In or Out: Meryl Streep in Stella McCartney

Posted on December 14, 2011

What do we all think of Mary Louise here?

Meryl Streep attends the ‘The Iron Lady’ New York premiere and after party in New York City in Stella McCartney.

Stella McCartney Fall 2011 Collection/Model: Karmen Pedaru (ELITE)

Well, we don’t know about you, but we think she doesn’t like posing and that’s why we can barely see her outfit. We also think the top’s kind of cute and interesting and we love the color on her, but the sleeves make her arms and shoulders look 3 times their size. We also think the skirt looks passably fine from what we can tell, and that the real story here is her hair and face, both of which look great. Okay, the hair’s just a little messy, but we like the shape of it.

As you can see, much to discuss. We gave our opinions. Your turn.

 

Vote Now!


IN! She looks fresh-faced and uninterested in your opinions, T Lo!


OUT! Ohhhhh, sweetie. Should’ve stuck with Chris March.

 

Voting on Hillary Swank’s springtime Christmas dress is still open and awaiting your bitchery.

      That is a very problematic fabric to wear. If it’s not cut just right, it makes the wearer look all puffy. Case in point.
      While I j’adore la Streep, I have to give the top an OUT.
      Love the skirt.

        puffy is the exact word i was thinking about. she looks like she is about to turn into a blueberry, the willy wonka way.

        I would have loved to see this styled as it was on the model– no belt, tucked in. Just for a sleeker look, which seems to suit her better.

    • Anonymous

      The top looks great with her eyes, but it’s dangerously blousy and the skirt puts it on a runaway train to frumpsville. I would have like to see the top with a different bottom. OUT.

    • Sara Leigh Merrey

      The top makes her look fat. Not flattering at all.

    • MilaXX

      OUT but just barely. It’s just a matter of proportions. The top would be fine if she was wearing a pencil skirt or well fitting pants, but loose, flowy on top and loose, flowy on the bottom makes her look bigger than she is and shapeless. The blue is a great color, but the look is a fail.

      and yes, Sissy Bear would have hooked her up better than this.

      She looks fat.  Now we all know for a fact that she isn’t, in fact, fat, so the blame doesn’t lie with mallomars and cookies.  No, it’s that evil shirt’s fault.  The belt and pedestrian prairie girl skirt aren’t helping.  OUT.

      The proportions are off here. If you’re going to wear something with that much volume on top you need to swear something slim and fitted on the bottom half. I like the blue on her.

      OUT. Yep, should’ve stuck with Chris March.

      • Anonymous

        Yes, I agree on both counts.  While I don’t like it on the model, it looks better tucked into slim and high waisted pants than worn out as a belted tunic with a skirt.  I also agree about Chris March.  Oh, and OUT .

      And… I’ve still never seen a Stella McCartney that I like. It’s too blousey plus the styling isn’t good – I spy sheer hose with open toe shoes.

      • Anonymous

        I think she’s a designer with some of the least understanding of how a woman’s body should look, including her own (i’ve seen McCartney wear god awful things herself).  She’s just so terribly overrated.  Point me to a flattering Stella McCartney on a celeb (or a model, for that matter!) and I might change my mind.  But only the tiniest bit.

      That top is soooo unflattering that it pushes an otherwise excellent look to an out.

      Unless, that is, that she’s recently gained 35 pounds that do not show in her face & the top is doing a bang-up job of camouflaging them. In that case, she’s in with exclamation points.

      Having no evidence to support the latter, I’ve got to go with out, but I will comfort myself that she looked much better in person!

      This makes me want to give Stella McCartney an out, not Meryl Streep. Is it just me, or do Stella’s clothes seem to be getting uglier all the time? This top w/pants looked frumpy on the model, for pete’s sake. Meryl is gorgeous, but I have to give her an out for this totally unflattering getup.

      No, no, no.  Now keep in mind that Meryl and I are of an age, and she has looked better than I have on every single day of her life. Still — that kind of sheer blouse/blouson thing? Nope. Not for us anymore, Meryl. Not for us.

      Meryl, for the love of all that is holy in this world, WHY won’t you let yourself look pretty?  Do you really think that, to be taken seriously as an actress, you have to go all frumpish all the time?  For your big night at the Kennedy Center, you were Mrs. Calvin Coolidge.  Now you’ve moved on to become Richard Nixon’s secretary.  Not much of a move, girlfriend!

      This is a premiere of your movie, but your hair is a mess–I know, I know; it’s the “I’m too busy and serious to care about how I look!” look, but it doesn’t suit you.  The top makes you look fat, which you are not.  And you are wearing the ultimate frumpy-old-lady accessories: black sheer hose with sandals.  GEEZ!  The apotheosis of frumpitude!

