And now, a lesson in fit and proportions, with our good friends Ludacris and Gabrielle.
Miss Gabrielle is wearing a fairly standard one-shoulder jumpsuit with a big sash at the waist. Seen it a hundred times in the last year alone. But The fit and proportions on Miss Gabrielle’s jumpsuit are very, very good, which makes it stand out slightly from the pack. The rise on the crotch isn’t too high, the waist sits where it’s supposed to on her, the pants are wide and flowy, but they don’t make her look bottom heavy. She’s posing pretty hard, which is causing the top to stretch out a bit, but we don’t think there’s a fit issue there. It’s a basic look that works because it’s well-executed and suits her. She just needed a little more oomph in the jewelry sitch and she’d be fine.
Ludacris, on the other hand, is sporting a suit that good use a good tailoring session. It’s not exactly oversized or too large on him, but the shape and fit don’t do anything for him. It’s just kind of big and boxy. If you’re gonna pick a suit in that color and pair it with a shirt like that, you need to make sure the fit is perfect. Otherwise, it can come off a little cheap. It’s a decent look that could just use a little tailoring. And maybe different shoes.
