Had a look through some old magazines last night for inspiration and came across the UK edition of Elle Sept 2010 with Emily Blunt By Matthias Vriens-McGrath on the cover. Emily is wearing a Valentino dress from Fall 2010. Usually I would consider this outfit to have way too much lace, but the black lace and nude colours do actually work for me. What do you think? Is the patterned hosiery too much for an already overly detailed dress?