      Christ on a Christmas cookie!  Did all the flamingly positive press you received for your Chris March gown embarrass you?  Did you take a nun-like oath never to look sensational in public again?

      If so, go back on your word.  You won’t go to hell.

      If not, then, *WHAT* is your problem?  Everybody in the world adores you!  LET YOURSELF LOOK PRETTY, DAMMIT, AND YES, I KNOW I’M SHOUTING!

      Out.  As if you couldn’t tell.  She’s out and I’m bummed.

        Seriously. This might be a cute outfit for going shopping, or for a low-key office xmas party, or taking your daughter and her college roommate out to lunch, but not for the goddamned NY premiere of the latest film to get you a likely Oscar nod. If you’re going to scoff at your own fame and status, show up in well-fitting jeans and a kicky poncho and look like you’re having fun with it.

      That blouse is just too blousey.  She looks like she’s been inflated, like a Macy’s parade balloon.  I do like the color, but that’s about it.  I can’t tell if she’s wearing a skirt or gaucho pants.  If it’s a skirt, I’ll say in.  Gaucho pants gets an automatic out from me.

      That unflattering blouse has made the beautiful Meryl Streep look dowdy and matronly.  So this would be an out, except that it’s the premiere of a movie where she’s playing Margaret Thatcher.  I think she’s trying to tone down the glamour, in order to be credible as the Iron Lady.  For that, I’ll give her an IN.

      i’m on the fence.  the color is lovely on her, as well as the hairdo and makeup.  the sleeves would look more flattering if the body of the blouse were fitted.  is she walking with a cane? if so, kudos to her for hitting the red carpet with a smile.

      I have to say OUT on the top, but I must say it does look comfortable.  But is that a fringed/feathered wrap {shudder} she’s dangling along with her bag in her right hand?  It looks like it belongs on a piano.

      But her makeup is lovely, as is her hair.  And she actually looks like a mature woman who is still stunningly beautiful instead of a stretched caricature of herself.  Of course, she won the cheekbone lottery, which never hurts.

      Maybe she’s not wearing Chris March because he was too busy with his show?  I cannot imagine him allowing that to happen, though — he’s worked such wonders for her!

      She is probably one of the finest actors EVER. That said, her fashion sense is atrocious! I didn’t see the Chris March gown (have to look for it ).

          Thank you for those links, magic Link Elf. The contrast is pretty stark, isn’t it. She looks younger, hipper, thinner, cooler x 11 in the Chris Marsh pieces. She should maybe just put him on a retainer. 

          Note:  I’d look as ramrod stiff and uncomfortable as she does if I had to pose for pictures when I went out. But, even her posing looks better in the Chris March dresses. Like she was enjoying herself and felt like $1 mil.

      Streep doesn’t do glam, and she really doesn’t even do “done.”  She does “good enough” when it comes to clothes.  Always has, always will, so you can’t come to her looking for the perfectly put-together appearance.  I figure the blouse was bought new (a great color and an interesting separate she can use over), and the rest are separates from her own wardrobe (whch she is using over).
      I think she has dressed herself and she looks pretty good for a busy 60 something.

      the styling is much better on the model, that top is too light for a patent leather belt. high waisted and effortless is the only way to go with that ensemble. is she not quite thin enough for a high waist such as that? probably. shoulda stuck with chris march/out.

        You’re not alone.  Stella is one of those celebrity children who have a modicum of talent but is treated like a genius because of their famous parents.

        I felt the same way about Paloma Picasso in the ’80s.

          she’s a bit better than paloma picasso. i have a couple paloma picasso things around here, come to think of it. the shoes arent too bad, they look a little like yesterday on this site’s victor & rolf dress, if in navy. heel taps werent very good though.

          anyway, SMcC’s stuff is less stodgily consistent than was PP’s [a lot of PP's stuff looked a lot like a lot of PP's other stuff. you get this way less w/ SMcC]. sometimes, in fact, SMcC has come up w/ interesting work. unfortunately, i think, more when she was at chloé, less now. but, make no mistake, her work is one of the main reasons we have so many weird & confused stabbings at the avant-garde. think of anything in an odd shape w/ peculiar lacing & in some kind of earth tone w/ maybe one slab of pastel or primary color, etc & ect. that long & winding virtual road leads right back to her door.

      Oh honey…no.  Either she doesn’t have gays or they totally hate her.

      The blouse makes the stick thin model look real woman size.

      On real woman size Streep the blouse makes her look like she’s wearing Goldie Hawn’s fat suit from Death Becomes Her

      OUT

      out. Meryl, you’re supposedly/arguably the best actress of a generation, so please god wear a CAMI!!  I do not need to know you have on a patterned bra.

      i wish stella mccartney would stop making clothes.  or at least that people would stop wearing the ugly ones.

