In or Out: Drew Barrymore in Ports 1961

Posted on January 26, 2012

We love Miss Drew for never losing sight of her hippy-dippy side, especially when she finds a way to express it and still look chic.

 

Drew Barrymore attends the screening of “Big Miracle” in Washington, DC in a Ports 1961 dress.

Ports 1961 Pre-Fall 2012 Collection/Model: Andie Arthur

Are we alone on this one? We realize it’s slightly off the beaten path of the red carpet, but we think it’s really striking and we love that she took the risk. We keep going back and forth on whether it needed some detailing, like a belt, or a bold cuff, or even some sort of pendant or eye-catching necklace. But no, we like the fact that she only punctuated it with a big ol’ pair of hoops. The one downside to this dress is that she’s a shapeless column in it and we’re pretty sure Drew’s a little curvier than that. Maybe just a thin belt to define the waist was called for here. Not loving the hair and makeup, although we like the idea behind the former. We just think it could have looked a little more polished. Either way, we salute her for wearing something different and unexpected.

IN! You rock your inner hippy chick, girl!


OUT! I can smell the patchouli from here.

Katherine Heigl’s killer dress and lackluster hair and makeup was vigorously debated by the Bitter Kittens, the slight majority of whom came down on the side of IN.

    I LOVE Drew, but I am not crazy about this on her. I would have liked it shorter – it is too long a column of sameness. I do think there is a cloth belt, but a belt that showed up more would have really broken this up.

      I completely agree.  I liked it when the picture came up but then when I scrolled down.  A short little shift (even if a bit boxy) would be cute with some legs and great shoes, but the boxy shapeless gown doesn’t really flatter her.  OUT (but a good effort star too–she wore color and print and something interesting).

      I agree. She’s a little wider than the model, thus showing more of the print.

    I think this is fabulous. Very Drew and looks great. Also, she looks really happy and pretty, which is always nice.

    It has nothing to do with patchouli – the dress simply does not fit.

    • Judy_J

      That’s exactly what I was going to say.  The dress does not fit her at all.

      I feel like a good bra (or a bra at all) would’ve helped this.

          I don’t think it’s just a matter of a well-fitting bra. The dress needs to be altered to fit her better. Drew’s torso is shorter than the model’s and that means the bodice bunches up at the waist, increasing the bagginess at the bustline. It also needs to be taken in just a hair on either side of the bodice.

            Do you think that is it? My reaction was “has Drew had a reduction… or is the print just swallowing her breasts”. I don’t think her chest looks bad, it just seems like there used to be more of it.

  • Saoirse Lee

    I quite like it on the model, but as it’s a pattern, each dress is going to look a little different. The placement of the black elements on the model dress give more definition (eg around the neck and waist) than the one Drew is wearing. Her’s looks shapeless and basic, almost like a my-first-sewing-project crossed with a snuggie. 

    • Anonymous

      That’s a really good observation about the print placement. It is very different on the model and explains why I liked it better on the model.

        Amazing the difference 2-4 inches can make.
        Out. Because the print makes me think that the cameras were out of focus.

    The print is just too much. OUT.  This would have worked at a knee length.  I mean, did this busy print really need to be full length…with a train?  

  • Anonymous

    I saw the hippy Drew headline and prepared to yawn but I like aspects of the dress, I just hate that she looks like she has no shape while wearing it.

    This maybe sleep dep talking but I’m going to have to say OUT. She’s been doing this long enough to wear something that actually fits.

  • Anonymous

    Yup a black belt and shorter length to break up some of that dizzying print. There’s just too much of that fabric. So I’m giving it an out. Like the hoops, though.

    Love the color and the risk-taking, but not a fan of the overall effect of the print and the so-so hair and makeup. An unfortunate OUT.

  • Greg Yoder

    She looks a little tired here.  I don’t mean the outfit: she looks like she hasn’t slept.  But on topic: the dress doesn’t fit, and it’s the wrong length.  Out.

