Annabelle Wallis, Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella at “The Mummy” New York Fan Event

Posted on June 07, 2017



Is it us or has this poledance been going on forever?


When the stars of a film never seem to get off the promo train, it tends to make us wonder if there’s some concern about the viability of the product. On the other hand, we can’t fault any of them for not putting the effort in. Not only are they still dancing as hard as they can, but they’re still picking out some pretty glam costumes to do so.



Annabelle Wallis in Armani

We want to call this “Basic glam” but the first word has a negative connotation that we don’t mean. “Standard glam,” we suppose. It’s not going to surprise anyone; it’s not anything we all haven’t seen a million times before, but nonetheless, it’s a gold sequined gown and those things never fail to have impact. Maybe it’s a safe choice, but we can’t say she looks bad.


Tom Cruise

Why, Mr. Tom. Look at you all suave and impeccable. We can remember when it was flannel jackets and Timberland boots coming from your corner of the red carpet. We’d have appreciated more color, pattern or contrast in this look, but this is still pretty good, if a little dull.


Sofia Boutella in Rodarte

We may have to start reconsidering our “No Rodarte on the red carpet” stance.

Now before you jump on us, we’re not saying we love this dress. It looks like a bridal gown design that got a little out of control. But it’s not a terrible design, nor does it look horribly out of place in this setting. We realize that’s setting the bar incredibly low, but those were our biggest criticisms of red carpet Rodarte in the past: it never looked like it belonged. More and more lately, we’re seeing somewhat standard red carpet fare coming from that house. They seem to be in the midst of a strategy.


Bottom line: no one here is winning any style awards but everyone here is still bringing their A game to the poledance. Respect all around.
