We think this look is kind of adorable, but we go back and forth on whether it comes off a bit fussy and retro (in a bad way).
Yvonne Strahovski attends 2012 TCA Summer Tour – CBS, Showtime and The CW Party.
She must have been lowered in by helicopter because that satin-y skirt is remarkably unwrinkled. We have a long-running joke that some smart entrepreneur should buy a bunch of those traveling horse stalls and charge top dollar to transport ladystars to events unwruffled and unwrinkled. We just love the idea of someone traveling down a freeway and seeing Nicole Kidman standing up inside a horse trailer wearing a Marchesa gown and holding her hair in place.
But the skirt’s kind of overly fussy in a way it didn’t need to be. And that very high collar is making us sweat. There’s a bit of a disconnect between the casual hair and the fussyfussy outfit. And we’re really trying to refrain from the over-used “pop of color” suggestion, but we think black pumps actually bring this outfit down. Silver sandals, maybe? Red peeptoes? Blue ankle straps? Either way, those shoes take the look from fussy to funereal.
But then we pull back, look at the whole thing and say again, “Hunh. Still kind of adorable.” Kittens make the call:
IN! This is all working for me! Adorable!
OUT! Betty Draper called. She thinks you look a little prissy.
