HBO Girls: Jessa’s Wedding

20 June 2012, 13.37 | Posted in Weddings | No comments »

GirlsJessa2 540x303 HBO Girls: Jessas Wedding

As promised, here is my follow-up post on HBO Girl’s, which pulls together some events from episode 9 and 10, the season finale. I guess we can start with the chronologically most recent event, which is Jessa’s surprise wedding in the final episode. Given her character, her dress and whole look is entirely predictable, from the vintage hippy dress to the flower headband, which fine, let’s just leave it at that.

What I’m mad at is the wedding itself. It was predicated in episode 9 with a lecturing talk by the character played by Kathryn Hahn, the jilted mom, who told Jessa she sought out dramatic affairs to “distract yourself from becoming the person you’re meant to be.” At the moment, I couldn’t decide if her talk was supposed to be funny because of how cliched and stupid it was or a realistic represenation of a passive-aggressive girl-on-girl hate crime speech, which one could at least argue was justifiable given the events that led up to it.

Whatever that scene was, I’m still aggravated that it motivated Jessa’s decision to marry, which strikes me also as a girl-on-girl crime, albeit one committed by the show’s star and writer Lena Dunham aka Hanna, to put the show’s free-spirited pretty girl in her place. Granted, while Jessa had to experience some character developing angst at some point, joining her in holy matrimony with the repulsive, boring, mixtape guy seems over-the-top mean girlish.

Though on that note, knowing the clever young woman that Dunham is showing us she is, she’ll probably take the Jessa story line in a direction next season that makes total sense and ultimately serves to makes me adore her character even more.

And just on a sort of endnote because I’ve written about this show’s wrestling with its connection to Sex & the City, take note in the scene in which Jessa is visited by her former employer she is in the midst of redecorating Shoshanna’s aprtment, an act that includes taking down the Sex & the City poster prominantly featured in the first episode.  So there goes that. An interesting symbolic act but probably by no means the last time Girls debates its HBO godmother.

Here’s one more from the premiere. This time it’s La Diabla on the left and fashion genius Ms. Patricia Field (who I embarrassingly confused with Vivienne Westwood last week!!). Devil MsFields The Devil and Ms. Field @ S&TC Premiere

See how Anna’s image is light and Pat’s is dark? That just shows you how things aren’t always as they seem!

Kid Sis @ Sex & the City Premiere

There were some seemingly random guests at the Sex & the City premiere. Not sure why Kid Sister was there. Maybe she has some music on the sountrack? She looks okay here. Just okay.  And given that she made her name bragging about her mani, I’m a little disappointed by the paint job she’s flashing.

Lil’ Kim @ Sex & the City Premiere

28 May 2008, 16.38 | Posted in Fashion, Music, Other | No comments »

Here’s the first of a couple of posts on the New York Sex & the City premiere. Lil’ Kim was there. The dress is great, love the shoes, but as you can see from the close-up, Ma’s make-up, as is often the case, is out there. Which, frankly, is mind boggling. If you ever saw the videos of Kim way back in her hanging-out, BK days, she was nothing if not adorable from head to toe. That effervescent personality still remains, but damn if fame hasn’t twisted this woman’s mirror to the point where can’t even really see herself anymore.

Marc Jacobs Bag @ ShopBop: Small-Minded

27 May 2008, 18.05 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Shoes, Stores | No comments »

An interview with Pat Field was featured on PerezHilton exclusively yesterday. Given her considerable talents, it was pretty interesting to listen to her breakdown her style choices for the Sex & the City movie. One thing she mentioned was a move toward smaller bags.

This Marc Jacobs bag recently added to ShopBop sure does speak to the trend (for scale reference, the zipper is seven inches long):

^^Small bag that packs a huge strap!

(On another note, I feel like such utter crap today. I was out in the sun and fresh air for a whole three days and after five months of grey skies and 40-degree weather, I do believe my body is suffering from a state of shock!)

Sex & the City: The Most Stylish One of All!

13 May 2008, 17.01 | Posted in Fashion, Other | No comments »

The opening night for the Sex & the City movie took place in London yesterday. All the ladies were there, vamping it up on the red carpet. Who was the most stylish of them all? Why Pat Field, natch.

 PatField 01 Sex & the City: The Most Stylish One of All!

^^This is the woman responsible for tricking the media into thinking that Sarah Jessica Parker is a style icon (when she’s actually a dork!) We now highlight our HighSnobettiest Item of the Day, well, Ms. Fields is definitely tops on my personal, all-time HighSnobettiest women list. She is that awesome.

Late-breaking update: Samia just told me that this is NOT Pat Field, it’s Vivian Westwood. Which, fine, I messed up BIG TIME, but it doesn’t matter ’cause she’s amazing, too! (I was wondering what Pat was doing with a man hanging all over her!)
