In or Out: Jennifer Lawrence in Victoria, Victoria Beckham

Posted on March 27, 2012

If you’re sick of her, we can’t blame you, but this look made us sit up and take notice.

Jennifer Lawrence attends “The Hunger Games” Madrid Fan Event Photocall in Victoria, Victoria Beckham.

Victoria, Victoria Beckham Fall 2012 Collection

SUCH a cute little dress — or is it?

Here’s where, once again, first impressions come up against repeated viewings. We love the colors and the shape of this dress on her. She’s been going for the va-va-voom looks more often than not on this little world tour of hers – and why not? She’s young and hot and she’s getting world class va-va-voom dresses thrown at her every day. So this little dropped waist frock seemed like a nice change of pace when we first saw it. Two things, though:

DOES it really suit her that well? We’re not saying she always has to wear the body-con dresses, but the more we look at it the less we think this silhouette is her friend.

And isn’t this dress awfully busy for such a simple silhouette. There’s an awful lot going on here; too many panels, too many competing weights of fabric.

One thing we are firm about: the girl needs a hair consult like nobody’s business. That’s totally “working in the mall” hair.

 

Vote Now!

 

IN! It’s sassy-cute! Not every dress has to show off the T & A, you know!


OUT! Enh. Looks like a sewing project gone wrong.

 

The minions agreed with Tom about Lana del Rey’s dress (or maybe LdR generally), voting it (or her) OUT. They also disapproved of Naya Rivera’s satin tablecloth, giving it the OUT vote as well.

    NO. Out. And burn it. 

    Also, why is her hair always so lifeless on the red carpet. What’s going on there?

    • Kirsten Henry

      I think it’s the bangs

      • Jillian and Cullen

        I know blonde is tempting, but I think it has to do with the color.  She is such a lovely brunette!

        • http://twitter.com/pointlesswords jaymeglynn

           Except, she’s a natural blonde, and a lighter blonde suits her quite well I think. See: the film Like Crazy.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    OUT, because the dress is young and fun on paper. On her, it looks like Vicky’s Multicolored Cocktail Coat.

    I would’ve given her an out simply on account of what the HELL she is doing with her hair. She has gorgeous, fantastic hair. WHERE IS IT.

  • http://twitter.com/AbbottRabbit AbbottRabbit

    Top yay, skirt nay. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

    Great on paper, but it looks overworked even on the model. Out!

  • TheLaurenJean

    I say a hesitant In. The hair and makeup are dreadful, but the dress is cute and different.  I’ll always side with someone going for different though, so I don’t know what to tell ya.

  • msftmargarita

    In, but she needs to work on her hair.

  • BazoDee

    OUT! 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NMLK23QK6C7NMLMVVYA5POXKJY WhiteMage

    i think she needs to ditch the hair. she looks too much like the actress who plays penny on the big bang theory. the dress also looks like a reject project runway dress. the puckering where the second and third layers meet is driving me nuts. it makes mondo’s frankendress look sophisticated. 

  • PeaceBang

    OUT. She looks fine, it’s not atrocious, but it’s not a good cut for her, and that hair is so very need of help. 

  • lizajane1776

    Out. Looks like a dress my dad gave my mom in 1971.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1091753514 Kelli Anderson Taylor

    I like the dress, but, yeah, pretty sick of that hair.  She’s too pretty for that.

    • MilaXX

      Seriously! Her hair looked better as Katniss BEFORE the stylist gotto her.

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

    Not cute. Looks like a Project Runway scrap challenge gone horribly wrong. OUT. 

    • luciaphile

       Out.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=567835404 Patti Lever

       Nailed it!!  It looks like a Mondo design.

  • Sara__B

    A busy little dress best suited for the flat-chested. It’s not awful (well, her hair is bordering on awful), so In, barely.

  • kimmeister

    OUT.  Doesn’t even look good on the model.  A wrinkled taffeta top works on no one.

  • http://twitter.com/lindseyrenee lindsey

    Huh. My hair is kind of similar to that today. Although I guess I can call it “working two jobs, only one of which is at the mall” hair. 

