Busy Philipps Promotes “Girls5eva” in St. John

Posted on May 14, 2021


Miss Busy’s got a show that the critics love, so she’s getting…busy doing the hard work of promoting at home. Okay, the word play is terrible there, we admit it. She posed for these backyard shots before heading off (back inside) to do a Watch What Happens Live appearance, so we think you need to take the jokey posing in that context.

Unforch, we’re gonna have to vote no on this one. We don’t particularly love the suit, but if you’re gonna wear something this traditional and potentially “old lady” in tone, unless you’re Kristen Stewart, you should probably just lean into the style rather than fight it. The pink hair’s a kinda fun way to keep yourself from looking too matronly in something like this, but pushing up the sleeves on a suit just makes it look like you don’t know how to wear a suit and the boots are a too-obvious attempt to youthen the look, but they really don’t go. At the very least, if she wanted to go this route, a pair of black or white boots would have been our rec. Green on green with pink hair is just making things harder than they need to be.

Honestly, we’d have told her to keep the boots and scrap the suit. That color is ROUGH. It’s on trend and quite a few celebrity ladies have been working it this season, but as we pointed out recently, all of them were Black or women of color. This really isn’t a hue for most pale gals.






We’ve tried like three times to get into this, but the Tina Fey-style comedy felt… we don’t know, a little dated. The rhythms are exactly the same as Kimmy Schmidt and 30 Rock. Great cast, though. Renee Elise Goldsberry is absolutely hilarious in it and Sara Bareilles plays a great straight woman to her delusional Beyonce-wannabe.
