She wore a look from designer Simone Rocha’s Fall 2012 collection, which was actually the young up-and-comer’s first runway show.
The boyish shape of the sharply cut dress got a dose of peek-a-boo provocativeness with its bra-flashing, sheer sides. But the shiny fabric didn’t photograph as richly as I would have liked.
The Irish actress pared down the model’s styling by skipping the frilly neck collar and the towering crochet hat. While those accessories might have been out of place, just as puzzling was that ponytail with its ’90s crimping.
Saoirse did, however, steal those purposefully clunky brogues with the Perspex soles straight off the runway, which definitely put the street in this statement. The starkness of the white shoe didn’t work so well here, though.
They also reminded me of a more intentional version of Kristen Stewart’s infamous red-carpet Converse kicks.
