Did Miss Felicity here get Gucci’d or did she Gucci it the F up?

It’s our new theory that we will probably repeat a hundred more times until all y’all beg us to shut up and move on, but for now, we’re all in. See, if you use a design house name as an active verb, it sounds like the wearer really nailed the look. If you use it passively, it sounds like she was victimized by the worst excesses of the brand’s aesthetic.

So, did she Gucci it or was she Gucci’d?

Personally, we think she Gucci’d it. When we think of current Gucci excesses, this is not the style that comes to mind. To get Gucci’d in 2016 is to wear some whimsically embroidered nightgown, not some smartly striped party dress on steroids. No, we think we might just love this look. It’s SUPER-bold and photogenic, it’s unexpected, and it’s got a kind of exaggerated weirdness that she appears to have an ability to pull off.

The shoes strike us as the wrong choice, though. Given the slightly clownish, over-the-top vibe of the dress, this is one instance where we’d have liked to have seen a matchy pump in blue.
