Oscars 2017 IN or OUT: Sarah Paulson in Ronald van der Kemp at the Vanity Fair Party

Posted on February 28, 2017

As per the usual with these posts, we can’t make up our minds about this one so we’re just gonna pass the buck to you. If you write a particularly bitchy response, maybe Sarah will mention you to the New York Times.

Anyway, drink it in, dolls:


Dramatic as hell, right?

And we suppose she’s the right lady to work a dress with this particular brand of boldly colored retro drama. Her hair looks great with this kind of dress. Here endeth the positive points.

The negatives aren’t necessarily dealbreakers.  First, this just looks too damn heavy to us. The combination of the velvet, high neckline and full-length sleeves with puffed shoulders and ruching – that’s a LOT. Hell, a full-length yellow velvet gown is a lot, even without all that stuff. Add a graphic element that makes you look literally off balance and it starts becoming really questionable to us. Dramatic, yes. But maybe not for the best reasons.

But if there’s a lady who can rock this look, it’s probably her and her alone. You make the call, darlings. We’re ping-ponging back and forth on this one.
