St. Paul Pioneer Press photographer Chris Polydoroff took a lot of fantastic photos at the Beyonce concert last night, but none quiet as, shall we say, spellbinding as this one, captured outside the Target Center.
Where, oh where to begin?
How about with applause for confidence. These ladies tried. They wanted to show their sexy. They showed that…and a few too many other things.
Hold the giggles. There's a perfectly reasonable explanation for this situation. Stylists tell us again and again, on every cable channel, that hiding our curves only makes us look bigger.
This is a fashion lesson taken too literally. Clothes should fit. Yes, not too big. But not too small either. Leave a little something to the imagination. Times two.
When the fashion police lambasted Renee Zellweger’s odd see-through dress over corset at the Golden Globes, her co-star Siobhan Fallon from “New in Town” (out on Friday) called and said “The cream rises to the top.” Zellweger’s reply: “I love you.”
“It’s got to hurt her feelings,” said Fallon, who plays a New Ulm, Minn. secretary in the upcoming release. Fallon, who remains fairly anonymous despite her long list of film and TV credits, was able to shop with me at Mall of America this evening.
She’s a great reminder that not everyone in Hollywood is consumed by designer fashions ("I've got this black dress that I wear to a lot of things," she says). She caught just a few moments of the SAG awards in her Minneapolis hotel room Sunday night and says she thought they all looked good – especially her friend Tina Fey, who is not exactly a fashion critic's favorite for her safe, dark dress choices. “She’s a New Yorker,” Fallon says. “Black is what we wear.”
Find out what Fallon wears, and where she shops in my “Shopping With…” column Sunday, Feb. 1 in the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
