Krysten Ritter in Emilio Pucci at the “Veronica Mars” Premiere

Posted on March 11, 2014

Krysten Ritter would very much like you to pay attention to her right now.

Krysten Ritter attends the premiere of “Veronica Mars” during the 2014 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas in an Emilio Pucci dress paired with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Brian Atwood ‘Tamara’ sandals.

Emilio Pucci Spring 2014 Collection

She’s not kidding. Eyes on her until she tells you to stop. And she won’t tell you to stop.

Attagirl. Love your dress. Ambivalent about your shoes and leaning towards thinking you need a haircut, but the dress is perf, darling.

    I think it’s a bit too short, but she’s got my attention! Kinda love this…

  • MilaXX

    The shoes disappoint and she needs a trim at the very least. Her look is okay. The sheer bits are as noticeable on her as when Rhianna wore this.

    • tereliz

      God, those shoes. Is it just me or is she standing like her feet are killing her?

    • sojourneryouth

      Yes. Also, why 1947 of all dates? Just seems so random, and would be cuter without it.

      • Lilithcat

        1947 is the year Pucci started the business.

  • TrixieConQueso

    OMG – the closeup of the intricate beading is fabulous! Great girl, great dress!

  • Susan Collier

    I think it looks better without the belt from the runway. Those shoes are fancy by Austin standards.

    • Rhonda Shore

      It’s a really cute look but i think sheer black tights would have rocked it with funkier footwear.

  • @Biting Panda


    Two things.
    1 – I didn’t watch Veronica Mars, I don’t know the actual real life vibe between Krysten and Kristen but there is a pic from this even with them standing beside each other and the tension is palpable. Eeeks. Loved it.
    2- I caught this Krysten on Wendy’s couch. What a terrible interview she is. So scattered, and always futzing with her hair, which was being unruly and parted on the wrong side. It was distracting.

    My only conclusion is she must be just like the character she played on Don’t Trust The B in Apt 23.

    • KinoEye

      Hopefully she’s nothing like her character on Breaking Bad towards the end of her arc, if you’re familiar. Manipulative drug addict — yikes!

    • Jecca2244

      i once read in a manners book that you are never supposed to touch your hair when you are interviewing or conversing with people you arent close with, and as an avid hair toucher i think about that all the time…

      • another_laura

        Words to live by. I just went to a function where a young woman who was supposed to be trying to impress me and other older farts fiddled and flipped her hair constantly. I was totally annoyed because I thought either she’s horribly nervous and can’t control herself or she’s trying to flirt, which either way, ew.

    • marlie

      She’s on my Irrational Celebrity Hate list, despite having never seen any of her shows. This assessment of her isn’t helping any. 😉

  • WendyD

    I just love here and I think she’s rockin’ this dress.

  • Lolo Andre

    Didn’t Kristen Stewart wear this dress for her Marie Claire recent cover ?

    • filmcricket

      Yes, she did. I think I preferred it on her.

      • Lolo Andre

        Thought so and I agree she did it better

  • jw_ny

    cute dress…but really dislike the obnoxious “Pucci” brand plastered across her chest. Designers can be so arrogant (stating the obvious) 😉

    • Ginger

      Oh dang…I didn’t see that. My love for this dress just crashed and burned ever-so-slightly.

      • jw_ny

        At first I only noticed the “uc” because her hair was covering other parts…was wondering what word has “uc” in the middle of it? No! He couldn’t have put THAT word there…lol!

    • Alyssa

      I was too busy trying to determine if I saw nipple, or just beaded nipple, that I completely missed the branding! At least it’s not as obnoxious at Moschino tends to be with theirs.

      • jw_ny

        I didn’t even realize the bust was partly sheer and her nip was bedazzled until I read other posts. Got focused on one distracting item and thus blinded to other obvious ones. :)

    • kimmeister

      I didn’t even notice the Pucci, I was more distracted by the 1947 on her bikini line.

  • Ginger

    LOVE the dress and holy cow that’s a shitload of beading! Well done, girly. I think the shoes work here. Anything more would be too much.

    • kimmeister

      You know it must’ve taken an hour to get her hair untangled from those beads.

  • KinoEye

    Love that dress, but like TLo, I’m not sure the hair is the best choice. Still, I want to run up to her and steal that dress, run off with it and have all kinds of wonderful adventures together.

  • Patrick Cleary

    I was thinking, “nice print!” then I saw it’s beaded and I fell in love.

    • Isabel

      The beads are amazing. However, if the back is beaded, sitting down must be painful.

  • Sarah

    I wish she had colored (red!) shoes. I don’t even like the model’s sandals.

  • filmcricket

    I think if I were her I’d have worn nude undies.

    She looks pretty good (her legs are amazing) but I preferred her hair with the bangs she was rocking a while back. What’s the significance of 1947, does anyone know?

    • Sarah

      1947 is when Pucci’s designs were first featured in Harper’s Bazaar. Beginning of his fame, as it were.

    • MoHub

      At least she is wearing undies.

  • MarissaLG

    Stop relying on that body.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      Damn you, Michelle Visage!

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    I’ve never liked the way she does her makeup (don’t know why, though), but the dress is perfection and she has a slamming body to show it off.

  • Lilah

    Am I seeing nipple? Can’t unsee.

    • Alyssa

      I *think* it’s beaded to look like nipple, but I spent too much time trying to determine that…

      • Lilah

        Heh. I see what you are saying, but I keep going back to the runway version and I’m not seeing it there which has me confused.

        • Alyssa

          Yes, upon further investigation, it appears that we are indeed seeing nipple. Beaded nipple, but still nipple.

  • Pennymac

    1947 fire in the crotchal area. Awkward!

    • MW

      Also something phallic-shaped next to it.

  • marlie

    The dress is ugly, but she’s making it work as best as she can. Also, Attagirl for wearing color on her lips. But stop with the blank stare, mouth half open posing.

    • KinoEye

      Agreed on the posing. The more I look at this dress, the less I like it, especially now that I see the Pucci logo — but the beading/colors are to die for. I’m a sucker for a riot of bright colors.

    • Sarah

      Oh, man yes. She needs to close her mouth (unless she’s smiling). Slack-jawed is not a good look.

    • Alicia

      She’s doing the tongue-behind-the-teeth thing which is supposed to be good for a “stage” smile, but it isn’t working here!

      • marlie

        I had no idea there was such a thing. TLo University, where you learn things.

        • alyce1213

          A friend of mine taught me the Barbara Walters photo smile: Lift chin, gently drop lower jaw into smile.
          I can’t make it work.

      • kimmeister

        Really? It just looks like she is seconds away from drooling.

        • Alicia

          You aren’t actually supposed to see that much tongue!

  • MoHub

    Love the dress and definitely like it better without the belt. Awfully scared of seeing the good china, though.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Love the dress, but the hair pains me. Why is there so much bad hair on red carpets? It’s like an epidemic.

  • sagecreek

    Love the dress but OMG too much hair!

    • Cheryl

      I thought it was too much hair, until I noticed that it hid the branding a bit, and then I wanted more hair.

  • LilyVanessi

    It looks much better without the belt. And does the 1947 in the patter refer to anything…?

    • lobsterlen

      I just asked the same question. Maybe 1947 has something to do with Pucci. The name Pucci is on the dress too.

  • deelup

    The dress is fantastic for her figure. Not seeing any actual elements of her overall style that I like though.

  • Danielle

    Breathe OUT, girlfriend. No one will be mad at you.

  • MW

    … and breathe out!

  • Kitten Mittons

    Someday, I promise myself I will have the opportunity to wear a giant wrestling belt as fashion, and I will NOT turn it down.
    I like the look overall. Not sold on the shoes, but they’re not terrible. I think I want her hair to be up and off the beadwork, which I love.

  • SewingSiren

    Love. love. love. Also so so glad she did NOT wear the belt. Does anyone know the significance of 1947 to the design?

    • lobsterlen

      Figured it out. From Voguepedia: “1947 On brief leave from the Italian Air Force, pilot Emilio Pucci, the
      Marchese di Barsento, is on holiday in Zermatt, Switzerland, when ski
      costumes he designed for himself and a girlfriend—a chic hooded parka
      and streamlined pants—catch the eye of fashion photographer Toni
      Frissell. She snaps his designs and encourages him to work on more.”

      • SewingSiren


    • lobsterlen

      Let me try that again. My comment disappeared. The Pucci brand was founded in 1947 according to Voguepedia.

  • boweryboy

    I can’t. That’s a whole lot of tacky in one dress.

