We’re tired of judging her as part of a couple. We’re feminists, darlings. We believe in judging women harshly ON THEIR OWN.
No, no. Sit yourselves down, little ladies. No need to rise up as one and applaud our sensitivity.
The reason we want the lace dress trend to die die DIE PLEASE GOD WOULD YOU JUST KILL IT ALREADY is not just because we think they look either bridal or funereal (and thus totally in appropriate for the red carpet) depending on the wearer and the color of the lace, it’s because after years of this trend (Seriously: is this not the longest lasting fashion trend ever?), we have absolutely nothing left to say except how much we want it to die.
This looks drab against her coloring and the shape is boring. Also: weird hair.
You know what? We’re just gonna say it. We don’t think anyone else has. Her style’s not that great. She’s very cute and has a great personality. When all the stars are in alignment, she can step out looking amazing and we think such “she got it right” appearances tend to generate so much good will that we’re all making excuses for her. The fact of the matter is, we dislike what she’s wearing roughly eight times out of ten. Most of the time, it’s not because we hate the look. What she’s got on here is kind of groovy-fabulous. But she constantly chooses things that simply don’t suit her. All the credit in the world for switching it up so much and dressing a little outside the box, but after all this time, we think her style is largely undeveloped. She has a fondness for trying odd and off the beat things, but she has no through-line in her style; no sense that she knows where her strengths lie. It’s just a lot of random outfits and every once in a while, she hits one that looks great on her. It’s a constant case of “Girl, that’s not your dress” with her.
In other words, this looks awful on her, but we suspect someone like, say, Kerry Washington could really make it sing.
