Apologies for not posting yesterday, in case anyone noticed. I was a touch under-the-weather with... I don't know what. I was freezing and tired exhausted. Today, that seems to have resolved, thankfully! How was your weekend and Monday? Otherwise, ours was pretty good.
Sunday was the Emmy's. I'm sure that didn't escape your notice, even if you didn't watch. I didn't either, by the way, so if you skipped it you're in good company. I just can't stand to listen to my dear hubby complain about how long the Red Carpet stuff takes. And I don't ever have the patience to watch awards ceremonies unfold. They remind me too much of sitting in a hot auditorium listening to graduation ceremonies!
Anyway, as is my usual habit, I skipped them. Instead, I perused the gossip and fashion websites yesterday via phone, since I never even turned on the computer yesterday. That's how you know a blogger is sick, by the way. ;)
Only one outfit really garnered my notice. Sure, some folks looked great (Lea Michele- WOOT!) and others bombed (Christina Hendricks and January Jones), but only one moved me enough to comment. Let's play a tiny little math game to find out which one, shall we?
It's time for some Emmy'S Math!
As far as I'm concerned, Rita Wilson's only good choice was showing up with hubby Tom Hanks.
I think it's clear to all what's wrong with the look, so there's no need for me to mention how the white shift and odd braiding/belt makes Rita look wider than she is. How wearing an open-weave over-dress (?) with chunky prisms hanging on it might not have been a great choice. You plainly see that the overall look makes this normally well-appointed woman appear sloppy, confused, and much older than she is. Nor do I have to point out that the severely pulled back hair doesn't do her favors or that the odd loop-de-loop in the back has nothing to do with anything. You can already tell that her eye makeup is a bit too icy, and I'm sure that I'm not the only one who figures that close-up this look didn't do her any favors in the accenting-the-wrinkles arena. And then there's the shoes. Good god... those shoes...
It doesn' help that the Google search term "tacky chandelier" brings up pictures of shoes just like this starting on page four.
Please, Rita, fire your stylist. A blind monkey could have done better. Didn't you have "veto" priveleges? Next time, please use them. You're a beautiful mature woman, but this look didn't showcase it at all. I need you to do better.
