I really love most of the cute, retro-infused outfits here. And that’s partly because it’s not trying to shock me, nor crack me over the head with its own perceived sartorial intelligence. It’s just good-looking stuff, well-made and covetable. Maybe that’s not cool, incisive fashion criticism, but I’ve never tried to present myself as a cool, incisive fashion critic (or actually any kind of fashion critic… more of a crabby judger of clothes), so we’re all good there.
The press release for the outfit described it as “a Gucci Première pale green silk georgette strapless gown with silver and matte black feather motif embroideries [and] layers of black organza that cascade into a dramatic train.”
Proof positive that sometimes words really can paint a prettier picture than… well, a picture. Her body is clearly great, her earrings are groovy, but the bodice is way too snug and I am concerned the skirt is contagious.
Do we think this is the last time we see these two clutching at each other glowingly on a red carpet? I mean, until he’s nominated again, assuming they are still married? I don’t mean to be a pessimist nor a cynic, but… I think I’m a pessimist, and a cynic. But let’s discuss the dress. The short version: I love the color, but the back looks like a wedding decoration.
