Spotted: Carrie Underwood at the 2014 Time 100 Gala in NYC wearing a Claire Pettibone dress and looking not super excited about it. My thoughts exactly, Car.
Claire Pettibone is one of my favorite designers–for wedding dresses. Not red carpet gowns, and this dress proves why. It’s an awkward mix of floral and brocade with a French-country-meets-Chinoiserie vibe that is not working for me. Plus, the flowers at the waist add bulk to her slim frame, and the bustline isn’t tailored well.
On the plus side, fab hair and makeup, Carrie. Although you didn’t do much in the way of jewelry, I won’t hold it against you since this dress was just such a confusing mess, how could you have possibly accessorized it?
But what say you all? Is this gown unique but pleasing? Or did someone steer Carrie seriously wrong?
