My grandmother is rolling in her grave.
Jennifer Lopez looked wildly out of place on the blue carpet at NBC’s upfront event, wearing a thigh-splitting, off-the-shoulder gown by Elie Saab Haute Couture, a pair of Christian Louboutin platform sandals, and a giant diamond cocktail ring from Narcisa Pheres.
Did I mention: It was 9AM.
No, no, no, no, no.
That is NOT how we do things, Jennifer. No couture ballgowns in the morning, unless your stumbling home from an all-nighter. No cocktail jewels before cocktail hour (“No sparkle before sundown” is the rule, I believe). Keep the hair simple, the thigh-exposing skirts to a minimum, and the sky-high heels in the closet till nighttime.
There is a reason why it’s called evening wear. You wear it IN THE EVENING.
Surely after being a fashion icon for 20 years now, these things MUST have soaked in.
I mean REALLY.
And don’t give me that “But there ARE no rules in fashion anymore” nonsense. Some rules can be broken. Some rules can be relaxed. But other rules are there to keep you from looking like a madwoman, and this is one of them.
And just so we’re clear: You look like a madwoman.
