More precisely, she put on the Rodriguez: specifically, Narciso Rodriguez, from whose fall ’08 collection this natty little number is taken. (Picture swiped from USA Today.)
I’m not quite sure this was the ideal dress for her. I love the colors, and the length is just about perfect for her, but while the black crossover whittles her waist nicely, the red zone beneath makes her look a bit on the chunky side, which she isn’t. I suspect that this looked better on a rack, assuming it actually spent any time on a rack.
And maybe I’m reading too much into this photo here, but combine her stance and her facial expression, and to me it can mean only one thing: “These [expletive deleted] shoes are killing me.”
Addendum: Virginia Postrel also questions the shoes “or at least the way she stands in them.”
