Buffy is serving up dominatrix-executive realness.

 

The Crazy Ones” star Sarah Michelle Gellar attends the CW, CBS and Showtime 2013 Summer TCA Party in Beverly Hills, California in an Izmaylova dress paired with Jimmy Choo pumps and Dana Rebecca Designs jewelry.

This is a pretty great look all-around, but for an industry event like this, we’re thinking it might’ve been a good idea to tone down the severity. For us that means softer hair, which is not a hard call to make in this instance because the hairstyle she’s got is downright awful. That’s clearly a walking-away dress but that is so NOT walking-away hair. And we’ll just say it: it ages her. Moving down, we’d switch out almost all the jewelry for simpler pieces; diamonds and white gold or silver, very understated. And then to bottom it all off, we’d toss the (admittedly fabulous) pumps and put her in something with an open toe or back. If we really wanted to be trendy about it, we’d put her in white shoes, but we’d be terribly conflicted about that. Whatever the choices, she’s got a good dress there but needs to soften everything else considerably, including the makeup.

We’re trying to picture her as Robin Williams’ daughter in her new show and having a really hard time with it. Sure, she’s kind of naturally brittle and fast-talking, but we’re thinking it’s gonna be a hard sell for the audience.
