Fugger: Viola Davis

Fabs and Fabs-Adjacent: Sarah J and Renee and Kelly and Viola


This event was called the Fashion Group International Night of Stars, which implied, to me, more than four. I feel hosed.

Well Played, Viola Davis


Could I love Viola Davis any more?

No. The answer is no. Look how fabulous her skin is. And how amazing she looks in that color. The dress isn’t revolutionary, but the trick is, it doesn’t have to be: The color is great, the cut is flattering, and she is DIVINE, so why fall into the trap of ornate nonsense or avant-garde yada-yada? Sometimes simplicity IS key.

Oscars Fug Carpet: Viola Davis


I love you Viola, but I don’t know if this worked.

THE PROS: The hair is great! The color of this dress is great! And it looks much better in photos that it did on the red carpet.

THE CONS: It goes crazy at the bottom,  like it’s a remnant from a slasher movie about a killer with really aggressive tastes in evening gowns. Like if Heather and I went psychotic. “I hate this….AND HERE’S WHAT I’M GOING TO DO WITH IT.”

THE GOOD NEWS: You didn’t win wearing something that was, ultimately, a bit mediocre . But you’ll win eventually. It’s going to happen. And next time, you can skip the Vera Wang.

Oscars 2012 Red Carpet Prognostication: Best Actress


That’s right, the Oscars are SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY. (Yes, it’s like the Monster Truck Rally of awards shows.) Let’s take a look at what the Best Actress nominees have worn out and about this year and try and guess who will wear what on Sunday — and who will look best and worst. SPECULATION! It’s what’s for lunch.

Who do you think will be best dressed?

NAACP Awards Fug Carpet: Viola Davis


It’s no mystery that I love Viola Davis. I think she is a dish. We saw her at Fashion Week and my god, she is good-looking in person. She looks about 25. (She actually is 46.) I also saw The Help on the plane, and she’s so great it in. I just dig her. THAT BEING SAID:

The women behind her and I are all making the exact same face, which says, “that dress is great, and that color is fab, but we collectively have some doubts about what you’ve decided to do with your boobs because it looks like you shoved two bagels under there.” Don’t get me wrong, Viola. Bagels are AMAZING.  But for they’re for breakfast, not ball gowns.

BAFTAs Well Played, Viola Davis


This is inching toward Prom-ville, but at the last minute takes a hard left at Awesometown, of which I sort of suspect Viola Davis may be the Mayor:

The fabric could so easily be cheesy, but the pink/orange interplay is so good — so Palm Springs and beachy and fresh — that I think it totally works.  I have such a crush on her wardrobe. It’s so full of color, which is such a huge breath of fresh air when it feels like everyone else is slinking up to the red carpet in dresses so neutral they almost cease to exist.
