Imagine showing up for Paris Fashion Week, front row ticket clutched tightly …
… and being handed this to wear for the picture-taking. Her expression pretty much says it all. She was probably hoping she was done with this awkward shit now that awards season is over.
To be fair, the dress has possibilities. The boots do too. It’s just that they look awful together.
We like the design of the bodice and the way it works to make a leather dress more interesting and intricate. But the bust isn’t particularly flattering to her. There’s a sense of … deflation built into the design. And the proportions here are somewhat model-specific. The bodice is elongating in an unattractive way and the skirt attaches at an odd point, leaving it to hang off her hips rather than rest on them, if that makes any sense.
Basically, everything about this look, including her expression, is downward-pointing. It’s almost difficult to raise your eyes and take it all in. Kind of a depressing look, considering it’s a strapless leather dress.
