We want to be encouraging here but not too encouraging, y’know?
Kristen Wiig attends the premiere of ‘Imogene’ during the 2013 Champs Elysées Film Festival in Paris in a Prabal Gurung black and white 4-ply silk crepe dress with curved panels and neckline cutouts from the Fall 2013 Collection accessorized with a Giuseppe Zanotti clutch.

Let’s be clear: this is an insanely tough dress to pull off and not surprisingly, she’s not pulling it off. But Kristen has a long history of wearing very drab, mostly brown ensembles on the red carpet. And we’ve long suspected she’s one of those ladies who makes a living being funny, but thinks she can’t be pretty at the same time. This isn’t working for us at all, but we really appreciate the “EVERYBODY LOOK AT ME” qualities of the look. This is no wallflower dress. Any lady that wears this to an event is expecting stares. For that alone, we say “Attagirl.” No, we don’t much like the skirt, or even the shape of this thing, but it’s so goddamn refreshing to see her in something that doesn’t make her look depressed.
So listen, let’s just all agree to quietly judge her. She needs to feel that this is the way for her to go. We can direct her efforts in a more appropriate direction later. For now…shhhhh.
Yes, the shoes are horrible. Shh.
