Kristin Davis in Vintage Dior
Oh, we feel awful, kittens. What have we done to poor Kristin? See, we’ve been ragging on her for years because she dresses too … we won’t say “young,” but … well, okay. Maybe we did say she dresses too young once or twice, but what we meant was that she dresses like she did 5, 10, 15 years ago. Sarah Jessica Parker occasionally lapses into Carrie Bradshaw-style dressing, but not nearly as much as Kristin does with her persistent mid-’90s Charlotte York style rearing its head years past its expiration date.
But Kristin, honey, this was not the way to go.
Kristin Davis attends the 2012 Dubai International Film Festival, Dubai Cares and Oxfam “One Night to Change Lives” Charity Gala in vintage Christian Dior.
Sure, it’s Dubai and we suppose you have to expect a more conservative style on the red carpet, but this is pure politician’s wife. Elderly politician’s wife. This would look frumpy on Helen Mirren and she’s two decades older than Kristin. Everything is making us sad, from the twee little shoes to the too-heavy necklace to the doll-like makeup to that stiff and wrinkled bodice. We would have told her to keep the jacket, scrap everything else, and start over.
Miss Kristin, when we said to find a new style that suits you now, we meant NOW, not 30 years from now, hon. There are a couple stops along the way as you travel from “ingenue” to “grande dame.”
