IN or OUT: Dianna Agron in Derek Lam

Posted on April 09, 2013

We did not react well to this look at all. We may have even recoiled from it a little.


‘Glee’ star Dianna Agron attends Vogue‘s ‘Triple Threats’ dinner held at Goldie’s in Los Angeles in a Derek Lam top and skirt paired with a Marc Jacobs bag.

It’s just that she’s such a pretty girl and she always seems to try hard to find ways to obscure that fact. The skirt and top are kind of cute, actually. But if you’re not tall enough to wear them the way they were designed to be worn, then you probably shouldn’t wear them. The stiffness of the fabric combined with the lack of belly skin the look actually needs to make it proportionally correct leaves her looking stumpy and thick when you know she’s anything but.

Also: that’s a terrible purse to pair with those pieces and we really hate her super-flat bottle-red hair. The makeup’s pretty, at least.

Are we being too hard?

    Out. Definitely out. Big time Girl, That’s Not Your Dress. I like the idea of red hair on her, though.

    • Sobaika

      I like the hair too, but quite literally nothing else. Girl, Get A New Stylist.

  • teensmom99

    I’m very sad to say this is OUT, but for the reasons enumerated above by the experts, it is.

  • Out. I don’t like the makeup either.

  • Okiewankenobi

    Out. I recoiled too due to that horrible purse. I actually prefer the look without the belly skin. To me it is more the skirt length that makes her look stumpy.

  • I really want to like this look – the pattern is wonderful in the skirt/top. But I have to agree with TLo – she lost her waist and that purse should be burnt after being added to this outfit. OUT

  • Bless her Amish heart. When did they get the okay to dye their hair?

  • tereliz

    OUT. She looks like an ottoman.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      and NOT the ones on the hairy turks porn site.

    • charlotte

      Ottoman Emma Roberts!

    • JosephLamour

      Her fashion sense is THE WORST.

    • jmorino08

      Perfect description!

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      The Hassock collection– now at Sears!

  • Jangle57

    Being too hard? Oh hell no. This is just wrong. OUT

  • alyce1213

    OUT. Very, very, very ugly.

  • Out. Looks incredibly aging for such a fresh face.

  • RebeccaKW

    Out. I really don’t like this dress (skirt and top? whatever). As an adopter of red hair, I applaud anyone who goes for it. But that shade is not for her. Also, you can’t keep the blonde hair makeup routine when you change your hair color.

  • No. Icky. OUT.

  • bizarro

    I kinda love it.

  • Tatiana Luján

    I actually think the top and skirt look better without the belly skin being exposed. I don’t like the hem lenght either on her or on the model.
    Red doesn’t seem to be the best hair color for her, but the makeup is pretty and the outfit is interesting. The purse is hideous,
    Dubious in.

  • dschubba

    If not for the title, I wouldn’t have recognized her.

  • jetpackdino

    I’ve never seen her before. Yes, I can get cable underneath this rock, why do you ask?

    Knowing that, my first impression is that she’s a rather beautiful girl. I actually like the hair, and her face is flawless. But the dress… yeah, I gotta admit that it’s bad. It looks like it was made out of the upholstery from a Thai restaurant in Vegas.

    • VioletFem

      She is only known for Glee, but she has been featured on TLo several times.

  • Martha Deutsch

    IN. Obviously accessorizing is tragic, but just for the dress alone gotta give her an IN. I don’t think the fit or cut are bad.

  • Catiline

    Out for all the reasons you describe. She is unrecognizably bland! Shame because that is such a cool, pretty dress – I could see maybe Zoe Saldana rocking it.

  • Janet B

    The skirt is a foot too long.

  • OUT! It doesn’t work with the changed proportions…worked better w/the midriff showing. Makes her look frumpy and her hair looks fried. Poor styling.

  • ralish

    In. I think the length is wrong and the material is too thick for my taste, but it’s interesting and kind of pretty. Hate her with hair this color red.

  • rloliveira

    I think the pattern on that dress looks like late-sixties bathroom wallpaper.

  • capybara_cafe

    Out, it’s just way too long for her.

  • another_laura

    Oh dear, OUT.

