Taylor Schilling In Zuhair Murad  - The 2014 Vineyard Theatre Gala

Actress Taylor Schilling attended the 2014 Vineyard Theatre Gala yesterday evening (February 24) held at The Edison Ballroom in New York.

The ‘Orange is the New Black’ star wore a body-skimming black Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 dress with lace cut-away detailing. The classic LBD was simple yet sassy but I feel the sleeves and knee-length cut is a little too formal.

Had the dress been more on-trend with a mid-length hem or slightly more daring in its sheer panelling, it would have been a much stronger look.

Taylor’s DVF pumps and embellished box DVF ‘Tonda’ clutch contrasted nicely with the lace on the dress but didn’t quite give the dress the lift it needed.

Very classy and sophisticated, it just didn’t get my heart racing in the same way Taylor’s last Zuhair Murad outing at the Hollywood Reporter’s Next Gen 20th Anniversary Gala offered. Do you agree?