    Frankly, I don’t think the drop-waist silhouette is that flattering on anyone. But it looks horrible on me, so maybe I’m biased against it.

    • Lilithcat

       I don’t think the drop-waist silhouette is that flattering on anyone.

      Nobody with any hips, anyway.  And that is most of us!

      • http://twitter.com/mirrormirrorxx Paola Thomas

        On those of us with no hips and no waist indentation, however, it’s a REVELATION.  

  • http://twitter.com/chylde bellalozza

    In. Adorable. She should get a sleek bob. Those bangs are so 80s. 

  • http://profiles.google.com/anplica Anplica Fiore

    The only thing I love about this look is her makeup.  Out.

    • mountainFashionista

      Funny, I was thinking that the makeup makes her face look strangely dirty!

  • Kyle Crawford

    It’s a little bit Mondo, it’s a little bit Posh phoning it in.. ( she does have like 16 children…)

    • Kayceed

      I am now humming the above to Donny and Marie’s “I’m a little bit country, I’m a little bit rock and roll.” Darn you.

  • April Moore

    as has been mentioned already, it’s basically a shinier, shorter, more drab version of mondo’s dress with the unflattering horizontal stripes and weird collection of conflicting fabrics. i hated it when mondo did it, and i hate it now.

  • ampg

    I think it’s a cute and sporty look for her, so I’ll say IN.  But the smoky-eye-and-mall-hair combo is seriously wrong here.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=8200408 Robyn Baylor

    In – I like it! It reminds me of a better version of Mondo’s dress for the Nanette Lepore challenge. 

    • Spicytomato1

      I thought the same thing. And she could be rocking it if only she did something (anything!) with her hair. 

  • serenitynow02

    Out. It’s drab and it looks homemade. From scraps.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brendan.foehr Brendan Foehr

    Out. Jennifer gurrrrl  you fabulous, but Victoria Beckham is a…. difficult designer. And person, from what I hear. Basically, yo dress and hurr is shit ugly and that’s something you should work on.

  • cam_lo

    THE FUCKING HAIR! JESUS GOD.

    jennifer. what the actual fuck. those bangs need to die. chop them off at the root. i don’t even care. just make them leave please.

    i honestly can never comment on her actual garment because her hair-styling is always so distracting that it kills the whole look for me. i’m imagining this look with a victoria b-style, super severe slicked back topknot and i am so much happier.

    • http://www.facebook.com/brendan.foehr Brendan Foehr

      Agreed! It’s depressed waitress hair AND I WILL NOT HAVE IT IN MY HOUSE.

  • siriuslover

    I think it’s cute so IN.

    …but…I agree about the hair. And does she only have one style? 

  • http://theargiehome.blogspot.com/ Gus Casals

    She’s IN for being age and freshness appropriate for once. Don’t love the fit, but everything else is good, even the down to earth hair goes with the dress. 

    • http://www.wordydoodles.com WordyDoodles

       Totally age appropriate and fresh. I love it. I actually don’t think this is overworked at all.

      The hair is fine and that’s all I’m saying about that because maybe JLaw is in between hair stylists or just overslept or just didn’t want to deal with it today, and I’m ok with giving her the day off.

  • AlexisPayne

    To much going on, OUT. 

  • IAmJ

    Huh. I can’t find it in my heart to say anything positive about this look. OUT.

  • unbornfawn

    The dress is kinda cute. Not on her. Eye make-up looks cheap.OUT

  • fireontiger

    The more I see it, the less I love it. And that hair is a tragedy. OUT!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/J2VE4NE2FY2BP4QD2XOYKJGLPI Laura

    OUT. Oh that hair. Driving me crazy… And I think she looks better as a brunette. 

    The dress and shoes = all wrong. Don’t care for whatever is happening with that midsection panel. Do not like. 

  • GorgeousThings

    And too many puckery seams. Seriously, that’s all I can see. VB should fire her factory and find someone who knows how to sew.

  • lalahartma

    Yeah, nah!

  • LongTall_Sally

    The dress is cute, the hair not so much.  I give it an IN.

