Can’t fault this gal for being inconsistent, that’s for sure.

We don’t hate it. Our impulse would be to break the pieces up, but this is her style and at some point, you have to accept that, if the person is good about expressing their style and does so in a consistent manner. We’ll save our critiques for her accessorizing: those shoes look Payless and that bag is way too big and focus-pulling for the red carpet. We can buy that she’s probably not the type to walk around with a tiny little clutch in her hand all night. And we’re not opposed to a bag with a strap. But the giant tassles and the thick strap make it somewhat focus-pulling in an outfit that has more than enough things to focus on.

But we’re not gonna beat around it: everything north of her neck is terrible. Forget makeup. If you don’t want to wear it, or you only like the barest amount, we’re not gonna be bitches about it. But if minimal (or no) makeup’s your thing, and you know you’re picture’s being taken, and you dressed up in a no-doubt expensive outfit that was no-doubt loaned to you, then come on, girl. Get your hair out of your face. We’re not asking for sparkle or anything, but you’re all dressed up at a charity event getting your picture taken. This isn’t the debate team portrait for the yearbook.
