      Michelle looks like Cersei Lannister getting ready for bed.

    • Sobaika

      Michelle Rodriguez as Morgan le Fey.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      Michelle is just looking for the Ren Faire buffet.

      • Constant Reader

        My thought exactly!

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      If there was any remaining question that getting a star on the walk of fame is a purchase item, not one given because it is deserved, this is the proof you require. Also, why are the two ladies in attendance dressed for totally different events? One appears to be on her way to shop at Ross Dress for Less, and the other just woke from a nap.

      • Heather

        Which is which? :-)

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          I suspect it really doesn’t matter much.
          *sigh*

      • Lanus

        Too Long, Too Short….where is the Baby Bear Juuuuust Riiiiiight for skirt length in this crowd?

      • OrigamiRose

        No doubt. Sad to think that someone of the caliber of Peter Falk, too modest to accept such an accolade during his life, was the last honoree before Vin Diesel.

        • demidaemon

          That just makes me love Peter Falk more. Long live Columbo!

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        I KNOW! It’s driving me crazy! Michelle’s on her way back from Ren Faire (as many brilliant BKs have said), and Jordana looks like she just got back from temping at the office. The only person in this bunch who’s dressed appropriately is Vin Diesel!

      • librarygrrl64

        I thought Rodriguez looked like a cross between a depressed employee at the Ren Faire and a cast member from Game of Thrones.

    • Heather

      Michelle Rodriguez: the Calvin Klein tshirt bra is your friend! Unlike your nipples, it’s invisible under clothing!

      Also, is it bad that I think Vin Diesel is hot, even though he appears to be wearing platform shoes?

      • conniemd

        I’ve always thought Vin Diesel is hot in a testosterone driven, give me one night of wild, crazy sex and booze kinda way.

        • Heather

          Exactly! In FMK he’d be the F. And who knows, he might actually be a decent guy.

          • River

            He’s a huge nerd and very sweet, from all accounts. Which is kind of a nice combo with the big muscles etc. And he can act, see “Find Me Guilty.”

      • Sarah

        The nips don’t bother me because I was too busy noticing the heinous pit-stains. JESUS. I believe that’s a sweater-dress, in LA in August.

        • Heather

          If I had to choose which one was worse, it would be a fashion Sophie’s Choice.

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Isn’t that just a nightmare fashion situation? Sure, my nipples are showing for all the world to see, but thank GOD the gigantic pit stains are totally distracting from them!

          • Sarah

            Actually, I didn’t notice the nips or the pits first. It was the Medievalness of it all that struck me first. “Don’t note my fashion faux pas, I am a walking anachronism of misdirection!”

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Vin looks like a low level mob boss.
      Michelle is on her way to cover her jewelry selling shift at the Renaissance fair.
      Jordana is going shopping after a light lunch.

    • kimmeister

      Michelle – that might be the most interesting dress she’s ever worn (which isn’t saying much).
      Vin – your shirt is too small if the buttons are gaping like that.
      Jordana – those are some leg stumpifying shoes.

    • StellaZafella

      Telly Savalas realness…where’s the Tootsie Pop?

      • Imasewsure

        Who loves ya baby?? :)

    • Jacquelyn

      I can’t even focus on the fashion because I’m too busy wondering why Vin Diesel got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

      • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

        He finally saved up enough of his Fast & Furious dollars?

      • MilaXX

        Because Fast & Furios made lots and lots if $$$$$

      • sagecreek

        No kidding, Jacquelyn.

        According to the LA Times, here are the people who do NOT have a star:

        George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Robert Redford, George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas, Sean Connery, David Lean, Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet, Leonard Dicaprio, Diane Keaton, Denzel Washington and Woody Allen.

        Seriously? Vin Diesel?

        • Heather

          If anyone has ever been down to this part of LA, one would understand that they’re catering to a lowest common denominator.

          That said, Helen Mirren has a star!

          • Constant Reader

            I think I had combined Beverly Hills and Hollywood in my mind. You can imagine my look of consternation when I was actually walking down the street in Hollywood…

            • Heather

              Yes they are VASTLY different! :-)

      • aahlife

        This is how it works to obtain a star –

        The “star” applies. They fill out an application and promise they will attend the unveiling ceremony. With the application there is a $30,000 fee. In June of each year the selection committee meets, and go over the applicants qualifications, including their bio, awards, philanthropic work, etc. The application is good for two years, they can keep reapplying if rejected.

        This is why you do not see obvious A listers having stars, some do not care and do not apply.

        • rajf

          So now I feel sad about the people who have them, and shouldn’t have stooped to that level (like Queen Helen). Although, I s’pose I could start looking for the ironic twinkle in their eyes in photos at the unveiling.

        • Heather

          Fascinating. First, THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. There are MANY other things I could think of to do with that money.

          Next, are any of them ever honorary? For example, as rajf notes below – this seems below some ‘real’ actors like Helen Mirren. Maybe they give out a few deserved ones just to keep the stakes high?

          • demidaemon

            Probably. The rest are just to pay for the real actor’s ceremonies. Although, I think someone could apply on your behalf as well, maybe.

            Someone with more knowledge than me could expound upon the subject.

            • aahlife

              Sometimes fans get together and fundraise the $30,000 for their celebrities they think deserve a star.

          • Derek_anny

            And some are probably paid for by the Studios.

        • sagecreek

          Ah, interesting, aah, thanks!

      • quiltrx

        I would certainly bet (though not the ‘entry fee’ LOL) that the producers of Riddick paid for this as a publicity stunt. The timing is quite suspect.

    • Emily Smith

      Oh man, his shoes. Clunky much.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      it’s been horribly hot and humid in so cal at the past week — michelle must be DYING in that dress. which would explain the sweaty spots.

    • Danielle

      He’s still yummy. I’d hit it.

