In or Out: Michelle Williams in Oscar de la Renta

Posted on November 08, 2011

We should hate this look. Are you a devoted minion? Then you can figure out why.

 

Michelle Williams in Oscar de la RentaMichelle Williams attends the AFI Fest 2011 Special Screening Of “My Week With Marilyn”  in Hollywood in an Oscar de la Renta dress paired with Jimmy Choo sandals.

Time’s up. Put your pencils down, class. The reason we should hate this look is because it represents one of T Lo’s biggest red carpet complaints: outfits that match the skin and/or hair of the wearer just a bit too closely. Especially on pale girls like Michelle, the effect can be ghostly and a little disturbing. Bear in mind, however, that we said we should hate this look. Because we don’t. We think she manages to pull it off and come off looking sweet, sexy, and sophisticated. Part of the reason it works is the shape – if this exact textile had been used to make a flowy gown, we probably would have hated it – and the texture, which highlights her shape and picks up just enough light to prevent it from becoming a skin dress. In addition, her makeup looks fantastic. Those slightly bronzey highlights play well off her hair and the dress. Also, killer shoes. No, darlings. We should hate this, but we actually love it quite a bit. You are free to disagree, but be aware that we will judge you harshly if you do.

IN! Shimmery movie star!

OUT! Nope. She’s still twee as fuck.

In yesterday’s bitchy news, Laura Dern’s sassy jacket and leather dress got an IN from a lot of gals who seemed to want to own her outfit and Felicity Jones got an OUT because no one wanted to wear her outfit.

      I agree; I hate this trend. Also the no nail polish trend, but I’m sick of gnashing my teeth over it. I’m just hoping the trend passes soon, that’s all.

      Are you saying that this is in because it doesn’t look twee, or are you saying that this is in despite looking twee? Just checking, because I don’t think there is anything twee about this–except, perhaps, her ever-present pixie cut.

      • Anonymous

        I’m saying that it’s in despite looking twee.  I think it strikes me that way because of the combination of the haircut, the cut of the skirt and the lack of jewelry.  Not that I have anything against those things per se, just that I’d like to see her mix it up with other kinds of looks.

    It has quite a few of your “hates”: sheer skirt over shorter skirt, ankle straps on the shows, color close to the skin, blah, blah, blah.  She looks great, mostly because Mr. de la Renta is the ultimate designer of beautiful dresses that look good on women.  That is a gorgeous dress.

    It still looks like a dress that one of my Barbie’s had. I am going to give her an “in” because she dialed down the twee a bit and her hair and makeup look very pretty. But I’m doing it grudgingly.

    It also fits her very well. She doesn’t look as if she needs to yank the dress up before she has a nip slip and she has a little push-up action going on without her boobs looking tortured. Even the shoes fit! She doesn’t have a 1/2 inch gap between her heel and the back of the shoe! Amazing! Hair and make-up look beautiful.

    Well done, Michelle.

      Interesting to read this, but some of the cliches in the article are ridiculous. Michelle has the perfectly shaped face to wear her short hair. It’s extremely flattering. I think the facial bone structure makes all the difference. I think it’s lovely that she feels like herself in this hairdo, and that also, it honors the feelings of the late father of her daughter.

    This totally works.  The texture allows the light to give it a sense of depth and multiple colors that mitigates the “same color as her skin” problem.

    IN… even better than on the model. She fills it out, it puffs better on her, the skirt is a great length…love it.

    I said, “Ankle strap!” but I still thought it was cute. IN

    IN! You know hard and fast rules in fashion leave too little room for creativity.

    IN-can’t say it any better than you did. Also, killer heels.

    Beacuse it fits so perfectly, and as you said, the texture provides contrast to her skin. Also: fabulous shoes! I would have liked to seen some subtle bling around the neck, but that’s just nit-picking. She looks divine!

    I agree, she pulls it off. But I’d still love to see it in another color. I adore the shoes.

    OK, in the name of preventing osteoperosis, I don’t like it. I think she’s too pale for it, and I think it’s too tall for her/too big for her. The fabric is so stiff that it looks like it could stand on it’s own without her in it. She looks good, if a little shiny, and the shoes are great. I am just so over this color. SO over it.

    She can’t convince me as Marilyn Monroe, but this is an IN.

    Out. I knew it was going to be her “erased” look. It coulda been an In if she has picked a color! Like a real color not her skin tone.

    She’s one blig, bleige blur. And not even one piece of jewelry? Out. LOVE the shoes, though.

    IN, but this dress seems very “sweet 16″ to moi…

    I’m really torn on this one.  I like the dress, but I hate to see all its sparkly ecru-ness wasted on someone as blonde as Williams.  This would look so much better on, oh, Anne Hathaway.  The shoes are wonderful but I have to say I think the glittery heels are a poor match for the much more subtle sparkle of the dress.  I love her hair but cannot get past the shiny makeup.  And does nobody own earrings anymore?  This trend has GOT to die.  I know, the Jeopardy music is playing, I have to make a decision………OUT.  But I will go see the movie anyway!

    Out. She and the dress blend perfectly. The shape isn’t bad, but the color. Ugh!

    In.  Cute and a little flashy without being too flashy.  It suits her.

    I love those shoes, but the dress does nothing for me. On a girl with more colour, maybe. Out.

    This could have been a “WERQ”.  The shoes are PERFECT with that dress.  And this dress is beautiful.  IN.
