In AND Out at the Boardwalk Empire Premiere

Posted on September 15, 2011

Rather than do a typical “In or Out” post, let’s do a compare-and-contrast on the subject matter of how to dress for the season premiere of your highly praised cable television series, shall we?


Kelly Macdonald attends the “Boardwalk Empire” Season 2 premiere in New York City.

The word that springs to mind – and it’s a word we should use more often – is “lovely.” She just looks… lovely, doesn’t she? Polished and pretty and put together. No yoga or “running errands” hair; no ill-advised beartrap shoes or (thankfully) Silly Putty pumps; no ostentatious jewelry or garish makeup;no tan-in-a-can; a dress that’s neither too tight or too big on her. Just a great look, top to bottom. Pretty much perfect.

Then there’s the other way to show up:

Paz de la Huerta attends the “Boardwalk Empire” Season 2 premiere in New York City.

Paz, honey. We just don’t get it. The dress is fine. We’re more than over lingerie-inspired gowns, but it certainly suits you. It’s the detailing where it all goes wrong. We’re a bit confused by the ombre effect on your skin. Your forehead is about ten shades darker than your forearms. The front of your hair looks fine, but the back looks like you slept on it. And then there’s the makeup. This is the part we don’t get.  As gays, we can always get behind a gal who wants to rock the slutty drag queen look, so long as it suits her – and honey, it suits you. But that’s not drag queen makeup. That’s meth addict makeup. We’re more convinced than ever that you just dump a bunch of products on a pillow and slam your face into it. Certainly there’s some makeup queen who can do you up in the uber-glam manner you deserve, which means:

a) No visible lip liner, EVER.

b) Putting eyeliner at more than just the corners of your eyes, so you don’t look cross-eyed.

c) Contouring your face so it looks recognizably human.

d) Adding a little color to your face. Other than just brown, that is.

Look into it, sweetie. We’re fully supportive of the persona you’ve cultivated; you know, “dazed and slutty.” But we think you can polish it up just a little bit without losing any of the endearing qualities that make you so very you. The gays are ready to embrace you and make you an icon darling, but not if you’re gonna wear shitty makeup all the time.

      I first fell in love with Kelly McDonald in Gosford Park.  Her appearance here is absolutely without flaw.  Go Gurl!
      Now, Paz, darling,…..(sighing heavily). I must admit I would volunteer to be your style fairy, but I’m afraid there’s just a tad bit too much cray cray going on there for sensitive little me to deal with. So I can recommend a few Stout Hearted Fags to do you up right!

        Paz: the less said about her bare-ass naked, screech emoting, the better. Can’t see the  Paz’ shoes ’cause the gown is too long: but I’m guessing they’re Silly Putty, to match her Silly Putty lips.

      This gay is NOT ready to make Ms. de la Huerta an icon.  The “icons”, a word I don’t especially care for, from the past have all had an inate sense of style that they were able to pull off with confidence.  Thsi girl is just a hot mess who displays strong hints of some substance abuse or physocolgical damage.  I’ve not seen “Boardwalk Empire” so I can’t judge her acting abilities but her public appearance abilities leave MUCH to be desired.
      Kelly MacDonald does look lovely indeed. It is a shame she had to share a post with the other one.  Do we know who designed her dress?  I like it very much.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        In total agreement here. That is not an icon in the making unless we’re talking about starting a new category.   In the modern slang dictionary there is a picture of Paz next to the phrase “hot mess”
        BTW, Thanks for the Email T.

        Right on, Tom. Paz is nothing but a big old mess.She’s not even an Icon in Training. You have to be around a hell of a lot longer than a hot, trashy minute for anyone to even think about it.

        That lip liner is killing, and not in a good way.

        It’s funny that you said that, because I was just thinking the other day that while gay men usually have such impeccable taste and fashion sense (does anybody else cringe at the stereotyping here, even if it is complimentary?), most of the “gay icons” I think of have a terrible fashion sense.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          Oh I cringe even in the light of its obvious truth so much of the time.  Geez I get tired of the diva queens around me.  lol

          HA.While it’s nice that you can be complimentary towards gays, from my experience gay men very often have highly questionable fashion sense and very tacky taste. This is based on life in Amsterdam and Dublin, though.

      Kelly- Now THOSE are pockets that are meant to be used. Adorable!

      Paz- Ombre’ effect. Teehee. And she just looks drunk. Even proper makeup and styling won’t fix that.

    • Anonymous

      Wow. That makeup and hair totally kill Paz’s look. That face makeup is so awful as to be distracting. I think the eye makeup can be tricky b/c she has very small eyes, but surely a real profession knows how to handle that? And the lipliner…I can’t even…no words. Just no words.

      MacDonald looks adorable. Looks like she has a pretty brooch up on the right, but he hair is covering it. Wish she wasn’t playing “kiss the bunny” with those pockets. It looks a little silly. But overall, total In! I’m totally in love with that dress.

