There comes a point in every actress’s relationship with a high-end fashion or luxury goods house where your ol’ pals T Lo are forced to make an observation. In a way, it’s sort of a milestone in an actress’s career. Just ask Kristen Stewart or Jennifer Lawrence or Emma Stone some time. They too had to suffer the slings and arrows implied by the following assessment:
“We’re not sure [INSERT BRAND] is doing right by her anymore.”
Girlfriend wears herself a lot of Chanel — and unlike K Stew, who managed to more or less carve her own aesthetic out of the bones of the Chanel house style for a time, Margot never seems a good fit for the brand and vice versa. Don’t get us wrong. This is by no means terrible. It’s a pretty, understated gown and the styling is tasteful and on point. She looks really good, if not great. But this is fairly generic and doesn’t really sell the brand the way Stewart’s work with it managed. It’s pretty and forgettable and anyone but the most ardent runway-watcher would have to be informed it was Chanel at all. She’s been flirting a lot with these sober and understated looks lately and we don’t think they serve her all that well. She does better in fashion that makes a bit more of an impact.
