Oscars 2009 – Part 3
Oh Mary Louise. On the one hand, we think this is the best you’ve looked on the red carpet in ages; on the other hand, we’re distressed that you’re still dressing as if you’re ten years older and 30 pounds heavier than you are. It’s a lovely muted color and it drapes beautifully. She looks pretty with her shoulders exposed but the dress as a whole isn’t really helping her shape all that much and the “Alice on the Brady Bunch” hair is a big NO. Meryl! You’re still beautiful! Stop rushing headlong into “Grande Dame” territory! There’ll be plenty of time for that later.
Actually, we’re just tired of seeing her, period.
Honey, you’ve done a better job of dressing yourself in the past, so we’re not sure what went wrong here. QL always seemed to know how to show off her curves to maximum effect but this dress is showing off all the wrong curves. It’s a beautiful color but it’s just not flattering.
She looks FLAWLESS. That dress is beautiful and it fits her perfectly. Normally we’d bitch about the washed out color but it looks great against her skin and the layering gives a nice soft textured effect.
The fit on this dress is PERFECT. Kittens, that dress isn’t just “hugging her curves,” it is MAKING LOVE to them. She looks fabulous. On the other hand, that’s a lot of boob and a lot of shiny for a nominee. She might have been better served by toning it down a notch. On the other, other hand, attitude goes a long way and she looks so luminous and so happy that almost anything would have looked amazing on her.
