In or Out: Felicity Jones in Proenza Schouler

Posted on November 07, 2011

We’ll keep this brief because we know you’re a busy person and you don’t have time to waste on silly starlets and their silly clothes. It’s like this: Lorenzo really likes this look and Tom really … doesn’t. The kittens will have to make the call.


Felicity Jones in Proenza SchoulerFelicity Jones attends The Hollywood Reporter’s Annual Next Generation Reception in Proenza Schouler.

Lorenzo thinks it perfectly straddles that line between modern and the retro looks that suit Felicity so well. It’s prim in that Mid-Century, Peggy Olson kind of way, yet it has a 21st Century edge to it. Tom thinks her skirt looks like a DIY project utilizing electrical tape, like those homemade wallets that were all the rage for a while. He also maintains that the silhouette here only looks winsome and pretty on size zero models approaching 6 feet in height. On a less extreme body, the skirt looks too long and heavy and the blouse goes frumpy. We’re so at odds over the clothes that we don’t even care all that much about the hair, makeup, and accessories.

IN! Sexy leather secretary!

OUT! My thighs are sweating just looking at her.

The kittens were feeling kind on Friday and voted both Amanda Seyfried’s lanai cushion and Daniel Craig’s too-tight suit IN.

      Now that would have been an interesting Project Runway challenge…. make an outfit out of muslin and duct tape… in 45 minutes!

      Very OUT.

         Maybe next season? But for now, it’s OUT. Too bad, I love the top.

        I thought of “make an outfit out of car parts” challenge.
        It looks cheap (ala Alberta Ferretti– “Chip in a chip way”).

  • Diana Ruskin

    Loving it from the waist up. Hair and makeup are flawless, but the skirt looks like a Project Runway challenge gone crafty.

    • Tadiana Walton Jones

      Project Runway challenge indeed.  And the judges criticize it for excessive length and stiffness in the skirt and the horizontal striping that makes anyone other than a runway model (even a cute starlet) look dumpy.  OUT.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Well I’m hopping in here because “Discus” won’t let me post above.  Sheesh.  Anyhoo, I agree with Diana 100%.  From just the thumbnail, I thought she looked great.  Scroll, scroll, scroll … what the HELL???  Yeah, she’s OUT.

    Mmmyeah I’m with Tom. The skirt looks like it was made out of some very heavy-duty trash bags.

    If it was wool or some other non-shiny material, I would love it. Alas, I just cannot. OUT.

      Yeah, I though trash bags also. Like some Project Runway challenge.

      Yes, wool would have been nice.  The drape would have been so much better and that might have made a big difference.

    I don’t even think the model is quite pulling it off.  I love the idea and the silhouette, but the leather just does not work for me.  Out.

      I agree. The leather is too shiny and I could do without the holster pockets, but I like the overall design.

    Duct Tape skirt indeed.  Out.  Somethings are meant to be shown on the runway, for people to oooh and aaaah about their avante guardness, but not intended to be worn by actual people.

    I’m of two minds about this look: But then this look is of two minds all on its’ own. It’s sort of like for the prissy girl who wants to dip her toe in the slutty pool but can’t quite commit. I like the collar on the sweater, but what is with the nipple eyepatch?

    Then again, I’ve heard that a lot of librarians are into S&M these days.

    Weak IN. The skirt is too long on her, so you can really see how stiff it is, and I don’t like the accidental shininess. Still, the hair and makeup are great and it’s a really cute look.

    I like it, actually, but I would like it better if the silhouette on the skirt were less A-line–like how it is on the model. They should have altered it.

    That skirt looks like a cut-up plastic rain coat. OUT OUT OUT!

  • RL McGruder

    I can see where they were going with this, but…good in theory, not so much in execution.

  • Emma Liberman

    IN. She looks cute and is taking a risk. Any other sort of material and she would look like she was in a costume. 

  • L.

    Oy, OUT.  Maybe Lorenzo likes this, because if the skirt were pants, he would wear it.  This might work are geeky-guy in leather chic, but I don’t like it on her.

    OUT. The top is really cute but the bottom is disproportionately heavy.

    My first thought when I opened the picture was “Her skirt is eating her.” That’s never happy.

  • Heather Snedeker Innis

    Totally with Tom on this one!

    Out.  Everything in that outfit is trying too hard except the preppy-looking fabric of the top.  Maybe if she had gone all Harajuku with it (except then we’d have to ding her for being all Harajuku, so … yeah).

    OUT.  Shower curtain skirt paired with golf shirt top.

    I thought I was seeing an alternate reality version of PR.
    *Designers, here is a roll of electrical tape, some Swarovski jewels, and your dad’s old polo shirt. Make it work!*

    …btw, that’s an o.u.t.

    I like the whole look in theory, but the skirt does look like duct tape. I actually think the outfit looks better on her than the model. Her face looks great. I think she’s OUT though.

