We know that Chakra has a pretty good business creating one-of-a-kind pieces for celebs like Carrie Underwood, Beyoncé, and Rihanna, but his ready-to-wear collection leaves something to be desired. In a few instances, we can appreciate the massive amount of detail work required to create some of these dramatic dresses; in other cases, there are just too many crystals thrown onto a chiffon gown in a color so bright it looks plain cheap.
