Sandy, darling. You’re hurting us real bad.
Sandra Bullock attends the premiere of ‘The Heat’ in New York City in an Ermanno Scervino black leather dress paired with Bottega Veneta sandals.
Bottega Venetta Multicolor Calf Butterfly Sandal
The tight leather dress. Long has it been the bane of many a ladystar’s existence, for it seems that they all succumb to its dubious charms at some point in their careers, believing that they are among the .001% of the population who can really pull one off. And to be fair, we do think Sandy falls into that tiny percentage who can wear the tight leather dress. We just don’t think she can pull off this tight leather dress. For one, the bustline is low and wide, which isn’t really flattering her. The cups are only having a distant conversation with her breasts. And we realize she favors that-mid-calf hemline – and likes pairing it with a past-the-ankle shoes - but it’s all looking a bit too tight and a bit too heavy on her. Plus the lether-and-lace effects are tacky as hell.
Girl, we know you think slapping on any old black thing and a pair of complicated shoes is stylish, but it’s really starting to look like a uniform at this point. And it’s looking like you’ve run out of chic ways to express this look and are now turning towards slightly tacky, ill-fitting ways to do so.
Box this up and send it off to … actually, we can’t think of anyone at the moment. It’s not a horrible dress. But whose dress is it, kittens? To whom should Sandy make the shipping label out? Just please not SJP, because she’d wear this in a second and she really shouldn’t.
