We’re gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that …
Miss Gabrielle is looking to freshen up her image.
Girl, what is this even.
We can’t. We tried really hard to look at this from a “You grab yourself some spotlight, gurl!” perspective, but it’s not happening. This is straight-up tacky. It’s a two-piece with a (literally) half-assed cover-up. Nothing about this says “Vanity Fair Oscars Party.” Come to think of it, nothing about this says “Jean-Paul Gaultier Couture” either. We’re not sure what that wacky Frenchman was thinking. This makes for a fun runway moment, but it really looks awful in the (more or less) “real” world.
Miss Gabrielle, we support you getting yourself a new, sexy image if that’s your thing, but this is not the way, doll. This might work on some budding popstar at the VMAs, but this is the wrong time and place and you’re the wrong gal for this look. Girl, that’s not your (half) dress.
