AnnaSophia Robb Double Shot

Posted on March 04, 2013

We’re not sure if we ever mentioned this, but we once bumped into BabyCarrie at Fashion Week. Literally. She gave us the dirtiest look. But trust us when we say, dirty looks are practically required at Fashion Week and we sure hope no one judges us for occasionally sporting one when someone bumps into our tired, achey asses. We certainly don’t judge BabyCarrie. Not for that, anyway.

Her clothes, on the other hand…

 

AnnaSophia Robb attends the ‘Cinderella’ Broadway Opening Night in New York City in Alice + Olivia.

It’s just really hard for us to look at a white lacey dress, at that length, with that silhouette, and not think it looks a little like a First Holy Communion dress. Especially when you put it on a baby-faced young gal. Even if we ignore our provincial assumptions and just take it on its own terms, we’re not in love. We don’t like the competing whites or the way the skirt attaches. Add those tricky sleeves and some feathers and the whole thing looks like it’s trying too hard. Mentally remove at least two elements from this dress and it instantly improves.

Can’t say we love the shoes, though.

 

Anna Sophia Robb attends the H&M Denim Days Launch in New York City in H&M.

This is actually cute – and highly appropriate for something called “Denim Days” at H&M.It feels like it needs to be youthened just a bit, though. It’s dangerously close to Blanche Devereux realness. A sassier top or pair of shoes would’ve gone a long way.

Looking at these two outfits together, it seems to us that she’s doing a lighter take on her show costuming. In other words, there’s something vaguely ’80s-esque about the looks, but they’d never pass an accuracy test for the period.

    these clothes here dont pass an accuracy test for the 80s just like the clothes on the show would never pass one either.

    and yeah, she’s about to meet me and dorothy on the lanai for ice tea and girl talk in the 2nd pic. 

    overall, Im feeling like she should be doing more style wise to be claiming to be the on-screen heir to the fabulousness of sjp.

       OK I’ll be Rose and tell her: “Oh dear, you seem to have left your blouse at the bar…If you remember which one, we can go back and get it.”

      i agree; her people should know to hire a more risky stylist for these events.  she’s adorable, but she should be out there with more of a bold style presence since she’s BabyCarrie.

  • imperfectlaura

    The first look looks like something Michelle Williams would’ve worn.  In other words, the dress looks perfect for the mayor of Twee-Ville. I think I would’ve preferred the second one with a funky pair of flats.  That would make it feel more youthful.

    The white one wasn’t even for Cindarella on Ice? Weird. I like her little sequined jacket but I am 20 years older than her.

  • Sobaika

    The second look is super cute. I need to find me a metallic blazer…

  • MilaXX

    That first dress is too young for her and the shoes are a big NO. I’m not crazy about the shoes in the second look, but I do like the look.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    The first one makes her look like a Hostess Sno-Ball.

       too soon!

      (but no, she does)

    • StellaZafella

       There’s some serious static on that marabou fringe…it does look exactly like coconut.

  • Annabelle Archer

    Oh honey, sit down and be quiet, the grown ups are talking. 

  • margaret meyers

    Can’t you just hear her mom?  “Now SPARKLE, baby!”

  • greyhoundgirl

    What bugs me about the first dress are the different whites.  The brighter top makes the skirt look dull, like it was used to do the dishes too many times.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/BJTY6KY7LOR7MDOD6QCZUC3VVI Donna Tabor

       It’s probably the difference between synthetic trim and natural fabric for the dress itself. They tend to read differently under some indoor lighting.

  • butterflysunita

    The first dress would be cute on a four year old.  
    I really like the second look.
    I don’t see her as Carrie at all.  

  • kimmeister

    It must’ve been BOGO day at the metallic shoe store.

    She really is cute as a button though, isn’t she?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=717955989 Barbara Affolter

    I do like how very pleased she looks to be so famous while still an embryo. I can’t stand a sour-faced teenage starlet.

    • Alyssa

      Me too…a smile goes a long way!

  • http://www.facebook.com/izzzyy Dixie Murphy Ross

    Is she wearing the same shoes in different metallic tones? #soguiltyofthat #wouldneveradmitit

  • teensmom99

    My teen would totally go for the top dress if she saw it at Forever 21–and it looks to me like she might see it there.

  • PeaceBang

    I love how the rose gold of her hair matches the rose gold of her blingy jacket in the second outfit. 

  • newleaf1

    Anyone else think she looks a little like LiLo in the second shot?

  • Indovina

    I don’t have First Communion dress associations with white lace, what with having been raised in heathenry (not Heathenry, mind you), but I agree that the tone contrasts between the different whites is aesthetically not pleasing and there might be just too much going on with the dress.

    I kind of love the second look, though. I don’t love the shoes, but otherwise I think it’s fantastic. It would seem that I am – apparently – all for adopting some Blanche Devereux realness.

