In or Out: Zooey Deschanel in Erin Fetherston

Posted on December 27, 2011

Oh, kittens. Such is the lack of red carpet fabulosity (or even crack-smoking) this week that we are forced to give you a picture of a gal in a white dress and black pumps and ask you to discuss her style.

 

Zooey Deschanel in Erin FetherstonZooey Deschanel attends “The X factor” season finale in an Erin Fetherston dress.

Zooey Deschanel in Erin Fetherston

The dress is about as simple as a dress gets. It’s cute, but we don’t love the uneven hem. You couldn’t wear a sassy pair of red pumps or something, girl? Also, why are you wearing Paz de la Huerta’s makeup? Does she know? Okay, maybe those aren’t the muddy brown shades we’re used to seeing from Paz (who we’re pretty sure uses Duncan Heinz chocolate cake mix for all her makeup needs), but you sure did spackle it on Paz-style. We have to say, we’re happy you’ve toned down the “coalminer’s daughter” hair just a skosh. It was getting a little close to campy there for awhile.

But all of this is just conversation-making while we avoid discussing the one thing we know the kittens will want to discuss above all else: NUDE HOSE, BITCHES. It’s coming back, whether you’re ready for it or not.

Jennifer Morrison’s very tight Stella McCartney dress was voted IN, with quite a few reservations. Namely, that it’s a Stella McCartney dress.

      Can anyone explain me, why are hose “in” or “coming back”? why are they considered a fashion item as opposed to a mere utility garment?

      • MilaXX

        Because a few years back the fashion gods decided that bare legs year round, even in cold weather was the only way to go. Apparently they have now changed their minds and hose are now acceptable?

      She needs to start wearing clothing more in keeping with her age. This dress just looks too childish for her.

        It is a very sweet little dress, but although I don’t think Zooey is buxom, this just looks like her aunty bought her a Communion dress and didn’t know she’d hit puberty.

      In. It could have benefited from colorful shoes or accessories, but the look is fine.  I am totally in favor of nude hose.  I am a middle-aged women who lives in the Northeast – in the summer after a week at the shore, I look fine in a dress without hose, but the rest of the year, my legs need some help.

        I’m middle-aged, and even tho’ I live in the sunbelt, no amount of sun will color my albino legs.  In fact, I think I’m so pale that the sun’s rays just bounce right off me.  Love that hose won’t make me look like an inmate at the local nursing home.

        I think that’s it – this dress has that holiday quality with its little bit of satin in the sash. It’s appropriate. Probably too young for her, but I do think she still looks good (I think her hair looks beautiful too, just bouncin’ and behavin’). 

    • MilaXX

      This is so boring it’s almost hard to tell. I like the dress. It’s cute and it fits the Zoey persona. Hair looks better than it has in a minute, but the makeup is a fail. I don’t even mind the nude hose. I am annoyed by the shoe. It’s a white dress! That’s as close to a blank canvass as you can get. She couldn’t find a red or fiercer shoe of any color? OUT

    • Anonymous

      I know nothing about this person except for what I read here, but something about her just rubs me completely the wrong way. She’s way up there on my irrational celebrity hate list. So yeah, OUT, but more because of who she is than what she’s wearing, though what she’s wearing is incredibly boring.

      Also I am pro-hose. I almost never wear skirts, but when I do it’s always with hose. I was too well trained by my mother to go out without them. I find nude ones kind of boring, but they certainly have their place.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1046681022 Paula Berman

        I don’t like her either, and I think my reasons are threefold: 1. Her voice.  It’s annoying, even though apparently she’s a famous singer as well as an ingenue.  2.  I will never forgive her for “The touch, the feel, of cotton– the fabric of our lives!” 3. She’s just so precious it makes my teeth hurt, in that hipster, ironically Loretta Lynn-haired way.

      For the life of me, I do not understand all this nude hose nonsense.  First and foremost, my grandmother always told me….Hose are for firemen and gentlemen…. ladies wear stockings!!  Wise words, Nana!!
      But really, it’s winter, a woman wants to wear a dress, then a woman needs to wear STOCKINGS to stay warm.  And don’t tell me it’s a trend…. ggrrrr… I love you guys, but really…. this is ridiculous!!!

      • foodycat

        Far be it from me to contradict your grandmother, but some women find pantihose more comfortable than stockings, plus it is hard to find a garter belt that is intended to keep stockings on all day, rather than just for the bedroom. But then, I have never claimed to be a lady.

        …is there a difference between hose & stockings? I’ve always heard the terms used interchangeably, tights are very different, but I’m honestly confused by hose vs. stockings.

