Style on Trial: Parker Posey really likes the colour red – do you?

Parker Posey in a red dress with red tights and shoes

“Parker Posey” is such a fantastic name, isn’ it? Every  time we hear it, we think she should get a job as Superman’s sidekick or something, because she totally has the nane for it. And she kinda has the style for it, too, because as soon as we saw  this particular outfit, with its combination of red dress, red tights and red shoes, we thought it looked like some kind of superhero costume. Maybe that’s just us.

As you fashion-followers know, monoblocking has been touted as a “hot trend” this season, so it’s possible that Parker has just decided to take a leap aboard that particular bandwagon. Either that or she just REALLY wants to be labelled a “Scarlet woman”.

Anyway, what do you think? Has she pulled it off? Do you love the head-to-toe-red look? Or are you so distracted by the Vivienne Westwood toe shoes that you can’t see anything else?

    My eyes didn’t need a close up of those shoes! Why? Why would anyone wear them?

    OMG, I think I’m blind. Where is the eyeball bleach when I need it?

    If she were to hire me as her defense attorney for this crime, my theory would be that maybe she HAD to wear the shoes (perhaps for a dare?) and she thought monoblocking would distract people from the fact that she’s wearing hideous footwear?

    It almost worked too, at least on me, because of the aforementioned near-blindness from looking at her starting at the top and scrolling down, but even without the close-up, I did indeed notice the horrible shoes. IMO, they’re like the Lord Voldemort of footwear, except instead of not-being-named, they should be “the-shoes-which-shall-not-be-seen.”

    There’s definitely too much red. The dress would have looked okay on it’s own and the tights would have been really cute as a pop of color in a winter outfit. However, there is no saving those shoes! They are hideous and remind me of a high heeled version of the Vibram Five Fingers running shoes (http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/index.htm).

    I own the toe shoes! They are the only designer shoes I have, but I saw them on a fashion blog and loved them.

    Mine are black not red but I think they are so quirky and great. They’re very comfortable too

    I have no words to describe those shoes, but I’m going to say: Hideous.
