      It could use some jewelry or a belt, but it fits well and while the color might not be the best choice, it’s not a terrible one.  I love the shoes-the play of the black heel against the white platform is kind of chic.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      is that some type of reverse ombre hair thing she has going on?..not loving it…

      • Lilak

        Nor I.  That’s some color-not-found-in-nature “doll hair” for sure. (Though perhaps TLo might consider it a step in the right direction for Kelly Osbourne, hmm?)

      • VeryClaire

        She needs to lay off the bleach, the blond parts look fried.

    • Joyce VG

      The dress is cuuuuute!  I love the color!

    • Heather

      Cute ensemble but very summery. I have issues with off-season clothes. 

      • Janet B


    • nannypoo

      The dress is nice on her. Beautiful color. But where did she leave her accessories?

    • rainwood1

      It looks a bit out of season, but otherwise she looks great.  I like that she isn’t all “done up.”  The Brits can be so refreshing that way, at least some of them. 

    • NC_Meg

      It’s a super cute dress and she is really pretty but the hair is zzzzz.

    • Elena

      Cute, but girl, you need a belt or necklace or clutch or something!

    • Anathema_Device

      Cute dress, but she needs some accessories and cuter shoes. 

    • kimmeister

      Well dang if blondes don’t pull off orange well.

    • Jennifer Hofstetter

      Cute dress. Sad hair.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      I want “nude” shoes to go away, For Eve Er.

      • 3boysful

         And this is a particularly unattractive shade of nude.

      • MilaXX

         I actually like these nude shoes. The black heels add a bit of interest.  A ring or a bracelet would have been nice, but I think this is a great look.

        • Kiltdntiltd

           What annoys me most, is that “nude” does not even remotely approach an actual skin tone known to Man.

      • NurseEllen

         Are these really nude?  On my computer they look peachy pink, and I do love the black heels.  But what is up with the “no accessories” thing lately?  Has everyone joined a cult or something?  Would it have killed her to wear a bracelet or necklace?  As it is: cute dress but BO-RING presentation.

    • marlie

      She could have used a belt or some bolder accessories. It’s a cute dress, I like the color, but it’s lacking that exclamation point at the end. Hair and makeup are good, and I actually like the shoes.

    • Gabriella M

      No accessories/jewelry, neutral pumps? Missed opportunity for fabulosity. I love that shade of red-orange. Cobalt blue probably would be too much, but I bet a pair of deep purple pumps would work great with this. And a statement necklace. 

    • rawrgrowlrawr

      I was too impatient to wait for Downton Abbey, so instead of sleeping last night, I watched all of Series 3. They seriously have to try hard to make her look plain. She is positively lovely. Love the color on her.

      • MilaXX

         I’m halfway through.

      • Kristin McNamara

        Right?! She is a beautiful woman.

    • MilaXX

      I watched a few eps of Downton Abbey last night to take my mind off the election. After that it sure is nice to see her looking all pretty.

    • Zippypie

      Dress and makeup lovely.  Tri-tone hair and clunky shoes, not so much. 

    • quiltrx

      The edging around the armholes (both on her and the model) is unfortunate…the shinyness makes it look like sweat stains.

      And her hair hurts my feelings.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      I love her eye makeup. Such a small thing to focus on, but one that is done wrong more often than right! We’re still in shorts here in Cali, so the summery dress doesn’t bother me.

    • SapphoPoet

      She looks really cute, but it’s not very seasonal–too summery. Also could use some jewelry.

    • NoelleMB

      I have issues with the ensemble, but I can’t really say anything, she looks so pretty! They make her look so plain as Anna on DA (although she still looks pretty darn cute even while dressed in frumpy maid clothes), it’s always kind of shock to see her dressed up at an event or red carpet. I love that color, even if it is a bit too summery for November.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I love the dress, but I don’t like the shoes.

    • WittyCism

      Shared first impression with the previous comments (no accessories, could’ve used killer shoes), but when I went back to the pics, I have to say she looked really young.  Maybe that’s what they were going for:  youth vs polished.

    • decormaven

      Snore. How can a stylist take a dress in such a kicking color and dial it down like that? Add a bold necklace, a better hairdo, and anything but those hiddy nude pumps, and we’d be talking real RC fabulousness.

    • MoHub

      I’ll even forgive the nude shoe on this. The color is fabulous.

    • jmorino08


    • onefifteen

      Am I the only one that has a problem with the teeny tiny brows? Looks so 90s.

    • Dot

      This is probably the first nude pump I’ve ever liked! Nice to see her all dolled up.

    • Contralto

      She’s adorable and I love that color on her.  She needs a delicate necklace to complete the look.

    • Lisa Kramp

      For the love of all things holy, JEWELRY!!!

    • Imasewsure

      Cute enough dress but the Marketing Director in my office looks better than this on a daily basis…. boring (and I don’t know who she is either)

    • butter nut

      like the dress, not sold on the shoes & i hate the hair.  too flat & lifeless.  a sleek updo or ponytail would have been much better.

    • Aidan B

      Love the dress on her, am undecided on the shoes, and agree with other kittens that this is crying out for jewelry. All in all though, she looks cute!

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Way to go Anna, show ‘em your young and hot!
      Oh yes, and can I borrow that dress when you’re done with it?

    • lucasuk82

      Good shape and color, but this needed something to make it interesting.  I picture a stack of bracelets and shoes with a bit more hardware.

    • librarygrrl64

      Bleh. She’s wearing my second-favorite color and she still looks boring as hell. What happened?
