In or Out: Julianne Moore in Bottega Veneta

Posted on August 22, 2011

Julianne, we apologize ahead of time for the poor angle on these shots.

Julianne Moore at “What’s On The Table”, an event to combat hunger hosted by Vanity Fair and the United Way of NYC in Sagaponack, New York in Bottega Veneta.

Bottega Veneta Resort 2012 Collection/Model: Model Hanne Gaby Odiele



But you should apologize for making a public appearance looking like this. You’re on stage, girl. It’s not like you just had to wave at the photographers on the way in, YOU’RE ON STAGE LOOKING LIKE YOU JUST CAME FROM YOUR SPINNING CLASS.Why is your face so shiny and colorless? Why is your hair such a tight little bird’s nest?

The dress is really cute but it sure as hell wouldn’t be our choice. It turned her into a brick, shape-wise. Besides, the hem’s all screwed up in the front. As we like to say, when one of us is heading out not looking so great, and in the immortal words of Marlene Dietrich: “You’we a mess, honey.”

We refuse to be dogmatic about pedicures. As long as your feet are buffed and your nails are clean, you’re good to go as far as sandals are concerned. Applying rules to ladies’ toes is a bridge too far for us, but the commentariat is usually pretty strict about it. Although those shoes are about as unflattering as shoes can get. They make her look like she has duck feet.

It’s amazing to us that a woman as attractive as she is, with access to the kinds of items and services that she has, routinely goes out looking so bad. We’d say “fire your gays” but looking at this mess, we find it hard to believe she has any. “Hire some gays” is more like it.

VOTE NOW!

IN! I’m legally blind!

OUT! Get back in your limo; the hungry can wait.

Voting is still open on Rihanna’s “P is for Perfume” monstrosity.

      I totally looked like this yesterday! My hair was pulled back like that and I was wearing a shapeless orange and blue shift. I also didn’t shower or leave the house. I watched TV, read, and napped all day.

        I totally looked like this this morning! Hair loosely braided! No time for foundation! Lipstick waved in general direction of my face!  Except that it was 6.45, I was walking the kids to the bus stop, and the dress was shapeless because it’s the wrong size.

      Julianne, dear, you have a nice shape, a beautiful face, and exquisite coloring. You’re hiding your light under a bushel basket. Now, go fix your hair and makeup and don something tailored to your shape, something in a nice jewel tone. Both sapphire blue and emerald green would look fabulous on you. Love, Lauren

      OUT.  I didn’t think it was possible for her to look worse than in her pussy bow IN/OUT post, but she managed.  She looks completely shapeless in that dress and her hair and makeup look like she’s just rushed out of the gym.  Nothing wrong with running errands like that–but no, not on stage.

      that shade of orange makes her freckles look grey, and no to the hair, too. Also yes, someone was drunk when sewing the hem.

        …that shade of orange makes her freckles look grey

        Thank you! Because I’d been sitting here just knowing that the orange was dangerously awful on her, but it wasn’t because it was clashing with her hair-colour.  Confusion solved!

          Yes, I am a redhead, but I don’t have freckles so orange works – brings out my hair.
          For her lavender would be better, tone down the freckles (purple shades make me look like I have the flue)
          Redhair can be tricky but by the time you are our age (I’m 46) you should have it figured out.

      OUT! The dress is cute, but not for her. Hair looks like she was doing housework. Face is in serious need of some powder. I am one of those that thinks a sandal requires at the very least a pale pink or beige coat of polish, but it’s not a deal breaker for me.

      Oh honey, I gave you a pass last time, but not here. You are such a striking, beautiful woman. BUT, the severe hairstyles do not flatter your face. I don’t mind the freckles or the toes or the shoes, but did someone throw that cute dress in the dryer on high to remove wrinkles?  Why else would it fit so wonky?

      I have to disagree with one thing, TLo.  I think that dress is hiddy even on the model.  But it is particularly bad on Julianne.  It does indeed make her look like a box, and the hem being so wonky in the front makes it look like she slept in it and then ran out the door.  Which might explain what’s going on with her face and hair, too.  Maybe she went to bed in the dress with a heavy layer of moisturizer on and her hair pulled back out of it and then leaped up and ran out the door to fight hunger.

      But why IS her face so shiny?  Looking at it closer, it doesn’t look so much like moisturizer as it does like she had a thick layer of polymers or possibly shellack applied.

