It’s a very Manic Pixie Dream Girl day down at TheGloss, what with quintessential MPDG Zooey Deschanel showing up twice. After Jennifer’s exegesis of the stock character’s gradual dumbing down this morning, we thought it might be a good time to discuss her look at the Golden Globes over this weekend.
The dress, first. That custom Prada was a controversial choice. We actually didn’t hate it, but we were pretty confused by it (blogger probs). Others criticized her fake sideburns, which we didn’t really notice.
But… did you see her manicure?
Deschanel tweeted pre-show: “I am wearing a gown but my nails are wearing tuxedos” and the accompanying photo:
Whoa. We have such intensely mixed feelings about this that… the internet’s putrefaction of our soul must be complete.
So: is this cute or cutesy? Does the fact that she’s a grown ass woman (and not a 10-year-old) change your decision? Is it charming or annoying? Is it a subtle, refreshing way to shred all the staid awards show reverence we’ve come to despise or an obnoxiously affected Hollywood version of “quirky” and “original”?
…Or is it just nail art and we should calm the fuck down?
