Miranda Kerr in David Koma at the Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe Global Debut

Posted on November 20, 2013

We think Kelly O may have won this showdown just for treating it like the silly stage that it is, but Miss Miranda definitely brought her A game to the proceedings:

Unfortunately, she turned around and that was all she wrote. Dye, visible zippers. Die. And that’s not German. Also, that white harness does nothing for the look. Take that away and, from the front at least, this would be killer. As it is, it’s pretty damn good and she certainly accomplished her goal of turning heads and ensuring lots of pictures. Attagirl. Also: here’s an instance of perfect white shoe deployment. Nicely done.

      Thank goodness y’all commented on that harness. I thought you were on board with it, and I was like daaang, that’s for posture correction ONLY.

    • Karen Belgrad

      This dress was inspired by Judy Blume’s “Deenie”

    • Danielle

      Jena Malone, this is how you rock a full brow.

      The harness reminded me of Germany, the colors reminded me of spring, and then the humming of the soundtrack to “The Producers” became necessary.

      • leftcoastpickle

        well, I guess it’s a “Springtime for Hitler” morning now!

    • marlie

      There’s just too much going on. That weird white harness thingy was completely and totally unnecessary, and detracts from the overall look. Without that, I’d be OK with the top and the skirt. But from behind? AGH. NO. Also, we’re doing (visible) zippers that zip up and down the entire garment now?

      • filmcricket

        Not entirely sure it’s not two pieces. I think I can see two zippers there, one for the top and one for the skirt.

        • marlie

          The top and the skirt are two pieces, but each one seems to have a zipper that goes all the way from top to bottom.

          • demidaemon

            Well, she gets points for perfect alignment then, I guess.

    • sagecreek

      I believe this look is called, “eat your heart out, Orlando.”

      • demidaemon

        Or perhaps, “Suck it, Orlando,” with double middle fingers.

        • marlie

          Didn’t SHE cheat on HIM, though? I haven’t been keeping up on my celebrity gossip.

          • demidaemon

            I have no idea. It was just “poof, getting divorced everybody!” and that was it, as far as I know.

    • alyce1213

      FMO dress, and maybe not even with that harness. Pretty color for her.

      • demidaemon

        How does that work, though, when she is a model?

    • DTLAFamilies

      The makeup gun was set on Tammy Faye.

      • madscntst

        And by the looks of it, she was shot twice.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      She looks like an escaped child of Joan Crawford.

    • TropiCarla

      LOVE that skirt. Hate that top.

    • cowper

      Looks a bit like an interior decorator’s mood board, but whatevs. Miranda is always cute and dignified, even when she’s wearing wings.

    • Imasewsure

      Looks pretty damn good to me, exposed zippers and all… don’t even hate the white shoe and that has got to be a first. My fashion “morals” distracted by beauty again…

    • decormaven

      Die, visible zipper, die cannot be said enough. She’s working this look for all it’s worth, though.

    • Alfred Cox

      This look is absolutely gorgeous from the front. The back ruins it however, making it look a little silly and overdone. Overall, the look is solid and she looks stunning and well suited to it. One thing: I hate how she applies her makeup. It always looks so overdone and heavy. From the neck down and not turned around: gorgeous. From the back and the neck up: bleh.

    • lunchcoma

      I liked the dress until I saw the zipper as well. It made it go from awesome to Forever 21 in a second.

      Are white shoes in December a thing now?

    • Clueless_Jock

      Bondage with a keyboard. Kinky!

      Anyone else catch the Simpsons’ reference? Well played, T-Lo.

      • tereliz

        Sideshow Bob episodes are my favorites. :)

    • Latin Buddy

      It isn’t fair. She’s a model. Models don’t count. Models never count.

      • Airkisses

        Was thinking this is a FMO dress. Hence, a model…

    • melanie0866

      Yes, perfectly cute – IF IT WERE EARLY MAY. IT’S NOVEMBER, PEOPLE. CHECK A CALENDAR.

