So, the Sapphic exercise in squirm that is Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona has moved east, and last night premiered in the Apple at Cinema 123, sponsored, oddly, by A Diamond is Forever & The Sherry Council (I guess because sherry's Spanish?). And kids, it's bad. I feel almost...betrayed. Javier Bardem, channeling Guys and Dolls; Penelope Cruz, channeling Grizabella the Glamour Cat, and Nicole Miller, channeling Stella's garbage bag design from Project Runway. The Good, the Bad, and the Hefty, after the jump!
Patricia Clarkson's been on such a roll lately!
When I read about the whole aggressive necklaces trend for fall I thought it sounded kind of contrived. But with something simple and elegant like Jennifer Missoni's? Sign me up.
Ditto the whole "Egyptian" trend. I mean, really? But the way Georgina "Mrs. Harvey Weinstein" Chapman works the Nefertiti collar with a babydoll? Looks fresh.
Penelope! What is this tattered flapper getup?! Say it ain't so!!!
I daresay Tara Subkoff's trompe l'oeil tux thingamabob is very whimsical.
Javier Bardem as Sky Masterson looks a little community theatre.
So yeah, does anyone remember when Stella made that dress out of garbage bags and everyone was like, "that's obviously just a garbage bag" ? Nicole Miller does!
There are like four things going on with Holly Dunlap's neckline, none of them good.
I guess I can see how in theory a gold lame tunic and black leggings could be awesome...wait, no, I can't, Eva da Cruz.
I just feel like when you're given breasts and made their guardian, it's kind of a sacred trust. Carla Gugino has broken that covenant.
The pocket-happy Daisy Dukes were problematic when Britney started doing them ten years ago - indeed, it was one of the first indications she was going off her rocker. I don't know what Byrdie Bell's excuse is.
