Lizzy Caplan in Alberta Ferretti on David Letterman

Posted on September 26, 2013

Loving this look on her:

Lizzy Kaplan makes an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” in an Alberta Ferretti blue velvet dress paired with Christian Louboutin pumps.

Pure perfection. She’s got an innate chicness and poise that prevents this from looking too twee. Although granted, we could’ve done without the little bows on her shoes.

It’s like the entire cast of Mean Girls exists just to remind us all of how far Lindsay’s fallen.

Anyway, we watched the Masters of Sex pilot and we found it a little try-too-hard. For one, it had that annoying period story quality of all the characters discussing openly just how historical and groundbreaking everything is. For another, it had that annoying dialogue quality of having characters clearly and concisely state their desires, goals, boundaries, and limitations. People don’t know themselves or their surroundings that well in real life. Part of the reason a show like Mad Men (which Masters of Sex clearly owes a lot to) works so well as a period piece is because most of the characters walk through the period totally unconcerned with history and constantly repeating their own mistakes because they’re so un-self-aware. Masters of Sex has a lot to recommend it, but it really needs to learn that fundamental lesson about people and history in order to work for us.
