There are two things I love about this picture of the back of McAdams’s dress:
1) The expression of delight on the face of that cute girl wearing the scarf. She is so pleased! It’s awesome. And:
2) The actual back of Rachel McAdams’s dress.
I don’t know how I feel about the black shoes — they feel a little bit like she broke the heel off the metallic shoe she originally planned to wear with this, and had to make the swap at the last minute — but the rest of this is kind of great, no?
I mean, a little dash of Marilyn Monroe never hurt anyone. As long as it’s the Stylistic Marilyn Monroe, not the Bad Relationships/Drug Abuse/Really Sad parts of Marilyn Monroe. Those parts, you should probably stay away from, regardless of how good they might make you look.
I went through so many pictures of this photo call, trying to find one where McAdams here isn’t posing with her hands on her hips. This was the best I could find:
Girl, when you’ve got do-dads on your hips, you don’t want to be squashing them with your hands! That’s like the designer dress equivalent of a bride spending her wedding reception sitting on her bouquet. That being said, I think this is pretty swell. White is hard to wear without veering into bridal — or into Hey, I Look As Pale and Wan As If I Just Spent the Last Six Weeks in a Sanitarium — but I think she manages to avoid both those pitfalls. Also: that Ron Livingston-alike in the background is cute. That has nothing to do with her outfit, I just thought I’d note it.
How do you like it? COMMENT IT UP. Also, do we think she and Michael Sheen are engaged? Because I love that idea. (So this post is a little extra gossip-y and all over the place. IT HAPPENS.)
