We’re prepared to admit we might be wrong about this one (probably not), but we’re thinking Brooklyn has reached the “desperate cry for help” portion of her red carpet dressing with this getup:

The runway version of this is quite pretty, if a little bedsheet-y. Then again, nothing’s more bedsheet-y than the skirt she’s sporting in the red carpet version. In fact, we’re pretty confused about this. Dresses get reinterpreted all the time when they go from runway to rack or even runway to red carpet, but this is a totally different dress. Sure, the shape and concept are the same, but the fabrics are entirely different – and not in a “slight variation in scale and color” sort of way, but completely different types of fabrics and prints altogether. It looks less like a reinterpreted version of a runway look than it does a cheap knockoff in a discount clothing store. Worse, the changes have made it look way too casual for a film premiere. A beach wedding, sure. But a red carpet? She looks like she should have a straw bag and hat.
The hair’s not helping, either.
