1. Jennifer Aniston displayed why she is on the suckbag list. A poorly-hemmed dark plum (not much of a departure from black, really) borefest with ugly shoes for a movie premiere followed by  – surprise! – a black cocktail dress and black sandals for Jimmy Fallon. And exactly the same damn hair and makeup. I’m not even going to bother posting pics. Total yawn.

2. This is someone called Crystal Reed wearing the shorter, strapped version of that Carolina Herrera that Lucy Liu wore to the Golden Globes. I loved it on Lucy, kinda bored with Crystal’s styling here, but mostly I wish someone would do this dress justice by pairing it with red. They really got it right in that lookbook pic, with the red lips and shoes.

3. Diane Kruger. Mary Katrantzou. LOVE.

4. The planet is being taken over by floral-on-black, non?

michael kors kills me on project runway. i love when he says snarky shit like “oh, it’s a little DTM” (dyed-to-match) or “mm, yeah, the satin bolero is kind of MOB” (mother-of-the-bride). he is the king of bitchy acronyms. and i like that his designs are pretty normal. wearable. i mean, i don’t think being all avant garde and concept-y is a bad thing, but if everyone was all avant garde and concept-y all the time, how annoying would that be? michael kors makes pretty clothes that you can actually wear in real life. especially on vacation. which is nice. i like the icy blue, silver and cut-outs from his spring 2010 show. i feel like it’s easy for cut-outs to look either cheap or very “been done a million times before”, but, to me, these ones look elegant and fresh.

you brogue, girl. slouchy jeans, white tank, wingtips. or “brogues”, for the pond-hoppers. did you know? “brogueing”, the cool hole-punching that makes patterns in the shoe seams, comes from the boglands of Scotland and Ireland where lads were always stepping in bogs and needed shoes with good drainage. truth.
