Best Dressed (Lainey Edition): Lucy Liu

Come on. You knew it. Duana rolled her eyes as soon as she saw the braid. And the print. For all the slinky mermaids and the red taffetas and the strapless sparkles and the goddamn lace, Lucy Liu’s Carolina Herrera was an exception. No one else was working this shape with this much structure. And the floral pattern gave it a sense of... Marie Antoinette, right? An Asian Marie Antoinette. She stepped right out of Sofia Coppola’s movie. With pockets!
And then the hair...
The only fishtail that was good all night...
We see Lucy in a lot metallic Versace. She also favours a great black dress. So her choice here deserves the top spot also because she’s making a bold departure from the usual... and still in a way that isn’t forced. She wearing it like she was meant to. Remember this. It might not just be the best of the Globes, it might even be the best you’ll see all year.
Check it -- Duana’s best was a TV star, and my best was a TV star. This time, TV > Film!
