IN or OUT: Anna Kendrick in Thakoon

Posted on April 09, 2013

Oh, this is really cute:

 

Anna Kendrick attends Vogue‘s ‘Triple Threats’ dinner held at Goldie’s in Los Angeles in Thakoon.

Thakoon Pre-Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Asia Piwka

Not entirely sold on that orange being a friend to her coloring, but this such a great little eye-catching dress.  You might be wondering why we’re bothering to put it up for a vote. Two reasons:

  1. We’re going to put up a decidedly less obviously pretty outfit up for a vote later and figured we’d do the kittens a solid and let them play with something pretty before we break out the not-pretty.
  2. We have quibbles.

On the latter, we’ll just go straight to the most distracting: that choker. We’re not inclined to like chokers anyway, because for decades, chokers were the go-to choice for drag queens who needed to hide their Adam’s apples. It’s not fair, but to a gay man of a certain age, ladies in chokers are automatically ladies with penises. Besides, we don’t much like that choker, which sits on her like a neck bangle. Also, we think her lip color is off and the mermaid hair makes us sad.

Hey, we did say they were quibbles. Now go ahead… tell us we’re bitches.

Vote Now!

 

IN! You’re bitches!

 

OUT! You’re not bitches!

 

 

Oh, and one more time for the newbies (because we’re getting emails again): No, there’s nothing wrong with your screen. There is no “clickable vote” option here. We instead encourage our kittens to tell us all their vote and then tell us all why they voted that way. Jump into the conversation, darlings! The water’s fine and the fish have claws!

In other news, the Bitter Kittens surprised us by voting Rosario Dawson’s dusty rose Snuggie IN.

    Good morning Kittens!

    In – IF – she takes off that damn thing around her neck.

  • yethica

    In, but that’s only by ignoring the weird-ass choker.

  • SewingSiren

    I like orange ,I don’t have a problem with chokers .or adam’s apples. Sos it tis in from me.

  • AmeliaEve

    OUT – this is a gorgeous dress, but not for her in those colors. It’s a shame, because the fit is excellent and the shape is flattering, but that orange is not doing her any favors. This dress would be magic on a black woman, but not on her.

    And I agree with everything you said about the choker. Ugh.

  • DeGuz

    Sorry, but no. This is O to the UT. The color is horrific on her.

  • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

    Totally in. I don’t love the choker but she’s too cute for school.

  • BrianDC

    I think its eye-catching and interesting while still being pretty, but I CAN’T with that choker. On the whole though…definitely in!

  • http://www.twitter.com/anneofnogables AnneNotHathaway

    It reminds me of that campfire horror story about the lady who wears a ribbon around her neck and won’t take it off, and when her husband unties it when she’s sleeping, her head falls off.

    That being said–still a solid in. I don’t even hate the color on her.

    • Cautiously Pessimistic

      That’s ALWAYS my first thought with chokers. They creep me out.

      The dress is still pretty enough to get an IN, though. (The new Disqus system is still getting an out.)

    • FancyPhilly

      Totally. That is the exact same story I think of every time I see a choker too! By the way it makes a fantastic Halloween costume: paint your face deathly pale, dress up all nice-like, tie a velvet ribbon around your neck. Voila!

    • snarkykitten

      The Girl with the [insert color] Ribbon! Yes!

    • drdarke

      With that collar choker and that dress, I figured she was auditioning for HOUSEWIVES OF GOR. Either that, or playing the “Wanna-Mate” in the film adaptation of SCREW THE ROSES, SEND ME THE THORNS.

      Sorry I can’t get my head out of BDSM-Land – but that’s not a choker, that’s a slave collar Anna Kendrick’s wearing. I caught myself looking for the name of her Master or Mistress engraved on it….

      And that dress takes me back to something a housewife would wear in a Fifties sitcom – the color’s good on her, but the pattern looks like the coverlet I brought from home when my future wife and I started living together…and she used as padding for some picture frames she had.

