In or Out: Marisa Tomei in Preen

Posted on August 31, 2011

We’re really not sure what to think of this getup Marisa’s sporting. Walk with us.

Marisa Tomei in Preen

Marisa Tomei in PreenWe liked the similar blouse from the same collection that Nina wore two weeks ago on Project Runway. And we mostly like this; especially the bolder aspects of it; that pattern in the top and the bright orange skirt. We really don’t like that the back of the top is orange too. And as much as we like the stiffness and crispness in the skirt, the whole look is a bit bottom-heavy; even on the model. Not a lot of ladies can pull off looking bell-shaped. Also, we admit this is our fashion OCD kicking in, but we really wish a more interesting belt was chosen. Maybe a slightly contrasting metallic or a just a black with an interesting texture. If we were her imaginary stylists, we definitely would have either had the belt loops removed or covered by the belt. She would have to be standing ramrod straight in every single picture for them not to bulge out like that, just because of where they’re placed on her body. Making sure the little details all photograph well is a stylist’s job, after all.

In other news, we’re fine with the shoes, jewelry, makeup and hair, all of which are pretty low-key. It’s the Venice Film Festival and that calls for a certain Italian sort of earthy chic, which Marisa can do in her sleep. A bracelet might have been nice, though.

 

THIS IS THE PART WHERE YOU STATE YOUR OPINION, MINION!

 

IN! Che bella!

 

OUT! Mamma mia!

Charlie Hunnam’s salute to prep schools and lumberjacks is still gathering opinions as we speak. You should make yours known.

      What jewelry?

      Love her hair, love her, but I’m sorry, I really hate that orange at the bottom of the skirt. This outfit needed a “pop of color” at the belt, not mid-thigh. I just can’t. OUT.

    • Aly Light

      Eh, IN, although I think this Preen dress/blouse is kind of aging to both Marisa and Nina. The black is much better than Nina’s hideous Salmon, though, and cinching the waist does good things for the kind of boxy shape.

      Agree with your assessment, but would give her an IN.  I also think she could have gone with a heavier black sandal.

      It just looks so heavy, and the hair makes it look like she’s pretending to be Marlo Thomas in 1966.  OUT

      I like it, except for the back of the blouse. This is a good look for her. And she gets credit for not botching the whole thing with stupid shoes.I love how smart and grown up this line is, w/o being stuffy. None of this is normally my style, but I’ve got a serious jones for the top Nina was wearing.

      I like it – but yeah, decidedly bottom heavy, which could have been avoided if the top would have been a couple of inches shorter. Maybe the designers wanted to go for an unusal length, but it doesn’t quite work there.
      Umm, bracelets? might have drawn even more attention to the hip area, so I’m not sure of that.

          quiltrx… you are right. I was respond way to quickly. Almost like a nineteen year old.  Truth is, not only is she still the same size (and I’m not), her face shows a mature age, still beautiful and with no bumpy injections to make a chin or cheekbones. And her face looks amazingly like it could even crease when she frowns and show happy lines when she laughs. I stand totally corrected. But I still don’t like the dress. ;0)

      I liked it until I scrolled down.  And then I kind of shuddered and my first though was, “Good Lord, no.”  The whole thing is too unflattering and makes her (and the model) look larger than she actually is.

      IN. No doubt, no contest. (Hands-in-pockets is not a good idea, though). I think it’s neat, stylish and almost fresh. And that the sleeves do enough to balance out the bottom heaviness, at least on these thin little women.

      I don’t think I like the back being unrelieved bright orange (I assume it is?)  but it’s not enough for it to be out.

      looked better on nina, but thats not her fault. looked better on nina cos the silly added color was done, i believe, w/ the sleeves & not, for no reason other than it’s current, to the back. when designers stop altering their designs in inexplicable ways just cos it’s a la mode to do so, their designs will exponentially improve.

      I think she looks just right for a photocall (the only reason I know what that is, is from having read T Lo every day for years).  Agree that a bracelet *might* have been nice but that textured patterned top is the point of the outfit so you don’t want to risk looking like you overdid it, si?  Now that I now know the back of the top is orange takes my opinion of it down a notch or two (because wouldn’t that top look nice with another brightly colored skirt, and now you can’t *raspberry*).