  • MzzPants

    How does this girl make everything look so ordinary?  OUT.

  • DeborahLipp

    In. It’s a cute and sassy dress. Still hate the hair & makeup.

  • nannypoo

    I want to like it but I just can’t. 

  • P M

    OUT. What Messrs. T and Lo said.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Claudia-Gilbert/875055316 Claudia Gilbert

    It appeals to me on a level I can’t quite understand…IN

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1303837450 Lauren Dorsee Dillon

    Out. The dress doesn’t do her any favors (though she is adorable).

  • RoxieRider

    In. I think she looks super cute, and the hair and other details look and feel like rookie mistakes, rather than epic failures.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDI2DLE7DE3YPW2ONIHBWOVHMA ecallaw

    That dress is adorable, but it’s just not made for her body type.  It would look better on someone like, oh, I don’t know, maybe Victoria Beckham?

  • Michael_Jones

    Everyone seems so cranky these days.  I’ll give this cute little thing an “in,” even if I’m not able to result to full capital letters or an exclamation point.

  • MilaXX

    IN! I think she looks cute except for that hair.

  • Jecca2244

    It was dead then the shoes ran over it making it a huge OUT.

  • Vaniljekjeks

    In.  She looks comfortable and cute.  The hair is on the tragic side, but I really love the booties. 

  • Lilithcat

    OUT!

    If that were a PR entry, we’d all be pointing out the poor construction.  Just look at the way the seam between the second and third panels from the top is pulling.  No, no, no.

    And the shoes are godawful

  • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

    IN – totally chic little dress and booties but the hair is KILLING me. Seriously, it makes the whole look go off the rails.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    OUT. That is hiddy.  As are the shoes. 

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Nicht, nein, nay.  Sort of reminded me of Mondo in the weeds.  Depressed Mondo in the weeds at that.  The pulling at the seaming is also a big no.

    The hair – no excuse for someone who’s on such a public relations blitz.  I’m with you, Boys, what gives with these celebrities’ stylists to let such sloppiness out for view?

  • Scarlet39

    Sorry, don’t like it. 

  • http://magnetgirl.tumblr.com Anika

    I can’t get over how much I hate her hair. I think I vote IN because the dress is actually adorable and it’s interesting. But I seriously hate her hair and it’s like this 90% of the time!

    • Spicytomato1

      Her hair really is bad, in fact I think it’s gotten worse. You’d think in Hollywood they’d be able to work some sort of magic (a wig?) to make those horrible bangs go away. Poor thing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Out. Ugh.

  • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

    The fabric is horrible. It’s gape-y at the shoulders and the seam below the bust ruins it completely.
    It’s a cute dress in theory, but execution is bad. 
    Nice try Jen. Actually, bad try. Hair is crappy and I hate the shoes.

    OUT, all the way around.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Out on the dress (skirt & top??) but I love her smile!
    Definitely Mondo’s scrap pile. Puckering seams. With some tweeks this more demure look would work on her. Sometimes the most perfect bodies are the most difficult to fit and flatter. The shoulders and upper bodice are horrible choices for her build. A more cut-in halter effect (the athletic look is really on trend right now) would really show her shoulders off. 

  • Anathema_Device

    Out. So not her dress AT ALL. A wealth of options exists between body conscious and twee. And those booties with the dress? hell no.

  • http://twitter.com/LianaBrooks Liana Brooks

    OUT – Hate the dress, the make up, her hair… ugh. I can’t find anything nice to say about this. 

  • EAV

    Those shoes look like hooves.

  • benjamin478

    IN. Not a great dress by sh looks sharp (minus th hair)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=610791985 Aniela Marie Perry

    What is up with her hair? Mine looks like that right now and I just woke up. OUT.

  • marilyn

    Out.  This is a cheerleader outfit, except the fabric in the skirt does not match the top.  Other than that, the top would be great with something else, and the skirt is one step past Forever 21.  Somehow the cut of the skirt makes her legs look heavy, which is obviously not true.  Does Victoria Beckham wear this?  Jennifer is young and trying a lot of new things.  Not a big loss fore her, since she is attractive, and learning.    