      OTOH – my wife’s (more fashion-forward than I) assistant came in while I was writing this and said she thought Ms. Kendrick carries off the dress beautifully, and makes it look elegant. She wasn’t thrilled about the collar either, but is willing to give it a pass….

      OUT for me – IN for my wife’s assistant.

      • http://twitter.com/carelessriver Caterina Maria

        Ha, so it wasn’t just me. Spot-on with HOUSEWIVES OF GOR.

        • drdarke

          Oh, good, @Caterina Maria! I was beginning to worry D/s jokes weren’t welcome here….

          As I said, the color’s good on her, which is why you want it to work. A different print (one that’s a bit less floral, maybe?), and a copper-wire necklace would have made that look a winner, I think.

  • Carole Scofield

    Interesting to read the other comments so far. I find the orange really nice on her, actually. I think this is the prettiest I’ve seen her look. The neck bangle, well, kind of odd. But that makes it no less in. IN!!

  • http://twitter.com/Glam_Dixie Glam Dixie

    Bitches! :) In, I don’t mind the choker, it’d be better without it, but she looks adorable.

  • Judy_S

    I like the colors. In.

  • Jessi03

    In! I love it, even if the choker kind of hangs weirdly on her.

  • lehen

    no to all chokers. out.

  • abish

    She looks a bit like a centerpiece on a Thanksgiving table decorated by Sandra Lee.

    • Julie Fountain

      Hah! Yes! A tablescape!

  • Lilyana_F

    Out. I don’t see it guys, that print is so damn ugly to me. The shoes are absolutely wrong for the dress, that choker is weird and together with the hair the whole thing is giving me this confusing Native American vibe for some reason… I don’t know, is it just me?

  • MoHub

    I would have less of a problem with the choker if the dress had a boatneck or deep V rather than a crewneck. But on the whole, it’s an IN.

  • Nicholas

    It’s very, very, very (very) matchy, but the weird choker aside, I think she looks fine.

  • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

    IN – but she has to lose the collar. Matching your choker to your clutch is weird. I really like the dress although I think the colour would be better on her when her hair is a shade darker.

  • DinaSews

    IN. I don’t like the accessories, but my eye is still drawn to the dress when I look.

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

    I pretty much unabashedly love this. IN.
    Also, lol in re clickable vote emails. Always show your work, darling unborn fawns.

  • MilaXX

    IN – I too hate chokers, always have, but that;s the only quibble I have with the look.

  • jw_ny

    IN

    hate the choker and her hair, but the rest is fine.

  • filmcricket

    Lower-case in. Agreed on the choker and the lipstick. Don’t really care about the hair, it’s shiny and pretty and looks *done* which is more than you can say about a lot of starlets. But the dress sure is pretty on her.

  • Introspective

    hate the choker. and the dress silhouette is flattering but that print is busy, feels dated and has a color scheme that doesnt pop on her.

    out with a small o? love is in the details anna.

  • Jangle57

    I don’t much like the dress regardless of who’s wearing it (I think primarily because of the colors used) but the orange with her coloring is not flattering IMO so OUT

    • mhleta

      Change the bronze to cobalt and that fucker would sing, wouldn’t it?

  • http://twitter.com/jen_canary Jennifer Ford

    I think overall the look works, quibbles aside. The choker looks cute from a distance but up close it is a bit odd.

    Still, I’d call this an IN.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    The more I look, the less I like it.
    Out

    • AudreysMom

      ditto. The first glance – mostly the gorge fabric and print – are eye catching. Then on longer view, for me it becomes the problem. I see only the dress and it takes away from her beautiful hair/hair color and face. Add the choker (horrible name for a piece of jewelry) and it’s a definite out. Like the pockets tho. Maybe she chose it specifically to go with her out for Chinese food.

