Kate Mara Sets us Off at the Valentino Fall 2017 Show

Posted on March 06, 2017

Oh, dear. It appears T Lo’s next ranty obsession of 2017 is now firmly established.

But first:


We love this coat – from tenfeet away. Up close, it gets a little … we don’t know. It doesn’t look expensive enough to have a Valentino label inside. In fact, it looks like it’s made out of duct tape. Maybe it’s just not photogenic. We want to believe, darlings.

This, we can do without:


It’s not quite in the same vein as Nicole Kidman’s Holly Hobbie frock, but it’s still of a piece with the overall womenswear trend toward the juvenile. We’ll give the design credit for having enough edge to not be literal, but even the parts that reinterpret the basic party dress underneath aren’t such hot additions. We might have dealt with a tiered skirt, but having to deal with the tiers running up the entire bodice and even the sleeves (plus the addition of a tiered bib, which is a thing that should have never seen the light of day, for Jesus’ sake)  has left us sputtering and blinking rapidly in indignation. Really, we’re quite the picture right now.

Also, the shoes are ugly.

Geez, the post-awards season red carpet season is not off to a good start, is it? Everyone’s over showing off their panties and now half the ladystars are dressing like little girls and the other half are dressing for a couture version of The Handmaiden’s Tale. The hottest trend of 2017 is going to be the Feminine Cocoon, it would seem.
