Not really feeling this one ourselves, kittens.
Sometimes her sense of dark drama really serves her well on the red carpet and sometimes it leaves her in a highly unphotogenic or awkward-looking ensemble. This would be a case of the latter, to our eyes. There are a few elements to recommend it, and it remains fairly on trend for this season. Velvet, fringe and embroidery are like the trifecta of style right now because everyone in fashion wants to dress like a storefront fortune-teller, apparently. But this is just too heavy and tablecloth-y for our tastes. The one part of the dress that goes a little light and sheer is the area around the bust, which makes for a really odd effect. All we can think when we look at her is “Her boobs must be kind of chilly right now.”
But perhaps we’re not seeing this one correctly. Pray tell, what are your thoughts?
