In or Out: Bryce Dallas Howard in Elie Saab
Bryce Dallas Howard attends the premiere of “Hereafter” during the 48th New York Film Festival held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City in Elie Saab.
We’re not sure how to assess this one. Taken on its own, it’s a pretty drab dress. We’re all for unusual colors on the red carpet (really we are) and we’ll admit that it does work for her coloring, but it’s not exactly a fun or attention-getting hue and whether starlets want to admit it or not, you dress on the red carpet to get attention. Design-wise, it’s just okay. Another Wilma dress with another big ruffle.
On the other hand, the hair and makeup are great (although her face is a little shiny) and we like that she went understated on the jewelry here. Really, our only complaint is with the color. It’s a big complaint, because it’s the first thing people notice and it “sets the tone” for the outfit, but we can’t look at a woman that looks as pretty as she does and declare her anything but an IN even though we think the outfit is only so-so. Sometimes a so-so dress is all a girl needs if she’s got it going on.
