I know, I know. This kind of looks like your grandmother’s favorite bedsheet. Well, it does look like your grandmother’s favorite bedsheet (or at least my grandmother’s, lol) but…Lucy Liu in Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2013 at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards was one of my favorite looks of the night.
Yes, seriously. I like this. It’s difficult to make a statement on the red carpet without having to cross the line into absurd territory, and Lucy carefully treads those waters, and remains on the safe side of unique fashion.
Her strapless dress could’ve easily been just another ball gown, but the rose print and robin’s egg blue color set it apart from the fashion crowd in a pleasant way. I also love the how Lucy’s styled the look, choosing a simple over the shoulder braided hairstyle to balance the overwhelmingness of the dress.
