It’s not a totally unfamiliar feeling for us, being confused over a Drew Barrymore ensemble. She’s not necessarily a red carpet disaster, but she’s worn more than her fair share of headscratchers in front of the cameras.
We’ve never been confused about her quite this way before.
We’re used to loopy, hippy-dippy, earth mama Drew. We’re not used to fetishwear Drew.
Putting aside tonal aspects for a second, let’s focus on the dress, which starts off well at the top, goes a little weird round the hips, and ends with an overall feeling of incompatibility with Miss Drew. In other words, it’s a “Girl, That’s Not Your Dress” kind of thing. The puffy sleeves, silhouette and bow just don’t seem like her deal – and she looks like she knows that. These shots look like someone working hard rather than WERQing hard, if you know what we mean.
And we are completely befuddled by the leg-and-foot situation. The stockings are fine; sexy and fun. The hooker heels are just completely odd, for this dress, for this wearer and for this venue. They almost feel like a last-minute attempt to take the focus off a dress she got talked into wearing.
