Ginnifer Goodwin in Misha Noono

Posted on February 06, 2013

It’s a strange life, that of the celebrity. You never know when you’re going to be asked to dress like a Disney Cruise staffer and stand in front of a mouthwash logo for the sake of your career, but you do it when you’re asked, dammit. You do it when you’re asked.

Ginnifer Goodwin attends the Listerine 21 Day Challenge Kick-off in New York City in Misha Nonoo.

Misha Nonoo Spring 2013 Collection

We’re embarrassed to admit this (although all notions of embarrassment should be rendered null and void in the presence of the above pictures) but we almost gave this one a thumbs up. What can we say? It looked good in thumbnails at 7 in the morning, on a mere sip of coffee.

And what’s going on with her makeup? Did she just perform a play?

      I think you need more coffee, gents.  And at the very least, Miss G needs to have those shorts morph into trousers.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000905542323 Rhonda Shore

        Or at least Bermuda shorts!  She looks ridiculous!

        • judybrowni

          It’s a spring/summer outfit — admittedly, a ridiculous spring/summer outfit — and it’s fucking FEBRUARY in New York.

          Okay, okay, the designer is giving away his ridiculous spring/summer outfit to a celebrity as a form of advertisement to those who would buy it for spring/summer wear.

          But that doesn’t mean a celebrity has to wear the fucking thing — in FEBRUARY in New York!

          Even stepping out of the limo to the doorway of event could court frostbite. (And no, it doesn’t count if this particular February day was uncharacteristically spring-like — who could know that freak weather would occur when deciding on this freak show outfit?)

          Lord love a duck, that ’70s curse of “hot pants” are back! Which when I worked for a fashion magazine in the ’70s meant the fashion editors were mistaken for hookers on their way to work.

          Although it’s doubtful that anyone desires cruise ship director hookers… 

          • Cloveradams

            Not just hot pants, but hot pants with white piping at the bottom, which instantly transforms them into gym shorts.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      I’m with you – only she could make it work.  She’s such a little sprite.  I like her take much better than the model’s.

      • MaryMitch

        It looks awful on the model, doesn’t it? At least she looks like a real person.

        • joything

          Exactly my reaction, once I saw it on the model.  Ginnifer’s thighs fill out the shorts and have muscle tone and definition – she is healthy.

          • http://twitter.com/TMamBo Therese Bohn

             Yes, she does have lovely, shapely legs, I’ll give her that. But I’m sure there’s better ways to showcase them.  Blazers never go with short-shorts, ever.

    • Sobaika

      She’s convinced she’s some high fashion pixie icon, and unfortunately that’s never going to sit with her.

      • mshesterp

        If she thinks she’s a fashion icon, she should know she needs to switch it up.  And she’s had that hair, which I really hate on her, for TOO. LONG.  It does nothing for her.  The whole outfit is ridiculous, but the head suit has GOT to go.

    • gabbilevy

      The jacket might have worked with 100% different styling, but as is… yikes.

    • eclare

      I dunno…there’s something oddly charming about it.  And its flattering, at least.

      • TRSTL

        Flattering?  Really? I’m not seeing that at all…… to me, the bulky midsection of the jacket makes her look so wide and large through her stomach and small in her shoulders.  And all that puckering and bunching going on….. What is it that is flatering, I am curious.  Maybe I’m not seeing something….

        • captrenault

          Even just unbuttoning the jacket is going to help with that a lot. 

        • eclare

          Maybe flattering isn’t quite the right word, but I just don’t think it makes her look bad, if that makes any sense.  I mean, its a silly outfit, but she looks pretty in it.  Maybe that’s my point. 

          • In_Stitches

             I think it’s flattering.  It nips in at her waist and the shorts hit her at the perfect point, showcasing her fantastic legs. 

            The only thing that doesn’t work for me is the children’s pajamas henley she’s wearing underneath the jacket. 

          • formerlyAnon

             Yes. It’s a bad out fit, analyzed piece by piece. But some how her Ginnifer Cuteness (registered TM) keeps *her* from looking bad.

            ‘Tis a puzzlement.

      • lovelyivy

         There is something very cute about it- I could see some of the more advanced fashion folks being able to rock it (styled differently than here). Unfortunately IMO the cut  doesn’t flatter her, and her makeup is almost bizarre to boot.

        Poor Ginnifer- she tries very hard to be ‘edgy’ but I just don’t think she ever pulls it off.

        • Airkisses

          She’s got a perfect face for Girl-Next-Door, American Sweetheart-ness. She should stop fighting it, and rather embrace it!

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

         I think most of the charm is that she’s smiling, which is pretty rare from the pictures I have seen of her. And the colour is good. I could even embrace the shorts but the jacket just isn’t the right cut or fit for her.

