In or Out: Drew Barrymore in Jil Sander
Oh, that reminds us. We have to finish off that 5lb bag of clementines we got over the holidays.
We fully admit that this is probably a reaction to that red carpet salute to mediocrity at the People’s Choice Awards, but we’re kind of digging this. For one: COLOR. Way to go, Drew! Everyone in the entertainment industry seems to be terrified of color. Second: shape. What? We like it! It’s interesting! Quirky! Different! Okay, the gathering on the dress doesn’t hit at the same point on her body that it does on the model, and that’s diminishing the effect, but we really do like the idea behind it. It just needed to be zhuzhed a little and possibly altered. On the other hand, this is probably a dress that only looks good for 3 minutes on a runway.
We’re not opposed to the two-tone hair (although it reminds us of Siamese cats); we just don’t think it works with this dress. We also think she and her gay got high again before putting on her makeup because she’s shiny, with spider-y lashes, too much blush, and old lady lipstick.
But we adore her and she took a risk here so even though it’s not a flawless look, she’s still IN.
