In or Out: Gwyneth Paltrow in Alexander Wang

Posted on June 17, 2011

Poodles, this is one of those times where we happily turn over the INing and the OUTing to you. We just can’t figure out how we feel about this dress.

Gwyneth Paltrow attends the 3rd annual Bent on Learning benefit in New York City in an Alexander Wang dress.

First thought: “Ooooh, that’s not very flattering.”

Second thought: “Hey, that’s kind of interesting.”

And it is interesting, but she looks a little droopy and disproportionate in it. And the black accents don’t help. Pair them with that gray and all that downward-sloping draping and it becomes Sad Dress. And no one wants to wear Sad Dress. If the colors were different and the draping had a more dramatic feel to it, we might like this dress, but the more we look at it, the more it’s a couldabin. She could have helped it with some more visually interesting shoes, possibly a belt, and some statement jewelry.

VOTE NOW!

IN! She’s a gorgeous Greek goddess in a mini!

OUT! She’s a Sad Sally!

The voting is still open on Elle Fanning’s “Pretty in Seafoam” retro prom dress. Minions are required to make their opinions known.

    hmmm… it’s a draw, but i’m going to go with my bias here:  OUT.  i just don’t like her, so she has to work it extra hard to get the nod from me.  that’s clearly not happening here.

    Hate the color (why do people choose dishwater gray?) and all the shiny (fabric and face).  Also, her hair looks unusually fried.  She normally has that super healthy preppy blonde blowout look.

    My real issue is the black top.  It makes an expensive dress remind me of a teenager’s home-made Halloween costume.  ”Okay, you can wear a toga but you have wear a shirt underneath!  And a bra!  Also, use these ratty old satin sheets.”  All she needs are Burberry’s horrible jelly gladiator sandals to complete the look.

    OUT.  It’s a black tank under a toga.  How could that possibly be in?

  • Anonymous

    You really had me staring at this one, but I think I figured why it keeps my attention. I think that the dress is interesting and draws the eye. The black against the silver and her pale skin make it look somehow geometrical, and her hair helps the illusion. If you include the precise pleating this has, it looks kind of architectonic, like the sort of painting that has such and intriguing texture you just want to reach out and feel it. So artistically speaking, it’s a pretty (or interesting, I don’t know) dress. 
    But looking at it as clothing, it’s not flattering. She has no waist, her hips look wide and somehow I keep thinking her thighs will look chubby from a front view . If you consider how tall and slender she is, this dress looks like a bad choice all around.
    If I saw the dress in the runway, I might say in. Since it’s a RC and it’s all about the overall look, she’s out.

  • Emily B

    I really want to yank the top up. I’m sure it’s supposed to hang that way, but it looks like the gray part of the bodice is sitting about four inches lower than it should and that’s bothering the hell out of my OCD.

    And the heavy, uneven bronzer! Looks like she sunburned her face and tried to cover it up with heavy foundation.

    Overall: OUT. Not the most egregious out of all time, but an out nonetheless.

    coulda woulda been okay w/o the t-shirt underneath it. i gather that what i thought was a belt is a little slice where the t-shirt peeps thru? heavens, no. & the sunburn doesnt help–somehow the whole mash of this mish makes me focus on the roots, which dont help either.

    Out. I’m not saying it couldn’t be an in. There are women with greater presence and possibly a curvier figure who could do it.

     I’m guessing Ms. Paltrow herself might make it into an in with the right, perfect, bold accessory or even an array of them which made this into a “look” rather than a serenely odd little dress with potential.

    The dress is clashing with her skin, which is looking very orange today.
    She tried to pull it all together with the drape of her hair echoing the drape of the dress, but its not quite pulled together.
    The root cause is the overall color palate: orange, pale yellow, grey, black.
    As you said, interesting, but not particularly flattering.

    With Gwynnie, I have to make sure my dislike of her doesn’t color my opinion. It’s not awful, but the draping does make her chest look weird and out of portion. Not feeling the shoes either. I’m really trying to be fair, and she’s OUT.

    This dress is so weird…the left side of her looks like she’s melting, and then the other half looks structured and flattering. But not really that flattering, you know? It seems like it’s taking away her natural shape and adding to her shape at the same time. It’s interesting but it doesn’t really add up to anything. Out.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_64HSRZWCSJ5RBFGCWDLFQOICYM G

    One thing is for sure.  She has an enviably lean and fit body… and you’d never know it in this dress.  I’d almost call it frumpy on her.   Saggy boobs!  Never thought I’d see the day.  Perhaps color would have helped, but sorry Gwynnie:  OUT

  • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

    I like it, except for that straight hanging section on the skirt.  When everything is draped and curving, and then there’s a piece that just hangs down, it always feels unfinished to me, no matter how beautifully it may be hanging.

    This is my first post on your website, TLo (though I’ve been following your work for 2 years now). You have taught me more about fashion than Project Runway and my girlfriends combined. HUGE, HUGE fan! :)
    And this dress for me is a definite OUT. Very unflattering silhouette, drab color and she looks like she just went into her attic, pulled out an old curtain, draped it around herself and left the house.

    oh man, another one that I’m torn over.  I always applaud the wearing of non-gynocological dresses, I like the gray on her, and her hair, spraytan and makeup look good.  The dress makes her look thick in the middle, nonono!

    to me the color is morose.  it looks like she was on her way to a toga party (perhaps a toga funeral) but she was shy so she put on a high necked tank underneath.  or perhaps it is a designer baby carrier/sling, and the armholes in the tank are big enough to just pop one of the girls out and keep the kid happy.  it’ll be one depressed kid, though, surrounded by all that gray.  and she looks like she has a painful sunburn.  i’m not liking the no eyebrow look of the makeup either. OUT!

