I have never seen Mad Men, but understand that this actress is in the show. I like the neckline of the dress with the strips of fabric, but I think the continued strips at the waist make it a little too costumey. The color is really pretty and unique and her hair looks really nice with it. I couldn't find a picture of the back, but the back was very cool.
Her skin is so pale and the dark color of the dress totally washes her out. Her features practically disappear. Her hair is so close to her head and her earrings are so small in comparison to the dress, that all you see is a glaringly white shoulders and head. She still looks nice, but she doesn't stand out. In general, I think she is really good at picking clothes that make her stand out and that balance on her body well. In the next two pictures, whether you love the outfits or not, her features and hair are balanced and look nice.
So you are probably wondering how I could not hate this look. Stay with me here. Just imagine that the sleeves were not pirate sleeves. Imagine that they were just sleek and long. I really like her hair and necklaces and belt. I like the long skirt. I think she looks really elegant (minus the sleeves) and very modest. I just think she looks classy and unique. I think there is a little of a 90's vibe, but the belt and hair save it. The sleeves prevent her from moving into the section of outfits I like, though.
This one pains me to do. I pretty much hate the dress that Tina Fey wore. I like the skirt of the dress a lot. It is a pretty fabric and moves really pretty, but she has no top on! The diamonds on the shoulders are cool and she could look really good if the neckline were raised up. She won an award and the camera was on her and she bent over to stand up and her whole upper body was revealed. She is clearly taped into that thing so as not to have a wardrobe malfunction, but one of the things I have always like about Tina Fey is that she would never wear anything she has to tape herself into to begin with- I thought. She has done low cut before- as in the picture below- but this is far worse. I HATE this look. She was hilarious at the event though and if you look at the post of my blog before this one, there is a funny video of her calling out her internet "haters". I wish she read my blog so she could call me out on trashing her dress.
Oh my gosh!! This dress is so hideous! It is actually really funny to look at! Look at her pose in this picture! Then you get in closer and look at her hair! What the freak?!!? Look at the face she is making!! What is wrong with her?! When I saw her I just kept laughing and laughing. It made the whole night!
She looks like an escaped mental patient.
Now for the dresses I liked:
Love the dress.
I think this dress is so airy and pretty. The color is lovely on the girl and I love the bodice and skirt. It reminds me very much of one Charlize Theron wore a few years ago- which I also loved.
Finally, I love this picture of Ricky Gervais and wife. They are like little happy twins. This picture really made me smile! Her dress is horrible, but I love this picture!
