Margot Robbie in Vionnet at the One For The Boys Charity Ball

Posted on June 16, 2014

We love this for being bold and bright and full of summer.

But man, is that shape not working. Gorgeous fabric, pretty great skirt, terrible top. Sorry, girl. Maybe a plain white tank or cami would’ve worked better than this.

We’re glad to see she’s gotten away from the very Barbie hair and makeup she was sporting during the Wolf of Wall Street poledance, but we can’t bring ourselves to say this is an improvement. That hair color isn’t doing a thing for her and her makeup looks really odd to us; like she borrowed someone else’s and it doesn’t quite suit her skin tone or something.

      I sometimes wonder why people choose these kinds of dresses at events where getting photographed in them is basically the whole point. I’m sure that this dress probably looked cool in person but shot from the front it just looks terrible!

      • Wink

        Instead of just trying on the clothes and posing in front of a mirror, they should take photos and look at the photos with a very critical eye. Perhaps then they will see what we see:)

      • demidaemon

        I actually think it’s the profile shot that ruins it. Not that the shot from the front is any great shakes, but that profile shot is really unflattering.

      • P M

        It’s meant to be fashionable, but people don’t realize that without personal style or the fashion actually suiting *you*, fashion is basically irrelevant.

    • Kitten Mittons

      I thought Jaime King had died her hair.

      I agree with everything y’all said, but I’ll throw in that the clutch is awful. Pity, I love that print.

      • Anna

        Clutch is Estee Lauder gift with purchase!

        • Kitten Mittons

          Does Wet n’ Wild have free-gift-with-purchase clutches?

          • Anna

            Possibly this one and a few others we’ve seen on the red carpet lately.

    • moppet

      Do we think it is her posing that is making it swing out that way from the front, or is it purely the cut of the top? It looks like she’s thrusting out her torso (??) I’m just trying to figure out how to apportion the blame. :)

      I like the hair color and makeup; her eyes are beautiful.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        That shape top is supposed to be one of the trends this summer; for me it’s a concept that might have looked good on paper and/or on runway models who don’t have much in the bosom department, but on curvy women it looks awkward. Love the print as a skirt, though.

      • Bad Idea Jeans

        She is totally standing weird. I don’t know why. It’s like a 5 year old who is super-proud of the Superman emblem on his underoos.

        • Glam Dixie

          I couldn’t tell if she was standing weird or if the bell shaped top to the dress was just making it look like she was.

        • Guest

          Nailed it.

        • smayper

          Exactly. I’m not sure if she’s standing that way, or the dress makes it seem as if she is, but it’s that weird belly-out thing that only looks good on the wee ones.

      • ankali

        She looks like she’s holding her breath trying to get rid of the hiccups, and I can’t imagine that the way she’s standing can’t be at least partially responsible.

    • Glam Dixie

      I love that it looks so summery but that’s all of the praise I can muster up. It’s terribly awkward and unflattering.

    • Anna

      Judy Jetson moves to the Del Boca Vista Retirement Community.

      I thought this was Gillian Jacobs at first.

      • demidaemon

        Doesn’t she really love this silhouette? I feel like we have seen Gillian in this shape multiple times in the past few months.

        • Anna

          Yeah, sadly I think we’ve seen a few other ladystars attempt it. The grand total of people who have successfully pulled it off remains at 0.

          • demidaemon

            The true question is: when will they realize this is FMO?

            • Anna

              I don’t even think it’s FMO, more like For No One Period.

            • demidaemon

              You are probably right. i was being too forgiving.

    • sienna elm

      It’s a case of the idea of the dress being much better than the dress itself. It’s interesting in the profile, but also looks like a lampshade. Lampshade should not be a fashion inspiration.

      • minnye

        I think the profile is really cute if she were standing in a field of daisies in Lucky magazine or something. Doesn’t translate well to “real life.”

    • Danielle

      Girl, your roots are painful.

    • sugarkane105

      I have a feeling she’s transitioning her hair back to blonde. This is her in-between color.

    • Grumpy Girl

      The skirt seems wonky too, from the side. The front shot made it look mullety, but the side makes it look like it got twisted around on her and is longer in the front. The fabric is so pretty; the style is such a miss.

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      Spot-on commentary, gents. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen her before, but her face looks weird to me too. And yeah, this latest fad in tops is just ghastly.

    • hughman

      That top takes away her neck and gives her chicken wing shoulders.

    • BLauD

      Completely agree with your commentary, gentlemen. I adore that print, and even the skirt portion despite its confused hemline, but the top. Egads. Her makeup and hair are doing weird things to her face. I’ve only ever seen her in About Time, but it took me a minute to recognize her.

    • kimmeister

      This is about 10x more shape obliterating than Rose Byrne’s silver jumpsuit from last week. That high, straight-across neckline is just not a good option for us broad-shouldered gals. That first picture makes it look like her legs start at her boobs. Not to mention that the hair color and skin color don’t go together, or on her.

