Carrie Fisher and her dog Gary Fisher attend the European Premiere of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at the Leicester Square in London, England.
Oh, Carrie. We expected no less from you.
Look, we get it. She didn’t come from a time in Hollywood where she was expected to do this sort of thing. And she probably never expected to be asked to do this sort of thing on this level at her age. And of course, she’s never been what one would call a fashionista. We get that this is not her bag. But man, do we find ourselves wishing she’d hired a couple of drag queens to help her with her presentation skills. Have fun with the red carpet, of course, but this comes off less “fun” and more “uncomfortable and clowning around to cover for it.” Just strike a simple pose and smile, dear. It’ll be over eventually.
The outfit’s not great, but again, we really weren’t expecting drop dead chic or high fashion looks coming from her. She looks presentable and despite her vamping, the outfit looks comfortable for her. There is no reason, however, to be walking out on a red carpet with your glasses on your head like you’re in the middle of doing a crossword puzzle.
It’s helped tremendously by one very well-deployed accessory, though:
“I don’t know what mommy’s doing right now but maybe something good to eat will fall off her.”
