In this, The Summer Henceforth To Be Known As The Summer When The Stars Ran Screaming From Color (or TSHTBKATSWTSRSFC, for short) Miss Lizzy springs a scrolldown surprise on us.
Lizzy Caplan attends Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” Season 2 – 2014 Summer TCA Press Tour Event at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California in a Roksanda top and maxi skirt paired with Brian Atwood satin pumps.
BAM. Pops of color, bitchez!
Aaaaannnnd this is why we’ve pulled back a bit from overusing the “This could use a pop of color” line. Lately it seems to be getting deployed in ways that distract from the look. We’d have been fine with the royal blue pumps (which seems to be the trend these last few weeks, as if the yellow pump micro-trend has already died off), but the bright pink AND the blue render the look a little unbalanced. Actually, strike that. VERY unbalanced. If we were being perfectly bitchy about it (instead of the imperfect bitchiness you’re getting), we’d say this was a look put together for a gal who doesn’t want anyone looking at her face.
But y’know? We just realized that she’s wearing separates here. And since we’re not supercrazy about how that top fits her, we think you could correct things quite easily by getting rid of it and wearing something that would pull the whole look together. Of course we don’t quite know what she should be wearing in its place, but we’re thinking and all-white top might actually be better. Your eye won’t be so easily pulled away from her face and she gets to keep the pops of color.
And speaking of faces, she’s got a great one, but we’re not sure it’s being set off. We’re okay with the makeup (although there’s some sort of weird streak or shadow on the right side of her face), but that hair is not helping to elevate the look.
Anyone catching S2 of Masters of Sex? We’re on the fence. T never finished S1 (Lo did) and Lo isn’t sure if he’s enticed enough to pick it up again. It’s a great cast and the show looks good (although not as good as Mad Men did in its earlier seasons), but the two leads don’t really have any chemistry with each other and the whole story hangs on the idea that they do.
