In or Out: Katherine Heigl in Hervé L. Leroux

Posted on January 25, 2012

We’re ready to offer our services to Katherine. We don’t normally put it out there like that, but this was such a missed opportunity for her that we fear she requires an intervention.

 

Katherine Heigl attends the “One for the Money” premiere in New York City in an orange asymmetric Hervé L. Leroux gown paired with Sethi Couture earrings.

If she just looked like crap, we’d be all, “She looks like crap!” and leave it at that. But this is half of a good idea. The dress is simple, but it’s dramatic as hell (even if it’s too tight in the bust). So what’s the problem? Everything north of the neck. We think it’s fair to say that she’s sporting DIY hair and makeup. We hope she is. Because if she paid someone to do that, we can tell her she could have gotten the same effect for free by sampling eyeshadows and lipsticks at a makeup counter. And is it a trick of the light or does it look like she just stopped with the lipstick halfway through applying it? The left side of her mouth just sort of … peters out. Basically, she looks like she got a phone call halfway through her makeup routine.

No, what she needed here was full-on drag queen glitter face. That’s a dramatic dress and it requires dramatic hair and face to go with it. You picked a good dress, girl, but you didn’t stick the dismount.

 

Vote Now!

 

IN! She looks great! WOMEN AREN’T DRAG QUEENS, you gays! I mean “guys!” “You GUYS!”


OUT! Drag it up, girl! You’re a movie star, aren’t you?

    Wow. I did not get the memo that she is still relevant.

      She’s playing a chick-lit icon in One for the Money this year and contemplating a quick trip back to Grey’s anatomy.  (The memo was probably entertainment Weekly or People though, so if you didn’t get it, Brava on your reading choices.)

        I don’t think this movie and a ‘contemplation of a quick trip back to Grey’s Anatomy’ does not make her relevant. Her career has long died and now being desperately revived. Kudos to her agent. (And yes, the memo was probably that, but that does not mean you can judge my reading choices.)

        Gotta say, I’m always surprised when women adopt the term “chick lit,” created by men to denigrate books written by women and/or featuring female lead characters.  Because you never hear men refer to westerns or action novels or detective novels featuring male protagonists as dick lit.  Just something to think about.

        • Anonymous

          Point taken.  Even worse, I have been known to use it in the pejorative despite the fact that I’ve read 1-17 of the books (they are great airplane reads.)

            HAHAHAHAHA!  I love the Stephanie Plum books my own self!  And I’ve read quite a few of them on airplanes!  I appreciate your response to my comment.  I really despise that chick lit, chick flick stuff. 

        • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

          You’re absolutely right, and I’m guilty of it. I also use “chick films”. I reserve those terms for the crappy books and movies, although that’s not much of a defense.

          I’ve heard “lad lit” used for books like High Fidelity, but it hasn’t caught on the way “chick lit” has.

          I was not familiar with the term (I don’t live in the US). Is the woman emphasis the only element, or does it need to qualify as “light” or “girly” or something of the sort? I mean, could The Bridges of Madison County or Anna Karenina be “chick lit”?

          Oh, and I think we could and well should use the term dick lit. It suits Fast&Furious and all that cr..  to perfection.  

          • Anonymous

            I’m not sure how it got started, but it has been used to describe even the likes of Barbara Kingsolver, so it’s now a general put-down term for anything written by a woman.  I’m sure that V.S. Naipaul uses it all the time and to describe everyone from Doris Lessing to George Eliot.  I’ve been using the term “dick flick” for years.  And every man who has heard me use it has expressed dismay and said it is much more insulting than “chick flick.”  Which more or less proves the point, I think.

          • Anonymous

            I love it. I’m starting to use it.

            I feel there is a difference in the offense level, because I bet you yourself admit that sometimes you watch a “chick flick”; and it is very easy for them to demean “artsy” movies because of being woman-targeted . But men feel so macho and proud when they go to their monster truck/ginormous boobs flicks, and saying you find them dumb certainly won’t help you.     

          • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

            Interesting.  I wouldn’t have thought that would be insulting either — most of my favorite movies would fall into the “dick flick” category, yet somehow I find it not at all problematic to my femininity.

            I believe that it entered the zeitgeist when Bridget Jones’ Diary came out. That is considered the first “official” chick lit novel.

      She is starring as the popular character Stephanie Plum in the movie adaptation of Janet Evanovich’s beloved “One For The Money.” Personally, I find her poorly cast for the part, and not that good in general, but there you have it.

        Yeah, they needed someone grittier who doesn’t exude so much California. Unless she manages to find her inner Snooki, KH doesn’t seem like the right fit.

        • aimee_parrott

          Total agree — she’s way too California to be Stephanie Plum.  They needed a Debi Mazar type.  Someone who can rock big hair and an attitude, and yet still be attractive enough that you believe she could attract both her cop boyfriend and the hot bounty hunter.

