Bad. Bad, bad, bad. What’s bad? This dress is bad. Horrible-bad. The only thing that might be worse (wait … let me consider that … no, not worse) is the fact that I had to open up a new Google browser and type in ‘Who the hell is Busy Phillips’, because other than finding out from our photo agency that she’s “friend of Michelle Williams,” I couldn’t place this chick to save my life. According to Wiki:
Elizabeth Jean Philipps (born June 25, 1979), known professionally as Busy Philipps, is an American film actress, perhaps best known for her supporting roles on the television series Freaks and Geeks and Dawson’s Creek. She has also performed significant roles in films like The Smokers (2000), as Karen Carter, the drama film Home Room (2002) as Alicia Browning, she appeared in White Chicks (2004), played a supporting role in Made of Honor (2008) and appeared in He’s Just Not That Into You (2009), starring Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson and Drew Barrymore. Currently, she plays Laurie Keller in the television series Cougar Town for which she won a Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Critic’s Choice Television Award in 2011.
So, no one. OK? Cougar Town? Really? All that wasted Googling time for nothing. She really is an old friend of Michelle Williams. We’ll leave it at that, unless there are some hardcore YEAH Busy Phillips! fans out there, and in that case, you have my sincerest apologies.
This dress, though, there’s no apologizing for. It looks like something I might wear to bed. Or it would be, if it didn’t look so damned scratchy and uncomfortable. Definitely the worst, worst look of the night. The only redeeming factor? Girl looks good in that shade of blue. Best I can say.
Other dishonorable mentions of the evening include Kristen Wiig, who thought it’d be a super rad idea to bring back the choker of the 90s (don’t hate and pretend you weren’t a Claire’s or Afterthoughts frequenter back then) and pair it with a halter dress; Rose Byrne who looks a bit like a little kid playing dress-up in Joan Rivers’ closet (and those bangs! No!); Zoe Saldana who may or may not be wearing boyfriend Bradley Cooper’s “wife-beater” underneath her sheath dress; and Ashlee Simpson who is on this list mostly because I can’t stand her, but also because she’s got a stupid, jacked-up looking face that was probably paid for by the money that was supposed to go to her kid’s college fund, which came from her ex-husband in the form of child support. Also, the dress is FUG FUG FUG GREASY HAIR MCNASTY.
Who takes the worst?
