In or Out: Dianna Agron in Madewell

Posted on September 23, 2011

Dianna Agron frustrates us.

Don’t worry, we’re not losing any sleep over it or anything. It’s just that she’s such a pretty girl and she’s riding a fame-wave right now that could be very brief if she doesn’t play it just right. Her tendency to wear looks that are too mature or too demure by half don’t really serve her that well at this moment in time. We’re not suggesting she should dress slutty or even in the attention-getting manner of her co-star Lea Michelle, but almost every time we see her on the red carpet we think, “Sweetie, you just don’t get it.

But we have to say, this seems like a decent compromise, all things considered. She clearly doesn’t like to wear looks that are too showy or sexy and that’s fine. Our problem with her has always been her tendency to equate demure with boring or even frumpy. Here’s a dress that keeps her covered up, but it looks fresh and modern on her. We think a more saturated color would work much better on her, but this isn’t a film premiere or an awards show, so the low-key aspect of it is fine (if a little disappointing). And yes, the shoes are too matchy, but they sure are cute shoes, aren’t they? And we HATE T-straps normally.

IN! Demure, stylish, and cute!

OUT! There’s a villa, a sea captain, and seven brats with your name on them, Dianna.

Both Zoe Saldana and Rose Byrne received loud OUTs for (respectively) the vintage tablecloth dress and the Frankendress.
