I’m going to need some additional eyeballs and points of view to decide whether this outfit works or not. Suzy went from attending a movie premiere in Korea to attending a couture fashion show in Rome within the span of days, her busy and jet setting lifestyle on full display even as she doesn’t currently have an acting or idol side comeback. I found her stunning at the movie premiere for The Piper, healthy and radiant from romance and dressed in a chic elegant shirt and pants ensemble. I do get why some things she’s styled too old for her age but I thought that look didn’t yet cross that particular line. But this dress may just have.
Suzy was in Rome this week for the Valentino show and the grand opening of the new flagship store, wearing of course a dress from the most recent Valentino fall/winter 2015 collection. It’s best described as patchwork prairie meets biker hippie, maybe heralding a trend for fully covered as opposed to showing too much skin. I think Suzy’s hair and makeup is spot on, the red lips and defined eyes important to look dramatic for the occasion and not get overwhelmed by the dress, but I’m leaning towards finding the dress both too busy and not suited for Suzy in particular. But then again, some dresses photograph really dull but look stunning in person so maybe this one is that? What do you guys think?
If anything, Suzy wearing this dress reminds me of Yoon Eun Hye wearing a Dolce & Gabbana dress at the Missing You press conference, which I thought was dowdy and looked like she was wearing grandma’s curtains sewed into a dress, and others claimed it was glorious since it was a famous couture outfit and all. Just because it’s couture doesn’t mean it looks good, but sometimes the look calls for being impactful rather than beautiful. Still feeling very torn about this particular dress on Suzy, though kudos for looking really comfortable to wear.