  • marilyn

    Out. Her hair picks up the color of that dress in a strange way. The skirt does not close smoothly at the bottom. You’re right-she is too short for all of this.

  • Diego!

    OUT she looks like a rug with a cushion on her hands! And I hate her hair, it looks like a drag queen’s wig.

  • erinbinek

    I actually really like her hair color. Okay, maybe not really like. Maybe it’s just nice to see something besides blond for a change. Everything else is an OUT.

  • Imasewsure

    You are not being too hard on the dear girl. Model’s version is cute and fun. This isn’t. Hair might settle in to something pretty but for now a big fat OUT all the way around

  • Out. The fabric and pattern are so heavy. And I prefer the blonde hair on her.

  • lalahartma

    I kinda like it, but the skirt is too long.

  • That’s totally the wrong shade of red hair for her. The dress is sort of ok, but I don’t like it on her, and the clutch is hideous.

  • Frank_821

    A big problem is her height but her proportions. She’s too short-waisted to pull off a look like that as well as she should. Also the skirt she’s wearing seems wider than the what the model is wearing and thus adds to her size in the wrong way

  • Apocalipstick Now Redux

    The makeup is fine? Really? That blush is an abomination. Then again, maybe her shiny cheeks are just reflecting the red of the dress.

  • crash1212

    OUT. Yikes. I’m not liking anything going on here, including the make-up. Get back to blonde STAT!

  • Louise Bryan

    In. I think it looks better without the belly skin. The clutch is wrong, granted, and her hair is limp, but I’m amazed that such a blandly inoffensive look would cause y’all to recoil.

    • Kristin McNamara

      Maybe TLo just *forgot to mention* that she apparently bathed in body glitter before leaving her hotel room, but that’s really what made them recoil. Because it did, me! (Like seriously, wtf is with her arms in that second pic?!) You’re almost 27, woman!

  • VioletFem

    If she wants to go red she should visit Christina Hendrick’s hairstylist.

  • jw_ny


    This is so much better without the belly skin showing! Love the pattern, colors, and the fit of the top. Hate the purse, hair is eh…ok, I guess.

  • No, she’s out. On top of everything you mentioned: if you have bottle-red hair, you have no excuse for wearing clothing that clashes. I usually think redheads can wear most anything they want, but this color is all wrong on her. OUT.

  • girliecue

    Brand new redheads do not have the chops needed to wear red. The outfit is cute, but a bad choice for her. Sorry, Dianna, I can’t defend you on this one. OUT.

  • l_c_ann


    My inner seamstress wants, nay demands that the grain of a weave be vertical, or at least mostly vertical.

  • Oh, such an easy vote: OUT. A walking quilt.

  • newtonGOTbeaned

    Her hair and her dress clash. Out.

  • Out. Hem length is terrible and the clutch is giving me hives.

  • Trisha26

    OUT. No look ever needs “belly skin” (shudder!) to look proportionately correct or otherwise. EVER. Just hem the skirt, exchange the bag for something red/black and get her a hair stylist.

  • MilaXX

    OUT! I don’t mind the hair color, but whoever is styling her is really missing the boat. Her accessories almost never have anything to do with her outfits.If the outfit was worn like the models I might have liked it. As is this is a fail all the way around.

  • fringebenefit

    OUT. TLo, you have never been more right-on.

  • Kenisha Hill Phillips

    Barely In. Hem is too long.

  • CatherineRhodes


  • subwaycars

    Definitely OUT. That purse is awful and the outfit is really just too heavy on her.

  • The hair does not help…

  • I don’t think it’s that bad, but the proportions are really off.

  • flamingoNW

    Man, that hair is tragic. How can they make such a cute girl look so dowdy? The dress is OUT for all the reasons you said.

  • OUT. Ugly upholstery,

  • out she looks like an ottoman that ODed on too many carrots

  • ballerinawithagun

    Out but trying…Because she went without the midriff exposed (thank goodness) the sweetheart neckline needed to be lowered a bit, this would have brought the proportions into balance. Purse is horrible with this ensemble. Great fabric. This needs lots of bracelets!

