Posted on May 19, 2014

Hit it, Ro. We’re fixing’ to judge ya.

On someone else, we’d probably declare the combination of that dress with those shoes to be officially “Too much.” But her looks practically beg for extreme styling. She can handle a lot being thrown on her and this combination, which we reiterate, would be tough for most to pull off, isn’t even causing her to break a sweat. This is entirely within her wheelhouse. And honestly? It’s how she should dress more often. There’s something almost comic-booky about her looks, so she should embrace BAM! POW!-style fashion. We’re digging the hair.

On the flipside:

We think this kind of proves our point. It’s not a bad dress. In fact, it would look gorgeous on a lot of ladies. But it goes bleh on her because she really responds better to bold, bright and graphic, rather than lacy and somewhat delicate. And that lip color is heinous. Looking at the first set of pics, she not only responds well to bold, bright and graphic fashion, but it looks better on her when she keeps her face relatively clean.

There you go, girl. Your style brief for the next decade. You’re welcome.
