In or Out: Selma Blair in Roland Mouret

Posted on September 06, 2011

Darlings, what do we all think of this look from Selma?

On the one hand, it’s a fabulous color and it has an interesting drape in the bodice. On the other hand, it’s a bit tight across her hips, those sleeves keep making us think she’s got a cardigan draped across her shoulders, and that interesting drape is looking more and more like a pile of laundry the longer we look at it. Also, while we’re happy to see she didn’t wear the red carpet-standard Silly Putty pumps, we fear these beigey-grey substitutes herald the next big shoe color choice for stylists. In other words, we have a feeling we’re going to see a LOT more of this non-color on red carpet footwear in the coming months. Still, they’re probably the right shoe for the dress. Hair’s just okay; makeup is ditto, and the jewelry is appropriately played down because bling wouldn’t work with a look like this. We’re kind of happy to turn the opinionating over to the Bitter Kittens, because we’re not entirely sure if we love this or not. We’ll say this: it’s a great color for the RC. No matter the dress, that’s a color that turns heads and looks good in pictures.

Vote Now!
IN! Pretty and eyecatching!

OUT! SO not your dress, girl.

 

In previous Bitter Kitten news, the consensus on Madonna’s butterfly effect gown was IN (although many Kittens voted on her plastic surgery instead of her dress).

          However, I wouldn’t feel comfortable in the board room all that plus the mini-bat cape shoulders.

          The color, yes, in something not skin tight at the tummy, with all that folderol lost.

      Considering she had a baby 6 weeks ago, she looks amazing.  I was barely able to hold my head up much less get dressed.  I like the color on her, it could have used a skosh more fabric.  After all that, I say she’s an IN, just because.

        I don’t like the neckline but given the woman just had a baby and is not afraid to show that it doesn’t all disappear in 6 weeks!  She is an IN!

        She just had a baby? Automatic IN, because she looks pretty damn great. Nothing is going to cover the residual baby weight at this point, other than a caftan. And that would just be sad.

        Hate the shoe color though.

      Messy. All around a bad choice. The color is great, but not perfect for her skin tone. The hair and makeup are low key. The style of the dress is sloppy, wrinkled, and can’t even make the curveless model look good. It’s a terrible dress for Blair who has curves. Even if she were walking down the street this would be a bad idea. On the red carpet? OUT

      The dress looks too bunch-y on her…like it wasn’t tailored properly. It looks like a half-assed attempt at old Hollywood glamour with the hair. So it’s OUT.

      Lukewarm In. I like the kind of retro vibe it has and I actually think the sleeves are kind of pretty. But the draping looks messy and I really hate that shade of green, actually most shades of green, when it comes to clothing. I like the shoes on the model much, much more than the cement colored ones she’s wearing. Gee, I’ve almost talked myself into an OUT. 

    • Anonymous

      I like the dress (draping and all), but there is definitely a fit issue. Because of that, she’s OUT.

    • http://twitter.com/lulu136 lulu

      The dress looks better on the stick person on the runway than the human actress. It is interesting though, but not for someone with an actual curve in her body. Shoes: like the stick person’s t-strap and I think a leopard version of that shoe would have been amazing for SBla. Just one gal’s opinion. ;)

      Out.  Its a good color on her, but the fit on the dress is a mess. That is more a comment on the dress itself.  I think it would fit strangely on anyone.  But since she is the one wearing it, she is out.

      I dislike hospital scrub green. The shoes are boring. And the top of the dress looks like an amateur mess. She’s very pretty, but this is not her dress. It needs a longer torso as on the runway model.

      I actually appreciate they way her hips fill it out a bit more; as opposed to the kind of…slackness on the model?  And the non colour shoes work for me.  In.

    • Anonymous

      I must be so old, but I think the dress looks like shit! Any interesting draping in the bodice – which basically drapes vertically on the model has been ruined by how tightly it is pulling across her boobs. This is a look that is not supposed to be skin – tight. It is a dress that fashion experts would advise someone with NO boobs, like D Messing to wear, not a new mom, no matter how good she looks. I will give her bonus point, though, for not cutting it ti micro mini proportions for a RC. So OUT

    • Adella Thompson

      Adore the color. Looking at the photo of the runway, I think this dress was truly designed for the emaciated and the drape gets confused on women with any kind of figure. On the model, the drape looks breezy and light and adds figure where there likely isn’t. On her, it looks more busy and a bit sloppier. But even still, I love the color with her hair and her minimalist makeup and jewelry works for me enough that it’s a kind of squeak by IN for me. 

    • Anonymous

      I like the dress on the taller, super slender model but it doesn’t translate well to a pretty albeit real woman’s body.  Selma is so pretty and I do love the color, I just don’t think the cut across the midsection combined with the unstructred top is doing her any favors.  I agree with earlier poster that a leopard strappy shoe with this would have been great.  And a little sexy.

