Chloë Moretz in Versace and MaxMara

Posted on November 16, 2012

Cute! Almost!

Le sigh. We have problems, which we will now point out to you.

Chloë Moretz shines on her way to the Designer Pudsey Bear Collection 2012 charity auction in London in a Versace dress and MaxMara Sorte Camel Coat.

Versace Fall 2012 Collection/Model: Lena Hardt

She took a very sassy dress and matured it way up past her age, taking a lot of the whimsy away from it. First, she eschewed the belt, and we really think this dress needed one. Second… we can’t even say it, darlings. She added a DICKEY. A DICKEY, kittens! Oh, we can’t with that. If it’s too chilly to wear a certain dress, don’t go dickeying it up; especially if it’s Versace. Versace and dickey are two words that should not be seen anywhere near each other.


We just wanted to say it again. If she’d added a pussy bow, we’d be on our knees right now thanking the blogging gods.

And finally, while we think the coat is gorgeous and the shoes are kinda retro-fun, they really don’t go with the dress at all. Basically, she took a fun dress that should’ve looked great on her, and then added a whole bunch of stuff to make it look bad. We’re a little surprised, since she’s considered something of a baby fashionista. We’ll chalk this up to some sort of teenage hormonal surge.

    What is she doing with her face?

    • dsco3031

      That was my first thought!

    • MilaXX

       that’s one scary looking mug

    • Sucking in her neck.

    • caitlincactus

      the mary kate & ashley smirk

      • ChicaDificil

         She is too young for the duck face

    • Pants_are_a_must

      10 years from now she’s going to cringe SO HARD at all the faces she’s making every time she hits a red carpet.

      That dress has such a great 80s retro feel, and she just took it all the way back to the 50s, because…why? Because stupid, that’s why.

  • Monabel

    Dicking around?

    •  This website is run by two gay guys so yes they are both “dicking around”. lol

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Again, no neck. Is it Homage to Tennessee Williams Week in fashion?

  • PeggyOC

    HATE the dickey, but I like that she seems to have flattened the hip wings.

  • Honestly, I think the dress is as bad as the rest of the outfit. If you’re going to be a label whore, do it with a little more subtlety.

    • MoHub

       Anyone else have a flashback to PR season 7 and Emilio’s ES[heart]SA print? I sure did.

  • crash1212

    Looks like they eliminated the ‘hip wings’ on her version – which is a good thing. Otherwise…what the hell was she thinking? Also, I really hate those shoes.

  • MrsMaxPower

    Not to be dick-y (zing!), but her face and stance is giving a Samantha from Sex and the City vibe that is awkward to see. 

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      She looks like she was making the duck face and it froze that way.

  • almondemy

    This breaks my heart. I adore her and yet she only poses for pictures with a duck-faced smirk.  Chloe, YOU ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THAT!!

  • Tamara Hogan

    Versace + dickey = oh honey NO.

    None of these pieces look like they should be worn together. 

  • I think her mom was the one who made her put the dickey and the coat on! 

    • Well she forgot to tell her to put on some hose to keep her legs from getting chilly.

  • AmeliaEve

    Dickeys are for Leslie Fay working girl wardrobes.

    She seems to be studying at the Olsen Twins School of Geriatric Fashion.

    • Lily-Rygh

       And their religious devotion to the snarky pursed lip pose. 

  • Sara__B

    As my mother used to say, “Wipe that expression off your face!” Chloe’s
    not quite 16 — too young to adopt that pinched-lip prune face most of
    the 20- and 30-something starlets find so fetching.  And ditch that dickie!

  • She looks like she’s choking to death or something. Girl, get out of that noose. — Dickey! Get out of that dickey.

  • MilaXX

    Agree about the addition of the dickey and everything else, but WTF is wrong with her face? I can see the paps catching her in one bad moment, but every picture has the same bad mug. Chloe needs to have a seat.

  • ecallaw1977

    That coat is stunning.  I have no idea why, since I know good and well I can’t afford it, but I would love to know who makes it and how much it costs.

  • tereliz

    Dickey and duckface. In the same look. Girlfriend, please stop doing that with your lips. Also, DICKEY!! WTF??!!

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      LOL, good name for a kid’s book “The Adventures of Dickey & Duckface”.

  • Yeah, I’m pretty much on board with all of these other comments re: duck face, dickey, etc., etc.  However, I must say that this thing where people wear coats without actually putting their arms through, you know, the SLEEVES is incredibly annoying.  You look like an asshat.  Either wear the coat or don’t.  Okay, rant over. 

