The Fashion Peacekeepers: Ophelia Lovibond Is One Risky Ingenue
Sometimes we feel like E!’s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
Never heard of British actress Ophelia Lovibond? You will. This young lady has a whole mess of movies coming out in 2010, and she’s got some kind of Audrey Tautou/Audrey Hepburn/Zooey Deschanel thing going on that people just go nuts for. Judging by what she wore to the premiere of “Nowhere Boy” in London this week, we also have the feeling she’ll have the privilege of ending up on a few worst-dressed lists at some point, too. Would I wear this silky blue, schoolgirl-inspired dress for a red carpet appearance? Eh, no. But then again no one is asking me to walk alongside Kristin Scott Thomas (her costar). It’s a little cray-cray, no doubt, but she looks kind of cute and refreshing. Love the fun matching earrings, plus she gets mega bonus points for thinking outside of the blowout/Herve Leger mini-dress box. Nice job, kid!
