Kristen Wiig’s nude dress-with-black choker look at this year’s Golden Globes was largely panned, but it turns out there was a method to her madness.
Wiig opens up to Vogue about her styling inspiration in their March issue:
The Saturday after she squeezes the Vogue shoot into her workweek, she will get home from the show at 2:00 a.m. to be picked up at 4:00 for a 6:00 a.m. flight to L.A., where she will immediately go into hair and makeup to appear at the Golden Globes, where she has been nominated as Best Actress in a Comedy for Bridesmaids. “I’m going to need a lot of under-eye work,” she deadpans. “Concealer.”
…As for the Globes, she hasn’t decided what to wear yet. “I’m going for forties-sexy with a little bit of rock ’n’ roll and kind of a little ghostly,” she says cryptically. “I always say I want to look haunted.” (She ends up wearing a suitably spectral floaty and flesh-colored Bill Blass dress.)
That said, Wiig also counts Alexa Chung and Chloe Sevigny among her style icons, so there’s hope to be had. Also, if she had two hours of sleep before the Golden Globes, we want the number of her makeup artist.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
