Melonie Diaz In J. Mendel – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Melonie Diaz In J Mendel – 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards

Melonie Diaz brought a pop of colour to the red carpet of Friday night’s 2013 NCLA ALMA Awards at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California.

Giving us an ‘orange is the new black’ moment, the actress wore a light tangerine J. Mendel halter gown with keyhole detail, a peplum empire waist and a thigh-high slit, which seemed rather unnecessary.

Even though she accessorized with a shot of shine via her metallic platform pumps and clutch, along with golden Marina B jewels, I still found this look to be a bit one-note. Perhaps a bolder lip would have brought some added flavour.

Peachy keen or not?

    Really? One note? Nah, I think she looks really good. I like that color on her a lot, and I thin her styling is just right.

    Nice but bland.

    The creases on the skirt are bothering me. Other than that, it’s a great look. The colour looks amazing against her skin.

      ITA. Plus, I don’t think this is one-note at all.

    Looks a little prom dress to me though I love the color on her.

    The colour is so fantastic that I give the closed in neckline and the slit a pass. For her bust and face, I would love to see this in a V-neck.

    She looks stunning. Like the white nails against the orange.

    I don’t think this was a bad look. My first thought was, she looks a bit like Selena Gomez (face) to me.

    Good styling, awful dress. Very tacky and ill-fitted , although the color is ok. She looks a bit like Selena Gomez.

    I really love the colour and her styling. I don’t like the empire peplum effect or the creases in the skirt. The slit seems a bit pointless to me also. All in ok, this look is just ok.
