Hey, kids! It’s Friday! Let’s do a quick rundown of red carpet highlights from Day Two of the Venice Film Festival and say short, bitchy things about each outfit! Okay? Okay!

It gets a little “saloon girl” up around the bustline, but the rest of it is fabulous. We just wish she’d done something better with her hair.

Oh, HONEY. We don’t much like the Martha Mitchell hair, but once you move down past that, it all starts getting very pretty. Then you hit the crotch and it all goes wrong.

Hey. We think we just coined a fashion term. When a dress looks great except for one really bad idea, that’s called “hitting the crotch.” Usage: “Man, that dress was fine until we got to the sheer lace skirt, then it all just hit the crotch.”

We are very thankful that she or her stylist insisted on a top to go with this dress. It’s a really gorgeous dress, but that is so not her color and the rather underplayed makeup doesn’t help. It’s beautiful, but it’s not her dress.

We don’t know… it’s all a bit Star Trek-y, especially with the pompadour hair. Plus, we don’t think that wing effect works as well on a woman with a decent-sized pair of boobs. It really alters the effect and kind of makes the top 3rd of the dress look like it’s inflated.
