In or Out: Zoe Saldana in Louis Vuitton

Posted on June 14, 2012

Zoe Saldana’s clothes-wearing bona fides have long been established, as far as we’re concerned. She can wear beautiful things and make them even more so, and she can wear average-looking – and sometimes even ugly – things and make them look pretty good. It’s a talent.

But we’re not quite sure how to take this attempt:

Zoe Saldana attends Persol Magnificent Obsessions: 30 Stories Of Craftmanship In Film Event in NYC in Louis Vuitton.

Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 Collection

Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 Collection

Persol ‘PO3025S’ Eyewear

Is this fun and cheeky? Or does she look a little bit like a society matron in her seventies? Except for the strip of belly showing, of course.

We don’t really have much to say here in terms of breaking this one down. This is an immediate-impact, first-impression kind of look. Either you love it or you think it looks ridiculous. Because there are two of us, we can’t quite come down on either side of the question. Lo leans toward loving it and T leans toward thinking she’s gonna need a walker to get through the Met fundraiser.

 

 

Vote Now!
IN! She did it again! How DOES she do it?

 

OUT! Not even the Saldana could make this work.

 

 

Selena Gomez’s Macy’s two-piece was voted OUT by the Bitter Kittens, many of whom were seen to be rolling their eyes.

    Out. This is a rare instance when the model looks better than Zoe.

    • Qitkat

      I agree with you.
      Why on earth did she shorten the top? Pants fit quite poorly. Colors/pattern are beautiful on her though.

      • http://www.facebook.com/shreya.aren Shreya Aren

        The shortening of the top skews the proportions horribly.

        • Eileen R. Vanhoose

          If she can’t make it work, maybe nobody can...DemoforFrank.blogspot.com

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        Oh! I hadn’t noticed that she shortened the top.  No wonder the proportions look off!  Thanks, Qitkat!

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

    OUT. Apparently shoulder pads are coming back so big, they now look like football shoulder pads.  

    • Louise Bryan

      I was wondering if there were shoulder pads under the sweater.  Way too bulky up top, skimpy looking from the waist down.  Interesting shoes, though.

  • Judy_S

    Out. Sorry, but it looks silly. If she can’t make it work, maybe nobody can.

  • Sobaika

    It’s a sassy granny outfit and I LOVE it. IN!

    • call_me_schmeg

      i’m with ya. snaps, granny Z. IN!

    • BerlinerNYC

      I kind of love it too, and I’m even coming around to liking what I thought at first was an overly plain face. I don’t think every woman (especially one like La Saldana, who clearly doesn’t need a lot of help with what nature gave her) needs to be totally “done” and walk around with a pound of slap on her face, but even just a tinted lip gloss or something might have given this look a little more *pop* that would have driven the sass home…

  • MilaXX

    As much as I love Zoe, I don’t like these pants. The lentgh and cut don’t work with the shoulder pats in the top mkingher look like a giraffe with extemely short legs. If they were straight skinny pants I could buy it. As it is it’s thisclose to an In.

    OUT

    • Pennymac

      Yes, I think the little flair at the bottom of these pants completes the “propotions of these are wonky” look. If they were skinny I think this would work (but not werq) I love the color, and love the shoes, and tolerate the jacket/top,  Mini in.

  • http://twitter.com/carlatheviking Carla Pereira

    No.

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

    She did it again, love it on first sight, and thus, IN
    Second look shows an odd fit in the pants, but I love the color palette and her casualness about the whole thing. Love the shoes too.

  • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

    OUT – sorry Zoe love, the fit is awful, you look tired and your hair is hurting your head.

  • http://pleasewelcomeyourjudges.com/ Brian @ PWYJudges

    Love it! Total IN.

  • Roosevelt 85

    IN!!!! Fierce as Fuck

  • alwaysanswerc

     That jacket is what would happen if the Highlander and a matador had a baby.

    IN, because I cracked myself up with that mental image.

  • VioletFem

    I love the color palette of this outfit, but the proportions of each piece seems way off. The pants look a little too baggy oh her. I think that top might look better with a slimmer pair of pants or a slim skirt. Also, not a fan of shoulder pads. 

  • DebbieLovesShoes

     I don’t like it; I think the pants are WAY too big on her.  (But the shoes are amazing.) 

  • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

    Out. The proportions are wrong. The jacket inspires awe but she looks like an inverted triangle. Those pants are sloppy and bulgy and weird.

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

      Yes.  Out for all these reasons.

  • ThatPeterG

    I love it. It works on her, and probably her alone.

  • MK03

    Ew. Nobody should wear that.

  • http://twitter.com/obscureobjects David Calder

    It’s an out. If you need me, I’ll be in mourning.

