Some might say the tights are overkill. From the side she actually looks like she’s carrying an animal rug or a portable resting mat. Love it or hate it though, this is not Elizabeth Banks’s biggest problem.

Did you open the photos and think for a second that she was Sienna Miller?

Because Sienna would have worn this only better, and Sienna’s hair would have been styled like this only better, and her eyes would have been smudged black too only better, and while Elizabeth Banks certainly deserves some props for not going safe and conservative, at the same time if the result is being mistaken for the lesser version of someone else, I’m pretty sure that doesn’t qualify as a win either.

I can barely tell Elizabeth Banks apart from the rest, never mind identifying Elizabeth Banks’s STYLE from the rest. And this is the hell of being an actress, the bitch task of establishing a distinguishable identity. It’s why so many of them resort to so much bullsh-t. We’ll get to Jessica Biel soon.
