Elizabeth Banks in Peter Pilotto

Posted on April 20, 2012

Oh, Miss Elizabeth. You’ve been suckered by a dress.

Elizabeth Banks attends “The Five Year Engagement” premiere party in NYC in a Peter Pilotto dress.

And we don’t blame you, because really, this dress is pretty fantastic and the colors really suit you. But this is why stylists need to do their due diligence and why you should take some test shots to see how it photographs before you go out the door. Because if you had, you would have realized that the way a dress is lined is of the utmost importance when one is to be photographed, and when the lining – for no reason that we can fathom – suddenly goes dark just north of your lady area, it’s going to force bitchy bloggers like us to do a double-take because it gives the impression that you’re… um… doing the opposite of hiding your light under a bushel, if you know what we mean (and we think you do).

Also: something-something about drapes and carpets.
