Rosario Dawson at Netflix’s “Krystal” Premiere: Right Style, Wrong Dress

Posted on April 06, 2018

Of all the ladystars out there who can make a dress like this sing, we suspect Rosario probably tops that very short list:


Is it a cliche that borders on cosplay? Absolutely, which makes it, in some ways, the right kind of dress for her, since she tends to like big, colorful moments on the red carpet over looking chic or stylish or trendy. She’s a cosplay kind of girl, in other words. And she’s perfectly suited for a Latin American-inspired style aesthetic. But while the girl can work a massive hoop and an off-the-shoulder ruffle, the dress simply looks cheap. She looks like she should be slinging trays of margaritas in a chain restaurant, which is so very not fabulous. This style for Rosario? Big yes. This dress specifically? Absolutely not.





Wait, what?

Per Rotten Tomatoes:

KRYSTAL is an ensemble comedic drama about Taylor Ogburn, a young sheltered man from the South with a strange heart condition. Because of his ailment, he can’t go to college–let alone drink or do drugs or experience life in any real way. Upon meeting the woman of his dreams–an ex-hooker-stripper-junkie-alcoholic with a sixteen year old son in a wheelchair–Taylor pretends to be in AA to try and woo her. His fabulously talented family (who perhaps actually belong in AA) not surprisingly have a thing or two to say about Taylor falling for this beguiling and unpredictable woman. Past transgressions smash head on with young love, causing complications for everyone involved but In order to have even a hint of a chance to come out the other side, Taylor must face his own demons and learn what it means to live without fear and finally become a man.


We’re a little embarrassed for everyone involved. That sounds like every writing cliche you can think of, packed into one movie. And Rosario deserves better at this point in her career than to be cast as the “beguiling and unpredictable” ex-stripper dream girl.
