In or Out: Miranda Cosgrove in Loewe

Posted on June 07, 2011

Darlings, once again we are forced to feature two IN or OUT posts in one day because our cup of discussable outfits runneth over. Behold:

Miranda Cosgrove at Nickelodeon’s premiere of “iParty with Victorious” in Los Angeles. Miranda Cosgrove wears a Loewe dress paired with Christian Louboutin heels.

Loewe Spring 2011 Collection/Model: Ashley Smith (MARILYN)

At first, we were all, “Cute! Fresh! Girly!” It seems perfect for a Nickelodeon star to wear to a Nickelodeon event. And it has a kind of fresh feel to it even if it is just another pink blouse and skirt. First glance: very cute. Except… we’re getting really tired of the pin-straight center part, which seems to keep popping up on the RC like a persistent fungus. Also, the dress is kind of shapeless on her, isn’t it? Not that every dress needs to be form-fitting, but with the dress forming a straight vertical line, we’re not sure we like that black horizontal line cutting her right in half. But kudos to her for being a young starlet who dresses for style rather than for attention. It’s an almost perfectly cute getup otherwise, so feel free to tell us we’re being picky bitches about our complaints.

VOTE NOW!

IN! You’re being picky bitches about your complaints!

OUT! Fraulein Maria had more interesting getups than this!

It’s far to early to tally the votes on Kelly Rowland’s 1983 school secretary outfit, but feel free to form an opinion on that one if you haven’t done so already, darlings.

      In, it is cute enough for her and I’m OK if she waits a while to show off her figure. She’s young.. got plenty of time to do so.

      But the fact that the print on the skirt looks kind of like Mickey Mouse ears is ironic. Don’t you think?

        I was thinking the same thing about the print on the skirt!

      I have this feeling she’s going to be tremendously famous. I’m thinking the line should maybe sit up a little higher. Or she should be taller. Or both. But it is a kid focused event and she’s achieving “little girl grownup” without being Lolita. So IN.

      It’s cute, but I completely agree that the silhouette may not be right for her.  Also a few bracelets or SOME accessory would have been welcome.  hmmm I guess I’ll say IN

      Hrmpf!!!  i too am torn.  it is an adorable dress that hides any shape at all.  but that said, she is a cute slim person, what does she even need a defined waist for anyway??  We all know that it is there.  Ok, i am decided, she gets an IN just for making a non-typical choice that still looks decent.   

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MNMVM2GPVUEIOJXBOSLCXKAW4U judy brown

      That black line seems to hit the model closer to her waist, giving the appearance of a waistline. but this is apparently a shorter girl, so the dress is boxier on her.

      Boxy isn’t the best look for a short girl (I speak from experience), but it’s an otherwise cute and fresh look (especially for a Nikolodean star.)

    • Lattis

      12 yo son says OUT. And he’s a fan of iCarly. He said the skirt looks like she’s wearing a Hello Kitty gift bag.

      oh–it’s icarly! i didnt recognize her & i actually know who she is!

      it’s a fab dress nonetheless. “beltline cuts in the wrong place” would be a compliment compared to my own personal thoughts re the, say, very minor tragedies of boredom worn to, say {redux}, the cfda awards.

      edited for dyslexia, sorry.

      I think she looks absolutely adorable. IMO, I think this is a dress that could only be pulled of by someone really young and she’s rocking it. I don’t even mind the hair – again because I think it is a style that works best on younger girls. A total IN!!!!

      It’s cute enough, so I’d say in, but it obliterates her waist, if she has one.

      Yes, Boys, you’re being picky bitches about your complaints.  She looks adorable, better than the model.  If she continues to wear those shoes, however, she will need surgery.

      oooh, so close.  I am with TLo, it just doesn’t fit right.  I don’t think clothes have to cling, but they do need to fit.  It just looks too big in the waist.

        And what is with the shoulder pads on a sleeveless dress? It make her look like she has her shoulders hunched.

      I wish the waist was a little more defined but I have to give her an IN.  Very cute.

