So you're a Hollywood legend at the 84th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon in Beverly Hills. Stunning face. Check. Ageing well. Check. Great body at 64. Check. Ugly retirement village get up. Check.
This takes the phrase 'statement piece' to a new dimension. It's making a statement alight, 'I'm a print that's going to visit you in your nightmares'. I can still see it when I close my eyes and I could think of nothing but tropical storms and zimmer frames all day. Oh how I wish I could un-see this coat.
Yes, the older you get, you need to bring a lot more stucture to your wardrobe but wearing a coat this stiff is not a good idea when you're well into your golden years. It's tempting fate if you ask me, and it's beyond fugly.
What I will say is the cobalt blue slim pants and fuchsia clutch are to die for. I just wish she had gone with a white or black fitted jacket.
I am blue in the face saying this. Just because it's Stella McCartney and you are famous, that's not a guarantee that you'll look good. I'll give Glenn points for trying to bring an interesting look to a day event, but this is the OSCARS luncheon. Get your classics and a fabulous shoe on for Christ's sake.
I'm throwing this one out to the floor: what celebrity could actually make this coat work?
