In or Out: Dianna Agron in Louis Vuitton

Posted on July 12, 2012

We are once again holding the style fate of a starlet in our hands and we want to treat it gently, like a baby chick. You see, we’ve long held that Dianna here plays it way too safe and that she’s suffering from a misconception that, in order to look classy and not slutty, one must wear very boring or simple outfits, like a slightly stylish Amish girl. To hell with that, says us. You can be stylish and still maintain that virginal quality you prize, girl. You just need to learn to be a little adventurous with things like print and color. At least, that’s what we always said. Now we’re not so sure.


Dianna Agron attends the Louis Vuitton Celebrates the Yayoi Kusama Art Exhibit Opening at the Whitney Museum in New York City in a Louis Vuitton dress.

Let’s be blunt (as if that was something new for us): this just isn’t working. We’re all for adventurous pattern and color, but it’s the shape of this thing that wounds us so; as in: she doesn’t have a shape in this thing. We might like the print (although the colors aren’t really speaking to us), but she has trivets welded to her chest and darlings? That’s not a good look for anyone.

But Di! PLEASE keep trying! Do you see how kind we were here? We didn’t make fun of you at all!

We’ll leave that to our readers, of course.

IN! It’s interesting and head-turning and colorful you BITCHES!


OUT! A shiny, wrinkled, colorful SACK.

Anne Hathaway’s attention-grabber of a dress rated an IN from the Bitter Kittens.

    • Sobaika

      Pure fug. She has a great face for makeup though.

    • formerlyAnon

      Oh, so out.

      Without the shiny “trivets”, faux pocket flaps and wrinkles, I might have been a little conflicted. Maybe.

    • Katherine Pisarro-Grant

      That is one ugly dress. Much more Forever 21 than Vuitton. And why is she holding it like that?? Those long, narrow pockets are odd. The shoes are clunky, and her lipstick clashes. OUT.

      • fungstyle

        Spot on with the F21 comment. I thought to myself, “didn’t I have that about 8 years ago in college?” 

    • RebeccaKW

      I like her makeup and hair.  Very glam.  But damn that dress is assaulting me with it’s ugliness.  Out.

    • MK03

      That is an aggressively ugly dress.

      • Kiltdntiltd

         i know!  Its like that dress went out and took extension courses at college to learn how to be MORE ugly.  Lessons learned, obviously.

        • SouthernGirlRena

          At the risk of sounding like a stalker, I have to say you are one of my favorite posters (or is it commenters?).  You are hilarious but never mean spirited.    

          • Kiltdntiltd

            Hey Rena!
            Thanks so much for the compliment. I am really quite flattered.

      • Introspective

        and she paired it with shoes so ugly they look angry. the hair and makeup are great. everything below the neck is a nightmare.

    • PeggyOC

      Out.  I want to put three cups of coffee on her chest, and the fit is just tragic.  Good hair and makeup, so at least someone on her style team is earning their keep.

    • MilaXX

      OUT! I know she tried but the eye shadow is too heavy, the shoes are once again to heavy & clunky. The dress I would give a pass on if it wasn’t a wrinkled mess and she wasn’t posing with her thumbs stuck in the pocket. The hair is the only thing I like here.

    • Anathema_Device

      Without the Iron Man chest portal thingies and without the wrinkling, this could be good. Also, not loving the hair and makeup. So, that’s more bad than good: Out.

      (I do like the idea of the dress and the print, though.)

      • laylagalise

        Hideous Iron Man dress was the first thing I thought of!

        • Sierra Delta

          I thought the control panel of Battlestar Galactica had been miniaturized and implanted on her chest.  Cylons are notoriously poor couturiers.

    • alyce1213

      Out.  I like her a lot, but this is just hideous; makes me just want to look away.  

    • unbornfawn

      OUT. Enough said.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      OUT for the dress.  But damn if from the neck up she isn’t WERQing it.  That dress looks like a craft project gone awry.  

    • Ann M. Erickson

      Out. Unnecessary pooch there.

