Wear for art thou Fern?


I couldn’t bring myself to do a full VSR for the TV BAFTAs, it’s just too low rent. Having briefly scanned the rags (dailymail.com) I haven’t seen anything utterly ridiculously hideous, but unsurprisingly nothing that rocks my world either.  I picked our Fern here because she does at least try to do something different than most on the red carpet.

I’m not really sure how I feel about this dress… on the one side we know this lemon colour works well on blondes (one of Kate Moss’s most iconic moments saw a pale yellow chiffon dress nailed with great bed hair).  And this colour doesn’t look exactly bad on Fern, but there’s something missing.  Obviously a lip here would have lifted the look tenfold. A brush wouldn’t go amiss either… this is more tumble in the hay than bed hair, although I love a messy plait. I think it’s the sleeves that are getting to me.  A cuffed semi transparent yellow netting sleeve with pouf shoulder is not a winning look. Neither is the pussy bow neck tie I’m afraid, there is simply too much going on here.  It’s just all too  jaundiced Lady Havisham for me I’m afraid.

  1. I think its the bow with the plunging neck line that bothers me the most. I don’t understand why you would have both on one dress. Either you want to show a bit of skin or you don’t. I feel like if you got rid of the bow and let the boobs show a bit, it would at least be a little bit more Lady Chatterly and a little less Little Bo Peep.


  2. I get that there’s something off about this dress, but I kinda like it.
    I also like the plait. Nice effort I think, a bit unusual.