        • Anonymous

          PANTYhose and stockings are different, but it is correct to use hose and stockings interchangeably. Hose/stockings have been around for men since at least the 15th century but were not popular for women until the 1920s. Pantyhose became popular in the early 60s after fashion adopted the dancer trick of sewing stockings to underwear to keep them up.

          • foodycat

            I tend to think in modern parlance hose is just short for hosiery, being as how we don’t often look up a girl’s skirt to see if they are stockings or pantihose.

      And, believe it or not, the first thing I noticed (non-fashion maven that I am, but I’m growing thanks to   TLo) was the nude hose. Oh, and what beautiful eyes she has! Other than that, yeah, it looks like a first Communion dress.

    • Anonymous

      I am apparently looking at an entirely different set of pictures than the rest of the bitter kittens, because I think she looks fabulous.  Sure, it’s a lot of hair, but that’s how she wears her hair.  And the dress is certainly youngish, but that’s how she dresses.  It’s adorable and it fits and we can’t see her lady parts or anything personal, so that’s good.  The shoes are not exciting, but they appear to fit and there’s nothing inherently wrong with them.  The nude hose are really the only possible choice here.  And, best of all, look how she poses for the camera – she doesn’t look like she has to pee, no body part is being thrust out unnaturally, no hands in pockets, just a pretty woman standing naturally to have her picture taken.  What’s wrong with that?

        It’s not always 80 degrees in L.A. One of the things that makes the climate agreeable is that it can be hot w/o humidity, and that means the temperature can drop considerably in the evenings. In the winter it can go down to the 40s (and occasionally lower, depending where you are) at night.

      My issue with nude hose is that the range of shades offered doesn’t work for everyone. For instance, fair-skinned Zooey has total ice skater legs.

But this white dress, nude hose, black shoes thing just isn’t doing it for me. She’s so cute that she still manages to look good here – even with several more pounds of makeup than she needs – but from a style perspective, she’s OUT.

      I like the dress, it could be a little longer, maybe about 2 inches.  The shoes are kind of a bore but the dress is a simple look.  Too much makeup or maybe loose the extra sets of eyelashes.  Pretty hair, pretty girl.  I just enjoyed watching her again on Elf.  She needs some jewelry, maybe some bracelets or something or some beaded necklace and push a 2O’s vibe.  The hose?  In theory a yes.  I would want to wear hose with this dress so I don’t feel like I’m out half dressed.  Those hose are not the best but its a start.  I think Michelle Williams would get away with this look easier.

      I don’t like hose, but I will defend celebrites’ rights to wear them with a fiery passion, as having perfectly hairless, veinless, and cellulite-free legs is not actually in their job description.

    • Anonymous

      The dress looks adorable on the model, less so on Zooey.  And it seems a bit too summery for a December event, even in LA.  It’s not a bad party dress but she could have been so much better with some different shoes and killer accessories.  Unless she’s heading out to her job at the bank or a law firm afterwards, those pumps are awful.  Hair and makeup are fine.

      I’ve always hated wearing hose in hot weather and stopped doing so a long time ago.  But this trend of bare legs in the dead of winter was just ridiculous.  I’m glad that sheer nude hose are making a comeback, when seasonally appropriate.  I like to wear dresses year round and sometime black tights just won’t do.

      2. Are kind of ugly anyway. IMHO, Zooey’s legs would have looked better here without them.

      i think part of this particular segment of this particular generation’s identification of cute, if you will, is doing things wrong. i think when they consider it, if they consider it, they consider it insouciant, if they think about insouciantness/insouciantitude [neither of which are likely to be words, just consider their use insouciant of me]. otoh, i imagine the current definition of all of the above is a combo of saucy & callow, even if it isnt quite to me. then again, again [there must be another then again in here someplace], it’s not precisely à la mode to know anything these days, is it?

      as an aside, if i note that the very à la mode manic pixie dream girl thing is nothing more than the sign [in the manner of sign -> signifier -> signified] of something thats existed in its exact same form for at least over a hundred years, more, perhaps i will start the yelling now?

      oh, the dress is okay. i’ve already forgotten the shoes. she doesnt actually bother me much, i way prefer her to katy perry. probably always will. the stink of odious emanating from that originally Xian singer just doesnt wipe away that easily. anyway.

      Zzzzzzzzzzzzz. OUT.

      IN. A paler shade of nude would’ve been better, but still, she looks cute. I salute and celebrate the return of hosiery, nude, sheer black, all of it!

    • Alloy Jane

      She sounds like a Muppet and here, she looks like a puppet, so sure.  in.  Because not all Jim Henson creatures dress outlandishly.  Some of them don’t wear clothes at all.

