Love It or Leave It: Katherine Heigl Attends the UK Premiere of Killers

Though, in my opinion, with no Ashton Kutcher in tow, (I heard he was grounded and couldn’t leave the house ’til he lost fifteen pounds) the premiere kind of fell flat. You know, unlike Heigl’s Aqua Net hair.

I’m not a Katherine Heigl fan, nor have I ever been, but I have to admit that she looks absolutely, positively stunning in all of these photos. Even the hair, which looks like it’s been channeled from beyond the grave of the deceased Julia Sugarbaker, suits her well in these photos.

My final opinion? She looks fabulously gorgeous and there’s no taking that away from her this time.

This time.

R.I.P. Dixie Carter

Dixie Carter passed away yesterday in Los Angeles at the age of 70. Dixie, who was best known for her role as the strong, smart and sassy Julia Sugarbaker on Designing Women, was survived by her husband and two daughters.

The scene above from Designing Women, which is arguably the best moment from the entire series, is the quintessential example of what a fierce role model Dixie’s most famous character was. While Dixie was rather conservative in her private life, the character of Julia Sugarbaker was a huge influence on me (and many women I know) when I was growing up. She was truly, with the exception of maybe Roseanne and Murphy Brown, one of the only women I saw making intelligent commentary on TV when I was a kid and because of that I’ve always been quite fond of her.

You’ll be missed, Dixie.
