Style File: Allison Janney Keeps it Simple, in Georges Chakra Couture and Dsquared2

Posted on February 06, 2018

When it comes to awards-track, serious nominee style, Miss Allison sees no reason to stop doing what she’s always done: pick sleek, unfussy pieces with a twist. It’s get-the-job-done red carpetry and it, well… gets the job done.

Unforch, that’s just about all it does.

The only thing this dress has to distinguish itself from widow’s weeds are the sheer panels. And they’re kind of ugly, sorry to say. It’s a great shape and style for her, of course. We wouldn’t argue that she looks bad in this. The hair, makeup, jewelry and shoes – all well done or well chosen. But are we wrong to think she needs to bump things up a little? Even if it is a luncheon. It’s like she took the runway version and asked to have anything interesting stripped from it. We get that she’s unfussy, but there are plenty of stylish, simple ways to render that.

We like the idea, but the fit is a bit off. We don’t think a double-breasted cut is for her. Still, at least it’s got some personality to it. She should wear suits on the red carpet more often; just ones that fit her better and maybe have a little color, texture or pattern to them. Unfussy style preferences can easily go bland or generic if you don’t put a little effort into dressing it up a bit.
