Miss Olivia has been making the rounds, going to Important Events in attention-seeking dresses and getting her face out there. The very least we could do in the face of such dedication is to offer our opinions on the results, no? Walk with us.

Not that we would ever recommend wearing it on a red carpet, but oh man, do we love the giant puffy jacket in the runway look. We think this is a dress that definitely needs a jacket, if only to cover up some of what’s going on. We don’t love the sleeve treatment or the choice of shoes (they fight with the dress a bit), and we think the criss-crossing lines aren’t particularly flattering, but it’s not a terrible look. A little zhuzhing up and layering and this could work fine.
Now, let’s go in the opposite direction, Olivia!

Again with the focus-pulling shoes. We don’t think we’ve liked those shoes on the red carpet once. We like the design, but they appear to be tough to pair with the right look.
Anyway, the dress is super-cute and super-colorful, making it the exact opposite of that sci-fi bondage cocktail dress above. Don’t love the hair, but we’ve been critical enough for one post. If we had to pick one outfit, this one wins. The other one, the more we look at it, really needs a little black jacket.
