Elisabeth Moss in Moschino

Posted on January 18, 2013

Oh, Lizzie. Honey. We want to like this, really we do. We’re always happy to see you step out of the Peggy Olson frumpiness somewhat forced on you and even better, we love it when you get away from the skin-tight bandage dresses you tend to default to when you want to get your sexy on.

But as much as we applaud the animal-print shoes and dominatrix dress, we just have to point out one little thing to you.

Elisabeth Moss attends the Sundance Channel Original Programming Luncheon in Beverly Hills, California in a Moschino dress paired with Christian Louboutin shoes.

Moschino Fall 2012 Collection/Model: Kendra Spears

Sweetie, you can’t wear a leather dress the way you’d wear one of those stretchy-tight bandage dresses. Otherwise your boobs turn into platters. Those girls needs some space and some air right now.

  • She looks like she hasn’t taken a full breath since donning this.

    • Scarlet39

      I’m hoping she made it through the evening without passing out!

    • I had the same exact thought- she looks like she is just holding her breath and trying not to exhale.

      •  She always looks a bit like that. It’s her posture. I think she looks awesome, but I’m a sucker for fitted leather.

  • Pillow boob! Ouch.

  • Vera L-

    her hair, makeup and skin look UH-mazing. Yes, total plate boob. 

  • Uni-boob aside, I kind of like this. 

    •  I kinda do too. It’s great from the waist down but makes her look a little on the wide side in the shoulder area.

      The uniboob is self explanatory.

    • Hell Yes, I Would!

      Me too. Love that dress.

  • FrayedMachine

    What is with the weird leather outfits lately? Is it suddenly cool in holiday to don pseudo-dominatrix gear? Please, someone just do away with these, please. PLEASE.

  • MilaXX

    It’s not bad. I think I’d like it better with black hose or tights

    • Yeah, I’m kinda loving this on her, though I do wish she went up a size to unsquish her boobage.  Either that or if she had gone with something cleavage-baring.  And it would have been MUCH more interesting with some legwear and sassier hair.

  •  Plus, it’s kind of unstyled. Runway look is fierce largely due to accessories such as the belted jacket and the bizarre indigenous-people hat.

  • her neck is too short for this type of dress. she needs to show some cleavage.

    • kimmeister

      You’ve nit the nail on the head (about her neck length)!

  • CheriCPat

    Hair and makeup, while better than she usually sports, are ALL WRONG for this dress and shoes!  From the neck up, she looks ready for the office.  

  • teensmom99

    Leather just never flatters the girls, any one’s girls.  I know it’s fun to want to try and kudos for trying new things, but it just doesn’t work. On the other hand, best hair she’s ever had.

  • Introspective

    Between the uniboob and the neckless head that this dress creates this outfit’s good ideas were damned to hell in the execution.

  • Alyssa Stanfield

    That looks very uncomfortable! It would be a good look for her if it fit properly! Although I think stronger eye makeup would have been good for this look.

  • Andrew Schroeder

    Seriously, she looks like she’s wearing a breast plate.

  • What’s with all the starlets busting out the bondage wear this week?

  • Imasewsure

    Hate the shoulders on this dress for her and the whole look is tight and too uniformly dark (with the matchy matchy hair as well).

  • afabulous50

    She always has that stupid smirk on her face….oh if only I could just whack it off her…aaahh  that felt good.

  • Zippypie

    The shoes are awesome. That is all.


  • margaret meyers

    At least she didn’t wear the Big Hat.  I hear you have to stuff it with newspaper.

  • Snailstsichr

    I like her hair and her makeup is pretty.

  • LLuL

    Another material and she would be smoking hot in this shape and color. As is she looks like a beetle. 

  • Hem needs to be longer, too.  Otherwise it’s a nice half and half dress…half worker bee/half hooker.

  • marilyn

    So black leather clothing is what’s next.  I hate it already.

    • BrooklynBomber

      I know. We’ve been seeing it quite a bit, right? And fitting like a sausage casing. That and the mid-calf hem trend need to die out fast.

