… but no.

Not even you, girl.

In an instance such as this one, when we are faced with a celebrity in a super-cray ensemble, we always ask ourselves how we’d react if Rihanna were wearing it. Or Helena Bonham Carter. Or Kristen Stewart. If we find ourselves thinking that it might work better on any of those ladies, then it’s a “Girl That’s Not Your Dress” post. If we find ourselves firmly declaring that this shit is cray no matter who’s wearing it, we usually wind up with a “Girl, WHUT?” post.

We are leaning way over into WHUT territory here. The decompression explosion on her right side, the mismatched blacks, the collapsing bodice, the cut of the pants … it’s all TOO MUCH, darling. Christian, we’re big supporters, but this look isn’t working for us.
