Bella Thorne in Blumarine at the 2013 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party

Posted on September 30, 2013

Yikes. Oh honey, no.


Bella Thorne attends the 2013 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party in a Blumarine ensemble paired with Saint Laurent shoes and bag and Jennifer Fisher, Pamela Love, and Wanderlust jewelry.

Blumarine Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Catherine McNeil

We give her serious props for trying to make this work, but it just goes weirdly old lady on her; especially the pants. And we don’t like to impose rules on ladies, but we’re thinking a chain-strap purse is probably not a good idea, hanging off a sheer top like that.

That whole top looks like a temper tantrum.

  • Enormous yes to the pants, but everything else about the styling is wrong for her. Maybe a peep toe or a ballet flat, a black tshirt and that bag without the chain?

    • sagecreek

      Yeah, I love the pants. Would have been so cute with a different top.

  • Anathema_Device

    She needed to pick one piece or the other, then pair it with something solid. You are so right about that shoulder bag. She needs a clutch with this. I don’t hate the top, but the sheer part pulls so badly it looks off.

    • Frank_821

      yes most definitely. Actually is that top long enough on her to be a dress?

      • Erica_Vuitton

        I was just thinking she’s young and tiny enough to have just worn the top part without the pants.

      • Anathema_Device

        Agreed. It is long enough on her to make it work as a dress. Not so much on the model, though. 😉

  • Considering her near constant desire to look like a fifty year old divorcee, I’m not remotely surprised here.

    • demidaemon

      That must be one rich divorcee. Obviously, she made out in the settlement.

  • hughman

    She looks drunk and confused like she’s one step away from setting that purse on the dancefloor and dancing around it while holding her drink.

    • ankali

      I would like to be that drunk and confused right now.

  • Maya

    what is she in? disney stuff?

  • kimmeister

    I actually rather like it, other than the shoulder strap pulling. But yes, it is entirely too mature for a teenager to wear, although I’ll take “too mature but chic” over “skanky ho” any day. Her earrings are very sweet though.

  • MilaXX

    Those chain strap purses always read mature to me. Even though it was shone this way on the runway, it feels like she’s wearing two looks. I think either the pants or the top worn as a mini skirt, but not both.

  • Lattis

    Love those shoes.

  • Garcia Loca

    It worked better on the model because the hemline on the top hit just an inch or two higher, giving it an entirely different feel — more youthful and more proportionate.

  • Slanted & Enchanted

    I love this. Although I’m going to willfully ignore her age in order to do so.

  • Jacquelyn

    Just the pants with a simpler top and easier shoes would have made a world of difference.

  • Imasewsure

    The outfit is beyond me… and beyond this little dear as well

  • Floral peplums have been used as a torture method in the US Army. It’s a fact.

  • leahpapa


  • tereliz

    Just, no. Girlfriend is still a teenager, isn’t she? Where is Alice + Olivia when you need it?

  • Kate4queen

    I’d like it more without the sheer top bit

  • Kara Keenan

    It’s like Tiffany’s mall tour of the 1980’s!

  • Danielle

    Is there such a thing as a scroll-UP fug? Love the pants, hate the rest.

  • Apocalipstick Now Redux

    She stole this outfit from the closet of Cloris Leachman.

  • jw_ny

    that outfit should only be worn as separates!

  • Dagney

    Well, I like it.

  • melanie0866

    Were sheer bodices required at this event?

  • Rachael

    I need those shoes, but the outfit is horrendous! I agree with most of the other posters, that this would be fine if she chose one piece or the other and matched it with something solid colored. Right now she looks like she’s going trick-or-treating as Sophia from Golden Girls!

  • amber.

    send this to JLaw.

  • Scoop

    Remove the sheer yoke / sleeve situation on the bodice and you might have something. Wear the printed bit as a bustier over black trousers, keep the shoes but ditch the shoulder bag and carry a chic slouchy oversized clutch instead and you’re in business!

  • SuziQue

    On her show “Shake It Up” Disney dresses her well…and I think she wants to be a “serious” fashionista. I don’t see joy or experimentation in what she puts on. She is completely opposite to stars like Miley, Rhinna and so forth who seem to want to approximate street to show themselves as fashionistas. Bella is going the Anna Wintour path…but alas…she is no Wintour.

  • LaSylphide

    Pretty fabric badly used.

  • WittyCism

    Ballsy gal to try. But it should’ve been tailored to fit like the model’s: tighter, shorter in the pants, a bit shorter for the blouse. Would’ve been cute for a party/premier in an Asian city. Horrid shoes though.

  • decormaven

    Her style team obviously has access to designer duds, but consistently makes less than winning choices. Get better stylists, dear. Props to your MUA, though- that lipstick shade is a good choice.

  • kmk05

    The hair is awful, the bottom part of the top is awful, and the sheer t-shirt is awful, all because SHE IS FIFTEEN. She looks like she’s 35! She has a mature face, but there’s no reason to dress like this, for crying out loud. I can’t with her.

  • oohsparkley!

    I mostly love it. I’d get rid of the sheer and maybe a differenct purse. Her shoes are better than the model’s.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I give her props for trying to make that look work. And I too love those pants!

  • Bella’s not a regular mom, she’s a cool mom.

  • Violentcello

    I started scrolling down thinking, “What’s wrong with that? It’s a cute dre–oh. Pants.”

    One or the other, says I. Skorts were functional when I was in third grade, but skants are too much.

  • Jennifer Bober

    These pieces so needed to be split up. Either would have worked with the other piece being plain black and a shoe that had some color.
