Elisabeth Moss and Gwendoline Christie attend a photocall for “Top of The Lake: China Girl” photo call held at BFI Southbank in London.
They’ve been red carpet besties since Cannes, so we’re surprised at how different their approaches are here. Granted, they both managed to pick dark, heavy-looking and slightly overbearing frocks, so maybe they did coordinate; just not in the way we would have preferred.
This is already coming off bitchier than we intend. We don’t love either look, but they’re okay enough for a photo call.
This is … half-cute. We’re very much not feeling the sheer sleeves and bodice, but the beading is at least a little interesting. The gray/silver/pearl pumps do a lot to elevate the look. A bad shoe could turn this frumpy or funereal very easily. Granted, it’s not far from either of those assessments as is.
This, we just don’t get at all. It’s big and dark and shapeless. Why would she want to wear this for a promotional event? It looks like something you put on over your regular clothes so you can throw pottery or work on large-scale sculptures. If comfort or coverage were her main objectives, there were definitely more stylish and interesting ways to meet them. She likes to make the occasional edgy or avant garde style choice, and we suspect she was going for something along those lines here, but we’re afraid it’s not really working.
