We’re starting to think this gal is getting bad advice. She never quite seems to style herself right.

We think this dress really suits her in a lot of ways. She’s got the looks to pull off its sort of prim qualities and still make them look chic. But the styling needed to be impeccable and to offer some punctuation points. She needed a far more polished and dramatic head than that, for starters. Head-turning hair and makeup for a dress like this. Also, she needed a kick-ass kind of clutch and one, maybe two statement jewelry pieces. She really could’ve turned this into something dramatic, but as it is, she just looks like a Puritan who got a little hot and removed her sleeves. Just before getting stoned for being a sleeveless strumpet. Okay fine; we didn’t think that comparison through, but you get what we mean.
