Posted on June 20, 2014

We want to give her all the finger snaps and neck rolls in the world for this, but despite the high glam factor, we’re going to have to withhold them.

There is such a thing as too much trim, you know. We love ourselves some glitzy beading as much as the next two queens, but she’s got two entire crystal chandeliers encircling her armpit and sideboob. It’s not so much the amount of trim or the heaviness of it; it’s the way it’s utilized and placed. And it’s a shame, because when you combine the dress with the jewelry and the bag, it all becomes way too much – but we really like the accessories here. They’d have been shown off to so much better effect if she’d paired them with a much simpler dress.

And girl? We say this with love: It is time to rethink that wig.