  • kelsita421

    something’s off, so it’s gotta be OUT.

  • Isana Leshchinskaya

    love her but OUT. no shape, weird shoe choice, terrible hair.

  • http://twitter.com/SamH4Prez Samantha

    I think it’s cute. She’s a beautiful girl and rocks the glamorous gowns, but it’s nice to be reminded that she’s only, what, 20? IN

  • StrandedFashionista

    Ooh cute. I like it. IN. 

  • j_anson

    IN! It’s cute. It’s not the right dress to choose to seduce her crush, but it’s cute in other ways.

  • Terence Ng

    I love the idea, but not the execution. In the abstract, but not IRL. OUT.

  • ChiliP

    In- she’s trying something different, and it’s a cute look. Agreed on the hair.

  • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

    All of the fabric weights are basically the same–all taffeta/shantung weight, with a slightly heftier weight on the bottom to keep the dress hanging properly.

    It’s a fabulous dress and I think she looks amazing. IN.

  • https://profiles.google.com/104791269167429064986?hl=en&tab=h Judy S

    OUT.

    IN! shes fabulous. y’all are nuts

  • Miss_Magpie

    That last picture she looks like Olivia Newton john.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

    In, but I hate the shoes with it.

  • vmcdanie

    In. I dunno, it’s different. I still like her because she looks unique and not fussed over. 

  • http://twitter.com/connectinglines Me Again

    OUT.  Mondo makes better mixed-fabric frocks than that in 3 days.

  • Kate4queen

    IN

  • http://twitter.com/jennsaysmeow Fifi LaRoux

    I just don’t think it’s her dress. Her bazooms are making it warp funny on her upper half and it’s not really giving her a waist.

    Also, you guys are so dead on with the hair. Jennifer, dear, you have a fortune, go pay for an overpriced haircut please!

  • http://blue-again.myopenid.com/ blue

    IN. Love the dress! Hate the shoes though; they’re too prim & proper looking. Some boots or strappy sandals would’ve been fab.

  • NCDFan

    In. She looks young and fresh and carefree. Hard to pull off with the kind of schedule she’s been following.

  • DCSheehan

    Out. Not sure who can wear this thing but it ain’t her.

  • http://twitter.com/lenabena_ Elena

    Out.
    I can’t help but love J. Law. She’s a year younger than me, and her interviews make me want to be bffs with her. But her hair on this  Hunger Games promo tour pains me. Her bangs always look crispy and unkempt, and the side pieces framing her face aren’t helping matters. For that reason, I had to give this look an Out, although with better hair, it could’ve been an In.

  • nancylee61

    Out!! Sewing project gone wrong. The top and bottom don’t seem to match. Too much going on.

  • http://profiles.google.com/thekate Kate Musgrove

    Enough of it works for me to give it an in, but that hair is awful! 

  • Aly Light

    IN. Fix the hair.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MBZQXGWCTBDTAZMEM4S2EJUNUQ Katie

    I think this dress would be great on Michelle Williams, but it’s not Jennifer Lawrence’s dress. OUT, only for mismatch of dress and woman. 

  • mjude

    is the fabric puckering?  sorry katniss, but i have to say OUT.

  • http://www.facebook.com/smpflueger Sean McArdle Pflueger

    Give the poor girl a break. She got tired of pimping in body hugging clothes, so she went to a more body friendly and forgiving outfit.

  • calimon

    OUT. Girl, sorry, but that just ain’t your dress!

  • JanieS

    I give it a lower-case in, because I like the look of the dress and shoes, but the girl needs a hair intervention SO BAD.

  • Greg Yoder

    She’s very pretty, but I don’t think that dress works on anybody.  The hair isn’t great, but great hair wouldn’t have saved that dress. Out.

  • RebeccaKW

    Mostly In.  The dress isn’t GREAT, but really, I only dislike the panel above the orange one.  I don’t hate the shoes.  I don’t normally mind her bangs and the little side pieces, but this looks a bit sloppy, like maybe she woke up late and only had time to put it in a bun without brushing it.  Actually, I think if she put a little more effort into the hair, I would be more positively In.

