Vera Farmiga in Valentino on Jay Leno

Posted on March 18, 2013

There’s something rather pretty, in a Stepford Wife kind of way, about this dress.

 

Vera Farmiga makes an appearance on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ in a Valentino Guipure lace dress.

But it is a TERRIBLE choice for a sit-down interview on TV. For one, that’s not a very telegenic color at all; especially on a pale blonde. For another, any visual interest in the dress is delicate and the impact comes from the long line of the skirt, which gets lost in a pile of laundry when she sits down. And it’s bunching up around her waist, which should’ve been a deal-breaker the second she tried it on. But we’re just going to have to wrap our minds around the idea that celebs pick outfits for TV sit-downs and don’t actually try them on and sit down, to see what they’re going to look like.

It’s a pretty dress, but this is one of those rare occasions when a resort collection piece actually does look like it belongs on a resort somewhere. Sweetie, slap on some sandals and go for a walk on a clear white beach with topaz-blue water wearing this dress, but don’t sit on Jay Leno’s set wearing it.
