We’re ashamed to admit this – because we adore this gown now – but our initial bitchy assessment was that it looked like a sparkly ironing board cover. Yes, that’s awful. In our defense, we were caught up in the moment. The world of red carpet live-tweeting is a death race, darlings. You’re shooting your mouth off all over the place, demanding that everyone pay attention to you and your opinions on these life-and-death matters, when suddenly you stick your foot in your mouth. It wasn’t until this morning that we got a good look at these pictures and realized what a wonderful and unique look it is for the red carpet. The problem for Ellie is that all the rich colors are down near the bottom of the dress when her own coloring could’ve used some of those deep blues up around her face. Still, it’s a gown that sneaks up on you. We can certainly understand why she opted to go without them, given the broiling heat of the red carpet, but it’s a shame we couldn’t see her try the sleeved version, which we like a bit more than this.