    I also give it props for not being a usual and expected dress.

  • jjfg

    As is the case for probably 75% of the folks pictured here, I have no idea who she is (much less what she usually wears) but I think she looks cute.  The hair almost cancels it out but I’ll go IN.

  • tired_mommy

    OUT. It makes her look wide which she is most certainly not. Even the model looks wider than I’m sure she is (although in her case that’s a good thing).

  • TSkot

    Isn’t this Mondo’s dress from the Nanette Lepore challenge??

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      My thoughts, exactly.

  • Judy_J

    My first impression was IN, but like you, upon repeated viewings I liked this less and less.  However, I’m feeling magnanimous, so I’ll go with my first impression and give her an IN.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    Not sick of her yet. but I’m sure that will change.
    I don’t know…I like the *idea* of this dress, but the actual dress just isn’t quite doing it for me. The shape is adorable on her, but I think there’s entirely too much going on here, and…is that puckering I see at the seams? That’s unacceptable on a dress that most likely costs more than my monthly rent.

  • saanrio

    OUT.  The construction seems iffy, and the hair is in desperate need of professional help.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=561903133 Sage Andersen

    out.  although i really dislike her hair more than anything.  it’s just so distracting. how can such a gorgeous young woman walk out and think that her mid-nineties prom hair does anything but age her?

  • http://michjeff-quiltersparadise.blogspot.com/ Michelle Young

    Doesn’t this dress remind you of Mondo’s striped dress in the next to last challenge?  Just a thought.  I kind of like it on her but do think her legs are so muscular that she should not wear such a short skirt.  I don’t know.

    • sashaychante

      YES!  It’s a little more fitted.  I immediately thought Mondo when I saw the first picture of this dress.

  • sagecreek

    In!

  • Cathy S

    I don’t like the dress at all but the little booties are very cute. Out.

  • altalinda

    In.  Cute and casual for the occasion.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VW5XHSH45FBZ2ZEZJARYHILIZQ Leah

    The dress is cute. I like it. It reminds me of Rooney Mara. But good GOD. Her hair and makeup. Girl needs help. Did you do it in the car?

  • http://twitter.com/Fibercrazed Sara

    Love the makeup and the boots and I like the change of pace from all the T&A she’s been working lately. Don’t get me wrong, she SHOULD work ‘em, she’s got a lovely figure. I don’t love this dress, but since I love her so much in general, I’ll give her a *just barely* IN.

    Am I the only one who thinks she’s even prettier with the darker “Katniss hair”??

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    IN!

  • EditKitten

    Anyone else get “Gidget” from the neck up? This doesn’t say much for her stylist, but the hair is cute to me for once.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    Even if the dress didn’t look like one pulled thread would make it fall apart, the sad hair sends it OUT.  Is it a fit issue causing all the puckering & pulling?  Too bad, this could have been a seriously cute day look, especially with those booties.

  • http://twitter.com/stellaphone Stella Zawistowski

    It’s…not bad? But the hair moves it into OUT territory, I’m afraid.

  • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

    I don’t like it, and I usually love kicky little dresses like this.  It doesn’t look very well made, with all those puckers.  Out.

  • sashaychante

    OUT  She’s really cute. The dress is really ugly.  Her hair does need an update.  Its a bit cleaning the house and running errands. 

  • Ezmartin

    cute. mild in. 

  • Sarah Thomas

    Mass Effect cocktail waitress.

    • StelledelMare

  • jcolli69

    That is totally Mondo’s dress from the Nanette Lepore challenge. And Mondo did it better. OUT.

    and that hairstyle has to GO. NOW.

  • Louise Bryan

    I think it looks better on Jennifer than on the model.  It’s young and fun.  She could have done more with her hair, but I’m giving her an in, despite the shoes, which I hate.

  • Joyce VG

    IN!  It makes her look boxy agreed, and gives no shape of her fabulous figure, but she looks young and cute and I love the paneling.  IN!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=617249824 Dawn Sinclair

    it’s REALLY badly made, the seam line at the bust should NOT pucker like that and the lack of suppression makes it look like a bag. OUT on quality.

