She’s got a flair for the dramatic. We love that. Most actresses her age don’t have that understanding, but most actresses her age didn’t grow up in show business, which tends to make you an innately dramatic person for life.

Do we like this? A little. It’s head-turning and it flatters the hell out of her. but black gowns with sheer material over the arms and neck tend to read a bit mature, since these are the tricks deployed by the 60+ ladies when dressing up. And then there’s the hair. We feel the internet, after years of making fivehead jokes at her expense, may have scarred her just a little. Yes, she’s got a face made for bangs, but this is perhaps a bit blunt and limp-looking for our tastes. Then there’s the fact that she’s orange. But as first impressions go, this look has got it going on. As tiny as she is, we imagine she turned some heads when she walked into that room.
