The coffee hasn’t quite kicked in yet so we fear our reaction to this is not to be trusted.
We don’t hate it. We just feel like it’s a good idea that isn’t rendered quite as well as it could be. Smartly (and somewhat wittily), she came to the premiere of this film dressed like she’s running an art gallery. Seriously. This looks like a costume for a character rather than a real outfit, in a lot of ways. It’s very much an image-oriented look that ties to the film she’s promoting. Since there’s practically an entire chapter of our book devoted to that very practice, we are duty bound to at least respect the attempt.
But we don’t know, you guys…
It’s just not setting us on fire. For one, the word “voluminous” comes to mind. Certainly, a dress in this style doesn’t need to be tight or fitted, but our overall impression of the look is how … blankety it looks. The drab color isn’t helping mitigate that effect. Plus those matching cuffs bug. One would have been enough. Two means you just couldn’t figure out what to wear on the other wrist.
