Eva Amurri Martino in Tory Burch

Posted on August 22, 2012

Susan Sarandon’s clone daughter deftly straddles the line between ladylike and hot:

Eva Amurri Martino attends the Friends To Mankind’s 2nd annual 18 For 18 Charity Event And Fundraiser in head-to-toe Tory Burch.

Tory Burch ‘Everly’ High Heel Pump

Love that dress. We normally hate T-straps but those shoes are all kinds of adorable/fierce. They’re perfect choices to go with this dress, because they pull out that blue-gray from the other colors without looking too matchy. We’d applaud her stylist’s matching skills, but it’s not that hard when you’re pulling from the same collection. Our only criticism is that her hair needs a little zhuzhing.

And Eva? We hope you thanked Mama profusely for passing on that spectacular rack to you.

      Beautiful all around. I never noticed it before, but she has very expressive eyes. 

    • Judy_S

      The fact that the shoes are too big really bothers me. Otherwise, very nice.

      • ballerinawithagun

        Yes, the shoes are way too big, but they are beautiful! Cute dress.

      • Sobaika

        Most celebs’ shoes don’t fit. It makes the eye twitch, but I think it’s because most of them are loaners.

        Or, they all have sweaty feet and can’t keep them from sliding forward. We’ve all been there.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Alexandra-Glorioso/10025811 Alexandra Glorioso

          Yea, what is the DEAL with celebs wearing the wrong shoe size on the red carpet? You’d think even loaner shoes would come in more than one size?

      • http://profiles.google.com/gillianholroyd gillian holroyd

        How difficult is it to stuff cotton balls in the toe?

        • Judih1

          Or buy a pair of shoes! It’s not like they can’t afford it.

          I think the dress and shoes don’t go together, Color wise yes, style wise no

          • http://twitter.com/pennyeager Penny Eager

            Yeah totally agree – the shoes are more work-y, and the dress is so Spring and fresh, and the colours don’t quite match. I’d love those shoes with a really amazing skirt and crisp shirt, for example.

      • Jessica O’Connell

        Some people seem to wear heels a size or a half-size up because they find them more comfortable. Maybe she just falls into that category?

    • rissa42210

      uh, and her shoes don’t fit!

    • http://eclectictsunami.blogspot.in/ Cassie

      She’s fabulous. I’m not a fan of Tory Burch, generally, but everything here is working like gangbusters.

    • MilaXX

      She could have done without the push up bra. There’s a slight baby head thing going on. Also? SHOES! I love these and would wear them myself, but I’d like them more if they fit. Can designers or stylist not figure out that the shoes would look better if they actually fit the celeb wearing them?

      • http://profiles.google.com/ameliaheartsu Amelia Logan

        Maybe it’s not a push up bra, You can have curves and still be thin too. And she’s got some hips.

        • MilaXX

          I don’t think it’s a push up bra or discount a thin woman having a good rack. My entire family, thick and thin alike are all c or d cups. It’s just that the only way they go all baby head is when they are intentionally positioned that way.

    • dickylarue

      While it’s tough trying to fill Mother’s shoes, filling her bra appears to be manageable. 

    • ChiliP

      She looks very pretty, and yes, the spectacular cleavage adds some sexiness. Girl’s got some good genes. I would be more on board with the shoes if they fit. How do these ladystars walk around in too-big shoes without getting blisters?

      • MoHub

         Or walking out of them and falling over.

    • jenuwefa

      Why does everyone wear their shoes two sizes too big?

      • MilaXX

         They’re loaners and apparently stylist don’t request shoes by size, just by style

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

          Wow. Really? No size request for something as critical as shoes? Especially since actresses seem to be either teeny tiny (Reese Witherspoon probably wears a size 5) or Amazonian (Charlize Theron probably wears a size 10). I can’t imagine just saying, “hey, can you send over some shoes?”

        • formerlyAnon

           And, as I feel like I am about to begin harping on continually: these events almost always take place in Big Cities! With messenger services! and competing overnight delivery firms! How darn hard can it be to get the right size, even if, for some inscrutable reason they are willing to loan you several pairs of expensive shoes, but not two sizes of each pair at a time?

          I wonder if any celebrity ever says “I will not wear shoes that do not fit and force me to walk awkwardly and risk tripping?” and gets away with it?

          • http://profiles.google.com/ameliaheartsu Amelia Logan

            Maybe that’s why there are so many celebrities in silly putty shoes.

            • http://twitter.com/thesquizz Lauren

               Oh! Because the putty actually takes the shape of their feet, thus enabling them to wear the shoe without the typical shoe size issues! And then later, they can press them on the funny pages and stretch out the comics.

      • http://twitter.com/dollsaga Dollsaga

        as the feet wont blister in bigger sized shoes.