  • Sorana Tarmu

    I completely agree with Tom, although hair and make up are great and don’t clash with the outfit. But she looks frumpy and yes, like she’s wearing a duct tape skirt. OUT.

  • Rachelle Neame

    I see the criticisms on the skirt, but sometimes with these in or out posts, I just see the girl and can’t stop thinking “IN IN IN IN IN”.

    So she’s in. Come on- I know the details are bleh, but damn if she isn’t working it and looking just so goshdarned pretty despite a duct tape skirt.

    Hum… I’m more on the IN side. It’s different sure, & probably looks best in natural light. Also, I don’t love the fact that the epaulette is only on one side -and there is a giant black pocket on just one side – but I’m still erring toward IN.  

  • Anonymous

    it’s a weird dress, but it’s different and non-offensive and she’s wearing it well.  so IN (more due to her ability to pull this weird shit off)

    I agree with Tom that it looks like those electrical tape wallets, but inexplicably, I like it! IN!
    And actually, I think it looks way better on her than on the model. 

  • Merneith

    Out – have to go with Tom on this one.

  • Abigail Chang

    I think it’s probably the flash from the cameras making it look like tape. I like it – it has character. In.

    OUT. I like the top, but the alterations she made to the skirt ruin it. Without the slit, it looks very stiff and unweildy.

  • Anonymous

    i like the top. not so much the skirt. out.

  • Kerry McCombs

    Ew no. Love Felicity. Don’t love this look.

  • { edi } ilovetrash

    looks like it’s made out of electrical tape but looks nice. other than the pocket, which annoys & which looks like it could have been made by oliver, say, for the sheepdog challenge.

    i also think it looks better on her than on the model.

  • Astrid Gielen

    Wow that is  awful. OUT!

    Adorable from the waist up. The rest is OUT.

    The top half, shoes, hair and make  up are great! The skirt however is so egregious that it makes it an OUT.

  • Anonymous

    OUT.  Top half is okay at best, the skirt is just mess.

    OUT. Hate that plastic picnic tablecloth skirt.

  • oohsparkley!

    Out.  Out of proportion on her.  They should have scaled the skirt down.  Even so, not worth altering, it isn’t cute enough to bother.

  • Anonymous

    It looks like a PR challenge loser. Love the concept hate the execution. Stiff and icky. I do however covet the shoes. Please tell me they are in the less than a million dollar range. Thanks!

    I kind of want to like it for being so different, but I just can’t get past the fact that she looks like she’s wearing duct tape.  OUT.

    The top is cute but the skirt makes me feel a little twitchy. Then again I have had a lot of coffee today. It looks like a black candy corn.

  • Julianne Mullikin

    I like it.  I would maybe wear it.

    OUT.  Audrey Hepburn called, and said your skirt is fugly.

    I love it.  She looks current but she not without faults.  First, I’d swap her shoes for a pair with a more suitable heel.  Second, I would get rid of the bangs and the kohl rimmed eyes.  The japanese amime look is getting old.

    Out.  The skirt looks like it weighs a thousand pounds and she made it in home economics.  Fail.

    I lied: one comment: every time TLo posts about Felicity Jones, I inexplicably expect a picture of Rashida Jones, whom I adore, and then I am disappointed. Nothing wrong with Felicity. I’m sure she’s lovely. But I want to have ice cream sundaes and talk 1940s pratfall comedies with RJ.

  • Anonymous

    Wish it were a bit more tailored and hemmed for her body, but a definite IN for the cute and cheeky factor.

  • Noelle Haland

    Way out, though I admire her use of duct tape!

  • Anonymous

    I agree with Tom about the electrical tape but I don’t think the model makes it look like fashion either.

    Still, I think it’s HIL-A-RIOUS. As soon as I saw it I started laughing – and that’s better than cringing, right?


  • akprincess72

    Yeah…. no.

  • Anonymous

    I do see how you’re both right. In fact I’d vote for In if she’d owned the look a bit more, like the model does. But here she looks like she’s unsure and looking for approval. So Out.

    Out.  I’d be kind of meh on it, but that shirt pocket offends me.

    as weird as it is, I’m gonna give it an IN. Somehow it just works?

  • Badriya Al-Badi’a

    Electrical tape was exactly my first thought for the skirt too!  But I like the top, and the styling.  I’d say In from the (too high) waistline up, Out from the (too high) waistline down.

  • Chrissie

    I love the blouse on her. Unsure on the skirt, but it has its certain charm. IN: I could see her getting compliments for her outfit at a party.

  • Anonymous

    OUT: I actually could have tolerated the pseudo-leather skirt, but the leather-trimmed white shirt/sweater (shweater?) is HORRENDOUS. I would have paired it with a simple, modern t-shirt-cut top.

    OUT.  The skirt is just hideous.

    And here we go with the toe lines again. Bleurgh.

    I love the skirt although it sits too high on her frame thus making the top look truncated.