    Also, I don’t get the hippy vibe that you boys are getting, though I do think it’d be a cool dress if it were knee length (and fit).

  • MilaXX

    IN! I like this and I think it was a smart move to keep the accessories simple with such a busy print. I even like the hair and makeup with this because I think the print is so big and loud that keeping everything else low key was a smart move.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I love Drew, but I have to say “out” here–the hair is awful, and I don’t share your fondness for the dress, which looks like PR had an evening gown challenge where they had to use materials bought in the Army surplus store, and Drew decided to wear one of the also-rans.

    This… is not her dress.  I, too, love that she took the risk, however, this dress makes her look thick in the waist, and horribly short.  The print is too big, it makes her entire body look blurry except for her face, which is a very odd effect, to say the least.  If it had been a smaller print, maybe half this size, and shorter (say, knee-length or just above) it would have worked much better, given her better shape and not made her look so short.

    I have to say OUT on this one.

  • http://twitter.com/OracleKath Kathrine Marlow

    It’s striking and different, softer hair would have made it more for me and about 2 inches off the hem so we can see the shoe.  Still IN for taking the risk and looking like herself :)

    It’s way too odd around the waist.  On the model, the prints line up and offer definition, on Drew… they definitely don’t and it makes the dress look way too.. wonky.  Out.

    I love Drew, always have, always will.  But that is one hiddy dress.  I wouldn”t describe it has hippy chic at all, it’s more camo than anything.  And all that weird ayering and wrapping(?), WTF?  Totally shapeless and dull to me.  Poor Drew……

  • Anonymous

    I’m not reading this as hippy at all, unless you’re saying the print looks like tie-dye (and maybe the big hoop earrings).  The print looks more like a runny, inky houndstooth to me.  Don’t like it at all, its color combo, or how much of it there is.  I have to give this an OUT.

    Interesting dress, and I think I see where she was going with this.  Too bad she didn’t have it altered to fit.  The fit in the bustline is wonky, and the overall appearance is that it’s a size too big.  The version on the model is more fitted, and improves the look of the dress immesurably.  Gotta say OUT on this one.

  • Anonymous

    I like the concept of hippy dippy, but this dress just doesn’t work.  Doesn’t fit well  and the print is ugly.  Maybe if her hair was down or looser, it would add to the hippy dippy and make the look better.

    They’ve done something at the waist.  On Drew, the pattern kinda cuts off at an angle just above her hips;  on the model, the pattern is continuous.  I would like to see a shorter – knee length – version of this dress.  And a belt.

    But Drew is so cool,  I give her an IN.

    • Anonymous

      Nope, on the model, there’s still a cut on the dress at the waist- where you see the tiny white triangle. It might even cut at the same spot on Drew, but of course her waist isn’t the same as the model’s.

    Drew looks great, the print of the dress however is competing with everything around it.  The model is photographed in front of a plain gray wall, so the print stands alone, poor Drew stands in front of a billboard of shameless advertising. Really these sponsors need to take it down a notch.

        Aesthetically I tend to agree with the idea of sponsor overkill on the background but one of the sponsors (the little red icon) at this event is a non-profit called TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) that does amazing work helping to support families of the fallen military.  Their founder, Bonnie Carroll, is played by Vinessa Shaw in the movie and her husband Tom is played by Dermot Mulroney.  Tom was killed in ’94 and Bonnie used her personal loss to create TAPS and reach out to others.  My fiance was killed in Iraq 4 years ago and the other survivors I met through TAPS helped me tremendously.  I am so glad TAPS is getting exposure and Bonnie and Tom’s story is being told in the film!

          I totally get your point of view, Erin, and may I say that I am so very sorry for your loss.

          one of the sponsors (the little red icon) at this event is a non-profit called TAPS 

          And, of course, that icon is so small you can’t even make out what it is!  

          You know, though, I wonder if that’s why she chose this dress.  As I said in an earlier post, it really does remind me of camouflage, so perhaps she was making a deliberate nod to the military.

