Hmmm.

We’re afraid not, Miss Naomie.

Y’know? Credit to her for going there, because a lot of celeb-ladies wouldn’t, but we’re afraid her risk-taking hasn’t paid off.  The proportions and color scheme are really tough for any non-model to pull off – even a non-model who looks like a model herself. An FMO – For Models Only – ensemble looks great on a professional clothes-wearer for 30 seconds on a runway but tends to have problems in just about any other situation.

We keep wondering if it’s salvageable in some way. What do you guys think? Can this basic ensemble be styled better somehow? Is there a belt or a cuff or a big floppy hat that’ll pull this together and make it somehow work? We’re stumped on that one. We think it definitely needs some high-contrast items and that clutch is not doing the job for it.

But truth be told, we’re more inclined to just write this one off. Pale, pink, pleated pants and a white satin halter. Say THAT one out loud.
