Miss Michelle, you really have posed a bit of a conundrum for us this morning. After all, everyone’s talking about your barn-burner of an acceptance speech, which was far less about accepting your award and almost entirely turned over to a rousing talk about a woman’s right to choose and why women should band together to protect it. Whether you think venues like the Golden Globes are the right place for such topics, it was hard to deny how brave she was and how eloquently expressed her points were. All of which is why it’s so hard for us to shift toward the shallow end of the pool (our natural habitat) to note how, well…
How awful her look is.
We will grant that our utter loathing of that sherbet orange color is a matter of taste. To our minds an inarguable matter of taste, but still. We can accept if someone likes the color story here. The pop of blue certainly helps. Not enough, though. And that odd patch of white behind the flower detail makes it look like she’s wearing either a tank top or an especially sturdy bra. But our main issue is with the shape and style of this thing. It’s mumsy and frumpy. It obscures most of her shape by enveloping it in yards and yards of unfabulous fabric and the combination of bows and an asymmetrical neckline make it look like a kind of ugly sheet has been tied around her.
The Quaker Oats hair is deeply unfortunate but if she’s trying to grow out her signature pixie cut, we have to give a gal some leeway when she hits that stage of hair growth known as “I can’t do a fucking thing with this.” Ride it out, girl. Buy a couple more hats. Look into turbans for the red carpet.
