Let’s start with the obvious point: From a style or design perspective, this is a fairly dull dress.
But before you sputter your outrage, let’s follow that up with the equally obvious point that she looks beautiful here. Also: she’s infinitely better off when she keeps her red carpet style simple and bold. She loves to be experimental and we’d hate to snark her out of that habit, but she’s always at her best when she’s working some form of modern Grace Kelly drag. Points for excellent styling. We’re not a hundred percent on that choker (although it bugs us far less than most), but the rest of the jewelry, as well as the bag, nail color and shoes are all quietly working to support the dress and pull the look together.
So no, it’s not fashion-forward or drop-dead chic,but it’s very pretty and very well put-together. And after 18 months of ladystars going out in plain black party dresses, we think we’re ready for a round of plain white.
