Kyra Sedgwick in Reed Krakoff

Posted on August 29, 2012

Miss Kyra! You got a haircut, like we’ve been begging you to do for some time now! Can we put you down on the ever-growing list of celebrities who hang on to our every word and look to us for all their style advice? We will until we hear otherwise.

Kyra Sedgwick attends the premiere of her new horror movie ‘The Possession’ at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood, California in Reed Krakoff dress.

Reed Krakoff Fall 2012 Collection

Look how fresh you look, girl! It’s perhaps impolite to say this, but we’ve never been known for our politeness, so here goes: You took at least 5 years off your face with this cut, honey.

Also, you look very fresh and sweet in your summer white, and that bangle is kickass, but we hate your shoes and we wish you’d worn a little bit more in the way of jewelry. Still! Chic, pretty and freshened up! Attagirl!

  • The dress is perfect for her. Summery and fresh without veering into Fanning territory.

  • Spicytomato1

    The hair is a big improvement compared to the fright wig of a ‘do we saw her sporting last.

    I love the dress but believe it would be better in just about any color of the rainbow (white seems too bridal, black would be too formal).

  • Sobaika

    Ooooo love the cuff. The shoes look a bit DIY.

    • dress_up_doll

      Hahaha! They do have a bit of a workshop 101 look to them. And that heel looks like a handmade prison weapon.

    • Spicytomato1

      Yes on the shoes…they look straight off Project Accessory. Only less crappy.

    • call_me_schmeg

      the straps of those shoes loop like that hemp necklace i wore back in 8th grade. don’t judge. 

  • Love the new ‘do, and that bangle is FAB!

  • I think she looks great! I love the haircut, and the dress is pretty and summery and perfect for Labor Day-ish events. Also, I don’t really have a problem with the shoes – they’re not silly-putty pumps!

    • Vickiefantastico

      Agreed! She looks fabulous!

  • MilaXX

    I like the entire look. That’s a great haircut for her. It allows her to retain her long hair but not look like she’s trying to compete with a 20 year old starlet wearing extensions. The shoe work well with the dress and I think a ring and a bracelet are more than enough jewelry for this look. She looks chic and summery .

  • mshesterp

    Would’ve taken a few inches off the hem and I hate the shoes, but Kyra has been looking really great lately–simple and chic.  Love the ‘do.

  • kimmeister

    Dress needed to be 4″ shorter and the sheer panels on the sleeves are just weird.  The bangle looks like “fun with welding.”  The hair is definitely an improvement though.

    • kschwarting

      She looks great, but sheer sleeve inserts.  Shudder.

  • Gotta say, as cute as this look is, there is something off in the construction of this dress. Some of the seaming looks a bit sloppy.

    • ballerinawithagun

      I agree.

    • I like the idea of this dress, but I hate the execution.

      Her (insert preferred adjective) shoes at least look like they fit.

      • In my case, the inserted adjective would be, bland.

  • mjude

    a summery dress, thank you jesus.  she looks adorable.

  • Judy_J

    Yes!  The new ‘do has taken years off her looks.  She looks fresh and lovely.

  • In her defense, possibly she didn’t change her hair a lot the last few years because of her TV show, The Closer.  Now that it’s ended, she’s free!!!  🙂

  • Candigirl1968

    I’m starting to wonder whether she kept the hair for The Closer.    
    Like the white dress.  It’s nice to see someone dress in a summer outfit when it’s summer, rather than in velvet or suede boots. 

  • Anathema_Device

    She does look so much better. It is a good shade of blonde, too. There are so many horrible blonde dye jobs these days, which makes her color a breath of fresh air.

    I kind of like the shoes. I would never wear them, but I think they add a summery, casual-but-still-dressy-enough vibe to the outfit.

  • Imasewsure

    She looks great but at her age (also my age) and being so skinny overall, you just can’t get away with showcasing your feet… and with ugly shoes at that….

    • birkatbaby

      you’re saying that since she has skinny feet she can’t wear shoes that showcase her feet?

      • Imasewsure

        Yes I guess I am saying that about skinny old feet… obviously she can wear anything she wants but it doesn’t look good on older super thin women most of the time – particular shoes like these which are ugly showcases for feet that probably would look fine in a different type of sandal….

        • mhleta

          Seriously? Are we looking at the same feet? Have a look at Christina Hendricks’ feet in that July Versace post if you want to see some messed up pods on a much younger woman. I actually think Kyra has exceptionally pretty and youthful feet. (Okay, now I’ve done that thing where you say the word “feet” too many times and it starts to seem like a really odd word.)

          • mhleta

            Oh, I see it now. They’re a little veiny. Well, there’s nothing to be done when this happens but to celebrate the stage of life you’re at. What’s she going to do, wear ankle boots so’s not to offend our delicate sensibilities? Screw us, right?

