Prepare yourself for incredible fashion on one sexy little cartoon.
Faithful readers have seen similar accessories recently: a cookie-esque hat on Emma Stone for Elle; nearly-identical gloves by Carolina Amato on Elle Fanning in Marie Claire. So not only is this an adorable editorial, but it actually reflects what’s fashionable this season.
And I swear, they’re not paying me for this, but can we just take a look at The Smurfs‘ epic cast list: Neil Patrick Harris, Glee‘s Jayma Mays, Hank Azaria, SNL‘s Fred Armisen, Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara, and so many more, including… Project Runway‘s TIM motherfucking GUNN! Not that he can act his way out of a paper bag, but I’d listen to Tim Gunn say just about ANYTHING.
Anyway, let’s talk about the accessories. The purse is a bit much, but of course that was kind of the point. I think the gloves and hat are so perfect in a Jackie O meets Mary Tyler Moore meets Cookie Monster sort of way.
The gloves are definitely my favorite piece, and those amazing shoes complement the gloves nicely. The necklace and the hat together are a little bit of overkill; yet neither really completes the look.
My least favorite shot of the bunch. The socks with the shoes don’t flatter her at all, the chunky bracelet looks downright cartoonish, and I think the purse, hat and earrings are more Ashlee Simpson than Smurfette.
I wish the hat weren’t glittery, because that takes it to a stripper place, but those boots were made for WALKIN’, y’all. Check out the platforms on those shiny red boots! The bag is also fierce, and that cranberry red is just fantastic.
