Maggie Gyllenhaal in Lanvin at the 2014 BAFTA Awards

Posted on February 18, 2014

For once, we’re not gonna yell at Maggie for not putting the effort in on her style and showing up on a red carpet looking like a retired schoolteacher who just finished her gardening for the day. No, while there are definitely things here to critique…

Lack of effort is not one of them. And that ain’t no gardening dress.

But it is kind of an awkward dress. The color looks amazing on her – really sets off her face beautifully – but that vest-like, WAY over-embellished bodice does nothing for her figure. And the sleeves make it look like she’s showing off her tats. Nothing wrong with showing them off, but this would not be the type of dress for doing so, to our way of thinking. Besides, those’d be some weird-looking tats. The skirt is our favorite part of the look, but there’s pretty much nothing we like about the bodice. Put some real sleeves on that thing and we’d like it more, but we’d still think it was heavy and shapeless.
