Runway To (Red) Carpet

I always pictured that billowing orange gown from Lanvin Spring 08 to be more editorial than red carpet and now am convinced! While I appreciate Padma Lakshmi's choice over the more straight and narrow gowns, this gown to me just didn't translate that well from the runway onto the red carpet!

What do you guys think?

Agree with you, doesn't look as special on the red carpet as it does on the runway.....

agree, looks kinda insipid and blah

Actually, I quite like it. PadmaL being skinny and tall can take almost anything.

I like her makeup

Padma looks like a theatre cutain wrapped itself around her. Not a good look at all. Her make up is flawless as always.

This outfit is editorial and needs a wind machine contanstly blowing at you to be even considered a garment for the human female form.

i kinda like it, only coz its different to the usual look on the red carpet. if i could suggest anything different it might be the color. keeping the occasion in mind i would not wish a richer color, rather a warmer one. plus, it would have complimented her bronzed look and nude makeup.

Actually I like it. Not a big Padma Lakshmi fan - she just seems to be another Heather Mills but better looking, but she does carry it well. Anyone with money can buy a birkin esp. when your beau is Ted Forstmann but this dress requires a little bit more sophistication - would have likes some color though.
