Paula Patton In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’ Rio Premiere

The final stop on the promo tour for ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’ took place at the Cine Lagoon in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, last night.

I did hope Paula Patton would go out with a bang, but I knew that was wishful thinking.

The actress donned a summery Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Her yellow chiffon floral dress with rhinestone detailing is beautiful, but it doesn’t work for me.

The tropical nature of the dress feels too contrived considering her location.

Remember how Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wowed us when she wore a sleek black Michael Kors look in Rio for her ‘Transformers’ premiere? I wish Paula had wowed us like that.

I for one am glad this tour is over. Paula’s stylist has given her average looks that have not done her justice.

The only good thing about this tour is that it hasn’t lasted as long as ‘Puss In Boots’.

    Paula is dressing for herself, period. Good or bad, love it or hate it. She carries the look off with so much energy, vibrancy, and that ever-present smile. She is confident and lovely. No arguments from me.

    I am feeling a tad disappointed overall, Paula is a very beautiful women and she has so much potential but I feel that this promo tour has been so average. I really like this dress and while Paula looks quite lovely I still feel that she is far from being at her full potential. Get a new stylist girl, you are beautiful and deserve someone who can access that beauty.

    looking at this, i believe she use another stylist for Dubai in Andrew GN

    Dear Paula,

    You are a beautiful statuesque woman who either can’t dress herself for love or money or is at the mercy of a crazed stylist. Please let me help you. Either let me advise you style-wise or let me pay ransom to the batsh*t crazy stylist. We’re rooting for you.

    • gurlygurl

      LOL!! I second that. She is so stunning and I really wanted her to pick up her game and show us something amazing. I don’t particularly hate this dress.. it’s alot better than some of her choices so far, I’m just not loving it either. Having said that this has been a strange tour..someone pointed out how casual Tom has been on this promo and it would be hard to try to be spectacular against a co-star wearing jeans *sigh*…

  • Jones19

    This look was too predictable, a shame really.

  • Pèrè Lenière

    very beautiful. it looks fun which i think is what a premiere should be about and its also playful as she was with Tom. I do not expect her to dress for the oscars or like someone going for a movie. very appropriate IMO

  • Sea

    I think this is my fave look from her tour – at least it looks classy and elegant, unlike the purple leopard-print Dolce she wore which I thought was disastrous.

    She is sooooo beautiful!

  • Ade

    The one positive thing about this whole disaster is that Salma’s puss and boots nightmare was worse.

  • Overwrought dress, underwrought hair.

  • Luis

    I think you are being mean. She looks beautiful!

    • Fashion Critic

      So if I don’t like something that means I’m being mean?

      With all due respect I don’t agree with your comment at all. I’m actually slightly baffled by it I have just as much right as anyone to say I don’t like a look.

      She can do far better than this. This is a Paris Hilton dress at best.

      • Gigi

        Ooooooh, our FC is feisty today! I don’t mind this one as much as some of the others… but it is a shame… she is lovely and lean and vibrant. Banish the stylist!!

        • Fashion Critic

          I’m not trying to be, but I don’t understand why I’m being mean by saying I didn’t like this dress or the tour overall.

      • hauteness

        I have to agree with FC. This tour was a huge moment in Paula’s career and unfortunately her wardrobe did not do her any justice. I’ve seen her look better than this attending the Grammy’s with her hubby!

  • Nat39

    Lovely colourful dress, would`ve preferred a bit more relaxed hair and more natural makeup with it. It`s a nice look but I agree it doesn`t make enough of a statement to qualify as “to go out with a bang”.

  • la kate

    Who is her stylist? He(she)’s horrible

    • smolls

      I totally agree. I don’t think I’ve liked a single look from this promo tour & I don’t think anything she’s worn has been flattering at all which is a shame.

    • moja31

      she used to be styled by rachel zoe i think, but i doubt her team would put together such a mish mash of lackluster looks for a major promo tour, especially one that’s introducing her to a much bigger audience than she’s had before.

  • dee

    I think she looks beautiful.
