We admit, we have a hard time feeling anything Miss Emma wears because she has a real talent for making clothes go drab the minute they hit her skin. But we do like this look. We’re iffy on the pink pumps and we intensely dislike the cut and color of the hair, but the skirt’s so cute we might be talked into ignoring such things. We’re thinking that’s the wrong top to pair with it, though. It’s cropped too high and the black waistband on the skirt is a little distracting because of it. We don’t like the top the model’s wearing, but the shape of it works much better with the skirt.

The longer we look at them the more we think those pink pumps were a mistake. Yellow was the way to go.

    I don’t think its the right tone of brunette for her, but I like her darker than as a blonde… the blonde she typically goes for looker terrible on her.

    Keep the skirt, get yellow pumps and a new top, and a different style for the hair… and it could have been a winner. But I like this better than most of what she wears for certain!

      I didn’t like the blonde either, but this…ain’t good. So now I don’t know what color would be right for her.

      So, my two cents, I think her hair always looks better on her when she wears more natural makeup. When she wears really strong colors on her lips, her eyes disappear. And heavy eye makeup on her looks too heavy and often messy. Looking at pictures of her with a nice honey blonde hair color and natural makeup, she looks pretty and fresh and dewy. Same hair color with bright red lips, and I hate it.

      I think she just has a face that doesn’t take makeup very well (welcome to my world, girl). And when she wears too much, it affects her whole look.

      Perhaps her hair color is the same way? Stay away from more severe colors (really really BLONDE, or dark brunettes) and stick to honey-colored natural hues, maybe a light strawberry blonde.

      I was thinking she could rock a pixie cut, too, and the google tells me she did have one for a brief second earlier this year. I like it, or go back to the straight blunt bob. I really loved that bob.

      That’s way more than two cents.

      • MilaXX

        I think it depends on the MUA. Some days she gets the right person to do her face and it’s really lovely. She needs someone who will make her face up according to her undertones and not based on the dye job du jour or matching the outfit she is wearing.

        • Kitten Mittons

          I think you’re probably right about the MUA, and the undertones. My skin is similar(ish), and I almost never put makeup on to match my outfit. I have found my day-face that works, and my night-face that works, and I stick with it pretty often. And if I have to choose, lips or eyes, eyes almost always win. Strong lips just don’t work on me very often.

          Her skin just looks ashen here, to me. My eyes go right the lips and the shoes, the only color in the outfit, because her skin is so washed out. Is that the wrong type of foundation, then? Meaning, wrong color for her skin tone? I dunno. I think the hair is too dark for her, and maybe that’s washing her out some as well.

          I’m gonna stick to my lip theory, though. More toned down lips, a little color in the cheeks, and lighten the hair a bit.
          It’s puzzling. And annoying. Because she’s so pretty, and she just never reaches her potential.

          • MilaXX

            If I was doing Emma, I would use lip stains on her with a tiny bit of gloss at best. The skin looks too one dimensional. She’s young and a bit of a soft bronzer or dewiness on her checks would give her face more dimension. I’d also give her a teeny bit more color on the eyes. It could be the lighting, but the hair color and the lipstick really aren’t doing her any favors here.

          • Janet B

            Yes, play up those eyes and give her face a little life.

      • PlethoraofBooks

        It may be better if she does an auburn color, like her Aunt Julia. I get the whole… I don’t want to rely on her, want to be known for me… but.. that blonde has been terrible, and this brunette is too dark for her. Or if she went a dark strawberry blonde, I could see that working. I just know that a. she probably doesn’t want to go the auntie Julia hair color and b. doesn’t want to deal with being compared to Emma Stone. But still.. there are colors out there for her, and she is not finding them.

        • Kitten Mittons

          Yes, maybe something with a little red would work. I can understand why she might be hesitant, as you explained. But this is not a good alternative.

        • fursa_saida

          Agreed. She needs a color that isn’t so far out on one spectrum or another.

  • TM

    But, but her hair isn’t that grungy blond! I’ll take it.
    (Also, beyond yes to the yellow.)

  • Mothra

    Those shoes are too big. What is it about ladies and their too big shoes?

  • deelup

    She is an expert at dressing in a way that does absolutely nothing for her.

  • boweryboy

    A crop top on the red carpet is always a no for me. The skirt is adorbable.

    • So how did you feel about Jada’s sports bra yesterday?

      • boweryboy

        Words escaped me. Seriously. I had nothing to say about it.

  • Karen Belgrad

    How awesome would this outfit have been in a rich color, instead of black an white? In my mind, I’ve swapped the black/white for an indigo/white ensemble.

    (But the Barbie heels are tragic either way)

  • jm778426


  • spirit52

    The skirt…nothing else

  • Alyssa

    No to the crop top. I do love the skirt, and I could see yellow pumps working, but I personally love pink shoes, so I like these.

  • NBG

    My problem with the crop top (other than that it exists) is that it doesn’t even fit well. What is up with the armholes?

    Lose it and the shoes. Different top and shoes, raise the hemline a schooch and we may have something here.

    P.S. I know it’s San Diego in July but seriously, why yoga hair? Why?

    • kimmeister

      The top and its armholes look like something out of an 80’s workout video. Not cute.

  • Glam Dixie

    That pink is so wrong, it keeps pulling my eye straight down to her feet and I almost missed how much I hate everything else going on here. Maybe the skirt would be cute on someone else but she is ruining it.

  • teensmom99

    I know it’s unfair but I’d like it on someone else.

  • hughman

    At least she was smart enough not to throw all those Troll Doll scalps around her neck.

    • Tammy_4

      Exactly, she opted not to wrap a Muppet around her shoulders.

  • Kent Roby

    Black roses: did she break up with her boyfriend? The outfit is okay; I’m glad she at least wore the pink shoes (although too big) to give a bit of life to the look.

