Friday Leftovers

Posted on August 29, 2014

All right, ya big lame-os, line up. None of y’all made the T Lo grade for the week, but our incessant need to have the last word on everything compels us to assess you.

Zoe Saldana in PreenFriday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-8-29-2014-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)Zoe Saldana attends the premiere of “Cantinflas” in Hollywood, California in Preen.


Actually, this is cute and we have no problem with, but she’s crazy for wearing those strappy heels while she’s pregnant.



Cate Deeley in Burberry

Also very acceptable. She would probably slap us for saying this, but she’d do so much better if she kept things much simpler in her style. This is elegant and chic. It’s probably the best thing we’ve seen her wear in a while. Perfect amount of jewelry.



Felicity Jones in Miu Miu
Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-8-29-2014-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (3)Felicity Jones attends the “Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7 – #8″ premiere during the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy in Miu Miu.


Is this an Italian film festival or an Italian funeral?



Jennifer Morrison in Jasper Conran
Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-8-29-2014-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (4)Jennifer Morrison attends 2014 Entertainment Weekly’s Pre Emmy Party in West Hollywood, California in Jasper Conran.


It doesn’t get any more standard than this, but she deserves a pat on the head whenever she gets it right (because it’s such a rarity).

Those shoes offend the Christ Child.



Katharine McPhee in Naeem Khan
Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-8-29-2014-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (5)Katharine McPhee attends 2014 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party in West Hollywood, California in Naeem Khan.


If Lupita was wearing this, we’d think it was gorgeous. On her? Sickly twee.

A pop-of-color shoe would’ve helped.

Actually, you know who this would look great on? Mindy Kaling.



Kylie Minogue
Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-8-29-2014-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (6)Kylie Minogue attends photocall to launch Glaceau Smartwater in London.


There’s something kind of coo-coo-ca-choo fabulous about it.



Laura Prepon
Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-8-29-2014-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (7)Laura Prepon attends 2014 Variety and Women in Film Emmy Nominee Celebration in West Hollywood, California.


That weird temp in accounting who never signs birthday cards.



Taraji P. Henson
Friday-Red-Carpet-Rundown-8-29-2014-Fashion-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (8)Taraji P.Henson attends special screening for “No Good Deed” in Los Angeles, California.

Taraji, honey, just because you can wear a crop top on the red carpet doesn’t’ mean you should. The shapes are totally wrong here.

And speaking of weird shapes…



Taryn Manning in Cristiano Bruni

Too many blues for us, but we really dig that jacket and shirt together.

    • S-k-s

      My eyes!!! I cannot unsee whatever the hell that is masquerading as tarryn Manning’s breasts. Makes me wish for some kardashian boob tape (have they branded that yet?)

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Tarryn’s showing off enough boobage that I expect to hear the overture for “Oklahoma”-when the winds coming sweepin’ down the plains

        • Ginmaru

          Taryn’s showing so much boobage that the mall cops are trying to throw her out thinking she is breastfeeding.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            This dress is not working in so many ways.

      • Baghag

        I think she just got them, so she’s taking them out for a spin, showing them the town so to speak..

    • @Biting Panda

      Taryn Manning needs to be stopped. She is waging a one woman assault on our eyes, every time she leaves the house.

    • gloriana232

      “That weird temp in accounting who never signs birthday cards.”

      Kinda died.

      • @Biting Panda

        Laughed and looked around to an empty room, dying to share that with someone.

        • decormaven

          You did – we’re here.

          • TiffanyJWhite

            I just got paid


          • CarolWJohnson

            I just got paid


      • Sanglots longs

        Yeah, I checked to see if she had painted her nails with white-out.

        • International Model

          From boredom. BOREDOM.

