I have often thought that Elie Saab would be one of my first stops should I ever get invited to a big red carpet event again. (I say again because I attended the LA premiere of Sleepy Hollow years ago and sat directly behind Johnny Depp!! Needless to say, I had to watch the movie again on the big screen since I just stared at him the entire time.) In any case, Lea Michelle shared my Elie Saab instinct with her selection for the Kids Choice Awards yesterday. I feel like she's hitting all the high notes here: feminine, youthful, flirty, spring-y, fun. And yet I am not totally in love. I think I can safely attribute my hesitation towards full-out ardor to a few things:
1) A total lack of styling: I love the delicate bracelets but wish she went just a tad further - a sexy delicate chain and/or some delicate earrings would be perfect
2) The sheerness of the bust: enough said
3) The hue of her lipstick: I get that she was going for trendy and fun but the bright purply-pink of this choice is conspiring to upstage the soft pink of her dress
I'm also kinda over sky-high platforms but I won't dock any points for her shoe choice because it works. All in all, I'm dishing out a So-So here. Are you picking up what I'm laying down?
