Actress Christina Hendricks attends UCLA’s IoES Gala 2017 in Beverly Hills, California.
We like this, for the most part. The color’s great and the fit and silhouette can’t be beat for her. The extended lace on the hem is annoying and the outfit would be so much better if it ended at the knees, but it’s not a deal-breaker. We like the shoulder treatment too, even if we are just about completely done with seeing lace on a red carpet. As much as we might feel kindly toward this look, however, our first impulse was to just classify it as dull church clothes and move on. She’s acceptably put together, but it’s a little on the boring side for an actress. That was our first impulse, but then we took a look at where she was and figured it would have been pretty dumb of her to show up in something high-fashion or attention-seeking. This is a little on the dull side, but that’s more or less what the situation calls for.
And believe it or not, we think the nude pump works really well for her. She’s had a lot of problems finding shoes that work for her and it seems to us that going for the old “extend the line of the leg” trick is a good option. Unfortunately, the bag and shoes both look a little cheap, but we suppose she felt her textile options were limited for an event with “Sustainability” on the backdrop. Not the time for your marabou feather mules or your mink clutch, we’re thinking.
