"The flip, winky gender-bending outfit is maybe not the one you ought to be wearing when you're posing in front of a big poster of the Twin Towers."

I don't expect any high-paid heifer to be wearing a black sack with a little US flag tucked into her to for any event connected to 9/11. She has nice you-know-what and someone needs to cut and paste a suckling infant onto her chest and all will be forgiven. Her almost exposed breasts are the phoenix rising, life goes on. That open tie suggests she has been feeding a baby, don't it? Life goes on.

Black and grey utlities were the uniform of the day.

Much ado about nothing.

Look, while taste boundaries exist - men showing up in evening gowns for an extreme example - I hardly think this particular ensemble crosses any line of offense. I mean, all she's doing here is pulling a Diane Keaton cum George Clooney. There's hardly anything offensive in that. It's not like she's wearing a "Loose Change 9/11" t-shirt. That would be completely over the line. But a mantux? Hardly.

Oh, please. Its a movie premier, not a funeral. And I think its actually a pretty interesting and tasteful outfit. Hardly offensive.

Strangely enough, her undone tie looks a little like the twin towers going up in smoke.

OK, I can't resist... "Ciao, bella-bello!"

Maybe they could have forgone the glittering self-congratulatory photo-op premiere in the first place? Or, even better, forgone the whole slightly unseemly project.

I think it's modest...and kind of cute!

The ladies of Go Fug Yourself know that of which they speak.

And I don't think anything that reveals where side of the breast changes to the lower curve can be called "modest."

winkin', blinkin', and nod!

But, there's a reason you call it a mantux, Tibore. And unless there's something about Maria Bello we don't know, its a flip, winky gender-bending outfit.

I will, however, say that the two main rules put out by the girls of GFY are followed here - 1.) it fits, 2.) it covers her bits.

The real question is, What would Kevin Barrett wear to the "World Trade Center" premiere? My vote: a mock turtleneck.

Well I usually avoid commenting on women;s fashions at all costs unless it's to take shots at Robin Givens, but the gals at FGY were nicer to Ms Bello than to Tara Reid:


Alas, though, Tara's problems don't stop with her wan mane. Poor little Nips Akimbo, Child of Chestal Tragedy, has chosen yet another shirt that not only emphasizes the mesmerizingly shameful work of her plastic surgeon -- seriously, when he put in her implants, did he use ACTUAL sandbags? -- but which is also just sort of inexplicable. I'm not sure what those shoulder flaps are, but the way they drape on her shoulders looks like the shirt is pressing down on her, giving her a weird slouchy look that only enhances the fact that her expensive mounds of hell are already flying south for the winter.

Those fugging bitches are fugging funny!

Tibore said...

Oh, I think the something we "don't know" about Maria Bello is nothing more than that she occasionally listens to the wrong salespeople at the designer outfits store. Most of her other outfits? VaVOOOM, Woo-HOO, (*Whistles*)!

As far as it's appropriateness for a somber movie premiere? Well... guess that's a matter for personal taste (or snark, which the Fug twins have mastered, transcended even). Again, in my mind, crossing the line would take real distasteful action, like a Bin Laden t-shirt or some equivalent obscenity. Although, reading what the GFY duo thinks - even when I disagree - is totally worth it, just for the entertainment value.

Speaking of the Fug twins (Damn! Heather's a dead ringer for Joan Collins! ;) ...), the fact that they're able to consistently generate that level of, er... commentary on fashion is incredible. I haven't laughed so hard in forever. Anyone read any of the other star reviews? Jeeeeeeeezus... I bustued a gut laughing.

"Father, father! Fraulein Maria's come back from the Abbey!"

"She looks like Little Ho Peep"

"(Bjork's) shawl looks more like somebody in the retouching department made a small error with the square brush tool." (No, really, you've got to see what they're talking about).

What a fun site!

LOL Tibore, yes - they are the best. I stop by every day and they always make me laugh.
