My favorite dress at the Golden Globes on Sunday was Diane Kruger’s ombre pink Christian Lacroix.
Of course, I’m fond of ombre pink.
When I first wore my gown, I excitedly emailed a photo to a friend who snarkily said, “You look beautiful in anything, of course, but that dress is a bit bridesmaid-y.” My reply was, “That would have to be one stupid bride.”
Speaking of bridesmaids, the expression, “Often a bridesmaid, never a bride,” originated in ads for Listerine mouthwash in the 1930s.
The saying that’s more relevant to my dress-related email exchange is “With friends like this, who needs enemies?” As for Diane, I saw four unattractive fashion police criticizing her dress on TV yesterday. I don’t have a saying to console her, but maybe my favorite Katt Williams quote will suffice: “What do you think a hater’s job is? To fucking hate. So let them motherfuckers do their goddamn job!”
UPDATED TO ADD: No matter what Katt says, it’s more fun to feel the love than the hate, so thanks to luscious blogger Liz of It’s Unbeweavable! for interviewing me. Check me out here.

the zhang toi dress is pretty snazzy!
Jennifer Garner’s dress was my favourite 🙂
btw, was your cleopatra necklace worn by “Angie Bolen” on Desperate Housewives (Season 6, Episode 13), or was it just one very very similar to it?
Audrey Allure says
such a stunning dress!

Ombre pink is so unusual and, to my eye, attractive! Fie on the fashion police!

Re Listerine: As in you would never be a bride as you had bad breath? LOL!!
You look like you should be working the red carpet with Diane x
The Little Fashion Treasury says
Ooooh woooow, Wendy!!
Diane wore such a dreamticket and so is also your beautiful dress. The colors are too beautiful!!!
You look great in that gown! I love it and love the color on you! I thought Diane Kruger looked great as well, but I never agree with the Fashion Police anyway.
this is going to sound odd but your back was made to be shown!
This reminds me I need to take a peek at the Golden Globes clothes. Agreed–Diane looks amazing.

i liked diane’s dress but i think her hairstyle was all wrong. she should have put up her hair, like you did. what a shame. her hair just ruined it for me!
LOL, Katt Williams is hilarious. Sexy back you have there. =)
I want a dress with a bouquet of roses on my bottom!
And very interesting fact regarding the Listerine advert. Your blog is always so educational, Wendy!
