Yea, Nay, or Eh: Lace Belle

-------

For evening, or really for any time of the day, white lace is a gamble. All those Madonna circa Like a Virgin and, worse yet, schlocky bridal connotations are tough to shake. But Camilla Belle made nice work of it last night in Beverly Hills at the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style, which honored another elegant beauty, Princess Grace. Strictly speaking, it wasn’t lace proper but rather white tulle with a lace-patterned embroidery, judiciously trimmed with feathers on the sleeves and hem, from Marchesa that Belle wore. The actress offset any potential frou with minimal makeup and simple accessories—black strappy sandals and ivory teardrop earrings. We say Belle: 1; White Lace: 0. What do you think of Belle’s lacy look?

    The combination of the froufy sleeves and skirt is too much! Just one exaggerated feature, either the shoulders or the skirt would have made this look 100 times more chic!

    the sleeves are a little much, but the rest is cute!

    It would not have reminded me of the white lace stereotype at all, if it wasn’t for the write-up. More bird then bride, in the best sense of the word…

    it would look too much on someone less divine than camilla but she carries it off perfectly although a lower neckline would showcase her neck and face even better =]
