Mila Kunis in Dolce&Gabbana

Posted on February 14, 2013

Darlings, our Fashion Week adventure has come to an end and we must say a sad goodbye to fabulosity (“Hi, Miley Cyrus. Nice to meet you.”) and insanity (we are bent in half from lugging around a collective 300 pounds of luggage) and return to the real world and simple, homespun pleasures like criticizing starlets in borrowed dresses on red carpets.

Mila Kunis attends the premiere of ‘OZ The Great And Powerful’ in Los Angeles in a Dolce&Gabbana lace dress paired with Christian Louboutin ‘Angelique’ pumps and Sutra ruby earrings.

It seems to us that the “pop of color” trend has moved up to the ears and away from the feet. We can accept the matchy shoe trend (so long as it’s short-lived), but those shoes are a freaking tragedy, from a color perspective. They’re cute, but we hate that they’re the same dingy color of the dress. The dress is very pretty, though. And the earrings are gorgeous. But doesn’t this all feel weirdly unbalanced? Maybe we’re too color-focused, but she’s an expanse of beige with two small pops of purple near the top. It just looks odd to us. Are we weird about this? Wouldn’t a pair of black shoes balance this out more?

Hair and makeup are gorgeous; we’ll give her that.

    She looks gorgeous.

    • zbird17

      She is so pretty that I forgive any and all fashion sins.  

  • Patricia Gillett

    Ban the beige on the Red Carpet!!! Why are stylists so obsessed with this color? Ugh. 

    • Sobaika

      I think Mila’s coloring (or her tan) is suited to this color. More so than Fannings, at least.

      My issue is that the shoe is the cheap-looking satin bridesmaid nightmare. A stronger shoe and a burgundy lipcolor and we’d be talking.

      • MoHub

         The shoe also looks to be the wrong size.

        • AnaRoW

           I don’t think they’re the wrong size. She’s appears to be sliding forward a bit.  That said I love the shoes but then I don’t have a problem with satin shoes.

      • mshesterp

        I would totally support a matchy matchy plum shoe to complement the earrings with all that beige in the middle (which I agree, works on her).  I love it until you get to the ankles.  Those earrings are amazing.

        • http://www.snoskred.org/ Snoskred

          100% agree – if she had shoes that matched the earrings it would kick this outfit up a notch.

          The earrings are incredible.

        • Alyssa

          That would take this look to the next level!

    • stellamaris73

      It’s very much that “color of old bras” that TLo rage about, isn’t it? It looks a bit better on her than on some, but I can’t help but imagine how great she would have looked in a dress the same color as her earrings…

  • Tamara Hogan

    Yes, I think you’re weird about that. ;-) I think the shoes are absolutely perfect with that dress. She looks amazing.  

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=745465637 Nellie Wilson

      I agree. I think black shoes would pull focus to her feet. And while I think she looks very lovely, I am so tired of these drab, dirty bra colors on the RC.

  • Deac82

    she is giving FACE.

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      Her blue steel is quite hazel!

  • http://twitter.com/sofi0518 Sofia Lopez Garcia

    Not black shoes but some wine colored shoes the same shade as the earrings would have been lovely.  I do adore the dress though!

    • ConnieBV

      I would have gone pewter.

      • Kerri Erwin

        That’s exactly what I was thinking! Black would be too heavy, plum/wine could get too matchy. But something with a little more oomph was definitely needed. Pewter/gunmetal would be perfect.

    • gabbilevy

       Would have been perfect. Pretty good as-is, though.

  • StellaZafella

    Appropriate…for a second wedding.

  • MilaXX

    Black would be better, but this is the best she has looked in a long time.

    • 3boysful

       I think she looks very pretty, but slightly not like herself since she is not sporting the extremely smokey eye she usually does.

  • hmariec19

    I love everything above the ankles.  Those earrings are gorgeous.

  • Susan Collier

    Perhaps black shoes… I dunno, she just looks so good and the dress fits so well and is gorgeous.

