In or Out: Amanda Seyfried in Michael Angel

Posted on November 04, 2011

We feel a little bad for Amanda because we’ve been forced to rag on her past couple of style choices and we know how devastating it must be for her to hear us say unkind things. We’re gonna do her a solid and feature her in something we like, but we’re not sure if we like-like.

Amanda Seyfried in Michael AngelAmanda Seyfried attends “In Time” Photocall in Madrid in a Michael Angel dress.

Amanda Seyfried in Michael Angel

It’s interesting, right? We’ll give it that. We’ve been shrieking for years about more prints on the red carpet and there’s definitely a trend towards wearing them. The Hollywood crowd is notoriously nervous about style, so expect the print–on-the-red-carpet trend to be short-lived. So it makes us want to praise every instance of a starlet wearing a print in front of photographers. Are we responding just a bit too positively because we want to or because we really, truly, sincerely love it? Examine that, minions.

We can admit, no matter what, that the shape of this dress is difficult to wear, with the high slit and asymmetrical hem. Once again, there’s a sense that she’s dressing wrong for her height and making herself look smaller and shorter than she is. We wonder if she has a new stylist who doesn’t quite understand the shape of her body yet.

Still, A+ for reaching for that wild print. It will be up to the Bitter Kittens, the Precious Unborn Fawns of our comments section, to decide if she is IN or OUT and ultimately if she LIVES OR DIES.

Okay, no on that last part. We just wanted to see if you were still reading.

Vote Now!
IN! Bold & beautiful!

OUT! Meet me on the lanai, Rose and Dorothy.

Voting on Daniel Craig’s very tight suit is still open.

    Meh. B. So, “IN” but I did think the metallic collar did all the heavy design lifting in the original. The hair should be pulled up and lady, your shoes are boring.
    Still.
    “IN” for not making a serious misstep.

    I think she looks incredible.  I’m not seeing the proportion problem with this dress at all, maybe because her legs look a million miles long.

    • http://profiles.google.com/singingraisin ali meowmeow

      Agreed on the legs. It’s hitting her exactly where it should, and with the heels, it makes her legs look longer than the model’s. The only place I’m spotting a proportion issue is at her waist, because she appears to have a shorter torso than the model. But the wonkyish fit there is pretty well-concealed by the print, and I wouldn’t have noticed it at all without the runway photo to scroll between.

      Totally incredible look for her, and a definite in. (Not to mention a vast improvement over what she’s been recently been wearing.)

    Lowercase In. A wonderful, moody print. But it looks like the dress is wearing her–she needs to command her clothes a bit more. Also, she should have worn her hair up so we could see the collar, which I really like.

    I’ll give you she looks tiny, but not stumpy. I’m just sorry her hair is covering it up so that I can’t see if she’s got the gold collar on her version. I think she looks good, although I wonder if some bolder jewelry might have been better? IN, in any case.

    I love it. In. Good choice on the shoe, too, if it’s the shade of eggplant I think I’m seeing – perfectly harkens to the purple in the dress. One minor quibble – where’s the jewelry? I get why they didn’t use the gold collar – it’s a little twee and would have gotten lost in her hair, but some gold chunky jewelry somewhere – I’m thinking big gold dangly earrings – would have really helped make those purples POP.

  • Anonymous

    Out.  I like the dress, like the print.  But everything about her from the neck up is just wrong.  The dress on the model has a striking neckline that you can’t see because of her hair.  If you’re going to wear that kind of dress, put your hair up.  Also, without seeing the neckline, the minimalist jewelry completely fades away.  She might as well not be wearing any.

    Worse, she looks like the crankiest person on earth (and that’s saying something considering K-Stew is currently doing the rounds).  I’m sorry if you’re tired honey — you get paid more money in a month than most of us make in a year to stand and get your picture taken.  Suck it up.

    Good for her for risking an edgy print dress on the red carpet, but risk-taking requires a certain attitude, energy, and style maturity to pull it off. Her hair, facial expression, posture, and even foot placement all say “teenager”, or maybe “self-conscious”. She’s not quite ready for this dress.

    Personally, I would have liked a slightly richer tone for the shoes, like an oxblood or chocolate brown, and some jewelry with more impact than that perfectly lovely, but too sedate ring. But the print is gorgeous and the shape is interesting without totally destroying her proportions. In.

  • Anonymous

    her hair adds to the shortening effect… i think it looks like it’s overtaking her, despite being both beautiful and her signature. i think she could radically change her look even with just a style change, nevermind a cut and color. she looks delish in the previews for this movie, with that sleek dark bob.

    Enh…I hate to bag on the girl since she is definitely trying something, and her legs look great. I’m bothered by the print–in the closeups it looks an awful lot like something Seinfeld’s mom would have worn in Boca. A big camp shirt with a little collar and beeeg shoulder pads. Are you seeing it now?

    I also like the cut of the dress, despite minor fit issues….but all of this together? Sorry Mandy. Out.

    Love the dress, but not on her. Her body type, face and coloring just aren’t suited for that high fashion elegance — she has more of a bombshell aesthetic, and she should work that shit instead of trying to become something she’s not.

    • Anonymous

      I was just thinking they should have cast her as Catwoman with Michelle Pfeiffer making an appearance as her mother. It seemes she really backs off those bombshell-ish roles and prefers a more buttoned-up look. I wonder if playing that bombshell superditz in Mean Girls made her back off the bombshell altogether, mistakenly equating it with superditz.

    The dress is in. The poor posture and the I-don’t-want-to-be-here-and-would-rather-be-running-from-a-pack-of-rabid-dogs smile, however, are out.

    In but I liked the blue dress with the cutout better.

