We’re not entirely convinced she can pull this color off, but this is her first major appearance since her fiance died and we think the boldly declarative color makes a strong choice for her.

That was clearly the goal and – shiny face aside – we think she nailed it. Whatever quibbles we have are negated by the overall effect, which is striking and lovely.