      • urbanamish

        should have just kept the skirt, the one on the model, with it’s structure and the pattern thats more open in the center. (otherwise it’s just a jumble.)
        with a simple top. yes, this way it looks like it was made from the curtains in shun lee palace.

  • Sobaika

    Chokers are fine, but not with a higher neckline and hair left down.

    In. It’s pretty even if the outfit is monochromatic.

  • RebeccaKW

    In. I dislike the choker, I don’t like the shoes with this, and I think she needed different hair, but she looks great overall. That dress is super-cute.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=2066192 Melissa Mellon

    It looks like she *just* escaped captivity in time to attend a dinner.

  • d4divine

    The dress is in…the choker is out, I love a choker but it has to fit or it looks sloppy. Modern. dress modern hair, isn’t that how it goes?

  • mhleta

    IN, with two big “Buts”– “But” #1 – the choker is completely unnecessary and silly. And “But” #2 – You’re marvelous bitches, don’t ever change.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    In, but I’m so with you on the choker.

  • Kathy_Marlow

    All I see is disembodied head and pretty dress…still an In

  • http://remedialstitcher.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

    In, though that choker just makes me think, slave collar. Hair, meh.

  • http://www.facebook.com/AdriannaGrezak Adrianna Grężak

    Agree that it might not be her color, but its a fun dress – IN

  • disqus_sZRDWtvvVD

    No, not out. It’s not offensive. Not a strong IN, but IN.

  • AlisonS

    I wonder if I would like it more or less if she wore this in the Fall. Would I be saying then it’s TOO fall for fall? Like right now, I’m saying it’s too fall for spring, but is that enough to say she’s out completely? No I don’t think so.
    What does say she’s out completely is the horrid looking choker that looks like a piece of copper twisted around her neck. OUT

  • Little_Olive

    In:

    - I like the hair for this.
    - Pretty and different dress. One of the few times satin has not turned into a tragedy.
    - The choker is a great accessory as it picks up the color of the dress and takes into her face; the neck would be bare to me otherwise. The problem is the neckline, really. Either round and closed or some kind of boatneck, but that is neither here nor there and it suits no one.

  • http://twitter.com/kendallbrunson SassyMcFrench

    OUT! Besides the awful choker, that skirt needs to begin around her belly button. The way it starts lower is awkward. Also, this could use a belt (after the skirt is raised – of course).

  • http://www.facebook.com/RocketStarling Ashley Ellen Wilson

    IN. I likes it.

  • LongTall_Sally

    In! But the choker is bad. I don’t even hate all chokers, but I hate this one.

  • poggi

    I like the dress and don’t hate the color on her, but the choker doesn’t work for me. I guess she wanted to give it some edge, but the choker just looks odd and really odd with the dress. Also the lip color is off. Maybe a neutral lip (something close to her natural lip color, not the weird beige). I guess in (but I am not enthusiastic about it).

  • Michael_Jones

    Quibbles, but IN.

  • carnush

    I really really hate the choker and think it’s messing up the whole line of the look, but the dress is very cute. Her face and hair are perfect and I don’t know what you’re talking about. IN.

  • Cathy S

    The choker is my only quibble. I think she looks great and is IN.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000088447181 Sam Smith

    I like the print and overall look, but no to the choker. Also rented Pitch Perfect this past weekend, really funny and cute movie.

  • nannypoo

    I love the color on her. The lipstick is wrong and so is the choker, but IN.

  • Hetha Innis

    In! Love that dress on her. The choker has got to go! And the mermaid hair is almost refreshing after seeing so many stars with cocker spaniel hair for so long, but this would seem like the type of dress to rock the sleek pony, would it not?

    • http://profiles.google.com/anplica Anplica Fiore

      Thank you for beating me to this statement. :) IN for me as well. The choker does indeed seem like a faulty afterthought. A VERY Faulty Afterthought.

  • teensmom99

    In–only misstep is the choker.

