Thom Browne is one of those designers who gets a lot of T Lo Love but not a lot of love from their Bitter Kittens. Understandable. His work is literally designed to be odd and vaguely discomfiting. It’s almost never a good fit for the red carpet, partially because most celeb-ladies can’t really work his kind of look and partially because most red carpets are extremely conformist, seeing as how they’re marketing exercises (with a ton of money behind them).
But Naomie’s not only one of those ladies who can make Thom Browne’s stuff work, she’s also a celeb-lady who’s been in something of a style slump, as far as we’re concerned. We won’t lie; we pretty much squealed with delight at this one. She’s back in fine form and she’s sporting something that – to these jaded red-carpet-weary eyes, at least – looks fresh and different from all the usual fare. We could see the argument that the shoes are a bridge too far and we admit that the proportions aren’t the most flattering in the world, but we absolutely love this on her.
But as always, the Kittens get the final word:
