More from the Inbox.

M: Can we discuss?

Flaw. LESS.

A: Um, I think her pants need hemming.

M: HMPH. Do you know how exciting it is to wear pants that are just a little too long when you're a giant. VERY.

But really, let's look closer. The (sheer-ish?) shirt, the lipstick, the eyeliner, the hair. Perfect.

I still want to be Michelle Williams (though we can all agree to ignore this, right:

But, I want to be Cate Blanchett in 10 years. And maybe Helen Mirren after that. Apparently I want to be blonde.

A: The super-bright lipstick is still taking a bit of getting used to but she's definitely pulling it off. Also, her pants are TOO LONG. But she's gloriously pretty, yeah.

Michelle's dress is...not.

And, I should point out that Cate is only three years older than me so I can be her NOW. HAHA.

M: Why you gotta go crushing my dreams?

A: It's what I do. Sorry. I didn't take Helen Mirren away from you?

M: I can't even talk to you any more.

A: Well, but why do you get to be all the prettiest ladies? It's like you called John Taylor before I even showed up. SO NOT FAIR.


A: That's what he told you?


A: Dude, you can have him. I was just MAKING A POINT.

M: Sniff.

A: Fine, you can have Cate Blanchett.  BUT I GET MIRREN.

M: Whatever. You know Cate Blanchett has an aging portrait in the attic and will be smoking hot until she dies.


  1. I guess I'm the only person in the world who liked Michelle Williams' dress. It's whimsical! Young! It has flowers on it! (of course this is coming from the woman whose own mother used to tease her about her love of "Victorian wallpaper prints")

    Okay, y'all can have Blanchett and Mirren, but I get to be Michelle Pfeiffer and then Judi Dench.

  2. I think my big issue with it is that it's the exact same color as her skin. She wears color so beautifully that I have no idea why she'd chose to wear a non-color. Also, the flowers. I just can't.

  3. Hey, I'm older than y'all. I'm stealing Helen Mirren. It's all I've got.

  4. These conversation posts crack me up!
    Cate Blanchette... omg that woman can do no wrong and seriously, Mirren!? I can only dream my tatas will hold up like that when I get to be her age!

  5. Cate Blanchett is a Goddess. She'll never die, just go on being beautiful and a bad ass forever. But if she wanted to play Dorian Gray in a movie, I would definitely watch it.

  6. There's clearly something wrong with me, since I looked at that first picture and eagerly checked to see what snarky thing you all were going to say about such an unattractive look. I thought -- well, I still think the lipstick is beyond hideous with her coloring and ... well, seriously weren't you two alive for "Annie Hall?"

    Ok, ok ... crawling back into my fashion-backward cubbiehole now ...

    Adrien, you clearly have more work to do on me!

  7. Mary, you're allowed to disagree with us, you know. And yes, I was alive for Annie Hall.

    I think she looks great aside from the too-long pants. The bright lipstick is kind of a trend right now, but I think she's pulling it off just fine. It brightens up her whole face.
