In or Out: Mena Suvari in Christian Siriano

Posted on March 20, 2012

Didja ever notice that Mena Suvari, who wears a lot of Christian Siriano and attends his shows, actually looks like him a little bit? Seriously, mentally dye the hair black and put a pair of glasses on her.

Anyway, we like-but-not love this on her. It’s a cute dress and a decent twist on the standard LBD. We don’t know if she’s too short for it or what, but it all seems quite a bit fussier on her than it does on the model, especially that shoulder treatment. The hair looks good, the makeup looks extremely good, but the accessories are once again where the outfit fails for us. We try not to pass ourselves off as arbiters of style but really, if we had to instruct ladies on dressing themselves, we’d return to the one rule that always applies: It’s All About The Detailing. And when you wear neutrals or blacks, that rule becomes even more important. We’re not saying she needed a pop of color. Silver and sparkly are perfectly fine choices here. But those shoes are halfway to ugly and that clutch is too plain to do anything for the look. The earrings are gorgeous but they tend to blend in with her hair color a bit much. If you’re gonna wear the big danglies, why pick something that camouflages itself?