  • http://twitter.com/riosramblings Michael Rios

    OUT. Bad hair, poor choice of shoes, overthought dress.

  • StelledelMare

    Tentative IN. The makeup is a bit off to me. I will never get tired of her though

  • mom2ab

    IN!!! Every dress does not have to be a peep show and with the idiotic press this girl has been getting about her (perfectly fine) body I refuse to be part of any discussion that even suggests the only way to present oneself is to look like a consumptive slut.

  • http://angryfemur.tumblr.com Andrea Lane

    No, out, a thousand times out.

    She should go back to being a brunette. Actually, a lot of people should go back to being brunette.

  • belfebe

    IN.  She looks adorable.

  • jw_ny

    OUT

    The fabrics of the dress are the problem…a lot of seam puckering and too many different weighted fabrics. 

    I like the dress shape for her and, in theory, like the mix of colors and patterns…just not working here. 

    Her hair looks like she’s been doing house and yard work all day. 

  • bailey debruynkops

    strongly agree with competing weights of fabric. + sick of her. out–

  • http://houseofestrogen.typepad.com/ Ann

    Out. I can’t even see past the hair. Who is letting her out of the limo with hair like that?  I’ve seen soccer moms in yoga pants doing laundry in need of a hair wash with a better looking do! 

  • Spicytomato1

    The dress is cute — love the color combo– and unusual. At first I was angered by the hair, now I just feel sorry for her. A sympathetic IN.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    I love it to the hips, where the change in fabric weights seems to throw things off. I wish the hem wasn’t pleated and the waist wasn’t pintucked (or whatever the hell is going on there), and I wish the sleeves were a hair shorter or gone altogether. I don’t hate it, I actually want to love it, but it’s got issues. OUT until altered.

  • KuriousKat

    Totally in: she looks adorable!

  • formerlyAnon

    In. Barely in. Because that dress manages to hang onto a certain something, even though, as you point out, it’s doing its level best to defeat itself by having too much going on.  It hangs onto enough of that something that it almost makes me not hate the shoes.

    (The hair, while under-achieving, doesn’t upset me so much because so often the more obviously professionally done hair I see on the younger actresses isn’t terribly impressive, either.)

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    Are we sure that is a dress and not separates?  Anyway, I’d give her an IN because she looks cute.  Like the little booties, love the color on her, and her makeup is fine.  Agree about the hair needing work, tho.

  • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

    I don’t love the dress and I think her poor little cheeks look really sore from smiling so much. OUT.

  • Caaro3

    I love it.  IN

  • gsk241

    Yes, she could have done better with hair/makeup, but she still looks cute and like she has a personality.  IN!

  • 3Beaz

    I can’t even see the dress because I’m too distracted by her hair.  She looked so much prettier in the film as Katniss than she does here with her hair and makeup, I cringe at every photo-op pic I see because of the lost potential here.

  • sherrietee

    She looks like she has been snacking on Snickers and has to hide a belly pooch.  Out.

  • Scott Isaacs

    In, but not by much. Love the dress and top. Unique color combination most designers would not have imagined. But yes, the hair is a bit tragic. I think she could do with a bit less eye shadow next time, too. I’m also thinking she’s getting tired of smiling…it looks a bit forced. But can you blame her? If I were in her shoes, I would have given up umpteen photo ops ago. So props to her for actually smiling in the first (or umpteenth) place.

    I  think she looks fabulous. That dress is super cute and the hair suits her to a T, considering it was a fan event and not a premiere. 

  • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

    Hate the shoes, like the dress (pretty sophisticated for VB, actually). But, OUT.

  • sweet_potato

    It’s a cute and sassy dress.  It’s like it’s pretty casual except for the use of the luxury fabrics.  Unfortunately for Jennifer, her makeup never looks quite right but I still say IN.

