Yara Shahidi Fails to Launch, in COS and Coach, at BUILD Series

Posted on February 07, 2018

We’re gonna let you in on a little celebrity style blogging secret: There’s nothing worse for us than a beautiful person who emits their own light stepping out in something we don’t like. You can’t critique it without coming off like grumpy assholes.

You’re killing us here, Yara.

Of course she’s lovely. It’s the getup that isn’t. The orange jacket and skirt would be better served broken up. The patch motif on the coat is wildly overdone. We realize that’s pretty much the point of the design, but it just doesn’t look fabulous to us.

It’s certainly not terrible, but when you consider just how good this lady is at serving up high-fashion, high-impact promotional style, this comes off as a bit of a letdown. We got a heads-up yesterday that she would be doing this appearance. We actually debated whether to hold off on some of yesterday’s content until we got the pictures for this event. That should tell you a little about our expectations. So maybe we’re not being fair. She certainly looks as good or better than a good deal of the stars who show up for BUILD talks.
