Maggie Gyllenhaal in Christian Dior
We don’t expect a lot of agreement on this one – and really, we don’t blame anyone; this is a TOUGH dress – but we’re going to continue our stream of goodwill and encouragement for this one:

Like we said, it’s tough; tough to wear and tough to like. We’re not even sure if we like it, really. But we like what it represents for Maggie; a commitment to style that’s refreshing to these two cranky style bitches. She or her stylist knows that her looks call for the unusual in fashion. She responds well to the odd; much better than she does to any sort of half-assed attempts at style. In other words, we’d rather see her go for a full-blown weird dress like this than showing up in some old sundress or schoolteacher’s outfit. In fact, if she continues to dress like this, we will be forced to conclude that she’s learned her style lesson and no longer needs us berating her.
Then we can move on to her makeup, because child? That lipstick?