        I thought that too, but have to say that having seen the trailer, I’m rethinking my initial reaction.  I don’t care for her as an actress, but the trailer does look pretty good and she is playing the part well.

          I have no hope. This film was scheduled to be released last summer — that it was then dumped into January, traditional dumping month for studio dogs, bodes no good.

          I blame Heigl, who has never yet been able to make me laugh, yet, in any “comedy” in which she stars.

          January dogs — and other unfunny comedies — traditionally throw their one or two only laughs into the trailer.

        Thank you!! She is not right for this part at all.  (Of course, I have an irrational dislike of her anyway.)  And my first thought was in, but it makes her shoulders look like a football player so I’m giving her an OUT.

        She cast herself in the role by buying the movie rights and refusing to allow it to be made with another actress in the role.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        When I read the books I saw Lauren Graham (from Gilmore Girls) as Stephanie; Queen Latifah as Lula and Scott Patterson (again from Gilmore Girls) as Joe.  I couldn’t really decide upon anyone for Ranger.  Apparently Lauren and Scott didn’t get on that well but it sure resulted in some fabulous chemistry!

      • Anonymous

        I disagree. She does a Stephanie-type character all the time– good looking, busty, goofy, clumsy, put upon by family/friends, roll with it type of comedienne.  

    • MilaXX

      she’s got a movie coming out based on a very popular series of books. I’m not listening to the Grey’s talk because as far as I can tell it’s just very public begging for her job back and I hope Shonda Rhines chooses to ignore it.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t know, I think she looks pretty good. The dress fits well, the color is great on her, and her skin looks amazing.

    I think the biggest problem is that her hair is too light, so her face just sort of fades into her hair. I might have reversed the makeup and done a more dramatic eye and a more neutral lip, just to avoid the top half of her face fading away like that.

    I’ll vote In because more is right here that isn’t.

      Actually, is it just me or do the pink complexion and yellow hair clash?

      • Anonymous

        I think that’s it.  I was thinking that her skin tone and hair color might make makeup challenging, but I think you’re dead on.  It’s that her hair and skin tone are working against each other a bit, making her makeup look a but off.

        You nailed it, Anathema and Ms Flyover.  Who is out in Hollywood making all these women go platinum blond (talking to you, too, Cameron)?  Certain hair colors were never meant to go withh certain skin tones, but none of these actresses seem to have figured that out.

      • MilaXX

        She sometimes goes a bit too blonde and when she does it clashes against her skintone. Also the makeup is a bit too pancaked making the clash even more noticeable.

      Agree. I think in all objectivity she looks pretty good and can carry a dramatic dress.
       But that hair is a mess. Here it’s the color, which I also think should be darker, but when she wears it down the cut is also quite bad. Also, I would like to have shifted the interest up onto the eyes, with less red lips. 

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      Agreed on all points. It’s not a resounding IN but it’s so very close as to not be an out. Quarter inch more room in the bodice would have made so much difference.

  • Susan Crawford

    Is there something going on in the make-up industry that I’ve missed? Because recently, I keep noticing more and more stars, starlets, models and even mere mortal women sporting super-shiny faces. I don’t mean lovely, glowing, translucent faces. I mean faces that look as though a spritz of Pam cooking spray was applied. OK, maybe some of it is reflection from flashbulbs, or poor lighting on the carpet, but still – it does nothing but make the wearer look sweaty or unfinished. And orange lips? NO!

    But overall, I think Ms. Heigl looks pretty glam in this killer dress, so she gets an IN.

    IN.  I love the dress so much that I’m willing to forgive a lot.  Her figure looks stunning!

    OUT.   Her upper body proportions look weird and the strap is causing it at worst or not helping at best.

    IN. She looks good in the dress. TLo’s criticisms  are spot on. This could have been a WERQ.

    I dunno. I think she looks pretty good. Maybe a little shiny, but the hair and makeup aren’t shockingly bad IMO.

    In. That dress is amazing, but I totally agree with the half-lip deal going on with the lipstick.

    She never puts enough effort in her hair/makeup, so why put effort emoting about it?

    Out. The dress is great but the colour is the wrong shade. Or maybe it’s just her makeup.

  • Sara__B

    In. It’s a nice gown and she looks good in it. (But I still can’t imagine her as Stephanie Plum.)

  • CQAussie

    I think she looked OK here.  The dress is a bit tight but I like silhouette on her.  Her make-up could be less harsh but it’s working OK.  Her hair looks kinda crap from certain angles but overall, it looked soft and pretty.  I’m giving her an IN.

  • Joyce VG

    The dress is great and makes her look so skinny. It is tight in the bust and hips and that makes me wonder if she can breathe.  Her face always looks shiny in pics.  I give her an IN because she’s trying to redeem herself in celebrity-dom and good luck to her.

