Imogen Poots In Prada – ‘I Kill Giants’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

I was pleasantly surprised by Prada recently, with Jessica Chastain’s captivating gown at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival.

But, my brief love affair ended abruptly when Imogen Poots entered the film festival circuit for the ‘I Kill Giants’ TIFF premiere last Saturday (September 9), as I was quickly reminded why Prada can be a difficult sell on the red carpet.

It wasn’t just the lacklustre silhouette of the dress, but also the unflattering satin-y fabrication and the haphazard fringed beading that were problematic.

Add to that the black platform pumps and a messier approach to hair and makeup, and it’s a recipe for a redo. There isn’t anything I’d salvage here.

    I think its the pose also her styling.
    Maybe be someone else like Jaime King wore this she might pull this off better.

    That is one astonishing lack of posture 😐 But I’ve got an inkling no amount of good poise was going to save this dress.

    The cheap-ish fabric and jarring chunky black shoes is one thing, it’s her poor posture and lack of poise that let the look down (it’s almost Lena Dunham’s level) and also the fit seems a tad tight through the hips, the simple silhouette of the dress is not an issue here.

    Very unflattering. I hope it’s caused by the pose/stance/slump.