    • MilaXX

      I’m going to be kind and give her a modest IN. It’s cute and the rest of the outfit looks great, even if the shoes are a tad too big. The only problem is the dress doesn’t give her a waist and she doesn’t seem to have enough natural curves to help this along. Since she hasn’t been a major fashion don’t yet I’ll let it pass.

      Too bad. Shapeless on her, although very cute dress. No chic. OUT.

    • margaret meyers

      I really dislike this dress.  The high collar and shoulder pads (yes, there are shoulder pads) are making her look short-necked or hump-backed.  The waistlessness is awkward: when flappers did it the longer line went gracefully to the hips not the waist.  The skirt is supposed to rest on the hips to give the blouse some movement, but her skirt skims her hips, leaving the dress to hang away from her body like one of those “Fat Clown” suits with the hula-hoop sewn into the waist band.
      By jiminy this dress makes me cranky!  I love Miranda, and she is the only good thing going on here..

      It doesn’t quite look right on the model either, she just has her hip flung out to the breaking point. Very odd outfit, colors are cute, detailing and pattern are cute…but it can’t decide if it wants to be an a-line dress or a pencil skirt and top. Not quite OUT, more of an EH. I wonder if her hand placement isn’t affecting the look as well?

    • barbara affolter

      I think I’m too old to know who she is, so I don’t know what her typical style is.  She looks fresh and cute, but also kind of like she’e playing dress-up with an older sibling’s clothes.  I’m going to give her an IN on principle, since she looks young refined and not like she’s given up acting for the child sex trade, but she does look a mite shapeless.

    • Anonymous

      The waistline, oh, the waistline!  It hits at such a bad spot – too high to be dropped-waist/flapper but too low to be flattering – and even makes the model look shapeless.  Also, she shouldn’t have stolen her mother’s wear-to-work pumps.  Still, the color works for her age and coloring (though not against the orange carpet) and I love the skirt!

    • Anonymous

      IN. The black line hits the model just right but on Miranda it seems off and looks kind of clunky. It looks like it actually pulls away from her body, which looks odd. But still, it’s awfully pretty and fresh and the color looks great.

      IN. Not only is it a cute outfit, but none of your criticisms really count for someone who’s only 17 or 18.

      If she were 25 I might not call you picky (though I’d still disagree), since at that age, apparently, actresses have a professional obligation to continuously remind the industry that they do, indeed, have the hot body of most young women who work on it daily.

      I’m confused about why you call it a “pin straight center part” when it seems to me to be straight only for the front 1/2, and then in the back it seems zig-zagged. (Frankly I think she’d have done better with a simple updo, anyway.)  I think she’s at quite possibly the ONLY age when anyone could possibly wear this dress, although I agree that the waistline seems too high–a better flapper-type look would drop the waist a couple of inches.  But she’s covered, cute, stylish, and looks like she’s happy with her image.  So I’ll give her an IN.

    • Anonymous

      Ya know… so many times we’ve seen 14 year old starlets dress like  25 year old party girls.  We also get too much of the 43 year old actress dressing like it’s their first communion (Why hello Kristin Davis! How are you doing this evening?).  The fact that Miranda is dressed adorable, age appropriate AND stylish gets a hearty “IN” by me!

    • Anonymous

      A teenager NOT wearing skankwear?  She gets an automatic IN from me! The dress doesn’t fit her particularly well, and the front of the blouse part is tucked a little too perfectly evenly — on the model, it’s a bit sloppier and thus makes the whole outfit look more relaxed — and the shoes are too small and she’s too young to be abusing her feet like that yet.  But she’s covered, she’s not wearing 17 pounds of makeup, and she looks young and cute and cheerfully attired.  We need more teens dressing with taste, please!

      TLO read my mind. The dress is shapeless and I, too agree that it doesn’t have to be form-fitting at all times, but this dress looks like it’s supposed to be. This outfit is also a little too mature for her. Everything about this outfit is basic.
      She’s an OUT to me

    • http://profiles.google.com/iamandyleigh Andrea Young

      Okay, the problem as I see it, (and Lord knows everyone’s dying to hear it) is that the skirt is huge on her and it’s sitting too low on her torso.  If it were the right size and up just a skosh where it should be then the shape would look entirely different, and better.  Also, are there shoulder pads in that sleeveless blouse?  They look odd.

