DAMMIT. We HATE when this happens. Sorry to start off so unpleasantly, darlings, but this sort of thing always represents a huge pain-in-the-ass for us. And by “this sort of thing” we mean a ladystar who’s been stuck in a style rut for years, finally sticking a toe outside her comfort zone, and …
… plunging to the depths of style victimhood. DAMMIT.
She’d been stuck in a Zac Posen-shaped box for most of the last decade. It’s great that she’s recognizing how limited her style choices were and how much she’d boxed herself in. We love that she’s turning toward a label like Prada. We love that she wants to be adventurous and find new elements and styles to play with. But lady? This is just a bad suit, straight up. Or rather, it’s a good (if plain) suit that someone wielding a hot glue gun and some feathers (and presumably on very little sleep) got a hold of when no one at Prada was paying attention. We’re all for juxtapositions and unexpected fun, but these styles and elements just don’t blend well at all. It looks silly. And the “Rey from Star Wars” hairstyle really doesn’t suit her.
