Christina Hendricks in Zac Posen at the Variety Studio

Posted on May 30, 2014

It’s almost June and if you’re a celebrity, you know what that means!

Big, heavy, long-sleeved dresses! Break ’em out, girls!

This is dramatic and pretty – and it almost looks good on her – but we can’t really sign off on it. As we said, it’s way too heavy and off-season for this time of year. Even if she’s chilly, there are better options than something that would look perfect for a Christmas party. And besides, we’re not convinced she’s served well by adding volume up near her neck and bust. It looks a little bit better in the portrait, when it’s clearly been arranged and styled, but the minute she sits down, all that fabric shifts up. Great color, though. They styling’s pretty good too. Love the ring – and for once, she’s wearing shoes that don’t make us wince. If it was November we might be more forgiving, but even then, we’d probably tell her this was Not Her Dress.
