Karen Gillan is a Velvet Bumblebee at the “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” LA Premiere

Posted on April 20, 2017

“Velvet Bumblebee.” Drag name or band name? You make the call.

Y’know, it occurs to us just now that Miss Karen really needs to be walking the world’s red carpets more often. She’s cute, she’s charming, and she doesn’t mind posing for pictures. But best of all…


She ALWAYS gives us something to talk about, bless her heart.

Oh, girl. As much as we love you for really going there, this is just a weensy bit overdone for us. The yellow and black look surprisingly great on her. And we might even have gone for the basic “dress over pants” idea except for a couple of things. First, the textiles are leather and velvet, which are pretty damn tough to pull off at these proportions. Second, both the dress/top and the pants are overdesigned in that Monse sort of way. One of them needed to be edited. To our eyes, the leather cargo pants should be plain leather skinny pants – without any goofiness down at the hem. And finally, as fierce as those shoes are, they show a sort of Barbie-like approach to matching. It’s just a bit too costume-y to our eyes. And the head styling does nothing at all for it.

Still, she went there. Respect.
