I agree! She doesn’t appear too confident/comfortable in this outfit. I’m not a fan of this look in all honesty, beautiful girl but not a fan of the dress! The shoes however.. where are these beauties from?
I’m sorry but those have to be two of the most unattractive outfits I’ve ever seen. The first one is tailored for a clown, or perhaps a figure from a Bosch altarpiece, and the other looks like an extra from the “Tek Noir” bar scene in the original “Terminator” film.
Love to see photos of Dr. Aerin all decked out, Love Rodarte,but I think the strong design of the cloths are wearing her. She would have looked much better if she broke the look up, by maybe pairing the skirt with a simple shell or blouse or by pairng the jacket with a stove pipe black pant in black or hot pink a nice clean line for for the drama up top. Her hair and makeup I feel were to much as well she young and beauty and has amazing skin.
Hm. The first one looks indeed like a candy — including pink wrapping and ribbons. It’s a bit hard to imagine how you could stand in front of a mirror and not realize this. Yes, this lady spent thousands of dollars, but in my opinion mis-invested. It’s all nicely matched and thought through, but the global effect of the look is just one thing: candy-esque.
The second one looks fun and a lot more creative, in particular the dress has an awesome simple cut and shoes/bag are well-matched. The hair has a touch of madness, which is just right.
It’s a fine line, between embarassingly overdone looks and creative ones. It probably runs between these two shots.
rodarte has BEAUTIFULLY made clothes. it’s amazing to me that the designers are so young (and i’m assuming have less of a budget, but i could be wrong, to work with) and produce time after time whimsical yet real clothes for women.
I don’t like either of these dresses, but perhaps they are some sort of high fashion thing I wouldn’t understand? The first one is so over the top, it looks like Cruella DeVil going to the prom in an 80s teen movie (though the hair is incredibly sleek). The contrast between her restrained expression and all that volume is straight up comical.
In the second look, I like the pattern and color of the dress but the waist and opening of the top is bizarre and I don’t know what’s happening with those shoes. Are they wedges? Heels? Is that a tie in the back? If anybody can name them, I’d be appreciative, because I’m intrigued.
First photo: beautiful woman, beautiful clothes, but not together. She looks immobilized by the sheer volume of the jacket and skirt. Might look great worn separately. Second photo: young, hip, and fun. I have yet to catch on to the current craze of wearing booties. I fail to see what it adds, and so few can wear it.
Other than that, you have a great eye, and your site is the first one I read with my morning coffee.
Photo #1. This suits can be worn by a very, very rich 80 years old. These ruffles will hide saggy chin and neck perfectly, and puffy sleeves will cover up boney arms. Purple croco-ish bag adds even “old-ladyish” feeling (and this doesn’t mean it is “classic”). Not a costume for 30-40 somethings….
i love in the second picture how that combination would be nothing special in typical colors, ie black boots, grey dress.. but the yellows tie in so well with her coloring. she is pulling the same trick as the woman in one of my favorite sartorialist photos.. she wore an all black outfit but her auburn hair perfectly matched her boots. i think matching hair and shoe color can really make an outfit.
Well, this just proves context is everything. Dr. Lisa Airan actually looks quite beautiful in this stunning Pierrot-like outfit from Rodarte. But she is definitely in the wrong place and time. I can’t imagine any Rodarte outfit out on the street in the daytime — certainly not that street with a backdrop of a gray garage door.
A woman wearing Rodarte should glide from the door to a waiting car, be driven to the event, be handed out of the car and then glide up the carpet to welcoming music and twinkling lights.
Even in the proper setting, however, there is one off note — the Louboutin shoes. The signature red sole totally clashes with the handbag!
Not crazy about the first picture. It looks as though she’s trying way too hard. But I love the colour palette of the second outfit. So fresh and breezy. She looks comfy and natural but thoughtfully put together at the same time. Lovely skin too.
The first (white) dress is gorgeous but I think there is too much details on it. A jacket as complicated in structure as that does not need much. I would take the bow ties out and keep it clean and tight.
The first one looks like a costume, or one of Joan Collins’ more insane get-ups from the ’80s. The shape is very unflattering. I do covet the purple bag, but it’s too matchy-matchy with this ensemble. And to top it all off, the lady wearing all this looks uncomfortable and unhappy.
I would have liked the second one much more without the suede booties, and if she had styled her hair in a much less “busy” way. I like the dress and tank top together, but there’s just too much going on here–the long, feathered earrings; three necklaces; and the feather in her twisted, asymmetrical hairstyle. She looks like she’d be fun to go have drinks with, but her look’s in need of editing.
photo 2: I believe it is the same girl we saw in the red dress and fabulous shoes a little while back. She’s holding the sunglasses she was wearing in the previous shot, has the same lovely smile, not to mention the same markings on her legs… In the first shot, she absolutely took my breath away. What transpires for me in both shots is the same engaging and delightful presence, and her innate sense of color and fashion.
That really doesn’t look like Dr. Airan to me, but anyhow … I would love the jacket with some black pants and the skirt with a black turtleneck, or something along those lines. The second one is cute, happy and rockin’ it.
Pic #1: Love the 30 cm Violet Croc birkin, it’s absolutely fab. However, she matched so much the outfit that it looks overdone and too prepared for the pic. She worked too hard on the total look and it’s not natural elegance, not chic at all. Style should not look forced.
