Zoe Kravitz at the Chanel Spring 2014 Show

Posted on October 02, 2013

We get and appreciate the attempt to serve up Fashion Bitch. After all, she’s at the Chanel show. What better place to dress all in black and purse your lips constantly, amirite?


Zoe Kravitz attends the Chanel Spring 2014 show in Paris in Chanel.

We do like the dress, but this look overall isn’t working for us. Katy Perry could handle walking down the street in 400 pounds of Chanel, but it’s all a bit much for tiny little Zoe to take. The irony, of course, is that the one thing most people remember about Chanel is that she once said to take one thing off before you leave the house. Would that Miss Zoe had followed that advice.

Can she even lift her right arm?

    It’s Denise playing dress up in Claire’s clothes.

  • RussellH88

    For some reason I keep seeing this is an Olivia Pope outfit.

    Maybe my brain is just Scandal-saturated.

    Either way, to paraphrase Addison DeWitt “You’re too small for that outfit.”

    • Ashley Alvarez

      It’s the neckline. So excited for tomorrow.

    • e jerry powell

      I think that Chanel is still a little old for Olivia Pope. If she’s going to do big-name French, she tends to lean more towards Dior. The cowl-neck would be much more pronounced, as well. Think Armani, but higher.

      Looking at the general dossier, Olivia is more likely to do Italian or American (depending on whether it’s real-time Liv or flashback Liv) than French. The silhouettes are longer and leaner than some Chanel, to my perception.

  • The Children of Lisa Bonet cannot be critiqued on a fashion level. They are exempt. I do not make these rules.

    • Lisa *and* Lenny. It’s a double layer of teflon.

      • julnyes

        I don’t know, considering her pedigree (is it rude talking about another human being like a show pony? probably) I have higher expectations for her red carpet deployments. She won the genetic lottery and I wish she would look better at her public appearances.

      • Rand Ortega

        Right? Fashion Kryptonite.

    • Rhonda Shore

      besides, she looks good…because the dress has an austere look, the accessories balance it.

      • MarissaLG

        Totally agree. I dig this look a lot.

      • ankali

        Ditto. I like the accessories – they edge up the look a bit, keep it from being boring. And I think she can totally handle everything she’s wearing.

        Of course, I also thought Katy Perry the other day looked not so interesting at all, so what do I know?

    • MilaXX

      Cannot wait to see what the children she has with Jason Momoa grow up to look like.

      • He will be the Stallion that mounts the world. (Or filly.)

        • MilaXX

          She has a boy & a girl with Jason.

        • Introspective

          im dirty. cause i read this and thought: wish he was the stallion that mounts introspective alone. damn you lisa bonet and all the fine men you have pulled over the years!!

    • formerlyAnon

      Not so much “cannot be critiqued” as “those attempting to critique are distracted by examination of that face.”

      She really has a combination of features that is much more interesting than pretty, yet can be presented as standard within-the-lines conventional beauty. It’s a fascinating duality.

  • Emily Smith

    Wow she is her father’s child.

    • Beth513

      Now see, I see a lot of her mom in her. Good genes either way. Girl is gorgeous.

      • Emily Smith

        Seriously, talk about winning the genetic lottery.

  • mlle

    No. She looks washed out and none of the pieces in her outfit are playing nice with each other.

    • MilaXX

      She needs foundation or a good BB creme to even out that complexion. The face looks a bit unfinished.

  • Imasewsure

    She looks like a high-fashion bag lady… or maybe a fashion refuge… fleeing war torn Paris with just the “rags” on her back…

  • decormaven

    Wow, I love jewelry, but dayum, that’s a bunch of bangles.

  • no, this look is doing nothing for her beautiful self. but the big question , is her nose running, or is that a piercing? if the former, how embarrassing. if the latter, she might want to do something to clear up the confusion, like a bigger ring or something.

    • mlle

      It looks like a piercing to me.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      I too was thinking.. nose ring or booger?

      • alyce1213

        LOL. I wish it were a booger.

    • kimmeister

      The piercing has the unfortunate look of a snot bubble about to drip.

  • SewingSiren

    I actually think she looks quite elegant, more so at a distance than when looking at the close up details of the outfit. Less junked up than most pictures I’ve seen of Chanel. The bag , however must go.

  • NoveltyRocker

    I don’t know what about any of these Chanel appearances says Chanel besides the chained purses and jewelry.

    • Having now seen the Chanel collection post, that has been perfectly explained.

      • NoveltyRocker

        Having just taken a look myself, WOOF.

        • demidaemon

          Is that a good woof or a bad woof? I haven’t gotten to that post (I am very OCD about my TLo and posts must be read in chronological order), so I need some context.

  • Danielle

    It makes me itchy just looking at it.

  • Shawn EH

    Love the boxy Chanel silhouette, always will. What if she has already taken one thing off?

    • venusvelvet

      I’m thinking the bracelet on the other arm? We can only imagine.

  • MilaXX

    I wish she would lose the bracelets and add a pair of tights or dark hose to this look.

    • tjs

      Agree on the tights….how about gloves instead of the bracelets?

      • jjtxgrrl

        Too early for gloves-no?

  • I actually love the look, from nosering to baggy dress. The shoes are to die for in a weird, clunky way. The rings don’t add anything, but they also don’t distract.
    The only thing I dislike is the bag and the glasses. Take those away and you have a great look on a gorgeous lady.

  • Zoe Kravitz IS Mary Kate and Ashley in The Olsen Story.

  • e jerry powell

    See, I read this as her mother still trying to mix it up 80s-style and missing. There’s just something about it that says “Lisa Bonet trying too hard.”

  • alyce1213

    Too much, WAY too much of a good thing.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    I think this outfit would have looked better on her dad…..

  • That zooms right past matronly and lands squarely on elderly.

  • bellafigura1

    She looks like she’s stifling hot.

  • crash1212

    One of those giant bangles and a different purse would make this perfect to my eye. I think the purse is too small and not the right shape. This needed something with an angle to it, not some little slouchy thing. Love the dress and the shoes.

  • Beverly Kozma

    I love her freckles. So cute.

  • PastryGoddess

    Can we talk about her lack of a decent head game? What is going on up there?

    The rest forget it

  • Tatiana Luján

    Are theese clothes supposed to be on her size?

  • Rand Ortega

    It’s a little heavy, seeing how she’s barely 5ft. The wrist shackles give the look a rocker edge; but she looks divine. I hear she’s dating Chris Pine, much to her father’s chagrin.

  • quiltrx

    Not exactly right with the outfit, but I bet her daddy helped her pick out that huge stack of bracelets. 🙂
    He’s just a few accessories away from “windchime” himself (and I mean this in the best way!).

  • MandyM

    She looks like she needs to wipe her nose. I love a cute nose ring but this is not it.

  • judybrowni

    The one thing she shoulda took off is that monster sweater swallowing her body.

  • H2olovngrl

    She is the black Olsen twin.

  • kathrineb

    This is not how to do over-sized.

  • cocohall

    I love a young girl that doesn’t think she has to do either “twee” or “tart” to get attention. I adore this look, but I’ve always loved the Olsen twins “when we grow up we want to be Miss Havisham” sense of style as well. It has been their look so consistently, that I would disappointed to see them in an outfit that actually shows body contours.

  • jjtxgrrl

    The hair feels odd to me.
