Maisie Williams at Lacoste Store Reopening

Posted on May 29, 2014

Oh, yes. This was just what we needed to blow the cobwebs of cynicism forming in our heads. It’s just so damn … life-affirming to see a teen star who doesn’t care about trends or looking sexy, choosing instead to dress like a total smacked ass, which is exactly how God intended all teens to dress.

Attagirl, Miss Maisie. Here’s what you need to do: Have these pictures printed, seal them in an envelope and write instructions on the outside that you are to wait until your 30th birthday, drink half a bottle of wine, and then open the envelope. Trust us, you’ll have a blast.

    What the hell temperature is it where you are, Maisie?

    Also, I think you’re super talent and you seem like a charming person.

  • hughman

    HS production of “Sweeney Todd”.

    • @Biting Panda

      Love it. My exact reaction was “Baby HBC”.

    • MoHub

      Definitely Angela Lansbury’s Mrs. Lovett ponytail/buns..

  • charlotte

    Did she watch Mad Men and copy Peggy’s presentation preparation hairstyle?

    • The Versatile Chef


  • Danielle

    Brow game is hella strong but holy shit, the rest is killing my soul.

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    Shades of my teen years when I spent a whole (Midwestern) winter wearing shorts and tights (although I wore high-tops instead of boots). She looks adorable! But tell me, the REOPENING of a Lacoste store is a THING??

    • Imasewsure

      Not much of a thing judging from what she was wearing…

      • H2olovngrl

        Maybe the bathrobe she is wearing is made by Lacoste?

    • Fuchsiaforever

      Hahhahaha good point!

    • I wore jorts with tights for the vast majority of my junior year in high school. !!!

  • Glam Dixie

    Smacked ass made me picture something less horrifying than this. This goes beyond smacked ass into some unknown place like maybe twice baked ass.

    • kimmeister

      Maybe it turned the other cheek and got smacked twice?

  • Dany

    You want to know something weird? In real life, She’s only one year younger than her on-screen sister, Sansa. Sophie Turner is 18, and Maisie Williams is 17. Their age difference is the series is quite a bit more significant. Weird how much more like an adult Sophie looks like, right?

  • juniper

    she was great on the youtube channel “superfruit.” but I am obsessed with superfruit so there’s that.

    • Came on here just to say this. Also, Pentatonix (the group which the duo are from) are equally amazing.

      • juniper

        I 100% agree. Who knew there’d be a place to on TLo to talk about PTX!

        • Jeremy

          Superfruit is so fun! Happy to see it mentioned here.

        • I can talk about PTX all day, everyday. On any forum.

  • sk8tfan

    What I find endearing is that she’s so clearly pleased with herself. Looked in the mirror and said “I’m lookin’ FINE”. You go with that girl empowerment, honey.

    • Anna Vasquez

      This is why, in real life (not with celebrities), I can never bring myself to throw shade on people for what they’re wearing on the street if they seem pleased with themselves. I’ll start to think, “Oh girl… you should not be wearing that!” And then think, “No, fuck that. If she looked in the mirror this morning and thought, ‘I’m lookin’ FINE,’ I support that.”

      • smayper

        Excellent point. If pink striped shorts make her so full of delight, who am I to disagree? (little Annie Lennox moment there).

    • BLauD

      Yes! Her face has me totally sold. She’s endearing and I just want to scoop her up and say, “Attagirl. Never lose it!”

      • AnneElliot

        Yes. And her outfit is 1000x better than some of the cracktastic stuff Miley Cyrus wears, so there’s that. She looks like a normal teenager.

        • smayper

          A teenager from Cambridge MA or Berkeley CA.

    • venusvelvet

      My SIL fondly recalls a crazy outfit from the 80’s that her father threatened to take a picture of her wearing as she left the house, and thinking he could go ahead and take that picture b/c she was sure her future self would be impressed with her fashion sense.

      • sk8tfan

        I have a photo of me at about that age with my favorite cousin (he was about ten years older than me) and he’s in jeans and a shirt and I’m in red bell bottoms covered in giant daisies and I remember thinking I looked like a movie star.

