Love It Or Leave It: Kathy Griffin’s Pre-Emmy Dress
We’re just going to go ahead and admit this: We think Kathy Griffin is a really funny lady. We love her, we love her show, we love her mom. We once even drove two hours and shelled out $60 to sit in the nosebleeds at one of her comedy acts. And when she came on stage to raucous applause and said, “Welcome to an evening of swearing and negativity,” we knew she’d be amazing. And she was.
But when she’s onstage, she generally limits herself to jet black basics, and we have no choice but to focus on her flame red hair and her spirited evisceration of the celebrity elite.
So it came much to our chagrin when photos of her in a weirdly shiny purple-gray dress with a weird neckline and a weird, stylized flower/button/circle embellishment popped up on our photo feed this morning. There’s nothing wrong with the dress, per se. We’ll even admit to having a little difficulty articulating why we think the dress is so, well, weird. But the cold hard math of the matter is that we’ve seen her do better, and we kinda wanna know what you think about it.
