Emily Blunt in Roland Mouret at the 2014 IWC Gala

Posted on October 08, 2014

Ladies, which color is trickier to pull off: peach or mauve? We lean toward peach, just because it seems like we have more memories of horrifying peach dresses than we do of horrifying mauve ones.

For instance:

This is a pretty orangey peach, but even so. With the white accent (provided by the weird-as-hell bust) and the gold jewelry (which looks kind of gaudy), it’s eye-searing. Terrible color combination, unless you’re a creamsicle. Also, we hereby declare war on the red carpet top knot. It’s becoming ubiquitous. Yesterday we got a call from a reporter asking for some quotes about the overuse of the naked shoe on the red carpet, which makes us feel like our work there is drawing to a close. Time to pick a new target and start bitching until the reporters come calling.

Or wait, is it chartreuse that’s the hardest to pull off? Puce?