  • CQAussie

    OUT.  Something not quite right with the proportions on this dress.  It’s just not working for me.  Plus the hair is dismal.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

    The dress looks cheap and something is off about the lines.  Jen is young & will come around. That model needs to eat something.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3AJ237ND3GAHDQJZ4TLCO4WLRA Emily

    in.  cute.

  • DominoEstella

    I like the dress but I think her build is a little too athletic for this silhouette.  I agree on the hair, she needs a stylist. 

  • kingderella

    IN for the dress. hair and make-up are tragic.

  • http://twitter.com/Kerry_McC Kerry McCombs

    Why is there so much puckering everywhere on that dress? Yuck.

  • Judih1

    OUT – sewing project gone wrong indeed, pared with mall hair

  • PhillipWilde

    From the ground up: cute shoes; fun, youthful skirt; shapeless top; too much eye makeup; hair that clearly hasn’t been touched since she put it up to wash her face last night.  It just doesn’t come together.  OUT.

  • maggiemaybe

    I like the dress, but then I was lovin’ the math book dress as well so I’m starting to doubt my instincts…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P2ANLRZ6YAVGONA36I2AQJYGI VicD

    OUT.  That may be the ugliest dress V Beck has ever done.  It even looks bad on the model.  And don’t get me started on those heinous shoes…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GFRKTKRR6FKE2G4QO4MQNGL6DY Carol

    IN.  Firmly in the “it’s so refreshing to see a young actress not feel that she always has to show the goods” corner.  Young. Adorable.  And not emaciated like the model.

  • sleepycat

    I think it works, although I agree about the hair. IN

  • Violina23

    Out because of the fabric folding and pinching in bad places.  Not her fault, just a flawed dress.

  • Adriana_Paula

    In, though not with a violet passion.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sorana.tarmu Sorana Tarmu

    OUT. She looks underdressed. Mainly because of the hair.

  • Lisa

    Yeah, I am already sick of her!  And the dress ain’t great!

  • CatherineRhodes

    OUT

  • ChiKat67

    Emma Watson would like her dress back.

  • lesmaha

    Out again….

  • margaret meyers

    That dress is terrible.  It doesn’t look good onthe wraith-like model and it doesn’t look good on the slim actress.  Blame the designer.

  • Thathoodwink

    All I can see is that puckery puckery seam.

    • plinkiedoodle

      I agree.  All I see is that puckery yuckery seam.  Out!

  • hearkentoit

    First impression wins for me here. I could nitpick it, but my first reaction was “ooh, she looks so cute!” and that’s an IN to me.

  • funkypeanut

    Olivia Newton-John called from the first act of Grease, and she needs her head back.

  • butter nut

    i’m not crazy about it.  but at the same time it looks like it’s probably the most “her” of all the designer frocks she’s been parading around in lately.  not too fussy, really easy-going, but still stylish.  that said, i’m not crazy about it.  and i agree, the hair needs help.  so, OUT

  • http://www.facebook.com/janet.selman Janet Selman

    Mondo did this dress better. Out. 

  • http://twitter.com/Merneith Merneith

    Mondo’s square dress that he sold on N&M was cuter and better made. I don’t like the fabric choices here and the way it puckers up in the seaming.

  • Sophie Collier

    Cute dress but it does not flatter her.  She looks kind of masculine in it.  That cheerleader-practice hair has got to go too.  Give this dress to a Fanning girl.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1452430239 Roxanne Pedro

    ick, OUT.  

  • http://twitter.com/GaraStJames Gara St. James

    Dress is cute. But her hair and shoes aren’t helping. With the right, sassy shoe and cute hair, it might work. I’d give it a grudging “in” only because the dress is cute on its own.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Love it. IN.

  • AWStevens

    Looks like a uniform for some hipster cafe waitress.  OUT

  • demidaemon

    I think it looks cute, but the hair, the hair!. The hair itself is enough for an out, but I’ll give this one an IN for going against the grain and taking a risk.

  • annamiklo

    Totally out.  I wouldn’t wish this dress on anyone.  It looks just as bad on the model.  Also, the shoes don’t really go.  

  • TieDye64

    Minor in. A little zhuzhing of the hair would help.

