Lucy Liu in Dolce&Gabbana

Posted on October 19, 2012

Miss Lucy is pulling something off that ain’t always easy to pull off in red carpet pictures.


Lucy Liu attends “Connecting The Dots” Book Launch & Exhibition Opening at Donna Karan’s Urban Zen Center in New York City in a Dolce&Gabbana dress accessorized with a Lanvin clutch.

Dolce&Gabbana Embroidered Detail Dress

Lanvin Pre-Fall 2011 Clutch

Black minidress, black tights and black booties can really go wrong in pictures – sometimes it looks a little Star Trek, and sometimes it makes the wearer look like a shadow – but damn, if she doesn’t look absolutely adorable. That’s a really cute dress and a really great clutch to pair it with. It’s a semi-WERQ, but we don’t really love the hair. The outfit’s fun and youthful and the hair looks kind of formal in comparison.

    I love her. She’s in a very small group of people who has an innate quality of making clothes werq.

  • What a fabulous clutch! She really does look great.

  • The dress is so short and looks like it could easily go wrong, so I have to give her major props for pulling it off well.  Black tights were the best choice for this dress.

  • trisker

    I’d say WERQ.  she looks fabulous.  That D&G collection is brilliant.

  • e jerry powell

    She’s fighting her addiction to Donatella!

  • aumerle

    I covet that clutch so hard.

  • I’m sorry but the first thing I though of when I saw this was my old Irish dance dress I had to wear for years until I grew out of it. Ugh.

  • MilaXX

    She better be careful that Zooey Deschanel doesn’t mug her for this look. I like the look and think the pony tail was the way to go. I wish her lip was just a tad warmer, maybe a brownish pink matte shade.

    •  Zooey wouldn’t wear anything that sophisticated. If it was gingham now…

      • Or covered in ruffles, or had a peter pan collar

        • kimmeister

          Let’s not forget the full skirt.  If anything, she’d just steal the tights.

    LOVE! In my mind, she has a sweet little pony back there which makes the hair less severe from any other angle and perfect for this look. Covet that dress.

  • Isadora Paiva

    I love it, and I have no problem with the pony. With the princessy sleeves and golden bow embroidery, it has the potential to look a bit “princess at a funeral”, but Lucy is so fabulous she makes it look chic, fun and effortless. 

  • Cute.

  • ChaCha_70

    Everytime I see her I’m in awe of how beautiful she is. And does that bitch ever age? She’s 43 years old! *Seething with jealousy*

    • kimmeister

      She appears to have looked exactly the same since the late 90’s!

  • Judy_J

    Love the embellishment on the dress.

  • decormaven

    Any side shots of this look? I’m trying to discern the shape of the earrings and would like to see the booties from another angle. Love the detailing on the dress!

  • Luuhv that clutch.

  • Michael Owens

    Ditto Sobaika. Lucy is wonderful head-to-toe.

  • sweetlilvoice

    Adorable. Love her as a person and as a journalist. Her newest series, Our America, is great and well worth watching.

  • kschwarting

    I want to rush up to her and give her face a dusting of powder, but she’d probably cut me.  I wear outfits like this, but can’t make it work like she does. 

  • What a great look – love the clutch!

  • Trisha26

    I’ll give her a pass on the hair, she’s wearing my favorite color and looks très cute.

  • Contralto

    WERQ it, Miss Lucy.

  • Totally cute! And now I want that dress. And the clutch. 

  • It looks like she knicked it from the girls dept. Tall and lean works best on this 60s mod silhouette not for the under 5’5” clique 

  • RzYoung

    She’s so chic, the hair’s working for me 🙂

  • lucasuk82

    I feel like can’t always objectively evaluate her fashion because I think her beauty and poise are so overwhelmingly attractive.

  • She looks like she’s at a Junior League funeral luncheon.  That said, she’d be the cutest one there.

  • pookiesmom

    HOW IS SHE SO BEAUTIFUL? It doesn’t seem fair to have this woman in the world against which to judge ourselves.

  • junglito

    i luv lucy

  • Ugh, how about some makeup? 

  • Dhammadina

    The hair with earrings echoes the sleeves so for me it is a full out werq. 

  • i adore that clutch!

  • librarygrrl64

    That clutch is fantastic!!!
