Every time Miss Nicole wears a black dress with some sparkle to it, we feel a little tingle inside, darlings. We’ve been “telling” her for the better part of a year now that “Disney Witch” was her primary style brief, every since she wowed us at last year’s Met Gala in a dark, sparkly, fantasy-based McQueen that set her off like no other dress had in years. Intellectually, we know we had nothing to do with her embrace of that exact brief in the past year, but it’s just so much prettier to imagine that she hangs on our every word, don’t you think?
With that in mind…
This one’s only kind-of working for us.
The shape’s kind of weird, no? We’re not loving the hip action or the shape of the hem. The necklace is stunning, but it begs for an up do. We honestly think a tight coif would do a ton to improve this whole look, top to bottom.
