Honey Help Me! Vibrant Spring Hues

By  |  0 Comments

A lot of celebs are fortunate enough to have stylists that make sure they’re always well dressed. Unfortunately, celebs also have too many yes-men – people who are afraid to tell them they’re making a bad decision.

Between stylist and yes-men sometimes Hollywood’s finest step out in looks that stun us. Other times they step out in looks that just scream, “Honey, Help Me!”

Spring has sprung in NYC and that means stashing away our dark colors in favor of more vibrant hues. It’s tempting to pile on all your brights at once, but Jemima Kirke and Freida Pinto show us why it might be a better idea to  let one bright piece speak for the whole outfit.

You may not have had time to shop for a new spring/summer wardrobe but that doesn’t mean anything from past warm seasons will do. Jemima Kirke‘s dress looks like a 70’s inspired print on a 90’s dress and the cut is unflattering. The colors mix in a manner that looks dirty as opposed to “joyful” and the closed round toe pink pump not only clashes with the colors of the dress (yes, ALL of them) but is an awkward contrast to the spaghetti strap. If she insists on prints, the Girls star should have went with a more modern design and cut, and chose shoes that complement, not contradict.

Color on color can be fun and lively – who says every outfit needs to be neutralized in black? Actress Freida Pinto’s attempt at full-on brights includes a bright blue dress with a green and blue jacket that are too close in the same color family. Her white embellished clutch and tan shoes only add more insult to injury.  Freida should have kept the patterns or embellishments to one piece, preferably the clutch, and simplified the look with black shoes and jacket. Sometimes less really is more.
