We’re kicking off an “IN or OUT” discussion about a dress that caused its wearer to trip and almost face-plant during the most important, most watched moment of her career. We don’t even know why we’re bothering. Oh, wait. Yes we do. It’s because she looked gorgeous in it.

It’s a funny thing to single out first, but that bustline is lovely on her. Her hair and makeup are also quite lovely; flawless, really. And while we love her jewelry and think it’s well-chosen, having that necklace hang down your back all night had to have been major-league irritating. Yes, the dress feels more than a little bridal, but the shape is incredibly dramatic and the styling does its best to make it seem like she’s not supposed to be carrying a bouquet and walking down an aisle. We think she looks pretty amazing, but there is that whole “too much dress for her to walk in” thing, which is a considerable mark against the look. If a lady can’t handle the difficulties of wearing a certain kind of dress, that lady should probably pick out a different one.
IN! Too stunning to complain about, even if she did trip in it!
OUT! Huge, bridal, and hard to walk in. Why is this a question?