      • Boulderista

        Hey I think I worked with her … had bells sewn into the hemlines of all her clothing to scare off the bad spirits

      • scoobysnacks

        I knew a girl like her in high school. Wouldn’t sign my senior yearbook. Said she didn’t know me well enough (huh?). 1) We’d been in school together for 4 years, were in the same circle of friends, and worked together in various group projects. 2) I wasn’t asking her to be a frickin’ bridesmaid. Sign your name, say ‘have a great summer!’ or something, and stop being such a witch.

    • hughman

      Poor Kylie looks like she’s handing out water bottles to the Press line.

      And NO, Taryn Manning, you can NOT be on American Horror Story this season but nice try.

      • Ramon Figueroa

        She doesn’t need to be in American Horror Story. She is an American Horror Story unto her own.

    • MilaXX

      Mindy Kaling would look really cute with that silver dress.
      Taryn Manning just jumped to the top of the worst dress for the year award. That is awful!
      Taraji’s outfit are definitely the wrong shape for her. I think she could get away with the Siriano that Sarah Hyland wore to the Emmys.

      • @Biting Panda

        TM’s breast appear (by hint of curve showing) to be rather large, yet the are completely gone from her torso. It’s as if they’ve gone hiding in her armpits, a trick I can only master while laying flat on my back.

        • smh4748

          I can’t blame them for fleeing. The poor things are probably ashamed at what she’s trying to do to them here. Were I a sentient boob, I’d probably head for an armpit as well.

          • understateddiva

            at last, a name for my band. It’s an all-female Devo cover band.

            • FibonacciSequins

              That’s a great band name.

          • conniemd

            I kinda love Sentient Boob for a band name, or TV reality show or that matter. If boobs could talk………

        • tb

          Spewed wine on my screen…hiding in her armpits…snort

    • bluefish

      Wearing heels while pregnant are some of the last chances one gets–sometimes. Being pregnant and wearing heels and clothes one likes = good. Pregnant ladies tend to be living in super human mode. She’s okay. When the baby-be-oh is born another story. And then add ten years. Zoe will be okay.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        A former colleague of mine, who was always impeccably dressed, wore 3 inch heels throughout her three pregnancies(one of which was with twins). Our boss at the time would fuss at her for wearing those heels, and she calmly told him that she was used to wearing heels, and walked into her office, ending the conversation. So, Zoe, you go for it as long as you are feeling comfortable.

        • bluefish

          Sounds about right — Pregnancy can be such a great time. The real danger has less to do with heels and such and more to do with just all of a sudden being suffused with hormones and letting it fly, as in from the brain and out the mouth. Don’t mess with us while preggers unless you want to hear what we really really think — It’s definitely an empowered state of being! Especially if one isn’t ill throughout. I’m pushing 60 and unfortunately can’t wear heels anymore — ballet flats now because they expose that nice part of the foot. I do so miss wearing high-heeled shoes. And wearing a good size 6.

          All that said, it’s nice to feel that folks care about one’s well-being. Miss that too.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I have such fond memories of this gal. I always told her that she was the best dressed mother of four I knew, and she was. She always looked so well put together, but even better she was (and likely still is) a really great person.

            • bluefish

              Right on, Ms Bitchy. Style evolves and translates, right? And there are women one never forgets. And men. Finding, owning, and honing a look don’t necessarily make for a great person but in some one can read something more and better. Hard to describe or define but some folks dress and conduct themselves in a way that signals a greater love and awareness. Sounds twee but ain’t. Fond memories are the best and I’m sure she was gorgeous and not to be forgotten. Good on you for writing of her in this way. I see the stylish that you are in that.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              You made my day-thanks.

            • bluefish

              And you made mine. Take care of yourself and cheers! Takes on to know one — I’m sure you are bringing much pleasure with your looks and mind.

      • kerryev

        Love your super human mode comment. I’m mostly in regular pregnant human mode, but around 15 weeks I decided to stop wearing flats unless my ankles are covered. Heels don’t totally fix the giant-ankles issue but they help and I know I’m going to be terribly sick of boots soon enough.

