TCA Summer Press Tour Red Carpet

Posted on July 30, 2012

Darlings, it was the TCA Summer Press Tour, where actors have to poledance for their TV shows like their lives depended on it! Fun!


Bellamy Young

It’s fine. Great color and shape on her. We wouldn’t recommend a lot of jewelry to punctuate the look, but a sassier pair of shoes would’ve gone a long way.


Christa B. Allen in Jean Paul Gaultier

That bodice looks weird on her; too tight and the bust looks really high. The skirt’s too business-like and mature; both for her and for the rest of the outfit. The shoes are distracting as hell.


Connie Britton in Marchesa

We could have done without the fringe around the hem and we would have recommended the ol’ Pop o’ Color in the clutch, but otherwise, she looks pretty great. The gal can rock a white, that’s for sure.


Daisy Betts

She looks pretty great. Love the shoes, especially. We’re not sure about that top paired with that skirt, though. A little contrast would have been nice.


Dana Delany

 What a weird dress. Tight in the boobs but loose everywhere else, including the sleeves. This might have worked if it weren’t for all that stuff hot-glued to the front of it. Love the shoes.


Darby Stanchfield

Why, Helen Bishop. We barely recognized you.

She looks really cute.


Dreama Walker

Cute. A little contrast in the shoe would’ve been welcome. A shame about the hem.


Emma Dummont

 Cute dress; HORRIBLE choice of footwear.


Hayden Panettiere

 Nicely done. We wouldn’t go so far as to call this “polished,” but it shows a marked improvement in her public dressing.


Jeri Ryan

 7 of 9’s still got it, apparently.

We’re sounding like a broken record here, but those shoes are all wrong. Black sandals, dear.


Krysten Ritter in Farrah Kahn


We HATE competing golds, darling. In fact, we think she’s coming awfully close to looking silly here.


Pamela Anderson

Look, her primary and secondary sexual characteristics are covered and her eyes are pointing in the same direction. That’s a win, as far as we’re concerned.


Rachael Taylor in Cushnie et Ochs

 Very sharp. Almost literally.


Sara Rue

 Girl, unless you’re carrying around TPS reports in a file folder, there’s no reason to be sporting such a focus-pulling bag on the RC. Cute look otherwise, though.


Vanessa Williams

 She looks comfortable and chic for the most part, but those shoes are too heavy for the look.

      The Pam Anderson caption goes in the T Lo Pantheon of Quotes.

      • Kiltdntiltd

         Truly. And personally, I love the juxtaposition of Disney’s logo next to her. A less Disney personifying human female there could not possibly be. (Though you should feel free to prove me wrong).

        •ía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

          I’ll give it a try with Ice T’s cup of COCO.

          • Kiltdntiltd

             Definitely way up there in the ranking!

          • Sobaika

            I have no idea why, but I’m fascinated by Coco. I just love the idea of her at an SVU wrap party mingling with Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni.

            • Scoobydrew

              I was up late one night and watched Ice and Coco’s reality show and they were just so … CUTE.  They had quote a bit of footage of behind the scenes SVU.  i couldn’t believe how ADORABLE they were together.  

            • mjude

              i didnt give coco a chance in the past but after watching their show, love them

            • Scoobydrew

              Right? The are so sweet together. 

            • RebeccaKW

               LOVE that show, and how they are together. 

            • Call me Bee

              I’ve only seen her one time–on Fashion Police.  I didn’t want to like her, but she seems so nice…and…likeable!  Good for her! 

            • SassieCassy

              omg can you imagine the conversations between her and belzer

            • snarkykitten

               what I would do to be a fly on that wall!

        • Anathema_Device

          My daughter used to watch a fair amount of Disney TV series. I think some serious whoring out happens over there…in a weirdly wholesome package.

          • Kiltdntiltd

             Oh no doubt!  However Ms Anderson, with her enhanced secondaries and other plasticine delights is hardly the look they are trying to project.

            • LesYeuxHiboux

               What a turn of phrase! “Enhanced Secondaries and Other Plasticine Delights”. I may have to make a print and use that as the title.

            • Kiltdntiltd

               I’d be honored.

            • Tadiana

              It would also make a great name for an alt rock band.

        • Gayer Than Thou

          I thought the same thing!

          • Kiltdntiltd

             Are we sharing consciousness again? Damn.

      • TheOriginalLulu

        So awesome. The woman looks like something the cat dragged in, but we’re all just relieved that nobody has to cover their childrens’ eyes when she walks in the room.

        • Anathema_Device

           I always cover my eyes when it comes to a Pam Anderson pic, then I peek through my fingers. Like watching a horror movie through the holes in an afghan on the couch.

          • Nancy Abrams

            The only disappointing competitors on Dancing with the Stars All Stars — Pam Anderson and Bristol Palin.

    • Sobaika

      The competing golds do make the eye twitch, but I COVET her dress. I’m surprised it’s working as well as it is with her coloring.

      • out for a walk

        I actually like the two golds in the dress, but the shoes and clutch should definitely be swapped out.

        • Sobaika

          Yeah, I was referring to the shoes that are clashing. The dress itself if killer.

    • MaryMitch

      Sarah Rue is looking amazing!

    • elemspbee

      charlotte looks thick all around. terrible materials. i like the shoes, but the whole outfit looks awful.
      7 o’ 9s–hot!

    • kimmeister

      Darby’s sandals must be Jimmy Choos, right?  (Based on the 37 rows of straps.)

      Hayden’s sandals are awful.  The dress is cute, but the fullness starts too low on the bottom half.

      Sara looks cute, but the design of the jacket is creating a giant navy blue arrow pointing to her hooha.