    •árez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      More than the print or the shape (she’s young enough to pull out a dress that changes her shape a little), what really bothers me is the fabric. It’s a bit on the shiny side and it looks a little wrinkled. OUT

    • SpcilK

      Out -That dress is a petri dish come to life. The shoes don’t deserve mention, but her face and hair are very dramatic.

    • emily

      OUT. It’s just bad. Doesn’t fit right, no shape, borders on making her look like she’s hiding extra pounds. 

    • 3boysful

      It’s all just a bit much–intense eye color, wild-ish hair, intense dress.  Something needed toning down.  If the dress had been a bit more fitted, and the shoes not so clunky, it might’ve worked. 

      So, I guess that’s an OUT, but a could’ve been?

    • Diana

      Hair and makeup look so pretty. But that dress is shapeless and shiny and busy and BAD. Out.

    • crash1212

      OUT. So very out. Only thing I like here is the hair, which is a nice departure for her. Truth be told, this is an awful dress made awfuler by her pose – thumbs hooked in pocket slashes…seriously? back to posing 101 for you – and the trivets are an embellishment too far for me. Plus, I’m not sure that heavy eye make-up is her best friend. I kinda want that polka-dot background as wallpaper in my entry way…best part of the photo – polka dots.

      • mellorcr

        It’s like she tried to find the least flattering pose possible.  Or the designer purposely put the pockets just at the joint between thigh and torso so anyone who posed with thumbs in the pockets would get a crease that would make them look like they had a brand-new baby bump!  Hate the dress, but removing pockets, flaps and that weird crap on the chest would make it tolerable.

    • megohd

      I love her face and hair. 

    • VicksieDo

      OUT on those Shoes!!!  GAWWWWD awful.  Like the hair and make up though…and the dress had potential with the color and pattern, but it’s a schmatta — shapelessly odd.

    • Katie Wolf

      It’s not sufficient to simply wear any LV at all to an LV event. Needed: print that was referential or complementary to the pop art vibe. Think deeper about where you are going and why.

      • Katie Wolf

        See: Harley Viera Newton, Lauren Santo Domingo & Sofia Coppola. They looked great and like they knew where they were.

    • Teresa M.


    • Gayer Than Thou

      OUT.  Does absolutely nothing for her figure.

    • Beardslee

      OUT.  It does her no favors.

    • BazoDee

      OUT!!!!! bad shape, bad hands in pockets and dreadful make-up and hair. 

    • Jessie Melcher Brown

      Don’t like how the dress is made either.  The seems are way too obvious and the hem looks bunchy.  Just don’t feel it was constructed well.  I mean if I made a print dress (I do sew but only for a hobby) you have to line up patterns and make sure you don’t turn boobies into bullseyes.

    • teensmom99

      It’s so awful when your new dress gets caught in the rain and it turns out it’s not waterproof.
      Also, that neck is hard to wear for any one with anything in the chest area.  Just not flattering even if it were in a solid.

    • ms_kat

      She looks like she’s wearing a lady version of The Iron Man suit with a very girly arc reactor. Just no.

    • AuntieAnonny



    • AthenaJ

      O to the U T! Looks like a bad project runway design – Multicolored sack with trivets on the chest (although if this had been a result of the potato sack challenge it might have gotten a pass).

    • Kyle Crawford

      wow.. did she lose a bet ?

    • pookiesmom

      why is she wearing SO MUCH MAKEUP?

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      I barely noticed the omega-class fug that was that dress. Did she borrow Homer Simpson’s make up gun or what? And is she wearing a dainty doll wig? Guh.

    • AC

      OUT. This is not her look. And those shoes made me die a little inside.

    • chitowndg

      Out: funny, she looks like Mrs. Obama here, i.e. with the waistband too high.

    • GorgeousThings

      That dress is hideous, but the worst thing is the dress combined with the too-heavy eye makeup. It just all combines on her to look matronly.

    • Joyce VG

      OUT it’s awful.  The dress gives her no shape, it’s wrinkled, it’s ugly and the jewels make it look like we’re seeing her robot organs.

