Julianne Moore has stopped us in our tracks, kittens.

You see, as much as we adore her as an actress, the poor dear has had a rather contentious relationship with the red carpet and she’s shown a propensity for wearing bizarre dresses that she really can’t pull off. At first glance, this look prompted an exasperated “Oh, Julianne…” But the more we look at it, the less we find to criticize. Pussy bows are easy to make fun of, partly because of the name and partly because the old lady/old time secretary jokes practically write themselves. And to be fair, we don’t suddenly love the pussy bow. They remain as difficult to pull off as they always do. But we have to pay her some credit here because it’s extremely rare to see a pussy bow in public that hasn’t gone sad and limp. Her gay must have emptied an entire can of Aquanet on that thing to keep it stiff.
The rest of the look is simple and classic; a black suit and some kickass leopard print shoes. Her hair and makeup aren’t bad but they’re perhaps a bit too close to her Sarah Palin costume. Nothing wrong with a 50-year-old woman working a classic suit and respectable politician hair and makeup, but she’s an uncommonly beautiful woman and she can do so much better than this.
We don’t know, you guys. We go back and forth. We don’t necessarily love it, but we don’t really hate it either.
IN! Respect the pussy bow, bitches!
OUT! She looks she just took first prize in a cat show!
Voting is still open on Zooey Deschanel’s “Alexis Pierrot Carrington” getup.
