We’ve been digging Nikki Reed‘s wardrobe so much recently. Her stylist — Jessica Paster — gets it right almost every time. Off the top of our heads, in the recent past, we’ve seen Nikki shake things up at events like the Teen Vogue party (in a natty pantsuit) and at Vogue‘s Fashion Night out where she slayed it in a molten Michael Kors gold sheath. Gold really is her color because she looked beautiful in the same metallic shade at the MTV Movie Awards as well. So, where’s Nikki, consider our sartorial senses piqued. Which is why her run at various The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 events in the U.K. over the last two days have been such a disappointment. We expected something offbeat, yet totally on point from her and what we got was … beige. A whole lot of beige. Three looks in three different cities, and they were all massively underwhelming, except for her shoes, which, thankfully, are always on the awesome side of the fence.
We’ll start with the photo on the left, which was her first promotional stop in Dublin, Ireland on Friday. It’s actually our favorite from the triad of ensembles, even though it’s super casual. She wore a nude tee-shirt by A.L.C paired with J Brand leather leggings and fabulous cut-out booties by Camilla Skovgaard. What pulls this look together is the jewelry which had some pieces by Mattlin Era. Top marks for the tumbling ombre tresses and the fresh makeup. And that’s when it went downhill. We just can’t get on board with the outfit in the middle (barring the shoes again), worn at the Glasgow photo call. It’s a frumpy Dolce & Gabbana drop-waist dress and we don’t like the fit on her, or that tweet bow at the neckline. Even Kellan Lutz‘s presence hasn’t distracted us, so we know we really don’t dig it. But we do love those Rupert Sanderson ‘Flamente’ sandals. Lastly, the picture on the right is at the London event and she looks like she has a black nightshirt on. But, we’d go to despicable lenghts to own those heels. We’re hoping this is just a slow start and Nikki will bring it at the rest of the Breaking Dawn do’s.
