Happy Holidays to all the Bitter Kittens! And the very best of New Year’s, darlings!
What? It’s August? Well, someone should’ve told Christina Ricci, then.
YSL Trib Too High Heel Pump in Red Suede
To be fair, we probably wouldn’t be making this critique so strenuously if Anne Hathaway hadn’t just done the same thing. In the constant battle to remain stylish on the red carpet (and to avoid the dread of accidentally wearing something someone else was photographed wearing), a lot of gals show up looking like they just arrived here from 6 months ago. This isn’t the worst we’ve seen, but the whole look sure as hell doesn’t say “late summer” to either of us.
Further, we just don’t like this look. It’s all good on paper, but it’s not really working for Miss Christina at all. For one, it’s kind of severe. With the tight bodice, flared skirt and pin-straight hair, it’s giving her a bit of a bobblehead look. We’re not entirely sure what we would have done differently (aside from scrapping the whole look and starting over). We love the dress, but we don’t think the shoes really help the look and the hair and makeup are really harsh. Maybe a pair of sandals and some colorful bangles would have made it look a little lighter. Whatever the case, it’s just not working for us.
IN! Fierce, chic, and sexy!
OUT! Robot Girl Christmas!
Olivia Wilde’s “Half-Breed” dress got itself an IN from the minions. T Lo is pleased.
