On the red carpet, as in life, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Let’s start with the win.

Now, we’ll grant that the hem on this skirt is really weird and unflattering. But the rest of the look works so well for us that we’re willing to overlook that one element. She looks so much better in white than in the black that Dior keeps putting her in. We adore that flounce with the graphic on it, which works really well as a juxtaposition against her “just a regular girl” persona. If someone like Natalie Portman or Anne Hathaway wore this dress, we’d find it too precious, but on Jen, it works just fine for us. The bright pink pumps help bring the look to a more playful, less snooty area. And her hair and makeup look great.

This, on the other hand, isn’t remotely working for us. She’s tried to work this kind of look before and we have to say, she might want to skip attempting the formal ladypant. It doesn’t seem to work for her. It doesn’t help that her hair and makeup look drab, or that the shoes are too focus-pulling, or that the details of the look are obscured in pictures, leaving her a with a very odd “stomach tumor” silhouette. Honey, let us never speak of this one again.
