Dianna Agron in Marc Jacobs

Posted on June 13, 2013

We’ve long established that what Dianna Agron likes to wear and what we would like to see Dianna Agron wear are very often two entirely different things. It’s been difficult to reach this point, but we’re ready to heal.

In that vein, we’ve gotta say, this really works for us:


‘Glee’ star Dianna Agron attends the New Myspace Launch Event at El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles, California in Marc Jacobs.

Marc Jacobs Floral and Butterfly Print Skirt. Marc Jacobs Sleeveless Blouse. Marc Jacobs Glossed-leather Mary Jane Pump.

Our thing with Dianna is that she’s sometimes prissy to an extreme level, crossing over into granny territory sometimes. We’d never argue that a gal who likes to rock a prim look should hike up her skirt or open her blouse. We just always felt like she wasn’t looking for chic and interesting ways to develop her natural, low-key style. You really can do prim and make it look stylish. This is all working for us on that level. Our only real issue is that the blouse really should be untucked. Oh, and the bag’s kind of disproportionate to the look. But that skirt’s gorgeous.

    Like the skirt. Dislike the styling, especially the shoes.

    • Glammie

      Yeah, I can’t deal with the shoes. It’s a lotta shoe, think it needs to be with something shorter and simpler–a little mini shift, maybe.

      I’d love a good sandal with this outfit and I do appreciate that there’s one starlet from Glee who isn’t going for sex bomb.

  • ailujailuj

    hmm… what stands out to me is the overalls in the background. Doe-see-doe and ’round we go.

    • clairellis

      That was my thought too.

    • quitasarah

      Not just any overalls, overalls with BUTTONS DOWN THE FRONT.

      • formerlyAnon

        Yeah. Overalls only ever work (IMO) because they’re masculine – and you play off of that with contrast to go for wholesome cute or sexy cute. The buttons turn them into girly overalls. That look can’t be saved.

    • rh33

      My thought exactly! I had to check the event — Myspace or My Farm Space?

    • ailujailuj

      dating myself… but back in the day I had 2 pair of Guess overalls – one medium denim and one white-washed. Paired with a pink tank top, skinny sneakers, white cuffed socks, big hoops and permed Madonna hair cycloned into a scrunchy perched a-top the crown – I was bitchen! TLo woulda been proud. Maybe.

      • formerlyAnon

        I didn’t do that style, but I thought my more traditional (i.e. hippie) carpenter’s style overalls worn over barely there camisoles or spaghetti-strapped leotards (with strappy flat leather sandals, doc martins or boys’ sneakers) were sexy as hell. Loved ’em. (They were quite effective, though I was too young to realize it was *me* and not the dreadfully unflattering get-up that was doing the work.)

        • ailujailuj

          you were hot! heh… yes – I loved the strappy leather sandals. had those too. leotards! After the “crazed virgin” phase I slid into the “desperately seeking susan” look – kinda what you’re describing. dunno. sad that I only have one frame of reference – altho she was just everything back then. But I had 1 pr of school bus yellow docs that were stolen. and probably the coolest thing I ever owned! I think that look was sexier too but I was too short to wear docs w/ jeans (or overalls) – I looked like a smurf. so really only wore them with skirts. 🙁

          • formerlyAnon

            Trust me. I was too short for the boots w/ jeans look also, but god help me, that didn’t stop me. (I was well into my 30s before I accepted that it didn’t matter how skinny I got, I was short, was going to stay short, was always going to have hips like a girl and should just move past my denial.)

    • They are “coming back.” I am bereft.

  • BlueBell42

    White shoes. Seriously?? Where are her gays?

    • zenobar

      Not just white shoes. White shoes with heels made of narwhal tusks.

    • mila_8

      Shoes are hiddie

  • PeaceBang

    Wait, why should the blouse be untucked? Also, I think a girl behind her is in overalls and I just can’t.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      Your right and that is the most horrible overall i’ve ever seen. Just look where the buttons begin.

  • SophiaPehawkins

    It looks like she’s playing dress up. Everything looks a little too big.

    I’m digging that lip color, though.

  • MilaXX

    The only think I dislike about this look are the shoes, but I’m not a fan of white shoes in general. At least she looks her age in this.

  • Andrew Schroeder

    If I ever met her I would immediately start interrogating her. “You’re the prettiest girl in Hollywood. WHY DO YOU ALWAYS DRESS LIKE A SAD LIBRARIAN?!?”

  • wonderdivaEtsy

    I particularly detest the heels on the shoes.

  • Maybe it’s just me, but in some of the pictures, I keep looking for the thought bubble that the dots lead to. What’s she thinking? I don’t really like this. It’s okay, but just okay.

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    Those witchy shoes!!! Ugh!!!

  • hughman

    She looks just like my 3rd grade teacher circa 1970.

    • Agreed! Mrs. Meyers, is that you? Here’s my report on WWII. Sorry I’m a week late.

  • Karen Dickerson

    I’m sorry, but I find those shoes completely fugly. Burn them! Burn them now!!

  • lrober03

    I’m happy that her hair is covering that collar flourish. It helps me accept this look.

  • Calista14

    The shoes remind me of the Ferragamo shoes my grandmother wore in the 60’s and 70’s. I think the skirt looks like a home ec project.

  • Jonquil

    Those shoes are cuh-razy.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Oh if that heel was a standard stiletto I may sign off on these white pair of shoes. I love the outfit.

