Oscar Good Dress, Bad Dress: Maggie & Charlize

A lot of people call Maggie Gyllenhaal ugly because she doesn’t look like Reese Witherspoon. Having met Maggie at the Spirit Awards on Friday, I can tell you her sex appeal is through the roof. It’s the way she holds herself. And the slight condescension when she speaks to you. She’s tall, so she looks down on most people, literally and figuratively, and you know I like bitches, and oh Maggie, she can be a bitch, and so of course I’m properly in love with her. More so than before. Especially after seeing her Oscar dress. This is how you do.

So many women are afraid of prints and colour. And they should be. It’s not for everyone. But when it’s done right...

Duana is the representative among our friends. Duana can pretty much put on any ugly ass print, often vintage, of course, and suddenly, with a pair of earrings, and some crazy shoes, all of a sudden it makes us in our jeans and standard issue black blouses exceedingly pedestrian.

There are few who would have chosen Maggie’s Dries van Noten. And if they had we would have been aghast. But there’s something to knowing what works for you uniquely. And her style confidence is what consistently delivers inspired, interesting choices.

Charlize Theron usually has that going for her as well. But it was a rare misstep. And with Dior no less.

Cupcakes. Cupcake breasts. And the material. It’s so unflattering. It’s wrinkled all over. It’s giving gapes where there shouldn’t be and aren’t. It’s messy. What is happening with the comet tails coming out of those cupcakes that meet at the back? I am offended. Galliano or not, this is a junior design project. At best.
