Because of the retail season, we’re seeing an awful lot of celebs at store openings instead of red carpets. This causes problems for us because when we’re talking about red carpets and photocalls, we’re talking about looks that were never paid for and were put together by a well-paid stylist. It’s why we’re such vicious bitches about it. And while these store appearances are all about wearing borrowed clothes too, we get the sense that there’s not a lot of attention paid to the styling outside of “Which dress do you want me to wear for your store opening? That one? Okay, fine.”

Simple shoes, no jewelry to speak of and DIY hair and makeup. Not a criticism, just an explanation as to why posts like these are rarely “In or Out” or “WERQ.”
As for the dress, it’s really pretty but we don’t really like that big sheer overlay, which makes it look like it’s still in the garment bag. Also, this is all way too white and wifty for such a pale gal. She looks too washed out.