      I’m not even going to chide her for the lack of pedicure because My God!  Those shoes are sooooo ugly.  I’m going to have to stop now because I feel bad for her, there’s just nothing good to say about how she looks.  She definitely needs to hire some gays to do something, anything to save her from herself.

      Is it riding up and the slip is showing? I think if you are on the paler side and wearing open toe shoes a little color on the toes is a must, even if you are wearing clunky super hiddy shoes. Pat some powder on and get a blowout.

      Out.  I can usually find one thing I like about an outfit-an accessory, the make-up, something.  But there is nothing here.  It almost looks like she got out of the shower, pinned up her wet hair in preparation of doing her make-up, then someone came to tell her the event was starting and they needed to leave, she threw on the dress and grabbed some shoes.  And the shoes?  Need to be taken out w/ Rihanna’s Satan Slacks and burned, then buried in salt.

      Since it says this was in Sagaponack, I’m thinking she came straight from the beach. Looks like it, right? Dried off, reapplied the sunblock, pulled her hair back, and once she got to the event (which looks to be outdoors) ran into a bathroom and threw the dress over her head.

      I like the dress, but why does it have shape on the model and none on her?  Because the model is shown in action?

    • Ted Kane

      I think if the dress were in the same condition as it is on the model (i.e., not horribly wrinkled and without the hem malfunction), it would look ok on her.  The rest is just kind of “oh hell, it’s summer, and I’m hot and tired, and I’m just not even going to try; I’ll crawl out of bed and someone can through a dress on me in the cab.”  Ugh.

      On the model the waist (where the red part begins) begins below the boobs–not so much on Julianne, who got a not-so-lovely boob stripe.  It would have looked a thousand times better if it was tailored properly, and in a fabric that didn’t wrinkle when you think about looking at it.

      Seriously.  Is she going through some identity crisis?  Depression?  I have to say I love the dress, and think that camera angle and pose in the first shot just make it look awful on her.  My guess is she or the stylist asked Bottega to add that beige piece to make it a skosh longer for her.  But it looks really wonky.  

      But there’s no excuse for the “overslept” look she’s got going on with no makeup or hair.  It’s almost like I expect to hear her super congested and hoarse like she has a heinous summer cold.  And the PEDI!  Come ON.  Even I wore closed toe shoes yesterday in the dead of summer to go to the market because I had no pedi.  I think the dress could’ve been salvaged with great hair and makeup and shoes.

Miss Moore has been so off with her fashion choices I’m beginning to wonder if she is trying to send us a message. But what is it? “I don’t want to be a movie star anymore”, “I need major help but don’t know any gays”, “I’m completely fashion-blind and it’s time I stopped trying to hide my disability”?

      I love that dress in theory, but must admit you are right that her hem and hair brings the entire look down. Thin ladies can get away with unfitted dresses like this, especially in person (seeing it in motion I mean), I really think this could have been a WERQ with better choices. As for pedicures – I’m not big on nail color on toes, it draws too much attention to them.

      Is that an outdoor event?  I just noticed the grass in the background under the screen.  It could be so hot and humid that
      1.  She has sweated off all her makeup and her hair had to get off her face
      2.  The humidity has caused the frabric in the dress to shrivel up and that is why the underlayer is showing and its so wrinkled.
      3.  Its still an ungly dress, even on the model in air conditioning.

        I thought about the heat as a factor as well, but there are more artful ways to get your hair up, no? And I’m a very sweaty girl, so I can understand the shiny bit – except for the fact that I discovered matte moisturizer and it solved that problem for me.

      I am endlessly shocked at the number of women who live in the public eye and have no idea how to dress themselves.  This is just… I’ll go with awful. She’s so beautiful and so talented, and I love her so much. Why does she always looks so bad?

      She might have pulled this off if the dress were longer. It’s too short, thus the boxiness. Being a shift-loving woman with boobs (how’s that for an interest group?), I know how the make a shift presentable. You either need hose and a really great shoe or sleek boots, or it has to be longer than mid-thigh; in fact, covering the knees is the best way to go. A belt also helps.

      I agree it’s tasteless to show up all glammed-out for an anti-hunger event, but there’s no reason she couldn’t have worn a nice, simple dress with some shape to it, and a beautiful, understated shoe. And why is she hiding that fabulous hair? She’s just a mess from head to toe.

      OUT. On every level. For the love of god – that hair is the worst I’ve ever seen on her and she’s done some pretty ‘interesting’ things with her hair. The colors near her face totally wash her out and the fact that she seems to be sans make-up just makes it worse. I might like her ring…and points for freckled legs (so cute!) – but OUT.

