I don't like it at all. I don't think the black/white is flattering to her skin tone.

The shoes are horrible, IMO.

I really like it.

I had a dress like that when I was around 4 or 5, I recall.

I wish she was carrying a brighter or more interesting clutch, and her lipstick could be a tad brighter, but I think she looks great.

I personally wouldn't like any of it on me, beside the shoes. I don't care for black and white, I don't like the purse, I don't really like the shape or length of the dress.
But since I'm rating the look on her, I'll give it a 7. I think it looks really cute on her!
With a nice jewel tone purse, a red lip, and less drab hair, I would probably go up to 9.

Totally agree with all of this. 7 for now 9 with changes.

I dunno, I give it a 6. I think the dress (and the hideous shoes) look cute on her. Looks a bit hipster-esque, like a Zooey Deschanel type of look, especially with the flamingo clutch.

Because it's Alexa Chung and she annoys me. And I don't like anything she wears

7/8. I have no idea who she is!

I like it overall. Her hair is suffering from a case of drab, and the dress shape needs some tailoring to be more flattering even if a skimming rather than fitted shape. I would have picked a different purse, but like the bright color to add something to the look touch of it.

Without the shoes: 5

The ensemble is not hideous; I just don't care for it.

Nooooooooo..to put Zooey Deschanel and Alexa Chung in the same vicinity is a high crime! Zooey Deschanel's mode of dress is whimsical, flattering, chic. Alexa Chung's mode of dress usually looks like she didn't have any luck at the Salvation Army reject bin.

1 or 2

I don't like Alexa Chung's style, no matter what anyone says.

I didn't know who this lady is so I looked her up. The dress she's wearing in that pic is not her normal style. She's definitely a hipster. Maybe she was being ironic with that dress?

Anyway, she dresses like one of my co-workers, who I think is super cute most of the time.

Ha I just got the musical pun.

I give her a 5/6. I hate the clutch but the rest is okay. A vibrant bag would make her outfit pop a little more. I don't dig on her style but see why others do.

Well, I'm finally disagreeing with Claudine19 (whose every other post says exactly what I'm thinking!). I give it a 1 for the shoes. Otherwise, horrible. No shape, stupid design, bag has no connection to the rest of the outfit, crossed legs looks like she needs to pee but can't get to a restroom.

So I agree with Marah.

Don't know who the woman is or how old she is, but unless she is 6 or 7 years old, she is too old for that dress. I had a dress very similar in coloration and style when I was about 7. I also paired it with black patent-leather mary jane shoes. lol

She doesn't look totally hideous, but I don't like anything about it. Score: 1

And curlypearl is right: She needs to pee. Someone escort her to the little girl's room, STAT!
