Love or Loathe: Ashley Madekwe

Spotted: Revenge star Ashley Madekwe strutting the red carpet in a black and white Monique Lhuillier dress at the 2014 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala the night before the Golden Globes awards in LA. And while I am usually quite strong in my opinions, you little doves must help me decide whether or not this look is a win or a scatterbrained fail:

Quite honestly, I love it. I didn’t think I would–it sort of looks like it’s been run through a fun house–but it’s tailored and cut so well, not to mention Ash’s flawless makeup and, that I can’t help but fall for it. Although I must levy my usual complaint: not enough jewelry. If Fred Leighton is offering, why would you not nab a few pieces for the evening? It baffles me.

But darlings, b and w outfits are deceptively difficult to pull off. They can photograph poorly, looking boring and dull without a wealth of accessories and gems. Did AM fall into this monochrome trap? And should the hem be shorter to show off her Sergio Rossi heels? Or are you feeling her look exactly as it is?

    While I agree that her hair and makeup is absolutely flawless and the gown is cut perfectly, I can’t get past the pattern around the stomach area. It makes her look slightly bulgy and misshapen..

    the pattern makes the fabric look cheap, in my opinion.

  3. Nerd Said:

    It’s quite nice, but I can’t help but wonder – isn’t it a little forgettable?
