Sally Field Double Shot

Posted on January 08, 2013

Oh, Miss Sally. This is just not your look, dear.

 

Sally Field attends the 24th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala in Dolce&Gabbana.

This is going to get us in trouble (again), but we really don’t think women in Sally’s age group should be wearing black lace, no matter how trendy it is, because it’s always going to look like widow’s weeds. Granted, these would be particularly sexy widow’s weeds, but still. It’s just not a great look. Maybe if the hem was shorter and the lace was any color but black we could get behind it.

The hair’s definitely a mistake too. She doesn’t seem to have the kind of hair that can take a sleek up ‘do like this. It just looks sloppy and slightly askew to us. She looks much better with her hair down.

Like so:

Sally Field attends the 2012 New York Film Critics Circle Awards at Crimson.

At least from the neck up, she looks great. We’re not so sure on the dress. The color’s great on her, but that neckline is just plain odd and the whole thing wrinkled up on her on the ride over. Also: the three different blues in the look aren’t working. The shoes are nice, but the clutch comes close to clashing with the dress.

It seems to us Miss Sally has not availed herself of a stylist, being, as she is, from an earlier generation of stars who never used such services. Sweetie, it’s the 21st Century and it’s time to pay someone to get you gussied up.
