We kinda wish they’d stood there and done the royal hand wave.
Boy, she’s one of those people who look completely different if they just change their hair color, isn’t she? We’re not sure we would have recognized her without being told who she was. It’s a good, smart “modern English rose” kind of choice to go for Erdem in this situation. We think the dress is pretty but it doesn’t really set off her coloring all that well. Pink and yellow is a tough combo to pull off, but it’s especially tough for pale blondes. She’d have been better off with a green or blue version of this dress, if such a thing existed. It’s pretty, though. And we do like the deployment of the darker gold pump. Put it this way: on Claire, this whole look is pretty. On Lupita Nyong’o, it would be stunning. That’s not a mark against Claire so much as it’s an illustration that this dress would do better on a different kind of gal.
Matt looks okay. We’re disappointed by the puddling hem, knit tie and overall banker feel of the look, though. He used to be more stylish than this.
