Game of Threads on the Red Carpet

Game of Thrones won the Emmy for Costuming which made me want to analyze the episodes by costume again. I could start with the first season during hiatus. So tempting. But for now, the red carpet:

Bond, Jaime Bond.

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.

Project Runway 12.3

Better known as introduction to RASPBERRY TOWN. Which is easily the best and most reasonable answer to “Give me a word to describe this frozen yogurt so I can make a dress inspired by your word” (which is probably not the least reasonable challenge inception in Project Runway‘s history but nothing more absurd (yet awesome!!) is coming to mind right this moment). Even more awesome “Raspberry Town” was provided by a guy who resembled Thor just enough for me to imagine an amazing Avengers at Coney Island scenario. And that’s not all! Thor answered Raspberry Town to self-described faux Sorority girls Kate and Helen:

And it won. It was very clever of Team Katlen to use those sombreros and the result is nifty and chic and raspberry. Just two things. Read the rest of this entry »


Superheroes at the Oscars: Batmen

I know George Clooney doesn’t like to think about that time he played Batman. I know Bat-fandom, comic fans, cinephiles, and the general population don’t like to think about that time he played Batman. But you know. He did once play Batman.

He knows I’m talking about this and is trying to hurry Stacey on. George, you know she’s wearing ridiculous heels and her mobility is severely impaired by that gorgeous gold dress so you should be more of a gentleman and let go your evils of the Bat hang ups. I bet Stacey thinks it’s awesome you once played Bruce Wayne. She totally seems like a girl who’d like Batman.

Superheroines of the Night: Diane Kruger, Busy Phillips, and Michelle Williams

First we have to talk about this:

My thoughts go like so:
1. Zomg!
2. But where’s Josh?
3. But but do you think Diane&Josh and Busy&Michelle have super fashionable dinner parties?
4. BECAUSE I WANT TO GO.
5. Charlie‘s Angels

Now let’s talk clothes.

Supervillainess of the Night: Julianna Margulies

I love Julianna Margulies, I have since the pilot episode of E.R. (Carol Hathaway remains one of my favourite characters in any series ever), and she is a beautiful woman. And a winner (Best Actress, Drama, for The Good Wife)! Congrats Julianna.

But, this? No. Just no. This hits one of my biggest fashion pet peeves: she is dressed like an object! WHY. Here, look at it walking:

Worst Dressed at the Globes: Jennifer Love Hewitt

Okay, she wasn’t alone. I’ve already brought up Heidi Klum’s Bizarro wrap and Julianne Moore gave us this:

1. That colour does you no favors on the red carpet. Especially at that length (and it looks too long to boot).
2. This fabric saves every wrinkle and here they are on parade across her middle.
3. What IS that sleeve?

But maybe it looks better in motion, y’know?
