This is what happens when good clothes happen to people without stylist.
Former Bond girl Gemma Arterton held her engagement party with her Italian fiancÃ©e only known as Stefano, at “Sun & 13 Gantons” Brasserie in London this weekend.
She wore a red – or is it orange – Preen Spring 2009 dress which would be hard for many to pull off, and Gemma does herself no favours with those Britney-like ratty extensions and the dirty red pumps.
I love this dress. It has the tough girl elements on the bodice with the cut-out mesh panels, then it blends perfectly with the textured silk asymmetrical multi-tiered miniskirt.
The result is a dress with loads of fashion savvy and urban attitude.
In the right hands it would’ve been a sexy yet glamorous and sophisticated look.
On Gemma it’s a hot mess.
