Well this is definitely one of the most visually cohesive red carpets we’ve seen in a while. At yesterday’s CW, CBS And Showtime 2013 Summer TCA Party we get the feeling that that the majority of attendees had some sort of “I’ll wear my black dress and my blue nail polish, you wear your white dress with the blue sequins” arrangement. Or at least there was some sort of memo specifying a ‘crisp, monochromatic dresses and separates spiked with pops of off-primary colors’.
From Downton Abbey to Mad Men, the small screen is having a love affair with period pieces as of late, and at last night’s Critics’ Choice Television Awards, the same nostalgic attitude permeated the red carpet, with Emmy Rossum, Diane Kruger, and more opting for looks that harkened back to decades past. But while some gowns captured the best elements of bygone times, others were the wrong kind of retro.
We must get sent a new “fashion film” every week from every brand under the sun, and while some of them are cool and some of them are crazy, very few of them are actually funny and not a single one of them ever acknowledges that, at the end of the day, it’s just a commercial. Enter this send up of every fashion film you’ve seen before, courtesy of Vena Cava’s new line, Viva Vena, and starring Bachelorette’s Lizzy Caplan.
