We feel like there’s a change happening in red carpetry post-awards season. Along with the rise of the prairie dress, it feels like there’s a shift toward bolder and simpler designs to replace the preponderance of sheers and laces and various other undergarment-baring forms of dress. .
This would be an example of the latter:
Unforch, we only half-love this. The color looks fantastic on her and we really like the almost armor-like feel of the bodice, but that stiff heaviness extends into the skirt, which is where it loses us. Maybe if it was floor length we’d be on board, but the length is awkward and only tends to highlight the stiffness of it. Basically, it’s an awesome look until we get down to her knees. We wonder if this wouldn’t have worked better at that length.