  • Nicole Chubb

    Total scrolldown fug. I thought it was a cute dress. The proportions are just weird.

  • lrhoff

    The model looks WAY better, in fact!  She’s out…..the belly thing is not cute.

  • Super_Red

    yeouch! No. Sorry, Fabulous Zoe, but you’re out this time. chin up, sweetie- even fabulous needs a break sometime. Fire someone, and you’ll feel much better, mmkay?

  • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

    Out, because of the fit. There’s just something off about the whole thing that I can’t put my finger on.

  • Summer On The Beach

    Out.  She could have made that jacket work if she hadn’t stolen the pants of a 4’11″ octogenarian golfer.
     

    • Nayasabrina

      Indeed— do they even make SANS-A-BELT slacks anymore?  Anybody here old enough to remember the Ed McMahon ads?

      ETA- OUT

  • BazoDee

    OUT. My first Saldana out. 

  • Joanna Schuth

    Noooooooooooooo.

  • http://twitter.com/jennawaterford Jennifer Ford

    In. She is pulling this off by the skin of her teeth, and she definitely is wearing it much better than the model did.

  • http://twitter.com/msjwatt J.Watt

    Sassy seventy society lady. IN.

  • Judy_J

    OUT.  Those pants don’t fit her.  Too big in the waist, and the crotch is baggy.  I don’t particularly like the shape of that blouse, either.

  • hughman

    It’s like if Michael Jackson had a Cosby sweater. No thanks. 

    • formerlyAnon

       Perfect!

  • Charmella

    When I saw this earlier, my first thought was YIKES…those pants don’t fit right. They don’t…and they’re a tad too shiny…the sweater is gorgeous, but the silhouette is wacky! Ahhhhhh…sorry, she should know better! OUT!

  • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

    I love it! The jacket is TO. DIE. I wish the pants sat a shosh higher on her hips – maybe she should have gone with a smaller size? Otherwise, I think she looks great. I’d give her an 8/10.

  • http://twitter.com/democracydiva Democracy Diva

    Sargeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, but IN.

  • j_anson

    OUT. Like the concept, can’t deal with the cut/fit of those pants.

    Can I just have those shoes? They’re pretty fab. 

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Cool-ass chick in wonky clothes: OUT

  • SapphoPoet

    OUT. The proportions are all wrong and those are some very aggressive-looking shoulders. Even Zoe can’t save this outfit. 

  • oatmealpie

    Out. The bit of tummy ruins it.

  • VicksieDo

    The pants are cool, but too big.  She’s probably too small for a size 0 :-(

  • Jellybish

    Love it, even though the pants don’t fit right.  Her fierceness transcends.

  • In_Stitches

    Cropped pants that flare don’t work on anyone.  OUT.

  • Courtney Brown

    IN. She looks cool. 

  • wisenhar

    I think the outfit is super-cute, but the fit is just wrong.  It’s a shame, I think she totally could have rocked this outfit, but she needed a couple of more fittings.  One of her fabulousness should have known better, so I have to fall on the side of OUT.

  • claudemtl777

    SASSY…frst word to pop to mind…by virtue of that :IN!

     

  • TSkot

    Shudder! OUT

  • TheOriginalLulu

    I think if everything were a bit more fitted, she would be rocking the shit out of this look, but as is the pants fit horribly and the top looks too boxy on her. Sadly, it’s an OUT.

  • Trisha26

    She’s so tiny that the huge shoulders just look ridiculous. At the same time the pants don’t look like they fit at all. And matchy shoes. Model looks far superior.

  • belfebe

    OUT.  The pants don’t fit.  That’s what’s bringing this look down.

  • fashionzombie

    OUT, but I blame the clothes, not Zoe. 

    Really, though, the pants look fine in the model shot, but when Zoe stands like a red-carpet human in them, they make her body look all sorts of weird. I’m willing to bet these pants look good in one stance only. And I flat-out don’t like the top. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/seelebrennt Christina Diaz

    out. i really hate the pants.  i think it’s just the fit though

  • Gabriella Soza

    Love. In. I want this.

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

    Oof. No. Killer shoes though.

  • http://opinionandamovie.blogspot.com/ Deitra S.

    I think it’s just a skosh off.  Had the pants NOT been cropped, this could have been magnificent.  Also, while I love the shoes, they do seem a bit matchy-match with this particular outfit.  I’d have to say a rare, and near OUT.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/M2D277JWFM4BUI7PWTTGYM67XI Mathilde

    In, even if not a fan of the belly-strip. Love all those pieces as separates, and enjoy it en her. Except for belly… It’s okay, but just this time. I feel this could have been so much better without the belly strip ! There were other ways to make this outfit more youthful…

  • http://www.facebook.com/RocketStarling Ashley Ellen Wilson

    she looks like she walked out of the Goodwill dressing room. shut that shit down. ugly, ill-fitting pleated pants make her look super scrawny and skeletal. OUT fo sho.

