We have not particularly enjoyed the trend for white dresses on the red carpet, mainly because too many ladystars see white and default to virginal/bridal looks. They so rarely take the opportunity to wear white and do something interesting with it.

Mission accomplished, we’d say. No, we don’t like the shoes, and yes, we might ding the dress on a less suitable wearer, but this works like gangbusters. It’s beautiful in an unusual, eye-catching way, but it’s rather quiet about it. Plus, we just love that she’s wearing a shape not normally seen on the red carpet.
Not quite a WERQ, because, as we said, we don’t like the shoes (their color, specifically), but a stylish, interesting, sophisticated look.
