In or Out: Uma Thurman in Louis Vuitton

Posted on October 11, 2011

Miss Uma has had a somewhat problematic relationship with the red carpet. It seems to us that she’s one of those people who’ve heard all their life how beautiful they are and it soured her on putting too much work into her looks, resulting in a lot of half-assed getups when making public appearances. So we were pretty happy to see her step out in Paris looking like this:

It’s a spectacular dress and it suits her to a T. But we can’t give the gal a “WERQ!” shoutout just yet because, as always with her, we have some issues with the detailing. Issue One: Those shoes. They are almost surely not, but we can’t help thinking they look a little cheap. Issue Two: The bag. Loyal minions will know that we’d never ding a gal for sporting a mismatched bag (in fact, we’d be more likely to applaud her for it), but we really don’t think this green thing was the way to go with this dress. Issue Three: We’re almost embarrassed to admit this because it’s a level of picayune bitchery we like to avoid, but we really hate the color of her nails. We don’t normally pay any sort of attention to nail color, but in this case, we think it’s kind of distracting.

IN! Chic and soignée in that totally Parisian way!

 

OUT! Clumsy and mismatched in that totally Parisian way!

The T Lo commentariat rose up en masse and told us to stop being so damn picky by giving Camilla Belle’s Halloween tablecloth a resounding IN.

    In! Love this dress on her. I agree on the shoes. Way too matchy with those crisscross straps, but also too heavy. the bag is too heavy, too, but I like the color. Green is great with just about everything.

    I would wear the shit out of that dress. I love every single thing about it. Except that it isn’t mine…

    Love the dress, I don’t care for the shoes but there a darn sight better than those clunkers worn by the model, and I didn’t even notice the nail polish color until you guys pointed it out, which to my mind means that it’s basically inoffensive.  The LIP color, on the other hand….now that sticks out.  IN.

    • Anonymous

      What NurseEllen said.  The shoes are okay, and actually don’t look too bad with the dress; I love the bag; and her nails are short enough that the color wasn’t really noticeable until you pointed it out.  And I love the sleek hair. I don’t like her lip color, too bright, but if that’s her worst fashion offense?  She definitely deserves an IN.

  • Haley Buchanan

    IN.  The shoe’s aren’t great, but I’ve seen much worse.  And the dress, hair, and makeup are gorgeous!  Plus she looks so confident and happy, and that’s one of the the biggest IN characteristics of all!

    Her shoes are so much better than the monstrosities the model is wearing.  Love the dress (and I usually hate that length, but she’s rocking it), love the makeup, in fact, I pretty much love everything.

    Her makeup is FABULOUS!
    Something about the detailing of the dress forces one to look at it in a granular fashion, so the nail color comes into sharp focus. The shoes and bag are just too focus-pulling. I don’t mind the green of the bag, but the style and texture are distracting. Because the dress and her makeup are so great, I’ll give her an IN-minus.

    This is a beautiful dress, even with the hem length that I usually hate, but I wonder about that piece around the waist.  Could we get rid of it and add a wider belt? It seems a little heavy I think.  The bag makes no sense with the dress.  She looks beautiful here.

    I never understood the convention that she is so stunningly beautiful; on the other hand, I don’t even recognize her here. Given the context (probably involving walking around on cobblestones and carting what needs to be carted, and maybe wearing yesterday’s manicure) I think she looks amazing. Very chic. I am not crazy about the dress in principle but she looks amazing in it.

    How beautiful is Paris, eh?  Cool dress and I love the fellow in the powder blue jacket.  I was taught that only tarts wear polish on their toes but then I’m a dinosaur.  And I ended up not following that advice myself when I was much younger.  She has a beautiful smile.  Amazing dress.   I might have given the belt such one more notch around the waist.

        • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

          It really is incredible. And – oooh – pierced ears. Slutty, slutty, slutty! I finally pierced mine when I was in my early 20s, back in the stone age. They’re still the only piercings I have.

