In or Out: Emma Roberts in Miu Miu

Posted on October 21, 2011

Every once in a while, we take the voting as to the INness or OUTness of a particular look out of the hands of our minions. There are times when a couple of bitchy gay bloggers just have to take a stand on the important things.

 

Emma Roberts in Miu MiuEmma Roberts attends the Brazilian Style celebration at the Swarovski Crystallized Concept Store in New York City in a Miu Miu dress.

Emma Roberts, you are OUT.

There. We said it.

She looks like a roll of 20-year-old Christmas wrapping paper you find in the attic. That is simply not a color that works well as a shimmering metallic; not with her coloring. The high waist is unflattering on her and that flimsy sheer collar irritates us. Hate it. Hate it all.

Minions are free to disagree but we won’t pay attention to you.

Oh, calm down, we’ll have a couple things for you to vote on later. Yes, we’re cranky after last night’s Project Runway.

      I wish she (or her people) would dress with her coloring in mind. This isn’t the first time she’s chosen the very wrong tones for her fantastic porcelain skin. She needs to see how ERW handles it, they have similar coloring.

      • Anonymous

        YES, she needs Evan Rachel Wood’s people! They do have very similar coloring but I’m pretty sure Emma Roberts is much younger with a more Taylor Swift-ish taste level.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDI2DLE7DE3YPW2ONIHBWOVHMA ecallaw

          I obviously could me wrong, but I have a different impression of her.  I think she would be offended by the Taylor Swift comparison, because I think she considers herself a bit edgy and fashion forward.

    • Anonymous

      The camera angle is giving her a giant head and teeny little bird legs, and the outfit is awful.  She should go home and change.

      • Anonymous

        True, that. I was wondering if she could possibly be so nonproportional and whether it was another fault of the stupid dress.

      oh no! i think she is totally in! i actually love this with her coloring. 

      • Anonymous

        I agree with you on the colouring, I actually think it’s really nice on her. I wish the dress was tighter at the waist though, the proportions are all off.

    • Sara__B

      Her proportions are all off. The shiny loose top paired with the heavy black tights make her legs look especially thin and bony. And the color is just awful on her. This over-sized baby doll top/dress might work on one of the young teens walking the red carpet these days, but it is utterly OUT on Emma.

      Nannypoo, I totally agree with you. The proportions on that ensemble are hideous.

      EW. WHAT IS THIS SHITTERY. EW. Why is she wearing Poliana’s Christmas babydoll? On what planet is that considered fashionable? AWAY WITH YOU.

    • http://twitter.com/anacedillo Ana Cedillo

      what are you talking about??? sorry TLO love you guys and all and i am def a minion butttt lately i have not been agreeing at all with you. Little 20 year old (or younger?) Emma Roberts cant wear a cutesy collar but Evan Rachel Wood can? That dress on Evan Rachel Wood did not look, the mod nun look was just a bit juvinille or something like that. But the color looks great on her, the color looks soooo pretty shimmering, i want it bad. The one thing I will agree on is that the waist fits her weirdly for sure. Nonetheless, still a die hard minion and I appreciate your bitchiness :)

      • Sobaika Mirza

        The collar on this looks cheap, I don’t think the same can be said about ERW. And she wasn’t wearing glittery cheap bronze oddly fit thing that clashes with her coloring. Something about the way it offsets her hair and skin tone…

      • Anonymous

        T Lo definitely referenced the sheer, flimsy collar. It does help make the dress look cheap and/or home sewn. Cool that you like it. That’s what the comments section is for. All for bitchiness and bitchiness for all!  ;-)

        • Anonymous

          My first thought was that she made that thing in Home Ec class – do they even have such a thing any more?  Fabric off the remnant table.  It’s just embarrassing.  So she’s so young and pretty and has such style potential.  This kind of dressing is wrong on a lot of levels.  She should be able to nail it – I can’t imagine that a girl with so much going on should be difficult to dress. 

