Weddings or coronations

I really like the front of Elizabeth Banks’ Kaufman Franco dress for the London premiere of W. It photographed beautifully.

Until I saw this photo. This length of train is only appropriate at a wedding or a coronation. Otherwise, it is unnecessary and excessive. The dress would be just as pretty without the train, or with a reasonably sized one.

Rockette

Elizabeth Banks chose a very tinsel-y, bead-y, glitter-y Rockette Dolce and Gabbana minidress for the premiere of Zach and Miri Make a Porno (which I have absolutely zero desire to see).

I’m not crazy about the dress, but am even less crazy about the fact that she looks twice her age in it. The Jackie O hairdo, the matchy-matchy prom shoes and purse, and the staid accessories mature her way to much.

She channeled way too much Laura Bush and not enough Miri.
