Emmy Rossum in Monique Lhuillier
Kittens, perhaps you have noticed that we’re being a little more critical than usual this week. There’s a very good reason for that. Actually, there are two very good reasons.
- We’ve been hit by a late-summer onslaught of poorly styled celebs.
- We’re eschewing carbs in preparation for all our pretty, pretty Fashion Week outfits and we’re cranky as fuck.
We tend to think it’s a combination of both.
Anyway, it’s time to hand out some compliments and Emmy’s just the gal who deserves them.

THAT. Is a KILLA dress. The kind of dress that, when it really works and suits the wearer, she’s not going to need to ask anyone how she looks in it. Bitch KNOWS how she looks in it. Hence, the Mona Lisa smirk she’s sporting (if Mona Lisa said things like “Eat it, bitches. I look fucking incredible,” which, come to think of it, does kind of sound like something Mona Lisa should be saying).
Our point is, she looks fierce and she knows it. And we’ll say this right now: if some little blonde chickie walked out in this dress, we’d almost certainly rag on the color. We sometimes seem to be the cheese that stands alone on the question of pink, but it really is one of the more difficult colors to pull off (especially saturated pinks like this) and isn’t quite as universally flattering as it’s sometimes presented. Emmy has the perfect coloring for this shade.
Having said all that, the pink lipstick and silly putty shoes were not the best choices in the world, but we’re trying to remain positive here. If she wore that on Project Runway, then we hope Heidi and Nina brought their A game, because this look’s a shoo-in for winning that week’s Judging the Judges competition.
