“Masters of Sex” star Lizzy Caplan attends the Los Angeles premiere of IFC Films ‘Sleeping with Other People’ presented by Dark Horse Wine in Los Angeles, California.
NOUS ADORONS, darlings. Huzzah, Lizzie. Huzzah, we say. Lorenzo literally clapped and said “Yay!” when he saw this dress.
We love it because it’s bold, of course, and because it’s very, very hard to convince most celebrities to be bold on the red carpet because the potential blowback can be upsetting when they attempt it. After all, no celebrity wants her picture next to “WHAT WAS SHE THINKING?!?” in 48 pt. font on some tabloid cover. Or bitchy web site, possibly run by very bitter people. The point is, there’s a reason so many ladystars default to simple, neutral toned cocktail dresses nine times out of ten. It takes some brass ovaries to step out in front of a wall of cameras wearing something like this.
And the shame of it is, even if she were to get universal praise for this outfit now, it’s one of those looks that probably won’t age well down the line, which means you can expect people to be pointing at these exact pictures in 2025 and laughing at the choice. To hell with that. This is gorgeous and colorful and most important of all (to us, anyway) unique. You WERQ that crazy seed packet dress, girl.
