Keri Russell Style Double Shot

Posted on July 09, 2014

Miss Lady is rocking the hell out of the ladypants. So much so, that we don’t even mind the almost total lack of color or the fact that both outfits are roughly similar.

That’s just plain chic. No matter who was wearing it, an outfit like this would turn our heads. It’s cool, creamy, and looks effortless (in a skin-tight pants and 4-inch heels kinda way).

She transforms into something else at night:

It’s a shame about the crotch flap, because aside from that one detail, this is crazy-hot. Could’ve done without the meth hair too, but it doesn’t matter. She’s working the shit out of this look. She knows how to rock a kickass mule, too. You don’t see mules on the RC all that much. Why is that? Too much risk of falling out of them?

    I really like the hair(and the make-up) with the black outfit!

    • Lilah

      I’m living for her hair in the black outfit!

    • ohhoneyhank

      The purple really brightens the green in her eyes. It’s gorgeous.

  • Sarah

    Mules with CLEAR INSTEP LOOPS. Argh. I dislike that. I can’t even see it very well, but I know it’s there, and therefore, hate it. She looks great, though. Really chic.

    • Faux mule.

      • Sarah

        Spurious slip-on!

      • kimmeister

        Mules just have to be backless, right? So they’re still mules.

        • Sarah

          True, true. The main point is they be closed-toe – if not, it’s a slide.

    • Paigealicious

      Hate the loop too! Looks like tape!

    • colleenjanel

      I figured there had to be something clear. There’s no way that someone could walk in mule stilettos like that without clear loops.

      • Sarah

        That’s why I looked at ’em so hard. I thought the same thing – like she had magical sticky feet, but then the sole-sweat fogging up the left foot in pic #4 gave it away. Ew. Foot fog.

        • I was wondering how she kept those shoes on her feet. Then I saw the plastic straps (EW!) across the tops of her feet. Then I wondered what was that weird colored spot on the inside of her left foot, and why a designer would put a spot of “color” on that part of the shoe. Then you told me it was foot fog. These shoes have traumatized me for the minute it took me to think all this!

        • Tlazolteotl

          Huh. I looked at the same picture and saw a band-aid. Not because it looks like a band-aid, but because I have a thing about imagining stepping on nails and puncturing the bottoms of my feet.

          • @Biting Panda

            When I was a kid, I stepped on the raised screw doo dad, on the wheel of my baby brother’s walk around thing, all wee toddlers love. To this stay, I can still feel the stabbing pain in the arch of my left foot. True story.

          • quiltrx

            I saw Band-Aid too, then I saw the shadow of the plastic…gross, foot-fog indeed.

    • Yes. Exactly. Both pairs have the plastic but I guess they are technically still mules. Whatever.

  • Rhonda Shore


  • mshesterp

    Is it a mule or do they have a plastic piece across the in-step? Oddly, I don’t mind it. They look like the same shoes in different colors. Still, she’s smoking.

    I LOVE her in the Americans (just catching up on season 2), she and Matthew Rhys are crazy hot together, and I have no doubt they bring home that crazy chemistry off screen. Man, it’s light years away from Felicity.

    • Jennifer Bober

      I can see the sheen of the plastic across the bridge. I think you’re right about them being the same in different colors.

  • hughman

    If Heidi Klum and Cheryl Tiegs had a daughter.

    • decormaven

      Truly. She’s a ringer for early Cheryl Tiegs in the first shot.

    • @Biting Panda

      With a little Vicky Posh on the family tree.

  • Kristen

    Yes, the crotch flap is unfortunate, but the eye makeup alone it a werq moment. DAMN GURL

  • susan6

    Both of those pairs of mules have a clear plastic piece going over the top of her foot. So….pseudo-mules? On the one hand, they keep her from sliding out of the shoes. On the other….chafy and stank foot. Pretty sure you can see condensation on the inside of the plastic in the last white outfit pic.

    Other than that…she looks pretty cool. Takes a lot of guts and zero percent body fat to wear jeggings.

    • MilaXX

      I think it still counts as a mule because there’s no strap around the back of the foot or ankle.

