Oh, Miss Christina. Just what are we going to do with you?
Christina Hendricks at the New York premiere of “I Don’t Know How She Does It” in a Vivienne Westwood gown.
It’s a great color on her. We like the drape in the bodice and the upper part of the skirt. But that hem is just plain weird. And the shoes look kind of cheap. Satin shoes with a satin dress comes off way too bridesmaid-y. The makeup looks good and the hair, while a little messy, suits her. The jewelry’s a bit on the ostentatious side but a girl’s allowed to deck herself in diamonds if she wants to for her movie premiere. Besides, she’s just the kind of gal who can work a really luxe look.
Now let’s talk about the elephant in the room.
We don’t like to impose rules on ladies, but generally speaking, if you can look down and lick the top of your boobs, your dress is too tight. They’re her most famous feature and there’s nothing wrong with showing them off, but walking around like you shoved two down pillows down the front of your dress is not the best way to highlight the goods. Fix that hem and get that bust fitted and she’d look pretty spectacular, but both elements are so distracting that they kind of ruin the look.
IN! Flaunt ’em if you’ve got ’em, I say!
OUT! Baby heads! She’s got baby heads in her dress!
