Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Drew Barrymore Whips It Into Shape
Drew Barrymore has been responsible for some…let’s call them fearlessly off-kilter ensembles. (Remember those overalls?) That’s not a judgment. Frankly, her goofy adorability is her best accessory and shines brightly even as we wonder, “What was she thinking?” But at last night’s premiere for her directorial debut, Whip It, Barrymore went for infallible elegance in a black L’Wren Scott dress, which looks like leather but is in fact lacquered tweed. The look didn’t entirely throw a cloak of ho-hum good taste over her personality. The dress had a saucy red exposed zipper on the back that Barrymore matched with red satin knotted pumps. Yes, her hairdo leaves something to be desired, but in all, we’d say it was a pretty good night for little Gertie. What do you think of Drew’s sophisticated moment?
