Only Sofia Vergara could have rescued this Marchesa. It’s not the dress, it’s all the wearer. On anyone else this is ghastly. But that’s the Sofia silhouette. It’s kind of the same silhouette she’s been working on every carpet for at least 6 months. Of course Sofia is always, always faultless, of course she is. But...

She wore strapless with a bottom flare at the Oscars, the SAGs, the Producers’ Guild, and the Golden Globes. That’s quite a long streak of sameness. I suppose this is the question then: do you kill it in one single shape over and over again with a simple detail or colour switch now and again? Or is it worth trying something entirely different? Some will argue that this is just what her body does best. I don’t know if I buy that. I don’t know if I buy that Sofia Vergara’s body can only do one look best.