      • makeityourself

        Back in the dark ages, when I used to pull clothes for fashion shows, we always requested the shoe in a size 8.5.  Most of the models then wore around an 8 or so, and if they really wore a 10 they just crammed their feet into them.  It was just too much work to select a shoe that worked with the garment, and then have to specify a size as well.  Everybody just took it in stride.  (Sorry.)

        Maybe similar guidelines still apply today.

    • janetjb

      Fun shoes, but I’d probably wouldn’t wear them with such a summery dress.

      • dress_up_doll

        This. That’s actually bothering me more than the two sizes too big issue.

        • Sara Loud

           Third this.

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

             Fourth this. I don’t like those shoes with that dress for that exact reason. Really bugs me!

      • librarygrrl64

        Yes, they’re more tailored/businessy to me. I would wear the hell out of these at work.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          These shoes would go well with Dmitri’s dress from last week’s PR challenge.

      • mshesterp

        I’m not going to 5th this (although I totally just said “Fifth this” in my head,) but agreed.  I love them, but they don’t work with the dress.  A heeled sandal, please.

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

      But why are the shoes so big? WHY? I know they give them to you free. Insist on your actual size!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

      I love both the dress and shoes but actually don’t like them together. To me, the dress is summery and wants a strappy sandal. The shoes are fall and want a pencil skirt and a hot cashmere sweater.

      And like the others – yes, hate that the shoes are two sizes too big. What’s up with that? Can’t they just send over 2 pairs (since shoe sizes are so wildly inconsistent) and the person could wear the pair that fits and send the others back? I do this with Zappos all the time since they have free shipping both ways.

      • Tatiana Luján

        I agree.

      • tereliz

        I think in general free shoes are a size 9. That’s the sample size, but since model feet are usually bigger (hey, being 5’9″ means ya gots big feet) than tiny starlet feet, there’s a huge discrepancy. I’m betting most of these actress ladies are a solid 7. What grosses me out is how many feet have been in those shoes before yours. *shudder*

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

          That’s interesting. I guess it’s lucky that I’m an 8.5-9 so if I ever become famous, the free shoes will actually fit! :-) But seriously, I would rather buy my own shoes than wear ill-fitting free ones. I can’t stand shoes that don’t fit.

          • kimmeister

            My 8.5/9 feet are in line waiting for those free samples too!

    • http://aldonsusi.blogspot.com/ Susi R

       I’m sorry but I hate the shoes and the fact that they are too big for her!

    • mjude

      she looks so pretty then i see shoes that dont fit.  that drives me crazy.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Awesomeness! Except for the too big shoes, perfectly turned out.

    • http://twitter.com/emilyf007 emily

      Why exactly are her shoes 2 sizes too big?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/S5BW7JN6CKPUJWQUSN42SOKYEA Sam

        So do they put on those big shoes for the pictures and then step off camera and into shoes that fit?

        • formerlyAnon

           I had a sudden image of a row of Nike, Adidas, etc. sneakers waiting for their owners at the end of the step & repeat, said owners all sailing into the event like a fleet of ’80s era office workers in their suits, dresses and running shoes.

    • belfebe

      Gorgeous.  The shoes are too big.  But gorgeous.

    • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

      God, I would kill for those shoes! They’re gorgeous. The dress is lovely, too. Well done. 

    • formerlyAnon

      LOVE the shoes. Agree with you on the hair.

    • Judy_J

      That photo of the shoes is killing me.  I love them, but they are just too big for her dainty little foot.  I can hear the slap-slap-slapping of her heels with each step.  Dress is cute, she has nice cleaveage; little apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

    • kschwarting

      I think she looks lovely, and she has a great figure–but does the dress make her look a little thick around the middle in the last photo?

    • Sara__B

      Love the shoes, but not with that dress, and a less aggressive push-up bra would have made the dress classier.

    • http://twitter.com/jenontheedge Jen on the Edge

      The shoes are too big. Otherwise, she’s damn near perfect.

    • PinkLemon

       this dress is a bit too 90’s for me….

    • rab01

      Why is she holding one shoulder higher than the other?

    • Imasewsure

      She’s one of my favs because she’s cute and sexy but I think she could clone her mom’s haircuts too because the layered slightly shaggy cuts would work a lot better on her (gorgeous/cute) face… love the dress…

    • Little_Olive

      I really don’t like the pairing of dress and shoes. 

      And I don’t love the print on the dress.

      Blah. 

    • Rand Ortega

      Gorgeous, full stop. But these stylists have got to stop loaning these starlets wrong sized shoes! Get the right size @ your fittings, or some heel inserts, it’s not that hard!

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      I really hate it when starlets point their little tootsies together like a 3 year old. 

