Doing the Wiig walk

The Fug Girls, unlike some individuals I could name, don’t mind orange at all, and were delighted to see five orange gowns at the Met Ball. (Right about now, Lynn should start feeling vindicated.) And I like this one, a Stella McCartney job sported by Kristen Wiig:

The shoes (also Stella’s) are somewhat meh, but otherwise this is pretty spiffy, not unlike Wiig herself.

    Yay orange! I like all of them except Katherine McPhee’s dress. My favorite is Ginnifer Goodwin’s.

    She looks like she stripped her grandma’s sofa and ruffled the upholstery around.
    That style only works for very young, slim and tall – and with narrow enough waste so the folds (don’t know the tech. term in English, sorry) around the waste don’t make one look like a wilted cabbage.
    And her arms! Reglain cut does not look good on someone with square athletic shoulders, it exaggerate them to a caricature.
    Her shoes, though, look good, in ensemble

    Agreed on the “grandma’s sofa” comparison, though I’d still defend the outfit as being reasonably suitable to Wiig’s shape: the gathering round the middle gives her some definition to her waist, and the hemline is down far enough to appear to taper her overall pear shape.

    Gathering! that’s the word I was looking for.
    The skirt length is correct, but the wist is not narrow enough for that silhouette.
    If you google images of MadMen January Jones’ costumes, you’ll see what I mean: she can swing (heh) that style. Of course, JJ’s character is a cruder, rougher Grace Kelly wannabee, so maybe for good example I should refer to the source.
    But note even if her dresses are of that silhouette the gathering is very controlled; there is no folds falling any way they want.

    Well, it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.
