Don’t be fooled by the above picture. You’ve got to get the full effect:
She seriously looks like she’s being slowly eaten alive by ruffles. It’s actually a little disturbing, the longer you look at it; like some sort of anemone/jellyfish hybrid is digesting her.
Okay, fine. Maybe that’s taking it a bit far, but we honestly think you could remove 90% of the ruffles on this dress and it would still look frilly, girly and old-school romantic enough. More and more lately it feels like the fashion world is putting out basic dresses with one wildly over-rendered detail. A month or so ago everyone was sporting goofy-ass sleeves. Before that, goofy-ass shoulders. Are we heading into goofy-ass ruffledom or goofy-ass hems as the next major celebrity style trend?
Still, she was smart to pick this for an interview and not for the red carpet.
Because once she sits down, all that cray goes away. It’s a very pretty color and print. It just goes way too manic the further down you go.
In other news, the hints of a second season of Big Little Lies do not fill us with excitement. Bring the cast back for a different story. This one’s done.
