Isabelle Huppert Finally Goes too Far for us at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Posted on February 09, 2017


The time has come for us to lob a truth bomb here.


This lady has terrible style and/or a team who doesn’t know how to dress her.



We’ve danced around it in previous posts about her choices, pointing out how bad the proportions are for her with most of her looks or how ill-suited her choices are to her. But we have OFFICIALLY hit the wall on this hideosity. This is not a good look in any instance – and we stand behind our year-long complaint about Gucci’s forced whimsy, of which this dress makes a particularly ridiculous example. But what gets us here is not just how ugly and silly this dress is; we’re also struck by just how inappropriate this dress is for her.

We don’t mean that in a propriety sort of way. There’s nothing offensive about this choice. We just mean that anyone with a little bit of style sense and a little bit of experience should know that a dress like this is going to look even sillier than usual on a mature woman. It’s deliberately and ironically faux-naive in a very child-like way. We’re almost never sticklers about age-appropriate rules of style, but this is a bad dress made worse by the unsuitability factor.

Lady, you need some new advice.