  • That Dickey doesn’t match! All I can think is maybe it was cold?

    • Tatiana Luján

      then why didn’t she wear stockings?

  • R.A. Dickey won the NL Cy Young!  I know, off topic.

  • Tatiana Luján

    Honey, your neck is non-existent. Please, stop wearing turtlenecks, they do nothing for you.

  • Imasewsure

    Yes why would you make that dress longer? Individual pieces are great… could even have lived with dickey if this was a mini (probably not but maybe)… Hope she gets to keep the coat (and give it to her mom) because it’s gorgeous!!

  • decormaven

    If you’re going to wear a blinged out dress like that, bring it with some shoes with attitude and don’t cover it up with a coat. A dickey? A dickey? Really? 

  • G

    I saw a picture of her without the coat… it’s even worse… it’s a short-sleeved turtleneck… this may be a first.


  • In_Stitches

    Verdict on the shoes?  I mean…they’re hilarious, but kind of awesome?  I’m not sure.  Camo-croc heeled loafers…what do you wear them with? 

    • J. Preposterice

      I WANT THEM.

      I would wear them with brown pinstriped trousers or with jeans or with  my mustard-colored pencil skirt.  ALL KINDS OF USES. 

      Please, won’t some bitter kitten tell me who makes them? 

  • another_laura

    An ugly dress made worse.  How could that happen?

    I really like the coat and the shoes, but yeah, not with that dress.

    dickey dickey dickey, it’s like saying poo-poo.  You can’t help but giggle!

  • TieDye64

    From edgy to nearly frumpy. She’s freaking me out with the guppy lips. Gah!

  • SewingSiren

    She’s cute.

  • Lily-Rygh

    Despite the fact that the dickey (!) makes her look like she has no neck, I DO really like the shoes…

  • StellaZafella

    1) She’s turned a Versace into a legless “Onesie ”
    2) Turtleneck + Duckface = “I just ate a reeeally sour coughdrop!”
    3) And my Grandmother wants her car coat and golf shoes back ASAP.


    • myristica_fragrans

      not a coughdrop, but one of those reneé zellweger brand extra sour lemon candies.

  • Kenisha Hill Phillips

    I actually don’t mind the dickey, but the coat and shoes are hurting my feelings.

  • Ripley4

    Typical silly comments about her following a misdirecting post.  The outfit matches the look of the Pudsey Bear she auctioned off. Second, why rip her over the coat she’s wearing which was only put on when she left the event? Then people whine about an innocuous facial expression that likely lasted a quarter of a second. No photos put up from the actual event where she’s smiling while holding the Bear she got over 6,000 pounds for.

    • Honey, we do red carpet here. We’re not interested in what she looked like inside. We’re interested in what she looked like as she entered. If you don’t like that, there’s the door.

  •  not feeling the moretz love. weird duckface, and announing your brand like this is never not tacky.

  • ellabob

    Just bad – all the way around
    Dickey – really?  
    Those shoes are awful and she is a bit cross eyed -yes?

  • ojosazules

    She’s turned the dress into a yellow alphabet sack. With the belt and waist detail it is pretty sharp. The dress she is wearing is not sharp.
    Interesting shoes.

  • Jepham

    That dress is so tight it looks like it’s gone from being at her knees to above her knees in the last picture. Is she wearing a dickey if it’s really a short sleeved turtleneck? I thought a dickey had to be just the collar. I hate the whole look.

  • marilyn

    The dress also lost the sassy edge by making it too big for her, and going to the knee.  In that situation, it all looks matronly.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Yep, all the individual pieces are cute but they don’t work together. I have hated dickies for as long as I can remember. Yuck.

  • Those are some seriously ugly shoes.

  • siriuslover

    It’s like she’s 35 years old in 1955. All she needs is one of those long-handled cigarettes. Such a cute girl with fun ideas that she takes to an extreme for her age. Very unfortunate.

  • Nothing matches…in a bad way.

  • kimmeister

    Before I even scrolled down to see TLo’s comments, I went “EWWWW Is she wearing a dickey?!!”  If your neck is cold, that’s what cute scarves are for, sheesh!

  • She does that with her face a lot.  Although the coat is gorgeous, it is way too mature for that dress, or for her. I’m on the fence with the shoes, they would probably look great with jeans, but not with this get-up.