  • Monday1900

    I didn’t even recognize her.  Dress is lovely except for the color but I adore the shoes!  She looks pretty overall though. 

  • Janet B

    How does she looks so pretty wearing such a blah color?
    Black shoes? No.

    • conniemd

       Face and make up are beautiful. Kinda amazing given the blah color of the dress.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    I think she looks great.  Although, I do wish this color, whatever it is you call it, would die out soon.

  • kategs

    I think she looks amazing.  I like the wink of ruby and black shoes would be too heavy.

  • VioletFem

    Agreed. I am not a fan of this color because it is so dull and doesn’t ever seem to photograph well. Although, everything north of the neck is gorgeous. 

  • ballerinawithagun

    She is gorgeous! I love the shoes but not with that dress. That dress (Ugh!!!) looks vintage and not in a good way, just worn, stained, drab and lifeless. Dunk it in a vat of Rit now!

    • http://profiles.google.com/denise.alden Denise Alden

       Yeah, that dress color is not good on her.  And she’s so lovely.  Black shoes would have helped, but that dress!

  • schadenfreudelicious

    that dress color is dull as dishwater…literally…

  • Annabelle Archer

    Nope – love it all from top to bottom.  This is a WERQ for me.  It’s sweet and ethereal and flattering as all get out.  The color works with her olive complexion and a contrasting shoe would have just made my eye twitch.  I’ve missed Red Carpet Mila. 

  • xmixiex

    my god, I love everything about this.  I agree that a coloured shoe would have been better, but whatev.  those EARRINGS. 

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

    I don’t get it. If I’m going to do matchy match colors, I’m going to do it with bright colors that I love. Why would you do matchy match with dull-as-dishwater colors? The earrings were the perfect choice though. She could have matched her shoes to that color instead. I would say, not so much a black shoe, which would be too stark, but a deep brown shoe, maybe a raisiny brown, would have added some interest.

  • Wendi126

    This is my mothers prom dress from 1956. I’m gonna ask her what color shoes she wore.

  • Elaine Lang

    I’m just pretending that the shoes are as silver as they look in one of the photos, and further imagining that she is wearing them in protest of the Hollywood bastardization of the OZ of the original Baum books.   (Silver shoes, NOT ruby slippers, damn it.)

    • amf0001

      I actually think she is perfectly dressed for the venue – the Oz motif is played out nicely in her clothes. And she looks stunning!

    • Michaela Tuckova

      I think they ARE silver, and are just unfortunately picking up the yellow from carpet. Quite possibly the dress is too – notice the yellow undertones are especially prominent in the bottom of the skirt. I would be very interested in seeing the whole getup in a better setting and lights – suspect the colours would be much, much better.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HIZ7S2FRLC52NXARXQ4ERHNOGE Liz

    Miss Havisham.

  • pookiesmom

    She looks so amazing I didn’t even notice the shoes.

  • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

    I love the dress, I love the shoes, but I think both would be better in a colour. Plum dress, black shoes and emerald earrings?

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      Don’t go giving Amy Adams any ideas!

  • crash1212

    I think the toes are doing the balancing here. She looks beautiful and I want those earrings.

  • msdamselfly

    The dress color is so unflattering to her complexion

  • Squarah

    Black shoes would just be bizarre. I love this from head to toe and it’s definitely one of her best looks. I seriously covet those shoes…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ Dot

    Don’t think I would have liked black shoes any better than these, which are pretty terrible. I would have loved to see some shoes in purple or wine, to call back to the color in her earrings. Still, the dress would be so much prettier in a different color.

    • filmcricket

      Agreed with all of this.

  • lehen

    i think she looks stunning regardless of the color

  • afabulous50

    I for one, am glad you’re home and blogging again!  Perhaps a contest next year to take a minion with you to carry your bags and fetch your coffee??

    Anyway…that dress is a bit of a ho hum…

  • T. Gill

    Thank you for using so many of my photos!

