    Not only is Naomi’s jumpsuit sub-par (for her, I can think of at least a dozen starlets whose look would be much improved with this *shudder* jumpsuit), but Liev seems to have upped the ante on his own look. I mean… he rarely looks bad, but he’s particularly hansome here.

    Do you think Anna will ever change her hair? Or does she just walk into her closet and choose one of 500 perfectly bobbed wigs to plop on her head? That necklace is amazing though.

    ALT looks like Violet Beauregarde’s uncle, you know the one that turned into a cantaloup when his everlasting gobstopper got to the fruit salad.

    Props to Cicely Tyson for being out and about, and showing the young whippersnappers how it’s done!

    I wish there was a back view of Keisha dress featured, the gold embroidery is unexpected and absolutely gorgeous.

    Anyone else think there was something weird going on with Lenny K’s one pantleg?

      I think his jacket has tails and the way they’re falling behind him makes his pantlegs look uneven.

        I had figured it out by the time I posted my comment, but I did have to peer very closely to figure out that it was, in fact, one of his coattails and not some very weird kind of one-legged overshorts. Please don’t let those exist.

    I want André Leon Talley to be my spirit guide.

    “Be My Panty Ho”! I’m dying…

    It says something when Lenny has nicer heels on than Anna.

      Anna Wintour wears the same shoes with everything, to every event!

    What, no comment on Lenny’s sparkle shoes? Those are amazing!

    Forest Whitaker shrank . . . a lot.

      I was quite alarmed to think she was dating Forrest Tucker.

      (And a big tip of the hat to F-Troop fans!)

        Ha ha! Although Forrest Tucker did have a certain . . . reputation . . . in Hollywood, that makes me think he was never hurting for dates–google it.

    ‘Be My Panty Ho’ just made me absolutely lose it on a packed train.

    I read that as “Ke$ha” and had the greatest moment of cognitive dissonance ever.

    Cicely Tyson looks amazing! But what happened to Forest- he looks about half his usual size?

    ALT’s caftan is clearly intended for levitation. Honestly, doesn’t he look like he’s about to rise several inches in the air and glide to his destination?

    ALT’s caftan is hilarious. It’s like a puffy cloud of cult/graduation gown-themed ethereal mustard. Not the yucky yellow kind, but something French and spicy. (I just pictured him saying, “Crusty Jugglers” line from Hot Fuzz and it worked, although hooded would’ve been better)

    Not a fan of NW’s jumpsuit, but she looks pretty. Her man looks good, but I can never get over how giant his head is. It disturbs me and that is on me.

    Love Forrest Whitaker. (Ghost Dog is one of my favorite movies and he is fantastic in Bird and Last King of Scotland) His wife looks beautiful. He looks slim and great.

      I read an interview where Liev said that critics always brought up the topic of his giant “watermelon head” before they said anything about his acting–he thought it was funny. In any case, I’ll go with an oversized head vs a too small one, but that’s me.

        I’m with ya, Mari. Liev has to be at least 6’2″ or so. Could you imagine a man that height with a small pin head? Yikes! His head is a perfectly handsome one that goes along with all the other handsomeness he possesses.

    I used to think Terrence Howard was so beautiful and wonderful, but once I heard about the revolting ways he refers to women, I can hardly stand to look at him anymore (eg, his refusal to date women if he discovers they don’t have baby wipes in their bathrooms–I won’t go into more detail, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg) I’m glad he’s shot himself in the foot with his “difficult” reputation if it means I won’t have to see him in films anymore.

    After Terrence Howard’s domestic abuse claims, I don’t think his career is gonna get any better. Rightly so after I saw his wife’s massive black eye.

    I like oprahs dress!!

    Liev looks delicious and I like Naomi’s outfit! LOVE them! I remember when Oprah was on her Tina Turner’s phase and it seems she’s on her Diana Ross’ phase now! And I love that Anna Wintour and ALT are considered a couple… I like her dress and find his caftan hilarious! Plus, Keisha & Forrest look GREAT!

    Oprah’s hair is like a pillow against Stedman’s shoulder.
