Rose McGowan In Ruffian & Ulyana Sergeenko Couture - Garden Brunch & White House Correspondents' Association Dinner

Rose McGowan was in Washington, DC. attending both the 2014 Annual Garden Brunch at the Beall-Washington House and the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton on Saturday (May 3).

Garden Brunch: The actress wore a summery Ruffian white tiered dress styled with a black-and-white oversized Etro clutch and Reed Krakoff shoes. While I like her accessories, I don’t like them with this dress.

White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner: Now this is more like the Rose I know and love. Working a boudoir inspired Ulyana Sergeenko Couture custom gown inspired by the Spring 2014 collection, this gown may not be considered event appropriate, but it is Rose through-and-through. The dual-coloured piece with a champagne coloured bustier and a black draped, central slit train takes me back to a time when she dated Marilyn Manson and risqué gowns were the norm. My only wish is that there wasn’t so much fabric around the waist as it makes her appear wider than she is.
