In or Out: Christina Aguilera in Givenchy

Posted on July 13, 2011

You guys, we’re very confused about this one. All our bitchy fashion blogger instincts are failing us here. You see, Xtina once again went out in a tacky, too-tight dress, enough makeup to paint an army of hookers, hair that looks like you could break it off like dried spaghetti and a pair of gigantic silver platform heels to Snooki things up even more. And yet?

Christina Aguilera presents the new fragrance ‘Royal Desire’ at the Upside East Lounge in Munich, Germany.

She somehow looks better here than she has in ages.

Givenchy Metal-Eyelet Dress

Don’t get us wrong; we don’t think she looks great or anything, but some sort of weird voodoo is going on here because this is how she always dresses and the normal result is that she looks like a 70-year-old burlesque queen. Somehow, she looks her age here. What magic is this? And honey, why couldn’t you extend it to your outfit?

VOTE NOW!

IN! Who cares how she did it? It’s STYLE MAGIC and she is a GODDESS, bitches!

OUT! A chemical peel and good lighting will never make up for bad taste.

The voting is still open on Kyra Sedgwick’s little getup, which strangely included both a shitty black dress and a need for a haircut. Darlings, it’s a theme today!

    There’s a distinct lack of orange here, which may be contributing to your confusion.  Even so, total out.

    • Anonymous

      I was thinking the same thing.  She looks totally different w/o the orange.  Not a huge improvement, but a step in the right direction.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=6416893 Jenna Kuhmann

      I agree.  The reason she looks so good is that her foundation actually matches her skin tone.  The rest of it, however, makes her look like a hooker for clowns.

    • Anonymous

      That *is* what it is.  I hadn’t noticed but the orange ages her and always reminds me of George Hamilton.

    • narita_rayna

      you nailed it! the oompaloompa face is toned down. also the height of the hair is less guidette than usual. the length & style of the dress suit her, even if it is a few sizes too small.  and she gets points for slammin’ heels.

      i still cant give her an in, though, even if this is an improvement.  she’s got a long way to get before she gets it right.  XTina is OUT.  

  • Judy_J

    You’re right…she doesn’t look quite so much like Mae West here.  Maybe it’s because Mae West didn’t wear mini skirts.  Whatever, Xtina does look better, but I still can’t give her an IN.  That dress is beyond tacky, and she needs some serious work done on her hair and makeup.  OUT.

      I sorta like the dress on the model.  But on Xtina?  Just goes to show you–and I know from experience–the difference having a huge bust makes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=513945580 Megan Patterson

    I don’t HATE it, she defintiely needs to cut that hair off though. And she definitely looks her age, but I think it’s because she lay off the bronzer/self tanner

  • http://twitter.com/Strunkette Ann Strunk

    I say IN.  Somehow she looks good.  I think she either lost some weight or didn’t try to stuff herself into a smaller size for once.  We must encourage the good!

    • Anonymous

      That may be contributing.  The dress looks closer to actually fitting her than what’s she’s been wearing recently.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_C6VUXT5OWDIBSFGML4ZC5MPQ2I mari paz

    It’s the bitchface she’s giving. Normally she has an open-mouthed smile that transforms her face into bimbo territory. Now she looks like she doesn’t give a shit what you think, and I’ll rate that an IN.

    Its a step in the right direction, so I say in. The dress isn’t as tight as she usually does it, I kinda like the shoes, and while she has a lot of makeup on, it doesn’t seem to be as horrifyingly painted on as she usually does.  Big improvements. But someone desperately needs to attack her hair with scissors.

    I just want to note that that blush is an awful color on her. I think it’s made for someone with darker skin… on her, it looks like her cheeks are bruised with inexplicable symmetry.

      So true!!  I’m confused by her boobs.  The one whose side we see in her cleavage looks like it’s 3″ higher than the one that remains in the dress.

    This is the best her hair has looked in ages…it’s still bad hair, but it makes me think of a tacky hair dresser instead of an aging country star. This dress is also something a young woman would wear, unlike most of the other things I’ve seen her in the past few  years

  • MilaXX

    It’s close. Still not good but close. I think the clothes are a hair looser than usual, the makeup’s a hair less caked on and the weave though not great doesn’t look like she got it from the $.99 bin at Wig World. The shoes however are atrocious. They look like leftover’s from Lisa the Cyberwoman’s wardrobe.

