She looks particularly good in Lauren (2), Lanvin (6), and in the dress she wore to honor Jared C Monti (10).

here are two other great outfits. she seems to do very well with gowns but she has had some moments where I scratched my head. and even though shes an older woman, im in my twenties and I would wear some of these outfits. O made a great choice marrying her.
