Okay, sure. We’re overstating things with that title. But Duchess Megs did manage a minor sort of surprise by managing a little stripe action and color-blocking in her style choices. For a gal who’s strictly about minimalist neutrals, you could almost see the results as seismic, but that’s only because you’re starved for something – anything – with a little more personality to it.
And by “you” in the above paragraph, we are, of course, referring to us.
We had to laugh a little at that last shot. In a tableau exploding with bright colors and patterns, there’s the Duchess, in sober brown and black. Still, it really is a cute dress; perfectly chosen for the setting. She stands out but doesn’t look totally alien. Would we have loved this a whole lot more if it had been in any color story other than a set of dark neutrals? Oh honey, yes. But we’ll take our little moments of style and sass where we can get them. She looks cute.
WERQing that Shelley O realness she likes to pull out now and then. It’s a perfectly serviceable dress for the situation and she looks very nice in it. She overdoes the sleeveless navy thing, but at least the color-blocking at the hem provides some visual interest. Love her hair pulled back like that. Not really feeling that buff-colored shoe at all.
