We wanted so badly to like this. And we’re pretty sure, somewhere among our hundreds of tweets last night, you can find us praising it in a non-specific way. But in the light of day, we’re going to have to walk back from any positive feelings we had about it in the moment.

This:

Is pretty much most of the coverage we saw. It wasn’t until we got a load of the entire look from top to bottom that we changed our mind. First, the color is a bit on the drab side for her own coloring. This color belongs on someone with a darker complexion to really pop. Second, as the photo directly above proves (to our eyes, at least), the bust is pretty enough. It’s everything south of it that looks bad, particularly the half-assed peplum and the virtually unworkable hem length. The shoes are all wrong too. That length of hem called for something a little more delicate and neutral. And we get that she’s kinda sorta referencing her Rey hair here, but this look needed some serious support from the styling and this just isn’t doing it. She’s pretty enough to overcome a lot of what we’re bitching about here, but when we take a step back and put on our judging glasses, the overall look is not good.
