Years of drunken antics and a generally slutty public persona seem to be skewing my ability to judge whether Tara Reid was hot in her tight red dress in Hollywood the other day. There was a time when positive presumptions about Tara's hotness were easily made, but then she went and made herself the poster child for fallen grace in the 21st century, setting an example for the Lohans that would follow. I suppose one can, at the very least, deem her appearance here more appealing than in years past, when being slobbering drunk with mangled bewbs flapping out of loose-fitting designer dresses was her idea of a night out on the town. She seems relatively in control of her faculties here, judging by her ability to simultaneously negotiate the parking meter, designer handbag and high heels. Perhaps a bit skinny, but not emaciated or hung over either. All in all, not a terrible showing. I don't know if it qualifies as a return to her once lofty heights of physical attraction, but at least she doesn't look like she's about to spew up a 5th of vodka.
