Polly Pockets

I am not sure who started the pockets-in-evening-wear idea, but this dress takes it to a whole new level. There are very few absolutes in life, but here is one: pasting some big ‘ol pockets on you boobs are NEVER a good idea. Never. Ever.

I like the color combination. I don’t mind the cut of the dress, although it looks a little blousey on top. But the open back really does nothing for me.

The look isn’t horrible. But it isn’t stellar either. And we are accustomed to a lot more from Ms. Longoria!

Liked it at first

The first photo I saw of Michelle Monaghan in this dress was only waist up, and I liked it well enough.

Then I saw this full-length photo and my heart sank. The top really does nothing for her and the skirt is atrocious. Her hips look gi-normous in relation to her waist and bust. And why is the lining two inches shorter than the skirt hem?

I also realized that there is a sheer “undershirt.” It reminds me of figure skating costumes. And I doubt that she is planning to do any triple lutzes on the red carpet.

I think the necklace is a tad heavy for a gauzy and light dress.  It looks like a Purple Heart medal strung on a railroad track.
