Love It or Hate It? Dania Ramirez’s Leather Dress at the ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Premiere
Dania Ramirez piled trend after trend on her leather dress at the ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ premiere. What do you think, Bettys? Love it or hate it?
Have you heard of Wreck-It Ralph, Bettys? It hits cinemas today, and we here at BettyConfidential are RIDICULOUSLY excited for it. Here’s the schtick: A video game villain (the titular Ralph, looking something like a human version of Donkey Kong) decides that he’s sick of being a villain. Not only that, but he wants to be something new: A hero. Unfortunately, his quest to fulfill his dream ends up wreaking havoc on the whole arcade where he lives. With nods to loads of classic arcade games (Pac-Man! Sonic the Hedgehog! Street Fighter!) and a voice cast to die for (John C. Reilly! Jane Lynch! Jack McBrayer!) we’re pretty much POSITIVE we’re going to love it.
But you know what I’m unfortunately NOT loving? The leather dress that Sopranos alum Dania Ramirez wore to the animated flick’s premiere on Monday. That’s it up there at the top. She accessorized the zippered, belted dress with fuchsia booties, turquoise jewelry, and a fishtail braid, and, well… it kind of leaves me cold. What do you think, Bettys? Love it or hate it?
Leather EVERYTHING is super hot right now, especially in the world of celeb style. Rich, buttery leather dresses, pants, skirts, and blazers have been spotted on everyone from Diane Kruger to Eva Longoria. But though I do love me a good leather jacket, somehow a just can’t get behind all of the other items that have been getting leather makeovers lately
(especially pants. Why would you want to put on something so unnecessarily difficult to wear?)—and that includes dresses. Maybe I just dislike Dania’s look because I’m biased towards leather dresses in general.
That said, though I also can’t help but think that she’s rocking just a few too many trends all in one package here. The fishtail braid has been having its moment in the sun lately, as have booties and turquoise; but all of them put together with the main attraction—that is, the dress—makes it look a little like she’s got everything but the proverbial kitchen sink hanging off of her person. Not a fan. But hey, maybe that’s just me. For the curious, here’s a closer look at those show-stopping shoes:
Tell us: What do you think? Do you love Dania’s super on-trend look or do you hate it?
