Marisa Tomei in Marios Schwab

Posted on October 29, 2012

If you scroll down slowly, Marisa appears to be performing some sort of interpretive modern dance.

And if we were to venture a guess, we think what she’s trying to say is, “I don’t know what happened, but I fell off the style horse, guys. I’m too embarrassed to speak right now.”

As well you should be, Marisa. As well you should be.

  • Ohh. That’s too bad. The pants on the model look so much better. And those shoes….

    • Lizzyisi

       If she were wearing normal wide-legged pants like the model, I’d’ve loved this. Even with the half-assed hair and ugly shoes. As it is, she looks a little silly, but I still want to sit at her table.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    FuN with scrolling!  At least there’s that because wow – just wow!  That is one ugly get up. 

  • teensmom99

    In the 2nd picture, it almost works–at least I could see how the shapes might work.  This weekend I was at an event with someone wearing black lace with nude panel underneath and it was just yucky.  I thought that she must have no idea what that looks like–same here.

  • MilaXX

    I understand yellow is the pop of color du jour, but red or royal blue would have been a better choice. She also needs to comb her hair.

  • Monabel

    Look! Shoulderpads!

    • I’m mystified by why we can see the shoulder pads when Marisa’s top is lined.  Why on earth would you do that?

      • kimmeister

        It’s not lined. She’s wearing a yellow or beige bandeau/bra.

        • On second look, you’re right.  Dare I suggest lining would have been a better idea?

        • Fordzo

          She is The Human Barbie, and has no nipples.

          • curiouserandcuriousest

             Oh, great minds etc …

    • decormaven

      The horror! Why in the world would something be designed with visible shoulderpads? I’m completely baffled.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Actually it kinda looks like she’s been crying.  I don’t blame her.  Come on home sweetie, let’s get you out of this thing….

  • What? I just can’ that bra yellow?  or a weird shade of nude? MC Hammer pants should not make a come back…please!

    •  I think she matched her bra to her shoes. Odd decision.

  • kittenwithaquip

    I just want to throw out a random “bless her heart” and leave it at that.

    • kschwarting

      I hear you.  She looks awful, but I kind of love her anyway.

      • Magatha

        Same here. The clothes? She can go home and change. The face? She is beautiful. I love the way she is aging. I love how she’s kind of letting us see how you do it well.

  • Clueless_Jock

    She has no nipples!

    •  I think she’s wearing one of those “nude” stick-on bra things.

  • I can’t decide which is worse, the top or the shoes. 

  • Judy_J

    This is just bizarre.

  • decormaven

    The shoes look like some Daniel Green slippers from the 1970s. Hon, schlep on over to the avocado Fridgedaire and get yourself a Mickey’s Big Mouth. 

    • mountainFashionista

      [Can’t stop laughing at this…]

    • Snailstsichr

       I knew they looked familiar – my Mother and Grandmother had those slippers!

    • formerlyAnon

       Damn, the words “Mickey’s Big Mouth” hadn’t crossed my mind in 30? 35? years. The beer wasn’t anything special but there was something very pleasing about the pop top, the extra wide mouth and the shape of the bottle. I’m sure all of those things are slightly different by now.

      Double damn, I’m getting old.

  • Mike Owens

    The worst. Period. 

  • Trisha26

    Unlike the model at least she’s wearing a bra. But I can see it. And what’s with “seeing” the shoulder pads? If they were black they’d look like a construction/design detail instead of SHOUDLER PADS! The pants are either too short or the yellow orthopedic wraps on her feet are too tall.

  • another_laura

    Oh dear.  Come on, honey bear, you can go back out trick-or-treating after we get you into a real costume.

  • Introspective

    Stylists are shut in cause of Sandy. That must be the only explanation for the head to toe fug at work here…

  • alyce1213

    What’s with those pants?  I don’t understand.
    I won’t even start on the top.

  • Rand Ortega

    It’s just all kind of schlumpy. The outfit. The hair & makeup. The shoes try to lift it up, but…no.

  • Miss_Led


  • stubbornthoughts

    WTF = What The Fug?

  • librarygrrl64

    Wow, that is one head-to-toe hot mess. Poor Marissa.

  • 3boysful

    Pssst, Marisa!  Your stylist hates your guts.

  • Imasewsure

    I think she lost a bet (a drinking game, perhaps). The dance is endearing though. Poor dear thing….

  • Contralto

    You know, when the interpretive dance muse hits you, you really just need to go with it.  I don’t understand the outfit, though.

  • Ohhhh, Marisa. NO. HONEY, NO. You are so cool and lovely and fabulous and earthy and WHY ARE YOU WEARING HAMMER PANTS?

    The interpretive dance thing was hilarious, though.

  • guest2visits

    O Marisa – what.. is.. this… 
    This is truly one of those outfits trying to achieve some sort of ugly pinnacle on the fashion scale.
    Can it be that we were meant to see not only the white shoulder pads but the ‘flesh’ colored booby-holders too ?
     Have the pants been specifically altered into genie style harem pants so that we can be sure not to miss the hideous yellow
     bingo night slippers ?  Not only does this make her appear short and wide, it also looks like she just woke up. Minus 50 points.

    • l_c_ann

      Or she got totally worn out trying to make the pants work and just gave up.

  • quiltrx

    I’m thinking ‘one or the other not both’ on this one.  The errand-running hair and makeup aren’t doing her any favors…she’s prettier than she’s coming off here.

    And I can’t with those shoes.

  • PastryGoddess

    She fell HARD! 

  • l_c_ann

    She bought the shoes and has been trying to find something to wear them with.  Now that winter is coming, this is/was the shoes’ last chance.  (Now she can write them off as a professional expense.)

    Well, can you think of another even vaguely possible explanation?

  • oh honey

  • Judih1

    FUGLY from head to toe. Did she get dressed with her eyes closed?

  • kikisayshi

    She looks like she just rolled out of bed. You’re at a FASHION COUNCIL event. Put some effort in, for crying out loud!

  • lamamu

    I may be in the minority here, but I don’t think Marisa ever really looks bad. She has a way of carrying things off. And I love the fact that her face still looks like her face, just a bit older.

  • In_Stitches

    Those pants….THOSE PANTS.  They’re quite possibly the single most unflattering item I’ve seen featured here this year. 

    There’s something potentially chic to the jacket that resonates with me.  Granted, it would have to be worn like a jacket with, you know, maybe a shirt underneath, but I think that something interesting could result from maybe a burgundy draped-neck tank underneath it. 

  • Scarlet39

    Those aren’t the same pants as on the runway, are they? 

  • jw_ny

    I’m generally on board with her quirky style…not this time.

  • NCDFan

    Eww. The way she’s standing makes the pants look like they are gathered at the ankle ruining one of the admittedly few good features of the design. This is not anyone’s outfit.

  • rmp6y5

    Okay, that top could… on some level… kind of… be rock star?  Right?  If done properly?  But those PANTS!  They make her look like a genie wearing a diaper.  And those shoes are all kinds of hideous.  

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    She looks horrible.  Just horrible.  Like she got off a three day bender.  Those white shoulder pad things?  Faded pink lipstick?  What?

  • Why on earth would anyone want a thin line *above* her boobs? Looks like it’s mushing the girls southward, both on the model and on her. And the fabric of the top looks like insulation or packing material. So not pretty. Sigh. I do think her face is lovely here.

  • that black clutch totally disappears, so it looks like she’s grabbing her crotch.  something wrong down there, dear?
