Michelle Trachtenberg at 2010 NBC Universal's Press Tour Cocktail Party

Another black and blue pairing, this time from Michelle Trachtenberg. As we’ve said before, we’re not opposed to this look in principle, but we reckon everything about this is just too dull and matronly for someone as young and lovely as Michelle, from the cut of the dress to the boring black pumps (mid-height heels are great, but they make this dress look even frumpier than it did already). If she’d ditched the black tights and tried to accessorize the dress a bit, this could just have worked, but we’re not loving it as it is. What about you?

    I think she’s keeping the look simple because of the necklace, which from here looks gorgeous! I agree that she could have more interesting footwear though.

    Michelle is wayy to young to be playing this safe! Wish her stylist would get a little more creative and put her on the style map!

    I’m sorry, I can’t pay attention to this dress, I’m too busy staring at MT. UNF, she is so pretty.

    if she ditched the tights and plain shoes and went bare legs and strappy sandals i think she’d have nailed it

    I think it’s wonderful just how it is. It draws all the attention up to her face and that gorgeous necklace.
