Fashion Disaster: Kaley Cuoco’s White Gown Is Only Fit For A Virginal Slumber Party

Fashion Disaster: Kaley Cuoco's White Gown Is Only Fit For A Virginal Slumber Party

Kaley Cuoco had a bit of a misstep on the red carpet for the A Night At Sardi’s event in Beverly Hills last night.

It read: “My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.” As a little kid I interpreted this to mean: Love yourself.