  • Alyssa

    Love the daytime look, except for the plastic shoes. So glad to see lipstick! And she does look smoking in the second look, even if I don’t really like any of the pieces. She must really love those plastic shoes, to have two pairs in different colors!

  • decormaven

    The p.m. look is one of her personal bests. Love the eye makeup on her in that shot.

  • SuzyQuzey

    The white top just looks so Golden Girls to me.

    • kimmeister

      It is a rather “chaise longue” print, albeit sheer.

  • marlie

    Other than the crotch-flap, I love both looks. And I don’t care about the plastic band… I LOVE those shoes.

    • Alyssa

      I’m glad to see shoes that aren’t a) naked, b) nude, or c) suede!

    • Sarah

      She’s making them work like I never thought a clear foot loop could. They do look good on her feet.

    • AlisonHendryx

      I also love the shoes and really really really want the pink ones. and I have had it drilled into my head since I was old enough to walk by dear old Mum that we Only. Wear. Leather. But the pink plastic mules are sooooooo hot.

      • marlie

        I think the pink part is actually leather, and the clear part is the only plastic, but either way, those shoes are super cute.

  • MilaXX

    Love both these looks. She’s the first person to make me like those plastic strap shoes. That second outfit is all kinds of badass! I even like the tricky pant.

  • Joanna

    I need those shoes! She looks fantastic in both outfits, even with the crotch flap.

  • mjude

    love the looks & I forgive the crotch flap.

  • Lilah

    I’m ok with the crotch flap. It gives the look a little punk ass. She is fucking rocking it.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    I’d fence-jump that.

  • Kent Roby

    I love sultry Night Keri! Also, I’m really excited about seeing this film; I have tons of friends who worked on it, and I drove by the main set for months.

  • Shawn EH

    This is like Samantha and Serena up in here! Love both looks!

  • carrie

    Man, who knew?

  • imspinningaround

    Oooooh those Jimmy Choos with the plastic strap…I die for them. Like a sexy mule from the Blade Runner future.

  • Denise Alden

    That man in the way too long teal polo is hilarious! “Who the hell is this? Why are they taking her picture? Where’s my wallet?”

  • Emily S

    she looks fantastic. both looka.

  • PastryGoddess

    Ok question, with the white outfit, how can I see her stomach but not her nipples? Not that I want to see her nipples? I mean there’s nothing wrong with nipples, but you should really only show them off to people you really like, or your OB/Gyn, or pet ferret. What was I saying…oh right, is this just the magic of photoshop or is she tragically nipple-less. That backstory would be great.

    • MilaXX

      My guess is either a really good invisible half lining or the perfect nude bra. I’m leaning towards perfect nude bra.

      • PastryGoddess

        That is an amazing bra. I’m pretty sure I’m jealous

    • TwiddlyStun

      Ahhh, the PastryGoddess who asks the questions mere mortals were afraid to ask! Thanks!

  • smh4748

    She is just killing it lately.

  • Yoshio

    I don’t read chic on that first look at all. The top is matronly and while the pants are fine, the combo is just dull and ordinary at best. The second look, now that’s hot.

  • kimmeister

    The backs of her thighs in those sprayed-on white pants, how they mock me with their smoothness. I love the hair and makeup in the 2nd look, but am not down with that outfit for a movie premiere. I’m not against lady pants at all, I just think this is not the right venue for this look.

  • Gatto Nero

    Both pairs of mules appear to have a clear plastic — strappy something — that wraps around the foot. (Unless I’m hallucinating, which is entirely possible at this hour of the day.) Otherwise, i don’t see how she can possibly keep from falling out of them.

    • crash1212

      Nope. No hallucinating for you. I saw it too. At first I thought…tacky. But the more I look, the more I like and it makes total sense.

  • CB

    Girlfriend is aging like a fine wine.

  • crash1212

    Her head in that last outfit is perfect.

  • KT

    LOOVVVVEEE both looks. Love love love. I am seriously coveting of everything on display here. She looks great full stop — I don’t mind the crotch flap and I actually think her hair looks great. WERQ it morning and night, girl!