    Close but no cigar, still OUT

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MN3NQ262BP3YF2RQJ4DYQQBDMA Shalia

    Up.  A.  Size.  I promise, the universe will not implode if you go up a size.  Wearing properly fitting clothes actually makes you look THINNER than stuffing yourself into something that’s clearly too small.

    Go buy this in a size that fits (see that?  It’s meant to zip *over* your boobs…) and we’ll talk about being in.  But when you’re one inadvertent step from splitting the seams (or exposing more cleavage than even Xtina intended) it can be nothing but an OUT.

  • Susan Foster

    I’m giving an OUT because I like the dress zipped up (as shown on model).  Becomes “look at ME!!!” when unzipped, and much less attractive.

    Yes, less spray tan helps.  In a weird way, her “less-than-thrilled-to-be-here” face works for her instead of her usual “vamps, tramps, gypsies and thieves” mugging normally seen on the red carpet.  That is a hot little dress, I prefer it with the zipper up.  That’s a lot of tit for early afternoon.

    She still looks 40+ in the first picture, though only 35ish in the subsequent ones. At least she doesn’t look like she should be collecting social security.

    What she did right here was balance. She’s got some foundation garment slimming her hips a tad, and then she’s got the shoulders and bust emphasized. The skirt’s the right length, the bodice hits at her waist, and her hair looks as if someone actually put conditioner in it in the last week sometime.

    For anyone else it would be an out, but following the “encourage them when they improve” principle, I’ll give her a mild IN.

    Personally I think it’s the color of the dress. If it was any color but black she’d look awful. But the black is sophisticated and the design keeps it young.

    She looks quite good here. I’m kind of a fan of her usual style, in a weird way. I always get where she’s coming from and I always love the vintage inspiration, but she just doesn’t pick pieces that are flattering (or that fit her properly). But I’ve never thought that she should stray away from a vintage-inspired style, especially because she clearly likes that the most. But she does look pretty good here….for Christina. The dress fits alright and I love the shoes. Now she just has to continue trying to fix that bloody tan (it does look a bit better, though). Next step, the hair! I’m going to go with an IN, though.

    Grading on her (relatively extreme) curve, this is definitely an in. There’s lots of things she should change to look even better (the usual “size up on the dress, tone down the makeup, de-hooker the shoes, check the hair into an ICU” checklist) but she’s managed to keep her tiny army of taste issues and still find something that doesn’t NOT work outright. So definite “in”… for her.

    Wow, look, she’s not spray-tanned! Maybe because it’s summer and she can actually get some sun. I think the black dress is classy verging on tacky, and that makes her look slightly presentable. But nothing will save her fried hair and 4-year old’s make up. Out. 

  • http://profiles.google.com/sauchih Sau-Chih Feng

    I think it’s the dress. Yes, it’s a little small for her, but that’s a pretty chic rocker style dress, and the shoes actually go with the dress, for all that they’d be tasteless on their own. So even though her make up is hideous and her hair is fried, I’m going to give her an IN for moving the right direction.

    She has, as far as I know, never once looked actually beautiful or stylish.  She’s a singer and has a particular persona and that’s fine.  But I think she is up to the same tricks as Lady Gaga from a different angle…  Basically, they’re part of a stable of girls who are truly talented and therefore deserve their fame, however, they’re not actually beautiful.  So they fall back on extra-dramatic looks to call attention to something else.  I’m my little theory and I’m sticking with it.

    She does look better, but well here’s what I would say.. honey that dress is not for you.. let it free and go to somoeone with a smaller bust.  I understand , dear, I really do.   As someone with a larger bust, I emphasize.. I don’t do buttons, zippers or vests (except for one unfortunate period in the late 80′s)

    i realise it’s not her fault that she’s a buxom lady, but the way she took a magnificent dress and made it all BOOBS! annoys me to no end.

    I attribute to the power of Givenchy. I guess it makes ANYBODY look more edgy. I give it an IN with reservations.