      • Anonymous

        My eyes are similar to Paz’s although I wouldn’t call them “very small” – or at least I hope not! They are relatively small and relatively hooded, like Paz’s eyes. (Unfortunately, the rest of my face doesn’t look like hers!)
        It is not that all hard to learn how to make them up – a Mary Kay woman on her first sales appointment taught me how to do it and it works well. Plus it’s a good thing to learn, because hooded eyes tend to get more hooded as you get older.

          I have hooded, narrow-ish eyes as well. Never had any trouble. It did make me terrible at making up other girls in those middle-school OMG We Found Out What Makeup Is parties, though. Everything I knew looked good on my eyes made them look crazeballs.

      Kelly does look lovely. She and Paz are like night and day.  Not only does Paz look like she showed up drunk, she looks about 20 years older than Kelly. Paz needs lots of help, that’s for sure.  And I hope for her sake, she gets it.

      Paz’s makeup, sadly enough, reminds me of many of the hispanic girls I went to high school and junior high with.  Mainly the ones who got involved with gangbanger boyfriends, got pregnant or addicted to drugs (or both) and dropped out.  It is not a good look on anyone and never has been.  : (

      • Anonymous

        You do realize she was raised in Soho, her dad is a Spanish duke and her mom worked with the UN?  To compare her to hispanic teens who were trapped by influences they couldn’t escape is frankly an insult to them.  Paz is pure affectation.

        • Anonymous

          Thing is, if it weren’t for this blog, I would have no idea who she is.  The first time I saw her being ripped apart for a red carpet look on here, I thought she was someone who somehow managed to wander in from the street and sneak through security.  I still have very little idea who she is, other than she can’t seem to manage to not look horrible and about twice her age, I am guessing.  So, no, I had no idea she was raised in Soho… if I lived in Soho, I might be offended to have her representing my home.  As it is, I am finding her more sad and offensive the more I do learn about her.

            Same boat: if it weren’t for TLo and the Fug Girls, I’d never have heard of her (don’t have HBO, haven’t gotten around to watching “Boardwalk Empire” yet). To me she just seems like a taller, oilier Bai Ling, although without Bai Ling’s apparent zest for life.

      I just can’t with Paz de la Huerta.   I don’t know if she styles herself like this deliberately or what but it’s ridiculous and she doesn’t deserve even negative attention for it (not a knock at TLo for critiquing her).   I just kind of wish she would go away 

      And I don’t know why I’m so fired up about this either! 

      • Anonymous

        I get  annoyed about this because it seems to me that she gets opportunities and attention that a more deserving actress doesn’t have a chance to get because she is thin and young (and the potential to be visually) attractive. 

        I have not seen her “work”  but she’d have to be the best performer in the history of acting to deserve all of these roles/opportunities over more talented – but older, heavier, less attractive – actresses. 

        *I think of other strung out train-wrecks who have wasted so many chances given to them, while truly talented people cannot get a break.   THAT is why I get p.o.’d.

      Is she smuggling something under her right boob? What is happening there?

      I don’t know if it’s makeup or oversized tanning goggles, but Paz appears to have a reverse black eye. She’s scary. I feel like if I say her name three times in a darkened bathroom she will show up and proceed to slap me silly.

      Kelly Macdonald seems to be wearing a sundress made of wool.  In what climate is this the appropriate fabric for a sundress?  And what’s the deal with those pockets?  She looks pretty, but the dress needs some modifications.  Now Paz, on the other hand, just looks nasty.  There is no modification in the world that would help her.

      Paz is just sad.

    • bookish

      My first thought with that first outfit was “weird,” not “lovely.” What’s with those giant pockets? They look like too big pot holders stuck to the front of her dress. I guess I just don’t get it? Anyway, remove the pockets and I would completely agree with the “lovely” assessment. I love the brooch.

      Kelly McDonald is lovely, but the dress is a tad long, don’t you think?  And a little office-y for a premier?  It also looks a little like something you could make in home ec.

      See how I hesitate to criticize her?  I truly like her, but I really don’t care for that dress-apron at all, but I don’t want to say it out loud.

      Paz is just a disaster, as usual.

      I hate Kelly’s dress, which is no surprise to anyone familiar with my vendetta against plaid. Besides the plaid, which isn’t too bad because it’s subtle, those pockets are just strange. I can’t, however, disagree with any of TLo’s other points. She does look lovely. I love the semi-Veronica Lake hair, and her make-up is flawless. Her shoes are a little dowdy, but they’re not a disaster. If pressed, I would have to give her a very big IN.

      I’m afraid Paz is taking up where the late (and sadly missed) Amy Winehouse left off. I hope it’s all just a cosmetic thing, and that she’s not going down the same self-destructive road Amy went down.

      If it’s compare and contrast, sure Kelly wins in a landslide over Paz. A corpse has more life than the princess of “dazed and slutty” in these shots. BUT, Kelly is also wearing a sundress made out of the den couch. It looks bulky and itchy. I am not too pleased.

