We’re usually the first in line with a bitchy quip any time Evie steps out in her usual fare, but for whatever reasons, it’s all working for us this time. And for the life of us, we can’t really tell what she did any differently.
We just had to supplement the usual red carpet shots with some pics from Evie’s instagram because the swagger is real (and the lighting is better, and most Asian premiere events shoot the stars from terrible angles). Honestly, instagram truly is becoming the new red carpet – especially because celebs have way more control over the images.
Anyway, we ADORE every single bit of this. We wouldn’t normally put something we love so unreservedly up to a vote, but we kinda figure opinions might be a little mixed on this one. We’d be happily proven wrong by an overwhelming vote of support, but we can see the argument that this comes off a bit too “Nana suit” paired with Elvis styling. We can understand if some might think that our normal criticisms of Evangeline’s style choices – that they’re a bit over the top and that she makes kind of goofy hair and makeup choices – still apply here. Like we said, we can’t quite put our finger on what makes this look different from all the ones we got bitchy about. All we can say is that it works – and that she’s particularly well suited to pull this look off.
But you tell us: Is it working for you?
