This feels like a perfect marriage of dress and wearer to us.
Lizzy Caplan attends the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California in a Valentino gown from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection paired with an AS29 ear cuff and bracelet.
Butterflies, by virtue of being a mainstay of tween girl decor, homemade artwork and middle school style for decades, can be very tricky to pull off on a grown woman. She’s got just the right sort of wry edginess to make it work, and just the right looks for it, too. We couldn’t see this working on, say, Gwyneth Paltrow, for example. On the other hand, it’s exactly the kind of risky dress we’d love to see on Angelina.
But that’s beside the point, because Lizzy looks amazing in it. Don’t much love the hairstyle, but we appreciate the attempt to do something with a little edge to it. LOVE that bracelet. So much, that we wish she’d saved it for an outfit that really sets it off. That’s just the kind of jewelry all the ladystars who prefer the current plain-white-dress trend should be reaching for.
