It surprises us how much we like this dress.
If there’s one thing we can’t stand in ladyfashion, it’s too-tricky skirts, and this is one of the trickiest we’ve seen in a while. We hate sheers over minis and the thought of adding a ruffled peplum on top of that should make us collapse dramatically to the floor in protest. But we actually think this is kind of cute. We don’t like the hair ribbon (in fact, we hate it), the belt or the jewelry, but the dress itself is a good choice for her; up-front sexy but also girly and (to use a really old-fashioned word) coquettish. We’d have styled this much differently. It could have been chic on her without all the foofaraw added. And her makeup’s too heavy. Cleaner face, paler lip, played down belt and jewelry, pale silver shoes. There you go.
Your turn, darlings. Play with your Katy Perry paper doll. What would you change?
