Rachel Weisz is only the most flawless person in the history of the universe, so it’s understandably difficult for me to see her sartorial choices from an objective point of view. She could be wearing a fringed, spangled, red-white-and-blue Liberace-inspired costume and I’d be like, “Yes! I love it! So fresh!” The tiered Nina Ricci gown she wore to the premiere of “The Bourne Legacy” at the Deauville American Film Festival over the weekend definitely lacks that trademark Liberace panache, but one (not me) could argue that it does in fact look like dust ruffle upon dust ruffle upon dust ruffle.
I’m having a hard time deciding if I like the actual dress or not (like, if it were my loathed Lea Michele wearing it, would I think it was dreadful, or would I at least compliment her on her good work not wearing Marchesa?) but one thing is for certain — Rachel is so damn pretty! I will be debuting an angled middle part just like this one at my next formal function, i.e. probably never.
