Red Carpet Re-Do: Amanda Seyfried's Over-Exposed Neckline

February 3, 2010 by Marisa Siegel

All too often celebs take what could have been a fabulous red carpet ensemble, and turn it into a fashion nightmare. With Red Carpet Re-Do, we take celeb style slip-ups and show you  how to make it work.  Amanda Seyfried showed up to the premiere of her movie Dear John in a deep V-neck dress that was ill-fitting and showed too much.  The song may go ‘how low can you go’, but in Amanda’s case she has gone too, too low.  Here’s how Amanda went wrong and how to save this party dress look  from making it onto the worst dressed lists again.

What She Did Wrong:

  • The deep V-neck on her dress nearly hits her belly button; not cute
  • The hem of her dress appears unfinished and wrinkled
  • Her accessories are mismatched: simple bangles with a jeweled clutch is a confusing mix of casual and black tie

What She Should Have Done:

  • An extremely low cut dress can come off as overly sexy; if you want to go super low, there should be detailing at the neckline to distract the eye away from your largely exposed cleavage.  Ruffles are a good way to look sexy, but not scandalous
  • Lose the bangles and go for textured hoop earrings
  • Trade in the stuffy box clutch for a more modern long strap metallic purse
  • Stick with silver platform heels to accentuate the length of your legs

Here’s how we would rock this look:

Amanda Upichard, ($194)

Chinese Laundry shoes ($69.95)

Kate Spade earrings ($73)

Tory Burch metallic cross-body bag, ($250)