  • EditKitten

    Her makeup is flawless in the second look. Makes it all work.

  • MerBearStare

    Michael Kors voice: The crotch on those pants is insane!

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I just posted the exact same thing, then deleted it because… you got there 14 minutes before me!

  • Danielle

    I even love the JBF hair.

  • Guest

    My second Michael Kors channeling today: The crotch on those black pants is INSANE.

  • TwiddlyStun

    I totally got an “older Anna Kendrick” from the latter set of pictures.

  • what not

    Love the makeup on the second look. It’s not always appropriate, but here it looks low-effort and rock-star-y. Good for her.

  • dash1211

    After the earlier Gaga travesty, this woman is a breath of fresh, stylish air.

  • SugarSnap108

    Love both outfits — Oddly, I don’t even mind the crotch flap. But I don’t like her makeup with the first look at all.

  • demidaemon

    First look: Chic. Like.

    Second look” Pants and hair ruin it. HATE the pants.

  • Henry Maler

    These two outfits make her look like she’s playing an uptight staight-A Yalie and her black sheep twin who- *gasp* smokes CIGARETTES! – in an 80’s tv movie.

    Regardless, she looks great here.

  • fursa_saida

    I don’t know why we don’t see mules on the red carpet, but I pray to heaven it stays that way. I hates them, precious. (Slides, too. They can all go straight into Mount Doom.)

    ETA: Possibly this raw hatred is fueled by having to wear lots of them in 2000-01 (when they were trendy I guess) when I was like thirteen and going to eight hundred thousand Bat Mitzvahs.

  • nicky

    I so appreciate a moderately endowed star, who doesn’t feel the need for implants. She can do no wrong, in my opinion.

  • holla

    the crotch flap is making that hot-look a coked out look.

  • FibonacciSequins

    I like Look Deux better, minus the weird flap. The sleeves on the white shirt are bugging me.

  • mousetomato

    She’s just a great combo of girl next door/drop dead sexy.

  • Erica

    I love a good mule. It’s really hard to find them these days–and I’ve spent some time trying. She does look very chic pretty much always.

  • elemspbee

    it looks like there’s a bit more support for these mules. There’s a clear plastic across the midfoot that surely makes it easier to wear so it’s not on the verge of flying off.

  • TinyDynamo

    Simple, refined, and chic as hell. DAMN.

  • quiltrx

    It would help a lot if she were selling the look in the black outfit. As it is, she kind of looks embarrassed to be there.
    I really (surprising myself) like that white top.

  • MartyBellerMask

    HOT. This woman has gotten better and better with age. Can’t hate.

  • Corinne Bourgoin

    As someone who lives in Hawaii, all I can see with the first top is Tutu’s bedspread. Sorry.

  • Jeannie Shmina Greenwald

    I think she’s perfection in both styles – day and night. She knows her body and what works for her, and she hits the right note across the board. Love her in The Americans, and love her style, here.

  • Radish

    I’m actually obsessed with her hair [and makeup] in the second look.

  • Anne

    I appreciate that she seems to have a band-aid on her foot in the first picture. Even stars get blisters!

    • Anne

      Aw, never mind. Not a band-aid, apparently.

  • empath

    she looks gorgeous in both looks, but is there a time warp? she looks 10 years older in the day look (about 35) than the night look (about 25).

  • KES4K

    That second outfit is what I aspire to on date night with my husband (with a slightly less see-through top) but pretty sure I do not pull it off as well – and for sure my hair and makeup only look like that for ~30 seconds in summer heat!

  • alliekat9090

    Had a good friend whose husband had a job with FOX TV that entailed meeting a lot of celebrities. He said that of all the women he encountered Keri Russell was far and away the most beautiful. She looks terrific in both these looks.

  • webslice33

    Gorgeous!! Ist pic, clean and chic! 2nd pic, hot & slutty!

  • Columbinia

    The black pants are a mess, but she manages to look good.

  • BLauDGaspode

    Had to look up how old she is because she always looks gorgeous and somehow ageless. Seriously, how does she stay so beautiful??

  • umhumph

    “Meth hair” – HAHA! She looks great, though, no denying that.