  • CheriCPat

    Out. The choker is such a wrong choice for this dress, and there is something wrong in the proportions. It makes her look ridiculously long-waisted and short-legged. I realize it has a drop waist, but not all drop waist dresses do that to all wearers, so there is something off here specifically. Hem length? Shoes? Not sure, but it’s off putting, and combined with the choker, totally out.

  • VictoriaDiNardo

    I think the dress looks great on her, but yeah, lose the choker – besides being heavy it looks uncomfortable and distracting.

    On the hair front – I mentioned this the other day – I feel like I’m seeing this one-shoulder hair look everywhere – not just on actresses, but yesterday on Yoani Sanchez, the Cuban blogger, and the other night Marina Abramovich on Charlie Rose. Maybe I’m just getting sensitive to it and seeing it a lot because it’s started to bug, or it’s a Thing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Josefina-Madariaga-Suárez/100002964685796 Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    It’s an IN to me. The only thing that doesn’t work for me is the hair color, but I’m willing to overlook that.

  • TheLaurenJean

    Out. It hurts my eyes. I mean, honestly, it’s not a bad dress, it’s just not nice to see. I can think of literally a 100 dresses that would look better than this on her. And none of them would cost half as much. OUT.

  • Lori

    Out. I don’t think that color really works on her and that choker, especially with that neckline, is not good.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

    IN!

    Perfectly proportioned, which is not always easy on a petite & busty gal like Miss Anna. Plus the dress is super adorable. The choker was a terrible choice, but still in regardless. :)

  • formerlyAnon

    In. I’d have said the problem was the color palette of the dress, rather than the choker – which works beautifully with the dress. But, in either case, quibbles.

  • Maluca

    The chocker distracts me from everything else. I do like the dress though.

  • ballerinawithagun

    In, because I love the dress. I love chokers, just not with this neckline. It does require some jewelry though such as a big bracelet and rings. The fit of the dress is perfect (no underarm pooch) love the dropped waist and the length.

  • Sarah Tulley

    In. Except for the necklace. And I’m not entirely sold on the shoes. But think the dress is super cute and flattering on her.

  • MissMariRose

    IN despite the choker.

  • Janet B

    In. Although, if she’s going to wear orange, then she needs a complimentary lipstick.

  • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

    When I first looked at this, I thought the choker was a piece of fabric loosely tied around her neck. After I read your comments and looked more closely, I saw, of course, that it was metal that was reflecting the color and print of the dress. But it still is doing her no favors. Don’t mind the hairstyle although I like her better when her hair is a darker brown, and less red. The dress is fun and kicky, far better than the suit on the model. All in all: IN.

    And thanks for starting the day with a pretty!

  • KQ67

    Hate the choker, love everything else. In!

  • decormaven

    The accessories make it an OUT for me. Not a fan of the choker, and the pointy shoes give me eye twitch. She is a cute girl, but her style team does her no favors.

  • http://twitter.com/thejesssicashow Jessica Crowl

    My thoughts exactly on the choker – err, the bangle thing, not the adams apple thing – but still IN.

  • lizajane1776

    Love the dress, hair, even the lip color. Shoes are so done they are boring now, boring purse, dislike the choker.
    I guess it adds up to an in.

  • RedRaven617

    In. The necklace is a forgivable offense.

  • http://twitter.com/nuanc Nancy SM Waldman

    A beautiful print and style. IN!

  • Mismarker

    My sentiments, exactly. It looks like a gold-plated shock collar.

  • Julie Fountain

    I just really don’t like the print of that fabric. And the choker is awful, so Out with this one. I do like that silhouette on her, though and her makeup looks good. Still, out.

  • PastryGoddess

    OUT
    The choker killed it for me. Why would you wear a choker with a high necked dress?
    The color is a bit off, but it’s not too bad

  • Catiline

    I have to give this an OUT. I don’t know if she’s just a victim of bad lighting or what, but just looking at that orange color gives me the taste of Day-Quil in my mouth.

