Karolina Kurkova In Camilla and Marc – Victoria’s Secret Hosts Russell James’ “Angel” Book Launch

Karolina Kurkova In Camilla and Marc - Victoria's Secret Hosts Russell James' Angel Book Launch

Karolina Kurkova attended Russell James’ “Angel” book launch, hosted by Victoria’s Secret on Wednesday (September 10) in New York City.

It’s safe to say that this Camilla & Marc Resort 2015 dress was not what I was expecting this Victoria’s Secret angel to wear—and I wish she hadn’t.

I’m guessing she was going for a punk-grunge aesthetic, what with the plaid, the Jennifer Fisher choker necklace and the wet-look, stringy hair.

But the shapeless, strapless silhouette and strange black skirting did nothing to enhance this statuesque stunner’s figure. I remain perplexed at this ill-suited style selection, but will count it as an off day, whilst remembering far more striking statements such as her recent Fashion Rocks 2014 ensemble.

At least she didn’t wear black pumps. The sunny yellow heels are the only bright spot here.

    That is one terrible dress. Not even a super like Karolina makes this work.

    Wow, this is really bad. Turns out that even Karolina can’t pull everything off.

    This is horrendous, but the dress looks like a bad Home Ec project even on the model. This is case of KK’s bad choice, and Camilla and Marc’s bad design.

    Awful

    Shockingly bad!!!! Oh no

    This is just hideous from head to toe. From the straggly hair to the awkward fit to the yellow pumps, which do nothing to lift the outfit.

    What is happening to her? She hasn’t wow-ed me since the MET Gala.

    Wow. this is bad. Could hardly believe this is Karolina. She looks so dowdy and it makes her look short. strange

      +1 I am really shocked. This is the worst I have seen her look.

    This is an astonishing misstep on KK’s part.

    I just am left speechless and baffled. I was actually filled with anticipation that she would turn up at this event, seeing as how she’s featured in the book. but … i guessed that she would go the bombshell route and wear a jaw-dropping Versace or something, not this disaster.

    i feel like she was trying to go against type. trying to be more “fashiony” instead of “Sexy”. but it’s a big fail. and – as a KK superfan – i RARELY use those words to describe her red carpet appearances.

    Oh wow this is terrible. I’ve never seen her look like this to be honest, this dress is so not her, I don’t get it.

    Whoa! That outfit looks like she lost a bet….and she looks pretty pissed that she didn’t win.

    I see everyone is beginning to rock these chokers. So far the only one who’s looked good in them is Rihanna when she was on vacation.

    ITA. The yellow pumps are the only ray of sunshine here. From the dowdy plaid to the out of place choker and horrible hair – the whole thing is baffling and unflattering.
