IN or OUT: Florence Welch in Prada

Posted on May 01, 2013

Love this.

Florence Welch attends Catherine Martin And Miuccia Prada Gatsby Exhibition Opening Cocktail in New York City in Prada.

Who cares if she looks like the third member of Milli Vanilli? This suits her to a T. The rings are probably a bit much, but she needed some rocker-chick edge and we don’t mind them. They go with the hat. Otherwise, she’d veer close to “lady lawyer” in this getup.

IN! Girl, you know it’s true!


OUT! Blame it on the rain.




The Minions with Opinions had way too many issues with Kelly Osbourne’s slutty ice-dancer dress, voting it OUT.

      In! So very in.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      IN. I love this, but I don’t like the shoes… I think she could have funked them up a bit.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Love this!!!!! In! It’s so rare to see her pared down a sharp looking. More please, Flo!

      • Sobaika

        I don’t exactly love it, but I’m thrilled she’s not wearing another wispy floor-length boho maxi with a flower crown on her head.

        • Kiltdntiltd


        • MilaXX

          Hard to believe her, Adele & Taylor Swift are pretty much contemporaries

      • drdarke

        IN – it looks sharp and cool, and even the mannish shoes go with the look.

    • Tadiana

      Lady lawyers (at least in my area) don’t wear open shirts quite like with their black suits either, although I might venture to say that the practice of law would be improved if we did.

      And this is a solid IN.

    • TDSE

      IN. Love it.

      Also, her song for the Gatsby movie, Over the Lover, is fabulous and been playing on repeat all week for me.

    • skitzfiggitous

      I would love to see this against a different backdrop to avoid the whole floating face-hands-bib puppet routine, but what my strained eyes can discern are pleased.

    • foodycatAlicia

      IN for the healing power of accessories. I think the hat is a step too far (Lisa Bonet in the Cosby show) but I love the rings.

    • Stella Zawistowski


    • Chartreusite

      in. positively minimalist for her and very easy breezy. luv huh.

    • another_laura

      Looks sharp and the rings are great, for her. IN

    • hughman

      Channeling Patti Smith.

    • TheAmericaness


      and curse you TLo for getting Blame It on the Rain earworming through my head. you hate me.

    • Lori

      In. I like this and it definitely works much better for her than a lot of the stuff she’s worn in the past.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      IN. Slouch-fabulous.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      IN. But the Al Bundy posing is not working.

    • Aly Light

      No complaints! And I usually hate her outfits. This is sharp and witty. IN.

    • lobsterlen

      Totally IN!!!

      The black background is not helping. The details are lost.

    • Sara Brams-Miller


    • AnniNoone

      She’s killin’ it. IN.

    • alaskahyoung

      Oh, love this (minus the shoes)! IN.

    • kayleymaybe

      As a redheaded lady lawyer, I would totally wear this to work without the hat and rings! Of course, that’s not a ringing endorsement for an outfit for a rockstar…but I’d still call it an IN.

    • Jackie Atkins

      IN! She kept her edge but toned down the cray cray.

    • MinaBinaXina

      Girl, you know it’s true. She’s in.

    • Le_Sigh

      IN! Although I couldn’t see the hat at first, it blends into the background.

    • beebee10

      IN IN iN!!! she knocks it out!

    • MRC210

      IN. Hate the red talon-y nails, though.

    • Caterina Maria

      In! Florence is still Florence, with a little added chic.

    • MyrtleUrkel

      Girl, you know it’s true!

    • Nikko Viquiera

      IN because she looks her age!!!

    • PinkySlinky

      IN- she looks good

    • zenobar

      IN. Love that gurl.

    • Sunshine16

      In, she looks more relaxed & refreshed than she has in awhile!

    • stagmania


    • NurseEllen

      A solid, fabulous IN. Yay for Flo!

    • stubbornthoughts

      Absolutely IN.

    • Sarah

      IN, says the lady with all but her pinkies and pointers ring-free, jewelry rebellion being all that’s left for a person in this adult life…

    • Emily Smith

      In but what is with the talon like nails the lady stars are sporting lately. my goodness.

    • jw_ny

      I’m disappointed that there isn’t more Flo flare to it, but it’s an IN anyway.

    • crash1212

      IN. Love it.

    • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

      Totally IN. I was wishing for a stronger lip maybe, but she looks fantastic.
      A WERQ for me.

    • Deitra S.

      With a wisp of a smile, even? IN, IN, IN! Love it!

    • acevedob

      IN! Girl, you know it’s true!

    • MilaXX

      IN! The most youthful thing I’ve seen her wear since she hit it big in the states

    • barbarienne

      Who can tell? She’s wearing black against a black background. What I can see is IN, so I’ll go with that

    • MilaXX

      Is it me or does this movie look awful? I’m a Baz L fan, but I get the feeling this is gonna thud

      • Tom and Lorenzo

        Saw the trailer in the theater a couple weeks back and it looks like a big, loud mess.

      • tereliz

        My sentiments exactly.

      • kathrineb

        Yes. I feel like Baz L’s films and really hit and miss eg: Romeo and Juliet was amazing and Australia was just embarrassingly bad… but then I also really disliked Moulin Rouge and most people loved it.

    • random_poster


    • RebeccaKW

      In. She looks great. Good ladypants. She’s a cool rock chick, so she can wear 5 rings on each finger if she wants.

    • tereliz

      Still shaking my head at the Milli Vanilli reference, but yeah, Flo looks pretty good here. Dig the hat.

