In or Out: Gabrielle Union in Emilio Pucci

Posted on February 15, 2012

Miss Gabrielle would like to remind you all…

Gabrielle Union attends the Clive Davis and the Recording Academy’s 2012 Pre-GRAMMY Gala and Salute to Industry Icons Honoring Richard Branson in Emilio Pucci.

… that she is sex on a stick, with sprinkles on top.

Now, this is a Grammys party, and thus, not a place where one would have to worry about offending anyone’s delicate sensibilities, but that sure is a lot of … Gabrielle showing, no? “Sexy” was obviously Job One for this dress, but that doesn’t mean “classy” or “elegant” need to be disregarded. We’d probably like this a lot more if the slit was to the side instead of running straight up the middle, like a curtain parting on her business. And side cutouts never look good on anyone. There. We said it.

We think Gabrielle would look amazing in some different white, skin-baring gown, because this one is kind of awkward and not as sexy as it’s trying to be. Heterosexual men reading this (all 6 of them) just fell over laughing. But guys, we tend to go for more in our fashion analysis here than “Do I want to have sex with her? Check one: Yes.  No.”

 

Vote Now!

 

IN! DAMN, Woman!


OUT! Harlot! Strumpet! Get thee behind me!

Christina Hendricks’ UNsexy secretary look was voted OUT by the minions, as was Florence Welch’s too-busy dress matched with a not-busy-enough face. You bitches were cranky yesterday.

Oh, and speaking of cranky, it appears we won’t be able to catch up on some of our TV blogging until later in the week. RuPaul, Glee, Walking Dead, and Revenge are all going to be sporadically blogged, so keep checking back, but we may need to wait until we’re home from Fashion Week and snuggling with our poor, neglected cats, watching TV on the couch.

Damn, that sounds good right about now. You will eventually get all your T Lo TV-blogging goodness. Promise.

    Out.  It makes her body look waaaay out of proportion.

    Well, it is sexy, but not trashy at all, and given that this is a Grammies after party, it was probably demure and classy.
    Given the context/attire ratio, I say IN

      I agree, anywhere else it would be OUT, but at any grammy related event this dress is practically demure.

    Out!  She is a beautiful woman, but this dress is doing her no favors.  The dress makes her body look a little weird…there is something off with the proportions.

  • http://twitter.com/ohmybears48 Michelle Argento

    I’d normally be all for it, and she looks fab in white, but it looks too loose in some spots and too tight in others. It’s so poorly fitted it looks like one of those toilet paper dresses they make for bridal shower games. Out.

    I’d normally say OUT, but since it’s for the Grammys (and her hair and makeup are divine), I’ll give her an IN

    IN because she looks so great from the waist up.  From the waist down it’s a bit tacky and not really that flattering, but after seeing the photo of Anne V I realize it could be a lot worse.

    There is nothing fashionable about this look.. OUT.

    Hair, face, accessories are FIERCE.  The dress would be fantastic if it was sleek/body-conscious with the slit on the side.  OUT though..the dress detracts from the whole look

      Please explain why her hair is fierce? You aren’t the only person who likes it, but all I see is what my braid looks like after I’ve slept on it for a couple of days. I’m not trying to be snippy–I’m honestly trying to understand what others see. Thanks.

    There’s something about the placement of the slit up the front that makes her look somewhat chunky (which, of course, she isn’t).  I really love the white with her skin tone, and I quite like her hair.  The thumbnail made me think “Wow…pretty!”, but the actual design of the dress with the silly cut-outs (I agree that they don’t look good on ANYONE that I’ve seen wear them so far) and the oddly placed slit undoes the prettiness of the dress.  If I were voting waist up, it would be a big “IN”, but with the rest of the dress factored in, I’d have to vote “OUT”.

  • MilaXX

    small OUT, I typically see her as more the girl next door type. This dress seems like a cry for attention or an attempt to upgrade an image and it’s not working for me. Feels completely unsexy.

  • Sam Corbett

    She literally does not age, but this is a big mistake. The slit shows off the worst angle on her legs, and the braid is incredibly awkward.  She’s always had that hair, and if it’s natural, it’s the worst possible use of it, and if it isn’t, it calls attention to the fact that it isn’t.

    She’s incredibly beautiful and has a hot younger boyfriend, so I doubt she cares about what the internet says about her, but babe… you can do better!

  • http://smalltownbigwardrobe.wordpress.com Catherine

    If the skirt went straight down, total IN. However, I abhor mullets, whether they be skirt, shirt or hair. OUT.

    That dress drapes on her like a toga in a frat party, and that weave is not helping class it up either. OUT.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    Out. To my eye, it looks as though that front slit was never meant to be worn open in that way.  The draping along the opening is a telltale that it was meant to be worn closed.  Awkward and overdone.  Honey we GET that you’re hot. Really, we do.

    • Anonymous

       Good eye! It looks like when I “adjust the fit” by using a safety pin. Just not quite right.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

         Yeah, I think the skirt fronts have been folded under and tacked up inside.  That’s what’s creating those weird folds right about knee level.

  • http://shootingshoes.wordpress.com Amanda Gun

    I feel like the hip cutouts could be sliiightly better placed; at the moment it’s like they can’t quite decide whether they want to be waist or hip cutouts and it’s not as flattering to her shape as it could be. However, since 1. I’m checking yes, 2. I love her shoes, and 3. she’s looking fierce, I’m going to give this an IN!

    PS. I’ll probably be updating like every 10 minutes to see if the drag race post is up yet, but I get it. Take your time :)

    I don’t think she’s showing too much skin – compared to some of the minidresses that get worn, the front actually doesn’t even come up THAT high. It’s WHICH pieces of skin she’s showing. There aren’t that many women who really benefit from highlighting their inner thighs (who aren’t supermodels, anyway). Gabrielle Union is not one of those favored few, although she’s gorgeous otherwise, and the rest of the dress works fine in my opinion. Anyway, OUT.

    I like the idea of it, and she IS a sexy piece… but this dress is just not flattering. OUT

    OUT.

    It’s not bad, but that could just be my general love of Ms. Union kicking in. I think the dress either needs to commit harder to the bare sides (which don’t read to me a cutouts, but rather as deliberate gaps in the draping) or needs to cover them up. This is sort of pulling the punch, so to speak. I agree with TLo that the slit would be more graceful to the side.

    But what really moves it into OUT territory is the hair. I assume that’s a weave, so there’s no excuse at all for the ends sticking out all over the braid.

    hot, but OUT

    out.  for all the reasons.

    I agree that the slit up the front looks nasty, but I still think she looks hot and together overall. So I’m giving her an IN just to be contrary.

    I’ll be glad when cutouts have had their moment and go away again.  She is a beautiful, beautiful woman but OUT.

    I super-lurve her look (the braid! the long sleeves!)…..down to mid-thigh. That slit is too high, girl. OUT.

    I am developing an irrational hate of cutouts and overly sexy dresses, especially after the travesty of seeing Rihanna being awarded Best Dressed for the Grammies on this week’s Fashion Police. OUT.

    Out, cut outs need to be stamped out

    I’ma say out, for the reasons you stated, but I think her hair looks gorgeous.

    Skanky as hell. She is stunning in white, but this look makes her look cheap. P.S. I am one of your 6 straight straight readers :P

    OUT. Toga that went wrong. Rolled in bed sheets.

    It’s a bed sheet draped sluttily over each shoulder. OUT

    top half IN, bottom half, not so much. I wish there was a view from the back. And I wish that doesn’t look as pervy as it made me feel to write it.

    Agree on the front slit – yuck.  Side cut outs seem to work on the skinny girls (like Gweneth) better than on the curvy ones, so, NO.

    Looking forward to your recaps as much as the cats are looking forward to your homecoming.

    out  it makes (even) her look thick

    OUT.  So freaking hate the scraggly braid, uneven and ultimately unsexy dress.  Get some support for those tah tahs woman!

    Yikes! OUT!

    She is serving up fierceness, IN.

    Out.  It looks cheap, like something you could order from Frederick’s of Hollywood.  Gabrielle, you deserve better.  However, I love her hair like that.

    I am a Gabrielle Union fan, but damn, this is straight up OUT.

    Isn’t she too old for this?  Sloppy and hoochie at the same time.

    Way OUT. Her body is far better than this dress would have us believe.

  • Anonymous

    Total total total OUT.

    She’s IN…the dress is out.  She looks fabulous and she pulls of the dress nicely, but just don’t like the dress. The dress would have sunk a lesser diva, but not Miss Gabrielle. WERQ, Honey!

    I really like this! I think I would have liked it more if the slit was up the side instead of weirdly in the middle, but she gets an IN. 

  • oohsparkley!

    Her pose is odd.  I think if she had posed better, it would look better. In. Changed my mind – I don’t like the way that slit hangs open. Out.

    I wish it was a smidge shorter but I think she looks great and appropriate for the occasion.  IN.

    In because I SWEAT that hairstyle, she looks hot (though I’m not 100% happy about the bottom portion), and also I irrationally love her.

    IN. Effortlessly gorgeous and sexy as hell. Took some time to warm up to the hair but it adds to her look.

    Whether the dress is good or not doesn’t matter, because the hair ruined everything.
