In or Out: Helen Mirren
Oh, kittens. We’re afraid our “Red Carpet End Times” prediction has come true. First Iman, then Cate, and now, Queen Helen of Fuckinfantastica has taken a wrong turn. No reports on Swinton yet, but the world waits to see if she can save us all.
What we have here is someone who panicked at the last minute. What we have here is hysteria-based accessorizing. For whatever reasons – perhaps the coming fashionpocalypse? – Queen Helen took one look at herself in a crazy flattering dress that sets off both her figure and her coloring and … covered it up with a lot of crap. Granted, the dress is not without its issues; namely, those flounces running down the front of the skirt. Could have done without those. But otherwise, the dress really looks fantastic on her. So why, Queen Helen? Why did you put a tacky chain belt on? Why the chandelier earrings for a look that didn’t need them? And finally, WHY ARE YOU WEARING A GIGANTIC HEAVY SCARF IN JUNE, DEAR? You can’t possibly be THAT chilly in a sleeved dress in June. And if you are that chilly, than a bolero jacket or something would have been a better idea. Oh Queen Helen. Not you too.
IN! T Lo, I don’t know what’s gotten into you, but she looks FINE!
OUT! It is The End Times! Woe! Woe to us for being unfabulous!
The Minion Opinions on yesterday’s two “IN or OUT” posts were as follows:
Kim Kardashian’s belly dancing businesswoman look got a very loud OUT.
Cate Blanchett’s bargain cruise director togs got an equally loud (and distressed) OUT as well. Hold us, darlings.
