Seriously, that design in that setting is making her come off like some sort of woodland elf queen. There’s just a touch of regal, whimsical fantasy to the dress. The more you look at it, the more you want to look at it, if only to make sense of all the various details. She has a tremendous knack for being able to work a ton of discordant elements at once, including bizarre shapes, odd color stories and mismatched patterns. This one’s got it all and she looks born to wear it. The hair is gorgeous and somehow, even though it owes nothing to the design or style of the dress, feels like it perfectly coordinates with it. Just an oddly gorgeous, totally idiosyncratic look that only she could pull off in this way.
