Emmy Rossum in Carolina Herrera

Posted on July 11, 2013

The summertime celebrity fashion landscape is so barren and desolate that we didn’t even look at the pictures before deciding to run with this one. All we needed to know was that Emmy Rossum is wearing Carolina Herrera on a random step-and-repeat and we threw all our pictures of moody Anne Hathaway walking down the street in yoga pants or sullen Jake Gyllenhaal walking his dog aside with a “THANK YOU, MR. JESUS. FASHION!”

 

Emmy Rossum attends the Persol Magnificent Obsessions event honoring Julie Weiss and Jeannine Oppewall at the MMI in New York City in a Carolina Herrera dress paired with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

Except… um…

Wow. That’s kind of the most awkward-looking Carolina Herrera design we’ve ever seen. Then again, it might be the only awkward-looking Herrera we’ve ever seen, since her stock in trade is classic elegance, and while she rarely innovates, she always hits her mark and produces beautiful design. This one’s got the drama and femininity down, but that bodice is tortured. Lost the red bow and the weird, heavy criss-cross whatever-those-are and this would be a winner. That skirt is stunning. It’s a shame the bodice doesn’t measure up.

What an odd dress.
