Naomie Harris in Valentino at the 2014 NAACP Image Awards

Posted on February 24, 2014

Under the right conditions and on the right gal, a neckline that plunges low enough to give us some idea of how her abs routine is working out for her can actually work.

 

 

Naomie Harris attends the 2014 NAACP Image Awards at Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California in a Valentino dress accessorized with a Rauwolf clutch and H. Stern jewelry.

But this one’s not quite working. Almost everything here is gorgeous, though. The gold looks fantastic on her and the hair and makeup are soft and pretty. But a metallic lace gown is usually enough look on its own without needing to resort to focus-pulling elements like super-plunging necklines. We think a little bit of sexiness is a good idea to keep this from looking like a Christmas tablecloth, but this isn’t quite the way, if for no other reason than the super low neckline paired with a somewhat full skirt looks a little off to us from a proportions perspective. And we see the exact same issue in the picture of the model.

We also think a simple black bag would have been a much better idea.
