As mentioned in an earlier post (click here), Robin Roberts from ABC's Good Morning America is asking viewers to help her select one (of three) dresses to wear to the Academy Awards. "Thanks!" to FabulousFloridaMommy (in this post) who shared with us an article (click here) about Robin Roberts & her dress options for the big event. In particular, we learn more about the "Glowing Warmth in J.Crew's Coral Halter Gown of Silk Tricotine".
J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons is a fan of unexpected color combinations that offer designer style and design at friendly price points.
If Robin chooses the J.Crew gown, she will be the first to wear J.Crew on the red carpet, even though the company has a huge following, especially with first lady Michelle Obama, who wears the brand frequently.
Jenna's advice to Robin as she prepares for the red carpet: "People try to do everything -- the big hair, the big jewelry, the big necklace -- there's so much, and I feel like, to me, what always looks more beautiful is picking one -- so, pick a really vibrant color and let everything else be really simple. Or a big statement necklace and a simple dress. When people try to do everything, they wind up not looking as elegant."
I loved the dress in the sketches (click here). However, now that I see the dress on Robin Roberts, I am not so sure. Robin definitely rocks J.Crew's Coral Halter Gown Dress. But I like "Reem Acra's Cobalt Blue Goddess Dress" more on Robin. I think that the Goddess Dress is more flattering to her figure. :)
I also agree with Jenna Lyons' advice when it comes to choosing (1) simple accessories to go with a vibrant color dress or (2) a simple dress with a statement accessory. This way the overall outfit doesn't appear to be "too overwhelming".
Now that you have seen all three dresses, which one do you prefer on Robin Roberts? What were some of the reasons behind your selection? What are your thoughts on Jenna Lyons' advice (agree or disagree)?
