I know I’ve seen this dress on someone else before and I have no idea who it was, or where. It might have been Beyonce, and I think she might have looked cute in it. That seems possible, right? (I’m sure I’m wrong and it’s probably actually the opposite of Beyonce. So, like, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.)

Regardless, I think Alicia looks pretty cute, too. It is always such a damn relief when she isn’t wearing a jumpsuit, or pants so tight I worry she’s modeling the “Before” look in a Monistat ad. This color is great on her, and she’s working the cut. (Also, I think I love her clutch.)

HOWEVER.

My feelings about those shoes are mixed, at best. No. I can’t lie. I am not into them. They look like the world’s most expensive dyed-to-match bridesmaid shoes. Anything that coordinated makes my face hurt.
