We’re the first to admit that Bones star Emily Deschanel (Temperance Brennan) has a distinctive sense of style — just like her sister Zooey! But sometimes her fashion choices leave us feeling, well, polarized.

Take this “casual cocktail” dress she wore to The Farm Sanctuary benefit on June 16, 2012 in Los Angeles. The color blocking is very on trend and the cut is flattering, but the autumnal colors and heavy pleats look more like a dress for Thanksgiving dinner than an outdoor cocktail hour in June. At the same time — look at her, she’s Emily and she’s gorgeous in anything.

We’d love to hear what you think! Emily’s dress — hot or not?