    Tina

    • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

      We LOVE your photos, Tina! XO TLo

  • lrober03

    Dingy is right.  The color is washing her out.  
    Those earrings are fierce though

  • ccinnc

    Hmm, I love this color – the background looks almost pale blue in some of the shots. May be my monitor. Earrings are fabulous. She looks romantic and lovely. I don’t mind the shoes.

    • minnye

       I just posted that it looks like pale lavender. would love to see the dress in person… I bet it’s beautiful.

  • MoreShoes

    She looks like a Disney princess. I don’t love the colour of the shoes but they fit the whole picture. Black shoes would stumpify her.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=14301272 Kate Gorton

    In this case, I can’t see what kind of color exactly would look good with the dress, and I don’t know if black would’ve been a good fit: perhaps too harsh with the noncolor of the dress? Wouldn’t black shoes pull focus? 

    Then again, I’m only an amateur at this kind of thing. And I thought she looked gorgeous, head to toe.

    • RebeccaKW

       I agree, I don’t think black would work.  Well, not any better than these.  But I agree with some other PUFs that a plum color would be lovely.  I also think maybe gold, like a metallic sandal, but then again, against that floor, it may be terrible.

      However, she didn’t default to silly putty pumps (or any type of hoof-shoe), so that’s a win for me.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=14301272 Kate Gorton

        She could’ve gone the ruby-slipper route, in a more subtle way…nah. I really don’t know what shoe would look better than a simple silver here.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=528009972 Jennifer Small

    The beige dress!  We hates it, Bagginses!  Agree on hair and makeup, very nice.

  • insertclevername_ici

    modern day glenda. Gorgeous. 

  • maygoon

    Sofia Loren realness

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Everything above the neck is perfection.

    Everything below the neck is 50s lace and satin the color of used dishrags.

    • CrazyAuntie

      I agree.  But I have to acknowledge that it’s tough to find a dress that’s going to look good on the yellow brick road…

  • ojosazules

    She looks beautiful.

  • insertclevername_ici

    also – dear TLo, do not start judging celebrity fashion based on how much fun you had when meeting them. (insert reference to “hi Miley. Nice to meet you!” and post from facebook yesterday. I did not think Miley looked great at the Marchesa show. That picture made her look like she needed to a) eat a sandwich and b) buy bigger clothes. I am starting to question your judgment.)

    • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

      Like clockwork. It never fails. “You met a celebrity? I question your judgment now!”

      We shook her hand and said “Nice to meet you.” That was the extent of our interaction. It’s not like we partied with her all night. In fact, we turned down an invite from Cosmopolitan editor Joanna Coles to attend a party in Miley’s honor.

      And “eat a sandwich” comments are not allowed here.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ginny-Ellsworth/534496198 Ginny Ellsworth

        I am amazingly curious as to how you meet anyone in that circus atmosphere. Especially if you are focused on the clothes on the runway, on the people around…and not getting mauled in the process. 

        She is lovely and the dress is beautiful on her. It looks like it fits well and shows off her lovely neckline but the color is unfortunate in the photographs. Perhaps a more silver/platinum color and a darker grey shoe?

        • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

          Fashion shows never start at the time they’re scheduled to start. There’s always at least 20 minutes of people milling about the space and chatting with each other. Miley was seated next to Joanna Coles and we went over to Joanna to thank her for the invite to the Cosmo party and offer our regrets that we couldn’t make it. Then Joanna said, Have you met Miley?”

          We almost never go up to celebs to introduce ourselves at these events. We can count on one hand the number of times we’ve actually interacted with one. And in each case, we had our judgment questioned simply because we had a 30-second conversation with them, which always strikes us a utterly ridiculous.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ginny-Ellsworth/534496198 Ginny Ellsworth

            Thank you for indulging my curiosity about fashion shows. I’ve always loved the pictures you include of people attending the shows. They always seem so gracious about being photographed a zillion times. And how cool is that to be introduced  by Joanna Coles? 

