This woman doesn’t age.
Also, if you think this is just a blouse, then you don’t know her very well.
Here are two things I’ve learned from doing postings this Halloween: 1) I am pretty sure Chris Brown’s costume is going to make your head explode, and b) I’d best not even try to ID most of these costume for fear of angering Fug Nation when I get it wrong. Some folks are REALLY disgusted that I happen not to have seen Moonlight Kingdom. It’s like I personally knifed them, just because I can’t watch or get to the movies as much as I’d like. Please forgive, Fug Nation. I hate it when we fight. At LEAST wait until I can acquire and don some leggings as pants, so that your disappointment can be complete.

I recognize that this is an enormous amount of animal print. It’s an embarrassment of animal print. Even a leopard is looking at this and going, “Lady, tone it down. You’re not out on the savanna.”
However, she’s carrying it off as much as anyone ever will. I mean, if you’re going to see a celebrity in this suit — if it is inevitable — you want it to be either Gwen Stefani or Sharon Stone. Wait, now I’m sad it wasn’t Sharon Stone. SHARON. Why have you forsaken us?
There are a lot of times I don’t subscribe to the philosophy, “Gwen Stefani is cooler than thou.” But this is not one of them. No offense to thee, obviously.
I’ve talked before about how I don’t like giving people a pass for stuff just because of who they are — even SWINTON, really. She’s awesome to behold, and all, but if she looks insane I’m not pulling the punch. Ditto Gwen Stefani. However, there are definitely times when Gwen and her ilk can pull off something few others could, and she wore one such outfit to the Coldplay concert this weekend:
I mean, I would look ridiculous in that outfit. People would be all, “Are you in costume as one of the T-Mobile girl’s bike mechanics?” And yet on Gwen it looks natural and casual and cool. Even with the clashy red lipstick. Well done, madam. I don’t love your belt, but your moxie is appreciated.
Not all of this is bad, it’s true. But what does it say about the situation that GINNIFER GOODWIN managed to be one of the best-dressed people there? No, it’s true. You’ll see.
