In or Out: Gwyneth Paltrow in Elie Saab

Posted on November 11, 2011

We had every intention of shouting out “WERQ it, girl!” at this look:

Gwyneth Paltrow in Elie SaabGwyneth Paltrow attends the Red Carpet for the Bambi Award 2011 ceremony in Wiesbaden, Germany in Elie Saab.

Because it’s a gorgeous color, beautiful shape, and it looks spectacular on her. Also because the necklace is perfect.

But then we remembered that this is Gwyneth Paltrow and God invented the internet so that people could share cat videos and so that they could come together, without borders or boundaries, and go on and on about how they can’t stand Gwyneth Paltrow. Who are we to deny people another opportunity to do so?

Besides, we’re sick of her flat hair, so a WERQ post would not have been appropriate.

 

Vote Now!
IN! Fuck the haters!

OUT! Hate the fucker!


Voting is still open on Jessica Alba’s dress, which is possibly chic, or possibly old lady. Opinionize, darlings.

            The hair this severe better be razor sharp. It just looks a bit scraggly. A simple bump w the clay iron would have helped. The dress is lovely, and green looks good on her. Would have preferred a bare neck w a bracelet. But still it’s an IN.

        I have no opinion about her, really, but I am with you on that necklace. A high, choker-style necklace just looks dumb with a plunging neckline. Dress is a stunner, though. So a tentative IN.

      Actually hate the necklace with the dress although love both on their own. Her hair looks pretty terrible (the dye job and the ironing) but I’m going to be generous and give her an IN anyway because I think that dress is pretty fabulous and suits her much better than the Calvin Klein minimalism sheath stuff she usually pulls. But that hair is getting close to Xtina-land in terms of gross.

      • Anonymous

        My thoughts exactly. The hair just looks bad, even some smoothing serum would have made it look a bit better. The necklace doesn’t go with the dress, it’s fighting it, even though it’s a great necklace. But the color is great on her, and I’ll begrudgingly second your IN.

      She’s in, but yeah, the first thing thought when I saw that picture is how tired of her hair I am. She could at least do strawberry blond or waves or something. Blah.

          There’s no freaking way a dress like this could not look completely tacky and untastefull on a women with a full pair of breast.  I think it looks much better on flat or semi-flat chested woman.  And what an amazing color!

      I think the color of the dress works better on the model than it does on Gwynneth.  I think most greens look better on red heads and some brunettes. I think she looks great overall, and I love to see color on the red carpet.  It’s an in.

        I don’t like the necklace at all, with or without the dress.

        Gwyneth has really crappy hair. I think she’s gotten to the point where she lets it do what it wants to do, which is not a bad attitude to have about your hair. But there’s a big difference between that and not at least trying to make it look good. Girl needs a haircut.

        Despite the crappy hair, I give her an IN. She looks great.

        As a fellow thin, relatively flat chested woman, I take offense with this. I will never understand how it is sacrilege to criticize a curvy woman, but thin women remain fair game for snark. 

        • Anonymous

          Yes, exactly.

          I think it’s considered OK because thin girls are the runway standard. But it’s not.

          The very worst one has to be ‘real women have curves’. Or maybe ‘Men don’t want to shag an ironing board’. It’s not OK to boost the self-esteem of big women by belittling thin women.

          • teh kou

            Or how about “she just needs to eat a sandwich.” Because obviously all thin women get thin by starving themselves, just like all fat women get fat by stuffing themselves…

        • Anonymous

          No harm intended, I just meant that why does she wear such a low cut gown when many other styles would look good on her. I also wouldn’t like a busty woman spilling out all over her gown, so you are making an assumption that I wouldn’t criticize that. Also, I think you shouldn’t worry about taking offense from a stranger on the internet. Life is too short for that. Peace.

        • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

          I suppose it’s because women who aren’t a size 0 get constantly told (at least in the maninstream media) that we are less than desirable. I’m generally comfortable being a size 8, but in the world of fashion, I’m plus size. That made me feel bad until I got over it. I go to the gym with my slender friend, and people would actually go up to her and ask why was she working out. That opened my eyes. All women are real. It’s the idealization of some that causes problems.

          • Anonymous

            When I was in high school, the boy I liked told me I was perfect in every way except he couldn’t date me because I was too skinny (code for my boobs are too small). Four girls in my graduating class got boob jobs as presents. I’m lucky to have embraced my itty bitty titties, but I think I am still overly sensitive to any type of body criticism because I have known far too many people who take it to heart.

