Minka Kelly in Sophie Theallet in New York City

Posted on August 07, 2013

Miss Minka wore this gorgeous gown to the premiere of “The Butler,” but we kinda liked the pictures of her wearing it on the street.


Minka Kelly leaves her hotel in New York City in a Sophie Theallet dress paired with Brian Atwood shoes and Irene Neuwirth jewelry.

Sophie Theallet Fall 2013 Collection

It’s a dress that could use a little wind, after all.

Gorgeous print. She looks really pretty. Excellent accessorizing, too. Love the earrings.

      It kinda looks like cockroaches all over her dress.

      • MilaXX

        I saw leaves until you said that

      • filmcricket

        Yup. Blood-soaked roaches.

        Tracy Turnblad 2.0!

      • Lisa Hager

        Ricki Lake in Hairspray realness.

      • Imasewsure

        Kind of appropriate for NY though… “Ode to my first NYC apartment and all of the little critters within”… I like it more now somehow

        • MikeW_Vegas

          It’s a Joe’s Apartment dress

      • formerlyAnon

        Like this dress so much that I’m turning them into waltzing cockroaches, all Disney-fied.

      • rag254

        Maybe she’s seeing Hairspray?

      • VictoriaDiNardo

        I was seeing the shingles virus illustration from those scary vaccine commercials!

      • Louise Bryan

        Cockroaches aren’t quite that round and plummy. They’re more blackish and oblong. I love the print, and the dress and the accessories. Two thumbs up from me.

      • boldprint

        I saw sea turtles!

    • Diego!

      I don’t know who she is, but this is a stunning look! She is and looks gorgeous! It’s simple but very elegant

      • nowlo

        She was on Friday Night Lights. I don’t know what she’s done since the show ended, though.

        • Diego!

          Mmm that show didn’t come to South America, that’s why I don’t know her LOL xD Thank you much for the update! ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • TonyGo

          The ill-advised Charlie’s Angels reboot.

        • alyce1213

          She plays Jackie Kennedy in this movie. Other than that, I don’t know.

        • mlle

          Date Derek Jeter. I think they’re still together?

          • eowyn_of_rohan

            Nope, they broke up about 18 months ago. So he can marry me, obviously.

            • mlle

              Although I can tell you which of his leg muscles have gone wonky since he came back up to the majors, and in what order they did so, I clearly don’t pay enough attention to his personal life.

      • drdarke

        She looks like she’s doing The Stride Of Pride from her Date’s apartment the next morning, @Diego…..

        • Diego!

          LOL xD but then we could guess she had a terrific time, because she looks fantastic! ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • drdarke

            Clearly she did, @Diego! She stayed the night, didn’t she…?

            The reason she’s got her head down is she’s thinking, “CAN I get serious with someone living a no-caffeine lifestyle …? Must – ! Find – ! Starbucks – !”

            • Diego!

              She did indeed, but sometimes things don’t go the way someone expects and you only sleep ๐Ÿ˜› CLEARLY this is not her case! hahaha

      • 3boysful

        I think she also did a guest stint on Parenthood. I think she’s one of the naturally most gorgeous women around.

    • Jeremiah Capacillo

      Wow she’s beautiful.

    • MilaXX

      This is a WERQ for me. I like everything about this look.

    • Danielle

      I’m a hopeless Friday Night Lights fanatic, so I squeed when I saw her name on the header.

      • kayleymaybe

        My hubby & I just started binge watching FNL. Only 4 eps in, but SO GOOD.

        • makeityourself

          Just wait. I ended up marathoning the whole thing during a recent recuperation and it was fantastic.

    • marlie

      This dress looks better on Minka than it does on the model.

    • alyce1213

      Perfect, everything, even the slightly messy ponytail.

    • etselec

      Wish I could see a full shot of the back. Looks like an interesting feature.

    • Tatiana Lujรกn

      The print is lovely, but the upper part of he dress looks like sewn by an amateur.

      • conniemd

        That’s because model is wearing the dress with the strap over her left shoulder and she wore the dress with the strap over the right shoulder. This completely changes the shaping of the bodice, notice it reveals more of the black underlining on the left which is barely visible in the model’s dress.

    • smh4748

      She is a woman of whom you can honestly declare “unfairly gorgeous.” Lucky lady! I like the jewelry here. Simple, and compliments the whole vibe of her outfit–dresses it up just enough.

    • nyazgirl

      I hate. HATE the bodice. It looks poorly made, and very amateur. The thick, dark, single strap is distracting and off-putting…

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      Dress dragging on the ground makes me sad.

    • formerlyAnon

      I love it. LOVE it. And she is pretty and slim and shows it to good advantage. Werq-on-the-street. I know some feel the bodice is wonky, but I just think it’s not supposed to be either fitted or blouson, but just barely draped (that’s what I think I see on the model as well.)

      Also, major props for whomever decreed they wouldn’t ruin the shoulders with a hank of hair.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      LOVE it. It’s so light and flowy. You go right on ahead and let those baby hairs flourish, Minka!

    • Monabel

      Those earrings are insignificant, and look chip.

      • makeityourself

        Irene would be very sad to hear you say that. Professionally speaking, I know her jewelry to be very well made. This just isn’t her best pair.

    • crash1212


    • hellomissmadeline

      Ahhh Lyla Garrity destined to always look gorgeous.

    • Anniebet

      Agree with Uncles except for the earrings. Those look like she bought them at Sears.

      • kimmeister

        They’re almost identical to ones I just bought on clearance at Old Navy for $2.99.

    • Trisha26

      Gorgeous gown & everything else but hair is awful.

    • jmorino08

      The Fug Girls featured her yesterday and no doubt, the dress looks better with movement.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      I love that dress. LOVE. And I thought of horses, not cockroaches . . .

    • CheriCPat

      But that’s what she did with her hair? And, even though the earrings clearly match the dress, those look like the $35 earrings hanging on the spinny thing on the counter at every department store I’ve ever been in. It would have taken so little to take this look to a better place.

    • Lily

      I have those earrings. Not THOSE, obviously, but ones that look exactly like them. I think I got them at Big Lots for super cheap. Excellent.

    • NOLA_gal

      It’s such a pretty dress – I just wish it wasn’t covered with giant flying cockroaches!

      • ShaoLinKitten

        And once you see that, you can’t unsee it… dress ruined for me! :(

    • Contralto

      That is an utterly charming ensemble.

    • librarygrrl64

      Stunning! God, I really love that print!!!
