Amanda Seyfried for InStyle Magazine

Posted on December 18, 2012

Love this look for Miss Amanda:

 

Amanda Seyfried covers the January 2013 issue of InStyle magazine photographed by Dusan Reljin and styled by Samira Nasr in a Chanel Resort 2013 dress paired with Jimmy Choo shoes.

 

 

Chanel Resort 2013 Collection/Model: Bette Franke (VIVA)

Jimmy Choo ‘Maya’ Pump

 

She can work these looks that should come off all twee but instead wind up looking chic and even a little edgy on her. Those silver shoes really make the look; a perfect bit of punctuation for the outfit.

      The shoes are great. The dress, less so.

      I’d argue about the mermaid hair, but I think it’s truly one of her most recognizable features, in a way Amy Adams could never work with hers.

    • Patricia Gillett

      Perfection. The dress looks great and the silver shoes were an inspired choice. 

    • Laurie Bergman

      I’m getting a baby-shower cupcake feel from the dress, but the shoes are fab (and so is her knowing facial expression).

    • neofashionista

      fabulous but why did they have too airbrush her she looks perfect lovely in real life without the computer modulating her into something fake and plastic :(

      • raininmai

         I agree about the airbrushing in magazines. I think that’s why I enjoy the red carpet photos so much more. At least we know we’re looking at something real.

      I want to say a huge thank you for no platform pumps!!!

    • donnaINseattle

      Agreed. The dress color, the cut of the dress, her hair, the makeup, the expression, and those FABulous shoes. Wish her legs looked more able to carry her body though.

      • meowing

        Maybe the ever-present Photoshop, but doesn’t the crossed leg look a lot smaller than the grounded leg??

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

          YES. That is almost an entry for Photoshop Disasters. Her right (top) leg looks like it belongs on a different body, but the attached foot is twice the size of the other one.

      I am just deeply grateful that they did not show the original sheer over grannies version the model has on.

      • kimmeister

        Oh barf, I hadn’t even noticed until you pointed that out.

        • http://twitter.com/kerryev kerryev

          I am jealous of your vision. If you have any tips on how not to notice that particular kind of barf, please share.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          We need a petition to ban granny panties and sheer skirts from all runways STAT.

      • ampg

        I think that may have been at least partly due to the lighting.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3JSTXMWWVZN2QNP2UEKJMTWD7U Isabel

          Or, maybe it has a lining. Or maybe, they Photoshopped the grannies away.

    • mmc2315

      I would’ve guessed that the color of the dress would wash her out, but it looks great on her!

    • SewingSiren

      She looks very pleased with herself. Maybe she’ll edge out Anne.

    • MilaXX

      glad they lined it for the cover

    • Kathy_Marlow

      I saw this at the grocery store earlier today and thought “Wow, she looks amazing, I hope TLo does a post on this!” 

      • ampg

        Heh – me too.

    • kimmeister

      They handled her eye makeup nicely.  When it’s not done right, she can sometimes look bug-eyed, but no such look here.

      I just bought shoes in the exact same shape, but houndstooth (and for like a millionth of the price, I’m sure) so I’m feeling even better about them now.

    • http://twitter.com/Nancer Nancer

      I think she looks great here! Too often the dresses overwhelm her, but this fits her perfectly. Love it.

    • Introspective

      she looks fab here- great color and fit in the dress, and fierce shoe. whoever styled her for this needs to be helping her out on the RC. 

      Les Mis is this girl’s breakout role and she keeps showing up in less than noteworthy garments and wasting the moment to make herself shine. but here she’s shining indeed.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      The silver shoes MAKE the look. The dress looks kinda crappy on the model, but outstanding on her.

    • rmlamb

      I think she looks like an Easter egg.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1074301175 Beverly Hensley Kozma

      See, that picture with the model – that’s the stuff that makes me think fashion is nothing but one big joke.

    • twocee

      Heels that aren’t platforms!  It’s a Christmas miracle!

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

        No kidding!! Am trying to find some shoes for New Years that don’t make me tower over my date (my own issue, not his), yet don’t look like something my grandmother would have worn, and so far no luck.

    • http://twitter.com/lenabena_ Elena

      Jealous of her hair cape.

    • decormaven

      Way to sell those pumps! Those shoes take that garment to the next level. 

    • mom2ajs5

      Those shoes really need to find a way into my closet!

    • Imasewsure

      Love it from head to toe on her

    • E. D.

      Love it!

    • LLuL

      Too Taylor Swift for me, I think. 

    • http://twitter.com/Julia_JJ Julie Johnston

      Her face is giving me a Winslet vibe. Anyone else see it?

    • ThaliaMenninger

      She looks great here. I saw her on Conan last night, and girl is W-E-I-R-D. She likes taxidermy and keeps all sorts of stuffed animals (like, dead and then stuffed) in her home. She enjoys lots of beady little dead eyes staring at her. W-E-I-R-D.

    • berkeleygirl

      She rocks that dress better than the model, partly because she has a better body.  The fit is amazing.

    • ankali

      She looks better in that dress than the model does. Well played, Amanda and stylists!

    • Judih1

      I find her hair bit too much, a slightly shorter length would be more becoming on her

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      That is a fabulous look. I was getting very tired of some of the Chanel but this look is perfect and the pumps are great too. Going with one of my favorite trends right now: non-platform shoes. Unfortunately InStyle once again made ass of what was probably a lovely photo. What is it with them and the photoshop and their desire to make everything look ‘fake?’

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFW22QV426LUOEPGASPZJWJMDE MishaFoomin

      Looks like a Tiffany’s gift box. Still pretty.

    • jmorino08

      I saw this magazine at the grocery store yesterday and she stood out even among all the Christmas recipe books surrounding her! Work that proper shit, girl!! 

    • Pennymac

      I need those shoes to make my life complete.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=535548244 Kim Baker Vidas Davey-Irvin

      love.  fullstop.

    • http://twitter.com/Eovaai Eovaai

      OMG I LOVE THOSE SHOES.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      she kind of looks a little psychotic and dangerous in this, which is awesome.

    • quiltrx

      The dress has some interest, but it’s the shoes that really stand out.  Not sure that’s what you want for a magazine cover, though?

    • kikisayshi

      Wouldn’t have recognized her. Love the shoes! WANT the shoes!

    • AnneElliot

      Wow.  I love this, even with the odd little dangly bits on the bodice, which I find distracting.  And god bless someone for those amazing shoes — I’m praying that the horrible platform trend is on its way OUT.

    • guest2visits

      The dress is beautiful; she looks great in this blue also.  I continue to be disappointed by the quality of the photography
      for American InStyle, however; I think they do a poor job for their cover-subjects both inside and out.

    • http://twitter.com/peacebang Victoria Weinstein

      She and Emma Stone are the most adorable kids. This is beautiful. They do Pretty White Girl better than anyone.

    • Dhammadina

      The silver shoes are fierce. Apply as antidote to the nude colored ones. 

    • ccm800

      She looks dead tacky to me.
