Anyone seen the promos for HBO’s VEEP? We tend to run screaming from any fictionalized versions of the American political world because they’re either naive fantasies or far too cynical diatribes. Everyone hated us when West Wing was on the air because we refused to watch it for those very reasons. People paid more attention to what was going on in the fictional West Wing than in the real one.
And now that we’ve dropped that spicy little conversation-starter, let’s rip some dresses!
Anna Chlumsky attends the “VEEP” screening in DC in a Christian Siriano dress.
Cute, slightly mod-retro dress in a fantastic color. Love how simple it is, which is really saying something since “simple” isn’t a word one associates with Christian Siriano’s designs. But the color choices are so odd here: almost-nude lip and dark red shoes. We would have told her to go for a strong lip and some form of neutral shoe (although NOT beige; we’re thinking more of grey or black). We also would’ve suggested a belt. Still; cute look.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus attends the “VEEP” in DC.
When the fuck is she going to start aging? She got her start on Saturday Night Live THIRTY YEARS AGO. How is that even possible?
We are suitably impressed with her skills at WERQing it, but we don’t really love this dress. For one, it’s awfully tight; for another, that neckline’s weird and distracting. But the overall picture’s pretty amazing, despite the dress. She’s a billionaire and she doesn’t age. We should hate her for that, but actually, we kind of love her. She’s hilarious – and unlike the rest of the Seinfeld crew, has managed to carve out a nice career for herself.