            So point is, I think the only women who seem immune to scrutiny about their bodies are Victoria’s Secret models: thin women with big boobs.

            • teh kou

              Nah, they have their own problems, just in a different way. Like having it assumed they must be sluts, that they are made for sex, are “putting it on display” even in a baggy sweater, etc.

      • Anonymous

        I would rephrase to say that it would have looked better had she not had so much shimmer on the chest because that highlights her thinness unattractively. The woman on the runway is probably just as thin as she is, but because she doesn’t have the shimmer making her sternum stand out it doesn’t look as severe.

      In. Hell, she’s pulling off a long green sequin gown, which screams a WERQ to me. I really don’t get why she gets so much hate. I mean, yeah, she’s annoying and ridiculous and totally clueless, and her pretentious website is completely hilarious.  She certainly deserves an eyeroll (okay, probably more than one), but the hate seems totally out of proportion to me.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Deborah-Jozayt/100002949685297 Deborah Jozayt

        I don’t really dislike her, either. I definitely understand where the hate is coming from, though. When I used to try and recreate some of Martha Stewart’s lifestyle suggestions with decorating the house and whatnot, my husband would ask me why I was doing it. I honestly felt like our home could look “better” somehow, but had I never heard of Martha Stewart, I would never have felt that my home wasn’t worthy in the first place. 

        Paltrow is now in Martha Stewart territory, but her lifestyle suggestions involve raising your children. It’s so much harder to feel as “worthy” as a mother with Paltrow around if don’t have the money, time, or maids/nannies like she does to raise them in the way she suggests. I would expect a ton of bitterness toward her for giving people the opportunity to feel that way. jmo.

      i think she has become so interesting in recent years (her cookbook, her show with mario, glee…), even if she is still coming across as a snob. this is not a color i would normally like, and i think that with the flat hair ending in points she has a whiff of ‘princess of the lizard people,’ but i think that it is a wise look to contextualize that elaborate necklace. IN in my book.

      i agree on the point of the necklace– it’s necessary to save her look from being a total clone of the runway. and it’s a shame we can’t glimpse her shoes. but frankly, flat-ironed hair suits gwyneth best. an up-do would have put too much emphasis on the neckline and made her look a little gaudy. the shoulder-grazing style lends some subtlety and elegance. definite IN.

      Only because Zoe Saldana wore a better version at the Latin Grammys.

      Totally IN. I know she is self satisfied and smug but I do not get why the Gwyn hate is so bitter and twisted.

      You’ve got to be joking. She looks like she dressed for the CMAs.

      Resounding IN! She drives me nuts, but she looks gorgeous.

      Yes, I’m a bitter, judgemental kitten, but a fair one. She really looks good in the dress. The color really works on her, and brings her out. Totally IN, but you are correct, the hair holds to back from being a WERQ.

      IN love the color on her, dress fits perfectly, jewelry is amazing.  Hair is meh, but whatever.

      In!  Love the color, love the subtly ’30s feel of it, and the necklace is killer.  For once, I like the straight hair, because it keeps it from going retro, but if she pairs it with another neutral column, we’re going to have a talk.

      Beautiful! My only complaint is that I don’t like the belt since it cuts that beautiful dress in half.  IN!

      If people are so pathetic as to get so twisted up in hatred over some actress that has zero effect on their lives then that’s their problem. Some people need to learn a bit of detachment!
      Have no opinion on her either way. But the dress is a bit different and looks good on her. Not so keen on the necklace with it, but her hair is just her hair and simple is probably better with this.
      IN

      Love the dress, love the color, love the way it fits.  Now if she would just do something with that hippie-chick hair…….

      Definitely in … Bold, beautiful, over the top and she looks happy.

      As someone with green eyes I am CONSTANTLY looking for exactly that shade in anything.  I hate her hair too, but with Gwennie you’re never going to get anything else.  Anyway, I couldn’t possibly declare that green out.  

      So, IN!

      I don’t like anything about that dress at all — I realize I’m in the minority here — but to me it looks weirdly cheap for Elie Saab, the color looks prom-y, and with her nearly boobless figure she can’t carry off a dress cut down to her belly button that then, to top things off, also has shoulder pads, it’s just too much the silouhette of a football player.

      I think the necklace is totally unnecessary, and her hair does bore me to tears, and I hate the bitch, but this is STILL AN IN. That dress is perfect.

