Brooklyn Decker & Rihanna (Bauer Griffin). She fights a band of rogue extraterrestrials in Battleship, but on the red carpet of the Sydney premiere Brooklyn Decker was involved in another sort of skirmish: the battle of the incongruous sleeves.
The actress and model was spotted wearing a unique black and white gown with bold gold sleeves from J. Mendel's Fall 2012 collection. Decker slightly altered the frock, adding in black panels where there were originally open triangles of bare midriff and slightly raising the plunging neckline.
While the 24-year-old starlet is perfectly on trend with her futuristic fashion choice, we're not sure the look is entirely successful. The gold lamé sleeves are an inventive idea but are at-odds with the sleek black and white simplicity of the rest of the dress. They also seem a bit too loose, which is problematic with a fabric like lamé that shows every single ripple and pucker.
What do you think? Does Brooklyn Decker's J. Mendel style risk pay off or fall flat?
