Celebrities Featured: Jenna Malone and Irina Pantaeva
Colour: The colour selection works for her colouring and is fun for her age.
Bodyshape: The over-exaggerated sleeves and print work for her lean body and give her as well some roundness on her top half. The striped pajama trousers keep her look proportional because she balances it with a contrasting top with a hugging hemline.
The speaking bubble print avoids the effect of a long body top. She can pull off the extra volume in trousers since she has long lean legs that counter balance with her long lean arms and therefore she can carry off as well the big prints in her leg area.
Style: Here it is where it is all questionable- she looks like a walking talking billboard . What is she trying to say? She looks like a bad idea out of a comic strip . This outfit is tasteless, inappropriate for the event and just too old for this look.
Overall Rating: 0* Zero Stars
Colour: This colour as an accent colour would be ok, but as a solid colour no way. It looks very draining on her.
Shape: The shape of the dress works very well on her body shape. First because the crew neckline works with her neck and smaller bustline; second because the slightly dropped sleeveline and loose fit work for her lean long arms and adds roundness to her frame. The “thickness”in the dress hemline works perfectly on her long shaped legs without adding bulk.
Style: Her haircut & style is sharp and needs to be carried on in her dress. She should have chosen this dress in a strong bold colour like blue, red, hot pink, fuchsia, emerald green, turquoise or black so it would have counter balanced with the softer material. Or she should have chosen this dress in bolder prints in colour or size or opt for a more exaggerated shape of this dress e.g. android cut.
This colour on this fabric is not only washing her out, but looks like a vintage dress worn the wrong way by the wrong person. It also doesn’t do anything for her long waist, which she should have accessorized maybe with a brooch or wide black belt to give it some shape and contouring.
The dress looks under-dressed by not wearing any tights. It should have been worn either in a modern way with thick tights in black or bold colours or worn in a lady-like manner. Think of the “40s”, her accessories are just not bold enough to make a feature or complement this look. She looks lost in translation!
Overall Rating: 2** Two Stars
Wow… two bad ratings in a row!! I think maybe they need some style help
