Lizzy Caplan in a bizarre graphic dress for a HFPA party: stunning or budget?


I’m writing about these photos because A) it’s super-slow and B) I have become a complete and total convert to Lizzy Caplan, and I hope you’ll join me. These are photos of Lizzy and her Bangs of Doom at last night’s Hollywood Foreign Press Association “Miss Golden Globe” party. Basically, it was just a pre-Golden Globes party in which lots of young, up-and-coming actors got to party and meet members of the HFPA. It’s good that Lizzy is doing these kinds of events, because if she plays her cards right, she’s going to get some major lead actress nominations for her role as Virginia Johnson in Showtime’s Masters of Sex. Sidenote: I dislike her dress, but at least she stands out, I suppose.

I haven’t talked about Masters of Sex yet because, quite honestly, it makes me feel all the feels. I’ve been enjoying this first season of MoS more than I’ve enjoyed the new season of Homeland. Both are must-watch for me, and I’ve been watching both with an online subscription (which means I’m ahead of you TV viewers of MoS – I’ve seen up to episode 10!). Let me just say – Masters of Sex is an AMAZING show. Lizzy is a revelation, Michael Sheen is awesome and Alison Janney joined the cast and she is breaking my heart and rocking my world. The real standout (in my opinion, and this is controversial!) is Caitlin FitzGerald, who plays Libby Masters, Dr. Masters’ long-suffering and completely sweet wife. The actress looks like a young Joely Richardson and she can act her ass off. I’m kind of hoping Caitlin, Lizzy, Alison and Michael all get major nominations for this show and I’m highly recommending a holiday binge-watch for all of you.


I’m also including some photos of Amber Valletta (who looks really tired), Colin Farrell (hello, sailor) and Sosie Bacon (daughter of Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon – she’s going to be Miss Golden Globe), also from this same HFPA event.

    Damn it! I still love me some Colin Farrell!

  2. Lucy says:

    Definitely joining you. Who doesn’t love Janis Ian?

    • Apsutter says:

      Yes! Lizzy is so wonderful and I feel like I’ve been secretly enjoying her for years because she’s been on lots of small projects. She was fantastic(actually the whole damned cast was great) on Party Down

  3. Sisi says:

    I like caplan’s outfit, except for the shoes. But that seems to be normal this season, because I haven’t seen any interesting shoes on the carpets yet. Anywhere.

    • Nono says:

      I think the prints go well together. I wish more attention were paid to the cut, though. A good cut would have made it something special.

  4. Scarlet Vixen says:

    I actually really like Lizzy’s dress! I love the houndstooth print, and it’s elegant and conservative without being frumpy. It seems appropriate to the occasion, too. It’s SOOOO nice to see a young actress without her t*ts or *ss (or both) hanging out.

    • wiffie says:

      She pulls it off! She’s also one of maybe TWO people where her bangs don’t make me go UGH. I think they look good on her. And I NEVER say that about blunt bangs.

    • Aura says:

      I’m with you! Love the dress and she looks so beautiful in it. Masters of Sex might be one of the best shows I’ve seen in yeaes

    • Sassy says:

      Very chic dress. Love her character on M of S. Does anyone else think that the pairing of Allison Janney and the young stud doctor is a bit far fetched? I love the show, but some of the plotting (Gay Provost married to Janney) is rather far fetched. The “trip away” after Master’s wife loses her baby – funny, but to have Barry Bostwick try to seduce her after Masters left didn’t seem realistic.

    • Florc says:

      I watch the show and like it, but the story line is drifting. And ofcourse she shows off her T and A. It’s Showtime! Just like HBO and other movie channels. The series shown will always have tons of nudity.

  5. Hank II says:

    Little Colin looks so cute! I want to bite him

  6. GMarchetti says:

    I’m watching MoS and enjoying it, but I don’t think Lizz’s is getting a nom for that. She’s good, but not outstanding, I’m sure there’s better drama actresses to go for Lead Drama Actress.

    But she’ll always be Janis from Mean Girls to me, and that alone is a reason to love her forever.

  7. Quinn Parker says:

    Love that dress…very sophisticated.

  8. Hannah says:

    Sosie Bacon doesn’t look like either of her parents. Very pretty, though.

  9. janie says:

    I think Sosie Bacon is cute as well. I agree about Colin, he’s a cutie!

    • tinyfencer says:

      She is so adorable!

    • Hakura says:

      @Janie – I agree, Sosie is very cute! I know this is horrible of me, but when I first saw her pic here (I’d never seen her before or even knew her name), I thought “At least she seems to have gotten a decent mix in the ‘looks’ department…”. I know I don’t have to explain that where Kevin is concerned xD But I always felt like Kyra’s features were a little ‘harsh’, & just couldn’t find her very attractive (personally).

      She has a babyface too! I’d have never guessed 21.

  10. Bianca says:

    Yay, I love Lizzie Caplan! I’m definitely going to start watching her show.

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      Well, get ready to love her a lot more. She is SO awesome in this show! The first 2 or 3 eps are a tad slow, but after that, tons of juicy stuff happens and it is AWESOME!
      I also love the girl playing his wife.

  11. Dubois says:

    I like when celebs take pictures in front of these types of backdrops. It gives you perspective as to their height. Going off the “Aquafina Flavorsplash” next to Amber Valletta, Lizzy Caplan is tiny!! And Colin I think is a wee bit shorter too cos Amber has her knee bent. I’m obsessed with height, that’s all.

  12. eponymous says:

    I was looking at the wrong person! Sosie is so pretty, I love her dress. I kind of see her dad in her.

  13. Lydia says:

    I agree with everything you said about the show. I like Lizzie’s outfit.

  14. umyeah says:

    Love love love masters of sex. Getting so juicy!

  15. Cristina says:

    I like Lizzy’s outfit. Amber’s too and Sosie is very cute:)

    I guess you ladies went through the photos at the party. Did you see how thin Anna Gunn looks these days? She lost a lot of weight! Anyone know why?

    Also up for discussion, Amanda Righetti’s new bangs.

      I’m going with plastic surgery. I’m sure she had some lipo when she decided to go for the facelift and fillers