    • Coralie Legister

      I was actually pretty excited when I saw the top half of the 1st photo but then I scrolled down & she lost her waist in favour of sad pleats, pocket flaps and a strange hemline. The shoes are dull. OUT!

    • Susi R

      OUT. Couldn’t even get past that makeup to really take a look at the dress.

    • Ashley Ellen Wilson

      OUT–not based on her dress but on the sheer amount of make up on her face–makeup that is not doing her any favors!

    • librarygrrl64

      OUT. What is with that “waistline????” Too high to sit at the waist, too low to be Empire. That middle ground never looks good on ANYONE.

    • Spicytomato1

      She really has a knack for hitting all the wrong notes. Ha! Glee joke! I meant fashion-wise but to be honest I’m not a fan of her voice either. The face and hair looks like it’s trying to be sultry, and I’m not sure what the dress is trying to be, other than maybe a tablecloth under the trivets TLo mentioned. OUT.

    • Paula Pertile

      What the hell is that thing on the front? Its like a bad PR project. 

    • Rhonda Hanson

      OUT. she is gorgeous but i think the makeup is too heavy. not digging the dress at all.

    • snarkykitten

      it looks like a project runway disaster. heavy outlined pockets! wild print! weird beadwork! satin-y fabric not steamed!

    • butterflysunita

      Dress looks like a caterpillar pupa.  Makeup too heavy.  Hairstyle not so great.  Big OUT.  

    • Violina23

      Funny that everyone seems to love the makeup — I think it’s WAY too heavy, especially around the eyes. The dress? Yick. Not working. I feel like she’s a villian on an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and if you break the stone in the middle she’ll disintegrate…

      • MilaXX

         I think the makeup is more of a night time or dressier look, especially that heavy, smokey eye. It just doesn’t go with a light day time dress.

    • TheOriginalLulu

      I don’t know, I feel like there was potential there, but the dress needed to be edited. It looks like a bad PR entry. Color! Pattern! Appliques! Faux pockets! Real pockets! It just looks awfully cheap for something designer. Somebody at LV needs to put down the crack pipe.
      The good news is she’s still pretty and her hair and makeup are good.

    • jimmack

      Oh me, oh my. It looks like one of those smocks they gibe you at the hair salon. Are racoon eyes back in style again? Or it is not remarketed at a zombie look? OUT OUT OUT. Make it go away, my eyes hurt.

    • jmorino08

      Out! The proportions all wrong, it looks heavy and the colors and shape don’t suit her at all. Also? Too much makeup.

    • plinkiedoodle

      Oh, darling please have someone fix your hair next time.  Sometimes when we blow dry our own hair, it ends up in a funny shape.  So it’s best to let the professionals do the hair.  TTFN!

    • artgirl9

      Looks like Craft Abuse to me.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      Yeah….no….OUT. This somehow makes her look bulky when we all know she’s thin as a rail. Gotta let this one go, sweetie. It is NOT working for you.

    • Lilithcat

       You just need to learn to be a little adventurous with things like print and color. At least, that’s what we always said. Now we’re not so sure.

      No, you were right.  Just not this print and this color.

    • Jangle57

      I’m surprised there’s a single doubt in your minds that this look is anything but OUT to the max. 

    • CassandraMortmain

      That is a seriously ugly dress.  Just pure fug.  She can’t help but look pretty, but the makeup is way too heavy for her.  It truly looks like a mask – she doesn’t even look like herself.  I do adore the shoes (and am apparently the only one who does).

    • mhleta

      Out. The medallions look like circuit boards meant to summon the mother ship. The character shoes are not good with this, although they’d be very cute with a shorter dress. And, as TLo says, the proportions of the dress are not flattering. Ladies, satin + flash photography is never your friend. Don’t wear it on the red carpet. You’ll hate yourself. We’ll hate yourself. Just, no.