      • Gayer Than Thou

        Is Saldana pregnant again or still? Hasn’t she been pregnant for a long time?

    • ktr33

      what is Taryn Manning trying to tell us? what is the message? I know what the medium is. Her boobs. But what are they SAYING?

      • Constant Reader

        The problem is that they’re talking to us from two different latitudes so the message is garbled.

    • NBG

      Ok, Zoe can pull off that twee collar while pregnant, but no one else, you hear me? I don’t want to see it on anyone else.

      Snaps of respect to Cat Deeley for finally getting a RC win.

      • kimmeister

        Zoe’s feet are also miraculously pulling off that reverse-diagonal strap that makes every else’s feet (except for Emma Roberts’) look deformed.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      Taryn, methinks your dress is on backward…

    • Yoshio

      Kylie Minogue’s outfit has a 60’s sex kitten vibe a la Ann Margaret or Brigitte Bardot. If she’d done a bouffant, it would have been spot on or over the top…

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        That outfit is giving off a “Kitten with a Whip” vibe, now that you mention it.

    • Mona_Visa

      So, Taryn, looks like you’re okay for another six months but I gotta tell ya YOU REALLY NEED TO LEARN to do a SELF exam. Save yourself a lotta money.

    • Jarethee

      Ironically, Kylie actually has a song called “Kookachoo”. She looks gorgeous here. Shes super tiny, but always manages to dress so you can never tell.

    • ryenerman

      Orlando Bloom, you wash your hair this instant!

      • decormaven

        True. Love that jacket and shirt, but his hair detracts from the overall look.

    • marlie

      The commentary for Taryn Manning had me DYING. For real… what IS that??

      I love Cat Deely”s dress. She’d be smart to go the simple chic route.

      Nice shirt and jacket on Orlando.

      • @Biting Panda

        We love the Cat, it’s so nice to see her looking like the goddess she is.

        • Snailstsichr

          To me, this is a personal best for Cat. I hope she continues to go for chic; it really suits her.

          • Kitten Mittons

            I vote personal best as well. She looks fantastic!

    • Noah

      Taryn Manning. Holy shit. TLo’s 15 Worst of 2014. Near the top.

    • conniemd

      I think Taryn Manning’s “dress” (loosely defined) deserved its own post and not to be in a red carpet rundown. Truly, I’ve seen a lot of boob displaying garments, but never one cut that wide and that low that exposed droopy boobs and such titscrepancy. She should have either burned that dress or sent it off to Rihanna.

      edited to add that it reminds me of those nightmares you have where you are at work and discover that you are naked from the waist up. I can see the nightmare – “oh my god, what did my stylist put me in?”

      • StillGary

        I JUST WROTE THAT! Maybe we could share a therapist?

    • International Model

      …did McPhee have work done? Her face looks unsettled.

      Also, I was that temp in accounting, down to the long black hair (and seven years later, I’m still here). Twenty-nine people saying the exact same thing is not quite the birthday treat for the birthday boy or girl. Eventually, I just started using stickers so I could get participation points without being repetitive.

      • Aimee Parrott

        LOLing at “unsettled.”

      • Adrianna Grężak

        I worked at a small scholarly publishing firm that celebrated all birthdays, along with the office birthday card. It was an odd exercise to promote company moral, but overall you got a sense of how much you were valued or liked in the company.

        My birthday was “forgotten” and awkwardly celebrated the next day, whereas the vice president of the company went out of her way to buy a French pastries for one of my coworkers. I regretted reading the card, and overall felt that it would’ve been better if my birthday wasn’t “celebrated” in this half ass manner.

        • International Model


        • Snailstsichr

          Maybe we are soul sisters. My birthday is the week before the most popular person in the office and I always got forgotten until a new administrative assistant put all the birthdays on a calendar. I believe it is her claim to fame.
          I always draw a little picture on office cards. I am not at all gifted at drawing, but I have a great collection of gel pens so at least I am colorful!

