Love It or Hate It? Jaime King’s Green, Asymmetrical Jason Wu Creation
Actress and former model Jaime King Jaime King wore a slightly wacky-look, asymmetrical Jason Wu frock to a recent Hollywood event. Love it or hate it?
Jaime King is gorgeous, right? We can all agree on that? Good. With that settled, can we come to some kind of consensus about what she wore to a private Hollywood event on Monday? Because the more I look it, the more confused I get. What do you think, Bettys?
Here, the actress and former model is sporting a green, asymmetrical, printed dress by Jason Wu. She left her hair loose and flowing and her makeup simple, and she finished off the look with some gold platform sneakers from Chanel, a gold cuff, and a bright orange clutch.
Although the dress drapes nicely, mostly it just looks like someone grabbed her at her left shoulder and yanked, taking half the dress with it and leaving only the liner (yes, I know that what looks like naked dress liner here is actually a sleeveless blouse from Jason’s 2013 resort collection, but I mean, seriously. Dress liner!).
That said, though, I love the color combination—not everyone can pull of yellow-y greens, but it suits Jaime well, and her gold sneakers and orange clutch add an unexpected and refreshing pop to the ensemble. Some might call the sneakers-and-dress combination a fashion faux pas, but I actually kind of dig it—they sneaker are on the funkier side of things, but they’re also lux enough for them to work with the whole look (the fact that they’re Chanel probably has something to do with this).
Jason, by the way, unveiled his new, slightly more affordable Miss Wu line at Nordstrom on Monday. I say “slightly more affordable” because comparatively speaking, the line is more wallet-friendly than Jason’s regular line; most of the Miss Wu items are under $500 a pop, while a more typical Jason Wu item might set you back several thousand dollars. Still, the line is super pretty, so even if we can’t spring for anything ourselves, at least we can drool over them!
Anyway, that’s my two cents. What’s yours? Tell us what you think about Jaime’s look in the comments!
