Sometimes, when an Oscars gown goes from our live-tweeting feed to a blog post, our opinions about it shift as we look at it in a new light or consider it in some sort of context. But with Miss Leslie’s Mr. Zac dress, our initial reaction remains unchanged:
“What a horror show.”
To be fair, we tend not to react well to Zac Posen’s tendency to overdesign every dress he gets his hands on. This one’s no different. Bad enough it’s all the color of an overcooked egg yolk, but he had to go and tie stuff around her boobs, tie stuff around her waist and add about 40 extra pounds of fabric to the skirt, turning it into a literal pile of wrinkled fabric. We suppose if you like the drama of the design or the brilliance of that yellow, this all looks good, but it tends to push a lot of our buttons in a bad way. We don’t like it, is what we’re trying to say.
