Gotta give kudos to Michael Costello, late of Project Runway. He’s really made a name for himself on the red carpet and that’s not an easy thing to do, otherwise, a couple dozen other Project Runway alums would’ve managed it by now. His stuff is almost always not to our taste nor do we ever find it to be chic or fashion-forward in any way. Basically, he’s operating in a toned-down Bob Mackie mode; glamorously sparkly dresses for celebrity ladies attending showbiz events. Like Mackie, his style ranges from the tacky to the staid. Unlike Mackie, we’ve never seen anything from him that really popped our socks off. But he’s early in his career so maybe more creative dresses are yet to be found in him.

As for this one, it’s fine. She looks fantastic in it. The earrings and clutch are perfectly chosen and the head styling is gorgeous. Basically, it’s a very good, if somewhat basic dress that’s being turned into a show-stopper by fantastic styling and a charismatic wearer.
