Velvet gowns, darlings. They’re tough as hell to pull off, even for the preternaturally thin.
Uma Thurman attends the 9th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball in an Atelier Versace gown.
But we’ve gotta say, Miss Uma’s coming damn close to making it happen here. It helps that:
- The color is gorgeous
- The gown has a pretty great shape to it
- Her face is looking very refreshed.
But it all goes a little wonky around the bust and waist. And we just can’t ignore how heavy and thick the whole thing looks. Dramatic, yes; and – refreshingly! – seasonally appropriate, but this is one of those “initial impact” looks that loses its impact the longer we look at it.
But we have to admit, she really does look facially great.
