Rachel McAdams at a fan screening, to celebrate the release of Marvel Studio’s “Doctor Strange” at the Odeon Leicester Square, in London, United Kingdom.
As much as we love the backdrop for this event, we almost feel bad for Rachel. If Tilda Swinton has to struggle to keep the spotlight on her, all the sequin-birds in the world aren’t going to help poor Miss Rachel stand out much.
Why, it was so distracting it actually took us several minutes to notice her Barbie crotch and ass semi-flashing. Which in this case only helped the look the longer it could be camouflaged.
We appreciate that she went for something whimsical and almost mystical for a premiere like this one. Both the film and the fact that Tilda Swinton is standing a few feet away call for an over-the-top approach. But the lack of a decent lining obscures quite a bit of the magical whimsy in favor of Kardashian-style sexiness, which is a damn shame. Miss Rachel should know better than to fall into that trap and the dress could’ve been much more interesting without the distractions. Imagine a black semi-sheer lining and how much more dramatic this could have been.
