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.
