Girl, That’s Not Your Dress: Bella Heathcote in Chanel Couture

Posted on May 25, 2012

Well, Bella, it didn’t take you long, did it?

Are we wrong here? We don’t think so. On the model, the dress looks dramatic and chic. On Bella, it looks heavy and kind of mature. Part of the problem here is the length. The hem is hitting at a much lower point on her and it throws off the whole dress. The bust is pretty unflattering on her too. Basically, even though we can detect no fit problems, the whole thing just looks gigantic on her. She’s a tiny little slip of a thing and doesn’t quite have the presence to make this dress work for her

Girl, pack this thing up and send it along to Christina Hendricks, who we’re pretty sure will fill this thing out in the best possible manner (and who could use all the help she can get). Granted, she might have to get the bust altered, but still.
