Britney Spears in Stella McCartney

Posted on September 14, 2012

We’re not even going to bother submitting this one to an IN or OUT vote because the Bitter Kittens have made it very clear that they hate anything with the name Stella McCartney on it.

Britney Spears attends the premiere of ‘The X Factor’ Season 2 in an Stella McCartney dress.

But this is not at all a bad dress. And part of what makes it appealing to us is that it represents a step forward for Brit. Let’s face it: the gal’s dressing skills tend towards the tacky and the slightly slutty. To see her in something like this; something with a tiny bit of sophistication; something with a message to it other than “look at my tits and legs,” well… that’s a good thing, as far as we’re concerned.

Unfortunately, Brit still has a tendency to wear things far too tight and this dress, while very tailored, is not meant to be squeezed into. What it’s doing across her midsection is just tragic. And we don’t love reverse darts in most cases, but the effect is ruined here because the dress is so tight on her. Kind of a shame. Had she gone up a size, she could have managed a trick she’s never been able to before; she could have looked chic.

In other news, she needs a new hairstyle and her eye makeup is a little scary.
