Hilary Swank in Ferragamo [Hot or Hot Mess]

Hilary Swank (now there’s someone I haven’t thought about for a while) stepped out in Paris in this purple Ferragamo frock.  The outfit may or may not have caused a mini-battle among my friends. Some of my girls were digging it—but I can’t say I’m into the ensemble. For me, the fishnets aren’t really working. But again, my friends were arguing they were subtle and fun.

On that note, I might not even be sold on the dress as a whole. The top and belt have me downright giddy (LOVE) but I’m not so sure how I feel about all of the draping and tiers. Though pretty much any Italian designer has me reminiscing about my semester abroad in Italy last year, so I don’t even know if I can trust my own judgment. You say Ferragamo, I’m thinking delicious food, 1 euro bottles of wine and sexy Italian men. Hard to stay focused.

I’ll let you decide while we get back to the bickering—does she look hot, or like a hot mess?



  1. Jacquelin says:

    Don't like the fishnets, but I think if she wore her hair up in some kind of wispy, voluminous bun it would have lightened and softened the look. The dress is dark and "heavy" so her sloppy, all-down hair makes the whole ensemble look weightier

  2. Katie says:

    I really dig it for some reason.

  3. 5 on demand says:

    I like the colour of the dress, but it doesn't suit her.

  4. Garnet – Columbia University says:

    Eh. I don't hate it, but it doesn't do much for me. Love the color though.

  5. Mel says:

    Hate it on her, but I'm sure someone else could rock it. :x