      I agree about the limp, straight hair.  It’s not a ’70s trend I want to relive.

      Nevertheless, I’m voting IN!  Sure she looks like she’s wearing stuff from Mommy’s closet, but Mommy has good taste.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YBL3AMNXZRPUIBPGVMOSJFBG44 Karen Johnson

      I think it would be better if the line were either a few inches higher or a few inches lower.  As it is, it’s not tremendously flattering on her.  That said, she looks good.  It’s a fun idea for a dress and is age-appropriate.

    • http://profiles.google.com/cracklerod Jasper Peng

      OUT her eyebrow shaping/lining makes it look like her face is concaving in. And the skirt is almost a perfect rectangle shape. Although that is a cute shade of pink on her, and definitely age appropriate

      Oh dear. My first impression was of a pink bucket that had been attached to the front and back (but not the sides) of a pink blouse, and as a result was dragging the blouse down. And now unfortunately that’s all I see. So, OUT! If only it had fitted her as well as it fits the model.

      It’s probably just the angle the photo’s been taken at, but she looks like she has very short legs and quite a disproportionate upper half. Perhaps if the skirt was a bit shorter like it is on the model, that would help. Still very much IN, though, since she looks cute, the colour is lovely and she isn’t trying too hard.

      You know, it doesn’t happen often, but I think this calls for going down a size.

      Yes, the waistband doesn’t work, and I think that pose is to point out that yes, she does have a waist. But if you look at the skirt? Looks to me that there is extra fabric there. Not just skimming the body but not yet floating away. A smaller size might have brought the waistband up a bit. And if her hair was styled differently, it would clean up the lines.

      Gee, I thought this was going to be an “in, but” post, but I think I really have to go “out”.

      Tall, fashion fug people (Cate Blanchet, Tilda Swinton, par example both are juuust on thiiis side of ugly but the force of their personalities makes them goddesses. ) They can pull off fashion fug clothes. Remember Tilda’s shoe with the huge christmas flower on it? This little girl is cute but she’s too cute, too short and too ordinary wear this.

      There are some issues with this outfit, of that there is no doubt; but when you consider the wardrobes of so many other Disney starlets (past and present) I’m just rooting for Miranda to carry on aiming for chic rather than cheap. So, in my score book, she’s IN just to give her encouraging validation.

    • Tamara Hogan

      Big IN here – I think it’s adorable – which is a perfectly appropriate thing for an actress her age to be. Very refreshing after the recent spate of desperate gyno hemlines.

      It should be shorter.  It’s pin straight on the model too but because it’s mid thigh on the model it looks less shapeless.

      I think it would be a ton cuter and fit her properly if it didn’t have those built-in shoulder pads.  What on EARTH are those things?  if the shoulders could lay correctly, it would blouse nicely and be perfect. The color and tone of the dress are absolutely perfect for the event and the shoes have a great cheekiness given her youth.

      In.  I think she looks cute and age-appropriate.  I think the waist is a bit weird, but I like that it is different.  It’s not a poufy princess skirt or a skin-tight tube or a long gauzy drape with a slit to her bikini line.  I think she wears her hair like this all the time, even on her show, so it doesn’t bother me so much, other than the fact that it’s the same hair all the time.  A little bit of variety would be nice.

      It seems to me that this dress needs a very specific body to make it work perfectly. Perhaps more curve in the hip? The model’s not doing much better in it than she is.

      However, it is a super cute dress, and very appropriate. So IN!

      Not horrible, but out.  It makes her look less pretty than she is.  The dress doesn’t look good on the model, either.

      The piping (I think it’s piping) around the waist of that dress does weird things to the shape of it. I think it would look better with a flat black band or a belt or something.

    • mcarlson

      Oooh, I’m torn. I think she looks super-cute at first glance, but that waist on the dress is odd. It looks like the heavy fabric of the skirt doesn’t work will with the light fabric of the top.
      Overall, I’d give her an In.