  • Frankie Carter

    It’s like she took everything every conservative mother has ever forbidden her teen daughter from wearing and piled it on at once.

    • smayper

      YES, exactly!!

  • The Versatile Chef

    Somewhere, there is a picture of my teen self decked out in Norma Kamali from head to toe, including bright pink harem pants made out of sweatshirt material. And a twee straw hat.

    Dammit, I wish knew where that was.

    • Imasewsure

      Norma Kamali… yes…. Teen Me too … although mine NK essentials veered strongly in to the all-black bat-wing territory

      • The Versatile Chef

        Yes – with HUGE shoulder pads that were Velcroed in for easy removal when it was time for a wash. Snaps or zippers up the front. Peplum. GAH! I wish I had kept those!

        • Imasewsure

          Oh my gawd…yes that was the whole Kamali!! What a look….so funny 🙂

    • I have never heard of Norma Kamali, but at one stage in the early 80s I had harem pants made of grey marl sweatshirt material, and a matching batwing top.

      • The Versatile Chef

        Really? Never heard of Norma Kamali? Her stuff was great, especially if you had curves. And her swimsuits were iconic. Google.

        • Well, I’m not American…

          • The Versatile Chef

            Ah, so that’s it. I guess NK never made it across the Pond. Her stuff was a lot of fun, I can tell you. Very comfortable as well.

    • SallyBowles

      One day after a liquid lunch, I wandered by her store and walked out with a leopard print cat suit. I used to wear the shit out of that thing.
      I know exactly where it is because I refuse to part with it. Just in case.

  • MilaXX

    Yesh! That us fug. At least she’s at the right age to chuck this up to the foolishness of youth.

  • NinjaCate

    I hate this outfit for what it is, but she looks so damned HAPPY that i can’t be mad.

  • Just Me

    But I want the handbag. Badly…like rip it off her arm for my next parking lot stroll badly. I zoomed on it and decided to leave the rest of it to youthful WTFuckery. Good for her for being so brave and liking herself so much! Now hand over the bag.

  • kimmeister

    That is a hairdo that only a teen (or younger) should ever sport, but man that is not a good style for her face shape.

    And the bag! Thrown on top of that crap to give it that high-low mix, apparently.

  • MK03

    The face of the poor shopgirl in the background says it all.

    • Someday Andy Cohen is going to open the vault and she’s going to crawl under her chair.

      What about Gwyneth Paltrow carrying a tray of champagne behind her?

      • MK03

        Her expression just screams “Are you fucking kidding me with this shit?” and I love it.

  • VicD

    Who is this young hobbit?

    • majorbedhead

      Arya Stark on Game of Thrones. She’s fantastic.

  • FibonacciSequins

    I’d like the bag and coat. Maisie will still look like a nutty teenager without them.

  • marlie

    This whole outfit is all sorts of FUG and CRAY, but I love the lack of artifice and affectation on Maisie’s part.

  • Sarah

    I, too, used to wear tights with jean shorts and combat boots. Difference from the early 90’s: Mine were huge and baggy, having been appropriated from Dad’s “weekend clothes.” I am trying to imagine wearing tights AND high-waisted slim-fitting shorts, and all I can think of is that it must be….itchy.

    • KinoEye

      It was itchy. Mine didn’t hit quite so high on the leg, though. But yeah, as soon as I saw the first photo it brought back memories. So many. “Smacked ass” hits the nail on the head.

  • LadyVimes

    Those…those…”shorts”. I can’t.

  • Bexxx

    Not gonna lie, tights, shorts, and docs are my uniform in the spring and fall. Not with a crop top though. Now that I’m in a med program I guess I’ll have to start wearing the lab coat with it just like Maisie here.

  • NMMagpie

    That face just says ” I am on a hit show where I get to kick ass!!” Just as it should be.

  • DesertDweller79

    Ah, TLo, I was thinking the same thing. “How much fun is she going to have in 15 years when she looks at these photos?” Hee hee. As long as she looks happy, then I’m fine with it. You just be yourself, Maisie.

  • …I wore this when I was her age…hey, is this my envelope?!

