Anna Paquin in Alexander McQueen at the HBO’s 2013 Emmys After Party

Posted on September 25, 2013

Sorry for the down time yesterday, darlings. It was planned and then sorta not planned, if you know what we mean. Here. We’ll use Anna as an illustration of that idea.



“True Blood” star Anna Paquin attends HBO’s Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Post Award Reception at The Plaza in Los Angeles, California in an Alexander McQueen leather dress paired with Casadei pumps and Cathy Waterman jewelry.

PLANNED, in that it’s all coordinated and of a theme. Said theme being, “I’m your scary little dominatrix,” apparently.

UNPLANNED, in that it’s a little half-assed and … we don’t know… perfunctory, we guess. No surprises.

Maybe it’s because we’re not loving that dress on her. Or maybe we think the severe hair and makeup – which seems to be a theme lately – is not really her friend, especially when paired with a leather dress. For once, the accessories are our favorite parts. Love the shoes and the bangles. If they were paired with a more interesting dress, we’d be kinder.

Seriously, this is a girl who needs color. She needs to stop defaulting to black. That bog-standard vampire marketing schtick only goes so far, hon.
