When a beloved celebrity (or at least a celeb with a couple of beloved roles under her belt) wears a questionable dress, we turn into total wusses and try to back out of saying mean things about her choices.
But we’re afraid duty calls.
We don’t like.
To our mild surprise, she seems to like Studio 54-ready, glitter-and-glam looks way more than we would have predicted. It’s not that she can’t work a smokey eye and plunging neckline now and then. It’s just that we wouldn’t have rec’d it as her go-to look. To our way of thinking, she should be leaning into her apple-cheeked, bright-eyed sunniness. We once jokingly made a reference to her and her husband Dave Franco looking like a modern-day Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, but the comparison to the former isn’t totally without merit. Her lane is “pretty, likable comedy gal” in the “Mary Tyler Moore to Friends-era Jen Aniston” range. Have fun with your car wash skirt, by all means, Miss Lady. But that’s not your sweet spot. Cute, colorful sportswear is where all your style super powers lie. We’re just saying.