    I’m giving her, or rather her stylist, an out.  I like the print but, as I said in a previous post, it is NOVEMBER and it would have been more interesting if she were wearing some fabulous wool dress with something real wild like sleeves.

    It’s a nice enough dress, but the bitch face has got to go.  Even if you’re not feeling it Amanda, you’re an actress; try to fake it.

    I give it a very unenthusiastic IN.  Too bad her hair is covering up the dress’s defining element, that crazy collar.  And I rather like the shoes, even if they are “just black heels”.  If there’s one thing reading TLo has taught me, it’s that runway styling and celebrity styling are two different things, even when the same clothing is involved.  So while I get it that the model is wearing what look to be glorified golf shoes with this dress, I vastly prefer the “just black heels” for the photo call.

    And Amanda, remember this during your next publicity tour (to be sung to the tune of, “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man of Mine”):

    Maybe I’m tired and over exposed
    If I don’t smile, though, I know I’ll be hosed
    Cheer up!  Remember, they’re borrowed clothes.

      Weirdly, I’m mostly glad it’s covering the collar, which I thought looked bad on the dress and looks much better covered up by long blond hair!

    I think she looks great but…I kind of hate the shape of the dress. I guess it’s sort of an IN!

    I like the print but really wish she had worn her hair up. It’s the collar that makes me like this dress. In.

    perfectly IN. there’s nothing wrong with this look. i would have maybe given her a ponytail or moved her hair off the neckline at least.

    I’m going with IN, for the print and colors. Not crazy about the hem, but that’s relatively minor.

    It looks like she took off the gold collar, which actually is a move that I applaud, but that mass of hair makes it impossible to tell for certain.  Love the print but not a fan of the cut of the dress.  Lower-case in.

  • Anonymous

    I think the print itself is ugly, and very drab.. Also, her makeup is making her look really tired, along with the expression of “I don’t really want to be here.” I hate to say it because I love her, but she’s OUT.

    IN, Beautiful dress. I don’t understand your “bad proportions” critiques. She looks great.

    Out, just because she looks so miserable. I hate when people tell women to smile because they’re too pretty to frown, so it’s not that. But confidence is part of what makes a look – contrast this with Blake Lively the other day, in a hideous dress but so confident and happy that she looked amazing. Seyfried is a beautiful woman wearing an interesting dress – but she’s not selling that look in the least.

    IN! Love the dress, love her… the hair up would be a nice touch but after everything else she’s worn this is fabulous!

    IN! I quite like this. It’s clearly a hard dress to pull off, but she looks great. Not perfect. But still, good enough. And I’m not really seeing as much of a proportion problem as you guys are. I think it suits her. And I’m liking the print, quite interesting.

    IN. And her hair covers up the horrid collar.  Glad she didn’t stick with sneakers.

    I would say she’s more of an IN! Great styling, for one. Print is great, the hem is a little weird but she still looks good in it.

    this bitter kitten says IN!

  • Anonymous

    Who was it that said, ‘You’re never fully dressed without a smile?’ Well, they were right. She looks like she is being tortured to wear a cute dress and cute accessories. She should be a solid in, but the body language, head to toe, is killing it. It’s a press tour, not a war tour– suck it up and look happy already.

      What you said, exactly. I’ll give her an IN but wish she’d give up the sourpuss expressions.

      • http://toodles.yelp.com AWStevens

        The 3rd one down she’s got a shit-eating-grin… I think she KNOWS she’s gotta do this brain-demeaning crap in order to sell her film and she’s a wee bit fed up.  On the other hand, she’s young, gorgeous, successful and RICH.  She should lighten the fuck up…

    Not awesome, but in.  Better shoes than the designer put on the poor model.  What was with the orthopedic shoes?  Was it some kind of awareness week?

    ETA: Reading the comments, I’m surprised how many people like that collar. I thought it was kind of hideous, and if that dress had been lent to me, I’d be wearing my hair as far over it as I could as well.

    She gets an IN for an interesting dress and gorgeous hair and make up. She could’ve punched up the outfit a bit more with some statement shoes (either deep red or teal would’ve picked up the color in the print without being too matchy) and a statement bracelet (the one she’s wearing is pretty, but a bit boring for this dress) This is definitely a step in the right direction after that horrible, blue short suit she wore earlier this week. Ugh, it even pains me to write the words “short suit”.

  • Diana Martinez

      I say she’s out.  The dress doesn’t really fit (or is she just standing funny?) and the shoes are awful.

    Though I wistfully hope she would gain some weight and go back to look all dolly-adorable as she did in “Mean Girls”.

    In.  I think the proportion problem (if there is one, i am not so sure) is because the print is darker in the middle, which is normally flattering, but against that dark backdrop makes her waist kind of get lost.  Put her up against a white back drop and I bet her shape looks totally different.

    In for the risk – and I think what’s making her look stumpy are her boobs. They aren’t small, and she keeps them too covered – making it hard to delineiate where the toros shape is. She either needs to work on some more waist definition (belts, color blocking, peplums, etc) or wear lower necklines, and sometimes pull some of the hair off of her tits, and stand up straighter…

    I think the collar was the only interesting part, and she took that out.  Other than that, I think it’s just plain ugly.  OUT.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=768540908 Badriya Al-Badi’a

    It could have been an in, but the styling drags the look down, especially her hair.  I can’t even tell if she kept the gold collar on the dress or not, though if it if were removed, that would be another mistake.

  • Anonymous

    Def “in”. I am inclined to think they took the collar off…I think we should be able to see the metallic through her hair and the last pic I think I can see some green/blue peeking through at the neck. Wish she would have swooshed her hair off her collar!
