Mena Suvari In Matthew Williamson – Captain Morgan Press Conference

Diageo recently launched a global multimedia campaign for its Captain Morgan spiced rum brand.

Yesterday they named Mena Suvari as the face of the campaign at a press conference which was held at the W Hotel in Polanco, Mexico yesterday.

When I first saw this picture I did some research because I thought it might have been an old picture the agency had bumped.

This is because Mena is wearing a Matthew Williamson dress from the Spring 2008 Native American themed collection which seems like a lifetime ago now.

It’s rare that celebs go back so many seasons.

We are now so used to them wearing Resort 2012; some are even jumping the gun and wearing Spring 2012 now.

Her cool tribal print dress with bold colours and frilly details was paired with gold platform shoes.

I love the dress, but I’m obsessed with her hair.

Not many can pull-off a bowl cut, but Mena does with perfection here.

    I don’t like the hair , but the dress is lovely and summery.

    I am pretty sure this was the collection that made me fall in love with Matthew Williamson, so I am glad to see it being worn again, even though I believe Mena Suvari could have made a much bigger effort with her shoe choice.

    See…this is an unfair battle. Subconsciously, I am comparing Mena’s look to the beautiful Anja Rubik on the runway, and Anja wins in my opinion. While Mena looks great in the dress, I don’t like the gold platforms or her hair.

    FC–I think you described a pair of black shoes like these as hooves not too long ago. I think it fits here–she is wearing gold hooves. She is so petite–these shoes are totally overwhelming. Otherwise, I think she looks cute.

      Those were the Christian Louboutin daffodil pumps which are double the size of Mena’s platform heels.

    This look is a gift from the fashion Gods.

    Finally a celebrity wearing a pattern, no black velvet in the dead of summer, no boring black or nude pumps, no Maniacs, smiling with an adorable yet interesting haircut and no dumb eyeliner!

    Let the church say AMEN!