  • FancyPhilly

    If she was photographed in a different room with more of a blue light I might like it more. I’m giving it a tepid “in”. It fits her well, I like the shoes, and she looks pretty. I do however hate the choker, and hate the hair.

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

    IN but i don’t care for the accessories either. i think that’s the wrong shoe.

  • crash1212

    IN. What a cute dress, but I agree with the choker quibble…not needed and just weird. I think she looks pretty in orange. Don’t hate the hair and I like her shoe choice better than the models. Nicely done Anna.

    Also, I love this site for NOT having “click to vote” (while there’s nothing wrong with that) as I do love to give my opinion!

    • ampg

      All of the things you said. Also, I love how perfectly fitted it is. IN.

  • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

    IN! The dress is really cute, but I hate the choker. I wish her hair were a little more polished, but I think her makeup looks nice – especially since she didn’t fall into the cotton-candy-lip trap.

  • itsnotoveryet11

    I think it’s an IN and more importantly where can I find her so I can steal this from here and twirl in my room for hours.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

    In, but the choker is SO BAD.

  • http://www.facebook.com/stellavision Stella Daily Zawistowski

    Good enough for an IN, if far short of a WERQ.

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

    It’s not the best color on her and I hate that choker with the fire of a thousand suns, but like the lines of the dress and the fit. Plus, it’s interesting. A cautious, qualified IN.

  • http://twitter.com/susanpcollier Susan Collier

    IN (and I agree with all your quibbles).
    She really fits into her environment there (is it a fancy Chinese restaurant in the ’70s?). Did Janie Bryant do this?

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    IN – although I not only don’t like the choker, it looks damned uncomfortable. The print and colors look more fall than spring to me, but it is a really cute dress on Anna and i think the color looks good on her.

  • http://twitter.com/connectinglines Me Again

    IN. Perhaps not her BEST color, but she still rocks it.

  • StellaZafella

    I never wore a choker to hide my Adam’s apple…I am a drag queen for gosh sake not a woman. But I have a penchant for “high collar” jewels. Things that extend from pendant depth right up to just at the neck. I wouldn’t wear a ribbon choker because I once heard a story that Mary, Queen of Scot’s wore a red ribbon high on her neck to her own execution.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      I too love a jewel at nestled at that sweet spot under the throat. But that requires a delicate chain.

    • Kimbolina

      Reminds me of some Halloween-y urban legend ghost story kind of thing my friend used to always tell me about a girl who always wore a ribbon around her neck and when her boyfriend untied it her head fell off…

      ETA: I see someone else below me already mentioned this! Hah!

  • Victoria Perry

    I love the shape and I don’t mind the print. The choker isn’t quite right, but IN

  • E. D.

    IN. Don’t mind the choker.

  • Chickadeep

    In. I hate the choker, but I always spot Anna K. a bunch of style points because she hails from a town where people wear L.L. Bean to the Symphony, and she’s more stylish than pretty much everyone else there on her *worst* day.

  • Nunya Bizness

    In. She’s always in. The end.

  • prettybigkitty

    Choker bad. Dress good. In!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=528009972 Jennifer Small

    Completely agree with your quibbles but still an IN – I love the dress and I love that she’s successfully wearing a print.

  • Alyssa

    In. Love the dress, only thing I dislike is the choker. I’m never a fan of chokers. However, the gorgeousness of the dress & the way it’s fitted to her overcomes my choker-dislike!

  • carolynmo

    I don’t care for it. However, I’ll give an unenthusiastic in because I like her effort with red carpets looks. I don’t think Anna would ever “pull a Jolie.” I think I got the phrase right.

  • http://www.djplaw.com/ Tadiana

    Easy IN for me, but I’m a sucker for orange/rust clothing. I can’t disagree about the choker but overall she looks very pretty.

