We get that the top half of the dress might seem a little standard and conventional and that one might consider some sort of twist in the design or styling of the bottom half to be a good idea. Take away the belt, cut off the sleeve-trains and match the textile of the skirt to the bodice. You do all that and you have what? A boring dress. So stipulated.

In other news, her head styling is gorgeous.
