Just yesterday I was boasting about how our favorite It Girl Blake Lively was ruling the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. My darlings, what a difference a day makes. Today’s style is far more questionable…
B donned an iridescent, ankle-length, tulle-infused Chanel gown to the premiere of Mr. Turner and I’ll just come right out and say it–I hate this dress. I truly, truly do. Even aside from the iridescent sparkles–which I loathe–there is just SO much going on with this garment. The bodice looks like an ice skating and/or pageant ensemble and while the skirt is draped well, there’s just too much sparkle going on. It looks like a hologram sticker. If this gown had been pure white and a little less ruffly, it would’ve been a hit.
But, true to form, B still looks luminous and works it as best she can, keeping her shoes simple and hair and makeup sexy and unfussy.
Perhaps this gown glittered in a fetching way IRL but in 2D it’s just a strange, too busy mess. Do you think that this dress could’ve used some editing by the designers or is it crazy in a fun way?
