Yes, that title is silly and yes, these dresses are more in the lemon range than the sunflower one, but let’s face it: “A Bowl of Lemons at the Vanity Fair Party” just doesn’t have that lyrical, delightful quality you look for from us. When you’re not looking for bitchy commentary about dresses, that is.
Anyway, onward! To the butter dish!
Emma Stone in Louis Vuitton
This was a surprising change from her main event look. We wish we could say it was a pleasant surprise, but the colors here are really not that friendly to her. It’s a cute style, but it needed to be in blue or red, we think.
Heidi Klum in Ralph & Russo Couture
Never stop Heidi-ing, Heidi.
This is awful, of course. The shine, the tassles, and yes, the color – all awful.
Odeya Rush in Vivienne Westwood
Since we trashed to the first two looks, you might think we have a bias against yellow. Not the case. This looks great on her. The design is basic but the color elevates the look. Bit puckered and wrinkled, though.
Sarah Paulson (in Marc Jacobs) and Holland Taylor (in Christian Siriano)
They are just the cutest. We know this is a post about Sarah’s dress, but there was no way we were cutting Taylor out of these shots. LOVE her tux. AttaChristian. You did it again.
Anyway, Miss Sarah can work a lemon yellow, it would seem. The dress is gorgeous. Much as we love the retro drama of a good pair of opera gloves, the volume and style of the dress don’t really call for them.
Tiffany Haddish in Brandon Maxwell
This is a really great dress that looks great on her without asking too much of her. Not that we’re suggesting it’s easy to walk around in a gown like this, but train aside, it’s fairly unfussy. This isn’t too bad a yellow for her, but it’s just a bit on the harsh side. Then again, given the other dresses in this post, that would seem to be the trend right now.