    • MilaXX

      Dana Delany looks like she’s wearing a too small bra on the very last hook. My boobs ache in sympathy.
      Hayden looks like she’s hired some new gays since she got a new show.
      Pam gets credit for not dressing like a porn star, but needs to lay off the eye liner.

    • Spicytomato1

      Quite a few cute looks on people I am largely unfamiliar with (Helen Bishop, however, yay!). Refreshingly pleasant red carpet, made even more so with your entertaining commentary.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      If I were Kristen Ritter, I would’ve put my stylist on notice for that outfit. Especially since last week Zooey Deschanel also appeared in a golden dress on a network event.

    • Tadiana

      I think there’s a country song with the lyrics of “Rode hard and put down wet.”  Pamela Anderson could be the poster child for that song.

    • n a

      LMAO!!  Is this too many characters for a tweet (I can’t count that high) “Look, her primary and secondary sexual characteristics are covered and her eyes are pointing in the same direction. That’s a win, as far as we’re concerned.”  HILARIOUS! thank you!

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      “her eyes are pointing in the same direction.”

      I’m wondering if some of these ladies were styling themselves for this event – doubtful, but I’m surprised that stylists would send their clients to these events with the details and the styling just… lacking. So many of these ensembles are alllmost there but not quite.

    • butterflysunita

      A lot of mediocre outfits.  None are great, but none are really ugly enough to be interesting.  

    • Ceur

      I’m waiting for Bellamy Young’s ankle to twist. 

    • sagecreek

      You all know how I despise Marchesa, but Connie Britton ruled the group — she looked great.

      • PinkLemon

         best marchesa in a LONG time

    • Catiline

      A wild 7 of 9 appears!  That and the accompanying acknowledgment just made my day.

    • MoHub

      Do any of these women own a comb?

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      A haiku for Dana’s dress:

      Smashed breasts in plunge
      Teen age pageant girls’ sequins
      The silk weeps in pain.

      • Kiltdntiltd

         LOVING this!!!!!!

        • Vlasta Bubinka

          Then you’ll like this one for Emma’s shoes:

          Flirty chiffon dress
          Starlet longs for edgy look
          Black rain boots comply

          • Kiltdntiltd

             Its oddly haunting. really.  Quite lovely. 

            • Vlasta Bubinka

              Perhaps one for Connie, to close out the day’s poetry slam:

              Silly tittie fringe
              Awash in post spin class hair
              Twirl boo boo be do

            • Kiltdntiltd

               You really do have a flair for this, Vlasta B.

            • Vlasta Bubinka

              blushgigglehairflip… one more then… for Bellamy:

              Boredom! Boredom sets
              Blue dress, black shoes, and flat hair
              So much ennui now

            • Kiltdntiltd

               I’m seeing a slim, exquisite volume of haiku all derived from fashion.

            • Vlasta Bubinka

              I’m sending the love your way… perhaps there is a kilt haiku in me somewhere…

            • Kiltdntiltd

               Sweet!  How nice of you!
              Digital hugs right back.

      • butterflysunita

        Love!  Dana’s dress does inspire poetry, doesn’t it?

        Breasts plead for mercy
        Green chandelier glued on chest
        Cute shoes cannot save.  

        • Vlasta Bubinka

          it does… odd given that is an offense to the eyes and soul.

          • Vlasta Bubinka

            and I like your haiku a lot butterflysunita.

      • marlie

         I’m starting to think that a haiku from Vlasta might be required for each TLo post. Well, maybe just the red carpet ones. Good job!

    • Gayer Than Thou

      I’m 100% Team Vanessa Williams, but her outfit is verging into smock territory.

    • MajorBedhead

      Pamela Anderson’s knees give me the creeps. For so many reasons. 

      • sagecreek

        too easy :)

    • EEKstl

      I don’t know who Rachel Taylor is but she looks fabulous, best of the bunch.

    • Eva_baby

      Too bad there was no close-up of Pam Anderson’s shoes.  They a Keith Harrington print.  Very cute and I need them now!

    • Heather

      We do have to grade on a curve, don’t we? Because I agree that while we should be grateful that Pam A’s bits are covered, she’s wearing a summer nightie and her hair looks like she’s been working the corner all night. It’s still bad. Poor girl.

    • Call me Bee

      I’m always up for an RC at a made-up event!  Made so much better by your thoughtful insights, gentlemen.  Rachel Taylor and “Helen Bishop” FTW! 

    • PinkLemon

      talk about proportion issues??? all of em!

    • Bergereink

      Dana D.’s dress looks like it was made by Vincent Libretti.

    • SewingSiren

      Crist. Pamela Anderson looks like a Barbie out of the trash can.

    • SewingSiren

      Of the humans . I like the white fringe , the black one shoulder, and the clashing golds (sorry , but I do).
      And um hum, Miss Williams, when a man tells you that your outfit looks “comfortable” it usually isn’t a complement. 

    • Violina23

      Hayden Panettiere looks mature and polished, I must say. I agree, nicely done!

      • marlie

         And she looks her age — 20-something rather than 40-something.

    • marlie

      Why is it that the shoes are the culprit in every single “almost there” look? Is there some sort of footwear conspiracy going on in Hollywood?

    • Sassyscot

      Sara Rue – more like sonogram pics.

    • RzYoung

      Please tell me Dreama Walker is not a real name?!

    • DebbieLovesShoes

      I’m sorry — it’s, like, a week later, and I’m still busting out laughing at:  “PAMELA ANDERSON: Look, her primary and secondary sexual characteristics are covered and her eyes are pointing in the same direction. That’s a win, as far as we’re concerned.”
