We tend to give Miss Scarlett a hard time vis-à-vis her red carpet choices. She has a tendency to marry standard “silver screen siren” dress preferences with rather severe hair and makeup, which usually doesn’t suit the dress and never seems to suit her. And while there’s still some of that happening here, we think this is one of her better, more polished efforts in a while.
First, it’s a beautiful gown in a great color and it all suits her perfectly, but it’s poorly fitted in the bust. We suppose her makeup artist saw that Marilyn-esque dress and decided to give her a ’50s face to go with it, but it really doesn’t suit her and it looks terribly harsh – especially when it’s paired with such a tight hairstyle. We might’ve loved the original Barbie makeup more if she had a bit more of a blowout to go with it. But like we said, there’s more wrong than right here. The dress is nearly perfect and the jewelry is stunning. Just let your hair down, girl.
