The Spring 2013 Gucci collection was revered throughout the fashion world, with its dramatic ruffles and bold jewel tones – there was no way it would not be a hit. Actresses have flocked to the collection, with 3 appearances within a few of each other (3 on the same red carpet). But after seeing the images, I have to ask – does the collection translate well to the red carpet? Let’s have a look.
Jessica Biel wore a black halterneck column gown with layered ruffles which run along the neckline and back to the LA Premiere of Hitchcock. While the dress looks pretty good on the model, it falls flat on Biel. We all know Jess has a bangin bod, so if a dress doesn’t work on her, the rest of us can forget about it. Although I do think it’s mainly due to the length and fit around the waist that this doesn’t look amazing. If the dress is taken in and hemmed an inch or two it might have worked. Right now it just seems to be overwhelming her and not making the right impact. And the hair is a bit matronly. A slicked back chignon is what you need sister.
Ok this is one I just don’t understand. Cameron wears a very retro mini with bell sleeves and a waist belt at the LACMA Arts and Film Gala. Cameron has the height and body to make this work, but unfortunately the fit is all wrong. This is a hot mess if I ever saw one. Again – slicked back hair is needed with these dresses because they have so much character on their own. It really upsets me to see Cameron like this because she has always been one of my style stars. I do love her Gucci necklace and heels though.
The stunning Rosie Huntington Whiteley is the only one who works her dress flawlessly. She wears an emerald green dress with gorgeous ruffles cascading down the back to the same event as Cameron. This gown has very daring splits down the side but Rosie still manages to make it look classy. A chignon, barely there makeup and Gucci sandals + clutch completes the look.
I’m dying to see the python print ensembles on the red carpets now.
