Mackenzie Foy and Keira Knightley at “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” European Premiere

Posted on November 02, 2018

Who’s in the mood for some fluff, frills and frippery, darlings? It better be you, because you’re about to be pummeled in the face with a metric tonne of it. Brace yourselves. And be sure to monitor your sugar levels throughout. We can’t be held responsible if you go into shock.

 

 

BAM. Ten tons of twee, coming at ya. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

 

 

While these levels of princessy preciousness aren’t exactly to our tastes, they’re somewhat de rigeur for standing in front of a big Disney logo and DEFINITELY on point if you’re trying to evoke classic ballerina costumes. We have to separate this dress from the overwhelmingly saccharine backdrop, but when we edit all that Disneyana out of the picture, it turns out this is a very pretty, lightly chic gown that looks pretty fantastic on her. We’d have recommended a richer shade than that pink for her, but that’s the only true quibble we have. The makeup job is very … well, pink. And while we don’t normally love that consumptive look, it actually works if you look at this from more of a fantasy costuming perspective. She did well here. Knowing she was going to be sharing the red carpet with the Queen of Romance Dressing, girlfriend stepped up her game.

And speaking of the queen, she’s in fine form this night:

Again, in a real-world sense, this is a lot of fluff and foofaraw, but we’d say both of these ladies deliberately leaned into more fantasy-based, over-the-top styling for this premiere. It’s risky, because you can come off looking like a Disney park employee if you take it too far, but in each case, the look suits them, comes off dramatic in photos and appears to be totally on point for the event. We’re not entirely convinced on the bustline/sleeve design, which makes her look like she’s constantly slouching, but the rest of it is a total fashion confection, absolutely perfect for her.
