Miss Annie’s got a movie out and that means we’ve got some discussable red carpetry ahead of us. She reportedly has a commitment to wearing only vintage looks on this promo tour, and the first two out of the gate seem to support that. Unforch, we’re not feeling either of the choices.
Let’s move in closer, in a non-creepy way, for a better, more-optimal-for-judging, look, shall we?

The skirt’s really nice, but try as we might, we can’t love a dress that smacks you in the face when you turn your head too quickly. No one should, really. Ladies, we don’t want to be dogmatic about fashion, but dresses that slap you are pretty much the definition of dresses that aren’t friendly to you.
Then there’s this:

We don’t have the deets on this dress yet, but we’re assuming it’s vintage. If it’s not, it certainly looks it – and that is not meant in the most complimentary of ways. It just looks stale to us. Nothing about the color story feels of the moment – which is not the worst thing in the world for any style choice, but it’s better for fashion-minded celebs to keep themselves updated as a way of promoting themselves. Worse than it being not-so-fresh is the fact that it just doesn’t fit or flatter her. Scroll up to the slap dress to see the difference in how her body is dressed. This one makes her look droopy and hippy. The bodice needs more structure and the skirt needs a little less volume hanging off the waist. Worst of all, the skirt just keeps getting uglier the further you go down.
Credit to her for picking unique and discussable choices. They’re both head-turning in their own way. But Annie, we’re afraid both of these looks failed to launch.