    Out.  Despite the shoes and earrings, the whole get-up screams “aging biker chick” to me.  And she’s not old!!!!

    Out.  That dress does not fit her properly and she looks like a streetwalker.

    IN, but only for her. Graded on the curve. No magic: she’s thinner, or looks thinner because there are fewer bulging-out-of-the-too-tight-clothes than usual, she’s not orange, and her skin looks as good as it’s looked in years. And she’s either coiffed or lit so that we don’t see a lot of crispy fly-aways from the hair.

    This is probably what she *thinks* she always looks like. It’s still an unfortunate look for a pretty gal her age but it’s her look and it’s working here.

    She definitely loves her Louboutin’s.  She wore them on every episode of “The Voice”.   Okay, I admit it.  I am a crazy shoe lady who will check out the shoes (and handbags) before I do the dress.  Since I don’t wear a size 2, I can at least wear a pair of shoes that are pretty, and no one has to be sized for a nice purse. :)

    In.  She’s not orange so that’s a plus.  I really wish she would dial the makeup(mostly the blush) down one more notch and I’d forgive the hair.

    I think it’s the ever-so-slightly softer eye makeup and more naturally-styled hair.

    She’s still out. I like the dress on the model, but it’s way too tight on her. Her bitchface isn’t doing much for me either.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1046681022 Paula Berman

    Now HERE is someone who needs to cut her hair (extensions) off.  She is so pretty, why does she have to do herself like this?

  • http://profiles.google.com/aislingoconnor Aisling O’Connor

    Jesus, give me strength. I think she looks awful. The Givenchy is beaten onto her and looks cheap as hell. What is going on with her fingers? Has Frau Seal been giving her hand-accessorising tips?

  • http://profiles.google.com/lady.meliko Melissa Kelly

    Looking “better” does not equal looking good.  While I accept that she’s staying true to her persona, I give her a definite OUT.

  • Christine Campbell

    OUT.  I refuse to grade on a curve for someone who has so many resources available to her.

  • Anonymous

    She does look better than usual plus i really like tat dress… Just not on her. if she had just bothered to wear the right size! She goes at least 2 sizes down her normal size, does she think an unflattering dress will make her look thiner? We will never now.
    Nice try girl, but you’ll have to try again! OUT.

    I say IN.  It’s like everything wrong is right again!

  • Mariah J

    She should have zipped that thing all the way up. She can’t not have her boobs popping out of every outfit she puts on. OUT

  • http://twitter.com/belfebe Laura Martinez

    Still fugly.  But certainly making some steps in the right direction.  The dress is nice, but too tight and unzipping it to show cleavage does not help matters at all.  Looks better than normal, but definitely OUT.

    In. I grade on a curve. 

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

    I think if she picked either lips or eyes, she wouldn’t look nearly so tacky to us, even if she does stick to her “madam” fashions.  She could also stand to cover up the boobs once in a while. 

    In.  I’ll give a girl a break.

    The dress does flatter but her makeup and hair causes points to drop off.  OUT.  Barely.

    Hate the hair, and the dress.
    Too white, too tight.

    out. new makeup artist is great, though, major props for making her look closer to her actual age!

  • http://www.facebook.com/kim.pham3 Kim Pham

    IN for me!I think it’s because her makeup is simpler on the eyes compared to the amount she usually wears. Also, the black stands out because it’s not too shiny and she doesn’t have too voluminous hair as before. And her expression is yeah, I look awesome!

    OUT. The dress is slightly less hooker-ish than usual, but I’m not setting the bar that low.

    I’m grading on a curve and giving her an IN.  A more natural hairstyle (a few low-lights) and a trim and she might get a werq.

    this is an IN, but only for her. I’m also grading on a curve. we have to encourage positive change people!

  • Robert Sanchez

    I think it’s only because the skirt is a few inches longer than she usually favors. I just can’t believe she doesn’t have a single gay in her world who hasn’t said, ‘Gurl, I will snatch you baldheaded if you go out in public looking like that!”

  • Margot Brose

    It’s still out. Negative infinity plus 2 still equals negative infinity, dolls.