    Srsly, I think you guys are high on crack today. This one is a total IN for me, and I don’t see the flaws in the make-up, only bad lighting for a picture. Love the hair! And I am a Heigl-hater to boot.

    I love the dress, but you’re right. DRAG IT UP, GIRL! Still, I’m going to give her an “IN” because the dress is great and because there are a lot of mean bitches saying not-nice things about her. It’s OK, Katherine, dear … I’m here for you. (Unless you screw up Stephanie Plum.)

    A hesitant ‘in’ from me.  Diva-ified hair would have made this a solid winner.

    Cannot stand the hair at all. Well, cannot stand her, to be honest, but all personal opinions aside… that hair and makeup really is just plain awful. The dress really does look great, though.

    IN, with some reservations.  I think I’m one of the rare people that actually really like Ms. Heigl, but I think people are spot on with the hair color.  It needs to be a little darker to contrast with her skin tone.  My first reaction was, “wow, she looks great!”, but with more critique, it’s completely the hair color that’s bugging me.

  • Anonymous

    I love the dress, but I don’t think that color looks good on her. Also do not like her hair color. All points on the hair style and makeup I also agree on so despite my love for the dress, she gets a OUT. Not a strong out but out nonetheless.

  • Anonymous

    In, though I don’t think orange is her color.  I think the dress shape is fabulous.  If that’s her own handiwork on hair and makeup, I could use a lesson.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t think everything north of the shoulders is terribly egregious (is that blue eye shadow?), and I applaud her use of color.

    In.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t like this look, but it’s not bad enough for a full on OUT. I give it a small IN. Dress looks good on her, but the makeup is just wrong. I’ve seen woman to red lips with a red dress and look good, hell, I’ve seen woman match a purple or lavender lip with the dress. Somehow this shade of red orange lip with the dress just looks garish. I think I would have preferred a dramatic eye with neutral lip. I also think the hair is aging and stiff looking. Still I’ve seen her look worse, so I’m willing to cut some slack, but just barely.

  • http://twitter.com/mcglory13 mcglory13

    The dress is giving her a side boob, and the hair is just… anyway. As I always say on these things, she [fill in random actress] is so damn pretty whatever she wears, but this is an out.

  • Anonymous

    IN, but that haircut is so aging. Is she the reincarnation of Lana Turner or what?

  • Anonymous

    That dress is amazing!   Yes, she could have pumped up the volume as far as hair and make-up are concerned, though I wouldn’t go so far as to recommend “full-on drag”. 

    Overall, though, an IN!

    The dress is cool, the face is not, and she should not be playing this role. Two out of three says OUT.

    I don’t think the bust is too tight…looks to be perfectly snug to me.  Her missing lipstick…idk, could be just an illusion. The dress is simple, elegant and a it’s a good color on her. I really dislike that hair color on her. She could have used a sparkly bangle too.   Also, why is her face so red and shiny…just come from the gym?

    I’m just not seeing what you guys are seeing, I think she looks great here.  The lipstick issue is just a lighting/flash issue and her hair is pretty, not my favorite but pretty enough.  She doesn’t have a “drag queen” persona or face, she’s just a pretty girl.  IN from me.

  • oohsparkley!

    I think her makeup looks fine.  It’s the old lady hair that bothers me.  I think she needs something around her face – longer hair.

  • Renee Thomas

    In. she looks better than she has in ages.
    However, agree with TLo’s concerns. Also, that dress is too fancy for a premiere. Cocktail-length would be more appropriate.

    Wrong shade of red for her coloring – too orange.  If she’d had the right shade on, the hair and makeup wouldn’t have looked so off.  Katherine needs to understand that if your skin has blue undertones like hers does, you can’t wear the warm version of these colors.  A more burgundy shade of red would have worked and she’d have looked sensational.

    I don’t think she looks that bad–I say IN. It’s a pretty great dress and she tried to be classically Marilyn-esque with the hair; it’s an understandable look to go for. Admittedly the makeup is nothing special, but I disagree that this dramatic dress called for a dramatic face–I think that would be too much

    She annoys me, but the dress looks great on her and the color works. Sadly, although I think she looks good as a blonde, she needs to dial it a few shades down. Better makeup would help too. Still giving her an IN. To repeat a previous commenter, the dress is doing all the work.

    I also hope that she didn’t do her own makeup because it appears as though she’s wearing a TON of foundation — it doesn’t look blended in well at all. Or there’s a lack of powder or bronzer or something. It is really aging. (Or, she just has too much makeup on – - but my guess is most of these people wear gobs of makeup that just is applied better on the red carpet.) Maybe she’s wearing mineral makeup – which reflects back the flash? I don’t know. I cannot get over it.