  • BobStPaul

    Out.  Over-sized, under-fitted,and the hair makes it worse.

  • mjude

    its late afternoon & i am being nice, so IN.

  • Little_Olive

    Maybe if she wasn’t swimming in it

  • Dhammadina

    I love the top but those look like droopy old man pants that belong on some geezer drinking from 10 AM on at the clubhouse. Even though the shoes and sunglasses are great, it’s an out.   

  • http://iamthelizardqueen.wordpress.com Lizzie

    I might like to tweak some of the details, but I really like it overall.  IN!

  • Sara__B

    Out. The fit on the pants is awful — they look like cheap polyester grandpa slacks — and the proportions are wrong, too. Zoe’s magic isn’t working for me with this outfit.

  • vanjar

     I agree with Tom.
    “she’s gonna need a walker to get through the Met’sCattle Baron’s Ball fundraiser.” I see someone has been watching Dallas.

  • altalinda

    In, though the fit around the waist seems off.

  • RL McGruder

    I love it.  The awkward stance is what’s ruining it for me; I’ll bet that it looks amazing on-the-go, or when she’s casually standing and chatting.

  • amywinns

    It’s an interesting look she could have pulled off if everything fit her properly (in other words, it was couture/made to fit). But it does not, and as is so often the case, poor fit ruins the party.

  • Lisa Dugan

    I think the top is fabulous but the pants fit her terribly.  She’s thin but they make her look way too frail.

  • sunandmoon24

    In! She’s working the hell out of (what is something not so pretty, actually). I don’t know how she manages it.

  • Sue_Asponte

    Well, she looks better than the model. But it’s still a strange outfit. I can’t call it either. Well, I wish she’d worn something else. So I guess that makes it an OUT.

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

    Not even the Saldana.

  • judybrowni

    SERIOUS fug.

    Any outfit that can make the model look like a cow with a pinhead — and fug up Zoe at the same time — doesn’t even merit the Goodwill rack.

    • judybrowni

      hate, hate, hate the color combo, NFL shoulder pads, zipper-revealing fly PLUS rick rack combined with metal studs, fringe, and Chinese frogs!!!!

      It’s like the ’80s ate an indigestible meal, and threw it back up.

      Purge this from my memory, please.

    • Ogden1990

      Pinhead!

  • carolynmo

    I love it! Zoe Bingbing!

  • RebeccaKW

    Out.  I actually do like the idea of the look.  I love the top and the shoes.  I like the color of the pant.  But the fit on those things is crazy.  

  • http://twitter.com/chylde bellalozza

    Out. Too much blingarama
     

  • LuluBI

    Out! Is it just me, or do those baggy cropped pants look like Banana Republic soccer mom?

  • Kimberly Cooperrider

    For some reason this is giving me Jada Pinkett Smith vibes. Like others have said, maybe if this fit better, but as is… OUT.

  • ChelseaNH

    Out.  If the pants fit better, she could have pulled it off.

  • trisker

    OUT.  the OUTfit is crazy.

  • Trebawa

    A valiant attempt, but there’s only so much ugly you can remove from some things.

    What I wrote for Diane Argon applies here also.

    Isn’t it summer? Why is she wearing something that would look great in October?

    So, it’s a NO

  • Klocked

    Close but out. I love the shoes. I think I like the top. The sunglasses and clutch are cute. I’m not going to begrudge her such simple hair and make-up when she’s so stunning. But those pants ruin everything. 

  • Adrienne Dobson

    OUT.  She looks like one of Madame Rose’s Toreodorables. 

  • eight_of_nine

    OUT. The proportions are horrid.  Make the pants slim all the way down, and the top a bit longer and less boxy, and it could have worked.

  • Eva_baby

    Ooooh, OUT.

    The top screams Dame Edna.
    The pants scream Carlito’s Way.
    The whole outfit makes me want to scream.  And not in a good way.

  • marilyn

    Out.  The pants are way too big and the sweater is way too short.  I never realized how slim she is.  But, this outfit does not compliment her.  It makes her shoulders look big and the top half of her torso very long, whild the lower part is very short.  It makes her look like she has figure problems when she does not.  She deserves better than this.

  • CheriCPat

    Horrible.  Out, out, out.  No saving this.  

  • jmorino08

    I fall in the ridiculous camp. Definitely an Out!

