What is with those Gossip Girl girls this week? First Blake has a bra faux pas, and now Leighton looks all sorts of crazy in a lace jumpsuit. What would the people at W think?! Seriously, let’s discuss Leighton cuckoo outfit choice for last night’s Harry Winston cocktail party.
But before we lay into Leighton, we need to confess something. When we saw pictures of this lace jumpsuit from Marchesa‘s spring/summer 2011 presentation back in September, we really liked it! We thought it “read as artful instead of skanky.” Looking back at the picture, we stick by our original assessment — it really is beautiful. However! This is exactly the kind of piece that simply does not translate from the runway to the real world. Case in point: Leighton.
We may have lamented that she’s played it too safe in the past, but the we didn’t want her to take it this far. The jumpsuit makes the slender star look oddly hip-y. While the model from the Marchesa presentation looks tall and graceful, the jumpsuit messes with Leighton’s proportions. The worst offense, however, is undoubtedly the booty-exposing back of the ensemble. Truly bizarre. Also, what is with that weird ball of a bag?
Because we feel bad hating on Leighton, we will say that we think her shoes look cool. But they in no way redeem her almost naked butt.
What do you think? Is this outfit awful or awesome?
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