  • I keep thinking that she is the girl in the new Dan Stevens movie. I really like her clutch.

  • I’m really not seeing what you guys are seeing today. I’m seeing Sunday school teacher. I should get some chocolate and decrank or something.

  • I really like this for her. Minus the white shoes, of course.

  • melanie0866

    Seriously? It cuts her in half – the waist of the skirt is too high – and she looks like a substitute teacher. Those white shoes – yikes.

  • Squarah

    Head of the PTA realness.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    My personal experience is that untucking that blouse might create proportion issues (unless she wears a belt). And, the skirt has a very nice wide waistband that’s great for tucking in.

  • Sheneve Butler

    I hate the shoes.

  • amber.

    *stage whisper* those shoes are fuuuuuuugggggllllyyyyy

  • appliquer

    The shoes are just weird.

  • MikeW_Vegas

    I look at Diana here, and I’m still trying to bleach my eyes from seeing what Miley wore, and I’m wondering if they REALLY attended the same party.

  • Kristobel

    That lady behind her in the overalls – OVERALLS, Y’ALL – is killing me. I can’t stop laughing. Anyway, I do not understand why Dianna insists on dressing like a preacher’s wife.

    • Mod_girl

      Ha! Once i saw the overalls (!!), I completely forgot what the rest of this post was even about!

  • jilly_d

    cute makeup, good skirt. those shoes are an absolute abomination.

  • crash1212

    Man, I hate that skirt – fabric should be on a couch…yuck. Hiddy shoes. GAH…I hate all of this. HATE! Not sure why I’m having such a negative visceral reaction to this…but I am. Whatareyagonnado?

  • Headphone Princess

    I made the mistake of clicking on the link for that amazing shirt and..well..
    Can someone lend me some money?

    As a ‘prim’ lady I fully support this look. It’s possible to look prim and not frumpy, but it’s hard to do sometimes!

  • JauntyJohn

    Brava, in that we are far from the borderline “sister-wives” territory we were skirting.

    (See what I did there?)

    Those shoes look like something Witchypoo wore to the H.R. Pufnstuf spring formal. Hiddy.

  • nannypoo

    Wow, I hate it all. And those shoes? Good god.

  • the pointyness and whiteness of her shoes makes my eyes twitch. theyre fine by themselves, but not with this look.
    the skirt is beautiful, tho.

  • stubbornthoughts

    OLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDD. This has Back-to-School Parent Teacher Night 1958 written all over it.

  • demidaemon

    Those shoes are pretty awful. She needed something sleeker. I see the promise here, but I think she, overall, is wearing clothes with too much volume. She can do the granny prints et al, but she needs to sleek and slim it up. Love her lipstick, though.

  • Calinda_L

    A dramatic reenactment, via comment, into my initial reading of this post:
    1. Read “In that vein, we’ve gotta say, this really works for us”
    2. Scroll down.
    3. Me: “Really? Really?! REALLY?? REALLLLLY??!!” in increasingly higher and higher pitch.

    This… doesn’t work for. Not gonna lie, a lot of it has to do with the way she’s holding her purse like a football. Maybe she’s trying to cover up the rest of the outfit?

  • knockknockknockpenny

    Hate the skirt and the shoes. Blouse, hair and makeup are gorgeous.

  • AnnaleighBelle

    God, that face. I don’t know why but I don’t even see what she’s wearing.

  • Pterodactyl111

    I really like those shoes.

  • Casey

    I sincerely dislike everything about this look, from her limp, fried hair to those awful weapons of mass destruction on her feet. No to everything. I admit to being MIA for a while, but I swear the last time I saw a pic of her she didn’t look quite so old and dry facially. What’s happening girl?

  • Gloriana Reginata

    Nothing, nothing could save that print; and its ugliness is only compounded by the styling of the skirt. Her makeup and smile are entrancing, though.

  • ankali

    I’ve never found sleeveless button-down blouses flattering on anyone. I don’t know why. They just look uncomfortable to me.

  • Louise Bryan

    I don’t like the clutch. I do like that the shirt is tucked in, but I think she should have a light jacket over it.

  • Anniebet

    The shoes look like some demented cobbler got drunk and used 3 or 4 different patterns to make those shoes. Horrible doesn’t cover them. She’s cute, like the blouse, find the skirt and bag unwieldy.

  • quiltrx

    Cute skirt. Can’t handle those shoes. Really pointy toes and really boxy big heels do NO go together.

  • formerlyAnon

    Don’t love the shoes – though they might work with something more severe & dramatic. Otherwise, adorable. And I like her hair, here, for a look that is apparently supposed to be fairly casual.

  • marlie

    The skirt is cute enough, and the blouse is inoffensive. But I HATE those shoes. They’re hiddy.

  • Elleachaudaucul

    I wouldn’t go as far as ‘really works.’ Maybe ‘just about works.’ Mixed feelings about the shoes.

  • Andrea Lentz

    I think she is a good example of how to look chic yet conservative. Also bravo to working Marc Jacobs into that sort of look.

  • barbarienne

    The “I’m off to Math class” vibe is not helped by her purse being ring-binder blue.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I don’t know whether to call her farty (thank you, Michael Kors) or say she looks like Doris Day in 1964. Neither is a compliment.

  • anotherkate

    THOSE SHOES. They must be put into a fire.
