Well, it’s dramatic; we’ll give it that.

We suppose the fact that she’s in Dubai renders any “IT’S DECEMBER” critiques about non-seasonal clothing kind of moot. Still, it’s jarring to us to see something so exuberantly “spring” at this time of year.

We… don’t think we like it? It’s a little hard to tell, because our eyes are focused on one detail and one detail alone: that strip of belly skin. Girl, you best make sure the waistband on your skirt is perfectly fitted if you’re going to attempt a crop-top on the red carpet. It’s just a tiny bit tight and it gives the illusion of  muffin top.  And frankly, that shade of yellow is doing her no favors. Too bad, because her hair and makeup look great. Ironically, with all the complaining we’ve been doing about the ubiquity of the color on our red carpets, we think this might have looked much better on her in black – so long as it was fitted correctly. By the way, we realize this is a little outside our lane, but shouldn’t the stars be boycotting events in Dubai? The human rights record regarding gays and women is pretty damn indefensible.
