Miss Uma is rocking the shit out this suit and we are swooning, because we’re huge proponents of ladypants on the red carpet.
Uma Thurman attends the premiere of ‘Playing For Keeps’ in New York City in Atelier Versace.
Simple and classic. We’re not in love with the shoes, though. A metallic sandal would’ve made a better impression.
We’re not sure why we’re so keen on the red carpet ladypant. We suppose it comes down to our aversion to princess fantasies and how the red carpet feeds into them so much. Red carpets are part of a working celebrity’s job and there’s a part of us that finds it a little distasteful that a working gal is expected to show up looking like Cinderella when a working guy in the exact same position – and often at the exact same event – is given a free pass for showing up looking like he’s on a Home Depot run. Our attempt to resolve that is to be as hard or harder on the men than we are on the women when it comes to red carpet assessments, but since we know we’re pissing in the wind here, we suppose it’s easier just to praise the ladies for taking it down a notch while still looking stylish and put together.
Having said all that, upon a second look, we have to admit that this is just a skosh too tight on her and that it would look better with a straight-leg pant, rather than the slight flare she’s working now. Still, it’s a great suit and she looks comfortable and stylish.
