Darlings, here’s why we’re turning the final opinion on this frock over to you. It’s because we don’t like it on principle…
But we’re not sure we can argue against it on the merits.
Look, we tend not to like tiered-ruffle gowns. They always look like fussy party favors to us. And while this dress does give her the contrast she desperately needs in her style choices, it’s still way more in the neutral area than we’d prefer for her. On the other hand, it’s definitely got a bit of that “underwater queen” vibe of her character. She doesn’t normally dress for premieres that way, but Amber Heard turned this one into Comic Con, so maybe Nic figured she should roll with and show up in Atlantean drag. We definitely don’t hate it. We just wouldn’t have recommended it had anyone had the foresight and taste to ask our opinions ahead of time. That’s all.
