1. The slightly off red color helped create a slightly "off" sense to the scene.
This maroon deep "V" neck dress with elbow length ruffled sleeve detail is by Alexander McQueen. I thought the exaggerated shoulders were great and when added to the deep "V" neck, the exaggerated shoulders and the slightly off (but beautiful) red color, helped create a slightly "off" sense to the scene where Alicia was not able to replicate the quality of her interview from the previous day. She looks great in the dress, but all the design details helped keep her away from being direct and powerful in the scene.
