Girl, that’s not your dress. Or rather, “Girl, that’s been everyone else’s dress for the last five years.”
She’s stepping away from an iconic, career-making role with an extremely specific look to it. While she was promoting The Crown, we can’t say she stuck to any sort of QEII-specific style of dress, but she did smartly work a light sort of romanticism with appropriately formal undertones to it. She’s such a naturally striking person, with classic Snow White coloring, that we were kind of looking forward to seeing her break out of the Crown mode and take advantage of all the high-end fashion coming her way now.
Obviously, this isn’t a bad look. It’s just sort of generic. We’ve seen plenty of semi-sheer, floaty, puffy-sleeved gowns in the last decade. And we’ve seen more than our share of whimsically embellished and even star-spangled couture in the past half-decade to last us quite some time.
This was her chance to pull a January Jones and show everyone what she can do when she’s not stuck in period-wear. We’re not suggesting she start wearing the cray, but some modernity and edge is really what’s called for right now, not stale, funereal whimsy.
Miss Lady, there’s a world of style out there for you. Let’s get you in a plaid skinny suit and a rocker t to start.
