We could totally get behind this dress if it was styled right.
Kat Dennings attends the world premiere of “Thor: The Dark World” at The Odeon Leicester Square in London in a vintage Lanvin gown.
Even though the gold skirt looks like a table at a wedding reception.
No, it doesn’t look particularly modern (which is, of course, the whole point with vintage) but it suits her perfectly. She didn’t take it where it needs to go, though. Basically, she needed to Jessica Rabbit this motherfucker up. To be honest, she’s mostly there. The ladies are front and center, she’s got the strong lip and the bling on her wrist. It’s the hair that’s the problem. We’re all for re-interpreting vintage looks through modern sensibilities, but we think this dress pretty much needs to be styled in a literal manner. In other words, she needed the really lacquered Old Hollywood glam-style hair, not the modern, messy, JBF hair. Also, a couple chandelier earrings. If you’re gonna go for it, honey, then really GO FOR IT. Hell, put the opera gloves on. Take one off slowly and throw it into the crowd. Get your Gilda on, girl. You’ve got the looks for it.
