Superheroine of the Night: Lea Michele versus Heather Morris

I understand that Lea Michele wants the world to know that she is not Rachel Berry.

But girl, NO. That is not how a high thigh slit WORKS. The dress will do it for you. You do not want fashion bloggers of the world to catch you positioning your dress for maximum leg. This absolutely screams Trying Too Hard. It hurts me to look at, Lea. I am uncomfortable for you! Which, honestly, makes you seem more like Rachel.

Let’s try to look at the dress without your handling: Read the rest of this entry »

And that I absolutely love.

Best Dressed: Lea Michele (Tony Awards V)

I have to admit I didn’t want to choose her. She’s been over-exposed this year and I don’t even really like Rachel. Plus, why was Glee performing at the Tony’s? Aren’t they on TV?

But. Lea looks amazing.

Interactive Thursday: the Phoenix Corps

So I’ve noticed a little bit of a trend lately. Fashion birds. I don’t mean this:

Malaika Arora dressed AS a bird (for a good cause). But this:
