Fugs and Fabs: LBDs


Technically, they’re not all little black dresses — some of them might just be little darkly colored dresses. And actually some of them aren’t little, and one of them isn’t a dress. So let’s revise: Basically, it seems like a lot of people have worn black in the last two days. Might as well herd them.

    Points to Mol for the kicky shoe.

      Points to Mol for a great dress, too. Sienna’s dress is just too young for her, somehow. I could see my 16 year old in that, or even my 10 year old if she were feeling fashionista, but Sienna’s not a kid anymore. Of course, it looks as if Mira Sorvino stole a dress that actually DOES belong to a tween fashionista, because that simply does not fit. Also, Mira, do not get on Kiernan Shipka’s bad side – she is about 3 years away from OWNING that town….

    I actually kind of like Karolina’s jacket and palazzo pant combo, though I wish the pants had a real waistband. And Whoopi left me speechless.

    Whoopi’s dress looks more maternity than ERW……not good.

    Whoopi….. no.

    Man, ERW looks fabulous. Such a simple dress and yet she looks beautiful, classy, and it totally works with her belly.
    (Note to Kardashian: ERW’s dress looks comfortable, too, with no parts of the dress unnecessarily binding the bits that expand during pregnancy).

    The problem with the Turbie Twist is, where do you keep the darned thing? It’ll fall off a towel bar and it would never get dry anywhere else.

    Anyway, I think Hudson looks good, but I’m getting pretty impatient waiting for lipstick that’s a color to make a full comeback. Evan Rachel Wood, VERY good. Great dress, and with her flawless complexion, I even like the little nose stud.

    Noomi Rapace is SO Salander undercover! I can’t help myself, I love it. Cute dress and shoes on Gretchen Mol, too bad about that “Mrs. Garrett’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” hair.

    Sienna Miller raided her little sister’s closet and she should not have done it. Kurkova IMO looks terrible, which is shocking. I wouldn’t have thought it possible. Goldberg I just cannot.

        I hang mine on the hook on the back of the bathroom door.

          I love my Turbie Twist! I hang mine inside out in the hook rack hanging from my bathroom door! It dries off quickly and never falls off!

      I just keep mine on a hook I put on the bathroom wall that’s about 3 inches long.

          I just need to install a hook, which should be done anyway.

    I thought for sure Sienna Miller was Naomi Watts. Huh. Her purse is very good in any case. I love Gretchen Mol’s dress and shoes, if not hair. Though for a split second I feared the sparkly pattern was cut-outs — what a relief to see they’re just shiny sequins!

    • Helen

      Can anybody really tell apart Sienna Miller and Naomi Watts?

      Hmmm… I can’t recall seeing them in the same room together, either…

      • glee

        Easily – one is an amazing acress who always looks well put together AND carries Liev Schriber as her signature accessory.

        The other one is a has-been Wintour protege who missed her bus (like Gretchen Mol, who is reasonably well dressed! Love her shoes).

        • Helen
          0

          Yeah, sorry, still don’t know which is which. But then I’m not sure what a Liev Schreiber is without searching, either.

          Weirdly, I am pretty familiar with Gretchen Mol. I like a lot of really bad movies…

          • Sajorina
            +2

            Helen, if you like bad movies, no wonder you’re not familiar with Liev Shreiber & Naomi Watts! They’re amazing actors and a great couple!

              +2

              Well, I’m sure I’ve seen things with Watts in them (I also like good movies), but her face just isn’t memorable to me. Neither is his, so with him, I don’t even know if I’ve seen him act or not.

    I want to be a lady spy.

    Both Gretchen Mol and Mira Sorvino are so, so naturally pretty. Yet they often look so random on the red carpet. Gretchen, do something with your hair! Mira, put on some eye shadow! IT DOESN”T TAKE MUCH.

    I think Kate Hudson looks amazing – even with the contorted pose.

    And Whoopi has bought a black tent cover. Whiskey Foxtrot Tango, HELP!

