In or Out: Mia Wasikowska in Miu Miu

Posted on February 17, 2012

All we can say is…

Mia Wasikowska at Miu Miu’s “The Woman Dress’ premiere in NYC in head-to-toe Miu Miu.

Thank God she got to it before Michelle Williams did.

To our way of thinking, this is SO Mia’s dress and she’s rocking the hell out of it. Love the colors here and even though that heavy collar looks like it might be tough to pull off, Miss Mia’s making it look effortless. Super-cute dress which found its way on the right gal to wear it. Step off, Michelle. This side of Twee Street is covered.

Shoes? Too matchy and too geriatric, we’re sorry to say. And the hair and makeup is also oddly aging. A dress like this calls for a fresh face, we think. And she’s better at rocking the fresh face than a lot of other ladies. So disappointing, Mia. Have your makeup and hair gays put down.

 

Vote Now!

 

IN! PERFECT dress for her! Eat my twee, Michelle!


OUT! Nixon daughter drag.



 

Voting on Leighton Meester’s stripper/fairy tale character dress is still open. Expressing opinions prevents tooth decay and combats gingivitis. Plus you get to theorize as to where her nipples went.

    Oh dear no – what the fuck? The proportions do the most bizarre things to her body! I love the dress and I love her hair and makeup but the dress on the girl is an OUT.

    • http://www.GiftedCollector.com Nancy Abrams

      I agree. The proportions are off, but I’m not sure why. Seems like the belt is too high? Plus, the collar is way too heavy and oddly placed. And exactly where are her breasts? Out.

    I am thinking OUT for poor detailing. Her face looks painted on. And I just do not like the dress enough. Maybe I should like it more, but I still think OUT.

    I can’t help thinking that she has either already been beheaded and is serving her head up on a platter (surrounded by roughage) or has isolated her head and is ready to be executed.  I  think that makes this an out.

    Huh– I thought this *was* fresh faced! The hair and makeup work for me. I think the hair had to be up off that collar, and the nice simple ‘do is vaguely Star Trek in a good way for me. The makeup is lovely! At least, it’s how I would have gone.

    No opinion on the shoes, but I like that they’re understated and let the woman and her dress speak for themselves.

    In!

    The shape of the top is so freaking odd. The hair plus cat eye give this a retro vibe that does not match the dress. A weak OUT.

    In but just barely.  The styling is off for me but the dress is so great I think it picks up a lot of the slack.  I really think a closed toe shoe was called for here.  It needed grounding.  The hair is just okay and the eye makeup is a bit too heavy but not overly offensive.

    There’s something wrong here but I’m not sure what it is. Obviously the shoes suck, but I think with better shoes and better hair this could be great. As it is, not so great.

    I’ve got to go with OUT.  I think the combination of the way the sleeveless top is cut along with her hair is making her look oddly proportioned.  I think if it was more haltered up to the neck, her shoulders wouldn’t look wider than they are.  Not sure what would have been appropriate for the hair…perhaps something similar but looser?

  • Anonymous

    It’s borderline, but I’m going OUT. There is something about it that makes her look upsidedown.

  • Anonymous

    I like the idea of this and the colors, but the collar is too high and too bulky. The shoes are bad. She should be wearing a metallic something or other with this. The right shoe could have kicked up the fierceness factor.

    I’m voting Out.

    OUT. The dress is way too stiff and is awful on her figure. Plus the length of the skirt plus the collar makes her look half a foot shorter.

    I trust you guys that this is a good dress for her…. but the hair, pose, and expression all reinforce a kind of passive little-girl feel that seems genuinely passé. Which is probably a long way of saying, too twee for me. OUT.

    I’m being haunted by an unwelcome ghost from the past. This dress is horrifyingly close to the outfits our moms made us for drill team when I was in high school, circa 1966.

    This looks like a costume for the Rockettes—-looks great with 48 of them in a row, but singly, not so good.  In fact, I think tap shoes would be a vast improvement over those ugly, strappy sandals.  I must vote OUT, although I hate to cross you on successive days, TLo.

    small IN. Yes the dress is twee, but she looks good in it. I agree the makeup looks a little heavy handed and I wish she had worn her hair down and she needs better shoes. Still it’s not a total trainwreck and I don’t think it’s bad enough for an OUT.

    Michelle Williams would have made the dress look significantly less young and fresh, she’s usually come off stuffy in her red carpet looks.