    • Jolene Barnett

      Those contacts make her look possessed. Or maybe she is possessed, and that’s the explanation.

    • Mary McClelland

      So OUT and not just because she annoys me.

      IN. She looks OK. Not great, not bad. So much she could have done to give this outfit some spark. I know not everyone is a fan of the pantyhose. However, I do think most women’s legs look better in a good pair. And what is not to enjoy about criticizing the gals when they  pick bizarre shades of nude pantyhose to wear?

       It’s a cute dress, but couldn’t she have done… something? Anything? Jewelry, a colored shoe, I’d even take something silly in her hair if only she looked festive and not… boring. So boring. OUT.

      I like the hem, but adding that satin sash to that dress made it look like she’s at her first communion. Which I guess fits for her.

      Out. Kinda boring, especially for the holidaze.

      A while ago she did an ad for the Cotton Council. I don’t know if they were her clothes but they did have a kind of vintagey style that sort of suited her. She is such a pretty girl I kind of wonder why she chooses to dress quirky/ugly?

      She is cute but I think she’s pushing the doll thing just a tad too far. OUT!

      I freakin hate this girl and there’s not a thing she can do or a thing she can wear to change my mind. I hate the way she licks (potentially, not having ever seen her lick) stamps. So she’s an out for me before I even look at her. GO AWAY, MANIC PIXIE DREAM POSEUR!!!!

    • Ruth McGivern

      OUT. The nude hose are an abomination and those shoes are so boring I fell asleep before I could finish the post.  Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • Sophie Collier

      The dress is cute but needs something to jazz it up for a red carpet occasion.  Jewelry, sparkly shoes, something.

      I don’t get all the hate – I think she looks cute and is certainly less annoying than a lot of other celebs. Yeah, she can be a little twee sometimes, but for the most part I think she’s pretty down to earth (well, down to earth using the celebrity scale, which goes from One to Kardashian). I do think this outfit is a little boring, but it’s not so bad that it deserves an out. I give it an IN.

      And I always wear nude hose whether it’s in or not – my legs are far too white to be seen without them.

      She’s just so cute. But is it in? Well, it’s not out. Kinda boring and I am frightened of the nude hose.

      OUT.  Way too close to Baby Jane Hudson territory without a trace of humor.

      this is pathetic, no comment. other than to say this is NOT hipster, and she is NOT hipster.

      NO on the nude hose! Gah! My legs feel hot and itchy just looking at them!

      Also, give me back my 9-year-old’s dress, sheesh.

      She is going through a divorce during the holidays but that is NO excuse for wearing an early 20th century undergarment as a dress… Boring mofo shoes too!  OUT

    • Wrenaria

      In! I think she looks super cute.

      And I don’t get all the drama about hose. I have no problem with whether people choose to wear it or not.

    • Anonymous

      I like the dress on her.  I don’t like the shoes–the dress calls for something better than the heavy black pumps.  But at least they’re not putty shoes.

      Therefore, IN.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      In.  Cute dress.  A bit too much eye makeup, but the hair is gorge.  I would have paired the dress with bright fun shoes, instead of black.

    • http://twitter.com/TigerLaverada TigerLaverada

      She seems to naturally gravitate to a little girl/twee look, and she’s getting too long in the tooth for it. OUT.

    • http://summerborn.livejournal.com/ Summer Born

      Ugh, OUT. The dress could have been saved by styling but this is not it.

      OUT. Boring. She did nothing to make the outfit sing.

      Hose!!!! YAY!!!! I don’t get putting bare feet into dress shoes. Sweaty, they stick, they smell. Ugh. Plus, most of us have legs with some flaws. When I was 18 and tan, I didn’t need hose. Now, I do.

      No.

      Ummm, it’s hard to say, but I’ll say it:  in!   And hose are back due to the Duchess of Cambridge.

      It’s fine. Like something anyone could wear. In, as it seems like too much to give it an out. Though those bangs really makes me rethink that decision. . .

      In. This dress needed a little pizazz: a tasteful but eye-catching bit of jewelry, different shoes perhaps but there’s nothing real offensive here.

      Except of course those freaking hose which are out but better than a pair of obnoxious colored tights.

    • Lies L.

      I approve of this outfit – IN. She looks cute and fresh and pretty, and I like the black shoes with the white dress. I want her hair. Also, nude hose are a good good thing.

    • Anonymous

      IN please. She looks fresh and pretty. And I’m all for hose coming back.

    • http://canadiangiftguide.com/ Brittany

      In. She could’ve done more, but I’d wear it.
