Oscars: Meryl Streep in Lanvin
Like her win for Best Actress (which prompted the biggest gay gasp either of us ever gay-gasped), we want to like this dress more than we actually like it.
Everything above the neck looks fabulous; totally regal and grande dame in a way that only a gal who’s earned the title can rock it. And we like the idea of a metallic gold gown on Mary Louise. It’s just glamorous enough, but it’s got a maturity to it that prevents it from looking frivolous in a way that doesn’t suit her. But we can’t deny, this basically looks like a belted swatch of gold fabric. It’s got about as flattering as a bathrobe. And we’re sorry, Mary Louise, we love you and we promise we’ll get over our conflicted feelings regarding your win (Pro: Queen of the American Cinema and too long between wins. Con: Fucking Viola, dammit.), but we CANNOT sign off on those “casino bus trip” geriatric shoes you’re sporting.
