This month’s In Style magazine awarded its best dress dress prize to this Valentino Haute Couture number.
I could write a list of reasons why I couldn’t carry this dress off, including its billowy unhygienic groundscraping hem and that jawline-tickling collar. Truth be told, I’d much prefer the poofy pink dress from the mid-80s Carefree ads, of which it reminded me.
The ruffles and sheen are much more flattering. And golly, she just looks happier.
