We’re very much over the whole “over-embellished random whimsy” thing that the fashion world is obsessed with at the moment. And we can’t truly say that this dress represents one of the better iterations of the trend or that it suits Nicole particularly well. All the sparkles and butterflies near the neckline are distracting and look silly to us. The rest of it looks like a badly done Paint-By-Numbers attempt.

HOWEVUH…

We’re surprised by how much positivity we’re feeling toward this look. It’s not right for her and it’s a trend we wish would go away, but we think Nicole might do well with a little bit more of a dark fantasy vibe in her red carpet style. This isn’t quite what we’d want to see, but it’s one of the more interesting things she’s worn in some time. This might be a direction worth exploring for her.