  • Louise Bryan

    Since you guys noticed it, I guess that makes it a spotted dickey.

  • Child, if a middle-aged woman wants to steal your coat and shoes you’re doing it wrong.

  • nannypoo

    Well, it finally happened. Her face froze like that. Quack.

  • myristica_fragrans

    shoes- ugly
    dress- hideous as hell and reminiscent of smc’s tacky ass pre-fall whatever the hell that was print.

  • These people running this website know absolutely know nothing about the facts. Chloe Moretz was at a charity auction. She was not advertising her brand. She like every other model was not even paid for being there. They will probably delete this post like they have every other one that has tried to tell the world about their lies.

    • God save us from silly fangurls who have no idea what a red carpet is.

      Now go away.

      • Amy Ennis

        LOL. That is all. 

      • “these people running this site?”  who the fuck is this paranoid maniac?

  • quiltrx

    I can’t believe it took me that long to figure out what was wrong with it.  But her sour almost-crosseyed (?) face was really distracting.

    And it looks like the little peplums are gone, making the grey pieces just odd.

  • DCSheehan

    Why do so many stars eschew a belt? Belt makers must weep when they see pictures like this.

  • While not at all Defending The Dickey (which, by the way, was the never produced sequel to “Romancing The Stone”), I think the knee length bothers me even more than all the other mistakes here.  Why, child?  You’re young & skinny & famous & talented.  Show off those legs while you can!

  • Dickey… *giggle*

  • I’m thinking she’s too young to remember the first round of Dickeys. Dickey.  Agreed on all points, she took a fun little number and turned it into something for a grandma to wear. Those shoes belong in a fire. 

  • MaryAtRealityTea

    T.Lo, you’re to kind to even kind of give this mild, sort of, almost props. Bless. 

    Poor thing – it’s a total mismatched mess. Plus, it’s unflattering and it looks like it’s strangling her.

  • jw_ny

    Chloe always appears to be neck-less to me as it is, and now she goes one step further and covers up what little neck she has…with that…thing.  arggg…

    Cute dress…it should have worked on her.  It really needed the belt, and to pop up the hip wings…as on the model.  

  • Amy Ennis

    I love the shoes. With her head tilted the way it is in the first picture, I didn’t even notice the dickey. But now that I see it, I can’t unsee it. 

  • lesmaha

    I think I last wore a dickey as a pre-teen in a concert band….just saying…

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I didn’t know one could even GET a Dickey anymore… and a bright yellow Dickey at that!

  • formerlyAnon

    I don’t think flattening the “wing hips” in this way was a good thing. They may not have been flattering, but the result is unflattering AND inexplicable. Why HAVE little greyish pointers giving the illusion of a tummy? Why?

    Me, I’m just impressed with how she managed to so closely match the yellow of the dress with her dickey. Did Versace cooperate?

    Overall, it’s a gorgeous coat wasted.

  • bellafigura1

    I pity the coat and shoes — they would be gorgeous, properly deployed!

  • PeaceBang

    Dickey and Ducky. By which I mean her facial expression, which is ridiculous. The middle part, the head tucked down emphasizing the pointed chin, the duck lips… very strange and distracting.

  •  I can’t get past that stupid smirk.

  • Dagney

    The cross-eyed duck face is freaking me out.

  • Dagney

    Frankly, the dress design, or rather LACK thereof, annoys me. The only reason we know the dress is Versace is the QVC shopping channel craft letters all over the bodice. Otherwise it’s just a plain fitted yellow dress with maxi pad wings.

  • The upper part is somewhat bizzare, but J’adore les shoes.

  • Rebecca Jay

    She should have eschewed the whole damn outfit.  Dress, shoes, coat… it all looks like various forms of puke.

  • RzYoung

    I don’t know what a dickey is?! I’m really missing out on life.

  • No mention of the duckface? That’s all I see here.  Duckface.

  • I had to wear a dickey with my junior high band blazer. That alone disqualifies the dickey from any fashionable look.

  • jmorino08

    You can’t not look douchey wearing your coat like that. Even if you are a wee teen fashion princess.

  • guest2visits

    I’m going to disagree; I thought the turtle neck version worked well with the coat, and I loved all of it – especially the way she took
    an unwearable, over the top piece of RW garishness and turned it into something a young girl could rock without looking like an overly
    sexed Versace super herione.  Her interpretation makes the dress better, imo. Like the shoes with it too.
