Amy Ryan In J. Mendel – ‘Clear History’ LA Premiere

Amy Ryan In J Mendel - 'Clear History' LA Premiere

Amy Ryan attended the Los Angeles premiere of HBO’s new series, ‘Clear History,’ hosted yesterday at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California.

The actress took a monochromatic approach, looking back a few seasons in fashion history to J. Mendel’s Fall 2012 collection with this A-line cocktail dress that featured a cutout, stained-glass neckline.

Although the off-white hue could be considered more summery, I much preferred the original, more dramatic runway incarnation of this look.

The styling could be much to blame, though, as Amy’s black Christian Louboutin ‘Arnold’ sandals and gunmetal grey Nancy Gonzalez angular box clutch were a harsh and uninspiring contrast for the lighter version of the dress.

A light fuchsia lip did add some flair.

You may remember that Lucy Liu wore the black version almost exactly a year ago.

    ITA that this looked far better in the black, and her version was further let down by shoddy styling. I really like the design of the dress, just not Amy’s presentation of it.

      Haven’t we seen a version of this dress on Nina Dobrev?

    Lucy Liu wore the runway version some time ago, and I liked it better then.

    I like the dress-and on her surprisingly. I like it better in cream–to me it looks kind of cheap in black. I have not problem with her shoes, but the clutch is a downer.