    • MissAnnieRN

      No.  And what the Hell with the hem?  Does no one in Hollywood care about proper hems?  Or is this a case of a borrowed dress that was hemmed temporarily and couldn’t be hemmed permanently?  If I ever become a Hollywood Starlet with T & Lo as my stylists, this will never happen.  We will not commit Hem Murder.  No.  It shall not come to pass.

    • CPK1

      wow. such an unnecessary dress. Shame, she is super cute othewise

    • Amanda in Austin

      LOVE LOVE LOVE her hair and makeup. The dress is not great.

    • Aly Light

      I think she looks great. I mean, honestly, I can’t see what there is to criticize here. IN.

    • MajorBedhead

      The print on the dress doesn’t even line up at the seams. It’s hideous. I do love her hair and makeup, but that dress is just awful, so it’s an out for me.

      I rather like the shoes, but I think they’d be better suited to dress pants or even dressy jeans. 

    • PinkLemon

      those lips are WAY too heavy

    • twocee

      I can’t believe this was an In/Out post.  This is so out it has passed left field and is heading for the exits.

      And those shoes do not work with it AT ALL.

    • phrenk

      I don’t think I’d like this dress on anyone, though otherwise she looks pretty.  OUT.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Out. The trivets are horrible and take your thumbs out of the pockets. I like the print though.

    • mjude

      i’m more bothered by the makeup.

    • jennyv

      I say In. I love a printed dress, and props to her for not wearing silly putty pumps with it. 

    • Jessica Goldstein

      OUT. She gets props for the effort, and I love the colors. But the trivets and shape are awful, as you say.

    • Nicole Renee

      Ug-ly. And clodhopper on her feet to (heh) boot. I agree about the good, if a little heavy, makeup.

    • Dominique Canning

      That dress is really bad. Out. 

    • call_me_schmeg

      ah, finally a dress you can rest a tea kettle on. OUT.

    • marilyn

      A soft, kind OUT.  The colors are too harsh for her, and the dress does not fit.  I am not sure if there’s a big wrinkle going across her stomach or what.  It is good she is trying, but she needs a better stylist.  If she does not have one, she needs to get one.

      I realize she is new to the world of borrowing from designers. So, she may have to take what she gets to some degree. However, it would be better to wear a more attractive dress from a less famous design house, than show up like this. if push comes to shove, she can just wear her own clothes. She should not compromise like this.

    • lesmaha

      definitely out.  

    • blue

      I guess I’d have to go with OUT. I do like the dress and the shoes and the makeup. But the outfit as a whole doesn’t work. The dress is too casual for that full face of (flawless!) makeup. It just looks odd.

    • Larkin21

      OUT. Sadly because I love her but nothing’s working. Hope she keeps trying interesting looks, though.

    • Judy_S

      OUT, but I blame it all on Louis Vuitton. She looks like luggage from the neck down.

    • filmcricket

      Out. The base colour is a great one for her and I dig the shoes, but I’m not sure anyone could make that dress look good. It would have to be a graduate of Advanced Clothes Horsing, that’s for sure.

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      it’s too short waisted. when they tailored it for someone shorter than model height, they tailored it wrong.

      in other news, kusama has been institutionalized for about forty years. yes, she still works but that has been her life. i’m not really thinking of the abovenoted, here [she seems kind of uncalculating], but i wonder what kusama thinks of her show as a red carpet upon which a bunch of people can force the focus of attention onto themselves. i dont know, it just seems jarring to me. i’m sure, btw, that almost all of these people dont know her circumstances, but still.

    • janetjb


      I think the print is overwhelming her plus the color isn’t working for her. 

    • Julie Chase

      Terrible. She’s so gorgeous though, SOMETHING has to work for her.

    • Deborah Lipp

      It’s close but no cigar.

    • Dixie Murphy Ross

      Out, but I have to say I really like her hair and makeup.

    • Melissa Brogan

      I want to  like this for being adventurous, but … ugh. OUT.

