Is this a style miss?

Usually I like her style but this looks - to my not stylish eye! - frumpy!

No, I think that dress is great. She looks as lovely as always.

I think she looks fantastic. That dress would look awful on me with my big bottom and flat chest. Loooks fabulous on her.

It's an ok dress. Just ok. Neither a gorgeous dress nor a "who told her that looked good?" monstrosity.

It kind of looks like a lampshade and yet doesn't look frumpy to me. I think it's here confidence and the fact that she smiles - she looks as if she loves her dress and that makes it work IYSWIM.

Good Lord that woman needs to put some weight on.

I feel more sorry for her husband who had to wear a suit even thought it was over 30 degrees.

The dress isn't my cup of tea and she looks way too skinny

Think I need to lurk more on S&B to 'hone' my eye, then!

It's nice - her style has improved since she got married imo.

Love it - suits her very much. Love the straps, too.

Poor old Wills in a sports jacket and tie. angry <---- hot, as opposed to angry, face.

I think it's okay.
I think she's way too skinny and it is making her look MUCH older than her years.

JennyWarrior Tue 28-Jun-11 07:22:20

She's become way too thin, in my opinion. I fear that she's on the verge of becoming skeletal.

She is very slim but she looks very happy.

dress is okay and works because she is so slim. All those ruffles would emphasize even slightly bigger hips into unflattering proportions.

Agree with Ladyword - if someone looks confident they can get away with just about anything: head up, shoulders back, smiling and/or relaxed. One of the biggest style breakers for me is watching women fiddle with their clothes, constantly re-positioning, smoothing and fussing over themselves.

Her make up needs an overhaul though. That heavy eyeliner makes her look older than her years and like she needs a good nights' sleep. Either that or she has "morning sickness eyes"........just sayin'........

I think it's stiff and uncomfortable-looking, not light and breezy like a good summer dress should be. She's SO thin as well. Not healthy-looking.

celticlassie Tue 28-Jun-11 16:30:55

I think it's weird shaped and makes her look like she's wearing big bulky knickers or something. Also agree on the skinny thing - her head's started to look too big for her body.

She looks thinner than I'd like to but I'd really, really like the dress.