      • Nancer

        I am so happy that I’m not the only one thinking this! At least my shame is shared…. :]

      • Lanus

        I hear this a lot, but just can’t see it, myself.

      • kirkyo

        He’s on my, I don’t know, “irrational like” list, never having seen any of his movies except Saving Private Ryan.

        Those shoes make me sad.

        • Derek_anny

          Rationale: I love his voice. I liked looking at him in…. whatever movie that was where he bought cars from Russians but wasn’t Fast/Furious. Also, I’m one of the few who liked the Riddick movie starring Dame Judy Dench with Karl Urban and Thandie Newton.

          • Katie McKinney

            I liked it too. And yes the voice, my other “why do I like this guy” guy that I like is Jason Statham.

            • Heather

              Yup. Also The Rock/Dwayne Johnson.

          • Heather

            Yes I LOVE me a deep voice. Combine that with a great bod and an olive complexion and… oh my.

    • Qitkat

      That’s some pretty calligraphy.

      • http://aspotofwhimsy.com/ diane {a spot of whimsy}

        Yea, who knew the City of LA was so fancy?!

      • Constant Reader

        Maybe the medieval manuscript look of the award is what inspired Michelle’s dress. She’s one wimple short of St. Teresa of Avila.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      I never realized how much Jordana Brewster looks like Abigail Spencer (I think that’s her name… Sally’s teacher in MM)

    • Ginny Ellsworth

      Everyone keeps saying Michelle’s working the RenFaire but all the people I’ve ever worked with in Sarasota and Texas Festivals were much better garbed than this. Historically accurate too (mostly)….there are always fairy wings that show up. Sigh.

      • Heather

        Maybe because it kind of appears to be made of chain mail? (sp?)

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Don’t give her ANY ideas for add ons…

      • sagecreek

        Scarby represent :)

      • Fordzo

        Ah, yes. The Renaissance Fairies.

      • Fordzo

        Last year I went to the RenFaire and while lounging on the grass watching the jousting, a couple came to stand near me. He was a pirate and she was his wench. Their costumes were really nice – like so nice that you kind of begin to wonder HOW MUCH of their free time they devote to this hobby, KWIM?

        Well, he stood and she got down on the ground and basically wrapped herself around his leg like she was about to hump it. She kept calling him “Master”, and I had to leave when she said, “Master! I am so parched! Please may I have a sip of your wine?” and he took a big gulp of wine, leaned over slightly, she opened her mouth and he spit the wine in her mouth.

        I like to think I’m OK with people who want to fly their freak flag, but I realized that day that I DO have a line, and it was crossed.

        • demidaemon

          This is an entertaining yet thoroughly disturbing story. I appreciate you sharing it!

        • Heather

          Wow. I guess D/S relationships cross into all subcultures. Fascinating.

    • Imasewsure

      Wow awkward

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      I actually think they both look gorgeous, although anytime the sweat stains show on your dress, you’re dressed too warm.

    • MilaXX

      He bores me. One costar looks over dressed and the other looks under dressed.

    • Shawn EH

      Cutest dress I’ve ever seen on Michele R.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      I don’t think Vin’s shirt is used to being buttoned up that high.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      Even in those hilarious platform shoes that is one yummy man right there. And that’s it I’m declaring it. Jordana does not age. She looks admittedly sweaty but also fabulous. Love the whole look. I’m sorry but ew Michelle put your nipples away.

    • lobsterlen

      Michelle looks so drippy with humidity she could grow orchids under that dress

    • stephbellard

      Standing between a lesbian and a lesbian’s wet dream does not make you look any less gay, Vin.

    • Rand Ortega

      Michelle’s dress is crying. Didn’t she get the memo that it was hot as Hell in LA yesterday? Aka: going outside to realize it was hot as Hell in LA yesterday?
      Love Jordana’s shoes, but the rest is brunch attire.
      I guess the ladies didn’t think Vin’s star ceremony was important enough to hire stylists.

    • Bethany Roullett

      I don’t care that his agent paid for the star, I love Vin Diesel SO HARD for getting Judi Dench to play Dungeons and Dragons with him!

    • decormaven

      That’s the most unorganized (in terms of fashion) photo shoot ever. How random can you get? Michelle got confused- she thought she was going to a casting call for the long-awaited remake of Excaliber, and Jordana Brewster was just going to stand on the corner and say “hey!” And why does Vin Diesel wear platforms? Is he that wee?

    • marlie

      Michelle, TOTALLY wrong dress for this event. Jordana looks fine, I suppose. And so does Vin, though I hate the heavy, clunky shoes that he’s wearing.

    • crash1212

      Jordana FTW. The other two just look like sweaty, bedraggled messes. Guess it was HOT that day. You’d think they could deploy some sort of shade for these wilting celebs.

    • Ashleigh

      huh?

    • sockandaphone

      michelle rodriguez is not only in an ugly dress, right here in socal its been strangely humid these past days (how do you people in the rest of the country do it? this is horrid) so i can even imagine wearing that in hollywood in the middle of the day AUGH

    • H2olovngrl

      Oh my GOD, Michelle Rodriguez must have been positively melting in that dress!

    • julnyes

      He looks like a potato.

    • Anniebet

      Michelle came straight here from her job at Medieval Times?

      I duuno, Vin always looks so teddy bear to me. Gotta love him, badly dressed or not.

    • demidaemon

      These are just turning into a big joke now. Vin Diesel, really?

      That said, these women look horrible and he looks pattern-blind.

    • quiltrx

      Notwithstanding the ridiculousity of this honor, I almost always find Vin hot. I’m having a slight disappoint that he has on so many clothes and is not giving me the Blue Steel I need. Maybe he used all that up in Riddick.

    • Louise Bryan

      Are those his two wives or something?
