Riley Keough’s National Board of Review Gala Dress Has a Secret

Posted on January 05, 2017

Let us stipulate up front that this dress is bringing the cray.




So stipulated. Bow ties worn anywhere but at the neck are always cray. This is a universal fashion truth. (Source: Us) Rip those silly things off.

Further examination reveals some details that could be played up a bit better, however…



The bejeweled flower buttons are kind of cute. They could stay; a few of them, at least.

(Man, we never like saying this sort of thing, but is a manicure not de rigueur when someone lends you a $5000 dress to wear? We’re just asking.)



We go back and forth on the neckline. If we’re going to mentally edit this dress – and it definitely needs editing – then we’re inclined to keep the tricky fringe. Gives it a little edge and keeps it from being a standard LBD.




And to be honest, the sheer/corset details don’t bother us as much as we might have thought. In fact, now that we’re really thinking about it …


The only thing you really need to do to make this dress work like gangbusters is remove the stupid bows and maybe a couple of the buttons. We could see the rest of it working just fine. There’s a cute/sexy dress under the clown regalia.

We’re not co-signing the hair and makeup, though. You guys go ahead and assess that area.

Oh, and switch out the black pumps for a midnight blue, yes? Plays with the blue in the buttons.
