a riot, and Rue McClanahan is one saucy lady.

Picture it. Sophia Petrillo escapes from the lanai in her muumuu and hauls butt to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. She goes to some parades and even snags a few gold beads and a handful of doubloons, until that wacky Bea Arthur finds her and hauls her back to Shady Pines.
