Felicity Jones in Balenciaga at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards

Posted on January 26, 2015

Many a starlet and ingenue has fallen prey to the siren call of Audrey Hepburn, but very few have managed to pull off her particular brand of mid-Century European chic. It’s Felicity’s turn, and really, we can’t blame her for deploying the Audrey at all, since she’s so suited for it.

HOWEVUH.

It’s just not there yet, hon.

It’s possible we’re being too negative because the reported humidity wreaked havoc on her ‘do, making it look considerably un-Audrey-like in its sloppiness. Even so, that pale pink’s not quite working with her coloring, and that criss-cross neckline seems to be constricting her slightly. Also, her face feels a little underdone

It’s a good effort, but it needed that perfect level of polish to take it to Audrey. And elbow-length white gloves, but Amal probably singlehandedly ruined those for half a generation.
