Three Tidbits for a Thursday

Let's get to the good stuff first. I'm sure everyone has seen the H-H-H-HOT dress Angelina Jolie wore to the Inglorious Bastards Premiere in New York the other day but if you did not, behold:



I cannot get this dress out of my head. It's quite possibly the most sophisticated, sexy, and chic way I have ever seen leather done. And I love that it has that air of "Angelina Past" to it; she really is the proverbial badass, is she not?

Sadly, Rachel McAdams has a much less qualified stylist. Who should be out of a job today or at least lashed with a wet noodle for sending her out to her first starring role in a long time, ie. the premiere for The Time Traveler's Wife.


I'm sorry to report that this white-opaque-shiney-short-ruched-low-cut-shoulder padded nightmare of a dress whose Hollywood Tape is barely holding the dress to her breasts though doing so enough to make it obvious that it's taped because it's draping across her minimal chest is really really bad does nothing for her. Nor do the shoes. Now from the neck up, she looks gorgeous! Absolutely stunning. Unfortunate. Maybe in black and TURNED AROUND and maybe a little longer, we would have had something. Girls with shorter legs take note: wearing shorter dresses does NOT make you look taller. It makes you look like you have a two inch long butt and makes your legs look like Nadja Comanechi. A mid-knee look would have made her look much taller and slimmer. (Not that's she's not slim, mind you!)

Ok, on to the next tidbit as my lunch hour dwindles down to the last minute...we'll call this a bit of a product review. The genius' over at Sexy Hair Concepts have come up with this gem of a product:

At first I was a little scared that the pumpkin smell might be a bit overwhelming or that I might smell like one of those air freshners cab drivers hang from their rearview mirrors. But I was desperate for new product. This schizophrenic weather we've been having has really done a number on my mostly-curly hair making it mostly frizzy, somewhat straight, and then mostly kinky. Good times. NOT. At any rate, being the HUGE halloween fan I am, I figured these bottles of fragranted October heaven might turn out to be a winner. And was I right! I picked up the rehydrating shampoo (yea! no frizz today and it's even raining!), the leave-in conditioner with ginger root (yea! not heavy!) and the styling souflee (which is scary when you open it as it looks like orange cake icing) but so far so good! And I smell like fall which is NEVER a bad thing!!

Ok...back to work!
