Lea Michele really needs to read my posts more often. If she had, maybe she’d be as style savvy as you all are. By now, my faithful little followers, I’ve educated you as to the appropriate attire for various events including galas (ultra fancy), garden parties (flirty dresses), movie premieres (statement-making styles) and music festivals (anything hideous seems to be de rigeur). But what about the strange soirees known as “upfronts”? An upfront is when a network like Fox or NBC gathers together all of its brightest stars and up-and-coming actors to mill around with press and advertisers to chat about their shows. It’s not a boozy, dimly-lit event–more like a daytime business meeting with a crudite buffet and a few mimosas.
My point is: you wear something cute, chic but not too scandalous. It’s morning for goodness sakes. Clearly, Lea did not get the memo, since she turned up to the Fox Upfronts like this…
You know darlings, it’s not that I hate her dress or anything about this look–her Blumarine mini is flattering, sexy and perfectly on trend for spring’s bold palette. It would be fab for an awards show (a la J.Lo’s plunging Versace dress of lore) or a Cannes Film Fest after party.
But I’ll be upfront (tee hee!): I hate how hard she’s trying to look sexy. The pose, the face, the over-abundance of skin at 10am–the whole thing just seems to obvious and desperate. We get it Lea, you’re keen to leave goody-goody Rachel Berry behind and be taken seriously as a pop star. I for one will never see you as such, so please put on a cardigan and sit down.
Although, I know you dear readers just love all things Lea Michele, so what’s your take on her look? Cute, yes, but is it approps for such a stuffy corporate event?
