Oh I am highly upset about the Amber Riley look for the SAG awards. First let me explain my attachment. I love Amber Riley, I feel she one of the very few plus size entertainers that the fashion world takes seriously. She's young, fresh, and a vibrant girl who is definitely trying to come into her own with her personal style, but I think she was set up. I frequently check out Badgley Mischka and never have I seen them make a dress so terrible. First, I will say what I liked. The dress had a nice silhouette. I actually liked her hair short, it was a nice change from the long hair that she wears. Her face and body looked so cute. But everything else was wretched, wretched, WRETCHED! (I maybe a little angry). The fabric looked cheap and that bow was horrendous and on top of everything else they just slapped a peplum on the dress. I would probably use this dress to scrub my floors with. Did Badgley Mischka give her some B.S. dress because she wasn't a size 0? I'm looking though the collections and I am not seeing it anywhere, like did they sew it yesterday. Amber you were set up!!!
I would definitely not be surprised if they go in on her on E! Fashion Police. Sound off on this dress and let me know if I am not seeing something that everyone else is seeing.
***Blog Update: I just finished watching Fashion Police and 3 out 4 of the panelists loved Amber's look, so I guess the yays have it. I hate this dress, but I felt like the Fashion Police was going to be the tie breaker in the comments, which were about 50/50. So ladies enjoy your victory and you can't say I'm not a good sport. Good convo!