      • Anonymous

        Fashion is subjective, that’s why there are so many choices and why we are all here to be judgemental minions. This dress looks cheap, ERWs dress didn’t. Emma is also wearing tights with open toe platform shoes. I can’t get behind that for red carpet. This dress is also way too short and the weird not quite empire not quite babydoll waist is what makes it look juvenile to me, much more than the collar.

    • Anonymous

      Where to begin? Too short, too wide, too high-waisted, too shiny, and gym hair. Ugh.

      I like the coloring, but I think that the dress looks homemade. And not in a good way (I sew)

    • MilaXX

      I honestly do not get the need that so many have to be blonde. Sure some folks dye their hair blonde and look okay, but most of them look awful. Emma Roberts is one of them. She would look so much better with a warm chestnut brown or even as a red head like her aunt. Sadly bad hair color is the least of her problems. Girlfriend cannot dress to save her life. This dress is fugly and she looks a mess in it. Moreover it looks more like a shirt than a dress.

      So out.  Horrible color.  The dress looks like a child’s Christmas dress that is too small and doesn’t fit right, but her mother is trying to get one more wearing out of it.

      My uncle owned a packaging material company in the 40s, 50s and 60s. Their big product was a synthetic satin called Facil Fab that was used, most notably, to wrap the Christmas editions of Seagram’s VO (shout out if you remember the red  & white faux satin package with a diagonal red ribbon and a plastic crest). I’d love to ask Emma’s designer where she found vintage Facil Fab. I thought my mom threw out the last rolls when she sold her house in 2007. 

      In other words, TACKKKKKY! And it doesn’t fit, either. OUT OUT OUT

      I wish she hadn’t worn the black tights. The shoes look like they have a potential to be fab but I can’t see them.

      It looks like a 70s maternity Christmas dress… on a girl who was clearly not around for the 70s. Or much of the 80s for that matter. 

      • Anonymous

        No, no.  You really don’t want to take the tights away from this child.  She’s got terrible legs, so think and bony and mottled and pale.  Her knees look like you could hack a tree down with those sharp little bones.  Tights are actually her friend.  She just needs a dress that fits and would look well with the tights.

        I actually love that copper color.  It’s just not utilized well here.  And I would definitely wrap all my Christmas presents in that fabric if I could find it.

        I’m not quite sure why we keep having to look at this child.  She’s not impressive at all, on any front.

      If Michael Kors was judging this look, he’d say, “I mean… she just looks like a DISCO PUMPKIN!”

    • http://onionjam.tumblr.com SkipperJane

      I actually rather like the fabric and the idea of the collar and full skirt, but the waist needs to be lower, the collar more substantial, and you are correct that this dress is not suited to her coloring.

      And since I’ve pretty much re-designed the dress, I’d concur with the OUT.

      Good god. The proportions: her shoulders, her legs, the way the awful little neckline makes her head look enormous and gaunt. This outfit catapults her straight into Uncanny Valley territory.

      I like the dress itself. It might look better one someone with a little more meat on their bones (this is not a criticism of her being too skinny, it’s just too big on her). I don’t like the jewelry paired with it at all. I’m not sure what kind of jewelry would look good…maybe rose-gold?

      You get no disagreement from me on this one. This is an anti-WERQ. It’s a QREW.

      A metallic copper can work if it’s (a) a better quality fabric, (b) part of a red-carpet look, not a home-made dress for an eight year old, and (c) worn by someone whose skin doesn’t clash with it.

      This is a very orangey copper. And that is an awful collar. (I hate collars in general, but you guys are right–the flimsy sheerness is an added layer of craptastica.)

      Can’t disagree. It’s oddly & awkwardly proportioned, and I think the tights & black shoes are too heavy for it – and that’s saying a lot when the item they’re out balancing is shiny and a rich dark copper, with a black collar.

      OTOH, I really, really, like that color (shiny though it be) and understand she may have allowed wishful thinking to take over. But Ms. Emma, do better! We who cannot claim professional stylists as a legitimate business expense may wear colors that wash us out and don’t work with our hair because our love for the color overwhelms our judgement. Those with stylists, or at least vaguely-defined assistants/shoppers/’help’ who understand their coloring & body type are supposed to find *good* ones, pay them what it takes and then pay attention to what they say!
