Meaning: Tan + ervention. You do the math, guys.
Usage: “Hollywood needs a tannervention stop the madness it’s January folks #GoldenGlobes” — @Bevansburg
You should know it because: The great big unanswerable question of last night—after “Where did Ricky Gervais go?” and “How is The Artist a comedy?”—was “Why is everyone so tanned?” From a glow-in-the-dark Jessica Alba to a Sunkist-orange Rob Lowe, more than the usual quotient of attendees looked like they’d just come from filming a skin cancer PSA. Even the ordinarily polite Coco Rocha was tweeting Jersey Shore jokes. The reasons for hyper-tanning are numerous: chroma blindness; vengeful celebrity stylists; a(n entirely justified) fear of the GlamCam. What’s important isn’t why it happens, but what we can all do to stop it, and I think today’s best-dressed lists will help. I mean, presumably the Norse goddess Tilda Swinton, lily-pale in Haider Ackermann, is on everybody’s list. So too, I’d hope, are naturally soap-skinned redheads Jessica Chastain, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, and Evan Rachel Wood. And Angelina Jolie, looking every inch like Snow White come (partially) to life, tops many of those star-making lists today. (And she gets extra points for being able to dress herself without arms! Seriously, where did her arms go? So many questions, Hollywood. So many questions.)
