It is simply impossible not to smile at these pictures. Miss Lady is having herself a career moment AND she’s feeling how she looks, quite clearly. It’s a trite thing to say, but that makes it no less true: happiness and confidence do more to sell a look than anything else.

But if we must assess (and we must), it seems like the top and skirt are kind of fighting for dominance here. She looks really good, but we can’t help thinking both items would be better for her if they were paired with something else. It’s the competing horizontal and vertical lines. But they both look great on her, as do the shoes. And the hair is just plain fabulous.
