We all know Be loves Zanotti. But I was surprised to see her styling this McQ dress. I worship Alexander McQueen, but this dress has no structure, and very little style in my opinion. It looks like a mistaken babydoll dress grabbed off the back racks at Topshop. I’d much rather have Michelle Williams’ hip wardrobe than Be’s flashy wardrobe, but you’d think she’d try something hip from his line for once and not this sad sack of potato-lumpiness fallen off the vegetable truck. Ok, cruelty switch off.
We can all (well, most of us) give three non-snarky cheers for Be’s boots, which are fabulous Zanotti zip ankle boots that I saw at Saks a few weeks ago. Check out the whole outfit’s deets and purchase links here.
I suppose Be wouldn’t really find it easy to wear some of what were my favorite McQ looks with her curvaceous bodacious self. But I would like to see her inject a little Rihannaesque oomph in her divalicious style vixen looks. A little bit of hipness could do her good. As much as I love the Zanottis, they’re pretty predictable, don’t you think? I’d love to see her in lesser known, vintage brands personally picked out for her by a great stylist.
Some of my favorite McQ looks she could have adapted for herself with a tailoring tuck, dart, ruffle or flounce here and there. Just because a look is severe doesn’t mean you have to keep it that way. Sometimes, also, a very feminine, voluptuous body can be very well contrasted with severe looks with occasional feminine touches. I know it’s hard to visualize, but imagine how sexy she’d look in these outfits with some adjustments.
Tailoring at the waist and a different belt on this look would do her right:
A playful flower on the lapel and a sequined or sheer high-necked or lace camisole under this jacket would also do her right:
