The humdrum fashion at Sunday’s Golden Globes — everyone wore red! silver! cut-out white gowns! — caused me to pay more and more attention to a Progresso Light commercial I kept seeing that night. In it, a woman is pleasantly surprised by the rich taste of her low-calorie soup. She’s watching her diet because she needs to fit into a hideous green bridesmaid dress.
Over the course of the evening, this dress started looking really good to me compared to the unremarkable red carpet. I tweeted Progresso.
Progresso, please send me this dress and and a 2016 Golden Globes ticket so that when Ryan Seacrest asks me, “Who are you wearing?” I can answer “Soup!”
You crack me up. That doesn’t look like a soup dress — more like a side salad. Maybe some bibb lettuce with a bit of radicchio.
And here I thought you were talking about a Warhol soup can dress. That would be cool, too.
Aw, those vintage paper ones that cost a zillion dollars! Those are so cool.
Bwa-ha-ha! Let’s raise our cups of soup to originality.
Decrease the ruffle-age and I’m all about it. That giant purple-ish bow is AMAZING! You need to wear the dress, Golden Globe tickets or not!
I can take some of those ruffles off and make them into a flamenco shirt for you 😛
I had one of those in my youth! One of the midriff ones during the late 80s/ early 90s. I loved that shirt.

And when you’re done with the dress, it’s mine! I would totally wear that! I think it’s stunning, and miles more interesting than the long tall case of the blands that the Globes had.
The more boring dresses I saw the more I liked the soup dress!