  • lrhoff

    Yuck.  Doesn’t work for me at all….

  • http://twitter.com/pag_baj Paige Boerman

    No. Too busy. OUT.

  • http://twitter.com/Emcee_Escher R. Beers

    Given the type of event she was attending, I say IN.  

  • ccm800

    Reminds me of Mondo’s sack – if Mondo’s sack forgot it’s meds. 

  • fashionablylate

    INNNNNN! I think she looks adorable.

  • RzYoung

    I don’t like this dress at all, I hate how aware you are of the seems, far too much going on and not great on her lovely figure. I could see if on someone petite and shapeless but not on JLaw here. out from me

  • http://twitter.com/Eovaai Eovaai

    OUT.  I like the concept in theory, but it doesn’t work on her. And on most humans, I’d expect.

  • http://twitter.com/ennisamy Amy Ennis

    She looks just like Amanda Bynes in this picture. Adorable, yes, but very Nickelodeon. 

  • Taylor Coil

    That’s like a way better, toned down version of Mondo’s Nanette Lapore dress.

    I like it. It’s a nice change. In!

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    OUT! “Sewing Project gone wrong” is perfect!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=768540908 Badriya Al-Badi’a

    The blue and silvery grey at the top of the dress set off her eyes really well.  I think it’s a difficult shape and actually looks better on her than on the model.  Or maybe it’s not the shape, but that the fabric looks so stiff.  With a little softness to the fabric and better hair, it would work much better.  Marginally in, mostly for being different.

  • lilazander

    Never-mind the dress, what is the hell up with the make-up? OUT!

  • Frenchie_M

    Yeah, what’s up with the hair?  She is gorgeous and the bangs and little side bits make her cheeks look chubby-ish…girl could wear just about any other hairstyle and it would look better.

  • EEKstl

    That dress is odd, I love the idea of it, but that top band of grey at the ribcage is throwing the whole look off.  It needed to be either a different color or straight to the orange.  As it is it just makes the dress look ill-fitting and weird.  Great colors, tho.

  • sweetlilvoice

    IN, like it. It’s sweet…..maybe she was feeling fat or PMSing and needed something comfy.

  • http://profiles.google.com/dchockeyguy Trevor Burroughs

    In. It’s a nice dress.

  • Cheri Lee

    The top is great but the skirt looks like it was taken from another dress. Her overall look suggests she should be at a Food Court ordering from Magic Wok.

  • KathKo

    IN for the dress. It’s young and cute. It’s refreshing to see her a little more demure than on the lasts couple of red carpets.
    Can’t get behind the hair. Should have been more slick.

  • Haley Buchanan

    It pains me to say this because I think she is one of the most gorgeous, talented, and seemingly down-to-earth girls on the red carpet these days, but it looks like a half-thought-out wacky student project.  Sorry J Law, love ya, but this one’s OUT.

  • miatamam

    You know, there’s just always something amiss when this girl hits the carpet…….

  • sleah_in_norcal

    she looks adorable!  you guys are thinking too much.  go with your gut and get a life.

    only teasing, you know how much i love you.

  • aristida_girl

    This is the first time I have ever given something an out at first look, and upon further review voted IN…I think she is cute enough to pull this dress off…

  • http://mllesatine.dreamwidth.org/ mllesatine

    Out. Fabric wrinkles around the sleeves, pulling at the seams. Would have been an IN if it had been made better.

  • bluefish

    OUT — dreadful.  And, yes, I am sick of her already.

  • MarissaLG

    I’m sorry to say this, but OUT OUT OUT. 

  • Jennifer Hofstetter

    In. I love the dress. And the make up. Not the hair.

    MONDO’S NANETTE DRESS

  • guest2visits

    No. It doesn’t suit her. And it looks fractionally too small.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=22917995 Nicole Renee

    IN. With a few qualms… I hate how the meshing of fabrics is pulling so terribly! Cute booties though, she’s got the legs for them. And hair!! Though, of all her looks, this is probably the most suited for JBF hair, we’ve seen it many times already. Love you j. law!