    • margaret meyers

      Those shoes are what the French call English grey, a grey with a bit of taupe blended in.  The French found this warm grey very attractive with gold on walls, and they felt it was nice with European flesh tones. 
      The dress is a little tight, but it’s showing off what a nice, healthy-looking body she has just 6 weeks after giving birth.  In the past she has sometimes been too thin, and I really like how she looks here.  IN!

    • Anonymous

      Wrinkled and messy and OUT! The color is OK, though.

    • Anonymous

      It is a good color–but it’s also a common color for surgical scrubs, so an unbroken swath of it looks vaguely medical. And while the top of the dress on the runway model looks beautifully drapey, on Selma it looks kind of horribly bunched and wrinkled. I just don’t think this is the dress for her.

      Totally hate the shoes. And her hair…well, it’s humid in Venice, so maybe she gets a pass on that.

      Still, overall, it’s an out.

        She looks fabulous since she just had a baby six weeks ago (really? at six weeks, I still looked like I was pregnant, and I was as thin as she was in those days!), but the dress is an OUT.  Not a flattering style at all on her.  The wrinkled bodice and peculiar sleeves are very unfortunate, even though I agree with you guys that the color is great.   And I really hate the shoe color.  Yuck.

      Begrudgingly an IN from me. My main issues are the shade of green (makes her look sallow) and the sleeves are too long. Would’ve worked better if she modified them…they’re supposed to be shorter on the model, on her they’re down to her elbows.

      The color is the only thing I like. Oh, and the shoes aren’t that bad. I kind of like the grey. I think the dress would work better if she had only gone up one size. As it is, it just isn’t draping right, giving it a bunched up look on the bodice and a too tight look for the skirt. Going with OUT on this one.

      Can I have an OUN or an INT? :D Or just the little white line space between the IN and OUT?

      • Anonymous

        Yes. This. I think it could have been IN if her hair had been up. Down it just adds confusion to the messy/WIP look of the bodice. Going up a size wouldn’t have hurt anyone’s feelings and would have given the room to swing a little.
        Sorry honey, so close, but OUT.

      I love the color, but I think you need to be taller (like the runway model) to show off the gathers. It just looks messy on her, not intentional. And I dislike those shoes even more than the Silly Putty shoes. Grey always looks so cold to me.

      However, folks say she just had a baby, so she gets an IN just for taking a shower and showing up.

    • Anonymous

      Out. Love the dress on the model – looks ’30s-ish, no? But on her, this dress is too small overall – it looks tight across the shoulders, in the armpits, through the bodice, hips and all of that is shortening the dress as well. Mama looks great, just needed to go up a size, that’s all.

      She is so pretty, but it’s an OUT (maybe an uncapitalized out instead).  Look at the draping on top on the model – it’s draping more vertically.  It’s tighter on Selma and the draping has become more horizontal making her look wider across the chest than she probably is (even with new baby boobs).

      My first reaction on the shoes was exactly the same– NO SILLY PUTTY!!! But if gray is the next big non-color thing, doesn’t she get credit for being ahead of the curve? Anyway, she looks adorable. The bodice is a right mess, but I don’t think anyone could pull that off. So it’s not a case of “not your dress, honey” because it’s nobody’s dress really. I wish she’d put a big belt on and covered up those little points at the waist. She would be in for sure.
      But as is…. I just can’t decide.

      Hmmmm, I can see why this is a tough call. I like it better on the model. The tightness of the dress on Blair takes away everything interesting about the dress.

      I think if it fit her properly, it would be fabulous. Unfortunately, though, it doesn’t so I have to vote OUT.

      OUT, but just barely. Those sleeves just kill it.  If there were little cap sleeves instead, it would be so much better. Love the color though.

      OUT. It’s a beautiful color, but much shorter and with a completely different drape than on the runway, all to its detriment. In other words, it just ain’t working on Selma Blair.

    • vmcdanie

      IN.

      Partly because I love Selma Blair tho. I love the color on her and she looks good here. The dress has been altered a little strangely-I prefer the runway version and it’s a bit too tight across the stomach. The sleeves are weird and distracting; I want to chop them off. I may regret saying this one day if I see this color on 5000 more red carpets but I do like the shoes (although can we please end this rounded-toe fad? It’s so Dr. Seuss.)

      as is….OUT. Girl needs to go up a size so it drapes better instead of pulling. Those shoes are BORING and a strong cuff bracelet and earrings would’ve made this dress red carpet ready.

      Her look lost the romantic drape of the skirt in the runaway version. Sad. Hemlines matter, ladies and if you’re going to do yours up neat and pin straight with this dress, you’re doomed to lose some of its panache.