      Kelly looks like a sweet and sexy housewife who just slipped into her oven mitts on the way to the kitchen to serve up a yummy casserole for hubby. Paz, on the other hand, is wearing Michelle Duggar hair — straight bangs and disorganized curls. Michelle has little time to tend her coif, what with the 19 kids and all. I don’t know that Paz has an excuse

       Paz is wearing eyeliner??  I mean, as much makeup as that chick puts on, eyeliner is the one I always thought was SADLY lacking, as her eyes are a lot like mine, narrow and rather shapeless.  Just a little bit on the bottom would do wonders for her.

      How old is she just out of curiosity?  I’m guessing she’s a lot younger than she looks….I say she looks to be in her mid-forties.

      I don’t personally like the dress that Kelly MacDonald is wearing, but yes, she does look lovely. She looks neat and clean, her hair and make-up are flattering and appropriate, the dress fits her well and there are no crimes being committed against her boobs or her vagina. 

      This is a very good compare/contrast.

      Paz concerns me in the same way that Amy Winehouse and Anna Nicole Smith concerned me. :( 
      I sincerely hope that someone reaches out and helps this girl and that she’s willing to accept the help.

      if she doesnt go to rehab, in two years she’s gonna look like she’s two hundred & twenty. poor amy winehouse actually had some talent, what this person has i do not know {other than a contract w/ vivienne westwood’s son}. it’s heartrendingly irritating that this is what wandering around the edges has become. i’m not sure makeup would fix it. maybe reading, lots & lots of it, & the brains to understand what one has read, but the final part of that equation is something w/ which one must needs be born.

      Paz is either the next Madonna in terms of publicity (because lord knows, we can’t stop talking about her when she shows up in public like… that) or performance art.  I have this fantasy that behind closed doors she’s all Audrey Hepburn classic chic perfection, rolling in piles of money and laughing at us.

      Because holy shitcakes I totally have no other explanation that doesn’t involve Winehouse levels of tragic and I hope to god Boardwalk Empire isn’t enabling that.

      Kelly–great. And the contrast between them, alas, fits their characters in the show. Paz reminds me of a high-school play where I, who never wore makeup, decided to let the make-up crew do my face, while another girl in the same position went it alone with the orange pancake. She came out looking like Paz (and I came out looking like Kelly). But maybe that’s Paz’s skin. She might be ombre because she tans unevenly….

      I don’t know Paz but I agree with other posters–I was a little scared for her when I saw these photos–her eyes look so dead and her face so blank.  Hope she gets help, if she needs it.  She can be just as edgy without going over that particular edge of no return.

      Paz looks awful.  I have to say, though, that she is very, very good on Boardwalk Empire.  Dressing and makeup are obviously not her thing, but give her her art.

      Kelly M. does look very pretty. Soft and sophisticated.

      Paz, oh Paz. …”dazed and slutty” indeed. It’s such a joy to see the unique train wreck that is Paz.

      I want Kelly M’s dress

      Is it me, or does Kelly Macdonald have Sherlock Holmes’s deerstalker on both her hips? Also, I’m not sure about the length.

      She does, however, look personally lovely. And about a million times better than Paz, who looks like a hot mess, as per usual.

      Mary Macdonald is Scottish, so I guess a tweed cocktail dress is to be expected.  She looks very effortless and sweet.  Because her face is so big, I would like to see more volume in her hair — not zshoozsh, just more volume.

      Two thumbs wa-a-ay UP for Kelly McDonald, who looks so fresh and sleek. Great dress, perfect styling and the hair and makeup? Flawless. A-a-a-and, then there’s Paz. She puts the “voom” in the va-va-voom, all right, but there’s always something just . . . off. I could never figure it out until T Lo pointed out that she has transcended the slutty and moved into meth-face territory. That comment made me snort a bit of my wine out of one nostril, I was laughing so hard!

      Love McDonald… The plaid is a gracious nod to her Scot homeland.  Having loved her ever since Trainspotting, it’s also refreshing to see her embrace maturity.  The soft hair and makeup, not to mention the muted tones of the ensemble, let her own natural radiance shine.  Most of all, she looks comfortable.  

      Paz looks like a nightmare that crawled out of a Lower East Side sewer – not inconceivable, come to think of it!

      It’s Mister Paz dela Huerta and he just woke up wearing his wife’s PJ’s

      I don’t know, Paz looks like every other used and put up wet barfly in Florida.

      Paz is starting to scare me.  She just doesn’t look like she’s there, behind her eyes.  Maybe it’s time to stop choosing her photos for critiques, as I don’t think she’s in her right mind.

      Healthy vs. Un-Healthy.
      My favorite Kelly is ‘State of Play’ British version.
      She really does look lovely – fabulous dress – fabulous everything.
      Paz needs an intervention or …..well, I think we all know where she is headed.

      I can’t say I’m loving either look but Kelly McDonald certainly looks classy (and dull) while Paz just looks full-on deranged. But, her look is the one of the two that I’ll remember.

      She looks like she sits on a bar stool in at 4 in the afternoon smoking capris and drinking Riunite on ice. She has no lower eyelashes AT ALL and the body that everyone has such a boner over looks to be in desperate need of some real toning.
