Friday's Fashion Fails: Julianna Margulies and Florence Welch
Oops... even celebrities get it wrong sometimes! We're telling you why Julianna Margulies and Florence Welch's fashions fell short in our weekly feature. Learn from the stars' sartorial slip ups!
Julianna Margulies plays The Good Wife on TV, but she moonlighted as a badly dressed bird at the Robert F. Kennedy Center For Justice And Human Rights Ripple Of Hope Awards in NYC. The actress channeled Black Swan in this black, white and feathered creation by Bottega Veneta from their Fall 2013 collection.
We're not into this avian-inspired look. The stark contrast from black feathers on the bottom to a white tank makes Julianna look like she's a molting crow or an animal who just survived an oil spill. When a model wore this on the runway, it hit right at the knee but this sample size must be too big for the actress. Her version hits mid-calf, creating an awkward length, and is too loose throughout the hips.
The final verdict? This dress may be for the birds, but Julianna's chic updo and bright pink lips are saving graces to the lackluster look. Her drop-diamond earrings also add a sparkly and pretty touch.
Florence Welch dared to go bare when she stepped out to the Love Magazine holiday party in London. Her sheer ensemble looked more like lingerie or a sexy pajama set than something that's meant to be worn to a holiday party.
This outfit, which shows off her granny panties underneath, is actually by Marios Schwab and features bell bottom pants and a cape-like top. Lacy cutouts are certainly on trend but a head-to-toe see-through look is a little much. The "Dog Days Are Over" singer's revealing look was accessorized with a straight out of the '80s necklace: a choker, which comes as part of the jumpsuit.
The final verdict? This is a classic case of one piece of clothing that's trying to work in way too many trends. Head-to-toe lace plus a cape plus bell bottoms and a choker equals overdose! We'd suggest trying one sheer piece, such as pants or a top, and adding a cape on top of a more simple outfit for next time.
