2010 Golden Globes Awards
There’s something kind of charmingly retro about the whole look. Joan Holloway on maternity leave. The bag and shoes are ridiculously matchy, but we guess that was the idea. If you’re gonna do retro, you might as well take it all the way.
We were a little hard on her the other day, but she deserves some props for always bringing it to the red carpet in a not-boring way. This look is a little prom-y from far away but we love the neckline when you get up close to it.
We want to love this because we love her but that is simply way too much dress for her. The same neckline with a more fitted skirt would have looked great.
January (and January’s gays), PAY ATTENTION: It’s about time you accept your look and stop sabotaging it. Like it or not, you are a classic all-American Hitchcock blonde and as such, you just can’t do “edgy.” It’s not in the cards, honey. Bright red lipsticks and heavy blacks around the eyes – we don’t want to see them again, mkay? Now here’s a tissue. Go to the ladies room and wipe that shit off.
On the other, other hand, it’s a dress perfectly suited for her and she’s wearing it well.
Sandy, color is your friend. It flatters you and it almost makes it look like you want to be on the red carpet having your picture taken. Also, the length. That’s good. A full skirt hides your tendency to stand with your legs far apart, toes pointed out. Now we just need to work on that “Come the fuck ON” look you always have when faced with photographers.
It’s different, sure. We think we’d like it on someone else because on her it just comes off way too “I’m America’s Sweetheart!”
If we were costume designers on a movie and the lead character was an actress in her 40s at an awards show, this is what we would put her in. This is what any costume designer would put her in, because it’s the cliche “aging actress at an awards show” gown.
What makes it doubly bad is, she’s a little young for the aging actress look.
Bow down, fuckers!
