Miss Emma, in our opinion, rarely every gets it quite right in her public-appearance style. She’s continuing that trend here, although she did manage to pull out a winner. Let’s gently and lovingly assess, darlings. Like the family (of bitches) we are.

Okay, right off the bat, the shoes are all wrong. If your eyes immediately land on the shoes before even noticing any other part of the ensemble, it has failed and it all must be burned. Or at the very least rethough. The shoes are cute, though, And we have no problem with a red pop of color at the bottom of a basic B&W outfit, but the strappy quality is distracting when combined with that print top, with it’s horrifically unflattering silhouette. Seriously, it’s cut like a crop top for a woman in her third trimester.

This is much better. We don’t love her predilection for wearing so much black because she looks to us like a gal who needs a lot of rich colors in her style choices, but we can’t deny she’s also a gal who does better when she keeps things as simple as possible. Color is just one more thing to get wrong in a red carpet look, which is why the LBD is defaulted to so often.
Anyway, this works for us, due entirely to the choice of shoe and bag. Both finish the look nicely and set it off well. The outfit is so minimalistic that a little focus-pulling in the accessories works in this case.
