The Curious Case of Chloe Bennet’s Fashion Choices

Here’s Agents of Shield‘s Chloe Bennet at the Captain America : The Winter Soldier red carpet premiere:

I thought to myself, cute… but wow that dress looks like a napkin. Then I went backwards through her appearances and I discovered: Chloe Bennet REALLY LIKES napkin dresses.

The Winter Soldier Red Carpet Rundown

Captain America: The Winter Soldier had its red carpet premiere in Los Angeles last night and the stars were shining (no stripes though).

What a nice welcome from Sharon Carter aka Emily Van Camp. Who else is in this movie? Read the rest of this entry »


Heroine Chic on the Hunger Games Red Carpet

Basically everyone decided the Catching Fire Red Carpet Premiere called for #heroinechic. Which is wholly appropriate to the subject matter if you think about it (just don’t think about it TOO much or you realize we are not playing the part of the resistance…).

There are a lot of pictures so let’s jump right in with, appropriately, Katniss aka Jennifer Lawrence:
Katniss Everdeen

KICK. ASS.

Fantasy Chic at the Grammys

Princess Rihanna wasn’t the only getting her high fantasy on at last night’s Grammy Awards. High Fantasy Chic was all over the red carpet.

Here’s Taylor Swift (in J Mendel) looking every bit the Elven Princess. Read the rest of this entry »


Which Twilight Actress Wants to be Wonder Woman?

So, I don’t like this look. She looks pretty because she is pretty and it’s a pretty dress, too, but it’s not a great fit for her body–

Superheroine of the Night: Eva Longoria

ALMA Awards Host Eva Longoria really wanted the title.

This was a pretty good start. It has a heroine chic edge. But that wasn’t enough for Eva. She also wore this:

Superheroine of the Night: Iman

The Style Awards kicked off New York Fashion Week Wednesday night and while Katie Holmes made her first post-Tom appearance, Nicole Richie pulled out cut-outs, and Ed Westwick teased the last season of Gossip Girl in what plays like a secret casting bid for new Batman…Iman won the night for superheroes.

Because, IMAN.

Also this has always been my favourite Catwoman outfit:

Superhero of the Night: Robert Downey Jr.

You know, when I suggested that Gwyneth Paltrow reads my blog I was kidding. But:

RDJ wore Ready-to-Wear Iron Man to comic con. Like. Literally.

It’s best summed up by a comment that flew past my twitter feed while I was on vacation last week, a comment I just sort of giggled at while on the beach and forgot about until I saw THIS:

“I see Tony Stark wore his Robert Downey Jr. Suit to comic con this year.”


Superhero of the Night: Andrew Garfield

It’s hard for a guy to win Superhero of the Night at a blacktie event. There are those — like Alan Cummings — who go for it and get rewarded for their weirdness (though note that I labelled him a villain). But there’s just not that much play for the boys side. Mostly everybody looks like this:

Now before you go pointing out my Spidey-bias (note: I am totally biased) Andrew didn’t win just because he happens to play a superhero. Wolverine and Cyclops were also there! And NPH did a super-swell job as host. But Andrew gets the title for moments like this:

What do you see, Gwen and Peter?

Superheroine of the Night: Naomi Watts

I think Naomi Watts was mad I said she’d aged out of playing Carol Danvers (if Carol is headlining what should be her origin story she should be younger than 40) because she showed up to the Glamour Women of the Year Awards wearing this:

Hello!

Now, from the front this is barely heroine chic at all (though she went with the messy ponytail so I think she was pushing for it): Read the rest of this entry »