          • Anonymous

            Hee-hee. When I was a young teen, my mother told me ‘only gypsies and Italians have pierced ears’. And she didn’t mean that in a complimentary way. But, when I was confirmed in church when I was 15, she said I could have anything I wanted as a present. A-ha! I said I wanted pierced ears (this was in the early ’70′s and everybody had them.) She was a woman of her word, I got them pierced and my parents gave me a pair of gorgeous gold hoops. When my mother (and my grandmother) eventually saw how many beautiful earrings I could wear – without hurting like clip earrings – they got their ears pierced too!

            That’s a great vignette and totally how it worked.  Clip ons are just so painful and everything gets lost. Good for them–must have been such a great day for you!

            That is more or less exactly what my mother told me, and my mother in law told my sister in law.  And in a mere six months or less… they both got their ears pierced!!  Guess they were closeted gypsies!!

            What a great story.

            ‘only gypsies and Italians have pierced ears’

            Heh. I can’t wait to tell that to my Sicilian mother. Although she probably already knows it.

          • Anonymous

            You and me both on the ears and that that’s where it stopped.  It was essential to have them pierced in 80s because the selections were just so divine!  I miss a lot of the more subdued 80s looks.  I did pay attention when it came to tatoos though.  I still kind of cringe when I see these young men and women looking like The Illustrated Man.  So unattractive.  Look at what Sweet Pea of PR fame, for instance, did to herself.

    IN, tho without the super-cinched belt as seen on the model, the midsection black fabric seems shapeless and overwhelming.  She’s tall and lithe, she should have tightened her belt a bit.  And agree about the green bag.  That said, she looks terrific and I don’t mind the shoes, or the nail color.

    While I think the look suits her to a “T,” I have to make a confession.  I don’t think she’s beautiful.  In fact, I don’t even think she’s pretty.  She’s striking, but her face just seems “off” to me.  Her eyes are too wide-set or something.

    haven’t seen Uma’s face in a long time, and I think she looks great. what color is the polish, black? I like the shoes although that style will always remind me of the mannequins in the window of my hometown dress shop — the same ballerina lacing (probably the same ribbon!) for almost 40 years.

    In.  I like the dress and her hair/makeup.  The shoes are totally Walmart.  The purse might be cute, but not with this.  But I like more than I dislike, so In.

    Nail color? Seriously?

    In!  The nails are very “on trend.”  Magazines have that as one of the new fall colors.  The bag is a bit heavy looking, but it’s a minor quibble.

    She is in.  The green bag goes fine, i think, except for the gold zipper and lock.  That’s what bothers me about it.  And while the shoes don’t light my world on fire I think they go well with the dress.  She just looks so beautiful.

    I recently had spinal fusion surgery and am sporting a large black brace around my midsection. Thank you Uma for making me feel stylish. I give her an IN cause she looks happy and lovely and comfy in her skin. Her face does seem a tad tighter than usual but still natural so if she had work done, it is good work.

    well i’m certainly swimming against the tide here, but i say OUT.  the dress just looks dowdy, that excuse for a belt is making her look thick, the bands on the shoes are too heavy, and her nails look like she hit each of them with a hammer.  toes too.  but what’s really bugging me is the lipstick color.  go home, take everything off, and find something to wear with that green purse.  it’s the only thing i like.

    IN with a wow, which is how I reacted to the top pic.  I agree that she is a beautiful, arresting-looking woman who’s often hoped nature would speak for itself (not that there’s anything wrong with that, particularly outside the Hollywood world) and never Werq’d it much.  But look– when she does, she stuns.  I love her in this outfit, so perfect for its setting.  And I adore the shoes!  Much better than the ones on the model, and just right for Uma’s legs.  I hadn’t noticed the nail polish until it was pointed out… yeah, I guess it is odd, especially since the toes are a different and better color.  Plain French nails would’ve been good.  But other than that, I completely love how she looks here!
