Stare, Wear or Burn: Katie Leclerc

By January 5, 2013

Follow me on:

It's a whole new year for our Stare, Wear or Burn! Last year, you decided you'd rather burn The Worst Dressed of 2012 rather than even look at them. You're a harsh bunch. Let's see how our victims volunteers fare in 2013.

Yesterday, Katie Leclerc, star of the ABC Family Series, Switched at Birth, boldly stepped into the new year in a blue dress that I can only describe as geometrically interesting.

Katie was attending the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel's '2013 Winter TCA' Press Gala in San Marino, California on January 4th.

So what do you think of the sleeves? I can't stop staring at them, completely unsure of whether I like them or not. It's like she's the Empress of the lost city of Atlantis. Or maybe they're little wings that work into a frenzy after an event, carrying her into the sunset. That's either incredibly awesome or just a terrible... but I can't figure out which.

When you vote, take into account the nude heels, a color that I think was a wise choice to pair with the overpowering jewel-toned blue.

So... would you rather wear it, stare at it, or burn it?
Update: The Results are in! You decided you would rather burn poor Katie's dress than give it a glance. Maybe next time, Katie! Didn't like the results? Follow DIY Fashion on Facebook and Twitter, and Subscribe to the DIY Fashion newsletter to get a jump on the next Stare, Wear or Burn styles.

I could never pull that dress off. But, she sure does.
