Katharine McPhee In Carven – The Today Show

Katharine McPhee In Carven - The Today Show

Katharine McPhee made a guest appearance on the Today Show on Tuesday in New York City to promote the second series of her hit show ‘Smash’, which premiered on the same evening.

The actress wore a dress by a brand which is universally loved – Carven.

Her Spring 2013 guipure lace dress, with a racer front, cut-out midsection, and a full skirt with tonal organza underlay, was muted for daytime TV with a white blazer.

You may be thinking, what is the point of wearing an interesting dress if you are going to cover it up on TV yet still have your stomach showing, and I would agree.

In saying that, I do like the look, especially when paired with my favourite shoe designer of the moment, Aquazzura.

Her ‘Sexy Thang’ suede sandals, which I also own in electric blue (of course), add some fierce femininity to her chic daytime TV look.

Pink lips and a wavy lob provided the finishing touches.

    I love this dress but do not like it with the jacket- it could be the contrast of the white of the jacket but I don’t think the shoes work with the dress because they look dirty and dull

    I mostly like this look. It has a nice soft feel, the blue is lovely on her, and the jacket makes it a bit more professional. The shoes are cool but seem a bit casual with the jacket. I really dislike the stomach cutout, however. It’s odd and unflattering.

    This isn´t working for me from the neck down.

    Talking about flesh-baring on TV, what do you think about the Grammys guidelines for this year’s show? Any outfits you like that would be banned?

    I like this. She is becoming quite the style darling.

    I would’ve loved to see this without the blazer, because I love the dress and the shoes are great. I also love her hair and makeup.

    I find the stomach cut-out quite an annoying distraction but

      *I like everything else. I’d have put the hair up in a bun or ponytail.

      Also- Catherine, your blue version of those shoes are amazing, especially the heel!

    I like her hair, her shoes (though your electric blue ones are to die for, FC!) and the color and lace of the dress, but not the stomach cut out and sheer skirt. I also don’t know if I’d have chosen a WHITE blazer…maybe a navy one?
