Lizzy Caplan in Reem Acra at the HFPA 2014 Golden Globe Awards Season Celebration

Posted on November 22, 2013

It is DELICIOUS to see someone bringing such personality and boldness to the red carpet. There’s never enough of it for our tastes.


“Masters of Sex” star Lizzy Caplan attends The Hollywood Foreign Press Association And InStyle Celebrates The 2014 Golden Globe Awards Season at Fig & Olive Melrose Place in West Hollywood, California in Reem Acra.

Reem Acra Spring 2014 Collection

She’s giving us “Bianca Jagger at Studio 54” and we’re dying.

Don’t get us wrong. She’s not shattering any taboos or anything, but we just love the boldness and attitude here. The only thing that bugs is the shoe choice. They just don’t look fierce enough for the rest of the outfit and they kind of pull your eye down. We’re thinking she could’ve used more disco-fab makeup since there’s not much you can do to disco-fab that hair.

    I dunno. It looks like she’s totally overwhelmed by this garment, both in fit and in print.

    • Vickiefantastico

      Yeah, I don’t get it either.

    • The model is rockin’ it with much more attitude and pizzazz.

  • bertkeeter

    Worse that the DIOR inspiration I’m sure they got this from!

  • hughman

    Masters of Chex.

      Badum-ching. You done it again.

  • Sarah

    I likes it. But I think maybe little curlers, left in for a long time, and then a faux-fro would’ve been disco-fab hair.

  • sagecreek

    Love it! But then, I’m a sucker for houndstooth.

    • alyce1213

      I got a b&w houndstooth carrier for my kitty. Chic.

      • Ooh! Elegant!

      • kimmeister

        What shape is it? For my (smaller) girl cat, I have a green plastic carrier shaped like a bubble that all the veterinary staff always say looks like a spaceship pod. For my boy cat, I have a blue, structured backpack that has a black mesh window. Once, I took Chai for a bike ride wearing the backpack; he found it a little windy, I think. I got some interesting looks from the neighbors . . .

        • alyce1213

          It’s a standard kennel/carrier shape w/multiple zippered mesh windows and top handle & long strap. Got it on etsy (sheepish grin). They show it with red trim, but I got all b&w.
          I’d like to take Morgane out in a backpack, I wonder how she’d do.

        • That’s so cool! Urchin yells to the world that we are abusing her whenever we put her in her carrier, I’d get arrested if I took her on a bike ride.

          • kimmeister

            My husband’s requirement for cat #3, should we get one, is that it be a cat that we could take hiking, like that adorable stray that joined up with the French hikers a few years ago.

      • conniemd

        I have a black and white Pashmina houndstooth check scarf. I always feel cheery when I wear it.

    • lunchcoma

      Anyone wearing houndstooth gets an automatic WERQ in my book.

    • tereliz

      Lol I should have read before I posted.

  • Latin Buddy

    I’m FLOORED! TLo commentary on a Whiteboard post! Bitter Kittens, I love ya’ll but 90% of the reason I come to this site 20 times a day is that I love the TLo seal of bitchery. I actually imagine those two sitting in their fab desks typing on their laptops like Carrie Bradshaw before she got annoying and cut off her hair.

  • Aidan B

    Reem Acra? Coulda fooled me. I’m seeing Mondo.

  • MilaXX

    Love it, it’s a very Samantha Jones outfit, but I hate the shoe.

    • Sarah

      Metallic sandal, maybe.

  • Danielle

    What’s it made of? YOUR MOM’S CHEST HAIR!

  • I will always and forever be a fan of the properly deployed houndstooth, and this certainly qualifies. Well done, Ms. Caplan. And while I doubt is was her intention, it inspires a hearty, Roll Tide bitches.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      Ha – Roll Tide! I love houndstooth too, even without the Bama connection. I must say, I’ll be glad when the public shunning of necklaces is over. Outfits just don’t look finished without one, in my opinion.

      • 3boysful

        Maybe even lose the Wonder Woman belt, and have some kind of lariat here.

    • 3boysful


  • Tatiana Luján

    ugly shoes and unflattering hem lenght, but I live this look.
    I am biased, since I regard her as fabulous, talented, smart, sassy and beautiful.

  • another_laura

    I’m a houndstooth lover, and this is providing my RDA. The dessert is the kind of batsh#t factor of it.

    Hate the shoes.

    • 3boysful

      I actually like the shoes and the way their strong lines echo the print. I am, however, a tad worried they are some kind of grandma, comfy-stretch material . . . .

  • Victoria Anzalone

    Love her. Love this.

  • beebee10

    J’adore! I’m not adoring Masters of Sex, but this look is fun.
    After madmen, it’s hard to watch a period show that does not reflect the period culturally. It’s dressed like the time but does not remotely feel like any time but now.

  • Clueless_Jock

    She’s too covered up. Sleeveless or a shorter hem would have been better.

  • alyce1213

    I love it, but better on the model. It seems too much for her, too long and maybe too big?
    Shucks, she could’ve done a little something with her hair.

  • marlie

    I love this! The skirt could use a little hem, and the shoes aren’t perfect, but I still think she pretty much knocked this one out of the park.

  • Julie

    How can a heel that tall look so very geriatric? The rest of the outfit is nice though.

    • sagecreek

      You’re not wrong. I would have gone for a sleek pump, myself, given that the dress was so very busy.

  • Shawn EH

    A chicer bob and … little booties, or is that way too 80s?

  • E. D.

    Hate the shoes.

  • The gold in the middle is gorgeous. It’s a step in the right direction to be noticed as “Lizzie Caplan” and not “Which quirky brunette?”

  • KT

    Work bitch!

  • shopgirl716

    That is a whole lotta houndstooth.

  • tereliz

    God I love this dress. Sucker for houndstooth. Now I need a haircut and a flat iron.

  • MoHub

    I need to go clean my contacts.

    • greymain


  • ashtangajunkie

    Love this, but would love it more with a better shoe and a bolder lip.

  • Tracey Magyar

    Love it all except the shoes!

  • Fred Vaughn

    Shoes are too chunky, but the rest is Honey Crisp!

  • María José Benites Peralta

    I absolutely love this. So chic and eye catching

  • akprincess72

    Anyone have an idea of what the lip color is?

  • MannahattaMamma

    It’s really great when she’s standing still, but the minute she moves everyone around her will get dizzy and fall down. And then they’d be on eye-level with those heinous shoes.

  • Lilyana_F

    Yesss, miss Lizzy, I’m buying what u’re selling here!

  • judybrowni

    Luv huh.

    Love the dress, not the shoes, and she’s better as brunette (like on Masters of Sex.)

  • crash1212

    Great dress. Bad shoes. Sad hair.

  • Gatto Nero

    The dress is *pow*. Needs a closed shoe with a little heft.

  • pdquick

    I don’t think the problem is the shoes pulling the focus down, it’s the hair. The hair is flat and pointing down to the shoes. With this dress, it needs to have some life in it.

  • suzq

    SHORTEN THE HEM, DESIGNERS!!!! Your starlets are not all 6’1″ and your clothes look ridiculous otherwise.
