Grab your coffee and meet us in the conference room, girls. We’ve got work to do. Also: there’s a muffin platter.

Okay, first: that dress looks a bit mature and old-fashioned to our eyes. Second: those off-matchy (a term we just made up) shoes are rage-inducing.

HOWEVUH.

This is one of the better dresses we’ve seen her wear. From the front, it’s really flattering, and the color looks great on her. So here’s our task for today: restyle this look. We grant you the powers of a really bitchy, A-list stylist who can get away with demanding alterations.

We’ll start:

Relax that neckline so it doesn’t look like it’s choking her, get rid of the weird butt-cape effect, shorten the sleeves, and raise the hem. Burn those horrid blue shoes and put her in a bright floral-patterned pump. Jewelry-wise, we’re thinking diamond bracelet, but we’re not sure what to do about the ears, or whether or not she should sport a cocktail ring. We’re not crazy about the hair, but if she wears it up, this instantly goes “Lucille Ball” and it’s not really the kind of dress that calls for a ponytail or Pinterest braid.

Your thoughts? Because we know you have some.
