Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Gucci at 2015 Golden Globe Award Season Celebration

Posted on November 21, 2014

Ah, the leather dress. Many a young ladystar falls prey to its siren call, only to have the cruel truth reveal itself to them: virtually none of womankind was ever meant to wear a leather dress. If fashion was a video game, then the leather dress represents the highest possible difficulty setting.

So of course this one nails it on her first try.

Bow down, mortals.

We’ll say she had a leg up in the competition, based on the fact that this is an unusually pretty leather dress. The color looks amazing on her and it actually fits her better than the runway model. And as per uzh, her head is glorious. Loving the hair; loving the eye makeup.

Disappointments: super-matchy makeup case clutch and silver pumps, which feel a little … expected.
