Gwen Stefani In Carven – 2011 MOCA Gala

The 2011 MOCA Gala on Saturday night was Gwen Stefani’s second red carpet look this weekend.

On this occasion Gwen wore a Carven Spring 2011 dress.

Once again this look has a lot going on.

Her black taffeta dress has an asymmetrical neckline, a sash across the shoulder, a ruched bustier, and a draped tulip skirt.

On paper it should totally overwhelm the wearer, but Gwen’s presence and attitude helps her pull off this look.

The singer/designer kept her top knot from her previous look, and added a black clutch and purple peep-toes.

    Not her best.

    At least she fixed the hair from the previous look and got rid of the 90s style bits at the front. Love this, but probably only on her.

    Gwen has such great personal style that she looks so chic in everything she wears. I wouldn’t wear half the things she wears because I would look silly but on her, Gwen always looks so cool. She makes it very Gwen.

    Good for Stefani. She the kind of woman who wears the statement pieces that you hope some woman will have the guts to wear, you just never want it to be you.

    BTW, I think everyone is getting a better reception on their screens than I am. I couldn’t tell the shoes were purple.

    Total rip-off of Cameron Diaz’s 2009 pink Chanel Haute Couture Golden Globes dress. Shameless and more than a little embarrassing. Neither Cameron’s nor Gwen’s dress do anything for me. Both designs are messy and unfocused.

    She looks amazing, I love the fun hair and make up. This would not be a dress I’d look at twice but with her innate quirky style this works wonderfully on Gwen.. I’m not 100% sold on the shoes with this dress.

    I have never liked a single piece from Carven. Am I the only one who found them overrated??

    I’m not the biggest fan, btu it could ahv ebeen worse. Also ,I think my issue is that I already had this reserved for Chloe sevingy, so I am almost disappointed that she wore it. However, her stylign is good and it accentuates the dress.
    Also, her shoes are Giuseppe, I think 🙂

    Although I hate the dress – I’ll agree with those who said that it looks like a garbage bag -, I think she has the attitude to pull this off – at least, enough to make it look acceptable, instead of horrible.

    Yeah, she’s got personality, but that’s like saying she could wear a sack and still have attitude. Yet this dress is indeed, literally, a sack! A dress that deforms her breasts and hips is not stylish, nor flattering. Imho, nobody could pull this off.

    No matter how ugly an outfit is on paper, somehow Gwen makes me love everything she wears. That’s the mark of a true style icon.

    That hair ruins it. She looks like a pineapple with that mess up there. This has got to be top five in all time worst hair styles. I think it would have been a great look with a sleek top bun. But that ransacked birds nest she has up there evokes trailer trash at the prom.

    i like it a lot. she looks very comfortable in it.

    Love the purple heels (it’s my favourite colour….).

  16. robbie November 14, 2011 at 18:15 #

    the dress looks an absolute mess.

  17. Mol November 14, 2011 at 18:10 #

    She pulls it off but I’m not completely buying into the shoes…..

    I like it and I think she can carry it.

  19. Kelsey mahan November 14, 2011 at 17:24 #

    She looks better than the model in this dress. It reminds me of a stylish garbage bag at the bottom. I wish she did a different color heel

    While she`s def. got the attitude to pull it off, I don`t think she`s got the height to pull off this super bulky skirt – it completely overwhelms her lower body, and the “out of nowhere” purple shoes feel out of place.

    Totally fabulous–BDOTW contender

  22. Rory November 14, 2011 at 17:08 #

    Like Cameron Diaz’s Golden Globe’s pink Chanel dress but so much better. love.

  23. AW November 14, 2011 at 17:03 #

    She looks much better than the model and kuddos for interesting accessories.