  • sweet_potato

    Out, it reminded me of a chair at my mom’s house.

  • butterflysunita

    OUT. I would have voted IN if she hadn’t carried that purse though. The pattern on that dress is so interesting and different, and the clashing pattern on the purse hurts my eyes.

  • I had seatcovers out of that material for my first car (92 Pulsar, and what) because the seats were shredded from the previous owner’s dog.

  • Zippypie

    Ugh. That’s one big ole OUT. She looks like a roll of contact paper.

  • Contralto

    Awful. Very, very much OUT.

  • lizajane1776

    IN! Love it! Love that the top is longer, it looks so much more classy!

  • ccm800

    OUT and blonde IS her. The red makes her look absolutely pedestrian.

  • conniemd

    Out. Hate the hair. This is not her dress and the clutch clashes.

  • LaSylphide

    Out. Way, way out.

  • OUT. It’s hideous and hurting my eyes.

  • With that haircolor? OUT.

  • OUT.

  • rumcg66

    OUT. To the tenth power.

  • This is awful. Just awful. OUT OUT OUT

  • zelavie

    OUT, fo sho.

  • jmorino08

    You are not being too hard on her at all, especially where the hair is concerned. It looks like Nice and Easy was on sale on Target and she was bored with her hair.

  • Anniebet

    Outsies… I’m going blind from all the patterns and busy-ness in that pic.

  • demidaemon

    I don’t actively hate it, as I expected to from the first line, but i get a feeling of ennui from the whole thing. It is also doing weird things to her proportions. Therefore, OUT.

  • carolie_king

    Her makeup is GORGEOUS. And let a young woman have fun with goofy hair shades, even if it clashes with her dress. But still an OUT – I suspect that dress also needs to be moving to not look stiff. It looks like heavy upholstery in its thickness. Girl’s been doing some pushups, though – holy cow.

  • OUT. I like her as a redhead – she looks really pretty here from the neck up. But I hate the dress (I hate it on the model, too), and the purse was a HORRIBLE choice.

  • drdarke

    Would these women stop wearing my Mom’s old coverlets, please?

    She looks stumpy in this outfit, like Bob Hoskins’s impersonation of a fireplug. Oh, and Goochi Gomez called – she wants her leopard print back. I got a soft spot for redheads, though, so I’m okay with the hair….

    OUT – way out.

  • mhleta

    Out. I hate the fabric. Thick, stiff, not enticing at all. It’s a terrible red, especially with her hair.

  • carnush

    It’s the purse. Total Recoil. Ha Ha. OUT.

  • This dress looks like it should be worn by somebody at least twenty years older than her.

  • beebee10

    you are being too hard on her. With the exception of the length, she looks fine. Not great but fine

  • Out. Did they make a commercial version of Michelle and Amanda’s duct-tape look from PR? Not flattering without the new wave quirks.

  • RedRaven617


  • PeggyOC

    No, you’re not I looked at it again and again and while the individual pieces aren’t bad, it just doesn’t work. Out. Sometimes it’s just as basic as “your dress clashes with your hair”.

  • fashionzombie

    OUT. You’re correct in every way.

  • Alyssa

    Out. I understand and respect her for dressing modestly in an industry that typically doesn’t; however, she needs to find a stylist who can help her do it better. She doesn’t ever seem to dress in a flattering way.

  • maggiemaybe

    Out. The purse and dress fabric together is a little seizure inducing…

  • OUT. What TLo said.

  • trisker

    Out. funny comments from the kittens! Agron often picks weird clothes I think.

  • fursa_saida


  • IN. There are more yays than nays here.

    Besides, her makeup is screaming glory. Gorgeous.

  • Iroqhard

    OUT. That skirt is much too long for her wee tiny frame. And the bag does not go. And my hair is bottle red, but I’m not famous, so I can’t afford to get fancy things like “highlights” and “lowlights”. She should spend some of her TV residuals on a much more fabulous red dye job than us normals can afford. You’re worth it, Dianna! Your hair does not have to exactly match your outfit!

  • Out. The skirt looks odd due to the waist issue. I want to fix it, stretching racks are mean.