    • marlie

      LOVE IT. **IN**

    • thecitysleeps

      IN IN IN IN. Now this is how you wear some kick ass Prada. My only quirk is that the shoes look as if they’re dirty which I’m sure is just an effect.

      I’d kill to look like that as a lady lawyer, hat or no hat!

    • Sally Brownson

      In. Love it.

    • ringthing

      Love it. IN.

    • Rhonda Shore

      IN! It’s refreshing to see her in classic black and white rather than those Laura Nyro-type flowery dresses and stuff.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      If this isn’t a ‘Rocker Girl’ outfit, nothing is! That said, her makeup is a little too neutral and her hair looks like it’s pouting.

    • Gaby

      In, but this really is my work uniform (I love hats and I wear only slightly less bling on my hands during the day). Also, fuck that backdrop – I had to scroll up to notice she was wearing a hat after you guys mentioned it. That backdrop is eating all the light.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yup. I had to go elsewhere online to see the hat.

    • Cathy S

      I love it. In.

    • Patricia Biswanger


    • Kimmu

      For a second, I thought she had a TARDIS tattoo and then I realized it’s probably a birdcage. The TARDIS would have been cooler.

      Love the hat

    • Synnamin

      In! Woo, woo, woo, I love you

    • Patricia Gillett


    • Jangle57

      Oh I like this; think the shoes (what you can see of them) look great. IN

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      IN. It’s perfectly her.

    • fringebenefit


    • Rebekah B

      I see no problem with this. IN.

    • Deborah Lipp

      In! Such a nice change for her, too.

    • Tatiana Luján


    • Eclectic Mayhem

      In, in, IN!

    • Judy P

      Is it just me or does she have a Tardis tattooed on her finger?

      • Trisha26

        It’s a birdcage – does look like a Tardis though!

    • Trisha26

      IN! Love the long jacket! And the hat and the rings!

    • butterflysunita

      Love. IN.

    • Qitkat

      I’m bored. Out.
      I guess I’m alone in the corner though.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      IN. I love it when she wears suits. And take notice Salma Hayek, even this rocker chick can get her pants hemmed properly.

    • Julie Chase

      In! Except I want to tackle her to the floor and file her nails.

      • judybrowni

        Hate, hate, hate the Vampira nails!

    • MissAnnieRN

      IN! Saw these this am and this is a werq for me. Love it.

    • Fatima Siddique

      In. It’s totally her, but in an interesting new way.

    • trisker

      LOVE this! IN.

    • ilikemints

      I can’t even decide if it’s OUT or IN… maybe it’s my monitor, but I can barely see the suit at all. It’s just a vague, black, suit-shaped void to me.

      Her makeup is pretty, though.

    • Nicholas Jude Paganelli

      In. Also, I couldn’t even see a hat until I read the word hat and went back. Huh.

    • Sara__B

      IN. She looks happy! Friendly! Approachable! Healthy!

    • Kristel

      She looks good – In, for sure.

    • Jarethee

      She looks INCREDIBLE. In!

    • teensmom99

      In. Florence Welch in Prada is always in.

    • demidaemon

      IN. This is perfectly pared down and her, style-wise.

    • LaSylphide

      In. Big, big in.

    • conniemd

      In. The clothes fit her so well. Too bad the background was black, though.

    • Heather

      IN but for the horror of those nails. Please, let the sharpened talons go away!

    • Nicole Little

      In! She looks hot!

    • aykhan

      IN – this look is perfect for her!

    • CatherineRhodes

      She’s wearing Prada, and this is the best she could do? OUT

    • Shannon Long

      IN! She looks classic and comfy and confident and that’s always a win in my book.

    • Meg Smitherman

      So in! She looks amazing.

    • Barbora

      IN! I also like her manicure and rings plus tattoo on finger.

    • formerlyAnon

      IN! The shirt’s underwhelming me a tad (I’d have had her go either more romantic-mod, with a jabot or at least a high collar and a bunch of pearl buttons, or more severely geometric at the neck, not the loose sports shirt feel she’s doing), but if I were dressing her she’d work a more androgynous vibe more often. Not masculine at all, but more of a genders-in-a-blender mix.

    • alyce1213

      In. Understated, classy, perfect fit. She needs a back light — I wish I could get a better look at her hat.

    • MandyM

      J’adore! IN IN IN!

    • GTrain


    • Anniebet

    • stellamaris73

      In. Love me a lady-suit. This suits her so much better than the hippie baglady caftans she so often sports.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      In…love the rings, wish the hat were smaller.

    • Eljay Bernardo

      IN! Glad to see flo not in her uniform. :)

      • formerlyAnon

        Hair, gaze and strong-rather-than-pretty-pretty bones.

    • patticake1601

      OMG IN

    • breathlss79


    • kathrineb

      A tentative IN… It’s not a very interesting look (especially for her) but I guess it’s her style.

    • bellafigura1

      Very IN. You are right, totally suits her — much better than her usual costumes.

    • Judy_S

      In. If lawyers looked like this, I might hire one.

      In, but some color on the face would have been nice.

    • raininmai

      Does anyone else think she looks a bit like Chloe Sevigny? Hmm.. The rings are a nice touch. This is an IN for me.

    • Jonquil

      It’s very ’70s Bob Dylan. But with a killer manicure. In!

    • Heather Waddell

      The only problem here is the step and repeat. Flo is flawless.