      Love the color of the shirt. With it not tucked in, though, the length combined dropped shoulders just make it look like she’s wearing a shirt that’s massively too big for her. Although that said, I don’t think it would have looked age-appropriate on Meryl tucked in (or, in all likelihood, very good on someone who wasn’t a model). A sad OUT this time.

      You know, no matter what she did when she was young, she looked stunning. So it’s ok for her to not look all that nifty in her sixties. She’s real and amazingly talented and that’s what counts.

      How is it that Stella McCartney has a viable business in the clothing industry? Every thing I see of hers is butt ugly and unflattering and the colors are just awful. I know dad has money, but I just don’t see her doing clothes that are lovely or flattering to anyone.

      Out.  That top should be worn tucked into something slim and streamlined.  Not worn over something that would make it bulky.  The sleeves were meant to be the total  focus.  I don’t even know if they are meant to work in “real life,” (like the red carpet is “real life.”)

      Out.  She looks huge (when she’s not) and I’m not sold on the hair and make up.  They look “just okay.”  I know that she’s had some trouble on the red carpet before – are we grading her for effort?

      Going to have to go with OUT. The sleeves are killing me.

      The thing is, the way she’s actually wearing the clothes, the garment (and the hair) look like my mom on her way out to a PTA meeting or CCD or some other try-to-look-like-I-spent-more-than-two-minutes-dressing event. While she looks perfectly *nice*, Streep’s on her way out to a New York movie premiere and after party, and has a team of at least ten people coordinating her look, in all likelihood. It’s not an offense to mine eyes, but it’s an opportunity to dress up, and she’s demonstrated in the past that she can do it right.

      Face and hair are fab, blouse thingy, sort of ok but she’s not selling it. A slimmer sleeve and it might be better. But it’s Meryl I love her, IN

      The top is sooo blue balloon-y. She can’t possibly be out. But…OUT!

    • Noelle Haland

      I love the color and the belt, jewelry, hair and makeup are all nice, too, but I agree that this is not a good silhouette, for her or anyone. Just barely an OUT for me, but she’s still quite lovely overall.

      That top has waaaaay to much volume to it, not just the sleeves but the whole thing.  It works better as shown on the model tucked in but belted (and in a larger size) it just swallows her whole and detracts from her best feature: her face.

    • Aly Light

      Shapeless. Lady has a much better body than that. OUT.

      Eh. She’s gorgeous, but I don’t like the outfit much. I’ve been kind of disappointed in Stella. She’s not as interesting as I would like. She’s in but the outfit is out.

      I don’t rate Miss Meryl on her clothing because she’s above that for me…however, from the neck up she’s luminous…neck down, not so much. She’s not, nor has she ever been a fashion plate sort of person and so this is not unusual for her. I think she should hire Chris March to do her entire wardrobe and be done with it. I also think most people on this earth should stay away from anything Stella McCartney makes.

      Miranda Priestly is not  happy. 
      I’d pay money to hear the immensely talented Ms. Streep read her laundry list, so it pains me to say this looks very unflattering on her. Sigh… out. 

    • Anonymous

      She looks like what she is and has been 4ever:  … An attractive pro. woman in her 60s with no taste in clothes and no idea how to dress herself.  So God Bless Her as she is hardly alone in that.  Stella McCartney hasn’t delivered much of anything attractive or noteworthy in a very very long time now.  Among other things, MS’ stylist, if she had one, should have cautioned her against silly tiny necklaces on necklines that already look very Tammy Faye.   Out.   Hair and make-up look good.  Like Oprah did many moons ago in regard to the Emmys, I would like to see Steep recuse herself from any more Oscars.  She’s been there, done that, and is rapidly going into can’t get enough territory.  

    • http://twitter.com/Merneith Merneith

      If she was just running errands, I’d say she looked great. But for the premiere of her own movie and her latest Oscar campaign, she should have called Sissy or borrowed something from Queen Helen. I like it; it does have a certain, “I’m Meryl Fucking Streep” quality to it – but not for her own premiere. Out.

      It ALWAYS kills me when I remember that her actual style is so far opposite of Miranda’s. I’ll never get over it.

      Out. Honestly, Stella McCartney isn’t much of a designer. She would be no where without her famous dad. What a boring kmart looking outfit. I guess no animals were harmed while designing it or something.

      OUT – the micro pleats on the shirt, coupled with the boxy shape and wide sleeves make her look wider than she is, having it over the trou plus belted also has the effect of adding pounds/bulk.  Even allowing for the fact that the model is probably a size 0, it works on the model in part because the shape at the waist/hips is smooth and form-fitting.

      It”s fine. But not good. Hate the purse. But yes, the real story is why does someone who is 63 look like that? I know she takes good care of herself but for the love of Mike, is there something she is using that the rest of us can know about?
