Lucy Liu In Roberto Cavalli – 2013 PaleyFest: ‘Elementary’ Panel

Lucy Liu In Roberto Cavalli -  'Elementary' Panel

Lucy Liu attended the ‘Elementary’ panel during 2013 PaleyFest: Made In New York at The Paley Center for Media on October 5, 2013 in New York City.

The beautiful actress wore a Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2013 dress which was part herringbone and part vibrant print.

My first reaction was to dislike this look, but this is the classic opulent approach to print and colour that we are used to from Roberto Cavalli. The dress commands attention with the striking baroque design in vibrant tangerine.

Opting for all-black accessories, Lucy carried a Jimmy Choo ‘Charlize’ clutch and wore the popular Saint Laurent ‘Jane’ sandals.

A half-up, half-down hairstyle and flawless makeup provided the finishing touches.

I have a feeling I know the answer to this, but do you love or loathe this look?

    I don’t like the dress, but I also don’t hate it. I absolutely love her hair here, though.

    The dress is hideous.

    I love the dress! the contrast between the grey and the orange is just so interesting. well done Cavalli

    I think if it were tailored correctly to her body, this look would have been a home run.

    I dont love or loathe. I am simply bored to death. Why are people getting excited over this?

      I think she could have done better in choosing an outfit for Paley. Her hair looked messy. She looks good when it’s off her face. She has lovely bone structure but you can’t appreciate it when her hair is not done in a style that is becoming to her.

    What’s not to love?! I think everything about this is wonderful. Great fall dress, but styled to keep it from looking too stuffy.

  7. Kathy October 7, 2013 at 23:41 #

    LOVE the juxtaposition of patterns. She looks great, though I’m not a huge fan of the hair. It’s a bit too voluminous in the back.

  8. TeaAtTwo October 7, 2013 at 23:13 #

    I like this. It doesn’t scream Cavalli.

    I ADORE THIS. This is a BDOTW nominee for me, hands down!!

    I def. like it, the unexpected bright detailing is beautiful and totally makes the look, and Lucy is great in this look. Thumbs up from me.

    I love her hair. Maybe a little over-teased, but nice.

    The dress is not as heavy as it looks. And it was pretty warm in NYC on Saturday – I’d have gone for sandals too. I think they lighten everything up.

    This is Cavalli’s take on lady like chic. It’s ok but if I want Lady like there are far more labels that did it better this season

    I love the dress and appreciate that the styling is kept simple, overall. The hair, on the other hand, feels like it’s competing for attention with the shoulders of the dress — it almost looks like the hair is a weird extension of the dress.

    A sweptback ‘do would have complemented and completed the look for me.

  14. kathryn October 7, 2013 at 17:09 #

    I love the dress! I am on the fence about the hair its a little fussy for such a complicated & vibrant dress.

  15. Hailey October 7, 2013 at 17:06 #

    I actually really like this

  16. Patricia October 7, 2013 at 16:54 #

    I actually like this.

  17. kane October 7, 2013 at 16:20 #

    Feels very heavy and wintery already, but I do like this.

  18. Ashley October 7, 2013 at 16:05 #

    I adore this from head to toe.

  19. naomie October 7, 2013 at 15:43 #

    I think she looks amazing.
    Great hair @ make-up. Love the pattern combo in the dress, this tangerine shade looks great on her.
    BDOTW nominee as far as I’m concerned.

  20. dee October 7, 2013 at 15:27 #

    Don’t care for the dress. The sandals look weird with a heavy, fall-like dress.

    • jokebetweenthetrees October 7, 2013 at 15:41 #

      Agreed, wrong shoes with this dress

  21. Rebecca Z October 7, 2013 at 15:18 #

    It’s growing on me. I see the appeal, but it certainly won’t work for a lot of people.

    • Yeliz October 7, 2013 at 19:37 #

      Agreed. At first glance this dress was a No for me, but now it’s growing on me as well. I don’t like the hair though.

  22. EmmaWoodhouse October 7, 2013 at 14:53 #

    A little loud, though she is doing her best. I think that keeping the belt would have helped.

  23. Charlotte October 7, 2013 at 14:48 #

    I don’t like the dress and I hate the hair !

  24. Alina October 7, 2013 at 14:30 #


    She needs to be on the RC more often.

        + 2!

            This is a perfect panel look. Classic cut but interesting print.
            And I love those sandals.

    • Denise October 8, 2013 at 10:35 #

      I love this dress also! She looks great.

  25. Christine October 7, 2013 at 14:29 #

    Not liking this.