      • kimmeister

        I’m amazed by how often the “eat a sandwich” comments come up, and equally amazed that no one ever suggests the eating of other foods.

        • BrooklynBomber

          Kimmeister, I’m absolutely wounded* you’ve forgotten my “Save the Sandwich” campaign.  I can’t even remember the details now, but the “eat a sandwich” comments were at their height, and I’d post about a silly “non-profit organization” having to do with offering other foods to underweight models.
          * not really ;)

  • Mexxoo

    The cut of the dress is lovely, but the color is so dingy.  It’s gone from “antique lace” to “something which was found in the attic covering an old dresser, then used to dust off the nearby boxes.”  The pale color should pop against the background, but it more blurs into it like a filthy rag which cannot be fully cleaned, even with bleach.  Makes me sad.

  • m0r0

    I just don’t get what anyone sees in this woman. That said, to my eyes that style of dress looks odd on her. Retro she does not read.

    • alyce1213

      There’s no accounting for taste, is there?  You don’t get it and I think she’s gorgeous.  
      But to say she does not read retro — that I just do not understand! (ref. Gina Lollobrigida, Sophia Loren).

      • m0r0

        The two beautiful women you mention, Gina and Sophia, both had hourglass figures that work wearing this shaped garment. Mila is built very differently (straight up and down) and I don’t find this retro shape suits her. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I meant no harm to Mila with my commentary, I’m sure she is a nice person. But as an actress she does nothing for me. 

  • http://robot-heart.tumblr.com heartbot

    I think she has the right coloring to pull off beige. This looks lovely. I will give you the shoes could be better.

  • http://twitter.com/DuBey2 Marie Fessler

    Love it all, esp. in light of the muted but busy print that was her backdrop.  I’m so shocked that it was D&G (I had to scroll back up and check) since no cleavage or anything else oversexed is showing.

  • ohayullno

    Personally, I love it and I think it’s the fugly “yellow brick road” that’s giving those shoes an ugly color.  Nothing looks good on that color yellow.

  • kschwarting

    It all works for me except for the shoes, which I probably wouldn’t like in any color.  She doesn’t do soft, feminine looks very often, but they really work for her when she does.

  • eandh99

    I agree that this is a shout-out to Glinda’s dress from the 1939 Oz, but the dingy-grey colour is ruining it.  Needs more colour – maybe not full-on Glinda pink but shift the grey more to a rose or mauve, give her a silver shoe instead of the bridesmaid satin.  She looks lovely, but in spite of the dress not helped by the dress.  

  • Nancy Dunn

    I thought this was Vanessa Hudgens! Didn’t recognize her as Kunis. Weird.

  • Crystal

    Hair and makeup are BREATHTAKING. The dress is ok, but she looks really pretty 

  • Sara__B

    She looks flat-out beautiful.

  • CrazyAuntie

    I always mix up Mila, Vanessa and Sarah from Modern Family!

  • alyce1213

    I love it all, from head to toe.  Mila can wear this color because of her skin tone.  She can also take on heavy eyeliner like no one else.
    (Does anyone else think she can do so much better than Ashton Kutcher?)

  • alice20c

    Ah, the orange-ish color on her face indicates the summer makeup season is inching its way upon us. Only 3 months to full oompa-loompas.

  • filmcricket

    Hate all of it except the earrings. The dress looks dingy, the shoes look cheap, and the make-up is aging. Go home and try again.

  • formerlyAnon

    I’d say match the shoes to the earrings. But then, I’m matchy. Nonetheless my immediate take was “lovely, nearly perfect starlet dress – better in a color, great earrings, awful shoe color.” I like her makeup and hair, though from the back the hair is a bit frazzled.

    Bottom line is she looks great, though.

  • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

    She’s so gorgeous that she is making this work.

  • rloliveira

    I love it. I think she looks elegant and sophisticated. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000905542323 Rhonda Shore

    It’s pretty close to perfection, despite the shoes.  That’s my favorite dress length, don’t know why more don’t wear it on the red carpet.

