Ginnifer Goodwin in Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2012: Well, if the 2011 People's Choice Awards red carpet is any indication, I may believe the upcoming 2012 Awards Season Red Carpet, might be an "all over the place" free-for-all. As you've seen in my previous mini-postings--we had Vanessa Hudgens in a full-on sequined gown from Jenny Pachkam, Jennifer Lawrence in a royal blue/violet swirly applique-and-mesh Viktor & Rolf cocktail dress and now, it's Ginnifer Goodwin in a bubblegum gum pink below-the-knee length dress. The dress is by Roksanda Ilincic, the London-based designer made famous by Kate the Duchess of Cambridge. Ilincic must have gotten a very nice pr agency here in LA, because her dresses have been making the red carpet rounds more and more in the last few months and recently Rooney Mara also wore on of her designs. This dress on Ginnifer is very Ladies Who Lunch...but with a "Twist". A very Retro Bell-Sleeved Twist! It's "Mad Men" meets "Pan Am" meets some crown princess from (name any European country). I could TOTALLY see someone like Barbara Walters in this, but Ginnifer? Not so sure. I LOVE the color and give her (and her stylist) points for going in a different direction. What do you guys think?
