The fashion people who said she was under dressed, are a bunch of ... let's be polite, .. they're misinformed. It's Lanvin BTW and I didn't catch who's fantastic earrings those are. Email me.
I loved as well. I do think the sleeves were two ruffles too much, but .... it was a very smart 'woman' silhouette. At the end of the day, isn't that what we all want? Smart and womanly?
How about Drew Barrymore, channeling Marilyn Monroe? It worked! Who would have guessed?
Beyonce and JLo, we've seen these dresses before, no?
More red carpets to come, can't wait!!!
