We love you, Miss Bingbing, and you certainly know how to consistently bring high drama to any red carpet. But it seems to us you have a tendency toward gorgeously photogenic looks that always seem to come close to ruination because of one goofy or distracting detail.
It seems to be your thing, dear. In case we’re not being clear, we’re talking about the shoulder rose.
It’s not a terrible design element, but in this case, it’s just too large for the placement of it. And it gives her one puffy boob, which is kind of a distracting thing for any dress to do to an innocent boob. And while we’re being cranky, we may as well admit that the somewhat strained randomness of the black elements is also kind of distracting and not to the dress’s benefit. We think the basic ideas of a fabric rose and black trim on a dress like this one makes perfect sense, but both elements go a little overboard, throwing the design off.