    I think that the problem is that the dress is poorly fitted. On the model, it gives her a shape.  On her, it’s tight in all the wrong places and makes her look like a shapeless column.  A belt might have helped, but I think that nothing can solve the poor fit problem.

    I’m on the fence. I like the dress, but it needs better fitting, and it looks like her spanx is cutting into her sides below the waistline which is unfortunate. Add a cuff to the hoop earrings, and a high waist spanx, less bunching through the midriff… oh, I’m gonna have to give her a good try, but OUT on this one.

    Wow, I REALLY want to like this, but I’m not sure it’s working. It does make her look shapeless, and it’s weird in other ways I’m having a hard time putting a finger on.

She gets massive points for trying this out, but I think I tip, just barely, to OUT on execution.

    On a non-model body it doesn’t work.  A model with a coat-hanger body can stand and move without a dress bunching up.  They wear the dress for just a few minutes.  Drew is more like a “real woman” so this dress, while being a good idea in theory, just doesn’t work in practice.  From the shoulders up she looks great and I applaud an attempt to be different but this is OUT.

    I love Drew and I love prints, but not this one.  Out.

    you’re not alone ~ totally IN, but it would’ve been WERQ-worthy if she’d paired it with one of those gold stephane roland belts from yesterday.

    She looks good and I also hate it at the same time. Am I the only one who sees camouflage?

    I like it, it has a very relaxed and comfy chic, but it’s bagging through the waist. I will never understand why – if your JOB is to wear dresses and look nice – it’s so hard to find one that fits or have it altered.

    I like “hippy dippy” Drew…hopefully she’ll never get completely on that “beaten path”.  ;) 

    This does need a belt or some bling….somewhere.  I’d like to see a gold chain belt with a long dangle. 

     That backdrop seriously clashes with the dress though…as the backdrops so often do. They’re obnoxious.

    I love her, she makes me happy when she shows up. I like this a lot but I agree with you that it could really have used a belt or a pendant. The hair is too flat but her face is gorgeous and that dress is really cool (although it flattens her boobs). With a few more details it could have been a WERQ.  I say IN, because it’s definitely not an out.

    “shapeless column” that’s what she looks like.  I adore Drew but OUT.

  • Anonymous

    IN . Not perfect, but I love it. Unlike others I like the length, and while there is a kind of a column effect, I still think she looks great (especially in the second pic). A black belt or something in the middle definitely would have helped. Of course I’d give her an IN if she was in pjs.

    I like Drew. But the dress is a shapeless column. It looks like they did something strange below the waist  and ended up slicing the white doves in half which gives the dress less of a waist than the one on the model. Since this isn’t something Drew could do anything about I’ll give her an IN.

    IN!  I love that she has a unique sense of style that fits her personality – it’s a refreshing change from all of these actresses who look the same on the red carpet.

    Love her and love her style. The dress is perfectly Drew, but I agree that a belt might have been a good idea here. I get why she put her hair up, but it could have looked a little less laundry day. Still, she gets a IN from me for dressing with such personality.

    Oh, IN! I think it’s so striking. And she’s lovely.

    IN! I agree that a skinny belt would have been nice–maybe black, nothing attention-grabbing. Just for the shape.

    I’m not sure what she should have done differently with the hair–if it were down I feel like the hippie thing would be too literal? But I don’t love this, either. Confusion.

  • Cathy S

    Oh no. She looks like a long rectangle. The dress has some shape on the model, but Drew’s got no waist or anything much at all in this. Out.

    As has been a problem for Drew in the past, she needs a MUCH better fitting bra.  Unfortunately, I have to give her an out.

    I would really like this if it fit her through the midsection. The poor fit just makes her look boxy. I like the restraint in avoiding too literal 60s jewelry. Nice try, but OUT.

    In for sure!

  • Toto Maya

    It doesn’t fit right, it looks baggy and it’s pooling around her. She’s lost in it. If it fit her curves better it would be good.

