Sydney Sweeney, Kate Hudson & Laura Dern attended the Armani show at PFW

Here are some photos from Paris Fashion Week, where a surprising amount of big-name celebrities came out specifically for the Armani show. I wouldn’t want to spend a rain-soaked holiday in Paris, but sure – maybe Armani paid some of these women to show up for the show.

Kate Hudson was there with her fiance Danny Fujikawa, and Kate was given a tube top and a bubble skirt. She sort of makes it work, but that ponytail is doing a lot of work to make this cute. Speaking of someone’s natural beauty elevating a weird design, Nathalie Emmanuel was given the most tragic top I’ve ever seen. Why would you put nude/illusion netting there and why is it f–king baggy??

I think one of the biggest design fails is what Sydney Sweeney wore to the show – while the dress itself is beautiful and wearable (I can see that on like twenty different Emmy nominees), it’s so utterly typical of fashion designers to make the big-chested woman cover up to this degree IN JULY. Look at what Kate Hudson and Nathalie are wearing and tell me small-boob privilege doesn’t exist.

The Armani show was also a family outing for Emma Thompson and my nemesis Laura Dern, both of whom arrived with their daughters. My nemesis actually looks okay – Armani suits her lanky frame.

    All of these outfits are eye sores. Especially the bra and blazer – maybe I am getting old.
    And Kate made me do a double take. She usually dresses better. She’s also been tweaking her face and it shows – and not in a good way. I did not recognize her. I get aging is a bi***, I too see it in the mirror and it’s a downer. Having to compete with the younger talent coming in must be a bigger bi***. The struggle is real.

      If memory serves, Goldie Hawn once said you should get your first facelift while you’re still in your 40s, so that subsequent ones are just minor tweaks with less drastic results. Of course, this was back when surgery was the only option. But I would guess that mom’s philosophy has been passed down to daughter.

  2. Kate says:

    I think Kate looks really cute! Her partner is not too bad either!

  3. Gobo says:

    I think it’s a nude mesh top over a crystal bra, rather than a single top? It’s an odd aesthetic, but i kind like it as a way of tongue in cheek “muting” the sparkly bra top.

  4. HeyKay says:

    None of these outfits look good to me.
    Kate H seems to be out and about with her partner, Danny K., pretty often lately.

    Laura’s daughter’s dress is nice. I don’t mind Nathalie’s look – it’s very on trend atm. I personally didn’t like the bra as top trend back in the 90s and I don’t like it now. Kate looks like Kate. I think this works BECAUSE it’s her. And Sydney Sweeney… I like the dress, but…am I the only one who feels like she has ZERO charisma? She makes everything feel so basic to me.

    • blue says:

      Agree. SS is just a bore, except when she’s doing her MAGA stuff & then she’s repugnant.

  6. Lens says:

    Agree about Kate looking awful and with that high pony tail it gives I dream of Jeannie retread. And that is Laura Dern’s daughter? Looks nothing like her and I mean zero. She is all dad I guess, whoever the dad is. Sydney looks fine but at a design show you want to be a bit more than just fine. She’s young so let her enjoy more than a long black gown.

  7. Josephine says:

    At least Sydney Sweeney looked good as no one else did although the color on Laura Dern’s daughter is beautiful. And I did not recognize Kate Hudson at all – that’s some wonky make-up or bad work.

    • Angie H says:

      I’m thinking bad work. Face doesn’t look the same

    • Coco says:

      Ya Kate got too much fillers done and she didn’t give it time to settle before the event so it’s extra noticeable. The high ponytail doesn’t help to make ether, but I’m guessing it “helps” with pulling the skin on her face back.

    • Granger says:

      I didn’t recognize her either! On the same note, I watched the Shania Twain documentary the other night and wow, she’s had some weird work done too. She looks dramatically different.

  8. Dierski says:

    I LOVE Sydney’s dress… just not at all for summer, wtf.

    • Kirsten says:

      Same. She looks fantastic, but that has to be SO hot and uncomfortable this time of year.

  9. Kirsten says:

    I cannot fathom why Nathalie’s top has illusion netting over her stomach and arms. What is that even for? Just let her wear the sparkly bra.

  10. Angie H says:

    Sydney’s dress may be overdone but wow that lip color is gorgeous & gorgeous on her!

  11. Cali says:

    Emma Thompson’s daughter reminds me of Billie Lourd. The lips maybe? But clearly much, much taller. Laura Dern’s daughter is gorgeous

  12. HeyKay says:

    Emma Thompson?
    I did not recognize her. She requires a better hairstyle or a hat until that grows out.
    I like Emmas’ work, especially her with Alan Rickman.
    I do wish she would stop pushing her daughter out as an actress.
    Her daughter, Gia?, is just like Cindy Crawfords’ daughter to me. Not talented enough to be getting as much work or attention as they do. Nepo babies. So many these days.

    Small boob privilege??? WTF is that.

    As a flat chested woman – that is a flying load of crap comment.

    Small boob privilege does not exist.

      I hear you, but I do think designers struggle to dress Sydney. It’s easy enough if you’re going for vavoom but it’s like they’re afraid she can’t pull of elegant and classy if her boobs are showing, whereas the more modestly endowed women are given playful looks. I too am someone whose cleavage has never stopped traffic, but I have sometimes wondered if it’s challenging for women lower on the alphabet to dress in office casual while avoiding showing nighttime cleavage (which is completely unfair, as your own body is not cocktail attire).

  14. blue says:

    Love Emma’s shoe game. No heels or ballet flats on her in years.

  15. bettyrose says:

    I just watched Handmaid’s Tale for the first time. I’m never gonna look at Sydney Sweeney the same way again, or any of the characters in chilling roles, but especially Sweeney and Bradley Whitford, who both played entirely outside their typical personas.

  16. Rainbow says:

    Out of topic but as a Greek I am a little confused by the use of the word nemesis in English.
    Nemesis was the Greek goddess of vengeance and represented the punishment for the evil that was going to happen.
    We don’t use the word to describe a person that we don’t like 🤷‍♀️

    • bettyrose says:

      As a literary concept, in English “nemesis” refers to the protagonist’s rival. Like, in Emma, you could say that Jane is her nemesis. Comic books also use arch-nemesis to mean your extreme rival, usually in a good vs. evil dynamic, but that’s really something only a super hero has. IRL, it might be a joking way to refer to a coworker in line for the same promotion. So, I guess we aren’t ever using it in the original Greek sense, but there is a fairly consistent definition of it.

      This site has an irrational dislike of Laura. I don’t get it. Get someone else to cover her then. They can’t all dislike her so much.

      Sydney Sweeney is both obnoxious and bland at the same time, but I like her dress. But it does seem a bit much for such a hot July day.

      That blue dress is FIRE and I want it in my size (which I doubt it comes in). Also while I’m wanting things I will never have, I want her hair. She’s stunning.

      I wonder whether the deal to get the celebs is that they are gifted an outfit. Maybe they pay them too but that seems ridiculous.

    I am disappointed but not surprised at all that Haute Couture week went ahead in Paris amidst the massive protests following the tragic, racist, shooting of Nahel Merzouk by police. Guess to everyone who attended clothes are more important than conscience. Even in the UK some of the more right leaning papers like the Telegraph are saying it is tone deaf. The Daily Fail of course, couldn’t care about a brown teenager if fashion will give more clicks, which I’m even less surprised about.

    • Bee says:

      These things are intensely planned for months in advance. I’m not surprised. It would be really nice if there were acknowledgements of it but they are not gonna cancel their big expensive event unless the city is literally burning. And even then the building it’s in would probably have to be on fire.
