  3. We believe it to be the inalienable right of, well, anyone to put whatever they want on the top of their heads, but in the case of Mesdames Russell and Jones, wigs that cost more than $25 are to be preferred over those going for less. Ava could drape a dead cat on her head and make it work.

  4. It's a shame that one rarely sees dark-haired women in pop culture anymore. I could write a treatise on this subject but will leave it at that.

  5. @ Jeffinorov: "Ava could drape a dead cat on her head and make it work." I think that's what she did!

    @ Thombeau: What, the Kardashians don't count? (Snicker.)
