Okay, you guys. We’re definitely going to need a ruling on this one. Down your Red Bull and roll up your sleeves. It’s judging time.
We know. It’s a lot to take in. Give yourself a minute.
Okay, here are the pros, as we see them: It’s boldly weird, which is exactly how a ladystar should dress for her superhero or sci-fi premiere. It’s got the rich color of a comic book and the shimmer of a spaceship. Well done on that front. Second, the color is very on trend, as we told you last week, and it looks pretty damn fabulous on her. Third, a couple of good styling choices help sell it. Both the braid and the sandals are great choices.
Now, here are the cons: It’s pretty damn goofy-looking, no? She’s giving it a lot of fierceness with her posing and attitude, but the design is just plain weird. Fringe and sequins are a dicey combination in any instance, but when you combine them in such odd ways – basically, by slapping random sequin panels amongst all the fringe – it’s more head-scratching than fabulous to us. And her makeup doesn’t really go with the dress, does it? We hate to be backed into a corner where we wind up telling a lady she’s supposed to be piling more slap on, but such a bold, bright, shimmery dress requires a face played up to it; especially when the hairstyle is severe and does nothing to frame her from the front. Girlfriend needs way more dramatic eyes and lips than that for this look.
Alrighty, then. We have fully assessed this, top to bottom. And we still could go either way with our opinion on it. This is, once again, where you darling little opinionated minxes come in.
