WEARING: Catherine Maladrino dress, Jimmy Choo shoes
MY VERDICT: I really love the sunset orange shade of Julie’s waterfall long dress by Catherine Malandrino. A very similar design was featured in the Pre-Fall 2013 collection in a forest green with wider straps. While part of me would like to see her in that dark leaf hue, I think the thinner strap works best on Julie’s lithe frame, and the crossover bodice with gathering at the waist enhances a little bit of a curve. To compliment the shimmering effect of the satin lining at the cascading front ruffle, Julie accessorized with gold jewelry and a matching pair of strappy sandals. She went light on her makeup, which was nice—I just wish more had been done with her hair. I’m sure she was going for an ‘undone’ pony, but this was a step too far.
