We featured Eva yesterday and said that we thought her gown was too heavy for her to pull off. Well, she’s back, and clearly the heavy gown thing was deliberate.
Evan Green attends the European premiere of “Dark Shadows” in London in navy velvet dress, sandals, and crocodile stamp gold plated cuffs by Tom Ford.

It is at times like these when we turn to that great 20th Century philosopher known as Cher, who once famously intoned:
“Dark Lady laughed and danced and lit the candles one by one
Danced to her gypsy music till her brew was done”
Wise words, indeed.
For you see, Eva is clearly working the genre-film red carpet look, which means in this case that she plays a witch in a movie so she’s going to essentially dress like one for the press tour. Had she played a robot in a sci-fi film, you could expect a lot of metallic dresses and lacquered hair.
And while everything here is pretty much perfect for a witch costume, we really don’t like what she’s doing with her hair here. The gown and jewelry are pretty spectacular, but the pseudo-goth Piercing Pagoda employee hair is not red carpet material. Also, matching cuffs are a little Wonder Woman and while our deep abiding love for Wonder Woman cannot be denied, she too, is not necessarily red carpet material. One cuff next time, dear.
Cher, why don’t you help us all come to a decision through the power of your poetry?
IN! Dark Lady laughed and danced and lit the candles one by one
Danced to her gypsy music till her brew was done
Dark Lady played back magic till the clock struck on the twelve
She told me more about me than I knew myself!
OUT! So I sneaked back and caught her with my man,
Laughing and kissing till they saw the gun in my hand
The next thing I knew they were dead on the floor,
Dark Lady would never turn a card up anymore!
There was an enormous response to Elizabeth Banks’ too-busy dress, but clearly y’all couldn’t stop talking about it. Much debate was undertaken, but the final vote came down to IN.
