Style File: Ruth Negga Does the Awards Season Poledance in Miu Miu and Valentino

Posted on February 07, 2017

Ruth “Never Boring” Negga keeps us all on our toes as she unleashes one wildly different look after another on her current promotional tour. Yesterday she served up 1920s Merry Widow realness, and today she’s taking a couple spins on the romantic side of things, with varying results.

Let’s all move in closer for judging purposes, shall we? Form a single file, so we don’t scare her.

A-FREAKING-DORABLE. It’s her version of Hipster Twee and we’re feeling it. The bag? Not so much. The shoes are the best part of the look but we do have to struggle a bit to reconcile them with the slightly matchy sweater. There’s a big part of us that would have rather seen them saved for another outfit. This one could’ve done with something less focus-pulling on her feet. Still, it’s a great take on a style she doesn’t tend to do very often. The leather gives it just the right edge.

Unfortunately, not even she can make this ridiculous thing work. It’s a glittery, wildly over-embellished nightgown. And it completely lacks sophistication, in our opinion. Those little hearts and flowers? On a gown that cost this much money? Would you hate us if we used the word “jejeune” right now or would that be the point at which you hit the wall on our pretentiousness?

Feh. She’s better than this garment, frankly.