  • nannypoo

    The pants are awful and they don’t fit. The top is pretty but it’s too short and the sleeves make it look too wide. Her hair looks like an afterthought and she needs makeup. Bad all around.

  • http://needtherapy.tumblr.com/ skadi1

    Kind of love the jacket, DEFINITELY love the shades, but those pants are so heinous, the genetically-gifted model can’t pull them off standing still. Sadly, I think they take the whole look into out territory.

  • Elias Pineda

    in,  i like it!   

  • another_laura

    Out.  Ye gods, those pants!

  • NCDFan

    Ugh!  Those pants are hideous and ill fitting. (I don’t like them on the model either but at least they seem to fit.) The jacket? is cute and paired with a skirt would be okay. Top half in, bottom half out.

  • deliadee

    IN!  I think she looks great and much better than the model, whose top is sadly too big and pants unflattering.  Not really thrilled with the drum major feeling, but Zoe makes it work.

  • jennifervney

    I’m gonna say In! It’s not perfect, but I love all the parts. Perhaps better hair and make up would’ve erased any lingering doubts.

  • http://twitter.com/MandySCG MandyJane

    Out. I don’t like the shape of the sweater. Those jewel tones look great on her, but it’s too bad the sweater has such big poofy shoulders.. or something. It’s hard to point at just one thing that’s not working.

    OUT

  • allisankelly

    Maybe she should have cut the 3 inches off the bottom of the pants and not the bottom of the top? It’s an interesting look, but it’s an OUT.

    Was there a requirement for sunglasses and severe hair at this event? This is 2 ladies (Zoe and Jaime King) now with shades and tight hair.

  • sk8tfan

    Out. Pants look ridic. Love the shoes. The top could have been gorgeous but didn’t fit (my single biggest kvetch on the red carpet) and should have been with a skirt or part of a dress. Zoe, you let me down!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CQPXLNCBM5CZSHZZXJDHPVFS7E Buffy

    Nope!

  • poketom

    What’s a septuagenarian’s equivalent of Satan’s pants? If she had been wearing this just out on the street to go shopping or something we would be saying huzzah. But for an event I think it’s a strange choice to begin with. That top and those shoes with a dark skinny jean…

  • guest2visits

    Even though the colors are very good on her, those pants are just a terrible fit for Zoe and the model.
    I don’t think cropping the top helped, either. I like Zoe’s shoes and accessorizing much better than the model.

    the way she does it is by being thing as a whippet, great clothes hanger proportions. good face, decent dollop of style.

  • kikisayshi

    It is interesting enough, but the proportions are off and the pants are not fitted well at all. She looks large up top (which I get is supposed to be the look) and it isn’t working for her. OUT.
    ETA: Looking again, I absolutely hate the top.

  • silaria

    The top is a size too big and the pants are way too short.  Which is a pity, ’cause I want to love this.  The pants ruin it, though.  Alas, OUT.

    Also, I hate those shoes.

  • Imasewsure

    It’s weird but fun but it’s only IN with the shades on!

  • leave_Blake_alone

    Wait, really? This is an easy IN for me. I think it’s saucy and a little chic while really not being that aging at all.

  • sashaychante

    OUT  Those pants have GOT to go.  I don’t really understand this length of pant.  Are they pants?  Are they shorts?  Did they shrink?  Are they too long?  GET RID OF THEM!

  • Candigirl1968

    OUT.  Due to the strange proportions of the big boxy sweater and how it looks on her tiny frame, coupled with the small “accidentally got shrunk in the dryer” pants, this looks like an accidentally ill fitting outfit rather than a “look.” 

  • unbornfawn

    OUT. The fit is terrible on those pants and those shoulders are too big on her and the hair is too severe.

    Oooh. At first I said, OUT, but then she put the sunglasses on and I thought it might be an IN.

    Then I came to my senses and decided, nah, it’s still too out-of-proportion and weird.

    Out.  Society matron in her seventies, FROM the seventies.  Nope.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    Well, I love the color combination of blue and green.  The jacket is fantastic, except the proportions just don’t seem quite right to me.  The pants look too big and too wrinkly.  Love the shoes.  Her hair seems a little too severe, and her accessories are just boring.  She doesn’t look happy or comfortable, so for me, it is an OUT.

  • curiouserandcuriousest

    If it’s the gut reaction you’re after, I’m afraid it’s an OUT. The fit on those pants bothers me. A lot.

    It’s never In when I can see the top of your zipper.  Oh, Zoe, my illusions about your invulnerability are shattered.  I’m going off to mourn in sad and lonely splendor.

