Times are tough, so I’m all for being thrifty, economical, and creative when it comes to avoiding a massive shopping spree. But I do wish Lea Michele had thought a little harder about it before making a dress out of super-absorbent quilted paper towels. Yes, you don’t have to worry about returning it to the designer later, but if someone spills anything on you — or you sweat under the lights — you’re in for a little awkward salt-water tailoring. In fact, maybe that accounts for the terrible length choice here: It had a train, but it melted after her soon-to-be-ex puddle-wrangler failed to do the job right.
