Since we’re on such a kick about seasonally inappropriate celebrity style lately, we suppose we should say that the white skirt is a really odd choice for October.
“Witches of East End” star Jenna Dewan-Tatum makes an appearance on “Live! with Kelly and Michael” in New York City.
Except it pretty much works. The blouse is really cute, the black panel in the skirt keeps it from reading too “July,” and the shoes take the whole look somewhere ’80s and secretarial, which we kind of love for her. Seriously, that blouse is cute. Wish she’d gone for a darker shade on her lip, though.
Now, Witches of East End. Who’s caught it? Again, we plan on doing a writeup on it at some point (we know we keep saying this lately but trust us, we’ve had a bear of a month on a lot of fronts), but we’ll say this: It’s worth your time if you want some rather light fantasy in your life at the moment. It makes a nice counterpoint to the deliciously fucked up world of American Horror Story: Coven. These witches are more in the lines of that old Kidman/Bullock joint, Practical Magic, with a little bit of the kind of campy silliness you’d see on Charmed or even Buffy. We don’t want to overstate it, though. No one’s winning any Emmys in this crowd, but it’s an energetic and entertaining cast, for the most part, and we’re always impressed by how well the writing unfolds an ongoing story each week, keeping you slightly sucked in, even if some of the subplots scream “bad romance novel.” It is Lifetime, after all. But it’s fun. Maybe not appointment TV, but we’ve found it a good way to close out a Sunday night after watching people being eaten alive on The Walking Dead.
