The androgynous look is so hot when it’s done right but can also be pretty gauche on the wrong person. The secret to owning this look is to keep things simple while adding hints of feminine details into the ensemble just to balance the whole thing because you don’t want to look too masculine.
Alison Pill certainly pulled off this style at the second season premiere of The Newsroom. She was effortlessly sexy in a Christian Dior tuxedo minidress, and despite the rather manly silhouette of her dress, she still looked flirty and feminine.

By the way, Jennifer Lopez was also spotted in a Christian Dior gown last month. She wore the Pre-Fall 2013 look with H.Stern Stars stud earrings and Brian Atwood black ankle-strap pumps. The dress features a coral hoop skirt with a rise-and-fall hemline and a white cashmere and silk knitted top:
