Let’s start with the good news:

This dress hugs her correctly and is super cheerful, which I appreciate. Minor nit: I think she needed a stronger lip with this color — we’ve established that some form of dark red usually helps the canary-yellow dress sing, and oh lordy, I just noticed that hacky wordplay which I SWEAR was totally accidental, but which I’m leaving in there just so you can share a groan with me. If I don’t slap my own wrist, then who will?

Anyway, I think you’ll agree that this is an actual ray of sunshine compared with what she wore to a pre-party.
