Celebrity Style on Trial: Ginnifer Goodwin in Roksanda Ilincic at Comic Con

Quite a few celebrity outfits have jumped up and slapped us square in the face this week, but none so much as this  Roksanda Ilincic dress, worn by Ginnifer Goodwin to Comic Con.

Now, the colour of this is what the fashion press would probably describe as “brave”. “Oh, she’s so brave!” they will coo. Or “She really knows how to take risks!” Those statements always make us smile, because, honestly, it’s a dress we’re talking about: she’s wearing clothes, not scaling Mount Everest. Still, we will concede that it takes a certain amount of guts to wear a colour as bright as this one – it’s a shade more commonly seen on construction workers than on the red carpet, but we actually think Ginnifer pulls it off here.

About that black patch in the middle of her stomach, though.. What IS that?

Is it like a bum bag/fanny pack? Does she have her cellphone and lipstick in there? We have no idea. We do love her hair, though.

What do you say? Is this dress Innocent or Guilty of committing crimes of fashion?

    Black fuzzy crotch on a neon dress? No.

      Indeed, why would anyone want to wear an unkempt feather bush in the middle of the stomach?? Oh, yeah, almost forgot, it’s brave!

    Um, aside from the colour, the dress looks like a curtain some one basted at the top, (not real sewing, just stitched up temporarily) to create the pleats. And having bought one to go with the husband’s kilt, a leather bag worn on a chain at the waist (fur or fringe optional) is a sporran. Which has no place on a bright yellow dress!

    Runway fashion has given so much to science fiction costuming, it is really a shame that actresses don’t take advantage of Comic Con as a chance to wear something really wild and make everyone wonder what character they are dressed as. 🙂

    Being a birder, I initially thought she was wearing binoculars. Her shower curtain of a dress could certainly hide a binocular strap …

    Love the color, but WTF is that dress? It looks like she just pinned a curtain around her and called it a day.

    It looks like she’s wearing a belted poncho, honestly. And I don’t think it’s raining in San Diego this week. Very strange.

    Yup.
    It’s not the color that’s the problem here.
    It’s the tailoring — or rather, the lack thereof.
    GUILTY.

    She looks great and suits the bright colour but that dress is guilty as charged. It looks really poorly put together – almost like it’s a practice run and then they ran out of time to make the real dress. I don’t think the ‘lady sporran’ is going to take off either!

    Borderline, she only just gets away with it because she is a little pixie.

    Guilty. There’s a vagina on her dress.

    There is absolutely nothing I like about this. The dress is ugly and poorly constructed, the color is horrendous, that black patch…no, and hair that short never looks good on anybody. She’s cute, though.
