We’re so proud of Miss Tina. Her relationship with the red carpet has been a rocky one and she started off as a gal who didn’t seem to believe she had the right to wear high-end clothing and look as glamorous as possible. She was the quirky, funny nerd girl who found herself standing in the spotlight and wondering how she got there. It was endearing, but after one ugly outfit too many, it started getting frustrating.

But look how polished she is now. We wouldn’t call this a “WERQ!” moment, mainly because, to our eyes, it looks a bit on the mature side of things, but she looks comfortable and put-together in a way she couldn’t manage just a few years ago. We like the dress, but we think she could’ve done something a little more youthful with her hair here. This exact look, from hair to dress to clutch could be replicated on Meryl Streep and look fabulous. But Meryl’s a good 20 years older than Tina. We would have recommended something more fun with the hair and maybe a more prominent pair of earrings to youthen it a little.
Youthen is a word now.