    I LOVE Noomi Rapace, and appreciate her as Lisbeth Salander going to Switzerland role!

    I would TOTALLY go to a fashion show for lady spies……………

    And yes, Kim K, please see ERW’s stylist for how to look glam and comfortable (in black, even) while pregnant. It CAN be done.

    Dear God:
    In my next life I want Mira Sorvino’s legs (only in a more chocolatey color). The dress, not so much.

      Mira’s legs–talk about dressing to accentuate the positives!

      right?!
      I mean there are good legs and then there are GREAT legs that you can tell are the perfect match of genetics and good ol’ fashioned WORK.
      Mira’s are that.

    I really don’t care for Evan’s hairdo, and there is a distinct dearth of decent lipstick.

    The thing about Ms Goldberg is that she knows full well she has achieved WHOOPI F’ING GOLDBERG status and can pretty much do whatever she wants. So she does. I’m not denying that her outfit is bizarre and not particularly attractive; just sayin’ that the rules are different on Planet Whoopi.

    Ha. Noomi Rapace: kind of awesome. She looks like Carmen Sandiego.

    I simply do not understand why pregnant women of Hollywood must always oh-so-gently wrap their arms around and accentuate their bellies. Just so the aforementioned bellies do not, God forbid, get hidden away by the dresses! Don’t get me wrong, I’m a mother, I understand the “specialness” of a pregnant woman. But I do not remember having this urge to stick my big bump in people’s faces!
    Yeah, we get it, you’re pregnant… Yawn…

    • Annie E

      I always assume that photographers are yelling for the pregnant woman in question to hold her bump.

    before i even read the caption about noomi i legitimately thought to myself, she looks like the villainess in a french movie about orphans. I’m glad im not the only one!

    Hudson’s dress looks great on her figure here, but she really needs a makeup artist who can flatter her features. She has not been successful at this in recent and not so recent memory.

    Kate Hudson is so beautiful, I kind of hate her. I like her dress and I give her a pass on the pose, it looks like she was adjusting her skirt and the camera caught it. I don’t think she does weird red carpet poses all the time? Mira just looks wrinkled and rumpled and the dress is way too short. I like Sienna’s dress, even though it could be an inch or so longer.

    As to the comment re: Kate Hudson — “Girl, your body is insane.” yes, it is, but she had a modest augmentation in her upper regions, if memory serves me correctly, that assisted that insanity.

      I believe you’re right, Kristin. Initially, I recall, I’d thought it was a natural change after having her second child, but I Googled it (because what’s more fascinating than Famous Boobs? LOL), and the difference all happened in one month, well post-baby.

    Whoopi Goldberg is what – almost 60? And she’s spent her time in the public eye constantly being told how unbeautiful she is. She can wear whatever she wants wherever she wants.

    I love Evan Rachel Wood and what she’s wearing is just perfectly adorable! She looks AMAZING! FAB!!! And I love everything Noomi Rapace is wearing, especially the coat, but I hate the hat! Get rid of the hat and I’m sold!

    ERW for the win! She looks sooo good. Remember when she was dating Marilyn Manson and adopted the Dita Von Teese look? So glad that didn’t last! [nothing against Dita, it works for her; but it was a little too aging on ERW].

    Kate Hudson looks good, to me. Noomi Rapace is interesting, do wish she had done something with her hair to reflect the awesomeness of that ensemble. And I agree with whoever said that Sienna’s dress seems a little childish.

    Whoah, ERW is a sorceress. She doesn’t look pregnant at all to me from the front. Damn her.

    Kate Hudson looks tall, slender, and elegant, despite the pose and simplicity of the dress (can’t even see the Turbie Twist on my iPad screen). But did anyone else think she might be Blake Lively when they saw her?

    ERW looks lovely, although I’m not convinced that she is NOT wearing a maternity dress. If it weren’t intended to be a maternity dress, wouldn’t the front be significantly shorter than the back?
