In or Out: Hilary Swank in Elie Saab

Posted on June 27, 2011

We’ve given this gal a hard time over the years, but when she gets it right, she gets it right.

Hillary Swank attend the MAC Cosmetics Sponsored IIFA Awards Presentation in Toronto in an Elie Saab gown.

We were going to make this a WERQ but heat makes minions and Bitter Kittens feisty and argumentative, so maybe you’ll surprise us all and tell us it’s boring or unflattering or whatevs. Is it the most amazing dress we’ve ever seen? No; not even on her.  She has a history of wearing slinky gowns that are just on this side of slutty (and sometimes are way past the county line, going 80 in a school zone). To be diplomatic about it, it was obvious she decided the body was the selling point in terms of her looks and she went that route for a long time. This dress is a nice way of staying true to her style, but not giving off even the slightest whiff of being tacky or too revealing. It’s everything she wants in a gown – slinky and low cut, either in the front or the back (or both) – but she looks classically beautiful instead of trying to draw your attention to her butt or boobs. Also, we love the various shades and colors, which give it a shimmer even when it’s not standing in a pool of light. The makeup’s very polished, but the hair’s a bit aging and a blowout would soften the look considerably. There. Consider this look ASSESSED. Your turn:

VOTE NOW!

IN! Perfection! Brava!
OUT! Boring! Boo!

The Minion Opinion on Fergie’s new face “sad dominatrix” getup was a loud and near-unanimous OUT.
