Let’s get to the dress. What do you think? Here’s what I like about it. I like the draping, the asymmetry, and the very unexpected way the contrast colors work; with the black on back wrapping forward into the bodice. What I don’t like about it. I think it’s about 4 inches too short on Katie on the shortest part of the hem, and the cut is, well, kind of unusual. Unless Katie is pregnant in real life (oops I just blew the story line), then this dress seems too baggy. Maybe it is supposed to be a looser fit, if so, I’m not a huge fan. Which is unusual because I LOVE Helmut Lang, and I also love how Katie looks in just about everything. Or maybe if the fit is intended to be looser then it may work better on someone like Carolyn or Steffy. I find myself wanting to love it, but I can’t. Maybe on Monday it will grow on me.
