I wish there were a video of this somewhere because I really would like to know what’s going on behind these pictures:

Will Ferrell voices Megamind, and Tina Fey voices Roxanne Ritchie in Megamind, a 2010 American computer-animated superhero comedy film.

For the panel at Comic-Con, Will Ferrell showed up covered in blue face paint and dressed as the title character.

Before heading to YouTube to find one, let’s talk about Tina Fey’s dress. Here are better pictures of it, i.e., ones without Brad Pitt covering Tina Fey:

This is a good dress choice for the 40-year-old multi-awarded actress, writer, comedian, and mother. It’s sexy without revealing too much and drapes on Tina Fey beautifully.

The paint splatter print is perfect for both Tina Fey and the event; it’s young, fun, and trendy and conveys the message that Tina Fey is connected to her Comic-Con audience.

I don’t even mind that Tina Fey chose to wear basic black satin pumps with the dress. At least they’re not the overworn, much too used YSL Trib Twos.

I’m still searching for Tina Fey’s dress, but I found these cool, interesting ones that also have the paint splatter print. I also specifically chose dresses that are a bit formal-looking, like Tina Fey’s dress.

It’s interesting to see how these different brands use paint splatter while still retaining the “formality” of the dress:
