What She Should Have Worn: Olga Kurylenko


Olga Kurylenko has become something of a fashion darling over the last few years, people can’t wait to see what she’s going to wear next and some of the biggest names in fashion are vying to dress her. But that’s naturally what happens when someone has great style, and Olga is no exception, this French beauty has been seen in everything from a yellow gown covered in flower petals to a Valentino confection made of black leather and lace. But like all those who like to take style chances, sometimes they get it wrong. During Paris Fashion Week, Olga attended the Jean-Paul Gaultier show in a navy blue tulle skirt, black jacket, and black pumps. While the dark colors were beautiful against Olga’s dark hair and porcelain skin, there was just too much going on, and Olga seemed to get lost in the outfit. The skirt was a little too long, and the jacket looked like it may have been a size or two too big, completely overwhelming her gorgeous figure. Olga would have been better off choosing a shorter hem that would have shown off her amazing legs, and a cropped jacket with shorter sleeves that would have elongated her, making her appear taller. The part that Olga did get right were her black pumps and blue pendant necklace, they complete the look without making it look overdone.