    • sugarkane105

      Ah, the Rose Motif. If she were wearing blue and green shoes, we’d know it was because he cheated.

      • Kent Roby

        I think the entire world should apply the rules of Mad Style; it would give such clear nonverbal clues as to what someone is going through!

        • sugarkane105

          Today, I am wearing black and white stripes in order to mimic a prison outfit, as I feel chained to my work desk.

          • Kent Roby

            I love it! Well, I’m wearing black, which I suppose is the new orange!

  • @Biting Panda

    Go full on Bad Girl, or go home. The pink was a cop out.

  • Danielle

    I think it’s cute. Not amazing, but it gets a pass. I do like the top on the model better though (minus the muppet fur).

  • MilaXX

    I’m okay with the outfit. It’s the pink shoe I don’t love. I think I’d prefer a sandal. In fat, a yellow sandal might be a nice pop of color. Hate the hair, did she go to the same guy who does Sarah Paulson?

    • mixedupfiles

      Yeah, don’t like pumps here, and I’m already so over the pink and the yellow. How about green for the pop of color?

  • Dino Bonačić


  • Imasewsure

    More casual shoe would have helped – and I actually prefer the model’s top even if it is too matchy… love that skirt…

    • Kitten Mittons

      Yay for casual shoes! Wear a skirt to Comic-Con if you must, but put on some damn sandals or something. Save the pumps for another day.

  • Lori

    The skirt is good, the outfit she put together with it is not.

  • Janet B

    Eek! Not feeling it at all.
    For a blessed moment I forgot who she was.

  • I like the idea of a black top– the model’s top in the same floral print seems a little “de trop” for me. But I agree that the style of this isn’t doing much for her. COMPLETELY agree on the hair; the cut AND color are both so very unflattering. The pepto pumps are very attention pulling but I’m not sure yellow would work, either. I’d have preferred an icy blue or green or lavender. Oh, and shoes that FIT might have been a nice touch, too.

  • FibonacciSequins

    Looks cheap.

  • mixedupfiles

    Hilarious. I wasn’t paying attention to the name, and didn’t recognize her because of the hair color. But as I was scrolling I was thinking: no, no, no, this person’s posture and expression reminds me too much of Emma Roberts to be at all appealing.

  • jilly_d

    Cute skirt. Punchable face.

  • Freynika

    Anything that’s not that dingy blonde is an improvement for her. It cheapened everything she wore. Also, she has really large features, which is why I think more often than not that she looks like a clown when she gets all made up. She definietly has her aunt’s mouth.
    Love the skirt, don’t hate the shoes, abhor the top, clutch is okay… for a clutch. I wish more starlets would carry a real purse and not a trinket box, but I guess that’s what their PR sherpa-people are for.

  • Lisalady161

    I like the pink pumps…just wish they weren’t so big on her. The skirt is adorable, but I don’t like the top or her head. Embrace the Robert’s chestnut hair honey, it’s part of who you are.

  • Gatto Nero

    The skirt is cute.
    Hate the top and the too-big Pepto pumps.

  • LadyVimes

    The wider waistband the model has is much more flattering.

  • Shawn EH

    Very cute for her, and working a couple of trends in a personal way, which she rarely achieves.

    I’m trying to remember her fate on AHS; oh, Frankenstein killed her, right?

  • Sorry, no. It looks half assed.

  • marlie

    I don’t like the pumps, and they’re too big anyway, but I have to admit that Emma looks pretty good. She’s totally channeling Anne Hathaway in the face, though.

  • allj

    Agreed on the pumps. I think she also needed a bold, colorful bracelet.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    I accidentally dyed my hair that color this morning. Cue sad trombone.

  • AndieJay

    At least she’s not showing us her sternum.

  • queeniethebold

    i just don’t understand why she is anyone that anyone else is interested in. This getup does nothing to change that.

  • Athenrein

    I have to default to kind of liking it because the neon fur on the model’s version makes me cringe and sigh with relief that she’s not wearing THAT.

  • suzq

    I like the outfit on the model better– the wide black waistband and the patterned crop top.

  • Sure are a lot of bare tummies at this event.

  • rainwood1

    Emma Roberts is where fashion goes to die, hence the black roses.

  • evave2

    You know, this business with “pop of color” shoes worn with black or white or black AND white clothing just got old here. It’s like there’s no thought anymore. The outfit is cute (I read T/Lo’s comments) but not spectacular. This young lady just never seems to show confidence in what she is wearing and that’s what makes it all not with-it (boy, is that an antedeluvian phrase!).

  • Man Dala

    She looks seriously ill. Like eating-disorder seriously ill.

  • Annistella

    I cant make a clear assessment because she gives me such strong ‘mean girl’ vibes. She puts me on edge.

  • demidaemon

    NOPE. No likey here.

  • musi_

    her shoes look too big for her?

  • Columbinia

    The pink pumps are what I like best. But they gap at the back as if they are sizes too big. Yes, the cropped top should be longer. And okay, I can see that yellow shoes might be better.

  • Snailstsichr

    The higher waistband shown on the model gives the skirt a better proportion and would make so many more options work for a top. Even this one would work better with the original waist.

  • I officially declare the crop top done.

  • Mailbtch

    pink pumps with a red lip? am I the only one this bugs???

  • RescueMe23

    Those shoes!!! I hate this pink, white, yellow trend.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    Why the return of the cropped trapeze top? Was it inevitable?

  • PinkyK

    Hate the hair color and her lips look weird; definite color issues…. The out fit is fine, not great not exactly bad, just fine.

  • Jacob Bowen

    That is definitely not the right crop top for the look, it highlights the waistband of the skirt in a really awkward way.