  • Nancer

    Love this! Totally cute.

  • gabbilevy

    I love her and her character too much to even be mad. You get on with your bad British self, Maisie.

  • a_liking

    You should see some of the outfits I wore as a young teen. more ridiculous than this. I love it.

  • Qitkat

    Picturing my grandmotherly self: Are you sure that’s what you what to wear dear? That top is…cute. Those shorts are…striped. Did your brother loan you those boots? Well, all righty. Such a shame about the run in your tights. Oh, that’s part of the look. Well, all righty then. KissKiss. You go and have fun.

    The generation gap is looming large (some days more so than others), but bless all you sweet young things out there, maybe I will have some of those fancy brownies there, just to calm my nerves a bit. What? They’re legal too 😉 Oh, look Lawrence Welk is on!***

    ***Honest, I’m kidding about LW, that’s my grandmother. She never saw me in my hotpants, probably would have needed a nip of grandpa’s whiskey if she had.

    • formerlyAnon


  • Sort of GROSS…in a styling – fashion sort of way!

  • Valdri8

    “Excuse me, I am Maisie Williams. Can I get my free bag so that I can the fuck out of here, give it to my Mom and go hang out at the doc marten store where maybe they will give me some free shit I can actually use?

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    How old is she?

  • ktr33

    Every teenager should be issued a pair of Doc Martens and be required to wear them for a while before they buy any grown-up lady heels. Builds character.

    • kittentoes

      I never got any. Could I get mine now?

      • ktr33

        DEFinitely. I was a little arrested on the Doc Marten front, like early 20s.

        And then, 20+ years later, I bought a cute grown-up version: Doc Marten lace-up ankle boot with high wedge. You can go straight to that one!

        • kittentoes

          Oh, I want the plain old teen issue air walks. One of my favorite pairs of shoes–patrol boots!

          • ktr33

            Absolutely — let your Doc Marten Freak Flag fly! I have my air walks still, over 20 years old.

  • Rebecca Wilson

    She looks like Any British Teenager. It’s technically summer, but too cold to actually WEAR shorts. And the rest is “I think it’s clean. Maybe.”

    • Lower L

      Black tights and short shorts was pretty much the uniform for the teenage girls I saw in Glasgow last August.

  • thesevenendless

    I have the same Kate Spade bag!!!!!

  • snarkykitten

    Everything about this just screams early 90s

    • kittentoes

      Apparently right on trend.

    • FoxInSocks

      My first thought was “Oh, I had shorts just like that! Only .. the last time around…”

      And now I just feel old. 🙂

  • Kirstin McAulay

    well, she looks like every other teenager that I teach! Actually love that she looks her age and is clearly having fun… though I may mug her for the boots cos my docs just died!!

  • demidaemon

    She reminds me of my cousin, which in this case, is probably a good thing.

  • t bell

    The uncles were right on the money about one thing; no stylists here.

  • Janet B

    My 17 yo says “big deal, I’d wear that”.
    Of course she’s not a professional actress

  • Nice_Shirt

    Finally, a teen actress that dresses like an actual teen girl, not a human Barbie doll.

  • majorbedhead

    She’s Arya Stark. She’s so badass, she’s going to get a pass from me pretty much every time.

    Someone needs to make a buddy comedy with Arya and The Hound, where they just ride around and kill shit.

  • musi_

    This isn’t ok.

  • formerlyAnon

    She’s unbearably adorably cute. I love shoes and hair and eyebrows and hope she’s enjoying the rest and that it makes her feel whatever she wants to feel that day. (With the jacket zipped so all you saw was knees down & neck up, she’d be quite objectively teen-impressive). I note that she is preparing herself for a long and serious career – the purse display technique is perfect.

  • Fuchsiaforever

    This look might be growing on me. Makes me nostalgic for simpler times and my long ago teenage fashion years…..worshiping the altar to Contempo Casuals and Delia’s….devouring the bibles: Seventeen, Paper, and Vogue with my BFF…loving and hating Linda, Cindy, Naomi, Niki, Christy, etc etc….Sniff sniff…. :((((

  • Monica De Leon

    In the words of Jonathan from ‘Gay of Thrones’, Baby Kristen Stewart is serving up some Baby Helena Bonham Carter realness. Loves it!

