Ginnifer Goodwin takes on the “curtain dress” challenge

Ginnifer Goodwin

Last week, Leighton Meester took on the style challenge presented by what we’ve come to think of as the “curtain dress” – i.e. it’s a normal dress from the knees up, but from the knees down? It’s pretty much a net curtain. Sometimes a particularly ugly one.

Judging by the comments on that post, Leighton’s brave attempt was not a success – or at least, not in the eyes of the the ladies and gentlemen of the Fashion Police Jury. The celebrities aren’t going to give up, though, Oh, hell to the no! They’ll continue to pit their fashion wits against the might of the curtain dress, and they’ll do it for as long as fashion designers deem the style to be, like, SO hot, dahlinks.

The latest celebrity to go head to head with The Dress is Ginnifer Goodwin, who wore this Chanel number to MOCA’s Annual Gala “The Artist’s Museum Happening”. Did she succeed where Leighton Meester failed? We think it’s a much better attempt, and we tend to find Ginnifer cute no matter what she does, but we’re letting you guys be the judge here, so give us your verdict in the comments box!

    She is so cute, I just want to tear this horrible lace curtain off and leave her in a simpe black mini-dress.

    Not pretty. Even if it was long under the lace, I wouldn’t like it because the bodice is ugly.

    It’s better than Leighton’s dress, but I still don’t like it.

    I don’t think much of this dress. I really dislike the lace part up top (and on the bottom) She’s got such a gorgeous body too, and I think the dress is rather shapeless.

    If she had simply cut off the bottom lace-curtain part and maybe made the top inset of lace straight across, this would have looked nice. But oh well. :-/

    Hmmm! It is Ugly indeed. If she used to be beautiful, I don’t see it here at all cos it seems the uglyness of the dress has washed over her.
