Michelle Monaghan In Valentino – “Machine Gun Preacher” LA Premiere

Michelle Monaghan showcased her newly dyed red locks stateside, after it made its debut during the Toronto Film Festival recently.

The actress opted to wear a Valentino beaded dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her forest green dress had a sheer yoke with beautiful embellishments on the bodice.

Green patent Brian Atwood pumps matched her dress and she carried a Judith Leiber clutch.

Whilst I love the dress on Michelle, plus the colour is divine on her, my first thought was ice-skater.

I always have that feeling when looking at a sheer or illusion yoke. I guess it’s from watching too many Winter Olympics.

    Matchiness strikes again, the green pumps aren`t working for me here (bring in a pair of skates :)
    Love the forest green colour on her esp. with her red hair but really dislike the way the dress sits on her figure, not flattering at all. Wish she`d covered up her awkward looking knees.

    This dress is so cute and the colour is great. I love that she matched her shoes to the dress.

    I like the top half of dress. Not too fond of the matchy shoes or the fringe though.

      I dislike the fringe with a passion: it looks like a ragged curtain. I actually like the matchy shoes, I am a member of the matchy matchy brigade.

    I think the demure length overcomes potential ice-dancer risks. She looks lovely – love how that beautiful colour brings out her eyes.

    I like the dress on her, the horizontal line at the neckline, the beading, and the color, AND I can really see why a person might think this looks like a skating dress. (As a figure skater myself, I don’t find that too detrimental, though…. :-)) Anyway, I think she looks good, but I wouldn’t nominate this as a Best of The Week………

    LOL! Well, I thought I loved it. Now I can’t stop thinking of Nancy Kerrigan.

    Love the yoke, but not the bangs (which just look a mess) or the cut and fit of the bodice, which makes her look bad.

    She looks like she’s at a middle school dance in 1993!

    I am loving her choices lately. She’s on a roll.

    I love her because she hardly gets it wrong or tries too hard and is always understated and this is another example of why I love her. I’m not quite feeling the matching pumps although I am a fan of the matchy-matchy stuff right now but it’s not terrible so I can get past that. She’s my girl crush! I adore this green color!

      The green pumps have grown on me! And I do love her earrings with the dress as well. I feel like there needs to be another color somewhere to break up the green so I’m going to pretend she has a black clutch or perhaps a dark grey or gunmetal one.

    I LOVE it. I love that sheer illusion thing on the bodice, when it’s used in a classy way it can be so stunning. I don’t think ice skater at all. Blue and green are the colors to wear on the red carpet. They look good on everybody and so striking.

    ugly bangs!

    • Alina September 23, 2011 at 18:52 #

      Ditto. I can’t focus on anything else.

      • currygirl September 23, 2011 at 22:26 #

        Thank you! It has to be said…she is not meant for bangs. They really really bug me, especially because her face is so pretty. :-(

  13. Diviya September 23, 2011 at 10:19 #

    This look really ages her. I love the colour, but she needs to get rid of those bangs

  14. Mick September 23, 2011 at 10:23 #

    Agreed on the ice skating costume. Too bad, ’cause I usually really love green dresses. Also, very bad hair and makeup

  15. Jones19 September 23, 2011 at 11:12 #

    I get the ice skater vibe a lot too but not with this rich green color, I usually get it from Ice blue dresses or white ones. She looks wonderful.

    Don’t like her hair at all, the fringe/bangs are too long, ie they start too high on her forehead. She needs to grow them out .. stat. I like the colour of the dress on her, and her earrings look interesting.

  17. D September 23, 2011 at 11:39 #

    love the top half of the dress, not those shoes and hairstyle. also hair colour and lip colour doesnt go together :p

  18. Rach September 23, 2011 at 12:46 #

    I dunno what it is about Michelle but I find her close to unrecognisable every time she changes her hair in any way!

  19. AAA September 23, 2011 at 20:56 #

    Horrible hair!
