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.

        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.

      There’s a lot of bad shiny going on here, from that terrible skirt to the pocket over her breast. It’s not good. And I think the only reason the top worked at all was because it was against a black background on the model. Out.

      I agree that the skirt has size and shape issues…could be shorter and less of a flare.  She looks really pretty…makeup and hair are edgy, and complement the the outfit.  Shoes are a snore.

      Sweet jesus, OUT!
      As almost always, I am in Tom’s camp.

      The look is so overwhelmingly bottom-heavy, and it makes her tiny little self look clunky & awkward.

      And it is neither pretty nor elegant and I just can’t *quite* squint hard enough to find chic.

      OUT!

      I hate the boob pocket. On the boobless model the pocket works but on any one with b or up it is embarrassing. However the look is chic and not your run of the mill red carpet wear.

      I think I am in the minority here but I am giving it an in. Without the boob pocket it would have been an IN!