      • GeoDiva

        I was just thinking…. It’s November!

      • Not applicable

        THANK you…

      • tereliz

        She’s Australian, so maybe she got confused…?

    • frannyprof

      Not sure I love the top half, even without the harness. The bandage effect is unflatteringly lumpy.

    • Lori

      Exactly. From the front: “I love this except for that stupid white harness on the top.” From the back, “WTH? Why won’t people stop wrecking otherwise good clothes by putting giant, exposed zippers on them and why is it all hooked together in that weird way? This made more sense as a top and skirt.”

    • MilaXX

      The look is much too summery to really be appreciated while my heat is on and I’m shopping for boots online. That said, the runway version with the white band makes more sense. It helps tie in the white straps a bit better. The exposed zipper in the back is a big fail all around.

    • Irish Rodriguez Reyes

      The dress looks terribly uncomfortable – even for someone as stick-thin as her.

    • MrsDanvers

      damn, if this dress were in my price range, I’d be kicking myself for not being as svelte as the runway model. This may not be everyone’s cup of tea but this is my idea of an update to my favorite look for myself.

    • lesmaha

      That zipper is insane. The designer should be ashamed. Totally ruins the dress.

    • Julie

      One person’s harness is another’s oompa loompa suspenders.

    • boweryboy

      That’s a whole lotta look. It could have benefited if she deployed the white sash the model is wearing. That peek of skin isn’t chic or classy. Plus, I’m in agreement with the white harness thingy.

    • quiltrx

      GAH I am SO tired of exposed zippers! Especially the fact that they’re not only slapping them on cute looks like this, but even on gowns, for Oprah’s sake.
      It’s like if I made a gorgeous quilt and bound it with some cheap, shittily-applied satin blanket binding. Sore thumb.

    • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

      Personally, I find her incredibly annoying, but credit where credit is due–she looks great. Those zippers, however, are so project runway

    • kimmeister

      The white harness is there to know that if you score her, you score a touchdown. (I don’t even watch football and even I can’t not see that.)

    • Janet B

      Yuck. The white harness is very similar to what my son wears when he plays his snare drum.
      Otherwise, I love the pale blue and white combo for Spring. In fact I’m planning on deploying it myself.

    • LaSylphide

      Pretty dress. Why is she strapped in? Are they afraid she’ll escape?

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      i kind of like the white harness over the baby blue criss-cross. it bounces back and forth between chic light bondage and the hills are alive with heidi goat girl. and she is so astonishingly beautiful…she certainly has my attention. i want to see the new jaguar too. my daughter crashed my x-type in july, and i am no longer an owner, but those cars do something to me that’s quite inappropriate to talk about. anyways…

    • JauntyJohn

      Love the bottom.
      Hate the top. It looks like an orthopedic post-surgery recovery harness from the year 2049.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Get rid of the white bandages stem to stern and we’ll talk.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Along with my loathing for sheer over short skirts and granny panties is my complete boredom for the honkin’ big exposed industrial zipper.
      Too bad,as I otherwise would love the skirt.

    • BrooklynBomber

      “Unfortunately, she turned around and that was all she wrote”

      Haha – exactly. I really love it from the front, or would, if it didn’t have the shoulder holster.

    • http://missbethg.wordpress.com Beth Ann

      She looks great from the front, but I’m chilly tonight in California, so I’m not enjoying seeing a spring look right now!

      • judybrowni

        Yup, it’s freaking November, even in Los Angeles.

        • http://missbethg.wordpress.com Beth Ann

          Thank you!

    • MoHub

      The only good thing I can say about the white harness is that allows one to wear a bra. That is all.

    • http://thishotoldbroad.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

      I’d rather see this than Kelly Osbourne. Don’t hate me.

    • Sunraya

      Love the skirt, think that white harness thing is the stupidest thing I have seen on a dress in a long time. What the heck????
