        My most insightful comment.

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          It’s precise.

    • Glam Dixie

      She looks really elegant and pretty, but sort of like she’s a guest at a very fancy wedding.

      • FuhUgh

        Or the upholstery in a very fancy loo at a very fancy wedding.

    • Jen Freeman

      Ver pretty, love the colors and accessories. But that last 4 inches of hem is awful.

      • 3boysful

        Yes. I was thinking, good job!–til I scrolled down. The shoes look comfy, but not like they go with that dress.

        • evave2

          I think it was just “that” much too long but the shoes look like the comfy shoes I wear to go flea marketing.

        • MoHub

          I, too, was doing fine until I got to that hem, which was a big scrolldown “Whuh?”

      • ballerinawithagun

        Such gorgeous fabric does not work with that sort of unfinished hem. And it looks like she has great legs so she have gone with a shorter skirt.

    • MilaXX

      Pretty. I’m not 100% sold on the shoe, but I don’t hate it. I like how the pale blue keeps this from being another blah pale dress.

    • Danielle

      Elegant and pretty, and I even like the clutch.

    • JasmineAM

      Betty Draper holiday party dress. it is very pretty, though.

    • SugarSnap108

      Very pretty. I just don’t care for the styling. The clutch, shoes and earrings are a bit dull/dated and too match-y.

    • hughman

      50’s couch!

      Also, I can see the Pacific Design Center (it’s called “The Blue Whale” here because it’s, um, blue) from the balcony of my apartment here in WeHo. The press helicopters are already in full force and streets are blocked off. Possibly glamorous, maybe. Potentially terrifying, yes.

      • J.W.

        Enquiring minds want to know…

    • Emily Giovanni

      She just looks like a kind person.

      • ireneY

        Yes, very sweet face.

    • gingerella

      There’s something to be said for pretty, and she’s said pretty much all of it.

      • TAGinMO

        “Pretty” often gets the short shrift in red-carpet commentary, which is a shame. Overall, I love this, particularly for a pre-awards-show reception. But I do wonder if maybe a belt and a subtle pop of color in either the clutch or the shoe would have elevated it a bit.

    • Sarah

      Ooh, that’s lovely. I like the delicate color scheme on her, and I like even better that when I saw the top, I scrolled down with trepidation only to be pleasantly surprised that it didn’t end in an A. Boring slit to the thigh gown or B. A short sheath, but rather in a sweet tea length with an interesting hem and a nice clutch with just enough glitter to hold its own.

    • susan6

      It is a pretty dress. It would look completely suitable on my mother when she went to a school dance back in the 50’s. (The nuns might have frowned at the lack of sleeves?) That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but not exactly setting any trends here.

    • Carla_Charlton

      Not a fan of the French tip pedicure.

      • Gatto Nero


    • Kitten Mittons

      Not crazy about the shoes, but otherwise this hits all the right notes. Pretty, classy, and just very lady – like.


      Omigosh I love this dress!

    • Jacob Bowen

      Scroll down NOOOOO! It was actually pretty until I got to the SHEER HEM!

      • Wink

        The sheer hem was a needle scratch, er… nails on a chalkboard… Hmmmm. Since no one plays vinyl or uses chalk any more, I think I need some references that aren’t from the 70s!

    • Alison

      Color me shocked that she is pulling off that length, but here we are. Her face looks good (although it is always a bit jarring to see Anna all made up).

    • Imasewsure

      I don’t love the bottom of the dress but that’s just a personal style thing… very pretty though in spite of the hair and shoes

    • Imasewsure

      She sort of looks like one of the missing Mills sisters (of the Hayley and Juliette variety)…

    • frannyprof

      Not sure about the shoes, but love the dress,hair, and makeup.

    • Sherilyne Cox

      Frock is utterly loverly…..looks fresh and the fit is exceptional.

    • nannypoo

      She looks beautiful. Hate the shoes.

    • Gaby

      An understated and very classy werq. A breath of fresh air, really. Instead of fingersnaps, the elegant snap of a hand fan.

    • marlie

      I’m not in love with the shoes, but I like the dress and I think she looks really pretty. It could be a smidge shorter on her, though.

    • PinkyK

      It’s pretty and don’t we all just want to be pretty?

    • cwade1211

      This whole look is just SO pretty, which sounds like damning with faint praise, but it isn’t. She just is such a pretty girl in a pretty dress! Who wouldn’t want to be her?

    • E. D.

      Nice, but the bag is too matchy.

    • Kelly

      I wish she had a) cut it off above the knee and dispensed with the tulle puffs (or whatever they are) entirely, b) not worn silly-putty shoes, and c) not carried a suede clutch (or that’s what it looks like) with such a delicate, summery dress. Maybe if I saw the dress without the flounce, I’d think it too plain or uninteresting, but I tend to think it would be more chic. Still, I think she looks very good. I like this look much better than when she tries for brassy-haired 60s retro. Not many people could carry off icy-seafoam with pale bronze (or is that gold?), but with her coloring, it’s great.

    • Man Dala

      Beautiful. Face looks gorgeous.

    • SoAnnaPropriate

      Pretty. Clean. Fresh. I even like the sheer hem, because there is the pale blue layer underneath, so it doesn’t look unfinished as most sheer hems do. Unless there is a zucchini in there to nosh on later, the clutch is too big and heavy.
      Overall a refreshing cleanser after the VMA whatthefuckery.

    • Little_Olive

      I swear I’ve seen couches lil that at Laura Ashley. C’mon, Jane. You are so nice.

    • DollyMadisonWI

      Love that it’s so sweet.

    • demidaemon

      The pattern and fabric is a little mumsy, but, somehow, it looks great on her.

    • livesarah

      Something about this is very ageing. The colours/pattern on the dress? The makeup?

    • RescueMe23

      Pretty – but too bridal

    • Miss Atomic

      Absolutely beautiful. I think the shoes could be different – maybe a more dainty/strappy sandal.

    • Kathie

      I would have cut this dress a smidge shorter. Other than that she looks lovely and elegant.

    • Fred Vaughn

      Fresh like summer peaches…

    • padma sallah

      This is such a sight for sore eyes. Very pretty.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      I kind of love this.

    • HeisenbergHattie

      My opinion. She did not expect to win, so she dressed for easy beauty & easy comfort. Very pretty. Looks like something that would work all evening without becoming tragic and/or uncomfortable.

    • carlatheviking

      Love the dress, hate the shoes.

    • LibKat

      Scroll down FUG. Beautiful hair and make up. Nice dress until you reach the hiddy hem flounce. Bad bag and shoes.
