Obviously Holly Hunter's having a blast at this weekend's TCA Tour Party! And why not? The Television Critics Association "provides credentialed television writers and trade reporters with a preview of upcoming high-quality, original cable programming and an opportunity to speak with talent and network executives." Sounds like a blast to me! Anyway, she, Kyra Sedgwick, Melissa Sagemiller and some teen in a vest all congregated at the Beverly Hilton to less-than-spectacular sartorial effect. Journey with me, if you will, after the jump.
Unfortunate expression notwithstanding, closer Kyra Sedgwick is looking good.
Jennifer Lawrence is on The Bill Engvall Show. "The Bill Engvall show is set in a Denver suburb and follows the life of ‘Bill Pearson,'a family counselor whose own family could use a little dose of counseling."
I don't know, gang. This is kinda harshing my mellow, but it somehow suits Holly Hunter. The Meh:
Conceptually, there are things about Melissa Sagemiller's dress that I like. But pink and black is dicey: as Genevieve Antoine-Darriaux, author of the immortal Elegance, says, pink is one of those colors that "cheapens" black. And despite all its good, retro-inspired intentions, this number puts me forcibly in mind of something off of Daddyos.com, this website that makes rockabilly apparel.
Again, don't get me wrong: I don't exactly hate actress Sarah Clarke's dress. But I do think it looks kinda surf-shop-like. The print puts me forcibly in mind of, yes, Roxy by Quicksilver.
Gina Bellman's mini is another I just wasn't feeling - although I'm willing to concede that it could work better in person. I do think the camera brings out the dress's horizontal tendencies in an unfortunate way.
17-year-old Graham Patrick Martin is also a Bill Engvall Show kid. He just looks so disconcertingly well-groomed and Hollywood and young-actor-ish!
Gloria Reuben's halter is almost lovely - I just wish the bodice were slightly more assertive. The Bad:
Beth Reisgraf's unfortunate separates? Dress? are the evening's low point.
