Last night in Los Angeles at the premiere of the film version of the award-winning play August Osage County, formidable actors showed up on the red carpet. Some of the fashion was… a little weird.

By the by: Not only did the play win Tony Awards and Drama Desk Awards, the playwright, Tracy Letts, received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for this work. Letts is a writer and an actor — you may have seen him as Andrew Lockhart on Homeland. Anyway! On to the clothes!

Misty Upham (whom you may have seen in Frozen River) also wore white, a gorgeous ivory gown with some kind of fashion cape. Love.

Here's where things get a little weird. Juliette Lewis in billowing purple charmeuse. The color is rich and fabulous, the asymmetrical bustline makes it interesting, and the asymmetrical hemline — hitched up to reveal a black tulle underskirt — is fun. And yet! All together it's slightly wonky and a little messy… The seams seem janked up.

More weirdness: Julia Roberts in a penguin suit. I love when ladies do menswear. Lupita Nyong'o in a tux dress, Sharon Stone in a suit, Miley in a white notched-lapel shrunken tux. But this is weird. Maybe it's the dress part? Or the jacket part? Or the way it's not fitted enough or tailored? I don't know, man. I just don't know.

Abigail. It's not you. It's the dress. It either needs to be a size up (WHICH IS FINE! WHO CARES?! NO ONE KNOWS WHAT SIZE IT IS!) or .. or maybe it's just not going to work. That is one unfortunate shade of brown.