    • gabbilevy

      I have total ginger envy but this color is just way too month-old drugstore dye job. C’mon, Margot, you’re rich, young and hot, you can pay someone to do better by your tresses.

      • alyce1213

        I’m pretty sure that’s not out of a box — there are high lights and low lights, but very badly done. I think it’s worse that she paid someone to do such an awful job than if she’d done it herself. Her dark root seam is a whole ‘nother story. Girl needs a better colorist for sure.

      • MaggieMae

        The eyebrow color throws the look off, and brings attention to the roots, don’t you think?

    • Thomas

      I can’t believe how stiff that dress looks.

    • MilaXX

      These weirdly shaped tops seem to be the thing for the summer. I don’t mind it so much. Her foundation looks a bit pancake-y, but otherwise fine.

    • Dagney

      Friends don’t let friends wear trapeze tops. and tire track blush.

    • FibonacciSequins

      It would be super cute if both pieces were less voluminous.

    • Violentcello

      I actually liked the top. It’s the asymmetrical hem that bugs.

    • rainwood1

      Love the fabric, hate what they did with it, have no idea who this is.

    • alyce1213

      Whoever colored her hair should be pilloried. The high- and low-lights are unartfully done, and she’s behind a couple of weeks on her roots.
      I think she looks best blonde.
      The print is pretty, she shape of the top ruins it — should be body skimming.

    • lundibleu

      The print is gorgeous, but what’s with all the really stiff and starchy looking tops recently? We’ve seen a lot more in the last couple of months, with even the goddess Cate trying to make one work, and they just don’t. They look like maternity wear from one angle, and horribly shaped from another.

    • Therese Bohn

      I do love the fabric! I think it would have been lovely as an a-line. The twig heels on her shoes look like they could snap at the lightest touch!

    • t bell

      I think that she looks really cute but not a fan of the uneven hemline thing.

    • snarkykitten

      Sorry, I am completely distracted by the logo. Is it supposed to look so…on point?

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

      VIONNET…..? C’mon…Maybe the “V” line for Target!

    • Lower L

      The top is not only unattractively shaped, it doesn’t fit properly. Look at the wrinkles between the neckline and where her bust starts.

    • marlie

      I love the print. The dress would be better if the fabric wasn’t quite so stiff; I might even like the top as-is if it had a little more movement. I like her hair color better, but her hair itself is in desperate need of some TLC.

    • OffToSeeHim

      I think it would help if she wasn’t arching her back so hard.

    • LadyVimes

      It would have been gorgeous if it didn’t have that horrible boob curtain. Why is that a thing now? It is flattering on NO ONE.

    • quiltrx

      That print is AMAZING. So gorgeous and summery.
      But we are seeing this weird silhouette and its variants WAY too much. Go away.

    • saintebeuve

      I don’t mind the top at all; I kind of like it. It’s not as if we’re supposed to be fooled into the thinking it mimics (or improves) her shape; it’s structured and a bit unusual and it thumbs its nose at formfitting. (Heck, it’s practically prim.) But I think a tank or camisole would be boresville.

    • bailey

      oversized IS a look. i don’t think a lot of men, gay or straight, can understand this, except in person.

    • Trickytrisha

      This woman is NOT a redhead. Weirdly matchy makeup doesn’t help. The skirt is yummy; the top isn’t.

    • MannahattaMamma

      But the bigger question is why a designer thinks that a top designed like an upside-down flower pot is a good idea AT ALL? What person, male or female, says “oh yes, please, I’d like to have that top, the one that flares out across my torso so that I look like a trapezoid.” WTF?

      • livesarah

        It’s the silhouette that makes everyone look like a fashion victim.

    • decormaven

      This hair color is doing her no favors.

    • jilly_d

      It might not be her hair color, but boy, does it complement the dress.

    • Jecca2244

      i wonder if that hair color is a transitional step back to the blonde.

    • suzq

      I like the idea of the top, but not the execution. It’s nice to pair an exuberant top silhouette with a very narrow skirt. Doing both a wide top and a wide skirt is kind of confusing to the eye and makes the wearer look like a Douglas fir. I don’t mind a looser top with that skirt, necessarily, but it needed to be less wide. Also, the straight across line is breaking up the fun print. I would have loved to see something out of the box like cutting out some of the white space and letting the flowers form a free-form scallop design…to flow into the skirt.

    • andreawey

      I say no on the neck skirt…

    • redhead with tattoos

      She looks like she’s holding her breath in every shot. It’s the shape of the top.

    • ktr33

      what a fabulous nursing top that would make!

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Lampshade tops are now a thing?

    • smayper

      I love the fabric and her skin (based on shoulder and arm) looks beautiful against it…but a perfect example of TOO MUCH fabric.