    • lovelyivy

      Out. She often has issues with fit and silhouette. Every time she tries something edgy it’s pretty bad. That said, it’s a reason I kind of like her. She seems really normal, like a pretty girl who is just not focused on her looks enough to spend 10 hours primping.  I dig that about her, and it enables me to ignore her clothes.

      That said, if there is a stylist that actually pays to give her advice on clothes then that person is clearly evil, and potentially her enemy.

    • karena10

      Take your hands out of your pockets!  That won’t make this look into an “IN”, but it will stop it from pulling across your hips.

    • cleep1000


    • afabulous50

      Out with a capital “O”.  Diana honey your face is divine, but that dress…

    • stagmania

      Out. Her makeup is way too heavy.

    • TSkot

      Not my favorite dress, but she looks great overall:  IN

    • a Studio by the Sea

      So ugly.  Almost an abomination.  How could anyone with eyes in their head go out in that?  I can almost imagine it growing tentacles and reaching around to kill it’s wearer.

    • judybrowni

      what a pretty girl

      what an ugly dress 

    • Erin

      Nice try, but OUT.  Funky proportions do not make you look virginal, honey.

    • another_laura

      Out. And I have no comment to add to T Lo’s analyis, either!

    • Sara__B

      OUT. Is that a waist seam I see? Too high for a waist and too low for empire? Lovely Dianna looks shapeless, over-embellished, and over made-up. (And I believe my daughter wears those shoes when she performs in community theatre since she’s very short and dances in shockingly high heels to look taller.)

    • Kerry McCombs

      I love the hair and makeup but hate the dress and hate the shoes. OUT.

    • altalinda

      A few demerits, but on the whole, In.

    • kimmeister

      Out. The makeup is making her look like Carrie Underwood in the last pic.  Not that Carrie Underwood isn’t gorgeous, but Dianna doesn’t need to look like anybody else to be gorgeous.

    • demidaemon

      OUT. The shape is awful. It’s giving her a faux-pregnancy bump. I actually don’t mind the other design details, like the print and the embellishment. It’s just too sack-like.

    • SummerSquash

      In. I would totally wear this, though yes, it does need to be ironed.

    • kikisayshi

      I can see this working on someone who really knows how to wear clothes, but Diana, honey, this is SO not your dress. Big fat OUT!

    • Louise Bryan

      Sorry, Dianna, that is an unfortunate dress paired with unfortunate shoes.  Not good, dear.

    • CarolinLA

      Love the look from the empire waist up – love the makeup.  

    • Stella Zawistowski

      Bejeweled sack. OUT.

    • Pamela

      Isn’t she a little young to need that much makeup trowelled onto her face?   She may not be as young as a Fanning sister but shouldn’t she have a fresher look?

    • SophieCollier

      OUT.  That is all kinds of unflattering, from the too-high waistline and ill-placed pockets, to the eye-rending pattern and gewgaws on the front.  Her makeup is a bit creepy too.  And those Franken-Jane shoes are oogly.  

    • Liana Brooks

      It almost works, but that background makes it worse (not her fault). Trying to look at just the dress is hard, so… OUT – fails to meet expectations.

    • ChelseaNH

      OUT!  Too much makeup and not enough shape.

    • guest2visits

      I think from the waist up she looks fantastic; I like the dress except where it looks puckered and pulled at the hem.
      And she’s just making it worse with the hands. The shoes don’t help either, too heavy, too dull.

    • MoHub

      Scrolldown fug. The top looked so promising, but then …

    • Charmella…a DIVA at large!

      Oh Lord NO! The trivets, the pocket-flap things…the side pockets…the queer hemline. Oh Lord NO!! Very much O-U-T!

    • Rebecca Henretta

      Reminds me of that scifi The Andromeda Strain. Basically she has been overtaken by an alien virus.

    • AlexisPayne

      It’s hard to get past all that war paint, but once you do, that dress is doing her no favors. OUT

    • Merneith

      Out. That dress is one macaroni tube away from being a Very Special Mother’s Day Project.

    • Valeria Josy Rivera


    • portlandmermaid

      I want her to be wearing a short white dress with tiny red polka dots to match the background. 