      • Susan Crawford

        Yes – it’s almost as bad as the legs-crossed-because-I-need-to-pee pose. Who dreamt these up, anyway? Did you ever see pictures of folks like Elizabeth Taylor, Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, Lauren Bacall, Audrey Hepburn and so on posing like this? Hell to the NO, because those stars knew how to WERQ. Granted, they weren’t constantly bombarded by paps and random passers-by with cell phone cameras as happens today, but still: when they were on the carpet, they were ON THE CARPET, looking every inch the star.

        Young Hollywood, you could really learn a lot from the greats.

    • librarygrrl64

      I want those shoes. WANT. And since they look at least half a size too big for Eva, I’m hoping she’ll give them to me to try on.

    • marilyn

      2 complaints:  1.  Shoes are at least 2 sizes to big.  It looks bad and must be difficult to walk in them.  2.  The print on that dress is not matched, so there are a lot of hacked up components along the seam lines.  This is Dressmamking 101, either select a fabric that is not hacked up by the pattern, or do some very meticulous piecing so the seams are not noticeable.  If this dress was in a bargain bin, I would not say anything.  But you KNOW that Tony Whats-his-name is charging an arm and a leg for it, and he owes his customers a good product.  This is not a good product.      

    • kimmeister

      Great shoes.  I think these T-straps work because the T is short.  When the T is longer, they never stay straight and end up more like Z-straps.

    • http://twitter.com/ndpndntfilm Susan Velazquez

      Really? I loathe those shoes. I see what you mean about picking up the gray but I think she could have picked something better.

    • Susan Crawford

      I really like those shoes, even though T-straps never seem to work for my foot shape. But the heel height actually looks as though a gal could walk further than the length of a red carpet. (However, is it just me, or are the shoes about a full size too big on her?)

      And really, having a mom as incredibly beautiful as Susan Sarandon is SUCH a nice way to begin a swim in the gene pool of pretty, isn’t it? Little Eva sure gives good face!

      • Susan Crawford

        I posted that the shoes were too big before scrolling down and discovering that my fellow BK’s and UBF’s had already noted this. I should have known that our savvy commentariat would be all up on that. NOTHING escapes the laser eyes of the T & Lo Followers. And for why? Because The Boys have trained us SO well.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      I like almost the whole look. I love the shoes, but not with this dress. The dress says “garden party,” while the suit says “conference room.” And why are the shoes a size too big?

      But yeah, she really looks fabulous otherwise.

    • EEKstl

      I love what she’s wearing but again with my pet peeve of too-large shoes!  What would you say, a half size or a full size too big?

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

      I honestly never noticed how much they look alike until I saw Eva’s cleavage. Mama passed on a delicious set of genes, honey – use them well!

    • l_c_ann

      The shoes may have needed to be that (too large) size lengthwise because her instep is high and anything smaller would cut off circulation to her toes.
      She is strikingly pretty and the dress is great for August.

    • alyce1213

      I love T-straps and these two-tone wingtips are beautiful – but they’re at least one full size (maybe more) too large for her.  That I hate. But she looks gorgeous.

      As to her being a clone of Susan Sarandon, there is a resemblance but she more strongly favors her father, Franco Amurri.  Really, google him.

      ETA: Wingtip pumps or Spectator pumps? Same dif?

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Yup, Eva can thank Mama for that amazing rack!  She looks charming in this, and although I’m not often a Tory Burch fan, I am a sucker for the spectator pump.

    • nannypoo

      Those enormous shoes are just plain ugly.

    • Lisa

      GORGEOUS, except, honey, you’re old enough to know when your shoes don’t fit.

      The eye makeup in the first photo is giving me an Angelina Jolie vibe. Some more volume in the hair and…

    • quiltrx

      Love the dress, love the shoes.

      What is the deal with starlets and shoes at least a size too big?

    • kahluagal

      The things you learn – the mystery of large shoes is explained.  Thanks gang! On another shoe related question, why is the stylists can be fantastic at putting the makeup, hair, accessories and outfit together, but leave the shoes as an afterthought? As dull as they can be, why wouldn’t we see more simple black flats rather than the pink showgirls or putty numbers with the insane heels? Why would you risk ruining a perfect outfit with fugly shoes.  Which would you rather – someone saying, ‘eh, dull shoes’ or ‘wonderful outfit but those shoes make me want to stab someone with a fork, stat’…

      Meh, I need to go back to finding that lipstick from the YSL perfume ad :(

    • frankystein123

      You WERQ that dress Ms. Amurri.

      Shoes are too big!

    • Athenrein

      I want those shoes so much. They’d be perfect for dressing up jeans and a t-shirt.

    • guest2visits

      Really such a simple and beautiful dress. I’m still shopping for Christina H. in my head. Am I wrong thinking this might also work
      for her too ? Too busy ?