  • PastryGoddess

    Those shoes are clunky and remind me of my Grandma’s orthopedic shoes.  A sandal Kyra, something nice and strappy would have been much better

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Love the haircut, hate the top. It’s 90s in a bad way.

  • Elaine Lang

    5 years?   She looks like she did in “Singles,” and that was….Oh, lord.   20 years ago.    Ok, let’s go with 5 so I don’t feel so old.

  • Dress needs to be either longer or shorter. Other than that she looks good

  • I hate the length-but she’s so gorgeous.

  • Call me Bee

    So darling (if one can describe an over-50 woman as darling…!)  She looks relaxed and happy. 

    • Snailstsichr

       She’s my 80yo Mother’s favorite “young” actress, so I’m pretty sure darling is appropriate. I will swear to everyone that you were just quoting my mother!

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I don’t mind the shoes because they are not pumps and you really don’t look at them much.  They don’t take away from the freshness of the really really cool dress she’s wearing.   Man, does she look amazing.  

  • leftcoastpickle

    I love the shoes! She looks great!

  • Sara LaBatt

    After seeing Lucy’s outfit I was thinking maybe it was an 80’s costume party premiere, but clearly it is not.  Kyra looks lovely though I agree about the shoes, not good and look painful.  Love that cuff though.

  • Larkin21

    Love the hair, make-up, and dress. I do think it’d look better if the hem were a couple inches higher but still looks great. I don’t hate the shoes but she definitely could have done better. Still, she looks amazing. And I love that cuff!

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    I’m not crazy about the sleeves on the dress or the shoes; I also think she needs another bangle on her arm, but all in all she looks wonderful — happy and relaxed — the best look of all.

  • alyce1213

    Love everything about Kyra, especially here.  She looks lovely.  The dress is pretty, the shoes are cool, the haircut’s great — and still very Kyra, stunning cuff.  She’s somebody I’d like to know.

  • How is it that Kyra can look so cute and Lucy can look so appalling at the SAME EVENT? Lucy had better demand that no photographs of the two of them standing next to one another, ever circulate.

  • marilyn

    I hate her hair.  It hangs down in her face.  I realize that as we age, hair covering the face is a trick to look younger.  But, her hair looks messy and this cut does nothing for her.  She looks like her hairstylist did not finish combing out her hair.  Otherwise she looks fine.

    • mhleta

      Disagree. She needs some softness to offset the angles of her face. Something neater would be too severe.

  • Aurumgirl

    I like the shoes!  They’re a nice change from platform plastic beige pumps or those clear plastic faux chanel ankle strapped monstrosities we are seeing on all the cookie cutter starlets, by Louboutin.  And the look good with the new hair and the dress.

    • mhleta

      I agree. They’re really summery and fit the spirit of the dress. Plus she has pretty feet, so why not show them off?

  • another_laura

    I so love how you guys get in the quibbles at the end.  mwah!  I also hate those shoes and wish for a little gold something somewhere, like maybe a little pin up near her left shoulder?  too old-fashioned?

  • More than anything I lurve her face which appears to be normal AND beautiful.

  • Pennymac

    Simple, chic, fresh, and summery. LOVE!!!!!!

  • andreawey

    Perfect! It’s amazing how much overlong hair can bring down a face.

  • n a

    she has such a slammin’ bod. wow- in awe.

  • BrightsideSusan

    I like the shoes. Love the haircut.

  • Super cute, seasonal dress.  

  • Lisa

    This lucky bitch – she looks flawless, the haircut does her wonders, and she gets it from Kevin Bacon every night!  I approve of her life!

    • mhleta

      Everything’s better with Bacon.

      • Lisa

        LOL! There’s a pork joke in there for sure, I’m certain of it! 😉

  • quiltrx

    She looks really pretty and fresh, and I LOVE the new haircut!

    Those shoes though…blech.

  • mhleta

    She looks really really good! I actually love the shoes and God bless her for wearing a piece of interesting jewelry when everyone else has suddenly become allergic to it. My only criticism is that white is really hard to photograph well because it bounces so much damn light. I thought this was a very plain dress, like t-shirt plain, until you gave us some details in the close ups. As it turns out, this is a pretty interesting garment for being in all white.

  • AmeliaEve

    Her feet scare me, all janky and boney and veiny like that. More shoe, please.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    Agreed on the hair! Some women need to realize that as you get older, stubbornly clinging to your long JBF hair sometimes does you no favors. She absolutely took at least 5 years off her face. She looks fantastic!

  • LocMama

    Kyra looks beautiful.  This dress is summery, fresh, and that cuff is indeed kickass.  I’m choosing to ignore the shoes because I’ve got a totally girl hard-on for Kyra.

  • PhillipWilde

    Does anyone else think she looks exactly like Amy Sedaris in these photos?
