Meryl Streep introduces the concept of “Casual Couture” at the Costume Designers Guild Awards

Posted on February 22, 2017

 

“Casual Couture,” darlings. Also known as …

“Publicly Wearing a Snuggie That Costs as Much as a Used Car.”

 

We know we’re not going to get far with critiquing this because the combination of bright colors, comfy clothing and Mary Louise herself is a hard thing to rail against. It’s like slapping Santa Claus or something. Even so, the oath we swore when they allowed us into the Secret Guild of Bitchy Fashion Bloggers compels us to say that we don’t love this at all. If ever we saw an FMO dress, this would be the one. And even then, the model only barely manages to make it seem dramatic or give it any shape. You’re gonna need some pretty dramatic styling to elevate this one above loungewear, but Aunt Meryl’s readers and sloppy up do only contribute to the “pitchers of margaritas and a game of Bridge” vibe to the ensemble.

And now that we’ve placed the image of a game of Bridge with a tipsy Meryl Streep in a muumuu in your heads, there’s simply no way anyone’s going to agree with us on this one.
