I’m almost wistful for the days when Amanda Peet was reliably one of the least pulled-together people on the red carpet. I’ve always had this total soft spot for her — The Whole Nine Yards is a stupid guilty pleasure of mine, and she was the only person on Studio 60 who wasn’t made of awful. There’s just something super likable and natural about her to me, and for whatever weird reason, her cuckoo sartorial choices added to that.
All that said, I’m also — paradoxically — so pleased that she’s pulling out some glamour. This is nice and elegant and polished, and I assume she and Sarah Paulson spent the rest of the night inside arm-wrestling Busy Philipps and Michelle Williams for Best-Dressed Platonic Life Partners.
