Michelle Pfeiffer in Barbara Bui

Posted on October 30, 2012

Darlings, we are ALIVE! There is a tree on top of a car outside and our power went out briefly a couple of times, but Hurricane Sandy’s effect on T Lo Manor was to mostly just keep us up all night. We were very, very lucky. How did the rest of the Bitter Kittens in the storm’s path fare?

Also, let’s start off the day with something bright and pretty. We’re feeling it.

Michelle Pfeiffer hosts the 8th annual Elyse Walker Pink Party to benefit Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Program in Santa Monica, California in a Barbara Bui dress paired with a Givenchy clutch, Nancy Newberg bracelets, Rona Pfeiffer rings and Valentino shoes.

The dress: bright. Her: pretty. In other words, we’re not entirely sure about the dress, although we think there’s more in the Pro column than the Con.

We don’t love the line cutting across her hips at that point, but the shape of this dress is fantastic for her and the colors mostly suit her. The problem here, as is so often the case, is that she fudged it on the detailing. Not for lack of trying, though. The lady is stacked with accessories; they’re just all wrong. The necklace, the cuffs, the shoes and possibly even the clutch – all wrong for this dress. Less metallic accents and more bright colors; more elegant shoes; maybe a diamond or two.

Also, an entire re-do on that face. More dramatic eye makeup and a slightly stronger lip. She’s looking pretty ghostly up top.

Geez, we thought we were going to start off the day all celebratory and we wound up being all critical and shit. Blame it on the wind keeping us up all night.
