Ohhhhhhh, honey. We don’t think so.

Really, our first impulse is to shriek “GIRL THAT’S NOT YOUR HAIR,” when of course, it is her hair; it’s just all wrong. Girl you need to get a queen to blow that out for you because it is looking seriously limp. Also, it’s not very flattering.
Moving down, we can admit that we gasped at the dress. It’s highly dramatic and very pretty. It also doesn’t suit her in the slightest and it’s way too long on her. Tip-toeing around this as much as we can, we’ll just say that it’s always been a headscratcher as to why she defaults to extremely retro-feminine looks like this. Honey, we don’t know how you got this far in life without figuring this out, but flirty and feminine is not in your wheelhouse. Sleek and dramatic, on the other hand; you can pull that look off like no one’s business.
Pack this dress up and ship it off to Michelle Obama. It probably won’t suit her either, but she at least can pull off the ’50s Grande Dame looks better than you can, sweetie. Go buy yourself a tube dress or a killer pants suit. We’ll help you pick out shoes for it.
