Jagged Little Hem

May 27, 2008 at 3:17 pm (Natalie Portman, Stripes) ()

First I’ll say that I love Natalie Portman’s fashion sense. She goes for  edgy choices. The downside is that (occasionally) those edgy choices won’t work out. Unfortunately, this is one of those choices.

I like the idea of the dress. And I usually like stripes. It is accessorized impeccably. Everything other than the dress looks great.

But on a slow celeb-photo weekend, this dress gets the ax. The stripes are sewn with an exposed, jagged, raw hem so it looks like she is wearing the dress inside out. The fabric looks like muslin. I know Ms. Portman likes to earthy and organic materials, but this isn’t appropriate for an evening look. And the gathering around the midsection doesn’t make any sense.
