Hilary Swank Cropped Fashion Disaster For Homesman

  • Pin it

How would you dress for a special comeback in the spotlight after a long absence? With your finest, wouldn’t you? Someone page Hilary Swank and tell her to ditch her stylist! She walked the Red Carpet after nearly 3 years of notable absence proudly wearing a complete fashion disaster!

Attending the premiere of her latest movie ‘The Homesman’ (written and directed by the grand Tommy Lee Jones), Hilary Swank felt a trendy/hipster urge and chose a Delpozo creation from the Spring Summer 2015 collection. Lovely colors, artistic (inspired by Josef Albers’ art), more-than-decent length but a mess overall!

Surprisingly, though, Delpozo’s creative Josep Font, presented the dress in a different combination which actually made sense – the crisp white brought was a nice, schoolgirl-like allure to the ensemble. Hilary, however, opted it out, perhaps in an effort to brag about her perfect abs.

Something about the cropped tops is so very off-putting for most cases. More risqué than a pair of skinny, the cropped top is unforgiving, showing any imperfection, revealing the muffin top in all its splendor. Or, where you’ve got a flawless silhouette like Hilary’s, the Million Dollar Baby, you can still go wrong in the visual ensemble.

This particular strapless cutout dress is unnecessarily accentuating the lengthy cleavage and the weird bra line. A belt would’ve been just fine to define Hilary’s waist, or, to keep it all hipstery and artsy cool, a knotted button down black shirt. And the white pumps? So wrong! Seeing that the skirt is so long, a pair of strappy sandals, on the silver or patent black side would’ve been so much better!

Ladies, regardless of what Carine Roitfeld sais, white pumps are a no-go! Unless you want to stick out like a sore thumb in any gathering!

What do we learn from here? That styling a look beyond the catwalk can really alter it beyond salvation and that regardless of how perfectly fit and shaped you are, your clothes can still bring you down (fashion-wise). What’s left to do? Smile, like Hilary does, and look like you mean it!

I like the dress the way that the runway model is wearing it. and to be a tad different I would have worn green shoes or booties with it to give it a bit of a different edge and a green or black blouse underneath. I have to say that in all honesty I did not realize that Hilary Swank was away from the spotlight.

YAY!! Spanish designer !!
One of the looks I didnt like in the collection….
The proportions were lost in Hillary outing. Too much fabric waist down and very little waist up. It is like she wrapped herself in a flag at her way out of the beach ( the top,, no words, really)
The white monstrosities at her feet ? (In Germany only ho*kies wear those)
The hair style ?
Oh girl , change the stylist.
Kpriss, I missed a word on Mr Oscar de la Renta. It is your blog and you post what you want, i know, but still….
