Synecdoche, New York Premiere: Can't Wait for the Movie, Can Wait for the Ugly Dresses

This weekend in Cannes, stars showed up for the premiere of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman's next effort, Synecdoche, New York, which Kaufman both wrote and directed. If you're a fan of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Adaptation, this movie will probably excite you. (It stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as a theater director attempting to create a life-sized replica of New York inside a warehouse as part of a new theatrical production.) If you're a fan of Michelle Williams, Kerry Washington, and a pretty actress named Clementine Poidatz, well, roll up your sleeves and get ready to dig into this awesome installment of The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly. Your favorite guest blogger tears fashion a new one, after the jump.













The Good

Andrea Harrison looks pretty in this flirty DVF dress.

This is exactly what I wish I looked like on most days: French, subtle, dainty, lovely. Thanks, Clementine Poidatz, for raising the bar.

Not my favorite dress on Emmanuelle Beart, but her Cruella DeVille-like stature wins me over.

Kerry Washington always pulls it together.

Let's only focus on Michelle Williams here, because she is my absolute favorite! She is the most consistently best-dressed and this time is no exception. Some women come into themselves in their late 20s/early 30s, and Williams is that woman.




The Bad

Anouck Marguerit? Blech. We've seen this look about a million times circa the early 90s. Red satin with white diamonds? Why don't you add a white feather boa while you're at it, you little movie star?

I love a dress that accentuates the boobage, but these are what we East Coasters refer to as "LA Boobs," and they don't go over so well. Especially when they're being held together by two footballs.

Lets turn our focus to Catherine Keener, who is a fantastic actress but not so fashionable.

Did you all watch SNL the other weekend? Pheobe Price looks like she belongs in the Cougar Den. I bet she's doing her Kegels as I write this.




The Ugly:

Some mornings I wake up wondering if I'll have anything for "The Ugly" category. Thank you Vanessa Hessler, for your old oatmeal colored dress; you just made my job a little easier.
