Girl That’s Not Your Dress: Elizabeth Olsen in Valentino
Okay, girls. Grab your coffee and meet us in the conference room. We have issues to discuss.
Elizabeth Olsen attends IFP’s 21st annual Gotham Independent Film awards in New York City in Valentino.

We were checking out the wires, looking for celebrities to criticize, when these pictures popped up. In thumbnail size, they elicited “Ooooh, she is WERQing that! She looks fabulous! Huzzah! Huzzah, I say!*” Then we got a closer look.
It’s almost there, right? Like, it’s almost a really pretty dress and she almost looks really pretty in it. There’s almost a cool, glamorous, Grace Kelly sort of vibe.
But this dress is doing her figure no favors at all. That line cutting right across her waist isn’t terribly flattering. In addition, we think the colors, such as they are, aren’t helping. She looks too washed out. We think this dress would probably look amazing on a dark-skinned woman, but on Elizabeth, it takes on the hues of old bras.
A really pretty dress on a really pretty girl and it just doesn’t work. Girl, you need to set that dress free so Viola Davis can get a hold of it.
Also, you should leave the old lady clutches at home.
*We still don’t talk like this.
