What on earth possessed Olivia Coleman....

... to agree to wear that outfit on Graham Norton? It was so un-her, she could hardly walk and looked so uncomfortable. And Graham made that rather unpleasant "Extreme makeover" comment.

Why are men allowed to be comfortable and women not? It does make me cross!

She always wears very awkward clothes on these things. Last time I saw her on GN, she was wearing a dress which didn't seem to cover very much at all, paired with quite silly shoes.

I got the impression that she was corset-ted up the eyeballs. Completely bolt upright posture, couldn't bend at the midde, etc. Doubt it was the dress, the fabric was too silky, any boning would have shown up I think.

Then I remembered that she's recently had a baby and thought I'd probably have gone out and bought a corset too given that the show I am promoting is being heavily marketed in the USA, not to mention that GH show is v popular there now.

I would have though slightly less corset and slightly more ability to move would have been a better choice. But I presume th publicists wouldn't go for it.................

Ah - we've all been there at some point with the WTF was I thinking. Usually with heels admittedly. Thankfully not on national tv. grin

It would have been less noticeable if she hadn't pulled and tugged at her waist so much. But yes, if someone was sent out to shop for her they should be sacked. The dress/undergarments were wearing her rather than the other way around.

I thought she looked great - just uncomfortable. I'm always amused when successful women literally totter onto set though in heels that are impossible to stand in, never mind walk.
