At the end of it all I asked Duana if she missed Kyra Sedgwick. She did. Then I asked her if Laura Dern filled the Kyra Sedgwick void. It’s the colour. It’s a colour Kyra would have delivered to us, and beautifully. In the absence of Kyra Sedgwick, Laura Dern tried. It was an admirable attempt. Full Story

Sasha and I don’t see each other daily anymore workwise. We did, but it was years ago. However, last fall it so happened that we started to run into each other on the daily again, and the first or second day, she surveyed my outfit and said “Oh right. I forgot you like to mix things up. Full Story

I don’t give a sh-t how you cut it. Taffeta will never be NOT prom to me. And, therefore, to me it should never show up on a red carpet. Unless, of course, it shows up on Carrie Underwood. Like, what else is she going to wear? This woman actively avoids style. Taffeta on Carrie Underwood makes all the sense in the world. Full Story

It’s Anna Gunn’s time. Now that she’s won a very well deserved Emmy, it’s her time to make the call. They would take her call. Elie Saab would certainly take her call. But she can do even better than Elie Saab. She can do Chanel. She can do Louis Vuitton. She can do Lanvin. Full Story

Okay, so we know there’s a hierarchy to these things, right? All the dresses are chosen in sequence of who gets to wear them, with the best going first, and the last ones going to the guest stars or wives or ladies Of A Certain Age. Malin Akerman isn’t super A-list, but she’s not nobody, either. Full Story

I think I’ve been clear here, before, that I really like the Marg. I spell her name wrong with regularity, of course, but I like her. She’s always kind of got some quiet sass about her, rocking the latter part of her career, and she knows exactly what’s up, I feel, at these events. Full Story

I like the exposed girdle under lace situation happening here on Cersei Lannister. It’s not the best, but it’s far from the worst. Too bad she totally disappeared during the show though. Because Game Of Thrones doesn’t exist at the Emmys, it really doesn’t. This is what I meant earlier when I said that a lot of the people who actually looked good were made irrelevant by the show. Full Story

So I guess what I realized is that we don't really give men as much credit, do we? We sort of smile affectionately when their relationships dissemble and wait for them to have new girlfriends. If this was George Clooney or Jake Gyllenhaal or someone, we’d be laughing about who was going to be next. Full Story

I don’t have a sister. I do have a cousin, Cat, who is like a sister. So I thought to myself last night, if Cat and I were invited somewhere to present together, would we do a sisterly matchy-matchy? No. She would pick a dress she liked and I would pick something I liked and if it clashed, so f-cking be it. Full Story

They did a bit last night about how Neil Patrick Harris might have hosting fatigue. I can’t remember the exact name for it but you get the point. I’m not sure they actually got the point though because it was really just meant as a gratuitous promotion for How I Met Your Mother, which, as Duana said, dominated the entire show, at the expense of a lot of fresher shows. Full Story
