“The Politician” New York Premiere Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on September 27, 2019

Kittens, a bunch of stars wore an alarmingly wide range of styles (from dull to hilarious) and stood in front of this year’s least flattering backdrop to promote a show we kind of hated, resulting in a series of pictures that have the distinct whiff of “hostage situation” in some of them. Or maybe we’re reading too much into it. Also: you really need to prepare yourselves for January Jones. We’re just saying.





Ben Platt in Salvatore Ferragamo

We guess we should applaud the choice of a boldly colored suit, but the cut is so awful. It does nothing for him.




Bette Midler

Phoning it in. We wouldn’t expect some grand diva turn, but she looks like she’s at a benefit luncheon.




Gwyneth Paltrow in GLabel

Kind of unexpected to see her in something this dramatic and boldly colored. The dress is a sheet, but the necklace does a lot to help the look.




January Jones in Rodarte


Said with the utmost love and respect. Look at her face in that last shot. This is as deliberate as it gets.



Jessica Lange in Gabriela Hearst

Another phoned-in effort. She looks presentable of course, but given the completely over-the-top nature of this show, not to mention her character, this seems too restrained.




Judith Light in Badgley Mischka

Trust your girl here to bring some drama and glamour to the proceedings.




Julia Schlaepfer in Paolo Sebastian





Lucy Boynton in Dior Couture

We don’t know. Kinda thinking the broken-doll thing is beyond played out at this point. She kept it fresh for a while but it’s becoming too expected, we think. And that dress is honestly kind of ugly.




Zoey Deutch in Rodarte

A Merry Christmas and Lingerie New Year to you too, Miss Zoey. Also: there’s something in your hair.