  • Patricia Miller

    Out. Despite any feelings I may have about her, I can’t deny that Ms. Goop is an attractive woman. That dress does ugly things to her, and the tank top only makes things worse. I can see the dress as a full length gown, in a rich Midnight Blue, with a more statuesque figure working nicely. She’s slouchy, so is the dress, and the gray-green tone of that drapy shiny stuff is just wrong.

  • Anonymous

    Not good. But, also, is that a dress, or a dress over a tank top? And, also, the proportions are wrong. The bottom half is too short for the drape to work.

    But in all seriousness, that black accent is weird. It’s like a prude had a dress and said, oh, I can’t show that much skin, and put on a black tank top underneath it. It’s just weird.  I love the gray part, just not on her.  But of course, I’d probably say that about anything she wore.

I also dislike anything that shows off the ‘baby boobs’) or had sleeves, or maybe just get rid of that black bit. Maybe if she’d worn silver shoes instead of black. Maybe if she’d accessorized with some amazing earrings to balance out the look, because honestly it looks a little heavy around the hips.

    In.  It’s a little weird dress, but she looks good.

    Young lady, stand up straight.

    She looks pretty, except for the tank top and toga dress!

    OUT! The grey makes her skin and hair look haggard.

    Out. It looks like a cheap shiny dress that I can get off any local blogshop. I like her shoes though.

    Hmmm…this IS a tough one. For me, she’s in from the waist down (LOVE those shoes), and in from the waist up (it’s an interesting top and I like the gray and black combo), but somehow the two put together just don’t work. Too much drapey droopiness as a total look. I’m also not really liking her hair – looks kinda fried and just…too blonde.

    Out.  Over and out.

    It looks like Rami’s museum dress, but in an uglier color and with a t-shirt underneath. A great big, “HUH???”

    Out.

    • Damien Washington

      My thought exactly. “It’s a weak Rami Kashou with a Gap tank under it.”

      I don’t think that would look good on anyone over 14. Out.

    IN for interest. The hair and accessories could have used help, but overall, different! And not bad!

    OUT.  It’s so drab, and the fabric makes it look cheesy.

    In. The criss-cross of the shoes match the criss-cross of the draping on the dress. It’s not the best look, but I don’t think she looks bad enough to warrant an out.

    Psh, in!

    i think it’s a definite OUT, it falls weirdly and is really unflattering. yuck

    OUT. It’s shapeless and everything’s too shiny — dress and face.

    barely an IN…..it has so much more potential!

    Its a good dress, but its a bad dress for her.  Out.

  • elzatelzabelz

    OUT- it is interesting, but not at all flattering. It is drapey in the wrong areas and poufy and weird. No.

  • Helen C

    The dress is nice.  She looks bad because she’s orange with white hair. 

  • Anonymous

    First thought, seen from the waist up: Hmmmm, could be interesting, maybe a bit of the classical, Grecian goddess sort of thing…. Second thought, head to toe: I don’t like her knees or feet. It looks frumpy as a short dress. It needs to be longer, with an interesting gladiator sandal, preferably not black, bracelets and a wider belt.

    Out.

    From the neck down, she’s in.  She could have played it better, but she’s still in.  Someone needs to have an intervention with everything that’s happening from the neck up, though.

    Out, it’s a terribly shaped dress. I am trying to figure out what body shape would wear it well and I don’t think there is any.

    OUT.  Looks like something I made for my barbie dolls when I was 8.  Back then my medium was mainly bandanas and scarves. I do like the subtle makeup, but I am dying to see her with her natural curl or wave instead of this blown-out contraption.

    OUT.  And her face is looking lobsterish.

    Gwynnie needs nice, encouraging words, y’all.
    This dress is kind of out of her usual element, and even though it’s a miss, at least she’s not tall, tight, and shiny/flesh-colored.
    IN, but just because I want to be supportive.

    No, I think she’s working it.  IN.

    OOOOOOOUT. 

    I have no commitment to encourage people to wear more interesting dresses. So I can just say it like it is. She looks sad and droopy – makes that slightly interesting dress into an ill-knotted curtain. In grey.

    She and the dress would look 100x better if she wasn’t schlumping.  Stand up straight, Mrs. Martin!

    This isn’t just sad. This is Esther Greenwood in killer shoes.

    I don’t really know. Something about this dress is just off. I’m going to have to give it an out. It’s just not working for me. 

  • http://profiles.google.com/meredith.piatt Meredith Piatt

    Sad Sally!  Would have been much better in a different color combo and different fabrication (not her fault-too shiny/weird).

  • Anonymous

    Out, out, out!  The black accents look like she was uncomfortable with the dress, and threw on a chemise underneath.  This is such a sad look.  It has potential, but the final verdict from me is that this is just wrong.  Get rid of the black, just leave the draping and fix it on top, and it MIGHT work okay.  I never thought I would say this… I hate the black!

    OUT. Any dress that makes her look remotely rotund is a bad choice. Also, she’s orange.

    She’s a lady who loves her monochrome.

    OUT.  It’s like… little black dress wrapped in silky cave woman garb with a belt.  That thing wouldn’t be flattering on ANYONE…  Maybe Nathan Lane, but that’s IT…