  • BuckeyeLou

    Mila looks lovely & “princess-like”…so soft & fitting in with the fairy tale world of OZ.  Her hair fits the style of the dress.  I like the pop of purple in her earrings.  Its a WERQ from me.

  • kimmeister

    I love the design of those shoes, they’re so sweet!  Agreed that the color is all wrong for this dress though.

  • aristida_girl

    to me this look is perfection… i love the way the shoes add to the princess-like feel of the dress, the subtle use of non-color, and the earrings are to die..i also think the dress is perfectly suited to the premier of the OZ movie, and fits her to a tee… so for me, she is very, very in..

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/DNWEFT2SVBX5T3NPMROQCT4U2U jennyv

    I love it all! She looks graceful and feminine.

  • EditKitten

    I like all of it. The shoes are inoffensive. The dress is lovely, but she is sheer perfection from the shoulders up.

  • CeeQ

    Yeah the shoes are not great. I like the style too but the colour is dreary. It is a huge expanse of beige with nothing but earrings to jazz it up. I agree, a black shoe would have worked better. Or even a silver pair. 

  • Tatiana Luján

    ¿Satin beige peep-toes? Ugh!
    I vote for black soes.

  • looksandbooks

    I think she looks amazing! But I do agree with your point about it all being a little too one-color. 

  • l_c_ann

    She wears the dress well and the dress design is pretty, in a good way.
    But the color of the dress is the color that cotton takes on when it’s died in dilute coffee to hide that it was a first communion dress or a graduation dress. 

  • calimon

    Yes, black shoes, please & thank you!

  • GorgeousThings

    I am not sure I like the shoes all that much, but I think black would drag the whole look down, especially if it’s black platforms.

  • DominoEstella

    Totally disagree.  She looks divine and I love the shoes.  

  • unbornfawn

    You guys are absolutely right.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    That’s the RIGHT way to do a neutral lip! I think any darker colored shoe would have worked better. She looks lovely and is on the fast track to being one my my fave younger actresses. She’s got a great Loren-type elegance, doesn’t she?

  • BrooklynBomber

    I think black shoes would be wrong with this. An amethyst color, like the earrings, would have worked. But it’s a sweet and pretty look, and I don’t mind the matchy here. I think if she looked happier it would all be fine. Those of us who don’t have photographers following us around are fortunate that when we have those days we can put on a hat and sunglasses and keep our heads down until it passes.

  • Tracy_Flick

    SO close! The dress fits beautifully and the shape is adorable. The shoes are cute too. But the color of both is so unflattering. Plus, the contouring and eye makeup is aging. 

  • http://aldonsusi.blogspot.com/ Susi R

    Gorgeous!

  • twocee

    Honestly she is one of those stars I have trouble finding fault with because she’s just SO. DARNED. PRETTY.  As long as she’s not wearing a garbage bag she looks good.

  • http://twitter.com/amndad amanda lynn

    i weep for her earlobes.

  • nannypoo

    I don’t like this dress at all, not the style and definitely not the color.

    Miley Cyrus? Really?

  • sk8tfan

    Why is she wearing scarlet jewelry to her First Communion?

  • Jessica O’Connell

    I do wish that the colors were a little more…you know, colorful, but despite her beigeness she looks incredible.

  • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

    Neck up, she looks breathtaking. LOOOOOVE those earrings. The dress is pretty enough, and the shoes scream Payless. 

  • EEKstl

    Love hair and make up, LOVE the earrings, love the dress…shoes are a very bad choice. It’s probably too obvious to go for a dark red shoe (which was my immediate thought), but I hate that way that silver just looks off with the more gold-toned appliques on the dress.  It’s like wearing two reds – DOESN”T work. 

  • Funkykatt

    Her gorgeous face stands in the paler color as it should. 

