With each subsequent high-fashion attempt, we’re finding it just a tiny bit harder to cheer. But cheer we will, because despite our problems with this look, it’s head-turning as hell.
Maggie Gyllenhaal makes an appearance on “Good Morning America” to talk about her new movie “White House Down” in New York City in a Chloé top and skirt paired with a Carven clutch and Yves Saint Laurent sandals.

It’s just that the top and the skirt really shouldn’t be paired on a non-model person. The shape is just way too hard to pull off. Besides, we don’t think they look all that nice together on anyone. The colors flat-out clash and even though they’re from the same collection, they feel stylistically too far apart. Sure, you could argue it’s a juxtaposition thing, but for us, it’s not working. And it’s made worse by the shoes and bag, both of which are nice but neither of which go with the rest of the look.
In other words, we don’t think any item in this look should be paired with any other item in this look. But we do love that skirt, we have to say. And we’re still mildly appreciative that she’s going high end and taking risks for her public appearances.
