Darlings, mark this day on your calendars. T Lo stumbled across not one, but two semi-whimsical Gucci dresses – and we like both of them. It’s insane! Up is down! Black is white!
But that isn’t quite true. We don’t like both of them. We liked Kirsten Dunst’s – a lot.
But we LOVE this one.
And a huge part of that comes down to Miss Charlize’s red carpet history, which doesn’t have very many entries under “bold, colorful, whimsical little dresses,” which is totally a category in our heads, where we are constantly nominating and giving out awards to celebrities. Our point is, girlfriend would prefer not to think about things too much, and has always tended toward neutral dresses that show off the goods in a controlled way and don’t require a lot of her. We think we must have used some variant of the phrase “resting on pretty” in roughly half her posts over the years.
But this is loaded with personality and color. We’re surprised by how well she can work something so girly and fun. Her style tends to be fairly sober and grownup. This is a nice surprise and we wonder if it signals a direction change.
We get the impression that the promo tour for this one is going to show us a more aggressively stylish side of Charlize. The character kind of demands she adopt strong looks.