      That dress has to be one of my least favorite colors – whatever color that actually IS – although it does work for her.  However, she probably should have gone up a size.  It’s kind of lost the “fashion” feel, the way it binds her.  It’s not really BAD, but I’d have a hard time saying it looks great; more out than in, so out, as opposed to OUT!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZHWCV5QUMLSECZBSVVFDZFSN5U Kenta S

      I can say that the color’s great. Otherwise, the fit on this dress is all over the place: those sleeves are limp and seriously unflattering, the drape to the bodice is very messy (as you can tell from the runway, that drape wasn’t prepared for Selma’s new-mommy mammaries, and the skirt’s tight across the hips. She looks great up close, though (except for those sleeves), so I can’t blame her for being unaware of the issues. The so-very-light grey pumps look pretty cheap to me, and I don’t especially like them paired with this dress. All in all, it feels like a Pat Field costume for Charlotte York for Easter Sunday mass.

      And yet, I like it. IN.

      I just don’t like the dress: the color, the drapey-pinned up top looks like fabric got caught in the sewing machine by accident.  And yes, it’s a little tight across the hips so she should have gotten it fitted.  If that mid-grey plain pump is the next trend in RC shoes, it’s a very sad thing.  And I like grey.

      Out.  But I can’t get excited about it.

      Oh, ick. The bodice is as appealing as an unmade bed. The hips make her look preggers.

      Her stylist should be shot for letting her out of the bathroom with this look.  Shall we take up a collection, Bitter Kittens, and send this poor celebrity one of those $10 full-length mirrors?

      OUT. This dress was created for a flat-chested, stick-thin model, who looks fabulous in it. Selma’s curves throw the proportions and the interesting draping totally off. Not a fan of this shade of green. But congrats to Selma on her body 6 weeks after giving birth. It’s just not your dress, honey.

    • Julian Betkowski

      The draping on the model is much more striking than it is on Selma, where it looks a bit … strained. Still, for a post-pregnancy outfit, she looks great, and the length of the skirt really suits for proportions.

      OUT. Structurally, it’s a completely different dress on Selma and I much prefer the dress on the model.

      Out, only because it’s the wrong size.
      P.S.  I think it’s 100% legitimate to vote based on plastic surgery, since that’s something that she’s deliberately done, presumably so that she’ll look younger, prettier, or something when she’s on the red carpet.  If it were the face nature gave her, and not surgically enhanced, that would be a different story.

      The dress is  prettier on the model who has no hips, no tummy and no boobs.

      Borderline, but OUT.  Those photos are a textbook illustration of why designers will always like models who are rail thin and walk with attitude. No ridiculous body mass to interfere with the drape of the dress, and too much attitude for the viewer to wonder “hmm, what happens with those sleeves when she raises her arms?”

      The sleeves, neckline and bodice have such a nice, relaxed flow and drape on the model…tight, pulled and binding on Selma.  The interesting elements of the dress are lost and her tummy is, unfortunately, accentuated. 

      The shoe color doesn’t work for me either.

      She looks happy and pretty though.

      Thank goodness for the minions. I took one look at her and said, ‘she’s rated pg.’

      I read down a bit and see that she is post-partum and therefore give her a big ‘werq’ for 1. leaving the house and 2. dressing her new body and 3. glowing. Way to pull it off Selma – your body will look as different in 6 more weeks as it did 6 weeks ago.

      I don’t know what you’re thinking, saying it’s an interesting drape on the bodice.  It’s only interesting in the way you say “That’s… interesting” when you don’t want to insult someone to their face.  Hate.

      Although, I do like the sleeves, and when you look at her and not her dress, the torture blends to one solid colormass.  And that works well.

      Wow, my first thought was, “that’s exactly the color of the scrubs I wear every day in the O.R.,” my second thought was, “Gee, I wish they looked at least a little as stylish as this dress does,” and my third thought was, “maybe that should be the next PR challenge: make hospital scrubs look good.” 

      Then I looked some more and my fourth thought was, “If one of the PR designers did THIS with hospital scrub material I bet none of the judges would like it.”  It may be an interesting color for the runway, but it has too many miserable associations for me to like it, either.  So I say, OUT.

      I like the dress and I love the color, like everyone else here.  I think the problems lie in styling…the shoes are bo-RING! and they make her feet look huge.  The non-style in her hair is not working…she should have pulled it back or up just a bit, and her makeup doesn’t really hide the “I just had a baby” tiredness…but that part isn’t necessarily her fault, so we’ll forgive her.  Also, it is true that she should have just bought a size larger.  I know that the runway models have no curves or anything, but just look at the difference in fit between her and the model.  She should have tried to meet the runway look somewhere in the middle.
