Busy Philipps attends the premiere of HBO’s “Vice Principals” at Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles, California.

 

Busy Philipps, you always make us sigh over your fashion choices. We always see you trying, and for that we are appreciative, but it always seems like you get one or two elements lethally wrong, thereby throwing the whole outfit into question.

To wit:

The proportions of the dress are a little awkward and we’d rather see it in a brighter, more summertime color, but the more we look at it, the more it feels like just the kind of dress for her. It’s not perfect, but it could work for her if it’s styled right.

It’s not styled right.

Or at least, it’s not styled to its best advantage. Neither the bag nor the shoes could be considered terrible on their own, but the latter in particular feel like a bad choice both from a color perspective and form a proportions one. The bag just isn’t to our taste. It doesn’t feel very fresh or modern, and those are two things the styling should definitely bring to a dress like this, which can come off a bit old-fashioned.

Also, the top knot’s not a good choice with such a broad, ruffled neckline. Visually, it broadens her shoulders by giving her pinhead.
