Trendy or trashy? Jemima Kirke's see-through CFDA Awards dress -- POLL

Posted on

When it comes to dressing for the red carpet, Jemima Kirke is, like her Girls character Jessa Johansson, fiercely bohemian. At last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City, Kirke stood out from the label-draped fashion pack in a long-sleeve, floor-length see-through black dress.

Internet fashion critics gave the mother of two — who proved she doesn’t shy away from sheer when she modeled a see-through wedding dress earlier this year — the thumbs down for her ensemble, which People StyleWatch described as “goth beach apparel.”

The FUG Girls expressed tongue-in-cheek gratitude to the actress, writing “Oh, Jemima Kirke, thank you. THANK YOU. You have brought laughter and joy into my home this morning. You are like Stephen Colbert: You just made me laugh so hard that I snorted Croissan’wich up my nose…”

Is Jemima Kirke’s look just too cool for the old school style set or was it an inappropriate choice for a black tie affair? Click on to cast your vote.
