We couldn’t quite bring ourselves to get into the much-lauded Girls5Eva but the show should thank its lucky stars for having Busy Philipps in the cast. She’s a funny, focus-pulling bright spot with one of the better, fresher takes on the ditzy blonde archetypes we’ve seen in a long time AND she’s a total powerhouse when it comes to dressing up loudly and promoting the hell out of a project.
To be fair, we don’t think she intends to be focus-pulling and head-turning for cynical reasons. That’s literally her preferred style.
If we had to pin down her style persona, it would be something like “Boho Socialite with Wealthy Artist Grandparents.” Even when the choices are a bit much – and here would definitely be an example of that – she manages to somehow charm us into liking the look more than we should. We have issues with the weight of the textile, the cut of the suit and the color story here and yet we smile when we look at her working the hell out of all of it.

We hate to admit how charmed we are by this one simply because it’s D&G but damn if they don’t know how to sell a promotional outfit to a celebrity. This is really fun, extremely photogenic and really well styled. Her hair and makeup are perfect and we love the shoes. With almost anyone else we’d probably find the posing to be a bit much, but “a bit much” is kind of her brand. We are charmed.
