    I agree with everything Erin said, but I like the bag. It just doesn’t go with this outfit AT ALL. THe funny part is that Daily Mail compared her to Paris Hilton when she wore this. Um… not so much.

  2. AJ says:

    I don't have a prob with the dress, although it is hugging her mid-section and revealing more than I want to see. She will always get points from me for bouffant free hair. The accessories, bag and shoes are a mess.

    LoveLamps, I'm 5'4" and I agree with you that I would never go near this dress but I like the dress and the color just not the ruffles. I don't understand Alex's need to wear the same pair of shoes until they're good and worn out. She definitely shouldn't have paired that bag with that outfit. Oh Alex when will you learn?!

    Where to begin??? Here – Alex call Vicks and she will give you the number to Marc Jacobs… he can help (I HOPE)

    At the risk of being shot down for having no taste I have to say I actually like everything about this look except the shoes!!!

  8. HoneyBee says:

    Hate the shoes-and she doesn't look color coordinated. When she's going out during night she wears too short dresses and when she's going out during day she's wearing too long dresses.Needs a balance.But at least she doesn't look like a hooker.

  9. c9 says:

    She's wearing those God awful snake skin shoes again. I think those are the same heels that she sported with the silver metallic looking bag last week! UUuuggghhhh!!!

  10. mymy33 says:

    WTF? The individual parts are okay (except the shoes, and that obnoxious ruffle, but together? Maybe she let her daughters pick her outfit……

  11. Erin says:

    Oh, Alex. When will you learn? The ruffle, the heels, the bag. I happen to love the maxi dress and we tall girls can pull it off. But the key is to keep it casual. It needs to be ruffle-free. It needs flat sandals. It needs a smaller, less gaudy bag. I give you a thumbs up for the casual ponytail, as we have discussed before. But you, my dear friend, need a stylist. Pretty girl…full of fashion don'ts.

  12. FootballerChick43 - says:

    I like the purple, but.. I'm not a big fan of ruffles or maxi dresses. Especially those with heels. The proportions of it tend to make you look shorter and stubbier. She should have gone with flats. Or gotten someone to chop the dress a bit.

  13. Aoife says:

    Erin, *applauds*… you’ve just given yourself the job of stylist to Alex Gerrard. Great tips! =)

  14. xmo says:

    Different bag & shoes and she would’ve looked great.

    Wierd, after all that hard typing, Ive found the missing comments thingy….. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/embarrassed.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="red face" style="border:0;" />

  16. sarabee says:

    Bah! Where have all the comments posted with the new comment thingy gone? I saw them here yesterday when I took a sneaky peek whilst pretending to work hard….

    Its only his thread that its happened to, have I missed something interesting???

    Anyway, hell must have frozen over cos I think she looks great here! Would have been better with flats, but love the bag, accessories, the fresh face (im assuming under the sunnies) and the simple hair.

    Shes loving her colours recently, which is fun.

  17. Mo says:

    she looks fantastic..colour really suits her..

    The bag and shoes could have been a better match to the dress, but it doesnt make this outfit look bad!

  18. DiorHeels says:

    what the ffffff is with her and those hideous long beach pregnancy dresses?! it's too close to her on her pelvis, i don't want to see that!

  19. Meriam says:

    I love the hair, sunglasses and the colour of the dress, but everything else makes me want to slap her with that bag she's carrying

  20. Brandy says:

    Like the dress, the color, the hair, glasses… Still don't get the shoes. Isn't it a fashion rule to wear stylish flat sandals with a long flowing beach dress like this? I don't think I need to say anything about hte size of the bag…

  21. Betsy says:

    I enjoy the outfit from the neck up. That is about it. Her hair and glasses are nice but the rest is a big yuck!

  22. lose that girl says:

    I like the colour. The rest…not so much! lose that girl blog

  23. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    You can see how fantastic her figure is through the dress, why does she feel the need to make herself look so bad?

  24. The Fourth Official says:

    Here we see a hybrid of the dreaded ruffle phenom and the equally dreaded muumuu. And purple. Oh dear. But her body does look in great shape under it all, so why not show it off with a cute short summer sundress? And the bag!!?? If ever an outfit called for a summery straw purse of modest proportions, it’s this one. Will we ever understand the enigma that is Alex? Do we want to???

    Hmmm.. how many of these dresses/sheets does she have? Me thinks she’s trying to get into the new summer trend to write about in her “column”… silly woman! Did she not learn anything from the SATC movie? She did attend the premiere! She should have been taking notes during the movie too!!

  28. LoveLamps says:

    Yeah these dresses are everywhere right now. As I’m 5’3″, I do not see myself going anywhere near one for quite some time. Alex continues her insanity. Why not wear the stripper shoes with this Alex? You are getting more like Elen Rives every day sister, and that is NOT a good thing.
