I’ve been a big fan of Zuhair Murad’s work in past years, but lately he’s veered towards the very sheer. I think he interpreted the red carpet blackout as more of a skin-out.

This is a lot of look and a lot of leg. Listen, we all know CZJ has some virgins blood stored in her fridge that’s helped her not age a day since the mid-90’s, but I have to say that all the sheer looked a tad bit crass when she was standing on stage next to her 101 year old Father in Law, Kirk Douglas. Absolutely stellar jewelry though, and honestly if this had been lined, it would have been a slam dunk.

This is just too short, too sheer, and too casual for the globes. While her belly button is on full view, thankfully by the grace of god or some dark magic, her lady-bits are covered up.

Listen. I love Helen Mirren. I love how flawless her face is. I love her commitment to dramatic fashion choices. I love her sauciness. I love her tendency to wear clear stripper heels on the red carpet. But I don’t love this. She’s starring in the upcoming thriller about the Winchester Mystery House as the woman who built the infamously strange rambling home full of doors and stairways to nowhere meant to ward off ghosts and spirits. Its in San Jose and a total campy delight of a tour if you happen to be passing through. However, did she have to look like she just walked off set in full (if shockingly sheer) Victorian era mourning dress?
