See what we meant when we said the garments suddenly got better with this episode? Not an art camp project among them. This is a 100% impact dress and while it’s not for every woman, the woman who can wear it is going to turn heads in it.
We’ll grant you that a bright yellow is a hard color to pull off for a lot of people but there’s no denying the color looks stunning on Martinique – and the dress fits her, in the Duchess’s words “like a dream.”
That back is gorgeous, although the little Minnie Mouse gloves aren’t really working for us. We also have the same criticism we had for Wendy’s dress; there should be something to break up the wall of solid color, although since this is more of a va-va-voom dress than Wendy’s Mamie Eisenhower getup, it’s less of an issue.
The ruffles on the skirt are what makes it a tough dress to sell because like we said, not every woman can pull it off, but put it on a gal who’s proud of her trunk and just stand back and watch that thing move.
