Love It Or Leave It: Naomi Watts’s Stella McCartney Dress?

By: Rachel Krause / December 21, 2012

This Stella McCartney dress is so typical of the designer in that at first glance it’s totally fine, even good, but upon further inspection something is just off. And once you see it there’s no turning back. For me, it’s the proportions โ€” the fitted suit-like top becomes a big, tulip-shaped (faux leather) balloon skirt with a seriously awkward length that makes Naomi Watts seem like she has a normal-sized torso and the legs of a munchkin. I can’t pinpoint it, but there is something about the unflattering below-the-knee cut and ankle booties that I find very unsettling. I mean, Naomi looks amazing, and she’s wearing the look as well as it can be worn, but there is something fundamentally wrong at play here. What do you think?
