Silly us. We stupidly thought everything that could be done with the modern pantsuit has been done in the last few years. We love it as a classic and always applaud ladysuiting when it’s done well, but given how popular they’ve become again, we didn’t think any gal could step out wearing one and surprise us with its freshness and chicness. Miss Viola took a sip of her beer, handed it off to a stagehand, and said “Hold this,” before taking up the challenge.
She looks absolutely stunning. She doesn’t look a hundred percent comfortable sitting down which is to be expected when you have to unbutton a jacket over a sheer top, we suppose. It’s a terrific walking-out look and would have looked amazing on the red carpet, but for sitting down, we suspect she’d have been more comfortable going up a size. It’s meant to have a sporty, more form-fitting cut, but that’s not always the greatest for sitting down in front of a crowd. Still, we adore this look on her, from the colors to the hair, it’s dazzling.
