Would You Wear an Orange Dress Like Chloe Sevigny?

Wearing bright orange isn’t for the faint of heart, but we’re kind of feeling Chloe Sevigny’s bold frock. Not only is the full-skirted silhouette flattering, but the hue complements the Big Love star’s skin tone. Plus she smartly pairs it with a pale pink clutch and satin pumps that provide the perfect color contrast. As much as we like this look, we’re not so sure we’d be brave enough to don it. But we want to know what you think. Tell us: Would you wear a dress in this shocking shade?

No, its too bright for me. But I think Chloe looks FABULOSO!

I would absolutely wear an orange or other brightly-colored dress. Bright colors are a great way to stand out and still look classy and on-trend without looking too trendy like some prints. Chloe looks great.

I would, but orange looks terrible on me! It actually looks very nice on Chloe, though. I usually hate her style but she looks pretty cute in that picture!

Normally I wouldn’t choose orange… but I would totally wear that particular dress! It is SO adorable and flattering. Defined waistline, flowy skirt, sleeves to hide arms… perfect.

I couldn’t rock orange personally but I love, love, love this look on Chloe!

VaNessa on

I would rock that!!! That’s way too cute!!

I adore that dress, but wonder why you’ve pulled that years-old photo out of storage so late in the game. It’s been a fabulous dress since ’06. Orange is a killer colour, especially in that marigold shade pictured here. Burnt orange is also surprisingly flattering on most skin tones. Love it!

Gorgeous! Chloe looks so fabulous, and a dark orange (very Hermes!) is ultra chic. I would definitely wear it.

She has the body that she can wear anything she wants to. And what she does wear she wears well.
