Fugger: Rachel McAdams

Boringly/Boredly Played: Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal


The Southpaw promotional trail, winding through the ESPYs and whatnot, has been… curious.

That dress feels like she’s running out of steam and just wants to go home. And I am not sure Jake ever had any steam to run out of; at all these events, at least from what I’ve seen, she comes off like she’s trying to smile and manufacture some chemistry while he’s all but stroking his beard and musing, “Is Nietzsche right that objectivity is a fallacy? Did the notion of perfection create imperfection, or vice versa? What ARE numbers? Why is Fox Sports One in the 200s on DirecTV but Fox Sports Prime all the way up in the 600s? UNIVERSE, THY QUIRKS PLAGUE MY SLEEP.”

ESPYs Fine or Fab: Rachel McAdams


I hope their chemistry is better in the movie. (In fairness, it looks like it was very warm and bright there, meaning her choice of outfit may not have been optimal and her lack of sunglasses may have been devastating.)

Fug or Fab: Rachel McAdams in Zuhair Murad


I’m sorry for Rachel McAdams that season two of True Detective is so boring, and not as well-received as the first — although frankly, I disliked the last half of season one so hard that I am not surprised this happened. But I do think she is someone whose career has been something of a curiosity, and her small role in Southpaw (or at least, based on the previews it seems to be small) adds to the intrigue. Basically I don’t know where this car is going, and if she doesn’t want to use GPS that’s fine, but I hope she at least has one of those AAA maps kicking around the backseat somewhere in case of emergency.

Anyhoo:

I like this better than I expected to, but there’s something jarring to me about the flight of the funeral blossoms across her chest. It adds interest, yeah, but it also feels kind of like she got attacked by them. Like someone shot her with a flower gun.

First of all, I love her haircut. Second of all, does it make her look strongly like Elizabeth Banks?

Third: Maybe Elizabeth Banks and Rachel McAdams should play sisters in something. Part of this reaction might be stemming from the fact that this seems like something Elizabeth Banks might wear: A little wacky, a bit left of center, something that takes a strong red carpet personality to pull off, something that MIGHT be moderately insane?

I loved her as Regina George but I do not miss her Regina George hair. Which is neither here nor there; I just needed an introduction to this slideshow, and her hair in that movie has always bothered me, so I decided to pick the scab. It happens.

Met Gala Feh Carpet: Rachel McAdams in Ralph Lauren


Rachel’s head is par excellence:

And her gown is rosy, ill-fitting narcolepsy. I try not to judge too harshly by adherence to theme, because some of them are hard to follow, but seriously, did anyone put ANY thought into this, or did the people at Ralph Lauren** just fish it out of a musty closet somewhere and hope it fit her? She’s REGINA FREAKING GEORGE, PEOPLE. She fractured her spine and she still looked like a rock star. I want more for her.

** I had seen it reported as Calvin Klein, but it’s apparently Ralph, and now that I think about it, there ARE some similarities with Lupita’s better cape dress from the Golden Globes. Should’ve figured that one out. I AM FIRED.

Well Played, Rachel McAdams


Usually I don’t go for the keyhole dresses, but I think this looks great on her:

I think it’s because it’s fitted well, so everything is divinely wrangled in it. But it MIGHT be because the bodice makes a giant W, and it’s exerting mind control and subconscious suggestion to convince me to call it a Win and Wonderful and Well Played and Wow and WHEEEE and all manner of other complimentary Ws. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go watch reruns of Will & Grace and listen to the Wicked soundtrack and buy a bunch of wigs and join Weight Watchers and wink at people and eat a Whatchamacallit. For no reason.
