Felicity Jones Tries to Escape Her Dress Chrysalis at the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” Beijing Premiere

Posted on December 22, 2016

Felicity Jones attends the premiere of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” in Beijing, China.


We’re not usually given to such fannish outbursts (except in cases where the names Tilda or Lupita are prominent), but these are hard times for two such hard-working and bitchy celebrity fashion bloggers such as we. As we count down the days until Santa’s birthday, fewer and fewer famous people are inclined to forego carbs for another 12 hours just so they can fit into a borrowed dress to promote their latest project. The red carpetry pickins are distressingly slim, is what we’re saying.

Felicity’s riding the Star Wars train at this moment, which makes it the biggest one of her career, so she has to Bob-Cratchit her way through the holidays, it would seem. If there’s a step-and-repeat anywhere in the world, she’s scheduled to walk it. Disney’s signing the checks now and that means a poledance like she’s never poledanced before.

But that’s not why we’re wishing blessings upon her this Christmastide. No, kittens.




It’s because she wore something completely insane and horrifically ugly, which makes our jobs so much easier. We’re so glad we decided to wait until Monday to start our Best and Worst of 2016 lists. We’re still compiling, but girlfriend may just have secured herself a spot.

It’s just such a stunning array of spectacularly bad design choices, from the textile to the flounce to the ugly neckline and designed-to-make-you-look-droopy seaming.

If you step away and cock your head, it almost looks like she’s molting a really ugly dress and soon we’ll get to see the much nicer and sleeker one underneath it. Except it looks like she’s being attacked by random jewel bugs.

Between this and Nicole Kidman’s dress the other day, we feel confident in declaring it time for Erdem to sit the hell down and ponder shit for a while. You people are way the hell off track.
