In or Out: Emily Blunt in Christian Cota

Posted on September 11, 2011

Darlings, we’ve been dashing from Fashion Week event to Fashion Week event, indulging in a little glamour because for the other 50 weeks out of the year, we’re sitting at our desks in boxer shorts with cats on our lap 15 hours out of the day. That’s fabulous for us, but you poor dears are going without a chance to express your bitchy opinions about celebrities on the red carpet and that’s just wrong. A Bitter Kitten needs a chance to be bitchy like a baby needs a tit in its mouth, so let’s get to it.

Emily Blunt in Christian CotaEmily Blunt attends Dinner and After-Party for “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” hosted by BlackBerry in Toronto in a mountaineer embroidered jumpsuit by Christian Cota.

Ohhhhhh, Sweetie. This is SO not the look for you. And it pains us to say that because we adore her and think she can wear practically anything. It looks kind of cool on the model on the runway; a slightly quirky look with some disco-fabulous undertones. We dig the top. But those pants are not a girl’s best friend. Or at least, they’re not this girl’s best friend. It’s all hippy and crotchy on her  – and what gal wants that? In fact, whatever sleekness the look had on the runway is all but gone here, leaving her looking just a little frumpy, and that would be the very last word we’d normally use to describe Emily Blunt. It’s not just that the pants aren’t flattering; it’s the way the top divides her body into sections. Jumpsuits are rarely a good idea, but one that looks like glittery overalls is going to be tough for any gal to pull off, no matter how fabulous she is.

The bracelet and clutch are fine, from what we can see of them. We’d love to see what kind of shoes she paired with this, but it looks like the pants might be covering them, which is a sin all its own. Hair and makeup are fine, even if she could have used a little blotting to get the shine off. We don’t lovelovelove the look in any way, but if the pants were a little more flattering, we’d be okay with it, but as it is, we have to say she should have set this look free for some other girl.

 

Vote Now!
IN! I just can’t get enough of this girl’s crotch!

OUT! T Lo, you said “Glittery overalls.” Do you really need to ask the question?

In (very old) Minion Opinion news, Sarah Jessica Parker’s crayola couture got an OUT and Marion Cotillard’s “Widow of the Swiss Alps” look got an IN.

    If she were built like the model on the runway and the jumpsuit (I just threw up in my mouth a little even typing that) hung on her the way it hangs on the model it would be a “meh, okay.”  But she’s not and it’s not.  Plus, along with needing to be blotted, she’s got too much crap smeared around her eyes.  It’s not a full-on Momsen eye incident, but it’s not pretty, either.  It’s all so very OUT!

      The top flaps off her body too big around the armholes, which makes her breasts look both lumpy and saggy.

      Don’t get me started on the pants.

      She’s a beauty: it takes a powerful bad outfit to fuck up her figure like that.

    I’ve never seen a garment capable of giving butt-crack and cameltoe simultaneously. The bodice is just weird, blocky and totally unflattering. The whole garment is just ill-fitting and unfortunate on poor Emily.

    Totally wrong headed in every respect.  Like a lot of people including the estimable TLo, I adore Emily, but this is all kindsa way wrong.  All the proportions on the top are wrong for you Emily.  And it pains me to have to say so, sine you can rock the edgy with the best of them.  And satin pants half always ends up looking crappy when you have had to sit down.  That is a standing only outfit.

    The crotch aspect is tragic, but I think that there is another major problem. The straps have been shortened too much, meaning that what was drapey and dramatic on the model looks really awkward on Emily. It’s a shame. If the straps were the right length and this was a dress instead of a jumper, I think it would have looked fabulous. But it is not fabulous.

    At the gym today there was, I am not lying, an ad on one of the t.v.s for a garment that looked like waistless mechanics’ overalls made out of those backwards-blankets-with arms (Snuggies?) sold on t.v. in recent years. With the matching fuzzy socks they looked like exceptionally baggy Dr. Dentons. (with zippers, yes, and various flaps so you can get to your wallet or go to the bathroom.)

    The point being that this is kinda like the evening dress version of one of those. Though even more like a marching band uniform – the part that goes over the t-shirt & under the jacket- as scottyf so astutely pointed out 100+ comments ago.
