Freida Pinto at the Isabel Marant for H&M Presentation

Posted on October 28, 2013

So apparently the styling directive for this red carpet was “Pick random pieces from the collection and get someone famous to wear as many of them as possible at one time.” Which is really a shame, because just like with January Jones’ ensemble, we’re not sure the pieces here go together or are being shown off to their best advantage.


Freida Pinto attends the Isabel Marant for H&M Presentation at the Tennis Club in Paris.

Isabel Marant for H&M Collection


Keep the top half and pair it with skinny royal blue pants tucked into those boots.

Take the skirt and pair it with an oversized black sweater and pumps in a bright color.

THIS IS NOT HARD, PEOPLE.  The pieces will actually pop more if you pair them well with something outside the collection. Hell, you can probably pull from elsewhere in the H&M catalogue to do the two looks we just came up with on the fly.

        i see the sailboat! took me, like, forever though.

    • MilaXX

      Agreed. A pair of skinny jeans instead of that skirt would have made her look chic instead of like a Clydesdale.

    • Glam Dixie

      No. So much NO.

    • mmebam

      As with January, the moral of this lesson is pick one, but not both.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        Exactly. When in doubt, split ’em up.

    • sagecreek

      I agree with everything the Unks said. Except I added “oh dear God, no”.

    • Eleanorjane

      I actually really like this and the January Jones outfit. Pattern mixing is cool when done well and I just think they work. Love those boots with the tassels too!

      • 3boysful

        I was with you til you got to the boots. 😉

        • MilaXX

          yeah dems some fugly boots

          • demidaemon

            Agreed 1000%!

    • Imasewsure

      I think these celebs don’t know how to wear cheap clothes anymore. That skirt is seriously fugly but might work on a pre-teen

    • amber.

      those boots are so fucking ugly i just can’t

      • Glam Dixie

        Agreed, they have zero redeeming features.

      • random_poster

        They take the entire outfit in a really bad direction.

    • hughman

      “Sexy Incan cheerleader” is the worst Halloween costume ever.

      • Sarah

        Sexy Incan Cheerleader AT THE RODEO you mean.

        • annabelle archer

          Rodeo. Yes. This is the overall take away. OH GOD ARE THEY REMAKING URBAN COWBOY?!?!?

          • hughman

            “Coyote Fugly”.

          • Sarah

            Sweet Jesus I hope not. I hate alla that.

    • kimmeister

      Everything is way too voluminous to all be worn at once.

    • ovarB

      She looks like someone who got a hold of Daddy’s credit card and had a great time at the mall!! Pair her with January Jones and you can now remake “Clueless.” As if!!!

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Boot stank.

    • gabbilevy

      I don’t know why people aren’t paying you two bitches lots of dollars to pick out their outfits for them, but I’m grateful we get you instead.

      • sagecreek

        If I ever become famous (which is unlikely), my first call will be to T-Lo.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      That’s exactly what i thought- “that jacket deserves a great pair of jeans.”

    • Sarah

      She has a better head-suit that JJ so I give her a pass. She’s one gorgeous bitch. Even in hiddy boots.

      • demidaemon

        Yes, that is one thing she has over JJ. Which isn’t much, in this situation.

    • marlie

      Is it wrong that I’m most distracted by the lipstick and how it matches the red-orange of the beads on her jacket *perfectly*?

    • Fordzo

      That plywood is pissing me off.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Girl, that’s not your lipstick.

    • nannypoo

      Sometimes the pieces are just so damn ugly you can’t pair them with anything. This is one of those times. She sure is pretty, though.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      I will never like shorts/short skirt – lots of bare leg – winter boots. I know lots of people are willing to suffer for fashion (I had my moments many moons ago) but that combo will always just look ridiculous. Frozen legs or sweaty feet.

      • annabelle archer

        It will always give me Amanda Jones a la Some Kind of Wonderful.

    • Blair Sylvester

      I could live with the skirt and jacket pairing without the boots. Also i think the collection has leather pants that might go with the jacket and a great pair of shoes

    • sleah_in_norcal

      so far i love this whole collection, whether paired together or separately. i think it’s the various visual textures of the black and white prints playing off the various tactile texture of the fabrics. and the important pops of primary colors.

    • demidaemon

      Those shoes are AWFUL and huge. She looks like if she takes one step they will fling right off.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      I don’t like the skirt, it looks like it’s falling apart.

    • kirkyo

      Dammit! I think she looks super cute.

    • Little_Olive

      What TLo said.

    • Jacob Bowen

      EWWWWW to the boots! And who decided she looked great? She needs CONSISTENT gays because her gays are so off and on.

    • kittenwithaquip

      At my age I have lived through far too many resurgences of fringe*. I just can’t do fringe jackets or boots or anything.

      *This does not include frilly fringe and fripperies– only the Daniel Boone drag that gets trotted out every few years.

      • Trickytrisha

        Indeed. Fringe has much to answer for.

    • Sara__B

      I’m a big fan of her gorgeous smile.

    • kittentoes

      It’s looking very Coldwater Creek to me.

    • MissMariRose

      Isabel Marant’s clothes are just so busy. It’s tiring.

    • quiltrx

      Definitely a one-or-the-other-not-both look.
      And those boots hurt my feelings.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Yes, yes, pick ONE of these pieces as the focal point. As TLo said, is that so hard? These people have stylists, after all.

    • kategs

      royal blue? good lord no. I know there are bits of blue in there but ew no.

    • calimon

      Someone call the ambulance! She looks like a fashion victim!

    • NYCGlamourpuss

    • Aurumgirl

      This is the worst I’ve ever seen her look. Also, those boots…well, I hate ’em.

    • ballerinawithagun

      I’ve always been confused by the love for the outrageously expensive Isabel Marant clothing. The jackets look like old lady Michael’s craft store specials. Just pile everything on.

    • MrsBug

      Those boots are horrible.

    • kim bunchalastnames

      the assessment’s spot on. still … she’s such a beautiful woman, with such a warm and apparently sincere smile. i love that about her.
