After an awards season involving (fabulous) sequined avian life, and this wacky McQueen, Nicole does us all proud and closes out the circuit with this surprisingly good blush-colored Armani, which should wash her out, but somehow does not (thanks in part to her amazing lipstick). Sure, this dress looks a bit like it could make an amazing throw rug, or like a salute to truly fabulous doilies, but — as is almost always the case when I compare clothing to housewares — it’s in a very appealing way.
