In or Out: Olivia Wilde in J. Mendel

Posted on October 27, 2011

We want to offer positive support to Olivia here, because we think she made a bold choice and we’re all about the bold choices.

 

Olivia Wilde in J. MendelOlivia Wilde attends the Glamour Reel Moments 2011 – held at the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles in a J. Mendel dress paired with Brian Atwood shoes.

Olivia Wilde in J. Mendel

She has a tendency to pick these very fashion-y kind of dresses; fierce and head-turning looks that suit her own looks. And for the most part, this has worked quite well for her. But we really dig the loose, laid-back chicness of this dress. It’s got just enough visual interest to keep it from being boring, but it doesn’t come anywhere close to looking overdone (like some of her RC looks sometimes do). The sort of loose hair and underplayed makeup really work with the look. It’s the accessories that fail.

We might have forgiven the gold earrings (although chunky stone jewelry would have been a more suitable choice, we think), and the nondescript clutch, but HONEY. The drag queen shoes are a total WTF. We like a good juxtaposition and loathe when people do the expected thing, but a more natural-looking shoe is really what was called for here. We might even have supported a bronzey sort of metallic or neutral with some interest to it. You had a chance to work some earth-mother chicness here and you blew it on a pair of Barbie shoes.

IN! Every outfit needs a touch of Barbie!

OUT! Hippy on the top; hooker on the bottom!

Voting on Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s “First day of the school year” outfit is still open, darlings.

    I don’t know. . . 
    I like the dress (but it makes more sense the way the models’ hair is styled), hate the shoes. 

    • Anonymous

      My thoughts exactly.It works so much better with the edgy hair.

  • Sobaika Mirza

    IN. She looks fabulous overall and I get that the shoe is subjective, but I’d kill to have those in my Barbie Dream Closet.

  • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

    I could have gotten behind the shoes in red — a classic color.  But that bright pink is just fugly.

    I’ll have to get back to you on the in/out of it all though…

    • Sobaika Mirza

      Agreed that red would have been a better choice.

    • Anonymous

      I think a warm, mid tone or dark green or blue (or blue-green!) would have been a pretty contrast while still looking cohesive. Red would have been nice too (red + navy = love), but I think the soft drapey dress lends itself better to more somber colors.

      Even though I hate fuschia on principle, I would have been okay with the shoe if this was a black and pure white dress. But fuschia is a cool tone and that pale beigy-pink panel is a warm tone, and, in this case, the twain should not have met. A pop of color, fine. Just not this color.

    The rest of her looks so good that I can almost forgive the pink clodhoppers. IN, in spite of the awful shoes.

    Can I give a big IN for the dress but a big ol’ OUT for the shoes? It pretty much ruins the look for me.

  • jaibee

    disagree – IN! the shoe provides an unexpected pop – even if it is pink satin – and should be praised lest all stars stick to silly putty shoes in future for fear of criticism!

    I think she was trying to pick up on the pinkish hues on the dress and thought the bold shoe choice would work…not so much though.

    It’s a great gown and overall she looks very pretty, aside from the pink elephants in the room.

      I agree.  I think the problem is that the dress is warm-toned, while the shoes are a really cool pink color.

  • Kate Pearce

    Um no, that dress looks really badly finished close up.

      I agree with Kate.   I’m sick of unfinished hems.  Between that and the boxy natuure of the dress it looks like my 8th grade Home Ec project.

    A pair of Barbie shoes that don’t remotely fit! Man, that’s one place where I definitely do not envy celebrities– nobody is ever forcing me to wear shoes that are two sizes too large for me.

    I really feel like the shoes leave the dress looking washed out and dull. Yeah, OUT.

  • http://www.facebook.com/CatherineKatz Catherine Katz

    Maybe her other shoes were misplaced or damaged or something (?!?) by the stylist and she was left with these – which obviously went with the 2nd choice dress.

    Love the dress.  Even with the pink piggy feet, I think she looks great – in.

    Going with In.  I agree different shoes were needed, but I don’t mind the jewelry or even the clutch so much.  The dress is great and the shoes aren’t enough to push it to Out.

    Hmm…shoes in the turquoise of the fringe on her right might have worked.

    Agreed. I love that dress on her, but those shoes are a nightmare.
    On the other hand, when you’ve been blessed with a face like that, who cares.

    I’m calling it an IN, because she still looks stunning in spite of those ugly things on her feet.

    Yes, the shoes are all wrong, but that’s not enough to ruin the whole look.  IN!

    I think a blue or teal shoe would have worked had she wanted to work the pop of color. The dress itself, I like. Agreed that chunky stone jewelry would have been a terrific choice. Those fuschia pumps are horrid, and incongruous with the rest of the look.

    I’m really trying to like it but….have to say out.

    Gorgeous face, gorgeous dress, she’s smiling – but those shoes give this an automatic out. Contrast is one thing, but these are too random to work. It’s a shame.

    She could have picked up that teensy tiny bit of turquoise in the hem and rocked that as a shoe or accessory. Not matchy at all because it’s so subtle.

