On the Fence
I'm not even skewering Octavia for this Tadashi gown, which is perfectly fine. I'm just fed up with designers only being able to clothe full-figured women in mother-of-the-bride matronly clothes.
And last but not least, I wanted to give Shailene Woodley kudos for daring to wear a print, especially because it conjures the hibiscus flowers in her movie's posters. BUT I thought her L'Wren Scott managed to make a very skinny girl look a little wide; the neckline is awkwardly low and maybe even off-center; her hair and lack of accessories seemed like after-thoughts and it just didn't look great on TV. Nice try, better luck next time.
