F-cking spectacular. Custom Altuzarra. And really, really close to being my best dressed of the night. I’m still debating it actually but we’re all frantically writing and I don’t have time to go back and forth and Duana very impatiently told me to make a decision already. So here’s the justification for it being a close runner-up:
The tailoring is sublime. Every detail is cut perfectly. And yes, for sure, as she said on the red carpet in her interview, girls don’t have to wear dresses. But she also wore a suit at the Critics’ Choice Awards and while this one was much more dramatic, the punch has been taken out of it by its predecessor, a little, right?
But that’s teeny tiny negative that isn’t even a negative. It should be all love here from me. All love. Especially for the way she sells it. This is not just a great tuxedo. This is also great posing in the tuxedo. Evan Rachel Wood knows exactly how much pressure to put into that one pocket, exactly the angle to bend her knee, and exactly the right lean in the shoulder. The effect is a perfect silhouette.
Also, here she is with her boyfriend at the HBO after party. These two are stupid beautiful together.
