IN or OUT: Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott
We really like this dress, but we question whether Nicole’s the gal to wear it.
Nicole Kidman attends Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women Luncheon Presented by Lifetime in a L’Wren Scott dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, Fred Leighton jewelry, and an Omega watch.

Because it’s got this sort of faux/ironic prim thing going on and Nicole’s brand of prim is anything but faux or ironic. Put this dress on someone like – we don’t know… Gwen Stefani, maybe – and she’d find a way to make it look edgy. Put it on someone like Michelle Williams and she’d know how to take the prim and make it hipster-chic. But put it on Princess Grace here, and it just kinda looks like a schoolmarm dress with delusions of disco. At the very least, we would have recommended zhuzhing up her hair and maybe finding some edge in the accessories. If nothing else, wearing a contractually obligated wristwatch and then pairing it with a cuff that kinda looks like a wristwatch was a very odd idea.
IN! Sign me up for PRIM!
OUT! You, dear, are no Serene Highness.
Even the Buffy fans couldn’t rally behind Sarah Michelle Gellar’s bronze peplum, voting it OUT. Hunh. You’d think the Buffy fans would be big supporters of The Bronze.
