Gender Fuck Thursday: Gray Days Edition

I’ve been in a rather gray mood this week. The ridiculous realities of our political landscape and cultural discourse tend have a way of bringing a gal down. But I am determined to turn that frown upside down. Gray skies are gonna clear up and all. So let’s celebrate gray in all its glory. Sure, the black suit gets all the formal occasions. But a nice gray suit can really cheer a gal up when worn on the right gal. Case in point, these ladies. See, things are looking better already.

Emma Watson
Hermione went to college and joined the Newsboys Club.

Isabella Rossellini
I love a woman who ages with dignity, and in a suit.

Janelle Monae
She’s easy breezy and then some.

Ellen DeGeneres
So is Ellen, but we knew that already.

Karen Gillan
Sept. 1, I’ll be there.

Evan Rachel Wood
Vests count too. Possibly double. Possibly triple with those suspenders – and hair.

Rashida Jones
I’ve decided to adopt Ann Perkins’ description of Leslie Knope as my new personal mantra: “She’s a little doofy, but she’s sweet.”

Scarlett Johansson
She makes a rather dapper Buster Keaton. Who knew?

Angie Harmon
I miss Det. Sexy McBadass and her Ponytail of Righteous Justice.

I love Gender Fuck Thursdays, but it's causing me to have totally inappropriate thoughts about Emma Watson, considering her youth and my lack thereof.

Thank goddess. I thought you were going to reference 50 Shades, which I am SO SICK OF HEARING/READING ABOUT. These are MUCH better, stronger, cooler ladies. Thanks so much, Dorothy

I'm willing to go just about anywhere Scarlett Johansson is willing to take me, but her Buster Keaton impression is so not doing it for me.

Hi and greetings from Finland! I thought you might like this:

It's a promo shot for Finnish band Kerkko Koskinen Kollektiivi. Kerkko Koskinen is the gentleman in the photo and the three lovely ladies are singers Paula Vesala, Manna and Vuokko Hovatta. There is never enough beautiful women in white shirts and suspenders.

I can't get enough of Angie Harmon. The only thing better is Angie Harmon in a suit.

The ponytail of righteous justice would go well with alexndra cabot/stephanie march's grey suit and the original glasses of power and justice.

That is not Scarlett Johanseen. It's Ellen Degeneres

Caitlin said...

WOW Karen Gillan, please tell me that suit is in the next serious. As Scully says, oh my god!

Katie said...

Did you see the picture of Emma Watson in the Fall Movie Preview issue of Entertainment Weekly? With her short hair and her exposed stomach and poking-out hip bones? Whew.

Evan rachel wood is stunning. love the outfit. The suit that Janelle monae is wearing looks very similar if not the same as a suit i just got. the pants come with grey button on suspenders ( which is the reason i got the suit ). It suprises me that janelle is not wearing them as she loves her suspenders. nothing beats a nice grey suit.
