Jaime King in Proenza Schouler
It’s been very Cannes-y and gown-y around these parts lately, so let’s amuse our bouches and close out the week with something a little less high-falutin’, shall we?
Proenza Schouler Spring 2012 Collection/Model: Kinga Rajzak
Giuseppe Zanotti Mesh Sandal
Oh, sorry. That was kind of immediate and definitive, wasn’t it? It just sort of slipped out. Of our fingertips.
That skirt is fabulous – in fact, that whole look is fabulous – but we really don’t think this works on her, in this setting. You can hike that skirt right up to your underboob, honey. Still doesn’t change the fact that you went to a party in a fancy bra. And it’s not a pool party or a beach party.
Put her in South Beach next to a pool and a DJ and she’d look fabulous, but first she’d have to lower that skirt to a more flattering level, the way God – and Proenza Schouler, obviously – intended it to be; ditch those ladylike shoes for something a little more fun, totally rethink the hair and makeup, slap on some costume jewelry, and spray on a light coat of paint.
So in essence, our initial response turned out to be the correct one. Funny how that works.