  • formerlyAnon

    I normally don’t like this much pattern, but I’m fascinated by this dress, in a very good way. I’d prefer an inch or inch point five more length. Possibly a half inch ease in the seams, but it might be her hand on the waist and hip slung stance making it look as if it needs a tad of ease.

    I do feel she’s not making all that she could of her coloring – that Snow White hair & skin is not so common in the Celebrity Land of the Blondes, especially not when the hair doesn’t look over-dyed. But I don’t know what I’d want her to do to play it up.

  • 3boysful

    Imagine how heavy this dress must be. She needs a weightier shoe.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    There is so much going on in this dress that I’m not sure what I think about it, but it is a treat to see color on a celeb.

  • lobsterlen

    I wonder what happened in 1947?

    • International Model

      It was a very good year for that general area…I’m guessing.

      • lobsterlen

        1947 was when the Pucci was founded.

        • NurseEllen

          Thanks! I was wondering.

        • alyce1213

          Yes, with ski wear.

  • Granny panties

    Whoa, it’s certainly not short on the muchness. I do think the brightness look cool against her colouring.

  • Trickytrisha

    Amazing dress – I wonder how many hours it took the elves to sew on all those beads. She is stunning and the above mentioned haircut would make her more so.

  • kt

    Thigh gap in see through dresses will make it look like you have an ungroomed lady garden. That said, it is perfect fabric for her. And her character on Veronica Mars is glorious

  • International Model

    This is a dress made of firecrackers. Shalaine Woodley needs to set her compass closer to Krysten Ritter than Unbroken Kindergarten Teacher.

  • Gatto Nero

    Color, beading, no cutouts — check. Nice silhouette. Would have preferred the model’s sandals.
    But overall a good, high-impact look.

  • B_C_J

    Perfect dress for a beautiful young woman.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Thank goodness she didn’t wear the atrocious belt! Love the dress.

  • NurseEllen

    Reminds me of the fake American Indian stuff that little kids used to wear in the ’60s. Sure is eye-catching, though.

  • Akemi

    I’m glad she is not wearing the Heavyweight Championship belt that the model is wearing.

  • Susan Velazquez

    A bit too short and her boobs look squashed but I like what she was going for. I think black heels were the wrong choice. Maybe an electric blue or red peep toe?

  • Qitkat

    I miss my Pucci top from the sixties. It got lost in a move, and I still mourn it.

  • Imasewsure

    I love the dress but not on her. Haven’t seen her hair down like that though. Pretty

  • icm

    Love the dress. You are right about the hair, she should cut it to shoulder length.

  • decormaven

    I’d like to see it with a vintage-inspired stamped leather purse and a heavier shoe so it would have a bit of a Tex-Mex vibe for SXSW.

  • Cheryl

    I thought her hair needed a trim too, until I noticed that all that hair was somewhat disguising the logoing on the chest of the dress. I was already to love this, until I saw the giant PUCCI right across her chest, blechhh, ruined it for me. If I pretend the PUCCI isn’t there I really do like it. I even like the ‘1947’ on the bottom half of the dress, I’m guessing maybe that was when the company was established?

  • ShaoLinKitten

    At least she didn’t wear the World Wrestling Federation championship belt sported by the model. It could have been a cool dress if the beading didn’t spell out words and numbers.

  • JynxTheCat

    Is that a nipple?

    • Gerry Coleman

      I don’t think so, but you can totally see her bush.

  • Danielle

    This dress reminds me of one of those hidden pictures from Highlights magazine.

  • Monabel

    Hot mess.

  • Morales Mike

    If they remake Lost in Space again she could totally play Penny Robinson.

  • Lilithcat

    Mardi Gras Indian sans feathers.

  • Judy_J

    I saw her hanging out at the Broken Spoke here in Austin on Saturday night, and she looked way cuter that night than she does in these photos.

  • peachy

    that dress! gorg! the prince of prints!

  • Boop

    Exquisite. Simply exquisite.

  • Alloy Jane

    Hi Lucy! Love that dress. Hate your shoes. And do something with your hair please.

  • Barb Ray

    Oh holy God, I would cut a bitch for that dress, multiple bitches if necessary, it’s divine.

  • FridaStaire

    I hadn’t even seen the sheer bits! She is so damn pretty…
