We can never quite get a handle on what Miss Tracee is doing with her style choices.

For instance, we look at this getup and we see a common theme of her style play out. She likes glamorous, attention-seeking, sexy fashion for a red carpet situation, but she tends to pair it with the hippy-flavored earth mama head-styling she seems to favor. There’s a way to do Boho Glam, but it doesn’t mean picking a disco dress and styling your head like Maya Angelou. That much boob and glitter calls for at least a strong lip if not an accompanying smokey eye. And since heavy makeup never seems to be her thing – which is good, because she looks gorgeous when she keeps it clean – we’re starting to think it’s her style of dress that seems to be the issue. She can find herself plenty of pretty, glittery, afro-hippy or just plain old boho styles that would suit her fabulously on the RC. This dress, fabulous as it is, doesn’t go with that head, gorgeous as it is.

Miss Tracee, this is Not Your Dress. Ship this dress off to Meryl Streep and lets get you in some Anna Sui or something, pronto.
