Did we just not get this dress?
Julia Roberts attends the 86th Annual Academy Awards held at the Dolby theater in Hollywood, California in a Givenchy dress accessorized with Bulgari jewelry.
Because it seemed like the initial social media response to it was overwhelmingly positive and that puzzled us because we weren’t feeling it at all. Granted, it’s no disaster, and Julia’s one of those lucky people who happens to look amazing in black, but we hate the peplum and we really hate the lacey neckline. The whole thing looks so fussy in a very non-Julia Roberts kind of way. After all, “fussy” isn’t a word we’d ever think to use to describe her style. And that shape is doing nothing for her.
Girl, That’s Not Your Dress. Pack it up and ship it off to … we don’t know… someone super-tiny and super serious. Kristen Chenowith in a bad mood or something. Natalie Portman in a funk. The point is, it’s not working for you, dear, and you need to set it free on the wind so it can find the lady who should be wearing it.
On the other hand, we kind of love the hair.
