We couldn’t understand why we were having such a negative reaction to this look:
Ashley Tisdale attends the ‘Movie 43’ premiere in Los Angeles in a Philip Armstrong dress paired with a Jennifer Behr headband, Norman Silverman earrings, a Lauren Merkin clutch, and Walter Steiger shoes.

After all, that’s a pretty cute dress. But the more we look at it, the more we think it just doesn’t work for her. We can’t say Ashley has all that much of a definable “look,” but if she’d asked our advice (and really, darlings; shouldn’t she have?) we’d have steered her away from this one. It’s a very sweet little dress and as such, we think it probably should be passed on to the Fannings and the Shipkas of the world. Besides, she doesn’t seem to have known what to do with it. The headband’s girly and young, but the shoes and makeup are hit-the-clubs grownup. And that high waist just isn’t doing her any favors.
Honey, box this up and send it along to some teen starlet. Don’t think of it as being too old for the dress; just tell yourself you’re too grown up for it.
