Katharine McPhee at ‘Killing Them Softly’ Premiere

Posted on November 27, 2012

Y’know, if she was walking down the street during the day wearing this outfit, we’d say it’s almost cute.

 

Katharine McPhee attends the screening of ‘Killing Them Softly’ in New York City.

Except for the craft store fur glued onto it, of course. That part’s horrible.

But this is a red carpet for a movie premiere and this strikes us as a bit too casual for the event. It’s obviously not a big, flashy, gowns-and-diamonds kind of premiere, judging by what the star of the film showed up sporting, but she could’ve done a little better than this; especially since her TV show didn’t do so well last season and the upcoming season has a lot of people dubious about its future. Now’s the time to really sell it, honey.  We like the pants and the shoes, but the top looks too casual and the weird jacket is just killing the look for us. Put on a top with a little shimmer to it and switch out that ugly jacket for … oh, let’s say a fitted leather menswear-style blazer. Add a pop of color with the shoes and a complementary clutch and she’d be good to go; casual, but still night-time picture-ready.

Oh, and scrub off that makeup and start over. Same goes with the limp hair. Play up the eyes, downplay the lips,slap on some earrings and pull the hair back in a ponytail if you don’t want to make the effort.
