I’m sure you’ve seen the movie by now, and I’m also sure you’ve already seen this picture of Katherine Heigl taken while she attended the Killers premiere, but don’t you just wonder what went through her head when she decided to wear that outfit?

Katherine Heigl at the Los Angeles Premiere of ‘Killers’ held at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome – Arrivals Los Angeles, California – June 1, 2010

The dress is an Oscar de la Renta and is actually pretty; not to mention in season as well. A lot of celebrities have been spotted wearing combo dresses lately (dresses that look like it’s made up of two pieces), there’s Kristen Stewart to name one (click here to read article).

But that particular ODLR dress is not suited for her. It will only look best on someone less curvy and less busty; and Katherine Heigl does not fall in that category.

Allow me to point out why. The dress is ruffled – from top to bottom. Ruffles add volume. Volume equals weight. Katherine Heigl is already curvaceous and busty. She does not need the extra volume on her bust, nor does she need the extra weight. To make it even worse, she opted to style her hair in curls, adding more volume into the look.

To make a long story short, she chose the wrong dress for her body type; and the wrong hair style too. Tsk, tsk, tsk. If this was a stylist’s doing and not hers, that stylist should be fired.

Oh! And did I mention? I think the sandals she wore to the event don’t match the outfit. Pumps would have looked better.

So today, I’m not going to try to recreate Katherine’s look, nor will I give you the usual look for less. What I’m going to do is come up with the kind of  outfit that she should have worn; something ideal for her shape.

After some digging, here’s what I came up with:

A yellow Elie Tahari Lucia Silk Blouse ($232) with a V-neckline and extended sleeves to brighten up her face, offset its roundness, and provide more width on her shoulders.

A beautifully fitted Vivienne Westwood Accident Skirt ($292; sale!) with an asymmetrical hemline that will show off her curves and elongate her legs further.

Final touches include a gorgeous pair of red Kendra Scott Linden Earrings ($54), a dressy pair of soft suede black BCBGeneration Doriel Peep Toe Pumps ($30; sale!), and an exquisite piece of patchwork clutch with contrasting red and purple accents from J. Renee ($28; sale!)

As for her hair, I think it should be straight, sleek, and side swept. Well, what do you think?
