Paula Patton

Is it weird to say that Paula Patton reminds us of our middle school student council adviser? You know the type. She was cool with the kids, hated by the other teachers and always dressed to the nines?

Something about the Baggage Claim star in this pink party dress takes us right back to those days. This is exactly what Miss D would have worn to the 8th grade Valentine's Day dance, much to the envy of every skinny, flat chested 13-year-old in the room. 

Regarding the cocktail frock itself, we're not sure this look should have left the '90s. Yes, the color is rich and gorgeous, and we can get behind a little shoulder ruffle, but combined with the mini skirt and black tights it's a strange style. And that's without mentioning those matching fuschia bows on the clashing navy blue shoes. 

We can already hear the whispers of a jealous math teacher saying Miss Patton is trying way too hard.
