The Carpetbagger’s Weekly Case Studies

Taylor Schilling in Technicolor embroidered sheath

This dress is awesome!  Its fresh and exciting, not to mention a real work of art!  I see so many sources of inspiration in this beauty and love every last bit of it.  From tropical fish, to scuba inspired, to art nouveau this embroidered sheath aces it!  Taylor did a great job at keeping it simple with laid back hair and makeup.  She’s smart in letting the dress shine all on its own.

Malin Akerman

Just one question: Ho ho anyone??

The delicious Hostess dessert

Mm, not so much Lea Michele.  I think I can (maybe?) see where you were trying to go here, but girl you aimed wrong this time.  Now I am all for sheer black laced ensembles, if done in a flattering and appropriate fashion, but this aint that.  First of all it looks a smidgen too tight for Lea up top, which is a shame cause she clearly really does have a smoking body, but a proper fit is of mucho importante.  Second of all I can’t tell what’s going on with that bra/tank top situation underneath and it’s really distracting!  My eyes go straight to those white straps on her shoulder and ruin any graceful flow this trend should always possess.  My last problem with this dress is the length.  Tea length is workable at times but its tricky and best served on the tall, lanky type.  Not to say that Lea couldn’t potentially pull one off, but without the right fit there’s very little hope to be had.

Camilla Belle in Chanel

Camilla Belle is one of my absolute favorites to watch.  Besides the fact that she makes fun, yet wise fashion choices, she is ridiculously gorgeous.  I mean fucking stunning!  Her styling for this look is superb.  Between the 60’s inspired makeup, poufed hairdo, and subtle accessories, this dress looks like it was made to be worn on Miss Belle.  Ever so ladylike, but not the least bit dowdy, the actress rocks this Chanel dress.
