IN or OUT: Michelle Rodriguez in Ariella Couture

Posted on October 18, 2012

We have a problem with this look, but uncharacteristically, we can’t quite put our finger on why.


Michelle Rodriguez attends the Hollywood Costume Ball at Victoria & Albert Museum in London, England in an Ariella Couture gown.

Ariella Couture ‘Simone’ Dress

It just looks – we don’t know … kind of standard and uninspired maybe? Like, you’re Michelle Rodriguez, and sure, maybe you’re not the kind of superstar that has Karl Lagerfeld falling all over himself trying to get you into a gown, but don’t you have more interesting options than this? Nothing against Ariella, which is a British fashion company with a decent history, but this just feels kind of bleh. It’s a black mermaid gown with black lace insets. Just writing that description is putting us to sleep. It doesn’t help that her hair looks practically un-styled and she’s wearing no jewelry of any note. In fact, what little jewelry she has, paired with that hair, would look perfectly fine with a t-shirt and jeans. We know she likes to cultivate this sort of “too cool for couture” kind of image, but hey, you’re the one at the gala in a gown, honey. Might as well take it all the way.

Are we being cranky bitches or is this totally underwhelming?
