We are SO not going to hear much agreement in the comments section on this one, but we don’t care. Work them panties, girl!
Minions are often confused by us. “T Lo,” they say, “You said you didn’t like sheer skirts, so why do you like this?” Well, maybe we’re different (although we don’t think we are) but we think every item of clothing depends on its wearer and the place it’s being worn to determine whether it works or not. Would we like to see someone wear this to the Academy Awards or the Met gala? No, not really. Would we like to see this on Helen Mirren? Definitely not. Elle Fanning? No. In other words, we don’t hate things like nude shoes per se; we hate the ways in which they’re deployed on the red carpet.
Now, granny panties are definitely reserved for the specific gal in the specific time and place, but yes, they can work when it all comes together. We think she looks amazing here. The dress suits her as well or better than it did the model, whose only job in that one moment was to sell that dress. She looks sexy without looking sleazy, and somehow, it just works for something like the Moscow film festival (it’d work at Cannes too); especially since, ironically, Russia apparently doesn’t do red carpets, choosing instead to favor eye-searing capitalist green carpets.
At any rate, we can’t impose across-the-board dictates regarding granny panties, because sometimes – rare times, to be sure – some gal comes along and rocks the hell out of them.
We were going to type “rocks the shit out of them,” but that seemed wrong in a discussion about panties. WERQ it, girl!
