Lupita Nyong’o in Prabal Gurung at the 2013 Governors Awards

Posted on November 18, 2013

From the waist up, its pure WERQ.

Unfortunately, from the waist down, it’s pretty much a WREQ.

We will cop to the fact that we hate tulip skirts. Hate ’em, hate ’em, hate ’em. They always say, “The curtain is rising… on my vagina!” We’re as gay as a pink Christmas tree full of twerking turtle doves, but every time we see a gal in one of these, our eyes go straight to her crotch.

We don’t think we’ve ever thought, uttered, or heard the words “What a flattering tulip skirt!” So, fine. We’re biased against them. But ask yourself: have you ever seen a tulip skirt on someone and thought it was really flattering? Models don’t count. Models never count.

In other, less ranty news, we don’t mind the trend for white shoes right now, but we really don’t think they look right with black dresses. Also: we’re going to need a ruling on her lip color. We love that she wears so much purple on her face, given the chance, but we’re not sure whether this looks chic, or like she just finished a giant grape lollipop.