          • Cheryl

            The past 5 years I’ve had to drop huge hints but in 2013 I was completely ignored (I’m a volunteer, not a “staff member,” although I work there full time). This year for my 65th I decided I’d take matters into my own hands – so to speak. My boyfriend took the hint and showed up with platters of sandwiches, soda, and the most chocolately cake I’ve ever had. It was a super-happy day. After this I don’t mind if they forget, I’ve had my party.

          • Adrianna Grężak

            That office wrote birthdays on the company calendar! But this was publishing in 2012, it was a print calendar that nobody looked that -_-

            I think I was in the most awkward predicament when it was my birthday two weeks after I started a new job. (Four days a week at a high end consignment store in NYC, so even less time spent in my three-person e-commerce department.) I wasn’t planning on even mentioning it until I misunderstood what the manager meant by inventory review in a different location, (insinuating I didn’t do the task properly to avoid work) and he made some nasty comment about the chocolate cake I bought for myself. That’s when I said “well it’s my birthday” and it got awkward real fast.

          • Adrianna Grężak

            Drawing on birthday cards is a great idea. Far more creative and thoughtful than what I write – “all the best!”

            I always tried to reach for the one inside joke or experience I had with a coworker when signing a card in the publishing firm. But that firm had a weird office culture, very formal and impersonal relationships. It’s the only contract I’ve ever had that specified what kind of clothes I need to wear in an office.

        • Sherilyne Cox

          I moved into a new department last December, but my new team completely overlooked my b-day two months ago, even though it is on the shared calendar. Former department colleagues and other friends stopped by the office with a fresh coconut cake (divine) and I shared it, but still, not even a “sorry we forgot your b-day card.” No remarks or good wishes whatsoever. I’ve made sure to remember the four birthdays since with donuts, etc. Self-centered heifers with poor taste, and unfortunate grammar. There! I finally said it.

        • Sam Smith

          I hate office birthday celebrations. We have a once a month thing for all the birthdays in the month. One year, when I was not getting along with the office manager, my month was forgotten. I was email joking with the other birthday girl from my month and the next day we had a belated (it was the next month after all) birthday celebration. I got really creeped out by that assuming that the office manger was reading my emails, although my boss (the big boss of the office who also didn’t like he office manager) assured me that was not true.

    • Aimee Parrott

      pennsatucky breasts! PENNSATUCKY BREASTS!!! MY EYYYYYEEEEEESSSSS!!!!!

      • StillGary

        Damn, why didn’t she wear the teeth?

        • Aimee Parrott

          Oh, it’s too bad she didn’t! That would have been perfect.

    • Ginmaru

      This question is for the Shoe Goddesses…What do you think of Zoe in a men’s style brogue or better yet **Spectators**…..because I just love Spectators. Would that flatten her out or make her look too twee.

      • Tlazolteotl

        Ooh, I too love a spectator pump.

      • TheGreenWomanV

        I was just talking about spectator pumps the other day. Think they’ll ever make a comeback?

      • smayper

        I’m a little obsessed with spectator oxfords at the moment.

        • Ginmaru

          That’s exactly what I was thinking!

          • smayper

            We are of one mind. One shallow, fashion-obsessed mind, but still.

            • Ginmaru

              Great minds think alike. So do homocidal maniacs as well but I’m pushing for great minds. :-)

    • ShaoLinKitten

      Orlando Bloom and Luke Evans have the same hair… I like it better on Luke Evans, who seems much less douchey.

      Does Taryn Manning’s atrocity have illusion netting across her chest?

      • FibonacciSequins

        It looks like there’s illusion netting there.

        • Ginmaru

          Or a safety net.

          • demidaemon

            I hope so. Her boobs look about a millisecond away from escaping, so any attempts to rein them in are necessary.

        • ShaoLinKitten

          Somehow the illusion netting makes it worse, not better.

