Years of unhealthy red carpet examinations have taught us that stars rarely ever dress season-appropriate for their public appearances. There are a lot of reasons as to why, like wanting to get your hands on the runway collections the minute they walk out, but a big part of it comes down to deliberately setting yourself apart from others in order to look more interesting somehow. If you’re out somewhere in 20 degree weather and some girl’s parading around in a strapless mini-dress and naked shoes, you’re probably going to notice her above all others. If it’s the holidays and everyone’s dressing in jewel tones, the gal in the neon yellow plaid will stand out in the room. If it’s spring time, then the attention-seeking types will deliberately pick stark black or black-and-white dresses in order to not be confused with all those horribly unimaginative types with their pastels and florals.
Our point? It’s jarring sometimes to see one of them actually dress perfectly seasonally appropriate.
We feel like we should congratulate her somehow.
Having said that, as much as we like the top and the skirt, we wish they were parts of different outfits. We’re not loving the competing, slightly clashy pinks.
