IN or OUT: Kate Winslet in Narciso Rodriguez at the 2014 “Prix de Diane Longines” Event

Posted on June 16, 2014

It feels like lately, we’ve been resorting to “IN or OUT” because we can’t make up our minds on a look, but that’s definitely not always the case. We have plenty of unified opinions on this look:

And they all boil down to “No.” It’s sharp in a lot of ways, and very flattering, but we can’t get over the idea of pairing a Philip Treacy hat with a Narciso Rodriguez dress. It’s not that either designer is too good for the other; it’s just that stylistically, they’re so far apart that we’re inclined to automatically think of any pairing as a questionable idea. The dress just looks a little too simple and sporty to go with that hat. In fact, the entire top quarter looks like a t-shirt.  We like the dress – and we like the hat, for that matter – but they absolutely don’t go together in any way. You can’t just rely on a B&W color scheme to make a pairing like this work.

But we suspect a lot of y’all are going to defend it into an IN. Like we said, it’s sharp and flattering. The Kittens have been known to be less dogmatic about proper pairings than we tend to be. So here you go, darlings. Defend it. Show your math.

 

 

 

Bitter Kittens make the call:

 

IN! I am now going to outline why you are wrong, T Lo! I prepared handouts.

OUT! You’re so smart, T Lo. Can I touch your hair?

In a development that stunned absolutely no human being with a functioning central nervous system, Zosia Mamet’s 1965 bridesmaid dress was voted OUT.