    Still. 90% fab is still an IN.

  • Anonymous

    I’m going to go waaaay outside my comfort zone and give this an IN precisely because she used a bright pink shoe here (and yes, I threw up in my mouth just a bit while typing that.)  This dress is begging for a pop of color in the shoe and while I’d rather have seen just about any other bright color shoe here, I’ll take the pink and be glad for it.  I’m just thankful that she didn’t wear a pair of those hideous putty shoes so I don’t have to poke my eyes out from boredom.  Pink it is and she’s IN!

    I give it an IN.  I love the dress and how she’s wearing it.  I hate the shoes but mainly because it’s not her size…..WHY do they do that?   And well, actually the colour and the chunky style of the shoe isn’t working for me either.  So crap shoe but not enough to ruin the look.

    A big IN till you get to the shoes.  Then it becomes a small in.  Not only do I hate the color of those shoes, but I also hate the fact that they don’t fit.  Why wear ugly, ill-fitting shoes with such a fabulous dress?

  • Anonymous

    The shoe is stupid–especially with this dress, but not enough to earn an Out. The other accessories are mostly bland (although I like the play of color across the clutch), but not enough to earn an Out. She looks, as you say, laid-back chic, which is right for these non-event events. I give it an In but not an emphatic one.

    Of all the shoes you’ve called Barbie Shoes, these are the most Barbie Shoe-est of them all. Tell me that is not exactly Barbie Pink!  Because it’s a long dress – and a lovely long dress at that – it probably covers the shoes most of the time, thereby lessening the impact a horrid shoe choice usually has on my judging. Miss Wilde is an IN. She looks glamorous and gorgeous!

    BUT…this combo makes me eye twitch.  I’m not color-wheel obsessed by any means, but a hot pink going to the bluish-purplish side of the scale looks SO WRONG with a peachy-beige dress.  I’m thinking copper-colored shoes would have looked awesome here, or even an orangeish-red.  But a cool pink with a warm neutral is kind of nauseating.

    Don’t let your shoes upstage your face.

    I’ve talked myself into an OUT.

    Here’s what happened:
    After a lovely afternoon of having her hair and make-up tastefully done, she put on her dress. That’s when she realized it looked like a rag and so she threw on the shoes she had in her closet from her Halloween Costume last year (hooker) to ‘bump’ things up a bit.
    The result: trainwreck from the neck down.

    I kinda like the look, and the visual punch delivered by the oh-so-unexpected shoes, although I agree with those who pointed out that they’d have as much punch, but less ouch, had they been red.  Overall: IN.

    If she wanted to make a statement with her shoes, “I’m a Barbie Girl” should not have been it. And royal blue would have been better than pink if that was indeed what she was going for. Bronze, blue, or black. Not shocking pink. Ugh. out.

    OUT. Good lord what hooker shoes.

    Ya I agree – I love the dress and all of the accessories except for the shoes. I do think she could have pulled off colourful shoes here – she doesn’t necessarily need a neutral shoe; but that shade of pink doesn’t work with the dress.

    IN because I love the dress and how beautiful the headshot is. I love the slight blue-green rough edge and how that picks up her eye color. (Sorry, not very articulate today.)

    OUT.  Shoes are jarring and unforgivable.  A fatal flaw.

    I don’t like the pink, but I do like the idea of a pop of color with the shoes. At least they’re not silly-putty pumps!

    I was like, “Oh, she looks so fab- THE SHOES WHAT THE HELL.”

    Love the dress but hate the shoes. REALLY HATE the shoes.
    OUT.

  • MilaXX

    OUT! Those shoes completely ruin the look. They pull the eye to them and you miss a pretty nice dress.

    The color-blocked, frayed-edged dress is really very cool. LOVE the mottled clutch bag, the leafy earrings and the slim gold bangles. BUT . . . those horrible pink shoes suck like my grandma’s Hoover. What a way to wreck an otherwise original and elegantly unique red carpet look,

    Out for the shoes. But mostly because they’re way too freakin’ big for her feet.

  • Nora Mulllin

    IN. fab, pretty, sexy, perfectly suited to her. I hate the shoes but Im pretty sure I’d hate the shoes with any dress. Also, can we get all of the starlets a course in how to buy shoes that aren’t too big?

    OUT!! With the thousands of ultra fabulous shoes available to a starlet like herself, she picked THESE! Oy.

    Agree on the shoes, not a fan. But I like the rest of the look so IN.

  • oohsparkley!

    Out.  You are right, the shoes are too much – too jarring to let pass.

    The shoe choice is inexplicable.  OUT.

    Sad face OUT. Because this had so much WERQ potential. The earrings are also so wrong.

  • Mary McClelland

    In – very striking and her hair and make-up are beautiful.

    It would pain me so to give 13 an out, and honestly, I think so damned much is right in the look that I can’t do it here just for the shoes (which I agree, are a tad jarring).  IN

    In.  She looks beautiful.

    That dress is gorgeous but those shoes ruined it for me. OUT.
