Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, we just can’t hate a dress we’re supposed to hate.
We’ve been railing against the overuse of lace and applique for a good while now, but dammit, this dress is cute and chic. We love all the shades of red, which give it a sort of depth and richness it wouldn’t have had if it was all one color. And those reds really suit her own coloring, although strangely, the red of her lips seems like it’s a bit much. Not in love with the Paltrow-esque hair either. In fact all of her styling choices here tend to take a pretty and youthful dress and make it seem as serious as she can make it. Lighten up, honey. You’re a teenager in Valentino winning a mostly pointless award. Have some fun.
