Anne Curtis, original flavor:
Anne Curtis, at the recent Star Magic ball:
Okay, Anne - I know that you don't always have good taste, and sometimes you just don't get the "dressy" thing right all of the time. But... well, you don't look like yourself here. It's as if you've decided to dress up as Lea Michele playing the Bride of Frankenstein in a very special Goth-themed episode of Glee.
This, my dear, is a fine example of how even a gorgeous ball gown can be ruined by less-than-perfect styling from the clavicle upwards.
Maybe it would be a good idea for you (and your stylists in charge) to step away from the full-coverage lipstick once in a while? I'd suggest starting here and here.
