Miss Lady took the occasion of her hosting duties to cycle through more costume changes than a Cher farewell tour, a decision to which we are forced to respond with a million Attagirls.

Let’s take them one by one, shall we?

This is probably our favorite of the three. The color looks great on her, the sweep of the skirt is dramatic, and the head styling situation is on point – and very pretty (except for those lower lashes). But we cannot sign off on that bust/bodice, although we use the term loosely; as loosely as that thing, whatever you call it, fits.

This one, not so much. The color doesn’t seem to do much for her, plus it looks so tight as to render her incapable of movement. Let’s just walk quickly past this one, shall we?

Girl, if we were awarding points, you’d be docked a ton of them just for that tired Angelina pose. The dress is pretty enough, but a little bit high on the been-there/done-that scale. Love the hair and jewelry but we seriously question that lip color.