  • phrenk

    She looks so pleased with herself that I am coerced into giving this an IN.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joy.yeager Joy Yeager

    That crotch is INSANE, the jacket is too short on her and fits wonky, and her hair is so tight-it’s giving ME a headache…OUT.

  • demidaemon

    OUT. The proportions are all wrong here, and those pants look a size too big. I agree with the fellow commenters–it looked better on the model.

  • Joey Melliza

    its working but not WERQing — maybe she should’ve re-considered the pants.

  • Cheri Lee

    IN. I love the sunnies and the clutch with this look.

    Out.

    OUT

  • teensmom99

    would be better if her pants fit.

  • jw_ny

    OUT

    I could almost get behind this look if the pants weren’t so odd.  These remind me of cheap ’70′s men’s polyester pants, aside from the length, especially at the waist band.  Something more fitted may have been better, idk.   There are elements of the top that I like, but not really diggin’ the linebacker shoulders.

  • Beardslee

    OUT, on the principle that stylists should dress their clients in season.  That shirt is too heavy.
    Come January, all we’ll be seeing is strappy sandals and pastel chiffons.

  • Jennifer Hofstetter

    I would say the look is in, but the fit seems all wrong to me, so OUT.

  • Solokitty

    I think it’s an out for me  because it just looks more like a September outfit v. a June one. 

  • http://twitter.com/WDLFMemphis WDLF

    Those pants are dreadful on her.  I love her, but *lowering my voice to the tiniest whisper as to not arouse the slumbering fashion gods* it’s out.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    You know, in the little cropped photo it wasn’t so bad but one look at those pants and its got to be OUT!
    The pants are so bad they make the top look good, and I’m not crazy about the top.

  • M Carlson

    In. I like.Sharp and sassy.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mary-Stone/100001328135240 Mary Stone

    big issue is the belly flash, it’s a cropped top sure, but it’s still too short for her, she’s got a longer torso than the model.  Also the pants do not fit, they’re a little too big in the waist, and I think the rise may be a bit too long for her as well. The combination makes them look baggy where they should be smooth.  Love the shoes though.

    It’s an out for me.

    LOVE.

  • crash1212

    I’m going with OUT. There were some interesting ideas here, but the execution is just….off. Everything looks too big – I know it’s supposed to be that way (maybe) – but here is just looks….too big. Also, the cut of those pants is just not very flattering. Colors are pretty – but – OUT.

  • HK4Seven

    OUT!  The pants are too big, the jacket is too short, and the strip of belly showing on something that to me reads winter wear is tacky.

  • saanrio

    OUT!  Vuitton is not impressing me, and sadly to say, neither is Zoe in this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=601016544 Amy J Albin

    Love the top on her… the pants not so much.

  • Aly Light

    OUT

  • aimee_parrott

    OUT.  The fit on those pants is making me sad.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=713709401 Randy Noak

    No thanks.

  • Susan Crawford

    I think the problem is that the proportion is skewed. The top is wide-shouldered, embellished, and demands some balance on the bottom. The pants are great, but they seem too minimal, too skimpy and far less powerful to show off the top. I would have gone with a slightly fuller cut, a bit longer, and maybe in black to offset and balance the top.

    Love the shoes, love the sunnies, love Ms. Saldana!

    I’m giving this a lower-case “in”.

  • librarygrrl64

    Hate it if for no other reason than the proportions are off (or totally wrong for her). OUT.

  • TieDye64

    OUT. Model is wearing it better. Words I never thought I’d utter.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jahna.peloquin Jahna Peloquin

    The out-sized jacket and pulled back hair make her look like a pinhead, and she is swimming in those pants. OUT

  • Erin Nice

    I love it. A big IN.

  • nancy

    Out- nothing fits. The pants really ruin it, she looks like she has absolutely no hips, they bag & sag in odd places. The jacket has way too much stuff glomped on it. Glomped. But I love the shades. 

  • Ezmartin

    Zoe works her magic again. In. Would have been out on just about any1 else.

  • cleep1000

    Much more chic as seen on the model, with longer sleeves and belly covered. Zoe’s version looks like it has shoulder pads or is just much puffier in that area. The whole thing gives her a stumpy feel, and she’s definitely not a stumpy girl. OUT.

  • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

    Sorry, Zoe. OUT.  Cool shoes, though.

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    IN!  My only critique is the pants don’t fit correctly.  The crotch is too long/big.  Otherwise, a lovely look.

  • bitterk

    This was a close vote?  Yikes!

  • yulaffin

    I like it but not on her.  Looks better on the model.

  • Arelis Víctor Garro

    In
    no matter the details she looks good

  • Giustina Pileggi

    IN! sassy and refreshing.