        • eclare

          I think you’ve hit the nail on the head.  Its a great color and she looks happy.   

    • Tatiana Luján

      Is there any pale person that looks good with a nude lipstick?
      The only thing I liked in this pictures is that Ginnifer is smiling instead of putting those ridiculous faces she usually puts.

      • Sobaika

        Sure, it just needs the right undertone (can’t be too frosty, for example) and needs something to counter it, like a smoky eye and/or bronzer.

        • Tatiana Luján

          Thanks.

        • MilaXX

           exactly! otherwise you look like a corpse or worse your lips look ashy. Here her eyes look fine, but there no contouring on her cheeks at all & her lips look dead.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      No no no.  Her makeup has removed every contour of her face, and the cut of that jacket makes her waist look like it starts right under her boobs.  NOT good.

    • EveEve

      Label should be Misha No! No!

      • Introspective

        posted my comment then scrolled up to see yours. jinx.

        (for some reason i thought i replied to you with this then saw that disqus just placed it at the bottom… so reposting and hopefully it comes out correctly now.)

      • MikeW_Vegas

        That was my first thought when I saw the information under the pictures.. after “My god, what fresh hell is this?”  

    • AnaRoW

      I’m just amazed that she’s smiling. I was beginning to think she was incapable of doing so unless a director yelled “action”.

      I don’t hate the outfit but shorts in February in NY seems a bit much.

    • muelonil

      Japanese air hostess.
      (but somehow I still want to like it)

    • Introspective

      its ironic that from a quick glance I thought this outfit was by Misha Nono. cause this outfit sure is a huge one.

    • http://14shadesofgrey.wordpress.com/ Salazar

      I’m still marveling at the fact that there’s an event called the Listerine 21 Day Challenge Kick-off.

      • Anathema_Device

        I know. The number of events designed to get celebrities to whore themselves out is staggering.

    • TRSTL

      Drink more coffee, swplash some cold water on your face, maybe slap each other HARD because this is awful!  Besides being a total cruise ship uniform, it is ill fitted to her, is she even wearing shoes?  And was there a ban on jewelry or bags at this event?

    • Introspective

      posted my comment then scrolled up to see yours. jinx.

    • gsk241

      I’m sorry, but I think she looks ridiculous.  I laughed when I saw these pictures, and not in a good way.

    • captrenault

      Whatever happened to Vicki from The Love Boat, anyway?

    • http://twitter.com/kathyvr Kathy Van Ryzin

      She can actually smile! It’s refreshing to see that she doesn’t always have to put on the primo bitchface.

      • CakesOnAPlane

        right? whatever showboat costume can get her out of Pout Face Central is all right in my book.

    • SugarSnap108

      Was she trying to emulate the color of cool fresh breath?  (What the hell is the Listerine 21-Day Challenge?)  I get the direction she was going, and maybe it would have worked better if, for instance, the jacket actually fit well.  I also think the shorts are a tad too short.  But maybe my main confusion is that she’s wearing this in freezing-cold NYC.

    • http://profiles.google.com/dorothymichael Dorothy & Michael n/a

      Shorts in January? Just…no.

    • decormaven

      This outfit was chosen solely on the color tying in with the promo’d event, and that is an abomination unto Fashion. She’s a person, dammit, not an object.

    • http://www.what-the-frock.com Dana WhatTheFrock

      At least she’s smiling. That rarely happens.

    • http://twitter.com/1tsplove sara

      I actually like the suit jacket.  I don’t really care for the whole suit top/shorts business.  What is WEIRD is her long johns undershirt under that suit jacket…

    • http://twitter.com/NJedwina Edwina

      I can never get passed her hair, it’s so unflattering in its severity.

      • Spicytomato1

        Thank you. I love a good pixie cut but hers is way too severe for her. I get the feeling she thinks it’s edgy. I beg to differ.

    • Jecca2244

      Shorts are just so hard to pull off.

    • http://twitter.com/MarfMom Maya

      i think it’s kind of cute, but wrong season.

    • BrooklynBomber

      That’s just bad. On her, on the model.

    • Cloveradams

      All I see here is a kindergartner (boy) at a progressive school all dressed up for Class Photo Day.

    • Anathema_Device

      Well, it looks better on her than the model, but that’ s damning with faint praise. This is just a No. Also, she needs lipstick that isn’t flesh colored and some earrings.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I want to like this. I don’t like it. The jacket isn’t flattering whatsoever, but I think that her makeup is the worst offender here. Also, I wish that she would let her hair grow out a little bit. It’s fine short – this is just a bit too, in my opinion.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_U5LTVYHX32MGMMXR33G7TOXVR4 Magdalena Monzerrat Ontiveros

      At least her legs look normal and healthy! not like the model’s… 

    • formerlyAnon

       She’s one pussy bow away from Julie, on The Love Boat.  Well, and a whole lotta hair as well.

