Charlize Theron attends the premiere of Universal Pictures’ “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood, California.
We wonder if there’s some sort of bug motif in the film. We can’t recall any such thing from the first one. Still, this is the second time she’s gone out with insects all over her this week. It’s officially a thing with her.
And we don’t like it.
We’ve been ranting about all the forced whimsy going on in fashion right now, and while this is somewhere along the same lines, we’d say there’s a fair amount of wit in the design – if you stand far enough away from it. Stand too close and the whimsical little bugs disappear because all you can see is the illusion netting, which never stops giving off the whiff of ballroom dancing and ice skating costumes. We’re also not much digging the harness and pulley system that appears to make up the back of the dress. And when you take away the gimmicks, you’re left with a dull LBD and perfunctory styling.
We hates it, kittens.
