Maybe we’re just feeling kind or maybe our imaginations are automatically correcting any deficiencies, but as black dresses go (a common sight on the red carpet that we tend to complain about because it’s a safe and un-photogenic choice), this has some possibilities.
The problem, as we see it, is that it’s too tight – which is odd, because she’s usually excellent about fit – and the black pumps were a perfunctory and unimaginative choice. A bright pop of color wouldn’t work, but maybe a two-toned black shoe or something dark with a pattern to it. Anything to add some visual interest.
It doesn’t help that the backdrop and carpet are both black as well.
