RED CARPET SHOWDOWN OF THE WEEK: Tessa Thompson vs. Lucy Liu

Posted on June 14, 2019

It’s the BATTLE OF THE BIG OBNOXIOUS DRESSES, darlings! Are you ready for all this aggressive poofery? And by that we mean us, of course. The aggressive poofs.



Lo’s Pick: Tessa Thompson in Rodarte at the “Men in Black: International” New York City Premiere

Lo’s Defense: This is fabulous, funny, over-the-top, pure sci-fi glamour with a drag-queen feel to it. She really understands that celebrity promotional work begs for eye-popping looks worth discussing and sharing. And she really knows how to pose and work a garment that most would find totally overwhelming.



T’s Pick: Lucy Liu in Christian Siriano at the Tony Awards

T’s Defense: This is is clearly not going to win any design awards, but it doesn’t have to. It’s gorgeously bold and high-impact; the kind of dress everyone wanted to get a look at all night and wanted to talk about the next day. The color looks amazing on her and the green accessories – especially those killer earrings – really elevate it to a level that makes it unforgettable. Just stunning.


Which big poofy dress is it gonna be, darlings? The purple princess or the prom queen from outer space?