  • SorayaS

    Where are the accessories?? There is potential in that dress but it looks terrible here. Can someone tell me how those shoes could ever be styled without looking tacky (considering they look so tacky even with a plain black outfit!)?

  • Girl, I love you in the black leather, just not this dress! So close, try again.

  • Karen Maslowski

    Total uniboob. 

  • alyce1213

    Not only doesn’t it fit, it’s ugly.  I hate the shoulders, the pleats, the thickness of the leather.
    Just terrible.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Oh, and good God, those shoes!

  • Annabelle Archer

    You also shouldn’t sport Midwestern soccer mom hair either.

  • nannypoo

    How does she do the exact same face every time? She must practice in the mirror before she goes out. And those boobs! That hair!

  • E. D.

    Not her dress.

  • Melissa Brogan

    Leather skirt and something else for a top would have looked much better.

  • Anathema_Device

    I kind of like the dress, but it is too small on her. And I don’t really care for the high neckline.

    She looks like she can’t move. Did they use a hand truck to move her around all night a la Hannibal Lechter?

  • Make the (ill)fitted leather trend stop!

  • Girl_With_a_Pearl

    I think she looks great.  I’m also a Peggy Olsen fan, so I may be biased.

  • formerlyAnon

    Good waist down. Waist up it looks like it’s wearing her, not she wearing it.

  • Her chest looks like the breastplate of a gladiator.  Too.  Tight. To. Breathe.

  • Trisha26

    Shrink-wrapped. Love her, but no.

  • luciaphile

    Maybe this has a daring back or something, but I can’t get past the fact that if it were not leather, it kind of looks like office wear to me. 

  • VicksieDo

    Also, she needs to give a fierce face to go with, and that’s a sappy expression. Nope!

  • Call me Bee

    A full leather dress is never good idea, due to the boob smooshing, and this particular dress could be so much better if it had a seam running down between them. 

  • kathrineb

    Aside from problems with the fit, I REALLY want to tear those shoulder things off her and lower the neckline a little!

  • Anniebet

    No. Neck. 

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I’ve worn dresses like that for roles and it SUCKS! Give the girls their due, dammit!

  • TieDye64

    Yeah, the uniboob looks a might uncomfortable. All I can think of is talcum powder.

  • quiltrx

    Cute idea, but horrible uni-boob.

  • crash1212

    So amazingly unflattering. Uni-boob is not a good thing. Don’t these people have mirrors?

  • She looks like she can hardly breathe in that thing. 


    God love her for trying but… OUCH!  And for fucks sake, stand up straight and confident when wearing a leather dress.  The shy liitle schoolgirl pose is just not doing this any favors.

  • Ozski

    I’m just glad you posted a request! Although I’m sure you were going to post it anyways. Yeah, she has a uni-boob going on that I initially didn’t notice. I’m glad she’s back to being brunette though and can’t wait for “Top of the Lake”.

  • butterflysunita

    I think she could rock a leather dress, but not this one.  Isn’t working at all.  

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Ugly dress.  Poorly fit.  Horrid hair.  Atrocious makeup.  Who let her out of the house?

  • StillGary

    It does look a little uncomfortable in places but she’s working it. Props!

  • It could have worked a little more fitted in the skirt and just under the knee. And only if she dispensed with the public representative ‘do.

  • wawawah

    NASTY! Looks like a Roland Mouret trash bag!

  • Elizabetta1022

    Dominatrix Betty Rubble.

  • I have to admit, she’s kind of selling this! 

  • Girl, go up a size.  Leather’s supposed to breathe, and you are too!

  • Cheryl Kohs


  • lalahartma

    Yes, the girls look terrible. Love the dress with the jacket on the runway.

  • mhleta

    Boobular Bummer. This could have been a Moment. The hair ain’t happening, either; it needs more Nasty and less Nice. 

  • She’s cute at best. Her head is bigger than Jon Hamms. That’s not good.