  • livesarah

    One for her children and grandchildren to look back on and laugh at. Bless her.

  • LibKat

    Even the Faceless Men are frowning at this.

  • Abdullah

    Where is planet earth?!

  • MissusBee

    Love it. Especially as Gwyneth Paltrow appears to be serving drinks in the background.

  • Carleenml

    the black tights under shorts did seem to be everywhere in nyc a couple weeks ago. ah, youth.

    • SallyBowles

      Yeah, I’m in NYC and this exact shorts, tights and Docs combo has been my daughter’s uniform for a few years now. Winter, summer, makes no difference. I raised my eyebrows and gave her the side-eye the first couple of times, but then gave up and went with it.

  • SewingSiren

    LOve it all. Hair and boots most of all. Speaking of sealed envelopes from your past, I just recently scrolled a long time friend’s Facebook page and saw a photo of ME from 1988 going to The World! Chuckles. PS it was labeled with first and last name.

  • MoHub

    A kid who looks like a kid. I’ll take it!

  • Tanya Wade

    This is the kind of girl I want to hang with.

  • veronicafish

    She knew to make sure we saw her bag, though.

  • CassandraMortmain

    Glad to see my fantasy daughter looking so damned happy. And while this look is a mess (those nails – ugh) it’s a charming, teen-appropriate mess. Good for her for looking like a normal teen. I love me some Kiernan Shipka and she does seem to have a fabulous fashion sense but she always seems to be dressed like she’s thirty or forty. Ditto for Hailee Steinfeld. You get on with your bad self, Miss Maisie. Arya Stark can do no wrong.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I’m having a flashback to all those time as a teenager I thought I was looking really cool, and now I look at pictures and realize, I really had no clue. Most likely still don’t.

  • Mothra

    I like her bag! And she’s adorable and genuine. The boots look pretty new, but the tights have a run in them. She should give back her Grammy’s rain jacket though.

  • Kate Andrews

    HA! Maisie, your stockings have a run. — Your Mother

  • SistaT

    I love it. She looks completely crazy and I find that endearing. How refreshing for a teenaged star to look so … teenaged. I like to see the well-dressed young starlets but there’s always something slightly sad about it … they look like grown women. It’s nice to see a young one who continues to dress and look like a young one, with all the fashion ridiculousness that the age calls for. Good on ya, Maisie.

  • Sam Smith

    I am so team Arya, that I love every bit of this, especially the kick butt boots and that smile.

  • BendinIntheWind

    I actually think everything about this is quite cute, except for the shorts. Everything else is working for me.

    And clearly she’s taking her hair tips from Sailor Moon, which I wholeheartedly endorse.

  • Therese Bohn

    She’s happy, kooky, and not trying to be sexy at all, which is how it should be!

  • crash1212

    That face. That hair. Love it all.

  • HeisenbergHattie

    At least she’s not wearing pajama bottoms. For that, I say, “Well done you, Maisie.”.

  • She’s adorable, but I can’t support dark hose with pink and white shorts.

  • rhône

    this would be way way cuter if it were all black/gray. i like the silhouette and the shapes of the individual pieces a lot — might be in the minority here on that, but this is pretty similar to my low-key 90s mall goth style as of late — i just HATE the white jacket and the white and pink shorts with all the black sheer pieces. also, her brow game is on literal fire.

  • I am smiling from ear to ear. So many memories of ridiculous things I wore in high school. Go girl!

  • prisma

    So what happens when you get Maisie (like!) and Kiernan Shipka (like!) in a room together?

  • Lattis

    Love this girl. Hope her character in GoT, Arya, isn’t psychopath by the time she is reunited with the rest of her family. I love the interaction between her character and the Hound – but boy, she is liking stabbing people too much.

  • Those shorts are dire. I love her smile and the goofy hairdo.

  • save_the_hobbit

    Never heard of her before she appeared on an episode of the youtube vloggers Superfruit. She seems really sweet and down to earth!

  • Wut.
