Jennifer Lawrence wears black tights with blue Alexander McQueen dress

I have yet to see any of  Jennifer Lawrence’s films. I keep reading that she’s super talented. Someone has recommended I watch Silver Linings Playbook. If it ever comes on Netflix or on any of the On Demand Premium channels that are included in my cable package I’ll definitely check out the film so I can see her in action.

I was just looking at a picture of Jennifer that seems to have been taken today. She was taking part in a photo call for her film American Hustle.

Jennifer wore a blue Alexander McQueen dress to the photo call. She wore the dress with black opaque stockings (black tights), and black pumps.

I’m not sure what I think of the outfit. The dress is okay by itself; but worn with black tights and black pumps I’m not sure if I would have recommended that if I was Jennifer’s stylist.

Jennifer’s outfit inspired me to do some research to see what the fashion rule books say about how to wear black tights and when to wear black tights. To be honest I didn’t really find anything interesting addressing either of these two questions; but I did end up on a google images page with plenty of examples of ladies wearing black tights or as I call them black opaque stockings and I have to say most of the ladies made good use of their black tights. The only pictures in which the outfits didn’t look particularly great were ones in which the ladies were similarly dressed to Jennifer in a boldly bright colored dressy style dress. So I’m inclined to think maybe black opaque stockings are not the best choice for a dress like the one Jennifer is wearing.

If I were styling Jennifer I would have recommended no stockings or if she insisted she had to wear stockings then something sheer and nude in color and maybe some more interesting shoes.

Here are some dresses that might have worked better with black tights and black pumps

I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so.
