Anna Paquin for V Magazine
Darlings, you come here presumably because you’re kind of bitchy. And like fireflies in the night, bitchy people find themselves congregating with other bitchy people. So here’s something bitchy: Sookie goes retro and we think it’s the worst styling decision we’ve seen in ages.

But first, actressalia:
On simulating sex with her husband Stephen Moyer on set: “Maybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people. But it’s really not. When it’s a love scene with someone you actually love it’s not ‘Can I touch him here, can I touch him there’ You know what your boundaries are, or aren’t I suppose.”
On her bisexuality: “Frankly no one had ever asked me before… There is a lot of prejudice against us but the more people talk about it, the less of a deal it will be. Who people choose to sleep with – or spend their lives with-shouldn’t matter, not that anyone particularly cares who I’m attracted to.”
On fans fawning all over her husband: “There is probably something wrong with me, but I find it amusing to watch these men and women fawn all over him. It’s not like anyone is really trying to do anything inappropriate. They just want him to hug them… or bite them.”
She seems inoffensive enough; considering she’s talking mostly about sex. We’re here to talk about the pictures:
We’re sorry; this just doesn’t work on any level. The clothes are great; fantastic in some cases, but everything they did north of the neck looks awful. There are any number of actresses who could rock a retro look, including the wigs, but one test shot should have made it clear that Anna’s not one of those gals. She’s much better when you do her up a little more glam, with a modern kind of runway feel to it. She’s got the kind of features that take well to really theatrical styling, but retro is definitely not in her repertoire; at least not this kind of retro.