      It’s hard to imagine disliking those shorts on someone with legs as good as hers. But I do. And the shoes.

      I mean, it’s a tribute to her Industrial Strength Cute that I don’t think she looks awful, though I dislike just about everything she’s wearing.

    • 4JJ

      Awful. Hair, makeup, outfit. Lovely legs, though.

    • poggi

      I think I understand where TLo are coming from.  I almost thought it was working too, but I think it’s because she is smiling, which is a 100% better than her serious fashion look. If I imagine her with her typical fashion-face and this outfit, it fails completely. 

      Keep smiling Ginnifer.  It suits you way more than this does.

      • Anathema_Device

        The color is really amazing. That’s what lured me in at first glance.

        • poggi

          Yes. You are right, the color is very pretty on her and just pretty in general. And I am sick of winter and grey and oatmeal, and I want COLOR (imagine the word ‘color’ sung Ethel Merman style, because that’s how it is in my head).

          • Anathema_Device

            Many years ago, a friend of a friend entertained us at a party by doing a spot-on impression of Ethel Merman singing Guns & Roses’ “Welcome to the Jungle.” Hilarious. As is you at your computer singing COLOR in that way. :-)

            • poggi

              That is hysterical. I am laughing now thinking about Ethel belting out Welcome to the Jungle. And she would have really made you feel welcome!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      I had the same reaction. First glance registered as, “cute, why the hell are they complaining?” But Disney Cruise staffer can’t be unseen. The piping takes it from sharp to uniform.

    • Lilak

      She has a perfectly fine shape, which she doesn’t often seem to know how to flatter.
      But this is almost aggressively unflattering . . . I mean, why CHOOSE to look like a Nautical Sausage ?!?  

    • KGW

      Tennis official. 

    • Lilak

      Must at least give the girl some applause for smiling.  Keep it up, GG!

    • bhl_1123

      Even if this was a cute ensemble (which it is not), I cannot get behind shorts in NYC in February!

    • FrayedMachine

      You know what – I like it. I think she could use a bit of color in her lips but I like the somewhat androgynous look on her. It’s quite cute in a very playful way -shrug-

    • MilaXX

      Hating the dead lips. This might have worked if she had left the jacket off.

    • Judy_J

      Shades of Julie on The Love Boat.  And I’m sorry, but when I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a cute little boy.

    • Allison Harris

      I like the shorts, the blazer and the blouse – but not all together. Disney Cruise staffer is spot on. However I think the pumps are a HUGE improvement over the sneakers the model is wearing. Holy keds, Batman! But, overall, I think it’s more IN than OUT.

    • Airkisses

      I’m reminded of TLo’s menswear comments that only very thin, beanstalk men can rock the doublebreasted suit. I would assume the same goes for women (esp. considering boobs).

    • ellabob

      She looks like an idiot – good grief!

    • crash1212

      Eh. I don’t hate this…it would’ve been 100% better if she’d unbuttoned the jacket and had a bit of color on her lips. Is the aggressively nude lip the “thing” now? First nude hooves, now nude lips. I’m tired of the nude thing.

    • Ruth Preston

    • BuffaloBarbara

      I think I know the play.  It’s the musical where she plays a successful businesswoman in a full suit (the blue has to be bright enough to be seen from the back row), and at the big, climactic number, her fantasy chorus girls come out, and she whips off the skirt to do a Rockettes style dance routine, singing about how she never wanted life in the business world at all, when she was clearly cut out for life on the Catskills circuit.

      Right?

      She’s smiling! Hooray! 

    • B_C_J

      Oh no, no, no, no, no.  This is not fashion. It’s a utilitarian uniform and a very unflattering one. 

      • http://twitter.com/DuBey2 Marie Fessler

    • NotBeehive

      Why does she pencil in her eyebrows?  Her natural ones look so much better.  Between the Sharpie brows and the nude lips she looks awful.  

    • Cathy S

      The jacket looks better open. It’s cute, but it’s a bit . . . stiff when the jacket is buttoned.

    • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

      For some reason, I feel like I now have to report to the Lido Deck.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      I like it, but it does scream cruise ship employee, even on the model (with those hideous shoes). I wish that Ginny would have worn more interesting shoes, and a slightly bolder lip.

      Oh yeah – and worn this outfit during a month where there’s no snow on the ground and below-freezing temperatures.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/37TPKASIMXVUPYK5BNQFOL43KU Carina

      Everything about this says ‘Orbitz’ commercial. Probably not what she was going for. Looks cute on the model though. This is the kind of outfit that needs to be worn ironically, which no one told her, obviously.