          • FibonacciSequins


          • SugarSnap108

            Illusion netting makes everything worse: Indisputable fact.

    • FibonacciSequins

      “That weird temp in accounting who never signs birthday cards.” You’ve clearly put time in as office drones.

      What happened to Katharine McPhee? Or have I forgotten what she looks like?

      Taryn Manning’s neckline and chest are sagging like they’re made of Silly Putty. What even?

    • bluefish

      Nothing to say about the looks except that being pregnant and heels aren’t the warning they might appear to be. Pregnancy, a happy one, confers some Guardians of the Galaxy protections. Ask Zoe how she feels some years from now — When years from now she doesn’t recognize her foot print or dress size.

      I would love to see a new feature from you all that highlights looks from whatever age and epoch you love.

      And thank you for being nice. I’ve lost my cool a few time with the pair of you — appreciate not being banned.

      And if I was and didn’t know it okay too. Go for the positive and tell us what you like.

    • StillGary

      Taryn Manning — it’s like those dreams I have where I’ve gone out with no pants and I think, “if I act natural, they won’t notice…”

      • FibonacciSequins

        Someone else said the same thing and that’s exactly the feeling I get from looking at her.

    • dash1211

      “MOTHER MARY COME TO ME, what is THAT?”–I love you guys.

      • Ginmaru

        “speaking words of wisdom, let it be….”

        • Tlazolteotl

          Yes, the Uncles ARE speaking words of wisdom. Let it be, Taryn Manning. Let it be.

    • vahtel

      Get your hands out of your pockets, Orlando!

    • snarkykitten

      Since we’re going with Beatles references, would you call Orlando Bloom a blue meanie…?

    • LadyVimes

      Orlando Bloom always looks so worn down now. It makes me sad.

    • KendraMR

      First, her cousins Peyton and Eli gave us the Manning face, now Taryn gives us the Manning breaststroke.

      • Kitten Mittons

        Wait, are they really cousins???

        • KendraMR

          Yeah, Taryn’s father and Archie Manning are first cousins.

          • Kitten Mittons

            That blows my mind. Archie and his family are the epitome of southern grace and class. And then…..the above.

            All jokes aside, that’s a cool piece of trivia.

    • imustacheyouaquestion

      Tarryn Manning’s makes me think of the ben stiller “v neck” skit from SNL

    • SophieCollier

      Taryn’s dress is on backwards?

      • poggi

        I think there is illusion on the front keeping her breasts in the dress, which means …that someone intended this dress to be worn this way. This really is a horror story.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      I’m totally the weird “temp in accounting” who never signs birthday cards. I love that outfit.

    • alyce1213

      The only good thing to be said about Taryn Manning’s atrocity is that Kim K didn’t get her hands on it first.

      • Adrianna Grężak

        Oh good God, good point

    • Ray

      Tarryn has her backless dress on backwards.

    • quiltrx

      I’m tired of upsetting boobs. I’m still not over the KK West titty makeup debacle, and then Taryn shows up with this shit.
      How does a girl that small even have pancakes that big…and that flat?
      Ugh, my head AND stomach hurt.

      • Sophie

        It might be wishful thinking, but I’m seeing a rounded illusion netting line around the notch in the collar. If there is indeed a vast expanse of illusion netting on her torso, it might be too tight, explaining the pancakes.

        • BLauDGaspode

          That is what I thought I was seeing, too. Egads.

    • NurseEllen

      “Mother Mary Come to Me” is the escalation comment from “Sweet Jesus on a Breadstick”, I think. Hysterical!! PS: it is totally called for in this instance.

      I rather love Zoe Saldana’s look, but my real question has to do with the project she is promoting. “Cantinflas”? Is it a bio of the actor? If you have seen “Around the World in Eighty Days”, Cantinflas played the manservant, Passepartout. He was droll and amusing and one of the good spots of an otherwise dumb movie, which somehow managed to take Best Picture in its year. Definitely has not aged well.

