We just don’t know what to think about this look. Walk with us while we work it out.
Lucy Liu attends the premiere “Detachment” in NYC in a Chadwick Bell dress paired with a Roger Vivier clutch and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.

It’s one of those dresses that we like, but we can’t really say why we like it and we’re not really sure if it’s working on Lucy. That’s kind of odd, because Lucy has a history of working the shit out of severe blacks or B&Ws. But this looks a bit too severe to us. It looks like she swam through an oil spill to get there. The dominatrix hair isn’t helping. She’s got a gorgeous head of hair on her and we think this dress would have been better served with something softer. We also think those shoes are a crime against style and it hurts our hearts to look at them on someone with as stylish a rep as Lucy. The clutch is fine, but it doesn’t really accentuate or punctuate the outfit. It’s just kinda there, looking like an afterthought. We guess what bothers us most about the look is that it just doesn’t feel put together. It’s like she made the freshman mistake of thinking one serious dress is all she needs.
IN! It’s different and eye-catching!
OUT! Girl looks a MESS.
The Hunger Games-obsessed kittens did not agree with our complaints about Jennifer Lawrence’s golden puddle of a dress, voting it IN. Loudly.
