We were just talking about how Cobie Smulders never seems to look exactly the same to me. I don’t know what it is about her — I watch How I Met Your Mother, so it’s not as if I don’t know who she is, but on the red carpet the other night, Jess and I were both like, “Who is that brunette?” And it took them putting her name on the screen for us to go, “Oh, RIGHT.”
Luckily for her, our “Oh, RIGHT” was infused with happy, and not notes of, “Oh, how sad that Cobie Smulders just smoked a bowl of crack powder with Lohan essence.” I think she may have been the only person who went with this aqua color, and it was to great effect. The hair was a trifle confusing — that one really light streak in the front kept looking like she’d ripped it off of one of Paula’s aura unicorns — but really, that is a minor quibble. Everything else is pretty. And yes, it’s possible I am smiling more favorably upon her because she was in the Emmytones, and I KNOW you all probably want me to shut up about the poor Emmytones, and I promise this will be the last time I bring it up. Really, I think it all boils down to: I’m upset they didn’t just let it go full-on Robin Sparkles. I mean, the natural step after going to the mall, and building sandcastles in the sand, is, like, emanating funk at the Emmys, right, or emulating Emmy (she could’ve been in an actual statuette costume), or emulsifying an Emmy in a Vitamix… So many possibilities. At least this possibility was the right one.
