Celebrity Style on Trial: Ginnifer Goodwin at Saks cocktail reception

Ginnifer Goodwin Fashion Police

Huh.

Now, we’ve always had a lot of time for Ginnifer Goodwin, mostly because she’s just so cute she generally manages to look adorable in whatever she wears. And because we want to pet her hair and pinch her little cheeks.

Maybe Ginnifer doesn’t want to be the “cute” girl any more, though. Or the “adorable” one. Maybe Ginnifer secretly wants to be the sexy girl. The tough girl. The girl who wears a slashed black mini dress and thigh-high boots to a cocktail reception at Saks because she is just that tough.

Hmmm. We’re not sure we like where this is going. We’d hate the bodice of this dress under any circumstances, of course, but we do have a bit of a weakness for thigh high boots, and it’s always refreshing to see someone decide to dress a little bit out of character, so we’re going to turn this one over to your, Fashion Police jurors.

What do you think of Ginnifer Goodwin’s new, sexy-girl look? A change for the better, or a change liable to get her thrown into Fashion Police jail?

    In all but the last picture she looks like an inappropriately dressed child, possibly because the bodice would make almost anyone look flat chested. And the skirt of the dress is horrible too, with those side slits and dodgy curved hem -eurgh!

    I love the bodice (I have a weak spot for velvet…), but the skirt should be tighter to look truly sexy. (and maybe be made of some non-shimmery material)
    And she could wear a more dramatic make-up with it, but that’s okay.
    Generally it suits her.

    By the way: Couldn’t the man beside her have worn a tie for an official event?

    This would have looked better if she had followed through on the theme. The hair and makeup are too subdued. It looks like she photoshopped her head onto a dominatrix body. Now, a little glaze and some spikes in the hair, and some heavy eyeliner would have made it a complete look.

    the dress would have been better if the cut out had been on the back instead of on the front of the dress

    I think she looks amazing! I love this!
    Too me it doesn’t look too out of character either, I think the velvet adds vintage cutesey-ness.

    I feel as though she is wearing the dress backwards and that if you spin her around you will find a V- neckline or some other tell-tale sign of her putting it on wrong. I love the boots though.

    I applaud her for being adventurous, but I can’t say I’m a fan of this look.

    Going to fashion police jail.

    I really don’t like this.
