In or Out: Evan Rachel Wood in Preen

Posted on December 12, 2011

It makes us a little sad that we’re subjecting ERW to the In or Out process (which will never not sound dirty).

 

Evan Rachel Wood in PreenEvan Rachel Wood attends the Andrea Bocelli Foundation Launch in Beverly Hills in a Preen dress paired with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.

But even fashion divas have an off day. Maybe she’s distracted about something, or pissed about something, or maybe she just had a momentary lack of taste – or maybe all of those things happened to her stylist. Whatever the reason, this getup is not inspiring any snaps from us. Nothing offensively bad here, but this sure as hell ain’t no WERQ from where we’re sitting. We like the top but it looks a bit too tight on her and we’re not loving the proportions of the skirt: too high (waist), too low (hem), and too full for the top half, it seems to us.

And Miss Evan Rachel. Are you really defaulting to the peep-toes with bows on them like so many of your lesser ilk have already done? Really? Our disappointment is a bottomless well. This is like the time Cate Blanchett went out looking like a frumpy real estate agent in a badly fitted pantsuit and we wandered the streets for weeks, wracked with despair over it. Also, your clutch looks like something that zips inside your suitcase. Wait… is that your makeup bag, honey? Did you stumble out onto the red carpet halfway through your makeup routine and that’s why you’re hair looks like that? We HATE IT when that happens, don’t you?

But that still doesn’t excuse the dress or the shoes. We’re afraid we have to release the hounds, doll:

 

Vote Now!


IN! Low-key chic!


OUT! Frumpy disappointment!

 

Voting on Rose McGowan’s prom lingerie is still open and waiting for your opinion, darlings.

    I like the dress, I wish the hem was a little higher, but the waist seems fine to me. I hate, hate, hate the hair and makeup. I’m going to give her an OUT, simply because she should know better and the bar has already been set too high for amateur mistakes like this one.

    I’m not crazy about her hair or makeup, and the sleeve and skirt lengths are definitely in frumpy territory. OUT — this is not up to her usual standard.

    idk I think it’s because of how the light hits her forehead in the 1st and 3rd pics, which emphasizes the satiny look… I’d say OUT

  • Anonymous

    It’s a stylish dress, but is it a style that truly suits her? Short sleeves are so damned frumpy and make everyone look somehow dumpier, too. Dislike the twee little belt and the matchy shoes. The hair is weird. Make-up too heavy. So overall, OUT.

    It reminds me of a cheap holiday Barbie knock off that I may have played with when I was 6.

    Out.

    At first I thought I didn’t mind this too much. But then I looked more closely at the shirt and it looked like cheap satin with an ugly 80s pattern, something I probably wore in third grade. And with a matching printed belt and ugly shoes? OUT.

    I’d like to see more color on her face, she looks washed out in the flash, but I like the dress. It isn’t edgy, and isn’t vampish or overtly sexual. A woman doesn’t need to bare her skin to be beautiful. This is an eye catching dress, even with the washed out look. It’s a low key event in the winter time when I expect a normal person to wear a coat. In short, it works for the venue and situation and still looks good. IN

  • Anonymous

    For me it’s the headband and the clutch that throw the look off. I get your beef with the shoes and I agree some color would have been needed (no bow, because together with the headband make the look too twee). This being said, I give the look an IN because I love the dress, it does wonderful things to her and it’s most definitely her dress.

      Those are my exact problems with it too. Better hair and a couple of inches shorter (and a better bra) and it is a WERQ. As it is, she can do so much better so OUT.

    In.  I like this dress with those shoes, although the bodice is a bit tight and the skirt is a bit long.

  • BerlinerNYC

    I give her a big old IN. Not everything has to be the Met Gala or the Oscars. This is a perfectly charming look that doesn’t look interchangable with a million other dresses. As in, I might actually remember it 48 hours from now, which is more than I can say for a lot of looks…

    OUT – it actually doesn’t even look like her.  Maybe it’s a frumpier, less sassy relative of hers? That’s my excuse for this poor showing anyways.

    IN, no question. she’s usually always a werq, and for someone who’s always on like erw is, it’s difficult to see her in “normal” red carpet wear. but this is really adorable in my opinion, and i don’t mind all the matchy-matchy and twee-ness. it’s like if erw is going to do twee, she’s going to turn it up to 11.

    I like the dress quite a bit. But what is going on at the bust line? Bra and dress are too small? That lumpiness is weird.

    Again, that hair style is exactly the way I wear mine when I work out, which makes me think it isn’t red carpet worthy.

    Hmmm…on the fence.

    OUT. And look I think she has fantastic innovative style, but her schellacked on make-up and toxed to frozen face at the age of what 25 kills me everytime. Why does she wear such thick make-up?!

    it’s a kelly osbourne kind of look

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mary-Stone/100001328135240 Mary Stone

    The only reason this is out  for me is the hair, quite frankly.  I agree the top is tight, and I think the “sheer white” nylons also look a bit odd (???) but those things, and the waist/hemline/shoes don’t bug me that much.

