Two fabulous actresses, two separate events in locations across the globe from each other. And yet, we found a lesson that is very important, if you’re willing to learn, grasshopper. It’s the art of wearing red, which can be a tricky little minx because you can go from red hot to fizzled spark in one step.
Take Nicole Kidman, for example. She’s looking so pleased to be at the 2011 BMI Country Awards held yesterday in Nashville. From the look on her face, you can tell she thinks she’s nailed this Stella McCartney dress. Nicole thought that throwing in some white detailing on what would’ve been a passable crimson dress was the way to go. WRONG. This dress is like an optical illusion. We literally got cross-eyed staring at it and it also brought back longgone memories of geometry lessons with our old teacher Mr.Sapru (who used to terrify us.) Nicole, please. Do red. Plain red. None of this jazzy Christmas wrapping paper stuff.
On the right, we have Angeline Jolie, at the premiere of Moneyball in Japan. We feel like the woman at the back who got photobombed — jaws dropped and in awe. Angie knows how to pull out the stops when she feels like it. And taking this red, strappy L’Wren Scott dress and her tomato lips into consideration, she felt like it. Angie haterz can kvetch all they want, but we all know that this woman could stop an asteroid in its tracks if she wanted to (and if the good folk of NASA had thought of it.)
So there you have it folks. The next time you think red, pick a side.
