Celebrities Reviewed: Katy Perry and Kate Beckinsale at the VH1 Critics Choice Awards in Santa Monica.
Here we go again!
The colour is too light for her colouring and in combination with this silk/lacy material it can be only good for a night gown or lingerie dress to be worn under a dress — not instead of wearing a dress. It shows off a cheap, tacky touch.
The dress is unflattering body hugging around her hips and thighs which is a shame. Katy Perry is a young beautiful girl with a perfect figure.
This type of scarf/shawl in this colour is best to be left for indoors when “powdering your nose”. (read i the bedroom) Her hair style works with her vintage look, but it all screams of a poorly copied Dita von Teese look
Overall Rating: * One Star
Ouch! The dress reminds me of a bridesmaid’s dress gone horrible wrong
Who chose the colour of her dress and hair? They are far too yellow driven for her skin colour. It is very unflattering for her. Has anyone noticed that she is young in age?
Why would you put this woman in a rusty colour garment that is shiny on top? Shine in garments draws attention to a specific area and should be worn only at bodyparts that can take the detail, attention and focus.
Chandra has a rectangle body shape that means that they lack a natural waist, therefore you need to create the illusion of a waist. The high-waisted cut of the dress is the same width as her shoulders– which is only done with someone with a waist.
A rectangle can’t wear clothes and styles that are made for women with a natural waist and female curves; e.g. neat hourglass as Kate Beckinsale. This dress sits wrong in every way. It is meant to sit at the waist, drape gently down over your hips, bum and thighs, so the draping is creating feature of your female curves. The dress doesn’t create any curves, but unflattering volume that can be mistaken for body fat on hips and thighs.
The whole look feels very cluttered and makes her short neck stand out even more. She has to opt for clothes that are simple in style with little detail that complement her beautiful face and skin.