  • http://twitter.com/EmFairbank Emily

    In. I love the way the dress fits and the quibbles are just that, quibbles. Not enough going wrong to be an out.

  • tereliz

    Yup. The braid plus the choker are giving off a creepy “slave-Leia” vibe. You’re such a beautiful woman and a wonderful actress, Anna. Please don’t make me associate you with slave-Leia on the RC. Save it for Comicon.

    Seriously, though, I LOVE that dress!

  • Aly Light

    I have toe drag queen association, too, but while I don’t like it, it doesn’t utterly spoil the effect of the rest of the outfit. IN.

  • Allyson Wells

    IN – yes, the necklace is bad, but the hair doesn’t bother me. It’s a braid, which is different than the typical “mermaid hair” in my book. Love that dress!

  • Kenisha Hill Phillips

    In, choker notwithstanding.

  • marilyn

    Barely in. There is not really anything offensive about the dress or the styling. I think the color works for her, and it is nice because you don’t see it that often. It is not outstanding.

  • Sunshine16

    Best AK has looked in a long time, quibbles bitches. She’s in!

  • korilian

    I kind of like the choker. It’s very sci-fi.

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    IN! Even with the choker. Did anyone else notice her dress (mostly) matches the restaurant décor?

  • another_laura

    In because the choker isn’t killing it for me (although it looks like it could kill her).

  • Bailey Debruynkops

    out, the dress is doing all the heavy lifting & it’s not enough.

  • librarygrrl64

    IN, but I agree about the choker. I had a dress in 1972 or thereabouts (I was 8) that had a matching strip of fabric which attached in the back and looked like a choker from the front. I thought I was hot shit. Yeah, not so much. That’s what this looks like. Except that mine was lilac with purple hippos on it. And it was polyester. ;-)

  • CatherineRhodes

    I cannot believe my fellow kittens voted Rosario’s dress in. WTF?! Talk about fuggly.

    However, Anna is definitely IN. I like the choker, although perhaps we should lift her skirt just to check.

  • gabbilevy

    In. I think the color is an unexpected choice (for both season and her coloring) but it works.

  • Tatiana Luján

    IN.
    The lip color looks very pretty in my computer and that shade of orange seems to suit her. Maybe it’s my screen.
    I don’t like the choker or the hair, but she looks so good overall, that I don’t care.

  • Jackie4g

    IN, but you already knew that because you have forewarned us. TLO, you are the harbinger of spring fug.

  • http://twitter.com/ashleynalvarez Ashley Alvarez

    No. Just no.But yes to the orange!

  • dickylarue

    Way to ruin my fetish born in the late 90′s early 2000′s for girls who wear chokers guys. I had an ex g/f who used to tie a piece of ribbon around her neck like a choker that got me really hot. That feeling stuck with me until this post.

  • Imasewsure

    Not out enough to be an out but I don’t love it. In but no rousing cheers here

  • Sara__B

    Out. At first glance, it was In — it’s a great little dress — but it doesn’t hold up to closer inspection for all the “quibbles” you mentioned, T Lo.

  • unbornfawn

    OUT. It is a great dress. It is not her dress. The choker is a huge mistake.

  • http://twitter.com/ndpndntfilm Susan Velazquez

    God dammit Anna I love you but you dress badly Out

  • http://twitter.com/MelanieM_Texas Melanie Morgan

    The dress is IN, the choker is OUT.

  • KSpence

    I just love her and she looks cute here. In.

  • fringebenefit

    IN! I don’t think she’s ever looked cuter. Coloring perfect. And I love the choker. Soup-to-nuts terrific. Slightly prefer the stiff a-line shape of the skirt on the model.

  • kmk05

    IN. Not sold about the colour, but the dropped waist (is it?) and the fit are perfect. It is also less costume-y than on the model, where the flare is amped x1000. Don’t mind the choker too much, because it’s loose. The hair is making me cry.

  • RoxieRider

    In. That dress… good god I want that dress. The quibbles can’t compete.

