Lucy is sending us a secret message.
Shut up. It’s totally true.
Lucy Liu attends the 2014 Ignite Gala at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House in New York City in an Andrew Gn grey dress with bejeweled pockets paired with Nicholas Kirkwood sandals and a Jimmy Choo clutch.
We gently chided her recently for having very little in the way of range to her style. But because she’s so consistently stylish and gets it right so often, we couldn’t work up too much anger. Maybe that should be our approach from now on; gently reminding the stars they look like crap instead of yelling at them. It certainly worked in this case, because Miss Lucy clearly took our words to heart.
Shut up. She totally did.
You see, we bemoaned her reliance on stark and simple black-and-white looks with very little in the way of embellishment, and now, here she is, BUSTING OUT in … grey, black and white. Which doesn’t sound like much, but wait! There’s beading! On adorable little paisley pockets! Plus: tricky-ass shoes! Polka dots! A funky neckline! Girlfriend is cocking an eyebrow at us and saying “SIMPLE? Bitches, step off.”
This is such a fabulously chic little look without being tricky or obnoxious about it. It’s got just enough glitter to it to give it some glamour, and just enough design elements to keep your eyes entertained, while maintaining that low-key chic vibe that Miss Lucy prefers. Tasteful and head-turning at the same time. Attagirl. Everyone wants to be you.
