Runway To “Carries War” Press Night – Michelle Ryan In Michael Kors

Posted by Catherine Kallon

Former “Eastenders” and “Bionic Woman” actress Michelle Ryan arrived at the “Carries War” press night in London last night, wearing a red and navy blue colourblock Michael Kors sheath dress from the Spring 2009 collection.

This collection was full of red white and blue pieces, with touches of yellow and black through into the mix.

The dress is sold with the white patent belt and I really wish Michelle had worn it, because the dress has a much better silhouette with the belt.

Gold bangles and a black pumps complete this look.

Do you think her dress looks better without the belt?

    Definitely the belt. It’s just much more interesting with the 3rd color thrown into the mix.

    I like the dress without the belt. Agree with shoeaholic about the nautical look being too predictable.

    The belt makes that dress very interesting. I love it.

    The dress looks much better with the belt.

    I like the runway version better! However, the red lipstick and clutch wins my vote! =]

    I beg to differ! The dress looks great with the belt but I feel the belt is a bit predictable, with the whole red white and blue nautical theme.. She looks stunning, she really made the dress work with the matching lipstick!

    What about the shoes? In my opinion black shoes combined with navy in your clothing are seldom a good thing. There are exceptions, of course, but I really dislike these shoes with this dress. (Excuse me for bad English, i’m not a native speaker:-)

      I’m not a fan of the shoes. Black and navy do not work for me either

    I don’t think it is the belt that is the problem. It would be fine w/out the belt if the midsection was not as long (look at the model, the midsection is much shorter) and if she brought the hem abover her knee (I feel like I’m a broken record from yesterday with Marion!). That would define her waist better. I am starting to feel like the belt is being over used right now on dresses (thanks Michelle ;-)).

    the dress loses all its appeal without the belt.

    Before even reading your comments, that was the fisrt thing I thought upon seeing the picture. Also, I argee with Lexa about the length. Very disapointing in general, especially since we can see on the model how fabulous this dress can make a woman’s body look.

    Belt for definate, it defines her waist with black around her middle she looks square. beautiful dress though

  12. Sara June 25, 2009 at 2:52 pm #

    Belt all the way. I was thinking it before you mentioned it.

  13. Lexa June 25, 2009 at 2:49 pm #

    The belt makes that dress very interesting, without it’s just blah … šŸ˜‰

    Definitely with the belt. And the dress should have been shorter (knee-length like on the model). Don’t Hollywood starlets have tailors?!

    • Fashion Critic June 25, 2009 at 2:53 pm #

      She’s not so Hollywood anymore šŸ˜‰

  15. Rachel June 25, 2009 at 2:27 pm #

    I love the look with the belt. Without it? not so much. It’s not as interesting.

  16. christian June 25, 2009 at 2:24 pm #

    no, she should have worn the belt, it makes the dress look so much better and giving her more of a waist.

  17. Harris Helen June 25, 2009 at 2:06 pm #

    DEFINITELY better with the belt. Just looks more polished!
