When we came across pictures of Jessica Brown Findlay at the ‘Winter’s Tale’ UK premiere, we thought, “what perfect timing for Valentine’s Day.” The film is about a love story between a burglar and an heiress, the event was romantically set up with a heart-shaped arc made of flowers, and Jessica Brown Findlay herself looked like a fairy-tale princess.
Jessica captured our hearts as she floated down the red carpet in a Christian Dior Fall 2012 couture strapless gown. The frock features a modern horizontal stripe pattern, but the tea-length cut and soft white-pink-and-blue feathers help keep its classic appeal. The actress’ tumbling brown waves, soft makeup, and diamond drop earrings looked even more romantic against the red-and-pink background. We were just about ready to fall in love with her look when we got a glimpse of her shoes.

Do you agree that her shoes’ blue toe caps are just so jarring? The color is just so solid and bright, contrary to how soft everything else is. The shoes’ silhouette is also sharp and angular, which really takes away from Jessica’s princessy look.
Do you like how Jessica Brown Findlay’s shoes contrast with her Dior dress, or do you think the two pieces simply clash? You know our stance; we much rather prefer the chic cutout dresses Allison Williams and Jennifer Lawrence wore with these same shoes.
