Yea, Nay, or Eh: Elizabeth Hurley in Roberto Cavalli

At last night’s party for Roberto Cavalli’s new snakeskin MasterCard (hey, if anyone’s going to do it, it’s Roberto), Elizabeth Hurley was on the scene in a white-hot frock from the man himself. The hair is Brigitte Bardot huge, the eyes are Cleopatra smoky, and that décolletage…well, let’s just say she was right not to pile on a necklace. Speaking of skin, Hurley is certainly showing more of it than most fortysomethings, but her safety-pin wearing days are long gone. You could argue her relative sartorial maturation is right on track. What do you think? Is she working it? Or is it too much Liz?
