Her armor wasn't just dull. It was bulky and visually unappealing, but the worst part is that it made her look like something else. It didn't look like Lux anymore, and I think that was the core of it, the very reason people disliked this skin. I want Lux, not Generic Space Marine #9001.
And while silver/grey could arguably be the "proper color" for a light mage, it's boring. Most people don't like boring.

I do agree that the skin needed some work but since when does every skin match a champions personality. There are people that like Steel Legion lux and want it. If you don't like the Damn skin that don't buy it..
As I've said many times before, a departure from a character's theme has to be done carefully, especially if you are taking a cheerful, light-hearted character (Yes, she is, it's her in-game personality) and making them all dark and gritty. I can see it work, and I have seen it work, but it has to be done carefully, or all you succeed in doing is taking away from what people like about a character and not adding anything meaningful. Steel Legion Lux was not handled correctly, or we wouldn't have had the uproar on the forums that we did.
The reason skins like Suprise Party Fiddlesticks, Gentleman Cho'gath, etc. work the way they do is because they take a dark, gritty character and make them silly and light-hearted, and the contrast is played for comic effect. It's very difficult to get similar results when you go the opposite direction.