      It looks cute but then it also looks like it doesn’t fit her body right. I am going to have to OUT because I just don’t like how she looks in it.

      IN! You guys really ARE picky bitches, but I love you for that.

      out!!!! if it had dipped in just an inch or two at the black band like it appears to be doing on the model, then it’d be an in (even though this outfit is maybe a bit too juvenile…she’s going to college soon but she still looks like she’s 12), but its almost bowing out, which makes no sense.

      I think she looks adorable, but her hand-on-hip pose isn’t doing the dress any favors.

      In. She looks adorable. The waistline has a strange shape, but whatever, cute is as cute does.

    • http://twitter.com/wrenaria Kimmy Hescock

      Out. She’s too short for this ensemble. Maybe if the waist scootched up a bit it could work. But as is, no. Too visually disjointing for me. I do like the colors on her though.

      In, I think it’s cute on her.  I agree with the Mickey Mouse ears on the skirt.  At first glance, that’s what it looks like.  I think the center part and straight hair kind of go with the whole vibe on the outfit.

    • Michelle Prahl

      I don’t know. To me, it looks a bit too big? On the runway model, you can see that the skirt has some shape, that it fits the model a little better. But on Miranda, it’s just a big square. I would have preferred a bit more shape.

      IN! I agree with your comments but, yeah, they’re a bit nit-picky. :-)

    • Joyce VG

      IN! She looks adorable.  Her toes look smushed but still IN.

      i agree – i keep resisting the urge to reach out and nip the waist in by just a smidge. otherwise, cute and appropriate for the event.

      also, want her shoes. granted they are simple black pumps, but a stylish lady can’t have too many of those!

    • http://pleasewelcomeyourjudges.com/ Brian @ PWYJudges

      It’s an OUT from me. The top is cute enough but the skirt is hiddy.

    • Anonymous

      Enh, I don’t love it. Too shapeless through the waist and I agree about that horizontal line.
      This dress is the same exact color as the McDonald’s McCafe Strawberry banana thingy on the banner on the left side of my screen. I can’t help but think it would look much fresher and prettier if the blouse were white.

      IN!  At least she’s covered up & doesn’t have any important parts hanging out!  Yes, the skirt is a bit shapeless, but she looks pretty I think & pink is a lovely color on her.

      The skirt hits her in a bad place (it looks much better on the model) and it makes her look like she’s wearing a box. I have to call it an OUT.

      IN. But I wish the outfit wasn’t a decorated refrigerator box.

    • http://twitter.com/mirandom03 Miranda C

      I don’t like the fit in the waist, but overall I’d say she’s IN. I love the color on her.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GXPSQXCA4QZKAXRUMI5M25GI4M Monica H

      out, because it looks like a cute dress that was tucked into a lampshade. It could work on someone taller though.

    • http://twitter.com/kmc1138 Kathleen Coyle

      In.  Taking a risk with an odd shape, great color, very age appropriate and un-skanky.  Very in.  I like the shape of the dress.  It’s definitely odd and off putting at first, but I don’t think a dress has to flatter in a traditional sense to still be flattering.

      Flatter.  Flatter.  Weird word.  Say it out loud.  Flatter.

    • Angela Green

      Out.  Love the skirt, the top is cute, but she looks too boxy.  HATE the hair.  I know sleek is a thing but it’s so not my thing.  I almost never like it.

      Out. It looks like a pink pleated potato sack on her. If it had a belt to show her shape, it coulda worked. The shoes are a yawn.

    • http://twitter.com/purpleflamingo4 Natasha Ann

      I don’t think it’s bad, but I don’t that’s a great color on her and like you said TLo, it needs to be a scooch more fitted. So in short, love the dress but just not on her.

      there is something very odd and toilet paper roll cozie about the way that top meets the skirtage.

    • http://heartprintandstyle.blogspot.com Vivi N

      Pretty dress but no, no, no to the fit. The dress is for someone who’s a bit taller and have some curves. I have to give her a NO.
