While some awards shows are cheeky and fun, like the VMAs, others, like last night’s Gotham Independent Film Awards in NYC, are dour, pretentious affairs with absolutely zero exciting fashion and an even less interesting gift back, trust.
But between glasses of champagne and inane conversation with Robert De Niro about “his craft” (ugh no one cares) I spied the one interesting thing at the event: Shailene Woodley, or at least her Calvin Klein Collection dress. Observe:
From afar, I quite liked this flapper-inspired drop-waist dress. But the closer I got, the stranger the gown became. Rather than being crafted from some silky metallic fabric, it was in fact a snakeskin basket weave (??) with strangely fringed edges. And her shoes (and non-existent pedicure, the horror) were just plain unflattering. While her short hair lends itself to a retro wave, she instead merely slicked it back and dashed out of the house without any jewelry or even a fun clutch.
Overall, I’m not liking this look at all. It makes her appear blocky and unbalanced, but what say you, minions? And don’t hold back–you know I never do…XOXO.
