... and comes up once more as the perpetual deb at the ball. I love Drew, she's girlish and gutsy at the same time. Sure, the top of this dress should have been brought in, and maybe the shade is just a hint too pale for her, but who cares? Drew is enjoying being Drew, who cares what the fuss budgets say?

Drew thinks pink ...
The dress is Marchesa, and for me Marchesa's track record remains unbroken. I've never seen a Marchesa dress that wasn't at least a little bit "to die for", that's how lushly feminine they are -- without ever crossing the "overdone" line. The satiny, simple peach-pink clutch is old-style Hollywood and doesn't compete with the dress, just complements it.
Can you believe this is a woman who'll soon be starring in a movie about roller derby chicks? Hard to believe. She's a chameleon. Never did see her as Little Edie in Grey Gardens, but it's on the Netflix list.
If I ever get rich, thin and married again (ha, Ha and HA!) I will wear a Marchesa gown at my wedding. And ride off into the sunset on my new husband's motorcycle.
On a completely different note ... did anybody see The Emmys last night? I forgot it was on, and by the time I remembered it was too late. My favorite comedy show did win, however (30 Rock). And Alec Baldwin as best male lead in a comedy series, that made me happy as well. He may be lunatic fringe in real life, but on the show he's pitch perfect.
By the Hammer of Thor I cannot NOT laugh at 30 Rock! The writing is soooooo spot on. And Tina Fey's considerable talent is being put to good use. Yay for ladies in comedy.