    • Scott Isaacs

      Please. IN. Snaps for taking a great risk. (Yes, I feel a need to point out that this is not a sarcastic comment.)

      I know where she was going with the makeup, but the eyes were just a skosh too heavy. Less mascara next time? Lips look gorge.

      Ever the contrarian, flying in the face of bitter kittendom…

    • Maya

      oh out out out! it does look like an odd bag.

    • littlemac8

      Ewwww, gross dress.  No redeeming features on the dress.  Makeup looks to heavy for me but I guess a girl her age can have fun experimenting!

    • Eovaai

      OUT. Awful, shapeless dress.

    • Verascity

      OUT, and I’m surprised by the love for her makeup, because I think it looks like she spackled it on. She has a great face for a natural look, not so much this.

    • Matt Bailer


    • TomBord

      Trivets……bwhahahhaha. excellent.  Vuitton put the V in triVet! 

    • Buffy

      It might look better if she wasn’t holding the pockets like that.  On second thought, it wouldn’t.  Out!

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      How old is this person?  Because that make up makes her look like she’s headed for a truck stop.

    • TieDye64

      Easy OUT. Between the lack of shape and the welded trivets it’s fug as hell. 

    • aristida_girl

      Out. Sack.

    • frankystein123

      TRAGIC… everything.

    • Bozhi

      Just because it says LV does not make it good.  The thing looks halfway between a weird cleric’s tunic and an apron.

    • Laura

      OUT. Hate the hair and make-up too

    • Sau-Chih Feng

      I think there’s too much hate for the dress. It’s obviously not working for Dianna, because she doesn’t have the body shape or the fierceness to own it. I can see it looking pretty fabulous on somebody else, maybe Mila Kunis, but Dianna is being eaten by it. Out.

    • NurseEllen

      OUT.  It’s an awful dress.  And I hate her makeup, too.

    • Frances

      That’s hideous.  If that had an actual waist and the skirt did something… not that, maybe we could talk.

    • bailey debruynkops


    • RzYoung

      Oh gosh, OUT, poor thing. I quite like the idea of the shoes, but they’re still ugly. The make up’s foul and so is the dress

    • DCSheehan

      Poor girl, no amount of tugging is going to give that dress any decent hang. Out.

    • Phyllis Craine

      That dress is shamefully poorly made there are puckers everywhere!  And it looks like polyester charmeuse instead of silk, which baffles me if it’s LV.

    • DeGuz

      Sack, OUT.  

    • Patricia Gillett

      OU?T. Not a great look for Di but she’s still more interesting fashion-wise than Lea. Fab hair, though.

    • Jen Hofstetter

      OUT. I want to like it, but because it’s SO shapeless, all I see is a scarf pattern, not a dress pattern. The way the black outlines the purple reminds of some vintage scarves my grandmother gave me, and I don’t mean that to be complimentary. Also, the weird broach thingies are way distracting, the shoes aren’t right, and the make up, while good, is too heavy for this look IMO. I like the hair though.

    • aimee_parrott

      OUT.  So OUT.  She’s shapeless and shiny and the shoes are making her ankles look thick (which they are clearly NOT, so BOO SHOES).  And while the makeup is okay, it looks a bit heavy, and I hate the hair. 

    • ThaliaMenninger

      I wanna see it from the side. Does it make her look like she has a muffin top? How is that even possible?

    • PrincessSlaya

      I think it’s more of a “Girl, That’s Not Your Dress” moment than true Fug.  That dress is too old for her!

      • sleah_in_norcal

        and way too ugly for her.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      I gotta say OUT.  The dress is ugly to begin with, but her shoving her thumbs in the pockets just makes it worse, shape-wise.  The makeup looks like it was put on with a putty knife.  Shoes are meh.  Hair is nice, though.

    • AWS

      Oh. Someone removed the dress Cleopatra was buried in and put it on Dianna Agron.


    • Laura Hartman

      OUT. It’s looks bad, why is she hol;ding it like that? To make the pattern visible?
