Every time I see Rashida Jones, I think of the way Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope addresses her on Parks and Rec. You know, like, “ANN PERKINS! You are beautiful and organized!” (Leslie is very into positive reinforcement of her ladyfriends, which is one of the reasons she is lovely.) Except I think, “RASHIDA JONES! You are beautiful and unnecessarily droopy!”
This is actually better in photos than it was in movement on the live-feed Monday night, but I am still consistently perplexed by how someone so gorgeous — sprung from the loins of Peggy Lipton and Quincy Jones, for pete’s sake! — so often looks so much like the conductor on the last train to Dowdsville. Do you think she just decided, “eh, how can I top Peggy Lipton? I’m just gonna wear whatever”? This isn’t bad. But it’s also not a home run. I don’t know if I’ve EVER seen her hit a home run. HIT A HOME RUN, RASHIDA. I know you can do it. Rashida Jones! You’re beautiful and rich! HIT A HOME RUN!
PS to Brooklyn Decker there on the side: your Shit, I’m Totally In This Picture, Aren’t I? face is hilarious. Never change.
