Charlize Theron attends the “Mashable 2015 Social Good Summit” at 92Y in New York City.
Darlings, it seems like all the stars collectively decided that this is the exact point in the year where they all get their social conscience on. Maybe it’s a post-Emmys thing, or a #BeMeorDoMe style of attention-seeking through good works. Or maybe they all switched on their empathy programs in unison. Whatever the case or reason, this was apparently the week for all the stars to stand in front of a social problem and wait for their picture to be taken.
So let’s judge them!
Oh, fine. We’ll be nice. 99% of style is knowing the venue and dressing appropriately, so obviously we’re not going to nitpick the hell out of anyone as if they were on the red carpet for their new movie premiere or poledancing for an award. We’re not THAT awful. We’re just going to … offer general notes. Like, for instance… how wrong Charlize’s shoes are here:
For one, they look a little painful. For another they really don’t seem to go with the rest of the look. Then again, nothing in this look seems to go with anything else in this look. It’s like she picked a pretty, floaty dress and decided it needed to be made more “serious” and “kickass” with the addition of shoes and a jacket that really do nothing for it. The dress and a pair of gray sandals or pumps would’ve been fine. If it’s chilly enough for a jacket, then this was not the dress for the day because putting a jacket over it pretty much ruins it.
And that was us, offering gentle, general notes of critique.
