Sandra Bullock in Zuhair Murad at the “Ocean’s 8” London Premiere

Posted on June 14, 2018

Here’s a fashion-based ponderable for you to … ponder: Given Miss Sandy’s love of wide-legged jumpsuits on this promo tour, and given how rarely that love has actually paid off for her, does it matter if she wears one with legs so wide that it looks like a skirt?

A question for the ages. Although we might add that you do risk a situation where everyone’s staring at your crotch to try and figure out if you’re wearing pants or not.

With the pondering out of the way, we can say that this might have really worked for us if that neckline wasn’t so wide. It really throws the balance off. But we would be remiss in our red carpet policing duties if we didn’t praise her for zhuzhing up the hair and adding some color and pattern to her style; two things it seemed impossible for her to try as recently as a year ago. She’d been so locked into the Oscars-campaigning look of metallic sheaths and pin-straight hair for so long that we feared she’d Gwyneth’d on us.

It’s a verb now. It means stubbornly sticking with a look decades after you should’ve retired it. You know we’re right.
