“Masters of Sex” actress Lizzy Caplan attends the CBS, CW, Showtime Summer TCA Party at Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, California.
We woke up this morning and were faced with an endless array of celebrity ladies in plain black or white cocktail dresses. Not in our living room or anything like that. Our lives are not that interesting. No, when we were perusing the photo agencies for material to get y’all through your day, we found nothing but church clothes as far as the eye could see. And kittens, to paraphrase a great saying of our day, there isn’t anyone who really has any time for that.
So BIG THANKS to Miss Lizzie here, for not going the safe route:
Is it pretty in a conventional sense? Newp. Does it make sense to be wearing velvet in August? Newp. Are the shoes perhaps a bit too much to ask of one pair of eyes, considering how much is going on above them? Yep.
But is it fierce? Yeah, we’re gonna have to give it that.
It looks a bit too much like a Star Trek background character’s costume from certain angles, but we’ll tell you what: It is – BY FAR – the most interesting celebrity poledancing look we’ve seen in a while. “Interesting” without being a disaster, we should say, because we’ve had plenty of those lately.
But we have to say, for such a dramatic dress, the head styling’s not really up to its level.
