Julia Restoin-Roitfeld attended the opening of an art exhibition in London yesterday wearing a lacy look from the fall 2011 Emilio Pucci collection — a fitted gray dress with corset-style tailoring, a bow tie at the neck, and black lace sleeves. She added a pair of black heels and carried a shiny silver clutch.

How do you feel about the balance of the fabrics in this look — does the combination of the glitzy lace and plain gray work?
