Nicole Richie In Zac Posen – 2017 Kennedy Center Honors

Nicole Richie looked regal at the 40th Kennedy Center Honors event on Sunday (December 3) in Washington, DC.

The ‘Great News’ actress’s signature bohemian style was given a black tie twist courtesy of this Zac Posen Spring 2018 gown.

The silvery blue top layer tempered the dramatic floral embroidery and gave the directional cut a timeless quality.

I would have loved to see this in motion to get a better sense of the contrasting lining on the train.

Secondly, I wish it was tailored ever so slightly as it feels a little big in the bodice.

    Looks good on the model but overwhelming on Nicole.

    She definitely was not the right person for this dress. It looks great on the model but Nicole is too tiny, too slight for this dress.

    The colors are disjointed and it’s making her body look awful,Nicole can do better

    She looks ridiculous…she’s way too short for this dress and it’s obviously way too big on her. It’s a weird dress to boot.

      +1 Agreed.

    I like the dress, different, interesting but it look two sizes bigger on her.

    Bias cut gone wrong. It’s a take on a classical Balenciaga evening gown ( Cate Blanchett wore another version of it some years ago) but the execution leaves much to be desired.

      I thought of that dress as soon as I saw it on the lookbook. I agree, plus on Nicole it just looks bigger than her appropriate size.

      YES! The Zac Posen is a cheap-looking copy and the fit makes it even worse.

        Those small things that separate the geniuses from the rest…

      I thought of the Balenciaga as soon as I saw the pic, although I didn’t remember exactly which design it reminded me of. I trusted that you would unearth the original.

      Calling this “a take” on something is an understatement. Cheap ripoff. And how someone can turn up at a high-profile event with such ill-fitting clothes is beyond me.

        Sometimes I’m not sure if my memory is a curse or a bless in disguise…

    The fit is awful!
    Looks like she stole the dress from someone twice bigger than her, she looks ridiculous.

    You can’t go to the Kennedy Center Honors event in ill-fitting clothes. I would think Nicole Ritchie would do better than this for that event.
