The Color

This muted color combination stands out exceptionally well on stage, especially against the dark backdrop. The white and nude color palette is enhanced by various fabrics and details that create a dimensional look.

However, I don’t feel that this is the right color combination for Floor. Due to her blonde hair color and neutral skin tone, this color palette blends in too well with her hair color, making it difficult to see her within the gown. I would have loved to see her in a fiery red evening gown.

The Silhouette

Floor’s gown presents a unique A-line silhouette with the recently popular bodysuit and overskirt combination with a steep slit stopping at her hip, a high neckline, long sleeves, and crystal detailing throughout the bodice.

This silhouette showcases Floor’s toned physique beautifully. Her legs could not look any better.

A chiffon skirt moves elegantly as she walks across the stage, off-setting the skin tight bodysuit well.

Although there are many positives to this gown, I don’t think that this particular evening gown does Floor’s natural beauty and stage presence justice. Floor has an amazing figure and the skin tight, nude bodysuit and crystal detailing throughout do not complement her figure well. I also would have loved to see her overskirt have more volume and maybe a dramatic train.

Overall, I am not a fan of this design.

The Styling

A hairstyle such as the one Floor is modeling is great for framing her face while showing off her beautiful blonde hair.

She tied her whole look together with crystal earrings that match the detailing throughout her gown.

The Verdict

Floor’s stage presence and natural beauty are second to none; however, I do not think that this is the most flattering evening gown for her. I would love to see her in something much different. Unfortunately, this gown is a MISS for me.
