The shape is great; we’ll give it that. And if this look is working at all, it’s working because of that silhouette and her striking looks, because the rest of it – from the color, to the over-embellishment, to the overdesigned frippery of it all – just looks terrible to us. It looks like a dress made out of a duvet cover with a ton of craft store embellishments hot-glued to it.
Besides, even if we liked this dress, we’d probably still be ambivalent about the look overall, because she’s totally Pulling a Jolie here. “Brush my hair, wash my face, put on a hundred-thousand-dollar gown. Done.”
Seriously, honey; it’s Givenchy couture. You couldn’t manage a bolder lip and some earrings?
