Pairs Division: Michele and Colfer

Posted on December 21, 2011

Once more, the dearth of good red carpet appearances has forced us to turn to television to solve all our problems. Believe us, it wouldn’t be the first time.

Glee castmates Lea Michele and Chris Colfer put on their best church clothes to visit Andy’s clubhouse. Let’s assess:

SHE: Just can’t stop herself with the posing, can she? Once again, she’s wearing a dress that’s too short for sitting on TV (as opposed to sitting on your TV, and then all bets are off as to hem length), forcing her to constantly cover her upper thigh with her hand, lest the audience at home get a glimpse of America’s Sweetheart’s cheek crease. Still, it’s quite the jazzy little holiday-appropriate number and the hair and makeup look good. Score: 8/10. Points off for (lack of) length. If your garment provides so little coverage that you have to resort to using your hands to cover your lady areas, then that’s not a very useful garment, is it? Why not just come out naked and use the other hand to cover your nipples the whole time?

HE: Is NOT wearing skinny jeans, a vest, and a pair of pointy-toed boots and for that we are eternally grateful. This is still too far inside the tiny little style box he’s defined for himself, though. After all, a shiny tailored suit and a skinny tie is basically his other uniform. But he looks really good. Chic, grown up, a little holiday and a lot fabugay. Score: 9/10. Had he worn something equally as chic without resorting to his standard go-to, he would have scored a perfect 10. Aren’t you sorry now, Chris?

Combined Score: 8.5/10. Well done, kids. You both look swell. Now let’s put on a show in the barn.