  • Nora Mulllin

    It’d be stunning if it fit her properly. It looks like some good darts would have taken this from shapeless to gorgeous. She’s too pretty to be in crappy fitting clothes.

    Definitely IN.  I would have gone with a more important earring but like the thought process, and don’t mind the hair.  Beautiful dress.

  • kjthorp

    I love this!! YAY!! She isn’t one of those same old, same old starlets. She is far more interesting and exciting.
    Thank you Drew!

    I think she’s an IN.  But only barely.  The dress doesn’t do good things for her figure.  I like the hair and makeup and the minimal jewelry was the right place to go, with that big pattern.

  • Anonymous

    As all BKs have said, it doesn’t fit.  Still, IN.

  • butter nut

    she looks like she’s wearing a bed sheet.  i love drew, love the concept of the dress.  it should be chic.  but in reality, it looks cheap.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/VWVJVYZJCTXSQJA4E5PNEZLJA4 Jessica

    Compare where the model’s bustline sits (under a dark part of the pattern) and where Drew’s is.  Now I know the model may be half Drew’s age, but I can’t help but think that a better undergarment would have helped Drew make the most of this look.

  • Anonymous

    In, but probably wafting in on the fumes of my love for her for playing with fashion.  The overall impression is a shade on the dowdy side, which more polished hair & makeup could have fixed.

    If she was wearing a belt and had better hair, I’d say in. As is, though, I have to say OUT.

    The gown just doesn’t look very flattering to me, and the hair, makeup, and hoops come across as more chola than hippy-fabulous. OUT.

    I have to go with OUT.  The fabric makes me think I need glasses. I’m wearing m glasses. Her hair looks like a wet weed.  Shapeless. Like some old camoflage fabric that ran in the wash with a seam up the side.

    OK, I had never heard of this designer but I checked the collection out and I LOVED every single piece. So much that I wished I were made of money because I’d buy everything. Amazing. I will be visiting their store the next time I’m in NYC. Thank you, TLo, for the link and please blog the next collection. :D

    Agreed on all the suggestions–perhaps a small gold belt to define her waist, slightly different makeup (although I love the lip color), maybe a thick gold cuff– but all around, I like it and I heart Drew, so: IN.

    I like the dress but the fabric pattern is giving me a “Magic Eye” effect.  I keep looking for the hidden 3D picture & it gives me eyestrain.

    Honestly, that print is the absolute worst. It makes me want to punch my tv and then go buy new glasses. Out.

    The more I look, the more I see wrong with it in the details, but it is still pretty good, style-wise. I would say IN, since I cannot quite say OUT.

    Empirically I love the dress. It just has some fit issues around the bust/waist, namely because she is too short for the sample. Also, I think I would like it a lot better at cocktail length. I think I’m going to give her an IN though because it’s different, it’s a great pattern, and she is having fun in it!

    Girl, no. Shapeless houndstooth column.  The color is the only part I like.  OUT.

  • Lisa

    I just love this on her – it’s so HER!  I think with a print that busy, she doesn’t need too much jewelry – I think the hoops are enough; maybe a gold cuff bracelet, but certainly no more than that.

    I do love her hair – it shows off the earrings, and it’s best to keep it chic and simple with that print.  The bold lipstick is awesome because it keeps her face from being just lost in the dress.

    First it looked like pajamas…..then it looks like a big camo hunting outfit….now it looks like an unconventional houndstooth pattern….I don’t know what to make of it…..but the more I look at it, the more I like it.  IN!  But don’t ask me why…

    I’m a sucker for a graphic print column dress.  If the print is fabulous and the dress fits the wearer well then in my book it doesn’t matter if the wearer is a shapeless column of print. .

    She looks fabulous.  I would wear it.

    I like the concept but the execution falls short for all the reasons others have already stated (fit, bra, deployment of pattern.) I was going to say, a more angled position to the camera wouldve helped but then I see the one shot where she is angled and the uplift and tailoring issues become even more obvious. So….regretfully, cos I like her…OUT
