Style Trial | Eva Green’s Elie Saab black and white mesh jumpsuit

Actress Eva Green wore this unusual black and white jumpsuit to the world premiere of Penny Dreadful in New York last night: we want to know what you think of it?

This is from the Elie Saab Resort 2014 collection, and features a black mesh top, attached to a white jumpsuit with wide sleeves. The trousers, meanwhile, are equally wide, and it would appear poor Eva was the unfortunate victim of that dastardly fashion criminal, The Foot Snatcher, because we can’t see her feet at all. Now we know why the Elie Saab presentation showed this collection in motion: an outfit like this is designed to flow, and we’re guessing it would probably look better with a bit of movement to it, than it does standing still on the red carpet.

Eva kept the rest of her look simple with this, going for a classic smoky eye and slicked-back hair. What do you think of the look, though? Does it get your seal of approval, or would you consider it a crime of fashion?

    I think it is funny that in the top picture she is surrounded by the word “dreadful”–indeed!

      Very Veronique

      Ohh didn’t even notice that! Totally agree, don’t think I’ve ever seen her in anything less flattering, it really is dreadful.

    Oh dear. Her hair and makeup are not right for those clothes at all. I usually love Elie Saab, but this thing is a no-hitter.

    I like the top, but the trousers are terribly unflattering on the hips and bidimensional… and the hairstyle is looks errible with her long face and hooded eyes…
    I don’t think the dress itself is dreadful, is the whole…

    Gosh – she has such a lovely figure why would she want to cover it up in all that material! I’m not saying she should have everything on show, far from it, but this really doesn’t flatter her. I’d much rather see her in a less severe look.

    Eva is a beautiful woman with a good figure. Yet she always seems to look pissed off when photographed. Perhaps an outfit which compliments her look would make her smile. Ok its not dreadful, but its really not good either.
