Fugger: Rachel McAdams
Leaving aside the fact that you can see her bra here — a tactical error, but surely not an intentional one — is it crazy that I kind of love this?
I feel like she’s ten minutes away from walking on screen in an old black and white movie, carelessly tossing her clutch onto a cocktail table, lighting a cigarette (what is unattractive now is so much more glamorous in the Olden Days of Black and White), tossing back a mai tai, and drawling that Hawaii’s awfully dull in early December. Then, of course, the Japanese would attack and she’d have to choose between her old boyfriend Ben Affleck With Frosted Tips and….wait, how’d this turn into Pearl Harbor? That movie’s not even in black and white. REGARDLESS. I wish she were wearing different shoes, but I love how much she loves pattern, and I think this is maybe the only outfit ever to actually nail a Formal Casual dress code.
Lainey says she turned down Devil Wears Prada, which makes me worry that her team doesn’t have the most discerning eye. She’s the sort of actress that the women in the audience can imagine knowing. She feels like our smart, VERY pretty friend — the one we’d hate, but she’s really funny and kind of awesome and she’s dating Michael Sheen. She’s like the anti-Heigl; When you imagine hanging out with her, it doesn’t seem like you’d be spending the whole time talking about HER. That being said, let’s talk about her.
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.
