You know why we get frustrated with her sometimes on the style front? It’s because, despite her many style missteps, every once in a while she nails it so hard it’ll take your breath away. Case in point:
BAM. Now, THAT is some COAT PORN, kittens. And while something like this could go in either a too-precious or too “elderly socialite” direction depending on the styling, we think the Killer Klassic pumps are punctuating the look perfectly in a chic, understated way while the leather collar adds just enough of an edge to keep it interesting. It’s a really stunning look. Honestly? One of our favorites of the year so far. It’s kind of a shame she didn’t wear this on the red carpet. Granted, getting ladystars to wear outerwear on the red carpet is akin to getting boystars to wear kilts.
And speaking of that leather collar…
Personally, that’s a little bit too much in the way of a side cutout for sitting down on television, but it’s a pretty fantastic LBD otherwise. Love the shape of it.
What do we think of her hair color? We’re not in love. It’s got that flat, brassy, drugstore hair dye look to it.
