Jessica Pare In L’Wren Scott – People/Time Party

Jessica Pare In L'Wren Scott - People Time Party

Jessica Pare attended the PEOPLE/TIME Party on the eve of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Friday evening in Washington, DC.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a dress from her favourite designer of the moment, L’Wren Scott.

Her black dress with gold lattice detailing was from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection.

I don’t know if it’s the pose, the styling or the dress, but nothing is working for me here.

For someone who creates such form-fitting frocks, this L’Wren Scott look makes Jessica look very boxy.

To make matters worse, her makeup looks very ghostly.

She can do better; her Antonio Berardi gown at the main event proves that.

    Boxy is indeed the right word. Not liking this look.

    On the model the dress is form fitting and flatters the figure. On Ms Pare, the dress looks like a uniform, and the severity of the hair and makeup contributes further to this effect. The bodice is so ill fitting on her it looks like a boxy jacket.

    Jessica Pare has always stumped me a little, as she is so so gorgeous on Mad Men, but tends to not look quite right on the red carpet? I think it comes down to her posing in part- she tends to look a little awkward and unpracticed? Like in this outfit if she had her hands on her hips, it would reduce the boxy look. I also think she has looked her best when she has waist definition-she looked lovely the previous Jason Wu’s designs. Anyway, love her on the show, I’m rooting for her to be a red carpet favourite eventually!

    This look is aging her terribly. I keep expecting her to say “I’m ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille.”

    I like this dress just not on her.

    It could be more flattering but there’s something about the look I like…hmmm…

    Perhaps I like uniforms. I actually love this.. and I rarely appreciate L’Wren Scott.

    I don’t think it makes her look boxy but it’s in fact so constricting and severe, it ages her.

    wrong length.

    Just like the her last L’wren outing she should have worn gold pumps. I don’t think this pose shows off her figure to best effect either.
