Looking at Sandra Bullock walking the red carpet at the “All About Steve” LA Premiere last night, I really wanted to say something positive because she picked probably the most difficult dress from the Lanvin Spring 2009 collection.
The multi-coloured strapless cocktail dress has a navy skirt, with pleated bodice of red, purple and nude.
She took a risk like some many actress fail to do, but the risk unfortunately didn’t pay off.
In fact it went horribly wrong, and that was down to the styling.
Firstly the ankle boots were a ridiculous choice with this dress.
I said recently that I hate the ankle boot trend at the moment, and this look proves why because it makes Sandra’s legs look so short and stumpy. A nude pump would have elongated her legs, as would a pair of pointy pumps.
Then I move onto the hair.
We all recognise this hair. This is the type of hair we sport when we just woke up or finished working out at the gym. This is not red carpet hair to complement a complicated dress. It even looks matted in places. *shakes head*
I love Sandy B, but this is my least favourite red carpet look from her and it’s not the fault of the dress.
Don’t blame it all on the dress.