      Someone please address those black pumps she is wearing with that sailor suit.

    • Janet B

      I’m pretty sure this is the wrong venue for that outfit. This outfit needs a more casual shoe, unless she switched to pants or a skirt the pumps don’t work.

      Oh, and she looks all sorts of silly.

    • DinahR

      Should some sort of credit be given for the fact it looks WAY better on Gin than it does on the model?   It wouldn’t say it looks great on her, but still…    

    • littlemac8

      At least she’s smiling – I think that’s what gave you a moment of graciousness before caffeine!!

    • MsBusy

    • snarkykitten

      It’s cute…but I think it should be deployed in a “totally casual run to the store, not posing at all here!” venue, not in a photo call or whatever this is

    • Le_Sigh

      She tries so goddamn hard doesn’t she?  Bless her the little sprite.

      It’s almost-cute though.  I wonder if I’m being niggly because of the wall of blue coming at my corneas.  Perhaps if she had worn it with a black legging and some simple kickass booties it could have nailed the whole thing?

    • RocknRollmom

      This is all kinds of awful.  Wow.  It looks horrible on everyone and it looks cheap.  If it were with trousers I would say it is a bad polyester Sun City type of old lady suit.  Even the awful blouse.  And her shoes are wrong, model’s are at least appropriate.  Wow, I could go on and on.  I really hate this.  

    • http://twitter.com/amndad amanda lynn

    • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

      The outfit is ridiculous and made even more so by the fact that the temps haven’t been above freezing this week in NY with intermittent snow flurries. Like the teens and 20somethings that insist on wearing shorts and t-shirts year round. I. Just. Can’t.

    • samo_samo

      I think she looks kinda cute. The outfit looks better on Ginnifer than it does on the model. 

    • Anz

      I think the color is a big part of why it almost works. Not to mention she’s been freakin’ adorable ever since she got that pixie cut.

    • Imasewsure

      Make up is weird; outfit is pure Julie Your Cruise Director – or worse, Vicky Your Assistant Cruise Director, but she is so happy and cute, I’d give it a secret thumbs up (I have my reputation to uphold after all).

    • watchmeboogie

      Head-to-toe fuckery.

    • kschwarting

      It would look much better somehow if she hadn’t buttoned the jacket and had a stronger lip.  And I say this as someone who likes a to wear a nude lip on occasion.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      She’s a disgrace to her livery.

      It’d look better unbuttoned and with different shoes a la the model. It’s a cute look. She just looks terrible wearing it.

    • notterriblybitter

      Did she use her foundation as lipstick?

    • MarissaLG

      Do you know how cold it is in NYC right now? MUCH too cold for bare legs, Ginny.

    • http://robot-heart.tumblr.com heartbot

      The jacket reminds me of 50s flight attendant uniforms. That’s the most positive thing I can say about any of this.

    • Emily Wylie

      Nobody say anything or she’ll run back to her sour fashion face!!   SHE’S SMILING!!! I’m so, so happy for her — and I have nothing invested in her at all, don’t watch her show or anything.  But I do read this blog, and her unhappiness on the runway is so palpable you can nearly see the thought-bubble above her, replaying over and over the horrible memory of some biddy telling her “you look chubby when you smile, honey” or some such awfulness.  And so I am really actually thrilled to see her smiling. I hope it’s not just because she’s promoting oral health.  

    • H2olovngrl

      I wonder why she left her cane, top hat and tap shoes in the limo? Or…where did she leave her pillbox hat and cigarette tray?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/PZJXF5ET5W5PMUIIGTTNOKHVSY Ka T

      If there was a look to like, it would be the one on the model.  The shorts don’t look so who-wears-short-shorts, whereas on Ginnifer, they look very unflattering.  Plus I think she should have left the jacket unbuttoned.  I love the stars on the blouse, though.

      Hi, I’m Ginnifer, but you can call me Ginny! I’m just thrilled that you’re joining us for our Walt Disney Cruise Line cruise for dental health! This morning we’re all going to gargle and rinse with true blue Listerine!
      She’s an awfully good sport to dress as a manicpixie dental hygienist.

      Fine I’ll say it, if no – one else is going to, and I know it’s rude. But she must retire this hairstyle, because it makes her look like a prick. She looks so much better when she doesn’t have this hair. Also, OF-COURSE.

      This has to be a Hall of Famer. One of the worst of the very worst. She’s like MVP of the OUT Team.

      I’m just so glad to see her smiling! If only she didn’t wear the awful nude lipstick! I can forgive the outfit, but not the lipstick! A smile goes a long way with her.
