A question for you, darlings. Not “IN or OUT?” because that would be incredibly cruel to Miss Jenna, who would likely dissolve into a puddle of tears if she stumbled across the rage and vitriol that would follow if we put this frock’s charms up to a vote. No, let’s just start with the assumption that this:
Is kind of ridiculous and she looks like a stamp book with arms.
We love Mary Katrantzou for the boldness of her designs and we appreciate how much Jenna tends to go for the off-the-beaten-path stuff, but this is too stiff and overwhelming for us to consider it a success. It’s got the germ of a good design idea buried somewhere in there, but it was wildly over-represented. She looks like she’s showing off some design competition winner sponsored by the postal service.
But our question to you is this: Are you inclined to look approvingly on Jenna for making such a bold and unique style choice or would you rather pity her and whisper about her poor taste behind her back?
Be honest now.
