Fugger: Florence Welch
Met Ball Well Playeds and Hmms and Zzzs: More Celebs Who Look Perfectly Fine, Mostly, But Also Seriously Could Be Absolutely Anywhere Else
On one hand, I love Florence Welch, and I’d never want to see her Florence Welch-ness extinguished. She SHOULD wear the colorful and the wacky and the off-kilter, because it’s her — and she’s never tacky, even when she looks extreme.
But I would never wish a bandeau bra/tulle top ON ANYONE. In fact, this might actually just be a bra-top (I can’t tell if those are straps hanging down, or a matching trim on her “sleeves”), but I assure you, that doesn’t make it better. The Dog Days are supposed to be OVER, Florence! Get with your own program!
Florence here seemed STOKED to lose to Kelly Clarkson last night, and that was very endearing. Anyone who loves Kelly is okay by me — and, frankly, are there two women singing today who create better Belt It Out In The Car Music than the two of them? NO. And I feel like “Stronger” and “Shake It Off” are probably two extremely strong entries on the all-time list of Songs Best Suited to Go On a Break-Up Mix, along with “Single Ladies” and “We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together” and “I Will Survive” and “Cry Me a River” and so on and so forth. So it’s likewise good news that she looked pretty awesome:
You know our feelings about a redhead in green AND sequins AND, sure, she has spikes on her arms like a dinosaur, but what you might not know is that we ALSO like dinosaurs.
