Miss Lady is shutting it all down, by serving up FACE, BODY, FIERCENESS…

Damn. Now that’s a shame.

It’s a gorgeous look that shows off her body to perfection (except for showing more of it than she bargained for) and perfectly blends a cool, low-key color and silhouette with some very Cookie-like sparkle. Unfortunately, we get the impression that it only looks good on her when she’s posed exactly like she is for most of the above pictures. When she alters her pose even slightly, you can see how hard she’s working to pull this all together – literally.

It’s a stunning look for pictures, but it strikes us as extremely difficult to wear for any other situation, like breathing, walking, sitting or eating, for instance. And even in a posed picture situation, she couldn’t keep things together, so to speak. It’s a killer look, but we’re thinking it’s purely FMO – For Models Only. This should spend 40 seconds walking a runway and then put behind glass to admire.
