i’m just going to start with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, because that’s what we’re all here for, right? HOWEVER: He just got cast in The Walking Dead. Now, the finale for that show’s current season is shooting right now, which means he ought to be available to The Good Wife for the remainder of this run. But if he’s due on TWD in season seven… either The Good Wife is ending after this season (the rumor), or The Good Wife isn’t planning on keeping him beyond the May finale. I am not sure I can continue with a revolving door of guys with whom Alicia has sexual chemistry that she totally ignores.
An eagle-eyed Fug National pointed out on Twitter that this is the second time Sienna has experimented with ruffles this year, the first being this Gucci she wore in Cannes.
I did not like that other dress, and yet at least it was committed to the theme. This is like its limp, flighty cousin, who doesn’t really want to go into the family business of being a red-carpet outfit and can only give about thirty percent of its attention to the matter. It is Billy from Melrose Place, briefly feigning an interest in Dad’s Furniture Store, even though we know that won’t last because NOBODY on an Aaron Spelling nighttime soap spends any length of time selling recliners. That episode was painful to watch. This dress might not be as heavy on the mouth-breathing or mullets (although it IS poorly chopped), but it does inspire in me that same sense of, “When will this be over?”
A kind soul alerted me to the fact that we’d forgotten to cover January Jones’ sheer pants. I shrieked before I even saw them. I’m doubling down on that shriek now.
I wish I’d been around to see the conversation that occurred at the Bettany/Connelly household when they each emerged from their respective dressing rooms to show off their chosen look for this event:
I feel like Paul was all, “Jen, you look lovely, but is that dress maybe a bit droopy?” and she was like, “Paul. You’re wearing an ascot.” And then they left the house.
First and foremost: I think she is so stunning, and I need to know more about her lipstick:
That photo is also helpful vis a vis the question of the fabric of this ensemble, which basically reminds me of a handbag I once owned. I ask you: do we want to be walked around wearing our handbags as dresses? Isaac Mizrahi once sent models down the runway with handbags on their heads for hats; this may be the logical next step. (That fashion show, by the way, still stands as one of the most ridiculous events of my life, because NO ONE in the venue even smiled or smirked when the models walked out WITH PURSES BALANCED ON THEIR HEADS, other than me and Heather. People may have been INTERNALLY smiling, but everyone kept on their Serious Fashion Faces. Come on, you guys. Isaac was being cheeky. We’re allowed to respond!)
Here is the entire look:
Eh. Am I wrong to be left cold by this? Am I crazy if I think it might make for a better mini than a full–length dress? DISCUSS!
The erstwhile Lemon Breeland has been taking a walk on the wacky side lately. And I am endlessly grateful. Both because I love a sartorial nutball, and because she’s doing it in ways that are SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING than skirts made of netting. Never change, Jaime, because you are never boring.
Ellie Goulding got pulled into this at the eleventh hour when Rihanna backed out, and that’s a bit of a bummer because I’d love to have seen what Rihanna brought to this party.