    One side note–in the first picture, I thought she was wearing visible garter stockings, which is a simultaneously awesome and repulsive idea for this look.

  • Tracy_Flick

    OUT! And you’re bitches.

  • fashionzombie

    OUT. She looks cute, and that dress is great. However, the combination of the hair and choker bothers me way too much. Either one or the other, friend! Also: either “that choker is enormous,” or “that cuff necklace is for a five-year old.” Neither option works.

  • Coco Cornejo

    OUT. The pattern of your dress shouldn’t clash with the pattern of the wall-to-wall carpeting you are standing on.

  • http://CallMeJane.com/ CallMeJane

    Yuck. I want to put the dress on a brunette. I give her points for considering the risky choker, but then take points away for actually wearing it.

  • Snailstsichr

    The shoes look like they are giving her poor posture – something about the way she is standing is making the dress look too tight.
    But, I love the color and design and, after mentally erasing the choker, I’m giving it a lower case in.

    IN IN IN. I would cut someone for this dress in my size.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=724916801 facebook-724916801

    In, but with agreement on the poor choice of jewelry. The coppery dress and its divine cut suit her beautifully.

    Not so sure about the choker. From a distance (start singing…) the choker seems ok, but the close-up shot makes it a no-go. Other than that it’s very pretty. I’m wondering if I would like it more in person vs. a photograph.

    Out, it just doesn’t suit her,

  • Crystal

    When did we start wearing chokers again? I thought that trend died!

  • http://twitter.com/Hussified Coleen

    I know we’re really supposed to vote on the look itself, but Anna Kendrick is one of my favorite women in Hollywood thanks to “Pitch Perfect” and her Instagram, plus I wish I could rock that print. So she’s an IN.

  • PeaceBang

    OUT. Hate the choker and hate the cut of the dress with the dropped waist. She’s giving off subtle shades of Wild West Saloon Girl and it’s not working for me.

  • Trisha26

    OUT. Hair, choker, dropped waist, full skirt, and length, shoes – all hein.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jackie.atkins.31 Jackie Atkins

    Gotta say 52% IN to the dress, 48% OUT to the styling.

  • Chantal

    IN. Wonderful dress, and I actually quite like the colour on her. Although the weird semi-choker is sad.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=647819696 MaryAlice Finley Davis

    I like it. Not many people can wear orange, and she looks cute. And I like the choker :)

  • Kathleen B

    IN though I agree with the choker and lip color quibbles

  • Carina Green

    Uh…dorable.

  • trisker

    IN for me too. I like the dress. Hate the choker and the hair.

  • MissAmynae

    in..In..IN!!!! Love it, head to toe.

  • alyce1213

    IN. Great little dress, full of life. Hate the choker. The gold-tipped black shoes actually work with this dress.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Thankfully she didn’t wear the jacket with the boob pockets…so IN. But the choker looks dangerous.

  • Louise Bryan

    I agree that the choker is not good, although I doubt that anyone could mistake Anna Kendrick for a drag queen. I have yet to see a drag queen that delicately pretty. Apart from the choker, I like this dress much, much better than the collection picture. And – I think her hair is pretty, and I always wanted hair like that. IN!

  • Synnamin

    In! and I love the choker (but then, I wear a slim silver one 24/7, so I’m biased)

  • stagmania

    IN. I’m also not a fan of the choker, but it doesn’t kill it for me.

  • Carly Warnock

    Out. The choker destroyed that look for me… and well, tbh I don’t like the dress. It’s all bad.

  • rh33

    Agree with the other kittens who say IN if the dog collar/Christmas chain thingy is removed from her neck.

  • lalahartma

    In, bitches!

  • newtonGOTbeaned

    Even though the collar is terrible, I love/want that dress. So, in.

  • http://twitter.com/aidanboleyn Aidan B

    In! Not a color we see often on the red carpet, so extra points for originality. Plus the hem length is good, for once, and she looks sassy.

