Oh, Audrey. Why’d you have to go and pick this Prada?
Because when one reads the phrase “Audrey Tautou in Prada,” one might assume that one is about to get hit in the face with international style and fabulosity. Instead you look like you took off your jacket and switched out your shoes so you could hit happy hour after work with the girls. Even worse, you have succumbed to the “wearing leather in July” trend. We would have thought you’d had more sense than that.
Then again, she’s never as chic as we always hope she’ll be. In the style department, when she’s at her very best, she’s just okay. We can’t ever recall seeing her in anything jaw-dropping or so overwhelmingly chic that we drop to our knees and shout “HUZZAH!” Which is a thing we may or may not do when other people aren’t around.
Put bluntly, when it comes to style, she never quite lives up to that face.
We keep trying and trying with this look, but nope. It’s a beige leather dress. Even the words sound unfabulous. No one ever says, “I”m putting my beige leather dress on and HITTING THE TOWN.” or “It’s our anniversary. Put on the beige leather dress.” Somehow, the purple accents just make it worse.
