‘Our Brand Is Crisis’ Review: What Worked, What Didn’t

“If you don’t like the road you’re on, start paving a new one,” is what Sandra Bullock says at the end of “Our Brand Is Crisis” as her character Jane ‘Calamity’ Bodine.

The David Gordon Green film depicts the story of a Bolivian presidential candidate who enlists the help of a savvy Bodine, a well versed woman in political campaigns who helps him change his reputation and get him re-elected.

The lead role was originally created for George Clooney who also is producer of the film, but after reading the script Bullock knew this part was made for her. And boy did she own that role!

First to shine on my list is none other than Sarah Michelle Gellar. As a die-hard Buffy fan, she is always on my love list. Her white and black pleated dress was perfection on her tiny frame and she looks as gorgeous as ever. Next is the never aging Sandra Bullock. Can you say stunner?! While her dress isn’t my absolute fav, her makeup is flawless and she looks perfect.

Another rising fashionista is Bailee Madison, this past year was her greatest year in fashion, need a refresher, click HERE. Her coral dress with cutout black heels showcase her in a fun and age appropriate manner. Can we talk about how HOT Jessica Alba looked in all white? I mean come on!

Let’s not forget about my favorite lady vampire, well at least on screen, Nina Dobrev. The Vampire Diaries leading gal was a knock out in a black, long sleeved, bedazzled, mid-calf length, Jenny Packham dress. Among my other favorites were Jennifer Hudson in an all white looking very slim and sleek, and Anna Faris in a nude sequin pant suit won my heart. While many weren’t for this look, I thought it was super fun, casually cool and appropriate for the People’s Choice Awards. Then who can forget about the shining Britney Spears! Looking fabulous is her signature nude and glitter, sequin dress. Looks like she’s in great shape and can you believe she won her FIRST PCA?! Really, it was a shock to me as well.