  • subwaycars

    I hate the choker too, but it’s still definitely an IN. It’s cute and flirty and the color makes it just a little unexpected.

  • sleepycat

    get rid of the choker, IN otherwise!

  • bellafigura1

    I have print exhaustion (I’m looking at you Peter Pilotto and you too Prabal Garung and hey Derek Lam) so I’m going to say OUT. Plus the choker is just weird.

  • conniemd

    In. Dress is eye catching and different without being odd. Agree with the styling, but the dress is good enough to make it an in.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=603005248 Jeff Warhurst

    I vote yay because in that dress, she makes me want egg foo yong and a Harvey Wallbanger.

  • Contralto

    IN, even with the choker and the not-so-great lipstick.

  • bd73

    in. deal with it. that dress is too cute. the choker makes me think of a slave collar on “game of thrones” but she’s young and you have to crawl before you walk (but not wear before you sit-test).

  • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com cheekypinky

    IN! But Oh, God, get rid of that damn choker, child.

  • rumcg66

    I’m giving it an IN, despite the freaky choker.

  • http://twitter.com/Eovaai Eovaai

    The cute outweights the choker and the hair for me. Definite IN.

  • semirose

    IN! Choker isn’t great but it’s not a deal breaker and everything else is super cute.

  • zelavie

    In. That choker is awful, but the dress is super cute and outweighs the awful.

  • http://twitter.com/flo_whytingale Florence Whytingale

    IN. LOVE this. Though the choker is a little too literal.

  • demidaemon

    I love everything here unreservedly except for that damn choker. It is EXTREMELY distracting. Not enough to give her an out, but still. IN, because I love this and her.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dan.wheeler.311056 Dan Wheeler

    In it’s stylish and flirty.

  • carolie_king

    OUT. Would’ve liked it maybe in a different color – the rust is making me sad. And no, no, a thousand times NO on the non-choker – don’t like chokers, don’t like that it’s made out of the dress fabric, don’t like that it looks like someone threw it around her head to win a goldfish.

  • Peeve

    Out. I really hate the print and the colors. Can’t get past it…

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=745465637 Nellie Wilson

    Nope, don’t like it. The collar and the hair clinch it for me, and drag what might have been a tiny in to a big fat OUT.

  • http://twitter.com/MarfMom Maya

    in

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    It looks like she should have a leash attached.

  • http://www.facebook.com/NicoleLittle1 Nicole Little

    Barely in. The choker is not good and the skirt part starts too low and gets too busy with the pleating. The print is cool though, and i dig the bold colours.

  • H2olovngrl

    Chokers will always remind me of the early to mid nineties.

  • http://profiles.google.com/h.e.waddell Heather Waddell

    IN! I don’t hate the choker, but it doesn’t work with this outfit. The dress, on the other hand, is stunning on her, especially the color.

  • jetpackdino

    In.

    I want to take that choker and move it up and over her head so it becomes a cute headband. Now the choker is gone, and her hair is back and up off of her pretty face. All better.

  • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

    It’s a cute look for her, if I ignore the choker. So IN, because I’m in a great mood today and full of the love!

  • Aurumgirl

    I think the colour’s fantastic, and the dress is pretty. She would look so much better without the ugly collar, though. It’s like someone thought the colour was “close enough” and opted to just “throw it on her”. That’s not styling, that’s just being mean.

  • http://twitter.com/carelessriver Caterina Maria

    IN. The dress drew my eye away from the hideous pink lips, and since I am not a gay man of a certain age, the choker just reads as vaguely kinky. :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/Makelevi John Jacques

    I like chokers…I just don’t like that one. I also dig the top half of that dress before it ‘fwoops’ out at the bottom like that.

    But hey, I’ll take anything with Anna Kendrick. She’s gorgeous!

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Somehow, I love it. IN!
