Fuglissa Leo

Oh, wacky Melissa Leo. Sometimes it’s the little things.

I mean, the blazer and the scarf and maybe even the dress wouldn’t register much on their own. But throw them all together and then add lace leggings (?) and brown brogue-ish booties, and suddenly she’s the lady in your building you hope will never be in the elevator with you when it gets stuck, because she’ll start doing aura readings, sing a rendition or two of “It’s A Hard-Knock Life,” and then tell you in uncomfortably explicit anatomical detail how reading 50 Shades of Grey awakened the erotic spirit animal coiled inside her pelvis.

    Did you see her guest spot on “Louie”? It was disturbing on so many deep, deep levels. It also explains the deep levels from which she conjured this outfit.

    Professor Trelawney….is that YOU on the red carpet?

    • miriam

      Lol. She is definitely channelling Trelawney.

      She looks like an art teacher here. Never a good thing really.

    Wow – looks like she was dressing to have lunch with my roommate at a hippy dive in Venice that smells like hemp and burned sage. There will DEFINITELY be a conversation about the waking of coiled spirit animals in the pelvis.

    pretty sure this was teal when the original owner caught the bouquet in it.

  5. Kate

    you had me at “erotic spirit animal.”

      Made me choke I was laughing so hard. Quietly. In my office where I’m supposed to be working.

  6. Megan

    This looks too affected to me, like she’s trying too hard. I hate that.

  7. Ruth

    Aside from the fact that the outfit is crazy, I hope she’s at an event in Nunavut because it’s too damn hot for that outfit this summer in the continental U.S.

    I would hate to be stuck in an elevator with her for all the reasons you listed, plus the added bonus that no doubt the air would be drenched in the pungent aroma of patchouli.

  9. Lindy

    Crazy cat lady.

  10. Sajorina

    OMG! Is she wearing everything she owns at once? She isn’t homeless, right? RIGHT?!

    I like her as an actress, and I like the glasses. I even lthink some of her outfit is okay. Bue I definitely agree with everyone. Let’s just say we’ve got a lot of elements going on here. Plus, I don’t think the scarf matches. I know it’s a different print and color, which can work. It just doesn’t match. (Not to mention the shoes, which I like, but they also don’t match).

    I agree that she is trying too hard to be “wacky”. When she dropped the f-bomb at the Academy Awards, it seemed very intentional and rehearsed. She isn’t happening.

  13. Corriner

    This makes her snowflake-cutout dress from the Oscars look like a well-played.

  14. Sandra

    Maybe she has a thyroid problem. You feel cold all the time and your brain doesn’t work properly.

  15. Shiitake

    Dressing in the dark again.

  16. amy

    I think each item is indeed pretty horrendous on its own. I’d love to see the contents of her closet. Based on the pictures that have been on this site, I’ll bet there are no two things that go together.

  17. Mahastee

    I love how insane this is. It’s all fun and games until the elevator gets stuck.

  18. anny

    I dunno, I’m gettin’ a Streep vibe here. Maybe it’s the glasses, maybe it’s the six extra yards of fabric …

  19. Sonya

    I think singing “Hard Knock Life” would be a great way to pass the time while stuck in an elevator.

  20. Guerra

    Every single thing she is wearing is hideous !

  21. alex

    But I think it is nice.

  22. ML

    Man… Seeing this, I just had a flashback to that “Women’s Writing in Context of Postmodern Western Literature” course I took during my junior year(s) of college. And I feel a compelling need to ask Melissa Leo if I should write my term paper in MLA style or the lesser-utilized APA.

  23. valentine

    I want to be her. Aura readings and spiritual pelvic animals? What more could a girl ask for?

  24. vandalfan

    Was she seen roaming around Portland, Oregon?
