Claire Danes in Giambattista Valli on David Letterman

Posted on November 15, 2013

We’re feeling kind of bitchy this morning. Let’s all feel bitchy together. Waitress? We’ll take our coffee BITTER over here, please.


Claire Danes at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City for an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” in a Giambattista Valli silk dress and tweed coat from the Resort 2014 collection.

Did we ever mention that we knew we’d become professional fashion bloggers when we could spell “Giambattista Valli” without looking it up? Or that we knew we’d become professional celebrity bloggers when we could spell “Scarlett Johansson” without looking it up? Double consonants. They’re our spelling downfall. It’s embarasing sometimes.

We’ve had this argument with the Bitter Kittens before, when Michelle Obama became First Lady and demonstrated a preference for the look, but we’re not fans of the matching coat and dress. It comes off way too old-school Barbie/Jackie Kennedy to us. And hey, we love old school Barbie and think Jackie Kennedy was a true style icon, but some looks don’t look modern anymore when you recreate them as literally as this. It’s made worse by the matchy shoes, although we have to admit, we’re a little impressed by the commitment to the theme here.  But maybe we’d like the style more if the coat itself didn’t look so old-fashioned. The dress looks like it could be cute, although we don’t like that horizontal line across the sternum.

As for the hair, we think we like the color; not sure about the cut until we see more of it.

But GIRL, That is NOT Your Eye Makeup. TRUST.
