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?

    I think she does look sophisticated – in a sure of herself/not trying too hard way.

    meh – I could take it or leave it. LBDs always “work” to a degree, but this one is too long in my opinion. It might work on someone tall and think, like Scott herself, but for Drew it’s too much. Were it 2-4 inches shorter I think she’d look better as it would emphasize her curvy figure more. The hair – wazzzup? It’s better than the black tipped ends, but still.

    I think she LOOKS like Drew Barrymore ‘the director’. Classic simplicity with a hint of fun. The dress length is perfect.

    Id love this enssemble on anyone but you don’t know how happy I am to see it on Drew! A+++++! I am so tired of seeing her wannabe 80′s rock’n roll (dare I even use this phrase)”sense of style.” This says “im a sucessful actress/producer/director” not “im trying to be sixteen again”