    That HAIR, however, is making my scalp itch.  No, no no no no.  beadhead held back from the forehead by tiny headache band should be reserved for private or semi-private moments like working out at the gym/walking the dog/swamping out the toilet only.  Any stylist who allows a client to show up at an opening sporting the bedhead/tiny headache band combo should be compelled to turn in their “professional stylist” card.

    In.  The headband is awful, the shoes are annoying, clutch/makeup bag is odd, nails clash with bag color, and her bra looks painful, especially under that super-tight bodice.  But, despite all that, overall I still like it even though some of the details are off.  Face looks great, like the dress overall, don’t even mind the skirt.

    What I want to know is, when did we start doing the broken-ankle posing again?  Is that something else that’s come back with the Mad-Men obsession?  To me posing with your ankle curving out like that looks more 40s than 60s, but I’m no expert – and either way, it seems painful, and odd considering how much women already torture their feet/ankles for fashion.

No. I am sorry. You are wrong for getting in a kerfuffle about this. She looks effortlessly chic and funky and cool and pretty and since when is a skirt unflattering when it’s below the knee? She doesn’t have kankles or anything. It’s pretty.

    Ugh, SAD, OUT. I’m so SAD. I feel like a dress like this only works if you’re willing to take it to the full Dita von Teese (corsetry included, ladies & adventurous gents), and she is not doing that. I think the shoes would even be fine if she had her head-suit together and, like I said, a corset on. Which, to me, is an argument for why dresses like this should not exist, because NOTHING IS WORTH THAT. Let’s leave our internal organs where they belong and move on to other silhouettes, shall we?

    In. 

    If this were for a premiere of a film she was starring in, then this would be entirely wrong, but I kind of like that she has distinct levels of glamour depending on the event. She’s not the headliner here, so it seems appropriate for her to be less front and centre. The only thing that really needs tweaking is the skirt length, mid-calf is simply unflattering on anyone.

    For all the reasons you said, TLo–and the shoes aren’t just peep-toes with bows; they’re platform peep-toes with bows!–this is an OUT.

    OUT.  I actually like the dress and even the shoes, but the hair is awful and that clutch isn’t helping.

    Like the dress, hate the hair. OUT.

    IN!  Love that skirt length–it  has a fun  early 50s vibe to it, especially with the tight bodice.  Her make-up looks great and the shoes continue the 50s look.  The hair brings the whole look into the 21st century…  (Just so you know, I’ve been watching reruns of “White Christmas” and I love the tea length dresses in that movie.  They make the ankle look so delicate….)

    Disappointed…the shoes look like my sister-in-law and her bridesmaids had on their feet back in October…wedding all the way. The dress definitely seems too tight on the top. Her face looks great though.

    It’s one of those looks where all the minor problems join forces to make it an OUT.

    OUT

    It pains me to say this, but she’s OUT.  The makeup is lackluster and too shiny, the hair looks unfinished, the top — while cute — is WAY too tight, and the skirt is terrible.

    Sorry ERW!

    She looks great! Despite the shoes.

    OUT, but it’s a shame. Different bra and/or looser bodice, “done” hair, and a hem right at the knee and this could have been a great look.

    IN. I don’t like the clutch all that much (rhyming not intentional) but I love the top and the skirt, although it could be shorter, like closer to the knee. Her makeup and hair are lovely.

    OUT! 

    This should be the main star attraction exhibt at the Museum of Modern and Vintage Frump.

    OUT!

    Eh, the only real issue I see is that the skirt length needs to be taken up a few inches. And she’s a little shiny in a couple of pictures. I don’t have a problem with the clutch and the shoes are low-key enough that I don’t find them offensive (in fact I didn’t even notice them until they were pointed out). I consider those pretty minor sins compared to a lot of other things on the RC, and since I figure I should be comparing her to everyone else instead of to her past triumphs, I have to give her an IN.

    OMG. That is exactly how my hair looks…when I pull it back to wash my face every night!  OUT.  Mainly because of her hair and that ill fitted skirt.  I don’t think the top is too tight, I believe it’s her undergarments.

    out.  hair is a mess, dress is too long and not very flattering.  she should really know better

  • Ramona Boersma

    In, but hate her hair. I like many of the shoes that Tlo hates (ankle straps, maryjanes, t-straps, and bows) because I looove retro 40s styles. These shoes are cute. Too bad about the hair.

    I like all of it except her hair. She’s In.

    Funny thing about ERW is that even on her not-so-fabulous days, she’s still 10 times more fabulous than 99% of the population.

    Definite OUT.  The hair is frightening.  And the skirt is not flattering in the least.

    IN – pretty & different, not high waisted, & red was a good choice of color for purse

    In…low key, but lovely all the same.

    In!  She doesn’t always have to be a WERQ.  Very low key but chic.

    out–the shininess and tightness of the top gives it a cheap Forever 21 or Tellos kind of look.

    hate the hair and the shoes, but that dress is fabulous.