  • Beverly Kozma

    I love it all.  This is the kind of dress I hoped to wear, as a little girl in the early 60′s, looking through Sears and Penney catalogs.  Sounds weird, but that’s all we had!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    It’s the right dress for the venue. The shoes certainly are not a match, I wished she would have gone with some thing close to the color of the earring. Face and hair, gorgeous, as always. 

  • Judy_S

    Interesting observation about the earrings. I like her in this beige, she is carrying it off, though in itself it’s an ugly shade.

  • jw_ny

    She does look lovely.

    I like the dress very much, and think a classic black pointy toed pump would look great…with the addition of a thin black belt at her waist.  I like the pop of color at the earrings, and think they are pretty…they just seem a bit too big or overwhelming to her face. 

    I thought her makeup looked really pretty, until I saw the rear shot…yikes…looks like drag queen contouring before they blend.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Patrick-Cleary/1201575213 Patrick Cleary

    Why wouldn’t she take this opportunity to wear RUBY SLIPPERS?!?!?

  • minnye

    Looks like the color is really washed out in the flash; to me it doesn’t have enough yellow to read beige. I’m thinking it’s more of a pale lavender. In that case, the grey shoes are ok although perhaps uninspired. Mila wears these ballerina/princess silhouettes well without looking precious. Nicely done.

  • j_anson

    Was there a “old-bra only” color rule for this red carpet?

  • SugarSnap108

    That color is the definition of drab, but with her skin tone and hair color, it’s not too dreary.  Plus, the dress is lovely and so is she — so I can overlook the shoes.

  • peachy

    black shoes would balance out the look with her black hair, yes. i love the dress. and it looks fantastic on her. sort of ‘meh’ on the earrings. although they are nice, they’re a bit cazhual for that dress. seems to me that the dress calls for sparkly cut stones rather than flat ones that appear as though they’d just been lifted from a running mountain stream bed. perhaps they don’t photograph well. beautiful woman.

  • peachy

    p.s. why does she look like she is holding her breath (read: sucking everything in reeeaaalllll tight) in that first photo. disturbing.

  • mhleta

    That color is a non-color, the sort of thing that happens to a wedding dress after 80 years of sitting in Miss Havisham’s basement. It is a testament to MKs beauty that the dress absolutely looks lovely on her. In this case, she is doing great things for the dress rather than the reverse. I agree about the shoes, though. Black or burgundy would have been infinitely better. 

  • B_C_J

    I wouldn’t change a thing. I love the style and the color of this dress. The look is soft, feminine and romantic. The makeup is absolutely lovely.  The shoes are also absolutely right. Something punchier would have drawn attention away from her beautiful face. As it is, the bright earrings draw the eye to exactly the area one should focus on.

  • PaulaBerman

    I like the shoes. I think a black shoe would pull the focus too heavily downward. Mila got this look right. 

  • joything

    Maybe suede pump in a pewter or mocha, to ground the beige cloud?

  • j_am

    WANT THOSE SHOES. But yes, in black here they would be better. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/VWVJVYZJCTXSQJA4E5PNEZLJA4 Jessica

    Hate the shoes, but I think with her rich coloring the soft beige of the dress looks floaty, and retro-romantic. Thumbs up!

  • http://twitter.com/MarfMom Maya

    portions are a little odd, i’ll agree. love the dress. she looks kinda like vanessa hudgins in that side shot of her face, no?

  • DTLAFamilies

    Beautiful girl, okay dress, and WTF is she doing with Ashton Kutcher???

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/QK3MTAHUVJCMI7DANY6WFCAIUM n a

    I want this dress for myself… and to also be 10 years younger so I could wear it… sigh.  The shoes are hiddy. 

    But- not to pick, but does she look sorta weird? Her face looks bloaty or something…  Too much time in Iowa with bf.

  • Judy_J

    Bland, but still pretty.

  • Monabel

    Insipid. And the seam at the shoulder looks a bit lumpy, as if it has been altered.

  • SophieCollier

    It’s pretty and I could see this as a summer wedding ensemble.  I guess her toenails could be the pop of color on the bottom?

