Celebrity Style on Trial: Michelle Williams in a demi-“shress”

Michelle Williams Shutter Island premiere

We see what happened here: Michelle Williams knew The Fashion Police would be out and about at the Shutter Island premiere this week, BUT she still wanted to wear a shress (Motive: unknown), so she thought she’d manage to sneak this one in under our radar by taking half-measures, i.e. a HALF SHRESS. In other words, only half of the skirt is sheer. Hmm, now we think of it, we’re not sure if this is yet another example of the dreaded “leg window” in that case?

Whtever you want to call it, what we want to know is what you think of it? Does the fact that this dress is sheer on one side only make it a lesser crime than that its fully-sheer sisters? Or does the undecided nature of it make you wish it would just make its mind up whether it wants to be a long skirt or a short one, and then stick to it? Tell us!

    Obviously she wanted to wear a longer gown but her knees wouldn’t be able to see out so this is what resulted. Bring it in on Leg window charges.

    The real culprit is the disproportionate, ugly bodice.

    The whole thing should be scrapped.

    This dress would be tacky either way. The sheer part looks like she’s trying to draw attention to herself for a second look but the one shoulder thing makes her shoulders look rounder and like she’s hunched up and hiding.

    After the (leggings=trousers) + (tights=leggings) => (tights=trousers) crime I was unlucky enough to see earlier today, this dress seems quite modest.
    Not sure why she’s wearing a seat-belt though.

    The half-shress is like shoplifting instead of armed robbery. If you are going to commit a crime, it might as well be a felony. Misdemeanors are for wussies.
