On the model, this is a super-cute look. On Emma, in this setting, it’s not really working for us.

The collar’s too high and fussy for sitting down and a shapeless black dress probably isn’t going to photograph well under less-than-optimal lighting conditions. We’d love to see her wear this on a red carpet, in the daylight. But she’d need to wear her hair up and switch out those shoes for something more fun. This hair is … not great. And the shoes are fab, but the dress feels more modern than that. We actually love the footwear the model’s sporting. It takes the dress to “young” and “cute.” It’s like all Emma’s style decisions were arrived at in order to take the dress to “sophisticated” and “grown up,” but she’s best working the young/cute side of the street.