      • kimmeister

        I believe it is. Every since I married a Mexican American and became surrounded by Latinos all the time, I hear references to Cantinflas ALL THE TIME but have never actually seen any of his work. (I’ve been at a training event in Spanish all week and just heard a Cantinflas reference from the Puerto Rican instructor today). I might have to see this just to get all the references!

    • Erica

      Wow. It’s tacky as all get out, of course, but who knew that Taryn had that much boobage? Or that, apparently, they are real? I haven’t gotten to the last few episodes of this season, but these haven’t made an appearance on OITNB, have they?

      • demidaemon

        They might have in her backstory last season, but that would have been the only possibility.

    • BLauDGaspode

      Taryn is simply incorporating her sincere love of Dali…

    • YoungSally

      My grandmother would serve little foil packages of leftovers on Thursday nights and referred to it as Catholic Review of the Week… your title made me smile……that said the WTF on Taryn Manning also make me want to pray to God….

      • bluefish

        Your grandmother sounds like a real jewel. LOVE this anecdote and will steal the phrase. Too funny. Thank you.

    • deech_sea

      “MOTHER MARY COME TO ME, what is THAT?

      WHAT IS THAT?!?!?” Nice! All that ran through my mind was a banal “WTF?!”

    • GinnyThePainter

      An art critic once pointed out that only a gay Catholic like Warhol would have painted Marilyn Monroe the way he did.

      I could be wrong, but i think only gay Catholic fashion bloggers over 40 would so brilliantly dismiss an outfit with “MOTHER MARY COME TO ME, what is THAT? WHAT IS THAT?!?!?”

    • kimmeister

      Kylie is sporting pants with an INSANE crotch. (Man, I miss Michael Kors on PR!)

    • CJ Guziewicz

      Taraji has that early 70’s Angie Dickinson vibe going on, it’s a cool editorial look

    • GillianHolroyd

      Awww. Taraji Henson looks so cute in that outfit. Kicky.

    • bluefish

      Apropos of nothing, I’d LOVE a TLo feature on perfumes that you like. It would be like watching Top Chef.

    • Vera

      Katherine McPhee looks way cute in that dress, but now that you guys mentioned matching it up with Lupita, I so want to see her in it.

    • Big Bear

      Taryn Manning: considered googling to find out who she is but no.

    • titaness25

      Gaze upon my clavicle. GAZE UPON IT, THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU.

    • Sweetvegan

      Taryn’s dress looks like it’s backwards. Remember the dress in “The Man with One Red Shoe”? It looked very demure from the front, but the back was extremely low and plunging.

    • Avonell

      I knew I should have come on here so early. Dammut Taryn.

      Kylie’s pic made me SMILE- you know you nailed it when you get that reaction..Brava!!!

      am I the only one getting a ‘in 3-D vibe’ from Katharine McPhee? Its like her tits are leaping out of the screen at you….dreadful.

      What’s wrong with Tarryn’s boobs??

        So help me, my first thought was of those printed T-shirts. You know, like a faux tuxedo or phenomenal bikini body.

      Maybe Taryn has it on backwards? And yes, that might be the best I’ve ever seen Cat Daley look.

      What the hell is Taryn Manning wearing? I don’t know who the hell she is but I also don’t want to.

      i think Orlando looks cute. Who do you guys dislike more, Orlando or Adrien Brody?

      I hereby nominate Taryn Manning as Miss White Trash America of 2014. She wears a crown made of Fritos and Mountain Dew can pop tops. Her cape is a threadbare faux-mink blanket with two white wolves howling at a half-moon and her throne is a sagging old couch set out on the front porch.

      Who is Katherine McPhee trying to fool. Ugh!

      This must be a personal best for Cat Deeley. She usually dresses as tacky as Heidi Klum.

      Holy SHIT Taryn Manning. Speechless.
