Style File: Rosamund Pike Goes to Extremes in Givenchy

Posted on February 21, 2018

Like Caitriona Balfe, Miss Rosamund opted to try out some major bang action (a hair reference, weirdos) along with some semi-extreme salt-and-pepper fashion choices this week. If one more ladystar steps out in the next few days working the same vibe, we’re officially calling it a trend.

It’s … fine. We honestly can’t tell anymore if ladies are wearing black dresses on the red carpet for solidarity reasons or simply because they’re in an LBD kind of mood. If it’s the former, this is all fine. If it’s the latter, we’d wish for some color or pattern here, because except for the neckline, this is just about the most funereal promo-tour dress we’ve seen in a long time. The silhouette and the sleeve length veer toward dowdiness, but some sharp styling choices – like much better shoes and a statement piece of jewelry – would seriously help the look.

It’s got a sort of updated ABBA feel, which should make us love it, but we honestly don’t think she has what it takes to really make this ensemble sing. Picture everything here on Rihanna or Gaga. She just doesn’t exude that sort of winking sense of fun to make an ensemble like this really pop. It’s a cliche to say it, but it’s wearing her rather than the other way around.

And having kept our mouths shut up until now, we’re afraid we’re going to burst if we don’t come out with it: Those bangs look awful on her. We’re not entirely convinced they’re not removable.
