Hot! or Hmm...: Rachel Roy at Tribeca Grand

Sophisticated designer Rachel Roy popped in to the Cinema Society and Entertainment Weekly screening of "The Wrestler" last night at the Tribeca Grand Screening Room:
I'm a sucker for shoe boots and I want to applaud her creativity in refashioning an oversized jacket into a dress. Edginess is always hot, but this look makes me go hmm...
What do you think?

Oh Rachel, you are so much better than this! The 'dress' looks like just like what it is: an over-sized jacket.

maybe if it was smaller in the waist.

I love R.R. and she can do no wrong in my book. As stunning as she is, she can pull off any look no matter how questionable it may be.

great she tried it. I would never ever ever ever ever wear it.

honestly don't think it looks that bad

I think the concept was great...just poor execution! The boots are nice and if the jacket/dress was a little more tailored (maybe belted) I think she may have been able to pull it off.

Is she pregnant? If so, then I will give her a pass, if not, pull over and accept your tickets from the fashion police!

I usually love Rachel's style, but this ummmm, I guess it's a bad day.

I think this was poor execution as DeeDee said..She could have done a belt to define her waist a couple of brooches something to juice it a little.I get the simple look but its a little too blank

She's a risk taker. I love this outfit. Mixing high end with low end(Alicie + Olivia Booties for Payless)! She's BFF with Andre Leon Talley...She has to be different, fashionably.

she should have thrown on a waist defining belt, otherwise it just looks like a sack.
