Fashion police moving violation #235: When glitter and pastel attack

Photo care of Getty Images and a really bad Mariah Carey acid trip.

So I'm not going to pretend that I watched the Golden Globes - I was way too busy eating french fries and plotting world takeover on the couch. But this little piece of butterfly beauty has been making the rounds and I'm sure I don't have to say why.

I am, quite frankly, a stan of Sidibe. Yes, her size might, in certain circles, qualify her for statehood. And yes, the wig situation will likely be the topic of an emergency United Nations meeting in the near future. Annnnd yes, each of her wrists is equivalant in circumferance to a small pineapple.

But why dwell on the obvious. She's effin HILARIOUS and I would love to hang out with her.

And despite everybody's thoughts to the contrary, I see where she was going with this dress.

Sure, right now it just looks like a star spangled mumu. But with the addition of a cape, sash and wand, it's perfect. What else would you have the tooth fairy rock after all?

You better get those molars girl!


  1. this is funny, but in a way that makes me feel guilty, b/c it's a cruel sort of humour. i don't think Sidibe would laugh--perhaps in a forced ownership sort of way, but i'm certain she'd still weep a little inside.

    but what the hell, it's america, right? dis is what we dooo

  2. Meh - I disagree. I think Sidibe's in total ownership of her image. She's big, she's dark in a word that doesn't celebrate it, and she's cultivated an amazing "dont give a damn."

    Now is it a front? Perhaps. I like to think not though. I still want to hang out with her.

  3. That dress would be terrible on anyone. And she needs to fire her stylist.
