We’re a bit torn on this one because intellectually we know this is kind of a tough dress to pull off …
Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 Collection
And yet there she is, somehow pulling it off. Don’t get us wrong, it’s a gorgeous design and a beautiful print, but that shape isn’t exactly effortless and Marisa, beautiful and elegant as she is, is not a 20 year old size 2 model. Strangely, the exagerrated hip seems even more so on the model, but perhaps Marisa and her stylist decided to pat it down a bit so it doesn’t look like she’s got panniers under there. The bronze and gold metallics really play off her late-summer (and thankfully, all natural) tan, and we absolutely love those shoes she’s wearing. They look to be the same as the ones on the runway, but the black works so much better here. Once again, though, we feel the need to point out that her somewhat earthy chic take on hair and makeup doesn’t really doesn’t work with a dress like this. That’s fine for breezy chic looks, but something this attention-getting probably needed a bit more oomph above the neck.
IN! She’s a pewter, bronze and gold GODDESS!
OUT! It looks like a metallic Mexican blanket.
In other Minion Opinion News, poor Emily Blunt got raked over the coals for her salute to cameltoe, making her OUT.