  • appliquer

    Stunning

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002396153672 Ann Martina

    Copper colored shoes might have been pretty.

  • OrigamiRose

    Maybe it’s the fever I’m running but I rather like it.  And I’m not much in the way of fan of hers.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

    Want.  Earrings.  Now.  This looks like a grey dress to me w/ silver shoes.  She still looks fabulous.  Even more so b/c her douchey boyfriend isn’t in the pic w/ her.

       me too! I have a fancy dress event next month and I’ve been looking for earrings that color/shape.

    If the dress actually was the same dove grey color as the shoes it would look miles better on her. The dingy, old underwear color she’s wearing does her no favors.

    Sorry–no.  A black shoe would make the whole look seem heavier.  As it is, it’s light and flirty and fresh.  Gorgeous.

    It’s funny, until I got to TLo’s comments, I thought the dress was actually an extremely light lavender/purply color. It works for me. I like the shoes too, and her hair looks amazing. +1 for the updo. Not done nearly often enough in this age of cocker spaniel/mermaid hair…

    How nice that Tony has asked her to the dance at the gym. Sure hope the Sharks don’t show up.

    When my white socks get that color, I throw them out. 

    She’s truly beautiful, though.

    She really is Exquisite!!!!

    Neck up is stunning.  Neck down is dirty dishwater, which is a shame.  The dress could have been pretty.  The shoes are bridesmaid ugly.

    I would have loved to have seen this with black shoes, but the dress and earrings and hair are so gorgeous that this is really working for me.

    I’m too lazy to look through all of the comments to see if this has been said to death yet, but I really think it’s the yellow floor that is making this look so off… I think it’s lovely and I don’t hate the shoes as much as I should either

  • leftcoastpickle

    I hate the dingy colour of this dress/ shoe combo, and if the dress/shoes where in just about any other colours, it would make this look an out of the park winner to me.

    I love this unabashedly

    I actually like the shoes better than the dress, but her make-up and earrings steal the show.

    I love the STYLE of the shoes if not the color in this particular instance.  Too bad they’re not purplish/reddish.

    And the dress is so lovely, were it not in such tired-looking colors.  I even think the lacy bits being in a darker (taupe-ish) color than the body of the dress might have saved it.

    She looks like a large, used tea bag.  Love the shoes, though not with this dress.

    I wish the colours of the dress and the earrings had been reversed.

  • XMom

     I like the whole look overall. It is very sweet. But what the heck is she doing with her neck in that first photo? It just looks bizarre!

    Is it me, or has Mila’s face changed? I don’t think she looks like herself!

  • RocknRollmom

    Love the dress, hate the color.  Mila is going for the Sophia Loren look but not quite there.  Something just a little off.  I don’t think the dress color does much for her.  I am thinking someone like Kerry Washington or Frida Pinto might have a better chance of pulling off the color.  Beautiful hair and make up.  Gorgeous earrings.

    She is a gorgeous woman.

  • pulpytomato

    I don’t think this dress photographs well from a color standpoint. Only in the close up photos do you see the true color of the dress and realize that her shoes match. When photographed from afar, it doesn’t work. The earrings are fabulous. From the neck up, she looks gorgeous.

  • kikisayshi

    I love the shoes and love the dress. I imagine the color looked much better in person. 

  • kathrineb

    The first picture is a little awkward but I think she looks great. I do find it annoying how Hollywood is so obsessed with very light beige and/or skin-colour dresses.

    The earrings are making her earlobes look like one of the national geographic’s tribe of the sahara ladies

  • guest2visits

    I think that while these shoes are not so bad – your idea of black ones would be even better. I love the dress on her.

  • shelley514

    What is up with Mila’s neck in that first photo?  She sure is looking long in the tooth these days.  And in photo #7, she has more powder on her face than Johnson & Johnson.  She looks like an old wanna be princess.

  • bd73

    why not balance it with shoes that match the earrings? considering the fabric of the shoe that would coordinate nicely with the old lace color.
