Sister Mary Houndstooth

Minus the headgear, anyway. This is Drew Barrymore at a recent screening (in Washington) of Big Miracle:

Drew Barrymore in Washington, D.C.

And if you ask me, this is Drew at her absolute peak of cute, but I have to admit that I don’t quite get this Ports 1961 outfit. (That’s the brand name; it’s not a 1961 outfit from Ports.)

Jessica of the Fug Girls suggests:

When I first saw this — last week — I thought it was A HOT MESS. But now that I’m coming back to it, I’m not nearly so mad. In fact, I think the whole thing could be saved if it were just a mini-dress. SUCH AN EASY FIX, DREW. Next, we need to do something about your hair…

Yes, yes, yes on the hemline; I like her hair, though, at least from this angle.

    My first response is: “Why’s she wearing camo?”

    Then again, I work with Fish and Wildlife types, so I tend to interpret anything patterned like that as “camo.”

    But I agree: the proportions are off for her, the skirt needs to be shorter. (I think it’s only very tall women who can pull off maxidresses well)

    I don’t have the 3-D glasses needed to appreciate the outfit, but I understand the “Miracle” all over the backdrop: it’s a miracle they got her to come out of the dressing room with that on!
