Style File: Thandie Newton Makes the Rounds in Chanel, Osman and Erdem

Posted on February 16, 2017

Miss Lady has been BUSY lately. But surprisingly, she hasn’t always been on point.

Okay, it’s fun and colorful, we suppose. We don’t know if we’d recommend going to a semi-formal party covered in cars and we’re not entirely on board with the color story either, but those are just personal bitches on our part. It’s fun and colorful. That’s half the battle. Two things, though: first, the bust is a little wonky. Second, you get to pick free Chanel and you pick THAT?

We seem to be asking that second question a lot lately. Granted, the pickings get slimmer at this time of year, what with awards season and all.

This is nice enough, but we really don’t like the design of the bust. It sits too low and it’s too tricky and angular. A slightly more conventional, less Westwood-esqye bust would’ve helped.

This may get us in trouble, but we’re super not-crazy about near-waist-length hair draped over the front of a garment.

NAILED IT.

The dress is perfect for her and the hair is perfect for the dress. The makeup is on point without being a focal point and the subtle jewelry keeps things dressy without making them fussy. Because the dress has all that stuff going on we the neckline and sleeves, any attempts to style this look too much was going to risk overpowering it. This is all very well chosen and rendered.
