Fugchanted

I'm just going to come out and say that I don't think a giant bow ever works, unless it's splashed across the hood of a new car:

Because I feel like Amy Adams looks a bit dowdy and somewhat droopy in this, and Amy Adams is far too young and lithe to look dowdy. And yet, here she is, all in costume as Dowdy Droopy McDated, with the huge bow and the pink lipstick and the toes and nails matching the lips and it's like all of a sudden I'm back at my junior high school's multi-purpose room heading into the eighth grade graduation dance -- at which I, for the record, ALSO wore something with a bow AND tiered ruffles. Although it was 1989, and I was 13, and the flowers on my dress coordinated with the elastics on my braces, so I think I looked pretty rad. But while this particular dress would have been, of course, far far too sophisticated for a junior high dance, there is still something about it that's Not Quite Right for 2008, if you're 75 or younger.
