In honor of the premiere of the third season of the Louisiana Bayou Vamp-Drama, "True Blood," I've decided to dedicate this post to the daring fashion efforts of Anna Paquin.
Or, as my brother so-lovingly refers to her: "Sookie-Anna-Paquin."
... with "Sookie" mispronounced as "Suki."
Seriously, any time he refers to her. Ever.
(He's kind of the best.)
Now, for some reason, until very recently, I was under the impression that Miss S.A.P. was severely lacking in the "ferocious fashion department."
(That reason most likely being: "snobby gay faggotry.")
Anyhow, I was wrong. Dead wrong.
Let's count down a few of the reasons why, despite all evidence to the contrary, I am somehow not always right:
This super-cute Proenza Schouler mini-dress that Anna wore to the Season 3 premiere event a few days ago.
Casual-chic, youthful, and different from the plethora of red-carpet mini-dresses out there.
(Plus, you gotta love a girl who loves her gap, and doesn't give a *damn* if you don't.)
This colorful, Magic-Eye-wonderful dress from Marios Schwab, for the same reasons as listed above...
(I'm sorry, I'm just a total sucker for a girl who thinks outside the box when choosing her mini.)
Might this give a headache or two to those prone to seizures? Sure.
But that's a small price to pay, in my book.
Which, by the way, is entitled:
"Suffering for Fashion: The Many Reasons Why Aesthetics Take Precedence Over Health and Safety... Buy it Now!"
This beautiful gold Stella McCartney dress, which she wore to the 2010 Golden Globes.
Sexy, texturally-varied, and fits her like a gold-plated condom... err, glove.
Sorry, my mind just automatically *goes there* when I'm looking at fashion as sexy as this.
(It's a good thing mind-reading Sookie, the character, aint here, or she'd slap the sass right outta me...)
This fabulous, ruffled creature-creation from Viktor & Rolf...
- Does homegirl look like she belongs at the helm of a Gay Pride float? Of course.
- Does she also look like a bird had sex with a frilly dinner napkin? Sure, why not.
- But most importantly: Does she look fierce?
In my humble opinion, Fearless = Fierce.
... and Sookie-Anna-Paquin looks about ready to face down a whole cadre of bloody vamps.
(After all, she's already got all the absorbency she needs right there on her person!)
No explanation necessary.
(You know me.)
