Posted on October 06, 2015

“Cinderella” and “Downton Abbey” star Lily James attends a photo call for “War and Peace” as part of MIPCOM 2015 on La Croisette in Cannes, France. “War and Peace is a bold, refreshing and modern take on one of the most famous and epic stories of all time encompassing huge themes of love and war, life and death. Featuring a star-studded line-up including Paul Dano (12 Years A Slave), Lily James (Downton Abbey) and James Norton (Happy Valley), the series was filmed in Russia, Latvia and Lithuania.”

Ooof. Honey, no.

We can take everything above the waist, in terms of shape. That totally ’80s turquoise-and-purple color combo is not our favorite thing in the world but we’d be okay with it if things didn’t go pear-shaped – literally – below the waist. In other words, just about the only thing we would have accepted in order to make that top half work would have been a simple black pencil skirt. The fullness of the skirt, combined with the heavy material, high waist and dicey colors, just doesn’t work for us at all. The proportions cut her up into chunks and make her look shorter and wider than she is. The more we look at it the more we’re convinced it’s a truly awful look for her. Honey, you’re so much prettier than this. Burn it.
