If you think she can still shake it like a Polaroid picture, rate this look! (1-10, 10 is the highest.)

    I give it a 5 overall.

    And I'm gonna break this thang down in just a few seconds. Don't have me break this thang down for nothing.

    I like the silhouette and length of the dress, and her hair/makeup and shoes look elegant. But that neckline and fabric cutouts are distracting and weird. I also don't like the watch with the rest of the ensemble.

    Hmm.. I'm going with a 7. I like the dress style EXCEPT for those cut outs along with the missing middle section. I think if the middle was closed up and the cuts were just left up top that might be neat. I like her hair pulled back off her face and the makeup is sweet and pretty. The shoes are acceptable to me. I'm not understanding the watch though.

    I'd say a 5 as well. I like the bottom of the dress, but I don't get the point of the cut-outs. A scoop neck or strapless with sweetheart neckline would show skin without looking so weird. Like the hair, make-up and earrings. The shoes are OK, but they are too big for her in the back, and I think there are better shoes to be worn with that dress. I also agree that the watch sticks out and not in a good way.

    I like the cut outs but hate the bottom with it. It's like the top and bottom are from 2 different dresses..

    She looks fabulous no matter what she's wearing though.

    The cutouts are distracting...just...too much.

    I love everything else. I don't mind the watch. I figured it was so she could tell time...don't people need to know the time anymore?

    I give her a 6. She could have been an 8 or 9 without the cutouts.

    10. Love the cutouts.love the sillhouette. Love Lucy Liu. Love the simplicity.

    I give it an 8. She could have used a slightly funkier shoe.

    The cutouts + very low-plunging neckline are just way too busy on the same dress. Just the cutouts would have been lovely and striking, or even just the low v-neck, but not both.

    The overall shape of the dress is nice though, or I would have rated it lower.

    I'd give her a 7.5

    It should have been one or the other. The cut-outs with the plunging neckline is to much. Overall I like the length and shape of the dress. I also like the simple black shoe, minimal makeup, and accessories.

    I like it a lot. I even like the wristwatch. I give it a 9. Fresh, original, but not weird.

    Love everything except the cutouts. I give her an 8.

    But really, could she be any cuter?
  • FieryCurlsFieryCurls Registered Users Posts: 2,904

    She would get a 10 if it weren't for the plunging neckline. I don't ever like the plunging necklines. I do love the cutouts and the rest of the look.

    For Lucy I'll give it a 7. It needed either the cutouts or the neckline. Not both. The shoes are classic Lucy. She favors the pointy stilletto. It works for her and it works for the shape of the dress. The bottom and overall design is stylish, the styling and simple accessory solid but again the chest is just too busy.

    I give it an 8.
    I deduct 1 point for the excessive cutouts and 1 point for the lack of cool jewelry and purse. But it all looks great on her. Love the 'non-trendy' shoes and love her legs. And she looks happy and confident.

    I love the dress and am not bothered by the slightly busy combo of plungng neckline and cutouts bc w/o the visual interest it would just be any old boring LBD.

    The shoes are a cop out IMO. (I'm going to assume she was wearing a much better pair when she left out but broke her heel and borrowed these from a bank secretary who happened to be walking nearby lol).

    The watch was an odd choice and my eye keeps landing back there.

    I think it's a little too long for her.
  • SilverCurlsSilverCurls Registered Users Posts: 294
    I'll give her an 8. I love Lucy Liu!

    I'm taking away a point for the excessively busy bodice and a point for a ho-hum choice in shoes.

    I like how the accessories are minimal and love the silhouette of the dress. Hair and makeup are fresh and pretty. And, I kind of like the watch.

    I will give it a 7.5. I love the over all look, but am not crazy with the plunging neckline. That doesn't bother me alone, but on this particular dress (along with the cut outs) it looks out of place.

    Worn out iPhone. Need I say more?