      P.S. I do like that dress – it just isn’t her dress.

      It’s true. She’s so attractive, but she often looks like crap.
      I don’t even love the dress, honestly. The colorblocking is odd and it’s completely shapeless. Maybe it was “that time of the month” and she chose something big to hide the bloat. I guess every girl has been guilty of that from time-to-time, but she could have at least done something with her hair. I gotta say OUT.

      OUT. Of course. Her hair looks like she did it herself, in a hurry without a mirror. Others may disagree, but a very sheer stocking would have elevated this dress. Of course, not with those shoes. Trading out the shoes for almost anything short of athletic shoes or flip flops would have elevated the dress.

      The dress itself is cute in theory but in practice contributes to a completely unpolished look. (and I don’t care if she paints her toenails pretty colors or not, so that’s not a clever pun.)

      The orange overlay seems to have a mind of its own as the amount of beige showing at the bottom is different in the full-length shot and the one where Julianne’s holding a black clutch. Either way, it doesn’t look right with any beige showing at all. The dress only works on someone with no boobs so it can hang straight. Those shoes with the chunky ankle strap aren’t at all flattering. It’s an OUT without even going into her hair and make-up. 

    • Anonymous

      Is that the lining hanging out the front?  I feel like I’m in bizarro world. 

      I consider her such an elegant woman, and she sorely disappoints me when she goes out looking like this.  And that gorgeous mane of hair should ALWAYS be down, unless she’s wearing something with a busy neckline.  Sorry Julianne, OUT.

      i think, tho i dont know why, she had them reconstitute the hem that way.

      • Anonymous

        Right? And it’s a useful, practical life lesson: If the model looks dumpy, or several sizes bigger in it, don’t even bother. Don’t order it in two sizes or a different color. It will need to go back.

      She always looks dreadful!!! And her legs are another good case for hose, which would even out all of the freckles.

        You know, I’m glad you said what I was thinking.  I don’t want to be a freckle hater, because on faces, they’re adorable.  But they make her look awful bare-legged.

        • Anonymous

          I just wanted to reiterate that I am not a freckle-hater either. I love freckles on faces and her arms look fine. But almost all women have uneven or pale color on their legs. Please tell me one woman whose legs look good in a dress or gown bare-legged. OK, maybe JLo? Sarah JP’s legs look horrible, even Angelina Jolie’s legs don’t look great bare-legged. 

          I never understood the attraction of no hose, especially if you are dressed formally. Do brides go hoseless nowadays?? When I got married 24 years ago, I had stockings and garters. Ooh, lala!!!  

          If you are 16 and tan, then, yes. No hose. Everyone else should wear hose, as they make our legs look smooth and sexy.

      I love mod clothing styles but that dress looks horribly made.  It’s sloppy and it looks like the front of the dress shrunk and the lining is showing which happens sometimes when you accidentally wash vintage clothing.  If the dress didn’t look so terribly made this look would be really cute.

      It’s a cute dress on the model, I don’t know what happened. It seems to flow with the model’s body, but it just stands stiff on Julianne Moore. It almost looks like they remade it in a totally different fabric. Plus it is so wrinkly, I just can’t. Also, why is it so short?

      I could almost forgive the shoes, but the hair and well, lack of makeup, I cannot.

      The dress is fabulous but not on her. Julianne seems to have issues with how to dress her body shape and also make herself look age appropriate. The hair and makeup are undone and in the makeup’s case nonexistent. She looks like a woman going to a supper ball after the newborn breastfed. OUT

      she’s such a beautiful woman, why does she continue to make such awful choices?  it’s like she goes from one hideous extreme to another. her hair is so beautiful, i wish i could see it in all its natural glory.  and i don’t mean to snark on body issues, seriously her hands look like she is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. that might explain her lack of attention to hair, makeup, foot grooming etcetera.  when you’re in pain, you can let a lot of things slide.  but that doesn’t explain her bad fashion choices.

      I love Julianne Moore. I really do. But I have come to the conclusion that she has very ugly skin. Not so much the shiny face, cause she can fix that. But her legs in this shot and in previous ones just look awful. I’m not anti-freckles or anything (I have a ton of them myself) but her pale, speckled legs look scrawny and unhealthy. Feet, also. She looks like she has a serious bunion problem on her right foot.