  • SewingSiren

    I like the First Communion dress and I love Cinderella, especially the one with Leslie Ann Warner. She was so pretty.
    The second one is fine.

  • lobsterlen

    Please bless me T Lo for I have sinned and wore my first holy communion dress on the red carpet. Signed AnnaSophia Robb

  • Janet B

    The skirt portion of the white dress could be perfect, but not as is.
    The matching jacket and shoes remind me of my long departed grandmother who lived in Boca Raton.
    How much does she like shiny shoes?

  • Alyssa

    In 5th grade, I got to be an extra dancer for a touring Broadway show of Cinderella…oh the memories! The first dress is almost too costumey for me to take seriously, and veers bridal in a way. The second look has potential, but definitely needed to be styled younger!

  • AthenaJ

    *wails* She will NEVER be Carrie!!!! *sobs and flings self onto bed in a fit of pique*

    Seriously though, she seems nice enough, but the only similarity I’m seeing is thin and blond. And even then the shade is off.  

  • barbarienne

    The first dress fails because it’s a youthening dress that makes a youthful person look like a child. On someone age 30 (and with less foofaraw) it might be made to work.

    The second outfit is an older-lady outfit that works because she is so young no one can mistake her for older. Put it on a 30-year-old and people will ask why the 30YO is dressing like she’s 60.

    I think it’s the same shoes in both outfits, just silver in one and copper in the other. Kind of uncreative, but maybe she finds that particular shoe very comfortable.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1594250515 Kim Brightman

      I thought that about the shoes as well but they look stiff and uncomfortable as hell to me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1594250515 Kim Brightman

    Rose gold is certainly a beautiful color on her. 

  • Sadie-Ann

    I wish the jeans in the second were a darker wash. 

  • Imasewsure

    i kind of love the second look because it looks like real life dressed up dress down wear… don’t even hate the shoes on her. Do hate everything about the first look though… hair down with combat boots and it might have almost worked

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

    She looks more like Baby Jenna Maroney to me. 

  • Zippypie

    The second look is cute.  The first look is pretty ridiculous on anyone over the age of 10.

  • decormaven

    She plays Baby Carrie. C’mon, stylist, we’re expecting to see more edited looks for her. That first dress is juvenile, and the second look is ho-hum, even if it is a sparkly jacket. And the shoes in both looks appear to come from Payless. Even Baby Carrie would have sprung for some more expensive footwear. I’m not expecting to see her sporting something that more experienced fashionistas would wear, but these are just too lame for words.

  • Trisha26

    She looks 10 years older in the second outfit. Must have gotten a discount on those shoes – 2 for 1.

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

    Those pants make her hips look enormous, but maybe it’s a camera angle.  Gold’s a great color for her.

  • Judy_J

    Shoes from Payless’ BOGO sale.

  • Anniebet

    First look is just too 12 year old. Second is fine, sans the matronly shiny cardigan. And for heaven’s sake, saying her hips look enormous is just… well, incomprehensible. She’s a very slim young woman, albeit one with questionable taste in shoes.

  • guest2visits

    The second look is very pretty on her. The first dress needs to be more fitted; and lose the sleeves and collar. The silver shoes
    are not very interesting considering they’re bright metallic.

  • bd73

    80s-esque on #2 is the pegged pants (well, rolled up. that white dress is a hybrid of two different dresses.

  • j_anson

    She looks… DANGEROUSLY cheerful in shot #2.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Those shoes look like your feet would just be swimming in sweat at the end of the day.  Sorry I know that’s disgusting but it’s all I can think about.

  • http://korilian.livejournal.com/ korilian

    I don’t think the H&M look actually needs to be youthened, because she’s dressed pretty much how her age group is dressing (in Amsterdam at any rate). If she was on the street she might have paired it with a different necklace and booties, but she’s at some kind of party, so a little dressed up is fine.

    The white dress looks like the feathers on a breed of chicken called a “Frizzle” http://www.backyardchickens.com/image/id/5540982

    First outfit: I’M THE SWAN QUEEN!

    Second outfit: I need that blazer in my life.

  • RedRaven617

    Love it! (the photo)

  • Indigo54

    That first dress reminds me of one of those overdone Easter dresses.  All she needs is a basket with a chocolate bunny and a dozen peeps inside. 

  • formerlyAnon

    #1 is more a misguided party dress for an early teen or tween (all of that fluffery on the skirt kills any First Communion associations for me.)

    #2 is just missed or sub par in oh, so many ways. Jeans in a wash that light are just never going to look anything but tacky to me.

  • libraangel

    How adorably sweet – nausea – inducing sweet

  • PrunellaV

    Hey, I’m thinking Blanche Devereaux is back!

  • kathrineb

    This girl loves metallic shoes. Look two is sort of cute but look one…not so much.
