This is not very heroine chic.
It’s sexy and it’s snazzy and it pops (!) but it’s not heroine chic. Until this happened:
The Met Ball is the most fun night for fashion every year. Or as the ponies would say: BEST. NIGHT. EVER. Unlike other red carpet events, the Met Ball is about fashion. Fashion takes center stage, legitimately, and so we get:
Coco Rocha as a humanized My Little Pony. Humanizing the ponies in art and cosplay is a huge part of the Pony and Brony fandom (my family is planning it for an upcoming convention ourselves). But I never expected to see it so CLEARLY on the red carpet. Basically, Coco is my fashion hero FOREVER for this.
Although she’s in Fluttershy’s colors, she’s rocking Pinkie Pie’s attitude: this is MY party. But don’t worry, I found the other ponies.
I recently returned from Disney World and I already want to go back. But do you know there are rules about cosplay in the Magic Kingdom? If you are old enough to be mistaken for a Disney Princess you will not be admitted to a Disney park in princess costume (I did once go to EPCOT dressed as Fleur Delacour). So what’s a girl to do?
Ready-to-Wear Princess is both more simple and more difficult to pull off than Ready-to-Wear Superhero. Princess-like attire — soft, feminine, pretty — is ubiquitous in the girls and women’s sections. But this also makes it less distinctive. So it’s important to pay attention to detail. What’s most characteristic of Snow White’s look?
It’s National Princess Week! To celebrate, my daughters and I watched Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Snow White was the original Disney Princess after all, and seventy-five years later, she is having a banner year!
The title of this post is not meant to refer to the fact that newly single Zac Efron was photographed with every young woman at the awards show (but just sos you know, he was). No, it refers to the parade of actresses 16 to 26 that peopled the Peoples Choice “red” (it’s blue) carpet.
Let’s start with MY choice for Best New TV Drama, here are the Hellcats (Aly Michalka and Ashley Tisdale):
Where R-Patz sparkles, K-Stew shines:
I love this picture. She looks so MEAN. As for the Dolce and Gabanna, it suits her. I don’t like the necklace or the nail polish — both look like she’s going for “I don’t care”. As does the hair, but it’s been worse.
Remember when Kristen Stewart wore a long black gown to the Oscars and looked amazing AND amazingly like she was going to punch someone?
At least in this one (Chanel) it looks like she could follow through with the punching without too much damage to the dress.
But K-Stew wasn’t the only one who wanted to give a little peek at her gams.
Okay, she is not my pick for Best Dressed (!) but she is my pick for Most Superheroine-y. And it’s not just because she has all sorts of experience with the whole secret identity thing (it helps) but look:
She looks like a bruiser in a ballgown. She looks like she is hulking up! Look!
