In or Out: Susan Lucci
Susan Lucci attends the 2009 Child Protection Agency’s Gala at 583 Park Avenue in New York City in a modified Marchesa gown.
Even though we have some issues with this, we’ll give her an IN because it’s still a stylish, eye-catching dress and good old Susan is working the shit out of it, Tupperware tits and all.
We think the changes she made to the dress made it a far less interesting dress. It may just be a result of photography and lighting, but it looks to us like the altered dress is in a far “reddier” red than the original, more toned-down red. Certainly, Susan’s got the coloring to pull off a fire engine red, but that with the gigantic hip bow gives her a decidedly “Christmas present” look. Second, virtually all of the textural interest is gone except for that little strip over her left boob. Again, it makes the dress a lot less interesting. Plus, that strip over the boob almost doesn’t make any sense anymore. It worked when the bow and the skirt picked up the same detail, but it just kind of stands out for no reason now.
Oh, and we like the shoes but the bag looks like it was made from scraps left over from the dress and that’s never a good thing.
