This is like the Magic Eye of dresses. If you stare at it long enough, it turns into a completely different dress.
Mindy Kaling attends the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California in an Edition by Georges Chakra plum gown paired with a Jerome C. Rousseau clutch.
It took us a good while to realize that the wonky bust is supposed to look like a large chain necklace. For the longest time, we were completely focused on the patch of fabric above that detail. It looked like some sort of yoke to us. If you took away that patch and just let the neckline be the top beaded portion of the chain detail, we think this dress would go from awkward to pretty damn chic instantly. Unfortunately, it’s stuck on awkward for the moment. We love the color and the shape of it for her, as well as the little sleeves. Not loving the hair and makeup, though.