      But she’s IN.

      I like the look, although it could be improved upon.  I think it would be better if the skirt were a tad shorter and the back of the shirt was black.  But, still an IN.

      I say IN, though not a very enthusiastic In.  There’s something very interesting about the contrast between that top and the orange skirt.  I’m not sure it’s quite her outfit, but she still looks good.  Hair and makeup do look like she just got out of bed, but she actually looks very attractive like that.

      Orange is my favorite color; it makes me happy. But I don’t like it with that top–it’s as if they are speaking two different languages.

      I’ll vote In, but by a small margin. I like the overall effect of the outfit, and I prefer this blouse to the one Nina wore on PR. This looks less like 70s vest to me. I think the orange back might be a deal breaker, but I can’t see it, so I’ll ignore it.

      I think the fact that I like her so much might be coloring my vote.

      Well.  I like the shoes.  Is that good enough?

      I really, really hate the collection that this comes from.  Those tops look heavy and hot, the patterns look like they’re made of cheap Christmas garlands and for some reason they remind me of things my mother used to buy me that I couldn’t bring myself to wear unless she was around.  The fact that the back is orange is bad.  Marissa looks as good as one could in this thing, but that’s just not enough.

      But I do like the shoes.

      I have to say OUT. The back in orange is a definite minus. I like the skirt’s structure, the diagonal slit in front is nice, but it being in that bright orange is not going to look good on 97% of women at all. Perhaps if the skirt were black with trim in orangey-red, or if the skirt were some other great pattern in black, silver, and orangey-red.

      I really dislike the orange back on the top…I don’t understand why the designer thought it would be attractive.  When Nina wore the similar look, I assumed it was an orange blouse under the black patterned vest…apparently not.  I liked Nina’s more…but not by much.

      IN!  I think she looks cute as a bug’s ear.  Now, I wanted to set her down in a make-up chair and put some color on her face, because she looks very washed out.  As you say, a bracelet would have been nice, and maybe larger earrings.  But I like the outfit itself and the way she wears.  Do I need to duck when I confess I like the idea that it has pockets and that she’s not afraid to stuff her hands in said pockets?  Do wish she weren’t standing in front of a pink background in an orange skirt.  Will pretend her stylists didn’t know that was going to happen.  But overall, it’s an IN from me.

      Around here the highway repairmen standing out in traffic painting dotted lines wear that color orange. Maybe on a special day they could add some glitter to a black vest and pretend to be fashionable.

      I think the dress is too big for her.  In one of the photos, you can see the back fabric bunched up like there’s too much there.  Also, the skirt length is too long; I think it should hit just at the knee, not just below.  If it were better tailored for her, this would be more of a win.

      outOUTout.  way too halloween for me.  orange and black with silver glitter?  no.  and the shape of the skirt is like the proverbial barn door.  on the runway model, it looks like it was tailored in at the hemline, a much more flattering line.  but did anyone else notice that she seems to be channeling nina’s facial expressions?  check out photo #4.

      I’m willing to call this an ‘IN’. Nice colors on her, great beading, and excellent deployment of the T-strap sandals. Hair and makeup could’ve been bumped up a notch, and you’re right, a bracelet would be great, but it’s still an fun and interesting look on its own and on her.

      skirt flares too wide at bottom for its color to be acceptable, especially in the way it contrasts with the top.  would love a more narrow skirt in a darker tone, or a lighter top with wider shoulders.  Can’t decide.  Making me think, which means…. OUT

      Out.  I can’t put my finger on why, but the overall look isn’t flattering.  It just looks wrong.  I think the mass of orange is too large.  It doesn’t look much better on the model either, so its the clothes themselves that don’t work.

      Well, I like this better than that fugly top by Preen Nina wore, that was horrid and unflattering with orange crepe “Grandmother at bridge” sleeves.  i like the shorter sleeves here and I like it belted a bit better.  But really, this bulky fabric is going to be an issue on just about anyone.  I love the fabric, just not as a top.  Or probably a skirt either.  Maybe a coat?  Or chair upholstery?