      IN!  Who cares if half the internet hates her?  She looks awesome – credit where credit is due and all that.

      Green.  Sequins.  I just can’t.  The necklace length and color compete with the deep-v and the green.  Now if this had been in a platinum and no choker…. hmmmm.   Hair is tragic.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      It’s a good dress, and, for once, she doesn’t look like she’s sucking on a persimmon.  The necklace is fabulous, can’t tell anything about her shoes, but her hair is pretty boring.

      Would have been flawless if her hair was up and she was actually working the dress, instead of looking nervous — like always.

      Dress looks great. Choker is a good choice. Her hair is so tired, it needs a week at Canyon Ranch to get its pep back.

      Maybe it’s my monitor, but the runway shots on this dress show a green greener than all the green in Emerald City — and that’s all I could see.  If the Wicked Witch of the West needed glamour shots, she’d wear this dress.  Otherwise, the color is abominable.  On Gwyneth, the green is the shade of sea moss, dark and mottled.  Suddenly, I can see the dress, and it is AMAZING.  And wonderful on her.  (Except for the hair.  Why not a simple chignon, if she wants sleek?)

      Out. Done better by JLo in the ’90s.

      I’ve never had a problem with Gwyneth, but I very often have a problem with her hair, and this is no exception. That said, she is effortlessly working that dress, so: IN!

      In! It’s a refreshing take on glitter AND it’s not a neutral tea towel of a dress. Also, I Iove a well-deployed green.

    • Anonymous

      Oh, she’s IN.  Damn it.

    • Damien Washington

      I think the straight hair is her only real option. She has that Joni Mitchell type of pronounced face that short or curly hair would only amplify.

      As for the dress, she looks fine in it, but who with a decent body wouldn’t? It’s so basic. It reminds me of a dress Frederica von Stade wore in A Carnegie Hall Christmas Concert from 1991, only without lapels. Of course Kathleen Battle wore a flaming red gown that went on for days and totally showed her up. Fightin’ bitches –they are timeless!

      It’s an in, though I’d love to see her in something a little more demure, like Zoe S’s green dress the other day.  There’s always something sheer or plunging lately.

      marginal Out–the flat front-hanging hair combined with the drape of the dress and the wide deep neckline create an overall impression of droopiness.  But it is a great color and dress; hair up or even pulled back would have pushed her over the In line.

    • Anonymous

      IN but I must differ about the necklace working here – the look is sparkly enough.  It would have been a far more resonding IN if she’d instead done tasteful earrings.  That color and that beading is bling enough.

      I hate her, but she’s IN here. GRUMP.

      I think she looks lovely, though I don’t like the way the necklace breaks up the plunging V.  Mostly, I’m just sad she wore it before Angelina Jolie did.  How great would this be on her?  V-neck, sleeves, a color she looks great in and might wear.

      I stand firmly in the can’t-stand-her camp, but there’s no denying that she’s a very pretty girl. That pin straight hair, though, is really old and isn’t doing her any favors. She’s got a face that would work with many different hairstyles, yet she always shows up with the same old boring hair.
      Anyway, the dress. I like it a lot, but I don’t like it on her. I’m not about to ding a girl for having small boobs, but the cleavage on this dress isn’t doing her any favors. I can’t even describe it. It’s just not looking sexy. Also, it must be said: if she didn’t stand there all slouchy like that, the entire look would come together a little better.

      I do appreciate the jewelry, though. Very much. Thank you, Gwynnie, for giving us a little bling when everyone else seems to be afraid to deck themselves out with jewels.

      But I’m giving her an OUT on principle. Stand up straight, bitch!

      I can’t stand her, but she looks really swell here. A grudging and cranky IN from me.

      Love her or hate her, the genius of Elie Saab has made her look fantastic here.  IN. No doubt.

      She’s In, except for her hair. But that’s just a minor quibble.

      she is totally in. the hair is not great, but she looks stunning.

      I love to make fun of Gwynnie, heaven knows, but she actually looks great here.  LOVE the color on her.  I do think she could give her hair a little zhuzh, but on the whole, she’s IN.

      NO.  1) When did that kelly green color get labelled as “fabulous” because all I can see is the St. Patrick’s Day Parade when I look at it.  2) Her hair is hiddy.  It’s not pretty, it’s thinning, and it’s not in great shape.  She’s too old to have Marsha Brady Hair.  Like her or not, OUT OUT OUT.
