It’s awards season, which means we’re bound by law to feature Sandy every day. Possibly.
“Gravity” star Sandra Bullock attends the BAFTA Los Angeles 2014 Awards Season Tea Party in Burberry Prorsum.

MAJOR points for sassiness and personality. It is, perhaps, just a little bit cringe-worthy in a “Pip-pip! Cheerio! Isn’t that what you guys say?” sort of way. Not that it wasn’t a good idea to wear an iconic British brand to a BAFTA party, but she’s only a few degrees shy of showing up wrapped in a Union Jack. What we’re saying is, this flirts a little bit with being too on point.
We wish she hadn’t slung the purse on her shoulder like that for pictures, though. And the addition of the necklaces doesn’t feel very … modern, somehow. We like the shirt better without the too-obvious attempt to dress it up. It’s chic and fun enough to stand on its own. That skirt really helps to bump it up, although that pleat doesn’t look so great. We suppose a straight up and down pencil skirt would have looked odd with a t-shirt, but it seems like you’d have to be model-sized to make this skirt work. And we might as well say that the pumps render a playful outfit a little too close to business-like. We think it needs more adventurous shoes than that. Basically, a really fun attempt that really suits her, but isn’t quite styled to its best effect. The accessories are all either too mature or too business-like.
