That red looks amazing on her. She’s shown an aversion to saturated colors in the past, but we’d love it if this signaled her getting over it. We don’t like shawls. Sorry, ladies. They’re fine in less formal, work-a-day settings, but we hate them paired with cocktail dresses like this. You have to be superhumanly stylish to make one not go sloppy before the night is over. And it’s a shame, because she wouldn’t have needed a shawl if she’d stuck with the original sleeve length. She favors this short sleeve a lot, and it does suit her, but we don’t like the band of black cutting across the top without the red balancing it out on the arms. And the different-colored linings are making our eyelids twitch.
