Lupita Nyong’o in Alexander McQueen at the 2014 Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Posted on June 02, 2014

Hmmm. We’re not sure how to intro this one. Is it:

It’s Monday morning! You need a shot of Lupita in your life!

Or is it:

It’s Monday morning and maybe we should’ve started off with something less upsetting because this is going to hurt you.

Because look: She’s stunning and it would be almost impossible to make her look bad but…ooof:

No. We’re sorry, but we can’t. The dress is working fine (although that neckline’s a little broad), but all the accessory choices are making us wince.  The shoes are … okay, we suppose. We don’t much like the design but we could possibly see them working with a different outfit. Not this outfit, though. The shoes are too heavy with too much of an edge to work with the dress. Your eyes go straight to the floor. And that super-matchy Barbie purse is just awful. Nothing says “little girl” like a purse that matches your dress exactly. And then there’s that hat. We think we might have cried a little at the sight of it. We’re starting to think she needs to hire an accessories advisor. We volunteer.
