Oscars Fug Carpet: Christa B. Allen


As we say often, there is a very nice idea here.

Then again, the Titanic and the Ford Edsel were good ideas too. Execution counts, y’all. This thing is eating her like Jaws eats boats.

    This poor girl. She is so cute, but she clearly needs more help in the fashion department than she’s getting because 90% of the stuff she wears falls into the “close, but no cigar” category. I feel like she needs to have a little mother-daughter chat with Madeline Stowe or something.

    I think this could work with a less heavy skirt and without the neck piece. But,yes, execution is wonky here.

    Or like the Jaws music eats into Oscar speech time.

    I actually love the dress as is, heavy skirt and high neck included, but she either doesn’t have the presence or maybe the height to pull it off. It’s a shame, because the dress and her are both lovely.

    That’s a hella lot of skirt to pull off and she’s not doing it. Poor thing.

    I saw this, and was like, “that is what I would look like in that dress!” I also have a short neck, and I think that is what is making her look so strangled up top. (If only Tyra could show her how to do neck lengthening poses!) ;) If it had been knee length and on someone else, I might like this.

    Just tame the skirt into some reasonable quantity of fabric, and the whole look would be awesomesauce.

    For me this is a scrolldown fug – it’s actually pretty damn cute at cocktail length.

    That pleating looks like stage bunting. Is she hosting her own awards show after the party?

    Does she look weirdly like Zosia Mamet here?

    I think it’s cause the dress neither fits, nor suits her in any way. But, styling, too.

    The neckline is killing this. It would’ve been great strapless.

    It’s a baton twirler standing behind a large beige Barca-lounger.
