Someone really needs to alert Cher that there’s been an inadvertent style retrospective of her life going on in the red carpet world lately. Suddenly, bold, slinky, and stomach-baring looks are all the rage. You’ve got to admit, if there’s anyone who deserves the much-overused “style icon” designation, it’s Cher.
Unfortunately, this one’s not quite working for us.

Kaufmanfranco Spring 2014 Collection
This may be a FMO (For Models Only) dress, because if a glamazon like Miss Stacy can’t make it work off the runway, then we doubt anyone can. There’s something weird going on with the waist here. And the white doesn’t really set her off all that well. And sure, she’s got a bod to beat the band (whatever that means), but that bodice isn’t really showing her assets off to their best effect.
Of course she’s gorgeous and we wouldn’t try to argue that she looks horrible here, but it looks amazing on the model and decidedly less so in the so-called “real world” of celebrity red carpet appearances. We think the slit of that skirt really needs to be pinned back, the way it is on the runway. But you’ve got to be in the mood for showing off serious skin if you go that route and apparently, Stacy hit her limit with the bathing suit-like top half. Bottom line: it’s just not coming together like it should. Girl, that’s not your dress.
